Hello Mike,

The "K" a the end of the MLS# represents that the listing is currently Contingent or under contract. Is it a short sale? If you provide the MLS# I would be glad to check into it for you. Have a great weekend!

Fredrick, The county offices have lists as long as the state for taxes certificates for unpaid taxes and even liens. Also city's like Palm Bay that make it a habit of fining people up to more than the homes are worth in there misguided wisdom. Thet fine for mold on the side of the house, if the soffits are not repaired and even if you have a rusty shed that can be seen from the road. They don't even care of the man that owns the house is dying, in a home, or has been dead for 3 or more years. They just keep fining and making better excuses for them.

If you go to the Brevard County website you will be able to find tax certificates and so on available., to purchase. Now as for title information you also can fine this information from the County by gooing tot he Clerk of the Courts and Taxing site. We use the County Porperty Appraisers site to see the owners and addresses currently on file. But they may not be up to date either. Good Luck. If you need additional help give me a shout.

Charlene Blevins answered:
Kay, that's a very good question, and there's no easy answer. A modern tiled walk-in will surely play better than the old standard to a large population of buyers. However, there are still some buyers who want/demand a tub. I'd have to look at the whole-house issue, and buyer pool. Is it a one-level home that would pull retirees to your home, or is your market/home better suited for younger buyers? (Retirees will want the walk-in shower large enough to put a seat in for later in their life). Know that if you take away the tub, you'll be excluding from your buyer pool those who want a master bath tub. ... more

Coni Otto answered:
Renting it out is a good idea because you will still have the home as an investment. Call a local realtor and find out what the houses are being rented for. If your in a military area then you should have no problems finding renters. Hopefully the rent will support your mortgage or you may have to pay part of the mortgage yourself.

Where are you relocating to? If it is DC, MD, or VA please keep me in mind...

Hope this helps... Coni Otto

Bill Eckler answered:

Unfortunately, banks do not deal with individual buyers for property they have acquired. They will place it in the hands of a real estate professional for disposal.

Our recommendation is to be in touch with a local agent and request information of the property as soon as it it posted on the MLS.

Good luck

Hi Dave and Happy New Year 2009! The only way I know is to go on to the Brevard County Clerk of Courts to the public records. You can search by document type--then by name. I put the link in the web reference, but I'll put it here also: http;// Hope that's what you are looking for.

Connie Trincali answered:
Hi Steve,

There currently aren't any bank-owned homes on the market, but there was a short sale that was recently withdrawn. Is this the house you're thinking of:

If it is, it looks like it will be back on the market as a foreclosure in the relatively near future. If you would like more information about it, or other bank owned (foreclosure) properties in that area, I would be glad to email you a list of those that are currently available. I can also email you as others, such as this one, become available. From the pictures, it certainly looks like an amazing house! You can reach me at or 321-514-9862. I hope this information is helpful!

MORE THAN likely in the lease agreement with landlord a guest can only stay for X amount of days, Perhaps your friend can contact property owner state he allowed a friend to stay per the lease agreement NOW will vacate the property. The landlord can enforce the lease potential evict the friend who has over stayed their welcome. HOWEVER it depends on the relationship between person who signed the lease and property owner hopefully it is positive the landlord could evict both parties.

Scott Godzyk answered:
What happens with the shortage should have been negotiated with your short sale. basically three things can happen, they will assess if you have the ability to pay it back or own any other property they can attach, they can write it off if they think they cant collect ot and you will receive a 1099 for the deficiency amount or they forgive the debt and it does not affect your tax situation. You should ask teh negotiater as well as your accountact. Congratulations on getting a short sale approved, especially with two lenders. It is near unheard of lately. good luck with working things out. ... more

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:

Outbid is not always a function of price, it could be due to better financing terms or a stronger looking offer.
No real way to find out until the property closes and then you can find out what it sold for, when it becomes public document.

Bernie GREAT question and welcome to Trulia

I recommend not purchase any of these foreclosures listings most have out of date info. or properties unknown if they are truly a foreclosures. Since foreclosures, short sale, preforeclosures as HUGE BUZ words across the country many are taking advantage of potential buyers

If you work positively with a real estate agent I am assured solutions to all of your questions could be resolved.

