Andrea Pannell,

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to 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 Trulia 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!

Ali, Trulia Voices Community Manager

I am pretty sure that there will be a solution in which you will end up buying the house if the only problem is the one you stated. Just in case, to answer the down payment part of the question, your realtor should include a clause in the binding contract stating that the contract is subject to purchaser obtaining/assuming a loan. ... more

You got some answers below..... but I would like to add something for your consideration :)

I am not a Real Estate Broker from your area of interest, but when I see a question like yours, then I always wonder why a Buyer anywhere is not working with an experienced local Realtor, a Buyers Agent, one who will work on behalf and in the very BEST interest of the Buyer, not only finding the properties, showing them, but also getting the Buyers pre-approved by a lender, so that they will buy within their limits and comfort zone, but there are so many details to pay attention to like the various terms of the offer, negotiations with the Seller, earnest moneys, inspection, appraisal issues, walk thru, estimates for repairs, market analysis for a property so that it will be a competitive offer and sooooo much more.

Buyers Agents are usually if the property is listed on the multiple listing services i.e. listed by a real estate company/brokerage paid by the Seller's side at the closing out of the Seller's proceeds, i.e.
the Buyers Agents services are free to you the Buyer, but your commitment and loyalty to one Buyers Agent will be required....

Give this some thought, as the questions you asked are concerned, your Buyers Agent will be able to get you all the answers, and more than that also what the assessments cover, as this is different for each condo, pets allowed or not etc. etc.

Sincerely yours,

Anna M Brocco answered:
Much will depend on what was agreed between you and your landlord, did you have discussion with him/her, regarding your dilemma--do you have an agent, and if so what is he/she suggesting; also consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate if the deposit is not returned, and see what options you may have. ... more

If you could give me more specifics of age of home--new construction vastly different from an older home, style and size I could let you know what is available and where. Give me a call/ email me and I can send listings, no obligation. I've seen homes from 99K and upward, again it depends on the property and condition. I just previewed a really nice Victorian in need of minor repairs and updating for 150K ... more
