The Local Listing Broker, that is responsible for Bpo's and inspections on the subject property is usually able to get you cash for keys. Get the agents contact information, call and tell them that you want to move out of the property - but you don't have the cash to pay for moving expenses, etc. They usually give $500.00 - $5,000.00. depending upon the value of the property and the situation. ... more

Seriously? The amount of time it took you to post this, could have been used to actually type in the words on an internet search of, "Fannie Mae Contact Number"...and you would get 1 (800) 732-6643 as a result. ... more

Since you posted from Foreclosures, I can tell you probably never. The homes that appear here from RealtyTrac are rarely listed for sale and when they are, the price is completely different from what appears in their listings.
Find a great local agent and tell them what you are hoping to find and see what may be actually available.

We have an attorney and followed all the steps and then at the last minute Wells said we forgot a form and said we could no longer do a shortcake. Their are proceeding with foreclosure. We still have a buyer but they won't even consider shortsale now. Let them have fun trying to find another buyer for a sick house with mold. Unfortunately we were stupid enough to buy it and 20k of remediation and repairs later and we still had to move out because it was making us sick. ... more

You could ask a realtor to give you a referral. Most of us know someone we could refer you to. If you are relocating some companies have agents who are specialists.

Hope this helps

Hi Shailesh,

I'm wondering what source you have seen that leads you to believe this house is on the market. Perhaps you are seeing a listing on-line with a root source of Realty Trac? If so, it could be a house that has gone to sheriff's sale which is the beginning of the foreclosure process. Realty Trac pulls much of its information from public records which would reflect the sheriff's sale. It may then be interpreted as an available house. However, in Michigan once the sheriff's sale occurs it could be 6-12 months (possibly longer) before it actually is available for sale.

Just a thought....

The relocation agreement should have contact info in it. If the date of the 28th is on the relocation agreement then that is most likely the date which the bank would like to have the occupants out by. The agreement should be offering cash to be out by a certain date(i.e 28th) or they will proceed with the eviction and take the cash for keys offer off the table. The eviction date has to be issued by a judge, and the occupants should have been served a notice of eviction with a court date. The judge will then determine when the eviction date is. Please feel free to contact me at 248-835-8621 and I can try to help answer more of your questions. ... more

The listing of the property in MLS system has the asking price what the bank wanted for REO property. SEV value from the city records can provide as reference point to see what the market value. Based on these you can calcuate the along with costs of fixing things for making the house liveable.

Good luck,

Did you ever make a move? We would like to hear, if you don't mind sharing. If so, did you use a Trulia agent?

Gerard Dunn answered:
Bob is giving good advice. If you have a payment arrangement with the IRS - especially with satisfactory payments for an extended period - your chances of securing a mortgage are good.

Many lenders will look at this as an additional debt - and count it in your debt ratio.

Be sure to have all IRS docs to show to the lender outlining your repayment arrangement. Having copies of checks showing payments made on a steady basis will probably help too...

Good Luck!

If the lien is legitimate and you acknowledge the debt, the lender will require it to be paid.

If you dispute the lien, the lender will require that an escrow account be set up with funds equivalent to the lien amount be held until the issue is resolved. ... more

There are many sites available. I would recommend connecting with an agent to define your criteria so he or she can get you these listings as soon as they become available on the market.

I would like to invite you to visit my site where you can search for foreclosures, save your searches, and get alerted as new properties become available.
