This home is an active listing at $85,900. The home is currently rented. Sometimes tenants do not want photos taken of their personal belongings, that is probably why there is only one photo. I would be happy to set up an appointment to show you the home or go and take additional photos to send to you if you are out of town. There is a possibility for a short sale if offers are too low on this home. This home says that it is on Beckham Ct, but it is actually on Beckham St. It is on an oversized lot going around a curve. Let me know if I can provide you with additional information or help you find a home.

Good morning!

The other agents have answered the property questions; I'll focus on the HomePath questions.

HomePath is a specific loan package offered by Fannie Mae (a secondary mortgage market institution) designed exclusively for properties that Fannie Mae has taken back through foreclosure. Because they are one of America's largest banks, they're able to offer special deals on their own properties and then put the mortgages in their portfolio.

It only applies to Fannie Mae properties.

Benefits to You, the Borrower (per the official website,

Low down payment and flexible mortgage terms (fixed–rate, adjustable rate, or interest–only).

Down payment (at least 3 percent) can be funded by the borrower’s own savings; a gift; a grant; or a loan from a nonprofit organization, state or local government, or employer.

No lender-requested appraisal.

No mortgage insurance; ask your lender for cost details on loans without mortgage insurance.

Expanded seller contributions for closing costs allowed.

Available for primary residences, second homes and investment properties.

The Listing shows it has expired and no longer on the market. There are many homes in North Port area, very similar. North Port was hit exceptionally hard in the real estate down-turn and many homes went into foreclosure or became Short Sales. I suggest our website at: to search the area and drive some of the neighborhoods and the town. It's a growing community.

Hi Heather,

I would recommend you to work with a real estate agent. agent will guide you with all information regarding the history of the property, the comparable in the area..
If you havnt picked an agent.I'll be more than happy to assist you.The good news is it costs you nothing to have me work for you. The seller pays the commission. It’s a big
advantage for you to have an agent on your side. Independent
representation tends to make people more
honest. My job it to get you a better price and better
terms on the house you want to own.
Best Regard,

Faye Doyle answered:
I have never had a short sale NOT close! What probably happened to you was that the Lender on the property wanted to net more than your offer would allow. Perhaps it is not the fault of the Realtor. Maybe a credit card lien or a tax lien hit the property. The lender has to pay off all secondary liens. The Realtor has to negotiate all secondary liens to attempt to get them paid off for the Seller. It is very difficult and time consuming. If you are purchasing a short sale property you should ask your Realtor if he/she has had any extended education or experience in closing short sales. If listing a property one should always ask that same question to any Realtor vying for the listing.

Kevin Cloutier answered:
Hi Sheila,

It is a tough position to be in for sure, my clients sit on pins and needles all the time oin these cases. I have a question for you. Do you have a real estate agent representing you in this transaction? If so, why are you not asking him/her these questions? Are they in contact with the banks as they should be?

I have had all of my short sales close one way or the other except in a case where the buyer walks from the wait.

I suggest you contact you agent and look to get the foreclosure postponed while the process is lingering along. What bank is it?

If you are not represented by an agent and this deal does in fact fall through, I would be happy to discuss assisting you then next time so this does not happen to you again if possible.

My e-mail is and phone 239-628-4530.
