Hey Rey, If you will contact me I will speak to a couple of lenders I know who have a national presence for their peer counter parts that can handle USDA and less than the traditional in loans, I am in NC but certainly willing to help if you do not find someone local who has solved this for you.

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!

Jenn, There are lots of ways to go about renting a home in the area. the best is to go with a realtor who is familiar with the area and has access to MLS. the one thing to note is that homes for rent move FAST in that area so you have to be ready to sign and deliver once you start your search! I would be more than happy to help with your needs as I am very familiar with the area!

Chapter 7 only happens when someone gets over their head in debt. The reasons can vary from health issue, loss of job, failure of a business or divorce, but the one landlords fear is someone who just isn't responsible. Yes, you have no debts, but your previous creditors didn't get paid. It may not be your fault, but no one wants to line up to be the next one who doesn't get paid.
If you want to improve your chances, write a letter explaining what happened and that you have learned from your mistakes. If you truly have, you can recover and eventually get credit again, if not you may end up in BK again in 10 years.

footnote...I'm looking at 3br, 2.5bath, +2000sf homes for 2 adults/2kids. On the high end of my home search I'm finding +5yrs houses w/no energy saving features asking $210-250K. On the low end, 2011-2012 new construction from $190-210K with many energy efficiency features. Why pay to install in old homes when I get more & for less, in newer homes? ... more

Brenda Mullen answered:
Hi Thomas,

Why do you think there is such a sharp decline in the median home prices in Cibolo? In some areas there has possibly been a slight drop but nothing that would scream sharp decline to me. Home prices have been pretty steady for the most part in Cibolo and surrounding areas for the past few months with some neighborhoods doing better than others which is the norm.

Anyway, since it looks as though you are a home buyer, whenever you decide on the home you want to buy, have your Realtor® do a comparative market analysis of the area so that you will have a general idea of how to place your offer.

Good luck and if I can help you at all, please feel free to give me a call or send an e-mail.

Doc & Ellen Stephens answered:
Before you ruin your Credit reputation and get yourself into a mess, you should confer with a REALTOR® who is well-versed in Loan Modifications and Short Sales. Letting it go could mean you will not be able to buy another home for 5 years or more.

Most banks will negotiate with you. They DON'T want your house - they have plenty already! If your financial condition is not currently sustainable, most of the time they will either modify the terms of your loan or allow you to sell it for less than the amount owed on the home. That's called a Short Sale. It has top be done proactively and properly to avoid any continuing liability after the deal closes.

Cibolo is a hot-area for home sales right now due to the large influx of new folks at Ft. Sam Houston. If you would like to talk about your individual situation, I would be happy to visit with you without obligation.

Frank Bailey answered:
Hello Tony,

It's common for the short sale to pop up on the foreclosure list as most of the times the foreclosure resources and the short sale resources are in separate areas. The listing agent should be made aware and then they will in turn contact the bank to get it extended out. I hope this helps and good luck. ... more

I'd say you'd have a VERY good chance. You'll get thrown in the shuffle of sorts (short sales are just like that), but nobody would complain at a full price offer.

Guy Gimenez answered:
You wouldn't buy a car without determining the value and you won't want to buy a house without doing the same. Consider the following:

1. What the house previously sold for should have no bearing in what you offer. That is the banks problem, not yours.

2. You should seek information on the actual market value. Interview some buyer agents since it won't cost you anything and you may even be able to get a rebate from the buyer agent's commission. Look for agents who hold at least a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. You should seek a buyer agent who has done lots of short sales, and make them prove it with hard data.

3. Remember this. If you want to buy the home more than the bank wants to sell, you will likely pay more than you have to. If you want the home regardless, offer full price, but only after you're sure the asking price is a good value.

4. Short sales are different animals. They're time consuming, convoluted and often stressful for all parties...mainly due to communication between the bank / agent. If you're looking to move quickly, a short sale is not the route to take. It is not uncommon to take months after your offer is submitted to find out that your offer was not accepted and another offer was. Fair? No. But it is reality in many situations.

A competent buyer's agent can be a great resource for you if you're able to find the right one.

Chris Mabry SRS,e-PRO answered:
Hello Meg,
I looked at the pictures of your home and it looks clean and well staged. I can't really offer any other feedback on how your home "shows." I would say that pricing is the single most important thing to consider when selling a home in this market. Do you feel as though your home is priced competitively? Speak to your listing agent about your concerns. Are you having regular showings? Have you made any price reductions? What feedback is being offered by buyers looking at your home? I understand your frustration. Try to stick in there and stay positive. The slow market is hard on a lot of people. Take a close look at your price and marketing strategy and see if there are some areas that need more consideration. Good luck! ... more
