Hi There:

Unfortunately, this property is not even for sale. Sometimes the homes that are advertised in Trulia are just public records & not actually for sale.

Below is the link to similar properties that are actually for sale in that area:,Foreclosure+Bank+Owned,Short+Sale/sort/price+asc/

By the way, if you would also like to conduct your own search from a single source that has the entire inventory of homes for sale in Central Florida, you are more than welcome to use our website: This website basically contains the same data base that all the agents use to search for homes.

Have a fantastic day & I look forward to hearing from you.

Good Morning Debi - The answer is yes and no. There are two phases to a short sale. In the beginning no one really knows what the sellers lender will accept for the home so I always suggest making an offer lower than fair market as you will have some hoops to go thru before you find out if the bank will accept your offer. In my experience the bank will alway come back with a "bounce" - This means if the home is fair market value of 200K and its listed at 210 you might want to put an offer in at 190K. Then expect the bank to bounce back to 200k after waiting possibly months.
Now lets say that you dont want to pay 200 - then you have two choices - try countering the bank again at say 195k or just walk away.
Now, here is where the second part comes in. Now the listing agent has a somewhat ( nothing is ever 100% in the banking world) of 200k. So if I were representing you and if the 200k were still a fair market value I would hope you strongly think about offering the 200k. This way you have a good shot at getting the home and most of the months of waiting were already used up during the first buyers time. There are many many variable to a short sale - each one is unique. Look for a good agent you can rely on. I would always suggest you have your own buyers agent. It will not cost you a penny ( fee is already built into the listing and paid for by the seller)

Bank owned or traditional sales will be your best approach. They can close as quick as 15 days. Is this purchase going to be your primary residence or are you looking at an investment. Either way there are some great deals in and around the Maitland, Winter Park areas. If you would like additional information on some other great communities or this one please feel free to contact me!

Donna Tripp answered:
95% financing is most likely the most financing you will find....and that is if you have really good credit and good debt ratios.

My advice is to contact a lender, answer their questions as to your income, debts, length of time at your current job, etc. They will tell you how much.

Take care
