Not sure how it shows on your screen, but in my right top corner is a section called My Listings, where you can click your house and delete it or modify it.

There are some standard guidelines, but there are also exceptions based on specific circumstances. Rather than air all your other details here, I'd suggest you contact a great local lender and provide them will a fuller picture of your circumstances and get a very specific answer.
One thing I would suggest, get some credit re-established. If you do have to wait, time alone won't re-qualify you. Lenders want you to have 2 or more credit lines in process with a perfect payment history since your BK. Best of luck!

It depends on your HOA. Some of them consider it to be part of the interior repairs that most condo owners are in charge of. I'd ask them or read your bylaws to check. You might have to get it fixed to certain specifications as well. HOAs tend to like a certain style or look for stuff like that. ... more

If you used a flat fee company to list your home by owner, you need to contact them and be sure they syndicate all their 'listings' to Trulia. Technically they have a contract to list your home, they are considered the listing agent, and only they can make changes or post here. ... more

Jdhootiejudy: Newer construction and developments are available in every direction of New Lenox, IL. That's pretty much true anywhere in the Lincoln-Way Area or elsewhere in Will County. Some developers even have multiple subdivision and new construction locations ... Hartz Construction being one of them. It's getting harder and harder to tell where one town or township ends and the other begins, especially as you head south.
If you need more specific info, shout out. I'll try to answer as best I can ...

Hi Dan, when you borrow money there is a note and a mortgage.
The promissory note is the IOU, so to speak...for example if you borrow 300k @7%, you promise to pay that note secured by a mortgage...the mortgage is the security instrument which secures
payment of the note. "Securitization" of any note is done by collateral which is the home itself. The note lays out the the terms and the mortgage secures it.

I hope this helps you, please feel free to call me directly with any further questions...happy to assist you with all of your Real Estate needs.

Ida nailed it right on the head. Why get involved in a house that won't appraise for the loan. I will bet you cancel the transaction and the seller will lower their price to the loan appraisal. There are so many houses competing for so few qualified buyers

Kim Noonan answered:
Is that 90% LTV based upon current market value/equity position in the home or 90% LTV @ time of purchase?

You might want to get opinions from a real estate agent or two of your home's current value before starting to invest any up-front fees on a refi. Knowing your probable equity position as it sits now can help you determine your best options. It's a different world out there, both in market values and the appraisal process. ... more
