Contact the listing agent of the house you're considering or even better an agent who will represent you in the transaction. Private water usually means the water is not municipal but could also mean (though unlikely) the water is coming from a well. No one on this forum will know the quality of water since the source is unknown, and water quality "reports" (depending upon the source) are updated annually. Again, for answers - contact an agent.

Good luck!

Correct, four units and under are treated as SF residences, but I have not seen the construction loan used in this way personally. If you'd like a referral for a lender that can help you dig into this in more detail, contact me directly and I will put you in touch. Hope this helps, good luck! ... more

We can do it 1 day out of Foreclosure or Short Sale. As long as you have only had 1 event.
We call it 2nd chance. So 1 BK, 1 Foreclosure or short sale. We will count the BK and Foreclosure as 1 event as long as the property was surrendered in the BK and it has been 2 years.

Otherwise.. if no BK. I can do a 20% down loan the day after the warranty deed is recorded.

So we are 1 day.

Current Short Sale Waiting periods for:
Fannie/Freddie 4 years
VA 3

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Sandra,

The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

You may be able to do an FHA loan if you were not delinquent on your mortgage 12 months preceding the short sale. If you were late prior to short sale you will have to wait 3 years!

Updated Kitchens and baths help sell a home, so homes where these have not been updated may take longer to sell and for less. Also, upgrades on big ticket items such as roofs, windows and heating and air systems are appealing to home buyers. ... more

Danielle Nicholl answered:
The buyers are definitely out in droves trying to take advantage of the great lending opportunities. The number of listings is just not keeping track. The good houses are going fast, over list price with multiple offers. But buyers are still demanding, they are expecting houses to be in excellent condition or they will sit on the market for a while. ... more

Most of the websites will provide you with the same information as they are tied to the IDX. Of course none of them are as up to date as the MLS system (and that is just the delay that the MLS will have in making the information available). ... more

We are back to about 2004 prices. Probably will see a slow continued rise in prices. Nothing like what happened in 2005-2006.

RonS answered:
Have you discussed this with your bank? Discussed with an inhouse underwriter what options may be available to you? You MAY be able to refinance before four years due to relocation. You may not, depending on what status of your loan was before short sale. Was it strategic? Was it current? What the short sale beyond your control? Did you relocate greater than 50 miles? Were you in the military?

These and many more questions being answered will help determine when you are eligible. You don't give enough information for anyone here to respond adequatley.

They are all right, it depends on the bank/lien holder. The good news is it is much faster than when the market was swamped with Short Sales in 2008-2011.
