You should contact a real estate professional here on Trulia to go over what you're looking for and the inventory available that would meet your criteria. You should also contact the local offices of community development to see if they have any assistance. Alot will depend upon how much your voucher is for, what utilities you require etc. There aren't all that many larger buildings that have 3 bedrooms and an elevator. This is why working with a professional is important. ... more

Doesn't look like anything in particular is going on with it. I would be happy to contact the seller on your behalf. Property was purchased in 2004 for $379,900.

If she owns the house, then she should have received notice. As a renter, you should also be able to look in the Registry of Deeds if a notice of Foreclosure has been put on the house. The Registry of Deeds is public record. I believe Revere is in Suffolk County you may even be ablt to simply ook on line.

Best of luck.

I recommend that you consult with a real estate attorney as soon as possible. You may be able to sue for damages or sue for performance of the sales contract if you did not break the terms of the agreement. ... more

Start looking for another house. Short sales can take up to 6+ months and at that time you could find out the deal is not going to happen. Do not put all your eggs in the short sale basket. You could risk missing out on other better opportunities.

Good luck!

Ask your agent to submit your offer directly through the asset manager who handles that REO, and ask your agent to add an exclusive dealing clause to all of your offers. You also need to start submitting multiple offers, because it's really a numbers game. Also keep in mind that most of your competition will flock after all of the "great" stuff as soon as it hits the market.

Instead of trying to compete with the investors to purchase REOs directly from the bank, you could purchase one of the rehabbed ones from one of the "We buy houses" folks (who are also investors) for a good price with less competition.

Your association had better get a master policy in effect quickly. There are severe liability issues here. Was there a policy in place that lapsed? Your by-laws should make it mandatory for your association to have this policy. It should be a line item in your annual project as a projected expense. As an association member, you can make a written requested to your board to review association financials.

Hope this helps.
