I understand that it's probably not all that convenient, the way the system is working... but I think you probably do understand why they're not handing out cash.... right?

Don't simply rely on online values, as some may be/are inaccurate nor updated; rather review comps with any agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area; if you would like to have the property removed from the site try contacting customer service or, if you were listed with an agent ask him/her. ... more

Interview and ask questions. The lowest commission is not always the smartest option. Ask for referrals from family and friends. Good luck.

It will depend on how far along it is. in non-judicial sattes foreclsoure can be completed start to stop in under 2 months, It will depend on your state laws regarding tenant protections as how long they have to give you a notice to vacate. Not all states mandate the notify you there is a foreclosure even taking place. Once teh foreclsoure is finishedm, whoever the property is assigned to will contact you. At that time you can ask for "cash for keys" where they pay you to reloacte within a specified amount of time where you voluntarily leave instead of go though eviction which give syou relocating money. it is negiotiable so negotiate for a little more. ... more

Call your attorney this morning. He will have to review your lease and can give you proper legal advice.

My understanding is that a landlord can't simply show up on your door step and start throwing your things out the door.

By the way, refusing to fill up the oil tank in February is really poor judgement. The pipes can freeze and the house could be severely damaged as a result.

Don't wait, call the lawyer this morning.

Not sure why entertain what other people may say, or do; another's opinion may not necessarily be near the best thing for you; therefore visit areas of interest more than once, then determine best area for you. For available area properties check For school information, see links....

Hi Emilia,

Not only do banks rarely lend more than 80% of the appraised value or contract price, whichever is less, but every coop requires at least 20% downpayment. Many coops require 25% or more. You also need excellent credit, income that will support your monthly housing and living expenses as well as sufficient liquid financial assets available to you after paying the downpayment and closing closing costs to cover all of your expenses for at least 1 year and probably 2 years.

The "home" that you have hyper-linked to is a co-op - 1 bedroom. If you are interested, I or one of my agents would be delighted to help you find a new home. And yes, the price is correct.

Javier Meneses answered:
Guidelines are very clear on this. If you're selling your home as a short sale, and you're also not paying the mortgage, the answer is no. You'll have to wait at least 2-3 years before you're eligible for a mortgage again. If you're doing the short sale and not defaulted on a single monthly payment, you might be able to qualify for a mortgage right away.
