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 request regarding the removal of the erroneous foreclosure information for your home on Zillow.

Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Add a picture? Not unless you're an agent. But you can ask them to do it for you.

Hello Addytude.055
Good morning.

The more FULL baths the better for resale, but sometimes a 3/4's 2nd bath is ok too. Are you still in the market to buy a new home? If so, I would love to see if we can help you out. We can do loans down to 600 Credit Score. We also don't need 3 trade lines like many banks require. I would like to see if I can help you out with a home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process. Please let me know how to help out.
Thanks much.

If so, Would I have to wait another 5 years to sell my home to qualify for the Home Sales Tax Exclusion again? Or is it a one time thing?

Rather than taking up space and wasting other people's time, I'll just say this is old news. I'm a current owner of one of these Light House condo's (five years). Many, if not all of these issues, were worked out by the current HOA. Unfortunately many of these blogs on computers are outdated and based on half truths out of context. It is to our advantage to continue the relationship with Beacon Pointe Resort under the same association for the better rates on services, lower dues assessed, reserve funds, and amenities.

I would hope prospective owners would check out these issues by contacting one of the owners and obtaining current information. Two condos were sold during 2012/13 and some are on the market at this writing. This is a wonderful precast concrete building of 17 units, fully handicap accessible, two underground garage stalls, elevators, pool, sauna, exercise room, inexpensive guest rooms for owner's guests, and car wash. Sounds lovely because it is.

The LLC's and Land Trusts work well.
A lot of good answers here.
Believe it or not being honest with the bank often works very well.
One other option, I know a subject too investor. He has 28 properties and does this quite often. the homeowner gives constructive notice to the bank. Where the seller writes the lender a letter letting them know that they are in a position to no longer pay the mortgage and they are giving constructive notice that they are giving the property interest to another party and submit the letter with the check and send it certified mail and verify that it was received. Often the bank will acknowledge that even though the due on sale clause is in the note, they ignore it and allow the new owner to assume the loan anyway and often document this on paper to the new owner.
Bottom line.
The lender wants the income and a performing note and they do not care who pays even though it says differently on the note.

Tell your agent to get the Buyer's Agent to bring paper. You must have an offer in writing to negotiate. Then counter.

It is about affordability; What can you afford to do or not do. What can the buyer afford in your nieghborhood? It is always about affordability. Try to take the word "value" and "price" out of the equation and address affordability. ... more

Aaron Dickinson answered:
Teri is correct.

As was recommended in an answer to one of your questions back in June, your best bet is to have your agent pull activity and look to see if your competition is selling. If it is, price reduce as you must be too high. If nothing is selling, price reductions may not make a difference. ... more

Hello Mt,

Relisting was a hot topic in the Twin Cities last spring after ABC News aired a story on the practice. Realtors seem to have a difference of opinion on it's merit. I invite you to read my opinion of the practice at;

If the goal is to "re-trigger" any automatic searches that buyers and their agents have set up, that can be easily accomplished without relisting. If a price reduction is not an option, there are other ways to accomplish the goal as well. Talk with your Realtor, they should know the ins and outs of the MLS system well enough to get your listing back in front of buyers with saved searches without having to re-list.

Hmmmm....funny, I thought your question was about signs, not seeling your home yourself!

Easiest way to get the info your are looking for is your municipality. You see, it varies from area to area.

Best of luck in the sale of your home!

Thanks, Todd Norsted
