Run as fast as you can from this lifetime of problems!
If the seller informs you that the contract cannot be voided, find the best real estate attorney in the area and pay for an hour of that attorney's time. Rescind this contract even if it costs you money. ... more

Adel_mark2000 asked:
When I buy a condo it will generally not include any land. So after certain time (10, 20.... year), the property depreciation should affect the market value of this condo. Is this true????

The terms of an owner financed transaction are negotiable and at the discretion of the parties. Be sure you hire an attorney to help you complete this purchase.

20%. Lenders will tell you that they can include the PMI as part of the loan but you will pay a higher interest rate and additional fees for it.

It appears that the property you are interested to is in foreclosure status on Trulia. Trulia is a platform for consumers to browse housing information as well as a tool for home owners and agents to list their properties. If a listing is foreclosure or not, it is up to the listing owner to update the status of that property. The status of the listing is unclear to us because it is in the hands of the listing owner.

If you want to know more information about the foreclosure property, you may check the county record where the property is part of or you may also contact a foreclosure specialist near your area for assistance.

You can take advantage of our vast network of agents here on Trulia. You may found the link below.

To search for a foreclosure specialist using our site:

1. Go to the link that I provided, enter the location where you're at and click enter.
2. Click the 'More filters' button and choose 'Foreclosure' under specialties.
3. Click the 'Search' button.

We hope your experience with Trulia is memorable and thank you for using Trulia for all your real estate needs.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
I'm a FORMER realtor and in my opinion the two replies below stink. You need to realize that Sally Grenier is pushing you to buy because she is a realtor and her commission depends on people like you to purchase homes. The reply from US Mortgage in Plano, TX doesn't tell you that reverse mortgages have a catch and is not ideal for everybody.

Honestly, the half truths... So truthfully, do NOT rush into buying anything. Weigh the costs carefully between paying rent, utilities and your other monthly expenses (food, transportation, etc.) and what it would cost you for HOA fees, property taxes, utilities, food, etc. and whether or not you will have a mortgage. Your age should not be the determining factor. Your monthly budget and/or annual expenses + when * how frequent you will use the condo should be the determining factors.

By the way, don't ever listen to agents who tell you that renting is throwing money away. Obviously an agent from Colorado has no clue about the high cost of housing in NYC.
