Since a mobile home is looked at as private property, as opposed to real estate, you can swap it, sell it, give it away, or trade it much as you would a car.

You have a lot of good options regarding good schools and good neighborhoods. Before I would worry about property tax, it would help to know what price range you are in and whether you want to be near the coast or you want to be inland.

Feel free to call me if you want to discuss.

I believe it's fear, buying a home or an investment especially for the first time. For a buyer it's like trying to ride a bike when you were eight years old, it was scary but once you got the hang of it, nobody could keep up with you, its the same for real estate its that first investment that makes the way for the rest.... ... more

Hello Gvc,

Revert to beneficiary just means that the property went back to the bank. This occurs when nobody bids at the sale or the property did not sell for full value/value set by bank. It is just a matter of time before you receive a notice to leave. There are ways for you to receive money from the bank to help you with your moving expenses and finding a new home. Please feel free to email me and we can setup a meeting to talk about your options’.
Best regards,

Hi Kevin,
I have received some quality buyer leads from this site but very few inquiries about my listings. I'm currently working with 4 different buyers who contacted me by viewing my profile on Trulia.

It's my belief that in order to attract prospects that you need to participate on the site by answering questions or posting blogs to show your knowledge about your market and your community rather than just have your listings viewed.

And yes, you are correct that you need to input your Open house times here as it does not feed from the MLS.

Good luck to you!

Lisa-Marie Silver answered:
The traffic in this area during the week is pretty low, just depends on time of day. It gets a bit heavier at the beginning of the day (ie: dropping kids off for school) and when picking kids up from school. The weekends are a bit heavier, however, this is not an extremely heavy traffic area. It all depends of course on where you buy a home and if you're closer to a major street. What part of Walteria are you looking at? I could give you more specific information knowing that. ... more

To the best of my knowledge there is not a rental office in this Retirement Community. These are Condos that are owned by someone and could be for rent. I checked the Multiple Listing Service and there in fact are some available in the community for rent. If you would like to contact me I would be more than happy to assist you in finding out if any of the available rental units would satisfy your needs. My email is or you can call me toll free at 877-645-4110. ... more

Emily Knell answered:
The asset manager for the bank will be contacting you, they will go over to the house as a preservation measure or send you a letter. They may allow you to rent back from them depending on when they think they want to bring the home back on the market as an REO. You should try to negotiate a good rent price with them as YOU are doing THEM a favor as basically acting as a property manager!

OR They will offer you 'cash for keys', which should be at least 1mo worth of rent, you should try to ask for 1-2mos worth of rent so you can have time to look for another place & then move.

Shoot me an email directly if you want to talk about this some more, I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.

Deborah London answered:
I have met many buyers who prefer their home to not be on a corner because corner homes have traffic on 2 sides. In fact, I have seen many corner homes on a narrow lot so there is a street directly behind them so that those residents then have traffic on 3 sides of their home. The first home I ever owned on a corner and I personally won't buy another one. ... more

Hello Kay~

All of the areas in the South Bay have sales activity. The important selling factor is the price. Homes that are priced at market value, and are in good condition are selling fastest. Homes priced under 700K seem to be selling faster than the ones above that price point.

This is a great move up market if you are thinking of selling your current home and trading up. Please let me know if you'd like some recent sales activity sent to you. I can also give you more detailed information about the current market around us.

Warmest Regards,

In short - no. Under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, you may be able to exclude up to $2 million in debt forgiven from non-payment of the balance of a mortgage balance on your principal residence. The debt forgiveness applies to calendar years 2007 - 2012.

For more information, see the IRS webpage at,,id=179414,00.html.

You may also wish to consult with an attorney to ensure you're protected.

Rates are specific to each person's situation and requires investigation. While you can find rates posted online, you have to know that it is impossible to post rates for every scenario so what you see posted may or may not apply to you. To get an accurate rate quote, contact a licensed loan officer in you state; if you would like one, please contact me. ... more
