Both Trulia and Zillow are refusing to publish our review of Joni Hinton who was our agent when we bought our first home. She played us for fools when we put our trust and faith in her. Our review was honest and included only facts, facts of course that reflect badly on her. How can the public ever be warned to avoid inept agents if these sites are protecting agents to this extent?! It makes us question the integrity of both these sites and what they purport to do for the public. ... more

There isn't anyway to do it. Only real estate professionals can add and edit property information.

Karen Peyton answered:
You should also try looking elsewhere to find a mobile home. Why? Because Trulia is a real estate website, and while mobile homes are sold and rented, they are attached to land. Without the land, a mobile home is personal property. Real estate agents don't sell personal property. Any property listed for sale includes land, and it's highly unlikely an owner would part with the dwelling to sell a vacant lot, if the home is habitable.

Suggestions? Mobile home parks nearby, and Craigslist.

Best of luck!

This happens frequently. There are a variety of reasons as to why a home is foreclosed on, but does not go up for sale right away. What is the address? We'd be happy to look it up and see what bank owns it. Thanks! Amy ... more

Hi Barb!

From your email, it seems as though your credit score is the issue? I would recommend speaking to a licensed mortgage lender that is experienced in the industry. You're going to have much better luck speaking to someone about your specific issues rather than a message board full of strangers. There may very well be options for you - the right lender can make all the difference!

Best of luck!

Yes, lenders can work with fixed income. On the other hand, how low is your credit? Lenders like myself can go as low as 580 when it comes to credit scores. So if you are above 580, you should be fine. Otherwise I recommend that you work on your scores. Of course, your other finances will need to be in place as well including your income, debt, assets, employment, expenses, etc. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender like myself to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

Keep in mind that realtors have better search engines available for real estate than is available for the general public. When you are looking for a special place like this, I recommend finding an agent to work with who can send you properties automatically as soon as they come on the market that fit your profile! ... more

Simon Campbell answered:
First, check and see if there is public water. If so, then most likely the governmental authority for the area would require you to connect to their system. If not, then you will need to check with zoning and planning to see what are the requirements. Also, you will want to find out how deep are typical wells in the area. Installing a well can be a very expensive undertaking. If the current well is working well and able to support all three households, I would consider keeping the arrangement - but putting the terms down in writing and record the signed document. ... more

Jessica Bateman answered:
I work with a lot of people who have less than perfect credit. I tell all my clients that need a pre approval to visit The Lenders Network, I have seen loan approvals from them even with scores under a 600. So if anyone can get you a loan they can.

Good luck to you!

Karen Melillo answered:
You should get a specialist for the area you are dealing with.
Ask your Agent in CA to refer you to a great person in Kingman. That is the best way.
Then both agents can coordinate between your selling and buying process.
Speak with your CA Realtor! :-)

Cathy Ott answered:
The process can go as quickly as a couple weeks or sometimes less if you are purchasing a vacant house so you don't have to worry about the seller needing time to be out, but I always suggest you take advantage of your 10 day inspection period and hire a professional to inspect the home for you so you have a good idea of what you are getting into. Although we can usually get a home inspection set up for you within 3-4 days so that doesn't hold you up too much. Please let me know if you have any further questions about buying in the Kingman area if you aren't already working with an agent. ... more

I had a client who wanted to buy a home in Arizona, but he had a foreclosure. After researching the web I found a loan program at, they allow a mortgage after a foreclosure. There is no waiting period. Good to see lending options coming back. ... more
