Cris.inbox asked:
My soon to be ex will NOT sign the deed. Escrow won't accept the purchase without it. I want to go to another Escrow co. This makes no sense.

Angelica P answered:

I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I have created a ticket to Zillow Consumer Care to request the removal of the foreclosure status from your property. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

We are a real estate search engine so we don't represent the homes found on our site. If you want to know who is the owner of the foreclosure property, you may check the county record where the property is part of.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

Hi, there are several factors that go into deciding what the home will sell for. Location, size, age, condition all are things an experienced Realtor will look at in determining the price of a home. If you want me to run a free Comparative Market Analysis on your home, I will look at what similar homes have sold for to help determine a more accurate estimate. Feel free to contact me Elizabeth Roberts 208.906.4210 or email me at I would be more than happy to help you.

If you find a good lender who is well versed in the program then they should be able to point you in the direction of some good contractors. The two kind of go hand in hand.

Do not settle for someone who just happens to offer 203k. Grill them on their experience in the program, because the loan officer/company in my opinion is way more important than the rates they offer. Even if someone is 1/2% lower in rate, it doesn't amount to a hill of beans if the experience is a nightmare. That's why I don't touch 203k's. Too much work and I'm not a pro at them so I'd rather leave it to someone more well versed! ... more

There are several factors that go into getting approved for a mortgage. Income, debt ratio, down payment, credit score.

Talk to a local lender and submit an application. They'll be able to tell you if you qualify and if not, what you need to do in order to qualify.

Hopefully your divorce settlement is clearly written to show that although your name is on the mortgage, your wife is making the payments. Not sure if it'll help with qualifying for another mortgage, since even if it's written in the settlement, you're still technically obligated to pay if if she doesn't, but may help you.

I'm just another local agent.. The information in on Trulia, Zillow, ect. is all just automated information through system reports and often full of inaccuracies. Your agent is the only person that can (or will) proactively change the information on the system. Best of luck! ... more

Your best luck will be out in the Parma, Wilder, Marsing areas. Just property or do you want a dwelling?
Not impossible but these small acreages are getting pretty popular with a house on them. ... more

I agree with Amy.
I have to say;In any area you live in,there is always going to be things that you don't like.
I personally like the idea of a school for kids at risk,as it tells me the community is working to help solve their problems and aren't covering it up,shoving this aside to have someone else deal with.
It creates "community" involvement.We have to all be a part of our "communities".If this isn't what you want? you might as well wrap yourself up in bubble wrap and close the door.
You will miss out on a lot of awesome people and experiences.
We are looking for a home in Nampa,as the cost of real estate is more reasonable,it still has the small town feel to it,and yes? it has some things which may not be desirable to all.
I have lived in both Nampa and Boise in the past,and we are moving from Minnesota which also has many undesirable issues,etc.
Idaho is the best place in my opinion to live,so much to offer everyone!
I can't wait until we sell our home in Minnesota and move to the great state of Idaho( and Nampa area).