Client Testimoials

Mark is a genuine friend! He remembered our anniversary and invites Dave to go surfing and play poker! He helped us narrow down our selection based on exactly what we were looking for and wasn't pushing us to a specific house or area. He worked really well with the other Realtor and we were both very impressed at how friendly he was with everyone we came in contact with during the whole process! We got our dream house and we have Mark to thank for that! We will absolutely go to Mark for any other real estate needs that we have! We absolutely recommend him to any family and friends that need to buy or sell!
-Robin and David, Viera, Florida, USA. May 2008

Hei, hei og takk for sist! Da vil vi få lov å takke for alt du har gjort for oss Mark. Du har sannelig brukt mye av din tid på oss, noe vi setter stor pris på. Nå gleder vi oss bare til å komme tilbake til Florida og ta i bruk vår nye leilighet. Det var veldig betryggende for oss å kunne ha en kontakt som bor i nærheten og som kjenner til systemet i USA når det gjelder investering i bolig etc. Vi satte også stor pris på at du tok oss med og viste oss parker og nærmiljøet slik at vi lettere kan se hva vi går til. Håper vi også kan få ta kontakt med deg når vi kommer neste gang. Ønsker deg en god tur til Norge og riktig god sommer!!
-Grethe og Bernt, Stavanger, Norway. Mai 2008

Etter mye surfing på internett og flere kontakter med andre eiendomsmeglere, fikk vi kontakt med Mark og her fikk vi en stor positiv overraskelse. Mark engasjerte med engang og fulgte oss opp hele veien. Han var oppriktig interessert i oss og vår behov. Etter mange e-mail, telefoner, med hurtige svar på alle våre spørsmål, fikk oss til Floridas Space Coast og ble bare overbevist om at her skulle vi kjøpe. Etter 2 dager på visning fant vi vårt drømmehus, takket være Mark. Han hørte hele tiden på oss, jobbede med oss som vi var de eneste i denne verden der skulle kjøpe bolig. Etter vi fant vårt hus, stod han der stadig med utstrakt hånd og hjalp oss gjennom alt det praktiske. For en person du er Mark, pålidelig, engasjerende, en fantastisk megler, som alle vil få stor glede av. Vi kan på det varmeste anbefale Mark til alle de som ønsker seg bolig på Floridas Space Coast og andre steder i Florida. Takk Mark !

Mark, you truly are the Somerset Oceanfront Specialist. I really appreciate the way you have worked with me as an owner of two units. I know listing with you is the right choice as you are well connected both in the local community and to the international buyers. Each time I talk to you, it seems you have my best interest in mind. Thank you!” S. Veal, MD 03/22/08

I met Mark Palace at the Curves Vibrant Womens Conference and decided to have Palace Properties help me find a place to rent or buy. He had a place within an hour and I could see it that evening after work. Mark works hard for his clients and always kept in contact with me by e-mails and phone calls when I needed to talk to him. Never had to wait long for a call back. He is very professional, courteous and respectful. There are some realtors out there that should take lessons from Mark Palace, Palace Properties.

Yes you can get pre-approved. Pre-approval is typically free with most Banks and Lenders and in the current mortgage environment you should have your pre-approval updated every 30 until you find your new home just to ensure that underwritting guidelines havn't change that may effect your final loan approval. ... more

OK Larry, now we have something to go on. Moving away from the beach brings much more into your range. There are 3 or so condo developments that are suited for your needs. The Lakes at Viera East has the most to choose from. About 20 units available built in 2002 & 3. A good place to make an offer. Monthly fees of about $220. This community has a pool and is maintenance free. Another good choice would be Three Fountains. Built in 2005, they are close proximity to the Avenue (popular shoping center), have a community pool, very nice grounds, clubhouse and fitness center. Third is the Greens ay Viera East. Built in 1998, water and golf views available, maintenance fees run $150-$200 per month. I can send you specific listings if you send me directly your email address.
