Selling a property isn't rocket science but the forms and legal requirements are complicated. Just so you know up front. Do you know what you need to disclose about your house? Realtors are required to take a class yearly to understand the transaction/legal process. Also a few realtors have access to hundreds of web sites to advertise the property since newspaper ads are not as effective anymore. Also, realtors can "qualify" those that are touring your house. Sellers selling FSBO usually just want anyone to come through the house, hoping it will be a buyer. Realtors in addition can show the house anytime of day; are you planning to be available then too? You might want to just be working on getting the house in showing condition daily. Some realtors offer free staging, have professional photographers, provide a virtual tour, set your house up on multiple web sites, in addition to listing on MLS (in a way that peaks buyer's interest).
I'd love you help you in the process - just give me a call or email me if you're interested.... more
You can click on the link below and read my blog. There are links in the article for checking the income limits. Or you can contact us and we can walk you through the process. In short the income limits vary by city, county and state. In addition, income limits are broken down into two categories. 1-4 person households, and 5 plus. At 5 plus this will allow you to make more income and still be eligible. Also, for every disabled person or child, you are given a break and your Adjusted Gross Income is lowered for greater buyer power. Hope this helps.
Best of Luck!

Right now - there are MANY offers that have fallen due to buyer's financing issues. Your buyer's agent will need to be in close communication with the listing agent and the first sign of anything going amiss - needs to have your offer submitted ASAP. Even more aggressively - you can have an offer submitted immediately as a backup offer.
Communication is the key between the agents - if the listing agent understands how much you would like the house and how strong your offer is - and if something does fall apart - you will stand a chance to get this home.
I have had TWO homes recently that my buyers wanted that this exact scenario did happen and we were able to get them the home they wanted. You can never guarantee that it will happen - but there is a chance and it's worth the effort.
