Maricris A answered:

The property appears as foreclosure 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. As a result the property listings are manually controlled by the listing agent/owner. If a listing is in foreclosure or sold, 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.

For more information on a foreclosure listing, you may check the county where the property is part of or you may need to contact a foreclosure specialist.

If the relationship isn't working out then you have the right to move on. I would suggest that you read your agreement again, though, and see what's required to terminate this agreement.

Whether this issue a deal breaker or not is up to you. No one should tell you to continue to purchase or to terminate the contract. Have you consult your agent? She/he should be able to guide you in finding answers to your questions. If you don't have an agent, well, this is why you need someone to guide you through the process. ... more

Also one other thing that I forgot. Don't go in a check your credit score, because every time you do or a so called lender or even applying for anything there goes your credit score down allot. Also try and keep your bills paid a few days prior to the date they are due that will help your score. but really the biggest thing is all the entries from lenders, banks, car loans anything to where someone is having to check your credit, but be careful what situation you get into. Check on having a company such as LifeLock keep watch over your credit monitoring. They are really good about letting you know who is looking at your credit and why. Allot of times its someone trying to steal your credit so again, be careful. Just a thought. Bobby ... more

You do know you can often add your own pool, it does not have to already be there.

I do not blame you one bit about avoiding Quicken loans.

the monthly payment would be based of
1) Interest rate

3) taxes
4) home owners insurance
5) PMI

Patrick Fields answered:
Hi Edgar,

While there are a few exceptions, you will generaly want to have a credit score of 620. For an FHA loan, you will need 3.5 % down payment and for a conventional loan, 5% down payment. Closing costs will vary based on the amount you finance, property tax rate in the area, and title and lender fees.

To avoid the additional expense of mortgage insurance (MI) included in your mortage payment, you want to target 20% down but this is not required for loan approval, only to avoid MI.Be mindful of your current debt to income ratio as this will be examined by your lender prior to approval. While it may improve your credit score to pay down debt, do not close accounts or open any new credit lines.

Most importantly, select a Realtor in your area to be your guide and advocate and most of the hard thinking will be made easier.

Good luck!

Joe956 answered:
Luis, as a general contractor, and knowing many other fellow contractors, you are not going to get a construction loan directly without using a builder. For investment properties we have to sign under each others name so I dont see how you would. The only reason is that most banks will give you a construction loan / interim loan but without a builder and the proper insurance and warranties, they wont take on the loan. ... more
