Portsmouth Redevelopment & Housing Authority has a website you can go to for more information. Whether a landlord accepts housing vouchers (mostly known as "Section 8") depends on the individual landlord. It's best to ask that question directly of a landlord who has housing that you are interested in renting. Good luck, KK German, Wainwright Real Estate, Virginia Beach, VA

The Virginia Residential Property Disclosure (google "residential property disclosure VA") doesn't require many disclosures by the seller and encourages buyers to do their due diligence. I think it depends on how serious this "faulty electric" situation is and whether you actively try to hide it, and it's not so much an issue of do you have to repair or not on the way to closing, but what if the house burns down post closing and you represented to an inexperienced buyer that everything was ok and that buyer, relying on your assurances, did not have a home inspection. I am not a lawyer, however, if you want to explore selling your house and being on the right side of everything, please call me. Best of luck, KK German, Wainwright Real Estate

Hi Curtis, You hire your fave real estate agent to list a property if you are talking about putting it on the market. If you don't have a fave real estate agent, you can call me for a no obligation appointment to discuss listing your house for sale. I can be searched on the web for recommendations from other sellers who have used my services. best, KK German, Wainwright Real Estate, Virginia Beach, VA

Hi Tamekia, Most lenders require that you hire an agent to short sell your house. It's best to get the ball rolling as soon as possible so you can find out if you qualify. It might be advantageous for you to try to stay in the house till a sale is closing because many short sale programs will provide relocation assistance. Your lender will want to screen you for eligibility for their short sale program or the short sale program for which your loan qualifies. It is like applying for a mortgage, but in reverse. Short sale can be considered an 'honorable' way to relieve yourself of a mortgage obligation and financial experts consider a short sale to be less of a 'hit' to your credit, long term. I do short sale listings and I market my short listings the same as if it were a regular sale, to get it sold. I am a compassionate person and I am attentive to the difficulties of going through a short sale. I would be glad to meet with you for a confidential consultation on short selling your home. Best, KK German, Wainwright Real Estate, Inc.

Most banks require that you hire an agent to assist you in the short sale of your home. The sooner you get the process rolling, the better. You have to apply to your lender to short sell your house and it is much like obtaining a mortgage in reverse. Your lender will screen your application to make sure you are eligible to enter their short sale program or the short sale program for which your loan is eligible. Short sale is an 'honorable' way to relieve yourself of a mortgage obligation and is not considered to have as great an impact on your credit long term, versus just walking away from the house and letting it go into foreclosure. I do short sale listings and I market them just as I would a regular listing. I am compassionate and realize fully how difficult the decision to short sell your home is. Please feel free to contact me for a confidential consultation. KK German, Wainwright Real Estate, Inc.

Many rentals want a renter NOW. I.e. the property is vacant and they are looking for somebody to move in immediately. But admittedly some ARE advertised 60 days in advance of their availability. Therefore if you are not acquainted with neighborhoods and various locations, it doesn't hurt to start researching rents and areas now. If you already know basically where you'd like to live and you're ready to put down a security deposit, then you can actively start looking at rentals 60 days in advance.

In answer to: what are the steps in buying a foreclose property?
Locate a property that will fit your loan type and needs. Write an offer on the property and submit. Hopefully win the property and do a home inspection to make sure there are no deal breakers. Release home inspection contingency and satisfy all your lender's requests on the way to closing. Show up at closing and sign papers. An agent who is familiar with foreclosure purchases can be invaluable and our commission is paid by the seller. If you choose to work with the listing agent who represents the seller, not you, they get paid the listing agent commission AND the buyer commission, so just saying take advantage of the opportunity to have your own agent ~ it's already paid for.

