No link is visible, but be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, they are not real estate companies and used for advertising purposes; the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.

Tim Moore answered:
ONE?? You are not counting well.

Assume that all rentals here are scams. They will want you to send money to them for some reason. Don't!! Those are the scams and they are abundant here.

To report a scam listing:
Go to the listing - find the link named MORE, under it is a drop down menu with FLAG - Click it

Also - Never Ever send money = those are scams. Never pay for an application = those are scams

Kary Krismer answered:
You have a bigger issue to consider. I don't remember if VA uses its own forms, or an addendum attached to the standard NWMLS forms, but if latter and probably even the former, you may be committing fraud. The standard NWMLS has a clause saying you're not relying on contingent funds, and if you need funds from the sale of the house as part of your purchase money funds, those would be contingent funds. So you would be knowingly making a false representation in order to get the VA to act.

I'd suggest rather than consulting a website you consult an attorney.

Trulia does not monitor the question and answer section which is designed for consumers to ask questions of real estate professionals. They will not see your question.

I am HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED WITH TRULIA. The real estate industry deserve better. I can't get a customer service rep to return my call and their website complaint section is not working.

Too be honest, it is hard enough to find anyone that will finance mobile homes, much less refinance a older 1979 mobile regardless of tie downs, if you put a skirt on a mobile, its still a mobile. Your 5 acres is what has value, in my opinion, a 1979 out dated mobile is not worth very much. I hear about people not being able to re-finance their modern mobile homes, and you have a 1979. ... more

You have to find new or temporary housing, unless the buyer will allow you to hold over (possible but somewhat unlikely).

Ken & Kim,
You didn't indicate an address, so we can't help you. Please be very careful with rentals on this site and any that allow the general public to post. There are many scams out there that clone existing for sale listings and collect deposits while saying they are out of the area, or the country and just want a "good person" to take care of the house.
Contact any local agent to pull up the address and confirm it's a legitimate rental and then schedule a time to see it.

Kary Krismer answered:
It depends on how the form 22SS is filled out. It will likely either be X days after you and the seller come to terms ("mutual acceptance") or X days after notice that the bank approved the sale. It's a negotiated term.

Short sale negotiators tend to like the former so they don't waste their time negotiating a sale that isn't going to go through. It's not a horrible idea for buyers either, because waiting for bank approval can mean several wasted weeks if not months.

Each landlord determines what they will accept for credit. I would encourage you to get on the phone and contact the local apartments in the area you are interested in and see what they say. You are not alone in having had credit issues. There are lots of people in your shoes and landlords need to have their units filled. Make some calls and see what you can find. ... more

Ah, by responding to an old thread, Ron gave us a trip down memory lane.

Sad to see how many agents did the wrong thing (give tax advise--most of which was clearly incorrect or possibly incorrect).

Good to see how many agents gave the correct advice--consult a tax professional. This is a situation where a little information (e.g. knowing of the Mortgage Debt Relief Act) can result in giving the wrong information.

Sad to see that the person asking the question responded negatively to what was the elephant in the room--Keith's answer asking why she didn't know the tax consequences before going into the sale. That said, Keith's answer could have been better worded, and should have avoided giving incorrect information.

Yes, this home is on leased land. It is a new lease with a duration of 15 years. The present lease payment is $5200/year. I believe that the land leases adjust every 5 years.

Ed Finlan answered:
Most of the time the utilities will work with you and turn them on for 24-48 hours so you can inspect. If they won't do it for free, I typically (as the broker) take that on.
You won't need the stove for the inspection but you will for the appraisal. You need a cooking surface for the home to be considered inhabitable. I do quite a few short sales mostly on the seller side but a fair amount of the buyer side and I am fairly close to your location. If I can answer any more questions, please feel free to contact me. ... more
