It depends on how things were worded in your purchase agreement. Most builders have something to the effect that if there are cosmetic issues you must still close and cannot force the builder to escrow money for the repairs. The roof is a different topic.

If you have established credit again, like a credit card, car payment ect... after your bankruptcy then you should be good to get another Mortgage.

Unless the seller has a recent survey available, I would definitely want one. Are you buying a lot in an existing subdivision, or elsewhere? If not in a subdivision, have you checked for scrub jays, which are an endangered species found in that area?

Running electricity to your lot can potentially run $20,000 or more. And I haven't as yet mentioned the cost of a septic system and well for water if water/sewer lines are not available.

I did a quick search for you in the MLS for similar homes and here are the results: Active listings (your "competition") are listed for $242,500-$340,000. Pending lists are listed for $300,000-$389,000. Recently sold listings, within the past 6 months, sold for $242,500-$325,000. The average marketing time for a home like yours, if priced at market value, should be on for 65-125 days. For a thorough market analysis, please call or email me so I can arrange to see your home and provide you with a more accurate estimate.

You need to contact the listing agent who put the ad on Trulia and ask them to edit it removing the pictures. Much like a newspaper, when an ad is printed, they dont go gather all the papers that already have been sold. There are many more sites like Trulia that may also have these pictures. The agent who placed the ads can edit them easily.... more
