Talk to your REALTOR. If you cannot purchase the property due to title issues (and therefore loan approval issues), then you should be able to terminate and get your earnest money back. But no one here is involved in your transaction or has read your contract. That's why you need to talk to your agent asap! Good luck! ... more

Trulia pulls listings from the MLS. If the property is rented and no longer available, the link will be inactive. I do not believe that they are removed for any of the reasons you mentioned. You just happened to run across a property that is no longer available and just has not been updated. ... more

I have seen this happen so many times. Abandoning the property does not mean that you do not own the property any longer. Many times lenders are reluctant to foreclose on properties. There are a couple of options:

Option #1: Sell the house. As long as the title is in your name, then you have the right to sell. At a minimum, you need to sell if for the total of the unpaid HOA fees and taxes plus any of their penalties and any other unreleased liens that are recorded against the home. Anything more than that goes in your pocket. From there you can start to really and truly rebuild your credit.

Option #2: Move back into the house. You still own it. Don't pay anyone anything (i.e. HOA, taxes, loans). One of them will foreclose on you (probably HOA association). Once they gain title, they will have to legally evict you from the house. You could effectively drag your feet for months. Meanwhile, you have "free" rent. But, it will really trash your credit even more.

Option #3: Pay the HOA fees and taxes and regain ownership of the house. If you can somehow scrounge up the money, then you effectively gained your residence back - providing that their are no other liens attached to the property.

Hope that gives you a little direction or at least some choices.

Hello Alexandria22303.

Like I just sold EhmDee, I really don't know why EYA developments are selling for much higher than the Pulte Arts District townhomes. It can be a number of things such as the price,incentives,terms and conditions,floor plan,fixtures in the house,space etc.

Hope that was helpful. Take care.,%20MD&cid=%2715419%27&idx=85288&ptype=1&property_type_name=House_and_Condos&price=200000-300000

No link is visible; however, be aware that many scams do exist. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds to good to be true, it is. For scam related information see links.…

The new construction homes in the area you are looking in vary depending upon sq ft, how many garage spaces, bedrooms, upgrades etc.. Recent sales are from $320,000 - $480,000. The builder you are speaking of has models ranging from $359,900 - $474,900. Also if the homes are already constructed and sitting ( spec homes ) there is usually more chance of placing an offer on the property than if they are in pre construction in my experience. Please contact me directly so that I can better assist you. ... more

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. ... more

Barratj I definitely wouldn't call Hyattsville MD a dump. By the way I see that you are looking for houses to invest in. What is your price range? Are you looking to buy and sell? Are you looking to buy and hold? What kind of financing are you going to be using? How soon do you plan on buying houses? Please call or text me your e-mail address to 202-378-0283 so I can set you up on my drip campaign to send you houses from other real estate investors as well.

Take care.
