The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this I am unable to edit the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and if correct with your county will be updated on Trulia when the updated data gets sent to us. My best recommendation would be to contact your county to ensure that the public records are up to date.

If the county records are correct and Trulia has not received the updated data yet, owners have the ability to edit their home facts on Trulia which appear in the 'Owner Information' section. Please know that edit home facts feature is currently removed from the property pages while we improve the feature. While we do not have a specific date for when they will be available, I can assure you this is only temporary. We thank you for your patience.

Thank you for using Trulia!

I don't know of a lender that will write a loan for 30K. The tax lien might not be your only problem.

That's going to be REAL tough. Although there are a handful of lenders out there that will do FHA with as low as a 580 credit. The 580 credit alone will generally not result in an approval unless there are supporting factors in your favor - 3 credit scores, higher than a 3.5% down payment, low debt-to-income ratios, etc.

Based on your question it doesn't seem like that is the case and my intuition tells me you're going to find it difficult to impossible to get approved for a loan now. So what I would advise is to find some place to rent while you work on building/repairing your credit and saving up a little money for a down payment and closing costs. As far as 0% down programs, USDA might be an option if you can get those scores up to about 620-640.

Everyone has a right to a roof over their head, but OWNING a home is a privilege not a right and the goal should not just be to become a homeowner but to remain a homeowner for a long time. If you try to shortcut the process before you are truly ready then you may be asking for trouble down the road.

Hope this helps!

Bank owned properties tend to close much quicker. The short sale process has improved, but it still can be a lengthy process. Its important to work with an agent that has done a short sale. This will help in the many demands and questions during the process. ... more
