than housing. It's real disappointing to have to search 'my price' by having to see all the 'rich housing'. Adding a filter would be great!

You created your serach parameters and apparently didn't put in an upper price limit. You're also learning why sites such as these aren't ever going to replace a living breathing local Realtor. If you're frustrated why do't you reach out to a local Realtor in the area you're focused on and talk with them about what you're ideally looking for and allow them to email you listing that meet your specific parameters. ... more

Hi Lori,

Listings aren't always associated with agent accounts on Trulia automatically, however it's easy to search for your listings and add them to your profile. To do that, access the link below to navigate to the My Listings section of your account. Then, click on the button in the upper-right corner to 'Find or Submit Listings'. You can then search for your listings using the property address, MLS ID, or your email address. Once you've found your listings, just follow the prompts to claim them and add them to your account.

If you need help with this process, or if you are unable to locate any of your listings on Trulia, please reach out to our Customer Service team either by phone at 888-466-3501 Monday - Friday 7am to 4pm PST, or by email via

Best Wishes,

Linda Dressler answered:
Everything that I've seen/found says that pets are accepted upon approval. So it seems that it might be on a case by case basis. Some properties have buildings that are dedicated to being pet free, never having had pets within the structure ever. Others might require an extra deposit for a pet, or that your pet be under a certain size restriction. Your best bet is to contact the listing agent for the units you are interested in to get a more definite answer to your question. If you need help finding out who the listing agents are, feel free to contact me directly with the unit numbers and I will see what I can do to help you.

Good Luck!

John Walin answered:
Your downpayment pays down your loan amount at time of purchase. After that, the down payment is irrelevant to what you owe, and how much equity remains. Depending on the price of the house you still might have some of that $20k if you bought a $50k house. If however you bought a $400k house, very likely that 20k vanished with the declining market and now you have we we refer to as negative equity-you owe more than the house is worth.. ... more

Tim Tilbury answered:

You should locate the trustee handling the sale via your public county records. A trip downtown and a few questions on direction should put you in the right place. Have the complete address and if possible the legal description.

Make sure you know which lien position is foreclosing and any other encumbrances that may run with the property (IRS liens).

I'd it were really easy, not risky and inexpensive (meaning you need to pay cash in full for the winning bid) then everyone would jump in.

I suggest people look into and see if there are free meetings nearby to attend classes and track properties before buying anything. (mentioning my name is appreciated!)

Best of luck.

Hello Ti,
Lee County, which is the areas of FT Myers, Estero, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs and Estero, Lehigh Acres.
We were one of the fastest growing markets in the US a couple of years ago. We were also a area that took some of the biggest hits. Bur the sales for the the month of Dec 2009 made record highs. We still have great deals on properties and it really is the time to start looking to buy irather then down the road. We are starting to see properties values going up gradually, as they should.
The reason for our area to continue it's growth is, our weather and location. We do expect more foreclosures in 2010. Many residents are looking for a GOOD rental. They seem to be far and few in between. That dosn't always mean expensive. I work with clients who are relocating here and they look for nice places to rent. usually 6mos or a annual, unless you are looking to rent out for the season. Which ever your goal is, you want to customize your search, to suit your needs to their highest capacity, I have worked with many buyers who wanted to do the same thing as your thinking, and they have rented their homes out quickly to qualified renters. If you click onto my inforamtion, you can access the listings in the area, or contact me and I would be happy to personalize your search for you. If for any reason if I can be of assistance, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
I wish you the best in your venture!

Would you consider a house swap? We are looking to move further north. We live in Cary, NC (voted safest town in the U.S. a few years ago). The hospitals here are excellent! Our neighborhood is a really pretty, tree-lined, middle class neighborhood, near one of the nicest parks in the town.

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Hi frustrating for you to find a home you love, and then have it withdrawn from the market.

As Patrick already told you, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do at this point.

The only thing I can suggest is asking your agent to try and find out why it was withdrawn, and to make sure the other agent notifies her if it is coming back on the market. Maybe you'll find out that the withdrawl is only temporary......but in any event, you will want to make sure you get a heads up if it's coming back.

In the meantime, I hope you find a home you love more!

Good luck
