I called the guy and its rented. Trulia should have taken it off - a while ago.

This is a good example to point out that even as helpful technology is driving our culture these days, you still need a real estate agent to act as a concierge to guide you through tough times and make sure you are not wasting you time with rented apartments. While everyone else would have been taking you to this apartment, I would have been three apartments ahead of them simply by calling and reading everything about the property.

First is the Trulia link:

Then inside that link is another link:

Lots of information in there....
The point:

Most every apartment will go for a one year lease minimum. The longer the lease, the less you will pay (or less it will go up each year) in the the long term per monthly rent. Likewise, if you need a place to stay for three months, the normal short term lease, it is going to be about 7K a month, usually furnished.

Call Douglas Elliman's Relocation Program: Chris Haney is my contact there and can help you find someone there who understands your needs and will help you find something you might be looking for if its for the short term. Please tell her I referred her to you! You can even just let me know on this blog if you do call her.

If its just a year lease, of course the Voda Team would be happy to help you.

First is to get all financial paperwork, letter of employment, you must earn about 40 times the rent - which is about 86K (for this apartment) off the top of my head, letters of reference, possibly some other materials based on you.

And then be ready to take an apartment you like right away.

You need an agent like myself to get you there before everyone else so you can see the cream of the crop.

Not too many people, if any, in the greater New York City area especially Manhattan know about the DS industry, because it never affected NYC like it did the rest of the country back in 2008. Anyone can tell you they can help you "buy" something , however anyone that really knows about Bank Owned and REO properties will say they are almost all located in the outer boroughs and in less desirable areas. For most New York City sales people, this arena can be quite foreign to them. I have been disposing assets for large banks since early 2007. Atlantic Pacific REO, First American REO, Litton Loan Servicing LLC, LPS Management System, Integrated Asset Services, Old Republic Default Management Services, Power REO Management, Bayview Financial Services, CALREO Management, Brighton Real Estate Services, Financial Asset Services, Special Asset Management and Fannie Mae Direct just to name a few. I know the industry inside and out from Cash for Keys, All Initial Services, Evictions, and Property Management to the closing. I have managed and lead a real estate team that allowed me to close and personally oversee more than 500 REO/RE transactions within a 7 year span. I am the Principal Broker at my company and an expert in the Foreclosure process, and can confidently guide anyone through this process, even in a unique market like Manhattan.

This is just a teaser listing from RealtyTrac to make you register with their paid subscriptions website. This may be a quite outdated info, since it says that it's been on Trulia over 180+ days. ... more

This is a listing from RealtyTrac, a paid subscription service. They do offer a free trial, but be careful. I subscribed and cancelled according to their policy and was charged for many months and had to have my credit card company deal with them. I do not know how good or accurate their info is, but they are scammers with the "trial" subscription. ... more

Hi Cheri!

That's a good question! You should work directly with an agent who can help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

This is not for sale. If you read the property description, the forclosure process has already been completed and the new owner is in possession.

Dear Luis,

You will have to pay a membership fee to RealtyTrac to obtain any information about this property. Please proceed with caution, since the information is updated and liens against properties are resolved before they actually go to foreclosure.

If you are not working with an agent, please consider doing so, you do not pay a fee to have a buyers agent represent you, unless otherwise agreed to.

Good luck.

Unfortunately it's not a real sale. Don't waste your time on it. If you are interested in that area contact a buyer's agent and be prepared to pay a lot more.

Contact an agent in the area you are interested in. Listings like these where the price is a fraction of what the true value would be don't exist, and if they did it would be less than one in a million. ... more

Jill Raff answered:
HI Kelly!

I am currently working with another investment buyer just like you (also posted here). I've set him up with my great reliable and trusty mortgage brokers and will soon begin his search. It is always best to work with a dedicated agent who will be looking after YOUR best interests and take care of everything for you. I would be happy to do that for you if you'd like to talk, I'd love to discuss more of how I can help you with my great support team. It would be beneficial to you as well, since I'm in the investment property search mode anyway.

I hope to speak with you soon.

Keep in mind that RealtyTrac's information may not always be accurate and oftentimes can be misleading--some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be, if the default is satisfied by the owner. If you are interested in foreclosures, work with an agent, as most do end up being listed by a broker--he/she will have access to reliable information--also don't overlook traditional sales as some may turn out to be a much better bargain than some of the foreclosure properties. ... more
