Like many others, I used (optimal word) Trulia as well as other sites to get an estimated value for my home. Since Trulia feels I would prefer to be bothered by an agent, rather than try to formulate my own information, I will no longer use Trulia. There are a lot of other sites with info available, that help with personal decisions. ... more

While everything is negotiable and different per agent/broker. There may be additional marketing cost for a $1mil+ listing than a $200k listing. Some things an agent may do on a high end listing that they wouldn't do on a lower price point listing are things like professional photo's, video, arial photo/video, luxury magazine advertising, single property websites, staging, open houses/dinner parties. ... more

Greetings!
First things first is to speak to a direct lender this will answer the majority of your questions. I'm happy to provide you with a referral that I often refer my clients to use. I recommend a conventional loan if you can qualify that would be a 30 year loan that is backed by fannie mae and freddie mac.
*If you cannot qualify for a conventional loan there are programs out there at higher interest rates (7.5%-8.5%) where all you need to "qualify" is 40% down of the purchase price at anywhere between these would be on either a 15 or 30 year fixed loan. Please email me for further information if you have more questions. Happy to help!

Terry Chan answered:
Hey Miguel,

I'd love to see if I could help, but whether or not you can get a VA loan right now will depend on three things:

(1) Current debt to income ratio. It seems like you have a lot of debt. That's fine, but you have to have the income to support that debt.

(2) Credit score. With 4 maxed out credit cards and a recent bankruptcy, your credit score may make you ineligible for a VA loan. Typically lenders require 580 and up. Some lenders, depending on your credit file, will refer you to a credit repair specialist who will work on your file to get you up to that 580 minimum.

(3) The home has to be VA approved. For a detached home, this is a relatively easy requirement, but for attached homes, the complex has to have applied for VA approval.

More than happy to help. Send me an email or give me a call. Without more information, it is hard for me to guide you in the right direction.

Thanks!
Terry

Hello Michael,

Oceanside is a good investment area. Downtown Oceanside is redeveloping, with that comes lots of great investment opportunities. We live and work in Oceanside but used to live in Carlsbad. Both areas are fantastic places to live. We would need a little more information to property advise you. If we can assist you further please let us know. We have a website that is specific to Coastal Oceanside www.SeaMonsterHomes.com with current sales statistics that may be of help to you.

Hope this helps!

Make sure your loan approval condition is checked - appraisal is a condition of the loan approval.
If the appraisal doesn't come in at purchase price or above, the offer will need to be renegotiated. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Terri,

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others.