Hi Paige, currently I see a couple two bdrms on 36th St and one on Hampton Blvd in Ghent. I don't think it's impossible what you're looking for, but frequently a matter of what's available when you want it. Also you probably know for rentals that will take the pets, you will be asked to pay a pet fee or pet security deposit in addition to regular security deposit. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like me to email you the reports for those, also you may wish to consider OV or Willoughby areas, to broaden your pool of possibilities. best, KK German

Hi Lillian, are you saying you have been tracking this listing and noticed that it increased in price? I have not talked with the listing agent (although I know her) but the MLS remarks say that it is an approved short sale and they are ready to go. It just MIGHT be that they received input from the seller's bank (who must APPROVE any contract) and that $140,000 will give the bank the least amount they WILL approve. For almost 2200 square feet, house built in 2005, hardwood floors, granite counters, I personally think that is quite a good price! Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.

Hi Ian, agreeing with the other local agents, yes, this is a steal of a deal because there is the Chinese drywall to contend with once purchased. If you are looking for move-in ready, this is not the house. I had a listing that sold last year, my client had purchased it from a local builder and it had the chinese drywall. The builder stepped up to the plate and remediated all of the units they had built with the chinese drywall, and it entailed stripping the house to the studs, replacing all electrical, some parts of the heating system, then putting it all back together with new drywall, paint, new flooring (destroyed in the process), all fixtures and kitchen counters. Likely it would be a rehab loan required to purchase this house. The listing agent says they do have quotes for remediation.

Hi Eric, All the schools for this rental are Bayside, high school, middle & elementary. However, this is not showing up as for rent at the moment on the MLS. Look closely at the mls number of the listing, it begins with 09, which means you are looking at a 2009 listing that an agent forgot to take down.

It's showing under contract as of Monday, and recorded yesterday in the MLS as having a contract. It IS a short sale, though, so who knows what MIGHT happen, frequently a short sale buyer gets tired and walks. You are lucky if you find a short sale at this price that has gone through 2-3 buyers, all walked, they have an approved price, and they are just waiting for the buyer who will ACTUALLY BUY IT.

Hi Rakeeshia, this unit was rented 3 days ago on the 14th. Most property managers can rent to you long distance using fedex, email and fax. At that price point (3 bdrms under $1000 in Virginia Beach) it was likely to go quickly and rented in only 3 days. If you see something else like this, you need to go for it and contact the listing agent (property manager) whose contact info is at the bottom of the page. They would be the one to contact directly for swift response. KK German, Wainwright Real Estate

There is no downpayment requirement for VA loans, Mr. Lovell. It IS possible to find something and close in two months, depending on how your budget matches your expectations in a home. That would translate into two weeks of househunting and allowing six weeks to close. Many first-timers are attracted to the 'deals' available in the foreclosure inventory, however, the home must be safe & habitable by closing and pass a VA appraisal.

If you are comparing the two locations, Chesapeake VA vs Florida, you are not going to find any 3 bedroom for $700 or less, especially with 2 dogs. Many rentals do not take pets and that is definitely a labor intensive search, esp. for larger dogs. For 3 bedroom, Chesapeake or Virginia Beach, expect at minimum $1100-1200 a month and that is being conservative. There is usually an application fee to have your credit checked (and background), $40-60 per person or couple, security deposit equivalent to the monthly rent amount, and some sort of pet fee or pet deposit for the dogs, from $250 to $500 or more for both, probably.

Hi Stephanie, There are only those six photos in the MLS as well, but I imagine they might be using model home photos for the listing, not the actual photos for that home. These are condos, so the footprint might be on the smaller side.

Hi Sandy, Every agent who lists on this site should have their brokerage information on their profile. If you are in doubt about the authenticity of an agent, you only need to call their broker and check. Perhaps the agent merely forgot to forward your info to the appropriate staff member, i.e. nothing suspicious at all. Did you try to call them when you didn't hear back (I would think their phone number is on their profile information, too...)? That's what I would suggest.

Hi Keith, this is a HUD home and the HUD website shows that it's still available. The great thing about HUD homes is they scope it all out and post the inspection report, vs other foreclosures homes which do not. Per the HUD website, this is UI, uninsurable for FHA loan, so it probably needs more than $5000 in repairs, as per their assessment. http://www.tenmanagement.com/listings/property-detail.do?list=2010-08-20&case=541-571291&code=VA I have measured the lot on-line, but this is ONLY an estimate, it appears to be about 3.5 acres.
