Your only way of getting the condo refied is to go through Fannie Mae.
They will help with a reduction. That is if you are dilligent and keep
on calling and getting the answer you are looking for. On the other
hand you can short sell the property. By the way the market is
picking up so it might be worth while hanging on a little longer.
Not right away but down the road. Just FYI.

Thank you,

Same rights as in a non-short sale. Are you staying as the tenant with the new owner? The security deposit will transfer to the owner along with the lease, if there is one. Since this sale is unsettling, have you thought about possibly buying a home? Most renters don't realize that the same rent payment applied to a mortgage can get them a pretty nice home. Let me know if you need some more guidance. ... more

I'm not in Vegas where you are, but no matter, only buy if you need a house, you want a house (two different things) and you can buy a house- that is, you have good credit and can qualify for one of the better loan programs; and make sure you stay close (+ or - 5%) to 25% of your net income for housing- principal, interest, taxes, insurance, and utilities. Other than that, do what you want to do, like a lot of people. No one can predict the future. But if you have faith that the lights will come on when you flip the switch, we can all make it, probably. Fear is a destructive thing. Have some faith.
Most forceclosed homes are on the market. Check a local realtor for finding out details on a specific address. Or, on the web, put the address in and see what comes up. Do it with and with

Any financing you obtain is going to be based solely on your personal income. The banks will not use the expected income because although it is very likely to be rented out in this market, it is still not a guarantee. ... more

It would be my pleasure to search the available home listing in Sun City Aliante for you! There are Laurel models available but none that are have casitas. They range from 2104 sqare feet to 1157 square feet. Would you be interested in a home at SCA without a casita? Please contact me via email to discuss this further!

Thank you very much,
Joseph Ruggeroli

I believe it's a two year waiting period, but it would be nice to have that confirmed by a mortgage professional.

Anyone who answers this with a number is conspiring with you to possibly commit fraud. If you can afford your home and you haven't had a financial setback due to loss of a job or health issues you should keep on paying. Walking away will be extremely damaging to your credit and depending on the loan(s) involved may not free you up from your obligations completely.
If you really want to explore your options meet with an attorney who handles Real Estate & distressed sales. You may also want to explore doing a short sale or a loan modification. These are less damaging and may be options for you.

John Brassner answered:
That's a tough list of requirements for that price. You are going to have to sacrifice on a few of your criteria. Having a pool combined with "newer" as a requirement in that price range will be difficult. Take a look at
which might help you understand the market now; not much available and huge demand.

I wish I could tell you that we have exactly what you are looking for but we don't; I tell it like it is. If you want an older home and can settle on a two-car garage we can get you close.

Yes, you can test your water. Just send a sample into a local lab. A home inspector could give you the name of a reputable lab. Good luck.

Jennifer Blanchard answered:
This is very common; unfortunately it can be hard to get around. Are showings coordinated through them? Maybe they would feel better if they could field the calls and make the appointments. I don't think that the clause you cite applies to real estate showings - they may be concerned that they will have to find another home if the property sells - are a concern, right?

Good Luck!

Dan Tabit answered:
The seller's lien holder can request as a condition of the approval that if the home isn't closed by a certain date, they want $X.00 per day to extend. This is usually an amount comparable to the daily carrying costs if the loan had closed by this date or a little higher.
You can accept, reject or counter offer. It's up to you, your lender and the listing agent or their negotiator. If they didn't allow a reasonable time they should extend without any cost.
Did you wait for the lender's approval to start your loan process? It would have been a good idea to have this well along the way while waiting for final approval.
