Thank you for reaching out. Currently, Trulia site do not have the feature to know how many views the property has. This is something that's on Zillow. We value your interest in our company and I have forwarded your suggestions to our specialists.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Dan, if you're an agent, you should be able to make these changes yourself. There is no one from Trulia here, monitoring the Q & A section looking for ways to help us agents. Your set up as a consumer, not an agent. Maybe that's the issue? Maybe you also need to educate your seller about Trulia and how the info here isn't necessarily accurate. Hopefully your MLS has the correct info?? ... more

Be careful for the due on sale clauses on your mortgage and how the actual transfer of ownership takes place. There are a lot of ways people can take advantage of you in this situation!

1st Timer,

I agree with Patrick. Just make sure you close on your home first and then on your lot. You should be fine to claim your $8,000 tax credit. Good luck.

I think you should start over, the mortgage may be higher and a lot higher than the value of the house.

Lots to answer, I would not get excited about FHA until you have the inspection. Then decide what to do.
That cancellation question came up before. They can not cancel the contract with out your approval(signature). They have to do a declaratory cancellation, Minnesota law, 15 day waiting period.. It appears most Realtors do not know about it. There is a risk in doing the repairs yourself. You are not the owner, permits would have to be taken out by the owner. Otherwise, you have to be a licensed contractor. Do a search of FHA repairs, the rules have changed, minor stuff is now passed on, paint for one. Between you and your Realtor you should be able to determine the roof condition. Do not let the seller intimidate you, call their bluff. Big problems will be problems for any conventional buyer. A little negotiation by your Realtor can go a long way. How old is the house? How long have they lived there? ... more

Julie, you've gotten a lot of advice about how to get out but if you do in fact short sale your home, you and your husband probably won't be eligible to buy another home for two to three years.
If your current lender agrees to a short sale it most likely will be reported as "settled" on your credit report. Under current guidelines, a lender would treat that the same as a foreclosure.
Here's hoping you can get your condo situation resolved. If you do it will be imperative you keep your credit spotless after the short sale or the time frame when you can own again will be that much longer.
Good Luck!

Will their be a Tenancy in Common/Kind choice at closing. Consult your attorney. In this case, a Will would be a good idea. The judgements will stand until paid. Are they for unpaid child support? If something happens to your daughter, you will be still on the mortgage. If the house goes to the husband, you will be in the middle. My wifes friends shared a house, one was killed in a unfortunate accident. They were tenants in common, half the house went to the estate. It turned into a family fight over the house, with the half owner in the middle. ... more

Hey, Dann! The public websites that say they provide information about sold houses are proving not to be very accurate. You should contact a REALTOR in the Twin Cities. We can find that information relatively quickly. ... more
