You can't. Real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. do not have permission from school districts to list homes by school district boundaries. All purchase contracts have a clause that states it is the buyer's responsibility to verify all information about the home - including verifying the school district the home is located in.

You need to understand that the boundaries for school districts can vary from the boundaries of the town or city the home is located in. Websites like Zillow and Trulia rely on public information. School district boundaries in many locations are NOT public information so it's not available to websites. These websites get their school information from greatschools.org which is not reliable for any specific school district. Just use it as a guideline.

Hello, The best advice I can give you is to get representation from a broker who knows the foreclosure business. I am a former foreclosure and REO Manager with a local bank, and I know the business from the inside out. Call me and we can get started.

Tony Grech answered:
You'd have to do a cash out refinance or get an equity loan/line of credit on either of these homes.

Generally you can borrow 80-90% of the appraised value on either home, so I would want to know how much you owe (if anything) on both of the homes, along with how much they are presently worth. Based on those amounts we can put together some options for cashing out some of the equity to put towards the down payment on another property.

In general, a cash out refinance will give you a better interest rate, but the closing costs are more. An equity loan will carry smaller fees, but the rate will be higher. So if you're talking about a smaller amount like $10,000-$50,000, you would probably want to do the equity loan. If you need more than that, a cash out refi might suit you better.

No way to tell without knowing more details. so feel free to call me and we can discuss things further.

Be sure that you have the proper qualifications/pre-approval to purchase any home like this so that IF you decide it is the one, you are prepared to submit your offer and proceed toward closing promptly.

Your Agent will appreciate this, but more so, you will benefit by not getting beat out by another buyer and you can shop with confidence.

If you need assistance with a mortgage loan or the pre-approval process feel free to give me a call.

Good Luck!
