Hassan, since the zip codes stretch far it's hard to pin-point exact locations just by zip codes but depending on what style property you are looking for, most ocean access homes are located east of Interstate 95 and more country club locations and gated type communites would be located west of 95 which would be more dry-lot properties or lakefront. ... more

Those days are over! He or she CANNOT get a Flat Fee from you AND money from the lender too, not even 1 cent!!

This is an absurd rule from this Nasty Dodd Frank Reform Act that has eliminated options for consumers and causing borrowers to have to come out of pocket with money they prefer not to come to closing with.

Its also causing many deals to not close!

Hi Marcela!

This particular property is under contract and no longer available. It is also an unapproved short sale so, depending on the situation, the price could change and/or it may not be approved by the lender or it could take months and months to get an answer from the bank. However, this doesn't mean that all short sales (or even this one) fall into this situation, it's just something to be very aware of when looking at short sales.

To answer your question, there are no rental restrictions in Woodgate and, in fact, there is a very nice 3/2 waterfront unit with new kitchen, floors, etc. currently available for rent in there listed at $1,750. This will give you an idea of the rent you can anticipate.

Many condo/townhouse communities in the area do have rental restrictions, so it is important to avoid these.

I strongly recommend that you work with an experienced local Realtor who knows the market well. I'd be happy to help you and we'd also be able to help you secure a good tenant once you have your property. Let me know if I can help.

Best of luck and best regards,

you may want to talk with an attorney. At first glance, my answer is of course, the contract is expired, but then reading about the interview with the association... it gets sticky. Because your contract most likely says that you will have one. ... more

35% down MIN. and you CANNOT be picky about rate or costs if you want to purchase in such a situation.

However, after you re-establish credit, you can look at doing a refi after approx. 18 mo.

Plantation Florida was mainly built in the 1970's and 1980's. Hawks Landing is one of the new home communities although the homes are from the $600,000's to the millions. Artesia is a newer town home/ condo community close to Plantation where prices are in the high $200,000's to the $300,000.00's. You may need to select a few cities to meet your request.

You are able to find a condo/townhome although the year will more than likely be older than 6 to 7 years old.

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Is there a certain benefit that you believe would be achieved by not using a REALTOR with an FHA loan? The type of financing you choose is completely separate from using a REALTOR to represent, negotiate and advise you. ... more

Ann Ryan answered:

Have you attempted a short sale? Florida is a recourse state, so the banks can come after you for the outstanding debt. Hopefully, you've already consulted a financial counselor and lawyer about this, if not, call one TODAY.

(I work with one of the most experienced short sale negotiators)

The answers to 1-3 will depend on information that isn't clear from the provided information. Get a real estate agent to guide you when making an offer.

Danielle Sharp answered:
REALTORs do not finance property, we sell them unless they also happen to be investors. If you need financing you may be able to find an investor willing to do so; an agent will be a good resource for this also since they may have a pool of investors looking to do these types of things.

Have you spoken with a lender about your ability to finance or what steps you would need to take to be mortgage ready?
