So curious if you don't trust the site why are you using it. You need to find a local Realtor who can help you find homes that are currently for sale. I get clients all the time who ask about this or that home they saw on some website and 99% of the time they are not available. A Realtor has access to the most current informtion. ... more

Depends...keep in mind that each short sale is unique; the lenght of time depends on such factors as the lender, the number of liens involved, who is negotiating the sale on behalf of the seller, was all the seller required necessary paperwork submitted to the lender on a timely fashion, etc. ... more

All foreclosures aren't bad deals, but that being said most buyers find better deals elsewhere. Short sales are more viable than they used to be, if they meet certain criteria they have a decent chance of going through. Also bargains can be found in homes which are re-sales where the owner has moved and is paying taxes etc. and is highly motivated to sell the home. Your best bet is to get a buyer's agent, sit down with them and discuss your criteria and let them do the work. If you get the right buyer's agent it won't cost you a dime (they should recieve there whole commision from the seller) and they can find properties for you, negotiate for you and a whole host of other things which should make the process much easier and more rewarding. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Javier Meneses answered:
You should speak to your loan officer. Not sure what program your in and what rate you're locked in at, but rates have not moved so much in these past months. It's very possible that you can keep your existing rate or even get it lowered a bit, without having to submit a new mortgage application and start over. For the most part there is some flexibility depending in your lender.

Good luck!

Jacques Ambron answered:
Generally your attorney will want to choose their own title company. As far as appraiser the bank dictates which appraiser is used, it must be an approved appraiser. Recording fees are per city, and you should check with your attorney about these things to see if there is anything that he can do. ... more

Christopher Lefebvre answered:
Time is of the essence in real estate deals. Both parties should try to move forward as fast as possible by the dates agreed upon. If you have a verbally accepted offer and you are waiting for your written offer to be signed by the seller, they should try to get that back to you as soon as possible. You don't really have an accepted offer until it is in writing by both parties. If they are taking too long to get it back to you after verbally accepting it then something maybe wrong and you should have your agent find out what is going on. However, if you are dealing with a bank owned property it may take a longer amount of time to get the signed offer/contract back from the bank (3 to 4 business day response time is not unusual for banks). ... more

Ralph Windschuh answered:
Keeping the home to allow the tenants to increase your equity is a great idea - especially in this market. Much will depend on your payments on your house, your salary, and what your payments will be on your condo. If you need a reliable, honest mortgage broker, I would be happy to recommend someone. I am also a certified buyer representative so I could work on your behalf when you look for your condo. Good luck!
