It appears that the property you are interested to is in foreclosure status on Trulia. Trulia is a platform for consumers to browse housing information as well as a tool for home owners and agents to list their properties. If a listing is foreclosure or not, it is up to the listing owner to update the status of that property. The status of the listing is unclear to us because it is in the hands of the listing owner.

If you want to know more information about the foreclosure property, you may check the county record where the property is part of or you may also contact a foreclosure specialist near your area for assistance.

You can take advantage of our vast network of agents here on Trulia. You may found the link below.

To search for a foreclosure specialist using our site:

1. Go to the link that I provided, enter the location where you're at and click enter.
2. Click the 'More filters' button and choose 'Foreclosure' under specialties.
3. Click the 'Search' button.

We hope your experience with Trulia is memorable and thank you for using Trulia for all your real estate needs.

At least 120,000 combined income. Reasons, taxes, insurance, utilities, money saved for education or your children,401k savings, medicl, upkeep on home, Car and insurance, commuting costs. Of course if you are putting down only 10% you will need a lot more. Do not get trapped into thinking only about the mortgage payment. ... more

Don't let the loan qualification process scare you away.

Believe it or not, there is plenty of money to lend to qualified buyers. Buyers with fair to good credit will find that banks are eager to finance their home purchase.

You will begin by answering a few questions, followed by your authorization to check your personal credit score. From there we move on to verifying your income, assets, and some basic application information.

Although the financing market has tightened, there is still plenty of money to lend to qualified buyers.

Please feel free to contact me should you have any other questions. Good Luck on your home search and loan qualification!

The Internet provides an array of values for real estate that is often outside the true market value. Some websites are in tune with values while others are way off base. Where should a person seek advice regarding the values locally? The answer is the local Realtor. The real estate professional can offer information that can easily help you in determining true value for any local property. Sellers will list their homes according to information available about local homes sold. This does not mean that they are listing at market value. Most sellers are asking above MV and end up wasting valuable time trying to get an overestimated price. The marketplace right now is heating up though because of a low supply of housing inventory. Mortgage rates are certain to start climbing, too. Actual selling prices for 85% of homes sold generally falls under a 5-7% differential from asking prices once the seller is at MV for the property. Distressed properties are sold at higher differential rates because of the lack of interest from the buyer pool. Ultimately, good values in real estate are easy to spot and often quick to sell. If you are interested in a particular property, make an offer. The seller can accept, reject, or counteroffer the price your offer. You will never know if they are willing to accept your offer if you do not open a negotiation. However, be reasonable. Understand that this is their home and it has a value to them that real estate cannot account for.
Offers that are too low may not get any consideration from a seller at all. Again, ask the Realtor for solid professional advice on how to create and present your offer.

Good morning Perfectphoto,

The fundamental differences under NY Real Property Law are as follows:
CONDOMINIUM: is considered "real property" similar to a house. You get a DEED to reflect your ownership of the property.

COOPERATIVE: is not considered "real property." What you're buying is shares in a corporation. The corporation owns the "real property" or the land and its improvements (the building where the Co-Op is located).

Financing: Traditionally more difficult to finance a Co-Op than a CONDO, but here in New York, with the prevalance of Co-Ops, there are local Lenders who lend often for Co-Ops. In the current lending environment we Lenders are finding it increasingly difficult to lend both in Condos and Co-Ops for a variety of reasons including poor management, delinquent Homeowner's fees, high investor concentrations to name but a few.

My advice to you is this: meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. I personally meet many potential Buyers who believe (mistakenly) that it is both cheaper and easier to buy a Condo or Co-Op. Often when I prequalify them and demonstrate how they could both own a home and how the costs are comparable (sometimes less!) to a Condo or Co-Op purchase, I find my clients' eyes are opened to different possibilities.

Hi. What you'd want to do is meet face-to-face with a Loan Officer. You have a nice down payment. It's a matter of allowing a Loan Officer to review your income documentation, bank statements and credit to determine how much exactly you'll qualify for. It's impossible to tell if you'd qualify by only knowing monthly income and available down payment.

If you're in need of a good Loan Officer, feel free to contact me. Good luck!
