Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Realty trac "listings" are not listings at all, and I agree - as do many other agents here on trulia - that Realty Trac is misleading.

The homes listed are not necessarily for sale, and may never be for sale.
The numbers listed are based on public information - from legal filings and notices. That's all. Just because a property is listed on their database doesn't mean it is for sale - it only indicates a legal action was taken.

Since no local answers yet--any agent can help you, contact any realty office(s) and inquire or contact any local Trulia contributor(s) directly and ask.

I work with clients with less than perfect credit all the time. Your scores are going to need to increase in order to get you qualified to buy a home but FHA loan programs still offer credit score flexibility and only require a 3.5% down payment. Give me a call or send me an email when you have a minute so we can discuss your loan options. Thank you and have a great weekend. ... more

Kathy Weber answered:

The answer is "yes".

I usually check the MLS first to make sure that the homes I'm sending this information out to is not already listed with another agent. It's just common courtesy.

If your mass mailing to a farm area, just do your best to weed out properties already listed. It's hard to do sometimes if your farm is large. Just do your best to respect other agents.

Best of luck on your marketing!

Eric Funk answered:
In NJ, the following would be the case: the listing agent showed you the house and was therefore the procuring cause of your offer. The agent that didn't show you the house and just submitted the offer is not owed a commission as they are not the cause of you buying the house as they didn't show it to you - even retrospectively, by the sound of it. ... more

Normally they have 30 days to respond but there is questions of what happens if they do not respond. After the 30 days you can simply write a letter giving the owner a 30 day notice that you are moving out because of the problems and their lack of response to repair them within the 30 days notice. Make sure you list the items again with any proof you have. take pictures for your records. After the 30 days you can move out, then you may have to fight for your security deposit bhack. If you are working with legal advice you should ask them if you can do these things in your area, state laws differ from place to place. If you really want to take it a step further you call the city housing inspector for an inspectrion. Smoke detectors should be hard wired but you can always spend $10 and get a battery one for your own well being. good luck working things out ... more

Janine Love answered:
Commercial rates will vary pending on where you purchase (high traffic/low traffic, etc) and what type of building, etc. Residential rental rates as well as price per square foot ranges depending on subdivision, age of home, etc. The best way to purchase a rental home is to try to purchase homes in better school districts and desireable subdivisions and purchasing either a foreclosure or a home at a great price so your rate of return on the home is good. Other considerations are the condition of the home when you purchase it. Will you consider a little work on a home to get it ready for renting or no work in the beginning, just purchase and rent? We have worked for investors for over 15 years, and would be happy to help you in your current venture. ... more

Bryan Sereny, Pa answered:
This number could vary greatly from 5% to 40%. It really depends on the current trends in your market. I would look at the spread between list and closed sale prices to get a sense of how much other people are negotiating off of the list prices. You can see these numbers by contacting a local Realtor and asking to see the past three months of closed sale data in the neighborhood you are interested in. ... more
