Unfortunately, no one from trulia will see or respond to your question here, in this section.
There no longer are any moderators here.

I suggest you call them, or use the link to the Help Center located at the far bottom right of this page.

Good luck with this........their support is not what it used to be.

Keep calling lenders until you find one that has the right answer. Some lenders, but not all, know how to solve this problem.

If you home is for sale by owner you cannot list it on this particular site, there are others for sale by owner
sites, but why not working with an experienced Realtor to list, price your home right, market and advertise it,
holds open houses, helps you prepare and stage your home before showing it and soooo much more, from
the first meeting through the entire process, including inspections and negotiations....
If you need recommendations, get back to us here....

Good Luck to you!

A family friend,has just sold their summer place in the Hideout due to many of the homes have been broken into. We are looking to use this as a summer place, and will not be there everyday. And in doing my research there is a significant amount of homes that are summer rentals, in which I may not have homeowners available to watch my house. ... more

Good Evening,

Regarding flood insurance premiums in AE Zone....you could expect to pay approx $3,500 annually. However, I don't believe there are ANY homes in The Hideout, that once appealed, fall into that category. 3 options are available to waterfront buyers:

1. Purchase the home...pay the premium and then appeal FEMA zone and receive a rebate.

2. Make the purchase contingent upon re-designation...prior to settlement.

3. During course of transaction, file for a temporary stay, based upon previous designation...this lasts for two years...which gives new owner the opportunity to satisfy requirements for amendment.

Not a difficult process, but you'll want to work with an agent who is Familiar with the process to facilitate.

The Hideout planned ahead when developing the community and the lowest laying areas were set aside for recreational purposes. Those areas include the Marina, North Beach, Holiday Park and the golf course. While those areas don't flood often, every few years we seem to get a superstorm and it may take a day or two for the water to subside. Due to this planning flooding of homes is generally not a major issue for most of the Hideout. However, FEMA recently re-zoned the area resulting in many homes now appearing to be in a flood zone. I know of several homeowners in the Hideout cuurently appealing the designation because it does add significantly to the insurance costs required by the mortgage holder. There are plenty of homes NOT listed in the flood zones, in fact about 80% are not affected. If you would like additional information www.floodsmart.gov is the FEMA flood map site. Hope this helps! ... more

Good Evening,
If you're in a position to offer 50% of investment in cash; FHA is NOT your best option for a number of reasons.
The answers to your questions are far too comprehensive to field in this format. If you have specific questions about financing, I'd be happy to be your resource for answers.

Hi Tom,

The good news is this.....if you're planning on re-investing in a another home....while you may concede a bit on the sale of your Current home....you'll more than make up for the difference when you invest in your Retirement Home. Selling now....and then Waiting to buy...yes, you'll be losing valuable resources.
Another option to consider at this point, is a long-term lease on your current home to hold you over for a year or two while the market conditions continue to correct and home valuations continue to appreciate.

Please always feel welcome to call, email or text....

Eileen and Harry Talalas answered:
With a short sale you are asking the bank to settle the loan for less than owed so yes, all negotiations are with that particular bank BUT you can apply for a loan with whomever you please. You can offer whatever you like on a short sale BUT the asking price is generally less than owed on the mortgage to begin with. Short sales are often time consuming and the bank will ask to see all of the documents up front- Agreement of Sale signed by buyer and seller, pre-approval or proof of funds, Estimate of closing costs (pre-HUD), and whatever other documents they require. Your realtor will be able to handle the process for you but you must be patient as you are dealing with a bureaucracy on the other end. Good luck! ... more

This was a foreclosure property that just went into contract on Wednesday. The house was pretty new but the unfinished basement was a bit musty smelling which turned off several buyers. There are many great deals in the Hideout at the moment and if you like, contact me for a complete list of available homes in your price range. ... more
