It is pretty simple. On the top right of any Trulia page you can see your name when you're logged in. there is a drop-down arrow right next to your name. Point to it and there will be a drop-down menu - Click on My Profile - On the right hand side under the green Trulia banner/ header click on "Edit my profile" - Your profile page will open up with the "Personal Information" field open, but right above that there is the Email and Password category, which is not opened automatically, so you might have overlooked it. To the right of the category header there's a " + " sign (almost transparent), click on the " + " sign and "Email and Password" field will open up.

Here you can change your email address and/ or your password - Click on Save.

Generally speaking, a lease to own or purchase contract will require a down payment with the contract. Make sure you read or have a legal representative review the contract with you. Each contract can be different, some give you so many months before you go to a lender and complete the sale. Also, check out the "termination" clause, if you chose not to complete the contract, do you lose your down payment?

If you have a decent credit score and are struggling with the down, you might check out an FHA backed loan - the down on those loans are 3.5% of purchase, however you will have to pay for mortgage insurance with that level of down payment.

Conniefors...really only you can answer this question. I can tell you this, any short sale requires you, the seller to demonstrate hardship.....when you're able to make your monthly payments, kinda hard to show a 'hardship'. As you are have moved and now have a new job, I would focus on establishing my new residence. No one can tell you how soon you can expect an offer on the old property, or what the selling price actually will be.

Hope this helps.

Who is working for whom?

If you want to make changes to a contract form, even it it's against your agent's advice, then he / she should follow your instructions. Did he / she say why you should not make any changes? ... more

You are trying to save money by not calling a Realtor,
and its not working out very well for you.

Hi Jason,
I am not aware of any properties, with a land contract option, that are available in Hutchinson. However, there are over 275 houses currently for sale in the area!
If you are not working with an agent, my wife and I would be happy to visit with you and your fiance and see if we can help you find the right home! Also, we could suggest a lender who would be able to give you some direction with financing options.
If you have any questions, or need any other information, our contact information is listed on our website.

Have you tried contacting the county? What about other neighbors also making a fuss about it to get someone to do something about it? You can always go the hazardous route where their property is unsafe possibly forcing the city to take action. This might just end up with them putting a fence up around the yard, but it is progress. Maybe contact whomever is in charge of your Ward, usually they take action in order to get voters in the area in their corner. ... more

No - either pending closing or closed. Never hurts to call the listing realtor and let them know you're interested just in case the sale falls through.

Scott Godzyk answered:
First of all your realtor is dead wrong. you cant catch fish without bait so if you have no ads you will have no buyers. you need to insist he advertises or ask to be released and find a broker that is willing to do the job. You should be advertising weekly fri, sat and sundays and in any major papaers rea estate section. also the monthly color bookls such as the real estate book or homes and land work well, the other ones you can do without. you may also want to check your price. have your broker or a new broker do a current brokers price oppinion to see if your price is right. usually the reason for no buyers is no ads or a high price. make sure you are not facing both. to go it alone you will alienate all the brokers in your area who wont be bringing their customners by, find a broker that is willing to WORK for you, not just take a listing. good luck with your sale ... more
