You need to tread EXTREMELY carefully with this home, as these types of violations can cost tens of thousands of dollars. The City of Miami will not give you the total amount due on the fine until the violations are cured. Curing means that the residence is brought to code, either by removing the violation or making it legal. Either option can be very expensive and there is NO guarantee that the City will reduce or eliminate the fine. Your first step is to meet with whichever departments in the city have registered violations - there are probably multiple departments involved. You need to get them to tell you what needs to be done to clear the violations, but you MUST understand that nothing they tell you is cast in stone. The final determination of what you have to do to clear the violations lies in the hands of the inspectors who issued the tickets or who actually inspect the job. BE CAREFUL!!! ... more

Steven Epstein, P.A. answered:
Usually 4 years or more, you need to re-establish your credit, the FCL will remain on your credit records for at least 7 yrs. Discuss this with a reputable lender and there are always private lenders that may take a higher risk on you for a higher rate & large downpayment. Of course you can always buy a home cash at anytime you can. This question is, with all the other options available to distressed sellers why would you leave it go to foreclosure? ... more

Easiest thing to do is to get pre-approved with a local lender. All In One Mortgage Lenders are great. They answer their calls 24/7 and you'll get to talk to a loan officer. One of the loan officers number is 305 979 9329. They don't charge points at all!!!! ... more

Trevor Curran answered:
Good morning verolegal and THANK YOU for your service to our Nation!

Homes do not need to be VA Approved; only Condominiums. So, for your search for a Single Family Home you only need to find a great local Realtor who is experienced working with and negotiating on behalf of Veterans and SHOP 'til You DROP!

I say "experienced" because many home Sellers are reluctant to consider Veteran Offers to Purchase with VA financing due to unreasonable and false notions of the loan process. There's a notion that VA financing is a nightmare and too many Realtors and Sellers believe this myth. So you definitely want to work with someone who can properly communicate with other Realtors and Homeowners how the process works and dispel any myths about the process, too.

Good luck!

Please be sure to alert the administrators here at Trulia. They will pull down the post. Also, if you have access to the information, very often these properties are listed for sale, the scam artists get the information from the local mls or, so if you can please alert the listing agent as well. ... more

James Deskins answered:
Nope, I've never heard of anything like that. The only thing I can think of is that your Realtor may be known to engage in unethical behavior and the bank wants to steer clear. (Not saying that it's true, just a thought). Otherwise, there is no reason for the Realtor to have any bearing on your situation. ... more

The Wynwood are is a great locataion in a central part of Miami, but an urban location. I use this website as a reference to know exact crime statistics for each area, which you may find helpful.

You will find that Wynwood has some walking areas with restaurants, shops and galleries. If this will be a home for you, it does depend on what type of activities you are looking for to be right outside your door.

I would be glad to assist you with your search and options available in the Miami area. Feel free to contact me directly.
