The MLS now has an imbedded program, RPR that can help realtors find all properties that are getting ready to be foreclosed. Its an amazing informations source, great for everyone looking to cash in on the foreclosure market. Not only can I see my own city or state, but I have the entire US at my fingertips. All I need is a zipcode. ... more

A great question for your favorite bank or lender.

I have seen one year income used as 2 years if it's substantial income. In other words, the lender took the one year, divided it in half & counted it as 2 years. Again, a person must have a high enough income to make this possible.

Good luck with the "house hunt"!!

At YOUR service...

I was just notified of a new post to your question and was wondering if you have been able to take advantage of any of the "smokin' deals" you were hoping to.

I have seen more banks include "no assignment's clause's" lately. They even dictate the amount of earnest money and increase it if the offer is a "cash offer".

I get contacted a few times a month from investors that want to buy homes for 40-60 cents on the dollar so they could flip them. If it was really that easy, wouldn't the nearly 5,000 Realtors in the state of Idaho already be acquiring them themselves since they could make 50% not just a commission?

Sorry for your loss, Purrsnikitty!

You can purchase a property for cash regardless of credit, or foreclosures in the past. As both other agents mentioned, your best bet is to find a REPUTABLE financial adviser to guide you thru the best path for you under your current circumstances.

This adviser should come highly recommended from someone close to you that has many years experience with the adviser.

Good Luck to you! :-))

Marla McWilliams-Lopez answered:
Idaho is a non-disclosure state (your zip is shown as 83815), and the sales amount is, therefore, not recorded. The transfer of title will be recorded. It may not have sold at all, it may have gone back to the bank.

Any local title companies customer service office should be able to give you some info...or contact me and I'd be happy to do some research on your behalf.

Public records in Kootenai County are available at

Good luck!!

One great way is to talk to your local mortgage broker- there are always investors (and potential investors) who talk to them when looking to make an investment such as real estate, cash or not. While they occasionally don't want their names out as an investor, most are looking for like-minded people to network with. Another way to connect with others is join a "community" in our local (Spokane/CDA area) networking site LaunchPadINW, I (as a Realtor) have found it to be a great resource! Good Luck! ... more

Jim Paulson answered:
I just gave a "thumbs up" to Marla. In Idaho, sales prices are not considered "confidential" however, we are still a non-disclosure state. That is why public sites like Trulia are not as accurate for this data as going through a local Realtor.

I am surprised how many people respond to buyer/seller questions outside their market area. I typically only respond to questions in the Boise area, but occasionally search all of Idaho to keep track of questions and comments outside me immediate area.

Definately good advice to get your house under contract prior to looking for another house.

Fortunately for you, it's still a Buyer's Market here in beautiful North Idaho!

We have approximately 4,000 homes on the market, and only selling about 175 per month, so, get your house listed, if not already, and WELCOME to North Idaho!

If you need a referral of a good listing agent in your area, please let me know....

Being licensed in CA, MT, WA & Idaho, I can help you with either Spokane or Coeur d Alene, so feel free to search the entire MLS on my website, or let me know if I can help with any questions you may have about either area!

Good Luck to YOU Megan!!

Feel free to browse ALL the MLS listings in the CDA area at:


You'll find this M LS search engine extremely easy to use, and quite complete.

Good Luck in your search!

Kelly White answered:
This is not a 55+ park. It allows all buyers. However, buyers must submit application and be approved by park manager prior to close. Space rent $305 per month includes water, sewer, garbage and lawn maintenance plus snow removal on main road. The home at 4887 does have a pending offer on it with no contingencies, which means it is no longer available. If I can show you anything else feel free to give me a call. ... more
