Yes. I read of a case in Florida where the Bank reduced the principal balance on a loan modification. I know this isn't common but it's certainly possible.

Rent to own properties may not be listed as such, therefore consider working with an agent of your own. Keep in mind that rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, therefore do inform yourself well beforehand... ... more

Randy Schulenburg answered:

First of all, congratulations on owning a home that is free and clear of any mortgage debt. You represent a statistically small percentage of home owners Nationwide who own their home outright.

Secondly, you are responsible for the real estate taxes on your home up and until ownership changes hands on the day of your closing. Since in Illinois real estate taxes are paid in the arrears, you'll pay the remainder of your 2011 tax bill and most likely a proration of the 2012 tax bill that is not yet out but still your responsibility. A typical proration is 105% of the previous years tax bill. However, this is a negotiable aspect of the contract.

Call or text me at 224-805-2616 if you have further questions or need a full time real estate broker to help you with your sale and purchase of a new home.

If you give an address or a link to the property we may be able to help you. You can also contact the McHenry County Assessor's office for help. A Senior Exemption provides for a small discount on your real estate taxes. However, some qualify for a Senior Freeze depending on income.

I hope that helps!

My NC Homes Team answered:

There's a lot of missing information that makes your question difficult to answer. I would suggest that many online real estate sites are rife with misinformation, typos, totally outdated information etc. For all we know it was listed for $75,000 many years ago. It could also be that it was listed for $175,000 and's info was incorrect.

The real question is are you happy with your home and the price you paid for it, if so that's all that matters. I'm sure you got an appraisal done and it must have appraised at or above what you paid or you would not have been able to get a mortgage.

I hope you enjoy your new home and would encourage you not to let some unverified data on a website that doesn little more than scrape data from other sites to bother you.

Hi Karen,

Where did you see that it sold for $292,000? The home is currently under contract/pending - however the list price was $62,000. While we don't know as of yet what it will ultimately sell for - judging my the list price it's going to most likely be considerably less than 292K. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me directly via my website or at 630-747-3426. Hope that helps! ... more

Tina Lam answered:
Any reason you must have a house that's not on the market? If it's an REO, you'll get a clean title. If you try to buy a property in some stage of foreclosure, you';ll run the risk assuming additional liens. Since the property is not on the market, you can only try contacting the owner, since there would be no agent handling the sale. ... more
