Have your agent correct it. Trulia isn't a brokerage and doesn't have access to our MLS. Your agent would either need to manually post/edit the information posted on Trulia/Zillow or they would need to use a 3rd party service to syndicate the listing to Trulia/Zillow. If you agent has trouble they can reach out to their broker or office admin for assistance. ... more

I would recommend getting a divorce attorney. Going through a divorce is stressful enough. Going through it alone is worse. Divorce attorneys are there to support you, and not only financially. Your lawyer has your best interests in mind and will support you emotionally as you go through the divorce. Find one that you feel comfortable with and your divorce will go a lot more smoothly. ... more

Sounds like it is a personal preference. Buying in different ares, as close as these zip codes, isn't really diversifying. There are managing reasons someone would want to stay in the same area - easier to manage. Diversifying would be buying apartments and commercial properties or buying in different metro areas.
Your return on investment is based on each property, when you buy it, not on the zip code.

JR Thrasher answered:
When you say "close on a house" do you mean buying or selling? If your are talking about your ex buying a house, probably not, but check with your lawyer. If you are talking about selling, maybe. It depends on whether or not he owned it before you were married, if funds were comingled; if you were ever on the deed, how long you were married and about ten other variables, again check with your lawyer.

Since it seems like you are looking to eventually own a home, have you talked to a lender yet? I would recommend talking to a lender to first check if you can currently secure a loan, if not most of the time they can refer you to a credit repair company to improve your credit. My wife was kinda in the same boat as she thought she had poor credit but was actually able to quality for a loan. ... more

There is not much you can do. Just be glad you have an acceptable offer and you can be rid of the house. If this woman is that bad and under handed just remeber what goes around comes around. Good luck. ... more

You need to consult with an attorney to see if you can legally get out of the contract, without penalty. If not, then sometimes offering the seller part of your deposit can help in getting out the contract legally, but make sure all this is in writing and reviewed by an attorney. ... more

Anthony "Tony" Rosica answered:
Anybody is capable of doing anything, but in general sellers want to see the short sale happen, because they have a better chance of preserving their credit in the long run. Banks usually cover most outstanding bills, including property taxes, unless they know the owner has available cash to assist in payment. ... more

Anthony "Tony" Rosica answered:
I'm not sure that cash really helps you in a short sale. I have seen good deals had with mortgage offers. In fact, one buyer kept his option open and made the offer mortgage contingent. He received agreement on a price and decided from there to go cash. He received a better value than any of my other short sale. I think short sales are more about how many properties the bank wants to clear off their books that month, than whether they are getting a fair price for the home. ... more

Hi Bruce,

It's been over a month since you posted your question to this forum, but I thought I'd offer my 2 cents to the discussion, in case you haven't yet found a home. You live in Folsom, another nice community. Will you be moving to Elk Grove or are you looking to purchase an investment property?

If you ask about a "good" area to purchase a home in Elk Grove, you will get a variety of responses, many primarily based on the individual's own opinion, something you may have already noticed. I'm curious to know what you mean by "good". Are you looking for highly rated schools, is safety/low crime a top priority, do you need to live close to shopping, restaurants, and freeway? Is a high return on investment your goal? If you were to identify what you value the most in a home or neighborhood you want to live in, it might be easier to pinpoint the areas your agent can recommend for you!

Best of luck to you in your search :)

Angie, we do have condo at this price, and few in 95758 at $199,000.
