Hi David,

The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

The good news is that you don't have to make a 20% down payment for a $300,000 mortgage; in fact, a conventional loan with NO mortgage insurance would only require 5% down. If 5% is still too steep you could even obtain a FHA Loan with as little as a 3.5% down payment. Bottom line is there are options. It's simply a matter of me crunching the numbers so you and your wife can determine which scenario makes most sense for your family.

I recommend that we speak so all options can be determined. We'll weigh-out payment options while ensuring the down payment is within a comfortable range. Please don't hesitate contacting me directly via phone or email, whichever is easiest. I look forward to helping.

Kind regards,

Brian Nguyen answered:
It is hard to truly answer this question without specifics but I will try my best. The important thing to keep in mind is that your ability to get a loan also relies on other factors as well. These factors include employment history, expenses, debt, liabilities, assets, as well as credit score and income. Also, what do you mean by fair credit? Either way, lenders like myself have given out loans with credit scores as low as 580. So if you fall into that category I can definitely help you out, if not I can steer you in the right direction and still try to see what I can do for you. Well with your income, it can still be possible to get a loan but like I said it depends on other factors as well. So I would suggest to talk to a lender like myself so we can get all the information we need to determine whether or not we can get you approved for a loan.

Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can!

Good Luck!

Yes, there was a Lis Pendens filed on 7/11/2011, The LPID # is: 25611 and the Index Num is: 11-010180. The home is an Estate and there are also multiple IRS and tax liens on the home as well. If you are considering purchasing Foreclosures I would advise that you wait until they become REO (real estate owned) when all the liens have been cleared. I am happy to explain the differences to you and work with you to find the right property. I can be reached on my cell at 917-921-5397, you can also visit my website to read more about foreclosures and REO properties at ... more

Hi Larry, greater Westbury is a large area that has many sub-areas within it, i.e., Westbury Village, New Cassel, Salisbury and Salisbury Estates. Westbury Village has the highest taxes because you are paying additional Village taxes. The taxes in all other sections are more or less comparable with the exception of Salisbury Estates where the taxes tend to be higher than Salisbury or other parts of Westbury. The higher tax rates in Salisbury Estates are due to the overall higher price in homes and the type of homes. The Estate section has more Split style homes, many of which are brick/stucco or brick/siding construction whereas Salisbury has more Cape Cod style homes that are typically strictly made of siding. I am a resident and know the area extremely well, if you would like to learn more about the area and the different home styles, etc. I would be happy to help you. Call me at 917-921-5397 or email me at ... more

Hi Sonia, without much information the short answer is yes. However, you really should sit down with a licensed mortgage professional and have a pre-approval done. Typically, if you have negative things on your credit, but your debt to income ratios are good and your overall credit score is above 620 you can still get a mortgage. A mortgage professional will be able to advise you about those blemishes on your credit. Some of them might be easier to have removed than you think, and a mortgage professional can also advise you on the banks criteria for lending which will help you get on track for the future if you are unable to qualify for a loan at the moment. I wish you the very best of luck in your home search, and if you need help finding the right home I will be happy to do so. ... more
