Stephanie Leon answered:
It will matter is you are bidding in a auction where the bank has foreclosed and has placed the home in an auction or are you bidding at the court house foreclosure auction?

If bidding at the court house it is a whole different thing and you can be responsible for the back HOA fees.

The Florida statue mentioned below only pertains to the bank/mortgagee who foreclosed so they are not accountable for the owners default with the HOA and the bank is protected.

If you are bidding in an auction that the bank has already foreclosed and is the current owner of record who listed the home for sale in an auction then the seller will be responsible and this cost should not be the buyers unless the contract stated otherwise.

David Lang answered:
I can not answer the question about the Open Houses, but I will try the others.
Most of the listing data that is found on Trulia (for non-for-sale-by-owner homes) is listing data that is migrated over to Trulia from the MLS. Because your property does not show up in the MLS (as well as many other places) your property was not considered when the agent wrote the description of the property for sale. About 99% of the information Trulia has, comes from real estate agents and from the local MLS.
Keep this in mind also: as other potential buyers search for homes similar to yours, they are not only looking at Trulia. There are soooo many places for people to look at property on-line that it is imperative that a seller has as much advertising exposure as possible. With ANY product (including real estate) there is a direct correlation to sales price and time frame, by the amount of advertising exposure that product gets. All things being equal, more exposure equals higher sales price in a shorter period of time. You may not like it, but full-time Realtors can still do that better than anyone else.

No, you do not need to be licensed, but being an unlicensed assistant has limits a licensed assistant would not have.

Zach Rosen answered:
Given that you are using FHA financing you will most likely have to pay a year of mortgage insurance premiums up front. Additionally, with FHA financing you will have certain fees that need to be paid up front and held in escrow. If you would like I can put you in touch with a title agent who can draw up a preliminary HUD.

Hope this Helps
