The only thing that went through the bankruptcy was a house and a credit card. The bankruptcy was caused from a divorce and at the same time my company got bought out and I had a reduction of income. The home did not foreclose on until the end of 2013 and my name did not come off the title until November 2014. I now have a good paying job for 4 1/2 years and 20,000 in savings. I have reestablished credit and some credit cards carried through the bankruptcy and I do not carry balances. My FICO is 730. I started going through the preapproval process to have a small house built that I would buy from a builder that is easy to maintain and energy-efficient. The loan officer said I would only qualify for a USDA loan based on the title not having my name removed so I would not qualify as a first time home buyer. I know that some loans will consider the bankruptcy date as the seasoning date instead of the foreclosure date as the home was included in the bankruptcy. It just makes me nervous only to have that one option and not having something to fall back on in case for some reason that loan does not go through and I just had a house built. The reason why I'm going the route of building is the area that I want to be in is full of large old homes that I just do not want to heat and maintain in the winter.<br \><br \>4 replies Fri, 08 May 2015 00:03:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Mortgage-included-in-past-Bankruptcy-what-loans-could-I-possibly-qualify-for/586006/ 2015-05-08T00:03:00Z how do I change my home address?

The seller accepted our offer, and yesterday we met with our lender to apply for our mortgage. Afterwards we found out that he provided our lender with a quitclaim deed. Where does that leave us, the buyers? Is it possible that we are getting a warranty deed even though he has a quitclaim deed? I am most definitely not interested in a quitclaim deed and it will make or break whether or not we continue with the purchase of this house. Since it says our purchase and sale agreement is subject to the property being conveyed by a warranty deed, does that mean we can back out safely if it is not?<br \><br \>6 replies Wed, 03 Jun 2015 18:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Seller-has-a-quitclaim-deed/589690/ 2015-06-03T18:32:00Z does zilow allow land for sale ads? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/does-zilow-allow-land-for-sale-ads/588807/ 3 replies Thu, 28 May 2015 16:58:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/does-zilow-allow-land-for-sale-ads/588807/ 2015-05-28T16:58:00Z how to remove an incorrect listing http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-to-remove-an-incorrect-listing/587748/ 868 tibbettstown rd information is incorrect and I want it removed immediately<br \><br \>6 replies Wed, 20 May 2015 20:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-to-remove-an-incorrect-listing/587748/ 2015-05-20T20:12:00Z USDA loan questions http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/USDA-loan-questions/587088/ What happens if I get a USDA loan, and next year I get a raise and bonus that brings me over the income guidelines.

A month ago we set up the first showing of a house we wanted to look at with an agent that we thought would make a good buyer's agent for us. It was our first time meeting him and before he would bring us into the home to look around, he took about an hour to talk about what it means to be a buyer's agent and made us sign an exclusive buyer representation agreement with a 1 year contract with him. It turned out the house we first went to see we really loved, but felt rushed walking through it because we spent an hour listening to the realtor about his buyers agreement, and there was also a showing scheduled there right after our appointment, that we just signed the agreement to get him to stop talking so we could have 5 minutes to look at the property. <br/><br/>Well, it turns out the realtor isn't working out for us. He doesn't work weekends and only works 9-5pm during the week. He is the owner of his own company and tries to find agents at his company to show us stuff on the weekends, but it never works out. There have 2 times when a house came on the market on a Saturday morning and we requested a showing over the weekend, which he couldn't do, and the house was under contract by Monday. <br/><br/>I am frustrated and want to terminate our working relationship with him. I'm not sure if this exclusive buyer representation agreement is considered a legal contract or not? And if we can "fire" him. I don't want to hire another agent and find out down the road that we own him commission for something. I would have never signed a 1 year contact with him but the contract form him brought us to sign was already filled out in advance by him with a "1 year" typed in. <br/><br/>What can I do? Can we fire him? Will we owe him commission? How do we ensure that if we end the relationship that he won't come after us for commission? Do we need to get something in writing that our relationship is over?<br/><br/>Thanks!<br \><br \>18 replies Tue, 10 Sep 2013 13:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-I-legally-fire-my-buyer%27s-agent-if-he-made-us-sign-an-exclusive-buyer-representation-agreement/510707/ 2013-09-10T13:06:00Z If I list my FSBO on Zillow, can I rescind the listing at any time and are their any costs involved http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/If-I-list-my-FSBO-on-Zillow-can-I-rescind-the-listing-at-any-time-and-are-their-any-costs-involved/582660/ 3 replies Mon, 13 Apr 2015 11:29:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/If-I-list-my-FSBO-on-Zillow-can-I-rescind-the-listing-at-any-time-and-are-their-any-costs-involved/582660/ 2015-04-13T11:29:00Z Are you allowed to list a seasonal cottage FSBO on Zillow? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Are-you-allowed-to-list-a-seasonal-cottage-FSBO-on-Zillow/581218/ Under the "What types of properties do you accept" section it says "At this time, we only accept residential listings on Zillow. &nbsp;We do not currently allow commercial, industrial, timeshares or farm and agricultural properties".&nbsp; Does that exclude cottages?<br \><br \>2 replies Wed, 01 Apr 2015 19:46:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Are-you-allowed-to-list-a-seasonal-cottage-FSBO-on-Zillow/581218/ 2015-04-01T19:46:00Z home for sale on Montgomery Rd. in Boothbay, ME http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/home-for-sale-on-Montgomery-Rd-in-Boothbay-ME/579429/ 2 replies Thu, 19 Mar 2015 02:38:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/home-for-sale-on-Montgomery-Rd-in-Boothbay-ME/579429/ 2015-03-19T02:38:00Z
