Hello, my name is Catherine and I am the owner of this property. This is a legitimate posting at $2495 list price -- not a scam, however a scammer has lifted the property images and is trying to get people to wire money to rent the property for a $700 price. If you are interested in this home, please contact me directly at 303-946-1877. No funds will change hands until you have a signed lease, in person with me at the property (security deposit). Following that, when you pay first month's rent, you will receive the keys to the property, again in person. ... more

Perhaps, normally something you would ask your buyer agent to speak to the listing agent to arrange to see if possible

You can look at the county public trustee site to see if the property is in foreclosure http://apps.adcogov.org/PTForeclosureSearch/index.aspx.

I did a quick look and did not see that unit listed on the public trustee website (but 747 WEST 96TH AVENUE #3-10 THORNTON, CO 80260 was listed a past foreclosure).

Even if there is no filed foreclosure it is possible there is a distressed sale. You could ask your landlord why she is selling and if the new owners would consider honoring the lease.

Regarding your options, you really would need to talk to an attorney (at your expense or perhaps find free legal resources) and look at the specifics of your situation and lease.

Unfortunately, you need to get your scores up to at least 640. Sounds like you should find some other housing options until you can get pre-approved. Sometimes disputing your accounts causes more issues than it's worth and drags the process out further. I'd be happy to refer you to a local lender who can give you an idea of exactly what you should be doing in order to get pre-approved in the shortest amount of time.

I'm a real estate investor who moved here 28 years ago. Littleton and Centennial have many neighborhoods of tract homes from the sixties and later, but they are established so they've lost that cookie cutter look. I'm going to recommend you check-out the SE quadrant of Denver proper. You will get less house for the money, however there is school choice, (my kids went to Slavens), lots of IB, Montessori-type, charter, and traditional public schools as well as private religious, cultural, and hoity-toity choices. Just about every Denver neighborhood has a park and access to the Highline canal for riding and dog-walking. SE has a lot of Denver's safest neighborhoods, free and paid concerts and art thingies in parks, at DU (Denver University), Swallow Hill, Fiddlers Green, etc. Great access located about 4 miles from downtown or the tech center via highway or light-rail. In my experience, SE is fairly immune to market downturns like the apocalypse that occurred in LV and many neighborhoods here and has low property taxes and water rates comparatively. I work with a local realtor as his "house whisperer" and we have been very successful in finding and closing homes in this uber competitive market. His name is Paul Langerak and he is a native. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have about moving to this beautiful place. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
Is your home listed for sale in the MLS? Are you a home seller or an agent? If you're a FSBO, maybe you've overpriced it? Or have bad photos? There are any number of reasons why you won't have any activity on a listing. Are you trying to sell it in the Denver CO area? (you posted under "Home Selling in Denver", but you're listed as being in Hamilton NJ. Maybe you posted it in the wrong area?

If you're in the Denver area, I'm happy to help figure out the issue.

Sally Grenier answered:
When you joined your MLS you should have looked at their listing syndication policy. This is perfectly legal, and normal. Sometimes you can "opt out" of it, but frankly, sellers love seeing their listings get advertised on these sites. I use it as a selling feature in my listing presentations. But of course, when your listing gets put on those sites, they sell ad space to other agents. Maybe you need to talk to your managing broker about the pros and cons of listing syndication. ... more

Not with a 522 credit score. And 625 is around the minimum. I'd be happy to put you in touch with a local lender who can help with credit repair.

Sally Grenier answered:
You could do an "owner carry" situation. I would talk to an attorney and have them draw up a contract with payment terms that work. Without decent credit, she won't be able to qualify for a regular mortgage. And she can't just take over your mortgage. ... more
