Make sure that if you do find a property in Harvey that you like that it doesn't get stripped during the escrow. This happened to me and the bank stole my deposit, twice. Plus an agent in the area who also says she is a :contractor" I trusted her with $$ to do a remodel and she took the cash and went
with her kids to the beach, hired flakes and lied to me about it. Then called me screaming for more $$$. So yes, Harvey can end up being a big money pit.

Oh I did buy a duplex there and the selling agent told me he had a woman with good credit to move in and protect it. Turns out she had awful credit, never paid a dime for @ 6 months and then I had to hire a cop on off duty to get her out and have the city put an unlawful to inhabit sticker on the duplex.
When she finally left the place was stripped to the walls, flooring, carpet, furnace, sump pump,
$40k worth of new supplies all stolen. Then the insurance company I had Fireman's Fund spent 3 months searching around Harvey to find someone who would bad mouth me so they could incriminate me for fraud. They couldn't find anyone, so they fought me anyway and only paid after a year of fighting @ 20% of what they owed me.

I can name names if you need...beware, Harvey can bankrupt the best of us.

Hi there-

Which home are you referring to? Please include the listing or contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Best,
Ali, Trulia Voices Community Manager

Perhaps your question was cut off--since no link is visible and no address given, if interested in knowing the property's current status, contact any local agent/realty office, they all have access to the same information. ... more

Hi Cartillmanjr,

Yes you can. Some loans are assumable loans and you need to take a look at the paperwork. Your credit rating is often used to confirm you can qualify for the loan assumption. Another way that is very popular in your state is through a Land Trust you take over the property by Subject To the existing financing. There is a class in San Francisco on this and another type of an expert in Florida. Here are two links to assist you learn more about this strategy.

Hi Judy,

If you are looking for rentals, Trulia does not list them. Your best bet is Craiglist (link below), www.rent.com, and your local classifieds.
