Hi,

Thank you for reaching out regarding claiming your home. Please be advised that the edit home facts feature is temporarily removed. We are currently working on improving the feature but do not yet have an ETA on when it will be back on the site.

However, the photos have been removed from our display as you requested.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hi,

I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I created a new ticket request to Zillow Consumer Care to remove the Foreclosure status of the property. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

You need a reality lesson. There are plenty of investors available and most realtors have them as clients. HOWEVER, these investors are only interested in 1 thing - making a profit. Therefore, in your situation, the investor will buy the farm and rent it back to you for a HIGH rental amount.

The investor needs to make money, so your rent amount equals:
The cash price paid for the property divided by X number of months / years
Property taxes (since taxes are paid semi annually or yearly, this amount will be divided by 6 or 12)
Homeowners insurance (annual amount divided by 12)
Maintenance (the investor will estimate yearly maintenance costs and divide by 12)
Labor (the amount of time involved with paperwork, landlord issues, etc.)
Profit (any amount the investor feels they need to have in their bank account after you paid for the above expenses)

Bottom line - this is NOT worth it!!! You will end up paying the investor thousands of dollars more than what the farm is worth - meaning you will lose plenty of money. Typically, investors do buy properties, then either renovate them and re sell them OR they rent it out for high monthly rents. To the investor, it's all about making money.

make sure you do not rent the " house" cottage in roxbury, ct. I have kept owner flagged on craigslist and contacted Trovit. It is a " cottage of horrors" .. no certificate of occupancy as nothing has been touched since 1926. You will freeze,
nothing up to code, no insulation, fireplace flew does not open, no shower water all winter, toilet barely flushes without plunger and a prayer. Electrical boxes are old spool king, rusted shut for your aging electric. Animal feces smell in second bedroom. " No local broker will take this rental on.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Listing agents will always defend their sellers and claim there is nothing wrong with the house. In this region, it's very common because homes are sold "as is". However, I do have an issue with the listing agent cancelling your contract and putting the home back on the market. Are you working with an attorney? I would not sign the release form yet - hold off. The listing agent cannot put the home back on the market until you sign the release form. At this point, I would instruct your agent to start yelling at the listing agent and state you refuse to sign the release form and you want to negotiate the inspection issues. If the listing agent refuses, tell your agent that he/she will contact the Office Manager where the listing agent works at and your agent will have terse words with that Office Manager. ... more

Alan May answered:
One of the reasons that managing brokers like to have agents come in to the office, is so that they can confirm that you're actually making those calls. You might have the work ethic, but they don't know that, yet.

There's also a huge advantage to being in the office... you pick up any conversation in the agents with office... and there can be business to be found in the office.
