According to this Advice forum, it seems many sellers are complaining about lack of access and control over their listings. Since Zillow and Trulia are now the same company, the policy is you're supposed to edit your listing on Zillow first, then it will populate / sync to Trulia within 48 hours.

Another option is to Google and research "Flat Fee Broker". This method is an alternative to full service brokers. It allows owners to pay a small fee to a flat fee broker to have their home listed in the local MLS system. You will be required per MLS rules to pay a commision to the buyers broker IF the realtor brings a buyer who submits an offer. You still save about 3% by not listing with a full service broker. It leaves the owner in full control for marketing the home, negotiations, disclosures, contract, etc.

Hi Fernando,
Each bank looks at credit scores differently. FHA loans do require a 580 credit score. There are many options when it comes to financing a home. If you have other assets or more money to put down that is always helpful. You can also have a family member co sign on the loan to have more flexibility.

Good Luck,

Info answered:
Hi there,
Stamford roads are plowed very well and timely. Most homes are now on city water. Propane service is very quick. Many homes use propane for gas stove and fireplaces. Zoning is not usually an issue, unless you have wetlands on the property. North Stamford is a very nice neighborhood to live in and convenient to the Merritt Parkway. Please let me know if you have any further questions. ... more

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

If you are buying the home and not living in it then it would be considered an investment property.

The rates on an investment properties are a bit higher than a home you would buy as your primary residence but it's not extreme.

There is no "first time home buyers rate" so you have nothing to worry about there.

It's tough to explain more without having more details on the purchase but if you would like to get in touch with me I can se if I can help you.

We have an office in Branford, CT as well so if you need to see someone in person I can set that up for you.

You wait. The leinholding bank runs the show here and decides when things happen. There is nothing anyone can do to make them mover faster.

Most of what they're doing is combing over the file trying to be totally certain that the contract price is really the market price and that this plan is in the bank's best financial interests. This is not a simple process and the bank might decide it makes more sense to foreclose.

I watched one short sale last year where this went on for an entire year before the bank finally said "No" to the sale. They eventually foreclosed several months later and it just now came back on the market as an REO.
