Most likey yes. Please talk with a lender to get pre-approved & then click on the profile(s) of the agents that take the time to answer your question. You can read past reviews written by past clients to get an idea of what kind of agent I am & I would like to work with you.
I can recommend Paul Volpe, Vice President at Nova Home Loans, (520) 241-4048. Give him a call, he will answer your questions & see about getting you approved & for how much. There is no cost nor obligation for you.

Good luck. Buying a house should be an exciting & educational process.

Hi Jason:

The number and extent of conspiracy theories is truly amazing. With this one, I can't even figure out the motivation...(is it suppose to be pro-Obama or pro-Romney? What benefit would it have to the banks to do so?)

Arizona is a "Non-judicial" foreclosure state, meaning banks can process them without having to go to court. This accelerates the process tremendously here in Arizona, so that everything I have read indicates we do not have much of a "shadow inventory" waiting to be dumped onto the market. Much of the lower end of the market got, and is being, absorbed by investors. Many other homeowners, unfortunately, are unable to sell due to being underwater so there is a constraint on houses coming onto the market. At the same time, you still have many new people coming into the market, wanting to buy their first home--to take advantage of great interest rates, etc.

In my humble opinion, these are the reasons why there is such low inventory in the Phoenix area, not some hidden agenda by the banks. Or, is it just me???

Michael Emery answered:
If they disagree with the BPO valuation they might order a second BPO. And if the 2nd BPO is wildly different than the 1st, they would ask the agents that did the BPO's to justify their work.

If there were title issues it is doubtful they would've requested the 2nd BPO. And if there was a sufficient time between BPO 1 and 2 (30 or more days) they would request a 2nd BPO prior to listing. So it sounds like it will be hitting the market soon.

Is the listing agent aware of your interest in the property? And are you working with a buyers agent? In most MLS systems an agent can set up an auto email for a specific property which will notify them (and their buyer) when a property hits MLS. They can receive an email in as little as a couple of hours of the home hitting MLS.

Yes, I not only assist investors but invest my self. I just purchased a 5/3 home at the end of June for 104k and sold it 6 weeks later for 155k. One home I bought less then 30 months ago is making me almost $800.00 per month rental income and has over 60k in equity while another I just bought 9 months ago appreciated 60k also.

I would be happy to assist you. I can be reached at 702-321-5067 or you can visit my web page at www.

Hello cgore,
I suggest that you contact your lender, Wells Fargo, to discuss your hardship to see if they can assist you with a short sale or perhaps modify your loan. There are government programs in place to help struggling home owners like you.

Check out this link for information about modifying your loan (HAMP):

And this link for help with selling short (HAFA):

Good luck to you!

Suzie Marquardt Dave Fahrny answered:
I do not think we are going to see the inventory increase any time soon. I was at a meeting with some of the attorneys and brokers in Las Vegas on Tuesday. They are saying the shadow inventory is a myth.
The numbers showed we have 14 days of inventory in Las Vegas. I have seen the demand but I do not know where any additional inventory is going to come from. Are the banks holding out to drive up prices? If they are we should get that answer soon. I would think that they would release properties onto the market with the amount of available properties this low. It is amazing how the market can shift from one extreme to another.
Thank You
Suzie Marquardt

This always surprises me and I find new thing out all the time. There is an old fee in one of my local cities for .50 (50 cents). It came back from the lender as a nonallowable fee. Everybody spent more time on fixing the .50 on the HUD-1 than was worth it. ... more

Jim Olive answered:
Depends where you are. Each government (state, county, town, city, etc.) does it a bit differently. Once you figure out who does the statistics for your area, it is usually pretty easy to go to their website and find out who the owner of record is for the property. For example, here in Monroe County Florida, the County Property Appraiser maintains those records and a great website to go get information on a property based on address. It will tell you who owns it, how much they paid, when they bought it, and how much the current tax assessment is. Good luck in your search... ... more

Attached is the website for the usda rural housing loans directly from USDA.

I have worked with many clients who have chosen these loans.
They are a great loan for clients who qualify because they require no money down.
There are income limits and the areas that qualify for the loans are limited.
If you have any questions, I would be happy to assist you.

Realistically, the average short sale sells in the 3 - 6 month time frame. There are outliers and I've seen some taking a year or more...but 3 - 6 months is a good starting point.

Hopefully when you were denied the lender gave you some suggestions on bringing up your score. It could have improved in 2 months time and I would suggest you talk with a lender and ask some questions about your personal financial portfolio. Shannon Collier with SWBC is well adversed in VA loans. Her number is 210-342-5155. You can always talk to several and see which lender you think will take your interests to heart. ... more
