As a former realtor in the New York City area, you need to understand that most realtors refuse to work with foreclosures. Realtors are independent contractors and foreclosures take more time and more work involved and the commission is not worth it. It takes much less effort and less time to sell a regular priced home and the commission fee is much higher than a foreclosed home.

You also need to learn that most foreclosures in the NYC area require renovations which you need to pay for. Do you have cash available to pay for renovations + closing costs? There may also be additional expenses with foreclosures that you need to pay for. Examples: any liens, etc.

Sorry, it has been rented. Thank you for your inquiry.
I do not have anything like that at the present time.
When do you want to move in and what is your price max.

That should not be a problem. The lender won't care whose account the down payment is coming out of whether joint or individual...just as long as it is one of the seller's accounts. Verify though with your loan originator based on the type loan you are getting.

Trust your instincts - too good to be true is just that, and has the markings of a scam. Work with an agent so you are seeing only listed properties to avoid this possibility.

I am not sure if the property is still available. Many of Trulia's foreclosure listings have already been sold since their system runs about 30 - 60 days behind. , I would like to recommend http://www.bankforeclosuressale.com. It is a leading website database that contains over two million foreclosure homes, including bank foreclosures, government foreclosures like VA homes and HUD homes, distressed properties and commercial properties that are for sale all across the nation. All of the listings have had any outstanding liens eliminated and the title is free and clear. We also update our extensive collection of listings every day. ... more

I assume you own it. So you find someone to rent it and they pay you rent each month and you continue to make the mortgage payments, utilities (unless you get the renter to pay them) and the taxes and insurance if there is any or HOA or condo fees. What is it you don't understand? ... more

Barbara Reagan answered:
Hello, kperezstl,

This is a great question and one that I get from many of my buyers! A 203K loan is great for fixing up a home, but the interest rate is variable, you need to use licensed contractors, closing costs can be higher, etc. So there is no right or wrong answer to this question-it really will depend on the house, the condition that it is in and whether or not you can live with the house in it's current condition, or if you need to fix and update it now.

Keep in mind that not all lenders offer FHA 203K loans, and qualifying for a loan is a little different than if it were just a straight FHA loan. So talk to a lender who does 203K loans to know how much of a loan you can afford and to find out about the process and the costs before going out to look at houses! This way, if the house you do fall in love with needs immediate repairs and updates you will be ready to make the decision that works best for you!

Good luck!

If you buy with a friend make sure there are agreements in place. Talk with a lawyer. It may be good to purchase a property by creating an LLC first.
