Buying a home without my name on the mortgage?

Answer
Yes, you can do this with all cash.Or, if you are buying with a partner and the partner is eligible for a mortgage, then you don't need to have your name on the mortgage.   Your income would not help in qualifying.Or, perhaps I didn't understand your phrase.  Do you care to expand on your question.

why are your listing out dated with what the realtors list and what is bank owned?

Answer
Zillow is as up to date as those who feed listings to Zillow care to make it (i.e. it is under control of the other end of the feed).   It can be very frustrating.  In some communities it is up to date, in other communities it is a waste of time.    figure out what works best for you in your community and go with it. Bank owned properties are very problematic especially if you are looking at those with blue dots rather than red dots.   The blue dot properties are not on the market at this time, although may be at some point in the future.

Where can I find the best deal near Fremont, CA for buying a house?

Answer
Renting for a while to learn the area and the traffic patterns is prudent.   With a median home price of $725k, renting will also provide time to build up your income and down payment.     The Bay Area traffic is very heavy and getting heavier, so go carefully.

No question, just asking you to get the facts straight.

Answer
have you, perchance, examined the public records on your home?   Several websites show 4 bedrooms, suggesting that the error is coming from public records.   This is not unusual with new homes as builders often file information before construction then change plans.

Property Manager Takes My Appliances

Answer
Being a long distance landlord is tough even from a few hundred miles away, and sometimes requires going to the location to sort out the issues. All landlords need a lawyer on their team.   It is time to contact yours or establish a relationship with one local to the properties.
