Thank you for reaching out regarding the erroneous foreclosure status on this property page. I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that the Foreclosure status of your property to Zillow has been already removed and I have manually refreshed your property listing page and the changes will take effect after 24 to 48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hi Webbie,

Your best bet would be to drop a nice note to the outgoing homeowners. I would include a self-addressed, stamped envelope to make it easy for them to reply. They may decide to take a few minutes and look on the cans, if they still have them.

Good luck :-)

It is under contract, but since it's a short sale, if you are interested, you should see it and inquire about becoming a back up offer. This way if the first deal falls through, you can be next in line.
Good luck!

Dear Homebuyer,

21 Julies Way was sold to the current homeowner in 2004 for a sales price of $510,000. This home appears to be a distressed sale. The current mortgage, according to the tax records, is listed as $350,000 by "The Lending Tree". You can try contacting the bank, however, they will not speak to you without written authorization from the lien holder giving them permission to do so. The information is considered strictly confidential. In the agent's remarks on the current listing it states that the CO is the responsibility of the buyer, not the seller. Even though CO's are no longer required in Howell Township, a fire certification is, along with an outstanding permit search. If there are no open permits, you're fine, however, it will cost you $50. to find out. If there are any open permits, then it would be the buyer's responsibility to satisfy the township and obtain any necessary ones. I would suggest that you be represented by a buyer's agent in this transaction, if you aren't already. The listing agent is the one who initially sold this property to it's current seller. If the seller did not accept the full price on this house, something is drastically wrong, or you are being given the "run around" by someone. Please give me a call if you would like me to help you purchase this home. I have the expertise to get you results! ... more

boittom line about the pool, it is that different buyer pools see it differently. But again, I agree with the previous posters, in today's market, its not exactly a plus.

Hi Laurie,

Speak with your Attorney, If the appraisal came in less than your agreed purchase price, you may have a way out of this contract. If you are using a FHA mortgage, its common to add a signed AMENDATORY CLAUSE which states
“It is expressly agreed that notwithstanding any other provisions of this contract, the Purchaser shall not be obligated to complete the purchase of the Property described herein or to incur any penalty by forfeiture of earnest money deposits or otherwise unless the Purchaser has been given in accordance with HUD/FHA or VA requirements a written statement by the Federal Housing Commissioner, Department of Veterans Affairs, or a Direct Endorsement lender setting forth the appraised value of the Property of not less than $__________. (Your purchase price)

If I can help you with anything else, just let me know.

I hope all works out well for you.

Keith Radhuber answered:

The definition of a "bedroom" is one that has a closet. There are many older homes with small room which perhaps functioned as a bedroom in the pre-consumerism days when people had clothes that would fit into a trunk at the end of the bed or in a wardrobe (pc. of furniture).

I don't know the configuration of this house in question. Perhaps a bedroom or two is located in the basement where there is only ONE method of egress if there were a fire. Therefore, such spaces also would be discounted as being defined as "bedrooms."

Hi -
There are some excellent answers here by the agents, and, frankly, I am impressed! I am a licensed NJ home inspector for 18 yrs and have on occasion had this question asked of me. It is a legitimate concern, and, rather than go on anecdotal evidence, I once rented a Gauss meter to determine the exact electromagnetic radiation levels at various distances from a high voltage transformer. The property in question was approximately 50 feet deep and the transformer lines were running parallel along the rear of the property on the other side of the fence.

My results indicated the electromagnetic field dropped to negligible readings within 10 feet from directly beneath the power lines and were equally unreadable from the rear bedroom windows, when open. You can hire a licensed electrician to do your on testing. The following website contains useful information:

I hope this help ease your concerns. I find that information in proper context, like the truth, will always set you free!
