Why put yourself--as Buyer OR Seller--at risk by considering a closing outside of a title company's involvement to save $500 or so on what likely is the largest single financially related event in your life. If I am buying a $300,000 home, I would want a "professional entity" (and I don't mean a real estate agent or broker) to prepare the closing documents, collect the deed from the seller and file it with the County recorder's office, make sure the seller's mortgage is paid off from the funds that I borrowed and brought to the closing, and to hold back any unforeseen charges for water or other bills that the seller's responsible for, but weren't paid by the closing. Or how about the property taxes being paid to-date? Those are commonly billed once or twice a year in most states. Gonna' trust the seller to say they're up-to-date? I think not.

You get what you pay (or don't pay) for in this world, folks. Don't trip over a dime to save a nickel.

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.
When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others.

Is your home for sale by owner or do you have a real estate agent? If you don't have an agent send me a line or give me a call. I would be happy to list your home for sale on Trulia along with countless other sites.

Tommy Burris answered:
VA loans are available at 620

Some lenders add their own guidelines to VAs guidelines.... We call these 'Lender Guideline Overlays'

Raising the score a little can still help.... But if there are no significant lates in the last 12 months.... a 620 borrower has a good chance for approval.

There is no sewer odor, I live on the next street, the only odor is when people fish in the tournaments and clean the fish.

In Tampa one of my clients just got an estimate for a pool with a screened in cage and pavers on the pool deck area for $30,000. He is a "shopper" so keep calling pool companies for estimates and with our current economy you may be able to negotiate a very good deal.

All the best,
Alma Kee

Most of my listings come from flat fee brokers. When the market was easy, a sign in the yard got a home sold. Not anymore!! I spend many hours each week for my listed homes.

IN FACT, ANYONE THAT IS SERIOUSLY LOOKING TO PURCHASE CHEAP, 50%OFF, AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEALS SUCH AS FORECLOSURES, REOS, FSBO, & HUDs needs to carry around with them their pre-qual letter so that when you do come across a DEAL of A LIFETIME, the competition doesn't snatch it FIRST!
