Hi, I'm not a Realtor and I'm not sure how soon you'll be able to get an answer for your question here...but thought I could offer you some suggestions.

You could post what you're looking for on Craigslist under "Housing" then "housing wanted" where property managers/landlords look to find tenants like yourself?

Also check out www.rentalhouses.com and enter the zipcode 46809 for rentals in that area and other areas close by...

Good luck!

I have stared at your question for a long time, and I cannot figure it out.
The only part that I CAN answer, is;
No you cannot list your house on Trulia, your Realtor has to do that.


Good luck and may God bless

Have your agent contact me. I am a HUD listing agent. I can see what I can find out for them.
You cannot renegotiate the price without canceling your existing contract.
More than likely if they found a lien that was missed during the foreclosure they will have to do a strict foreclosure to clear the title. It can take as little as 3 months but I have see up to 2 years!

Ron Thomas answered:
LISTING PRICE
Understand that the LISTING PRICE has one primary objective, to attract attention: It is not intended to be set in stone, and in many cases it is not even a good guideline toward the SELLING PRICE.

Some Sellers believe that by setting the LISTING PRICE high, they can always come down, and people will make an offer anyway: WRONG! Buyers will just bypass the property and look at houses that are within their price range. And six months from now, the Seller will slowly start lowering the PRICE, (this is called “chasing the curve”) and Buyers will be asking the question; “What’s wrong with that house?” and “Why has it been on the Market so long?”

Other Sellers set the LISTING PRICE low, to attract multiple offers. (The correct strategy.) We are asked; “Aren’t you obligated to sell at this price if someone offers it?” The answer is probably not; for that to happen, you would first have to have only one offer, and secondly, the offer would have be exactly the same, down to the smallest detail, (please discuss this with your Realtor).
Another thought; Buyer will search for potential properties by groups; for example, $400,000 to $450,000, and $250,000 to $300,000. If your house is priced at $460,000 or $310,000, the Buyers will never see it. (something else to discuss with your Agent.)

Different Banks have different philosophies about pricing their properties: You cannot draw any conclusions without a good analysis.

Have your Realtor do a CMA, (Comparative Market Analysis) to help you determine your Offering Price. It is the surest way to determine the Market Value of the property.

Good luck and may God bless

You really should consider working with an agent of your own; and before purchasing any property, a home inspection conducted by a licensed professional is highly recommended. Since there was no executed contract, signed by all parties, the seller is free to do as he/she pleases....again, work with an agent... ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
I don't know the local laws, however, I know this can be an issue for the buyer. They will not be able to get an FHA backed mortgage unless they go for an FHA 203K mortgage. You may want to see if you can find a realtor who is an FHA 203K specialist. Look for someone at www.rebuildusa.com. The problem is, otherwise, you will be limited to people who are eligible for either a conventional mortgage or paying cash. It eliminates a huge pool of buyers. If local ordinances and so on permit, you may still be able to sell the home, but expect buyers to want a discount. ... more

Vicki Marsh answered:
You may be able to obtain a mortgage, depending on several factors...
1) If your bankruptcy has been discharged
2) Your credit score is high enough
3) You do not have any additional judgements/charge offs/etc.

You should contact a local lender, and let them run your credit through the 3 credit reporting agencies to give you the green light on purchasing and to give you the price point you are able to purchase.

Good luck!
