Dear Bev:

With stated income, you will need an excellent credit score and usually at least 50% equity or down payment. These loans are pretty rare these days but a few lenders are still willing to do. I have a lender that I work with that knows the ins and outs of the business like the back of his hand. He would be the best guy to specifically answer this question, his information is below:

If you're contemplating buying the property, your best bet would be to hire a licensed building inspector. He or she will be best suited to tell you about the structural soundness.

As far as the applications and records, check with the village or city clerk about obtaining public records pertinent to the building. ... more

1) No, unless it's a tremendous value.

2) Yes. Absolutely.

What you've got is a problem that's likely to continue regardless of your efforts. So, that house and its problems are going to stay the way they are for the foreseeable future. It won't change.

That means it'll detract from your please living in the home you're considering buying. It also means that, when you decide to sell, there's a chance that eyesore will still be there.

So the question is: Can you live next to the eyesore? And are you prepared some day to sell, with the eyesore still there?

In less extreme cases, I've known investors who've approached homeowners and offered to have their yards cleaned up for free. In some cases, I've known investors to do that for 4-5 surrounding homes (urban rowhouses). I don't know whether you'd be willing to do that, or what the cost would be, or whether the eyesore owner would be open to that, and whether and problem would recur even if it were cleaned up. Still, that's a possibility.

My gut reaction would be to advise you to keep looking. But certainly consider the possibilities I mentioned above.

Hope that helps.

Deborah Madey answered:
I am guessing that you are a seller, and not a Realtor. If your property is currently listed with a Realtor, you can discuss uploading the listing to Trulia with them. If you are listed in a local MLS, it is not automatic. Speak w/ your Realtor and review the terms of your marketing agreement with them. There are many alternative sites that a Realtor can market properties, and, yes, Trulia is one of them.

If your Realtor currently does not submit listings to Trulia, they can review their options for such at
