You have received some good information below and I will explain a little more. As Realtors we all belong to an MLS Board in the community we work in. We pay monthly or annual fees that can be expensive but we need to belong to these boards. When paying for the service for an MLS we expect the information to be updated on a timely basis and also be accurate. I think my MLS updates the information every 15 minutes. When we work with clients we certainly do not get our information from Trulia or Zillow or any other public listing site. The one thing I hate is when someone like you calls or emails me about a property they saw on Trulia most of the time is is not an active listing. I waste my time and theirs because it is either sold or not on the market. Sad, but true. I will say Trulia does have other great information to get your questions answered about home buying or selling but you have to remember, you get what you pay for.
Your best bet is to work with a Realtor in your area, they can assist you with active listings and give you the information you need in the buying process. Agents get paid when they sell something so it is in their best interest to help you. Commissions in most cases are paid by the seller also, not the buyer. I hope this helps, If I can assist you with anything else feel free to contact me. Unfortunately I do not work in your area but woul be happy to refer an agent to you.

Good luck

Haig Istamboulian answered:

The only things I can think of are;

1. You are an investor and were bidding on a HUD property during the Owner Occupant period.
2. You did not get the bid in during the period they were accepting the bids.
3. Did your agent or broker get the bid in at all? Ask to see the Bid Submission Form.

I hope this helps and feel free to follow up.

Thank you,

You asked this question before and I gave you the link to HUD:

When you go on the site and find the home you are looking for you will see the bid deadline. You do not have to bid full price but if it is a hot property that would change things. If you get the bid they respond as soon as it closes and then you have to submit earnest money (usually 10% by certified check) and fill out their forms, these are all sent to the agent with explicit instructions on how to do it. There are strict timelines for everything but it is a fairly easy process.
Surely there is a real estate office open in Nevada City or Grass Valley that can help you. Good luck.

Ron Rovtar answered:
Though the "experts" keep telling us that there are too many homes for sale out there, it seems that some areas, including Boulder where I work, are seeing a shortage of inventory. We are especially having trouble finding homes in really good shape for entry-level buyers. It seems like people who listed their homes during the last couple years are simply tired of trying to sell and there are few bank-owned properties left.

ii don't know that I have seen anyone from Ecorse answering questions here, but I hope someone jumps in to help you.

Is there a superintendant for the district? If it is a public school, then the district offices are the enxt level up from the principal.

Good luck and I hope you get it all worked out.

Judith Dowdall answered:
Good Morning:

In order for HUD to accept your bid as the next highest, you need to enter your bid with the back up offer noted on the bid form.

If you did not do that, and no other bidders did either, the house is placed back on the market.

Hope this helps,

Lori Jeltema answered:
Agree with comments below. The 'someone' you spoke with is giving you advice that is ignorant and dangerous. Your agent not only stopped you from committing fraud but did so knowing that it would result in a loss of commission. That showed integrity - keep your agent close from now on and don't take advice from your friend again. Sorry you were laid off and I wish you the best. ... more
