The best way to know what fees are associated with a loan is to apply for a loan.

A mortgage lender or broker is required by the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) to provide the applicant within three business with a good faith estimate, referred to as a GFE. The estimate must include an itemized list of fees and costs associated with the loan. ... more

It is going to be next to impossible. I would suggest at least doubling your budget if you want to in a Single Family Home in the gables, and plan on possibly having an extra pet deposit especially with a larger dog. ... more

Ann Ryan answered:
Kevin, clearly something went very wrong here. You probably should consult a lawyer, but that won't put a roof over your head.

Start by explaining to your landlord that your contract fell through, and see if he is willing to extend your rental. Then it's clearly time to start looking for a new place to purchase and/or rent.

Sorry for your troubles, and I'd love to hear what happens after you talk to that lawyer.

Hello Julio,

Check the violation notice.

Usually the city will tell you a date.

You can sometimes look it up once you go on the city website.

Thank you,

It all depends on your plans and goals. If you need to sell your own home first, you should plan to move in the spring when you have a better chance at selling your home.
Families with kids are most likely to move in the summer months, as to not disrupt the children’s school year.
If you could choose any time of the year to move, I'd suggest spring or late fall - times when it'll be easier to find and hire movers and when rental companies are not charging the highest rates.

Tim Moore answered:
Most Realtors won't deal with auctions because we get paid on commission and there is no owner paying a commission on a foreclosure auction. If you want to learn auctions then you will need to pay someone to teach you. You can make many mistakes doing what you are looking to do, it's not as easy as seen on those TV shows !!!!!!!!! You need to know what you are doing, what you are buying and have looked at the title and checked for liens or you will be buying more than you think. ... more

Ann Ryan answered:
You probably should be looking at the executive stay places. Here in Doral there's the Blue and Eurosuites. Eurosuites will be less expensive. However, you should find something that will be close to where you're being trained.

And remember, anything month to month/short term will be much more expensive than a long-term rental. Make sure you run the numbers of what 4 months of rent will cost vs. 6. Even if you're not planning on staying 6 months, it may make more sense to sign a contract for that long. Contracts 6 months or less are subject to sales tax. Contracts of over 6 months are not.

Ron Thomas answered:
Absolutely!
Especially the 5,000,000 who already lost their homes:
at $100,000 each, that would be approximate $500,000,000 (that's 500 BILLION dollars!)

Yanoska Diaz answered:
The advantage of a Trustee Auction is that the Buyer may obtain a lower price for any given asset than if that asset had the proper exposure to the Multiple Listing Service.

On the other hand, buying a Bank Owned property that sells on the MLS is a lot less risky than buying at auction. For example:

Condo and/or Home Owners Association fees, taxes and other potential issues are usually resolved/paid by the Seller prior to closing.

Buyer has a better opportunity to research or be aware through Unincorporated Miami Dade and other municipalities Certificates of Use/Occupancy about code violations and fines.

Seller will typically deliver a vacant property and Buyer will not have to deal with a lengthy and painful eviction process.

Ann Ryan answered:
1) Begin with doing your due dilligence:
A) what is the condition of the home?
B) Are there any outstanding liens?

2) Review the comparables and determine a fair price for the home. Remember, you need to buy a foreclosure at a significant discount to justify the additional risks.

3) Identify and secure your funding

4) Put in an offer.
