Based on my experience with condos (and I have a lot ;) ) It very much depends on the condo building and your lender - it is a case by case basis. Sometimes you have to find the condo you want first - then find a lender that will lend to that development. Probably not the answer you want, sorry.

If you need some names of lenders that lend to condo buildings feel free to contact me, I'd be happy to pass along the information I have!

This house is owned by a private seller but is currently being sold as a short sale. There is a contract betweeen the seller and a buyer but it has not yet been approved by the mortgage bank who has power to accept or reject the offer. It is currently being shown for backup offers in case the bank rejects the current offer. Are you interested in seeing this property? Give me a call at 913-707-3800 and we can set up a showing, on this property or other similar homes in Olathe.

I don't know about all the 2nd mortgages, liens and such I think they are out of luck so to speak - but your bank probably put it up for auction for what they felt was owed on it (and bought it back themselves as often noone bids and buys at sheriffs sales). Once you get behind and in default they start tacking on all the late charges and the foreclosure attorney fees. But when the redemption period is up and the put it on the market with a Real Estate Company - it may end up selling for only 60% more or less of what is or was actually owed against it. ... more

Yes, there is. Once it's on the internet it never goes away.

Ads for a specific property disappear when they expire from Trulia or when the person who posts the ad removes it In our case, we remove the ad when the new renter moves in.

The Multiple Listing Service in Kansas City historically has not had a good way for realtors to track rental inventory. A couple of months ago, they began allowing us to input rental inventory; I would be happy to share that list with you if you haven't resolved your living situation yet. If nothing else, I can pass on some contact information for a company that rents homes in the area.

You would probably want to look on the east side of Olathe (66062), becoming very difficult to find decent, affordable rentals here. Might be able to find an older duplex in that range.

Since no link is visible, either directly contact the listing agent, or any local agent/realty office can also help, they all have access to the same information.

Hi Jami,
You ask several important questions that can be best answered by a Professional Realtor. My office, Reece and Nichols WestGlen, is working with Rodrock to finish several neighborhoods thru out Johnson County. I am currently working with two different families, as their Buyers Agent, to successfully purchase homes in Rodrock communities. I also live in one myself. Rodrock currently has some very aggressive buyers incentives available that you need to be made aware of. Please feel free to cal me on my cell, or reach me by email and I will gladly give you answers to all of your questions.
