Don Tepper answered:
First, don't contact the listing agent.

I understand your frustration; the listing agent SHOULD promptly get back in touch with you, It's impossible to figure out why she hasn't.

However, you definitely don't want to deal with the listing agent. The listing agent represents the seller. The agent has a fiduciary duty to get the best possible deal for the seller. Although not illegal or improper (if fully disclosed), dual agency--the situation in which the same agent represents both the buyer and the seller--often is not the best strategy for a buyer.

So, what do you do? Find your own agent. One who'll represent you exclusively. And since you're considering buying the property as an investment, make sure the agent knows and understand what's involved with investment properties. The calculation, the negotiation, the strategy can be quite different than if you're buying a primary residence.

I'm sure you'll get plenty of responses from Palm Beach agents, waving their arms and saying "contact me, contact me." Screen them. Ask them how many investment properties they own.

Hope that helps.

Hi Mike, if you are talking about Jupiter Timberwalk, they were built in the late 90's early 2000, I'm not a contractor but I don't think that is when we started having issues with that. I understand it to be more 2005 and later. I would always encourage a home inspection from a professional before you purchase anything. They can tell by the inside of the wiring and the a/c system if they suspect a drywall problem and then can do extensive testing from there. I hope this helps, Lori ... more

YES there is a new "Debut" model in Martinique at Abacoa! 3306 Greenway Drive. It's a 4/4 pool home with oversized rooms, a large bonus room above the garage and a 39�39; x 14' covered patio. The home is built with lots of Smart Green features and a family in mind. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The entire home has beautifully detailed high ceilings, crown molding and lots of custom design features. The outdoor summer kitchen adjacent to the oversized covered patio is complemented with granite, Jennair grill and tongue and groove ceiling. The outside shower and travertine pavers make the private tropical pool feel like a resort oasis. ... more

Pick Jupiter. Much better overall area, close to awesome beaches, great schools, FAU College, Scripps research institute, super restaurants, VERY family friendly, and low crime.

Parkland is surrounded by Coral Springs and Deerfield.. Enough said...

When do you want to move?

We have really had a very strong market in Jupiter, especially in the sub $350,000 price ranges where there is a lack of quality inventory at this time. Prices in many neighborhoods and developments in theses market segments have really firmed up and seem to have stabilized. In the higher categories, say $500,000+ we have had some great activity this season but excess inventory still abounds. I keep a close eye on all of the statistics affecting Jupiter and post them regularly on my blog which I invite you to read;

I hope things are well up in Jersey and if you need anything further in regards to the Jupiter market please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

Always at Your Service,

Emelia Sanchez answered:
This is a tough question only because it is a short sale and in fact needs lender approval. Depending on how the listing agent processes short sales and who the lender is it can be that all offers will be uploaded yours along with whatever else they have and the lender will take the best one. You are at an advantage that they are letting you know where your offer needs to be in order to have the better offer, not every listing agent is this forthcoming with that type of information. This makes it sound like they are willing to negotiate not necessarily back out. It is up to you whether you want to move forward and offer more, have your agent check the value and if it is worth it and you can afford it then full steam ahead. If it is not then, next. Realtors main objective is to get the short sale approved and will always submit the one that nets the lender the most money with the best chances of actually closing the transaction. ... more

Rent to own may be a possibility. Consider everything the blog below says.

You will have to work harder to find it, but maybe it could work.

On the other hand, you may find that your credit score is not a problem, it is a symptom that says you are not yet ready to buy a house. It would hurt more to go ahead and lose it than not to be able to buy in the beginning.

Hi Remdawg,

An agent who has access to the Local Multi Listing System including 33477 could easily provide you with this information.
If no local agent is coming back to you with this question, you can search in Trulia "Find a Pro" for an agent working this Zipcode. Here are the results:
You can also check if any of those agents have a website or blog and may be already providing this kind of information.

I hope it helps-

Dan Tabit answered:
Step one; meet with a qualified Loan Officer, either at your bank or through a broker. Tell them you want to get pre-qualified or create a plan so that it can happen soon. A good lender can give you legitimate tips on improving your credit score, which would either get you approved, or improve your rate. I am a lender as well as a Realtor and I have done this for several clients. I don't do FHA, so I can't speak specifically to their guidlines.
Your job time is good; the income is fine, so if you are not approved, it will be due to your score. Some tips for improving your score would be to keep lines open, but keep balances low. You have to use credit to build it. If you don't have any credit cards right now, apply for one at your bank or credit union. Ask for a collateralized card if you are declined. This means your limit would be capped by money you currently have on deposit there. Use the card, but pay it off monthly.
Beware of credit improvement schemes that charge you any money. I am not aware of any legitimate ones and you can do it yourself. The exception to this would be a rapid rescore through a licensed lender. You can do this, it takes some time, but less than you might think, and a little discipline.
I hope this helps.

Not sure where you would see listings for $100.00 other than Quit Claim Deeds for property transfer from owner to Lender in a foreclosure action. Realty Track and may also show sales for $100.00 Again, this generally means the home was reposessed by Foreclosure and the lender paid $100 for the Quit Claim Deed to be transferred. These homes may or may not be fore sale. If they are available to purchase, they would be listed with a Real Estate company. I recommend hiring Real Estate agent who specializes in Foreclosure and Short-Sales.

Short-Sale is the sale of a property for less than what is owed on the note. Lender do not have to agree to a Short-Sale. These can be complex and frustrating transactions, again, consult a Realtor for advise when making an offer on this type of property.

Feel free to call me of you have any questions.
