I think we are off the bottom and headed in the right direction,however my crystal ball is a little foggy on predicting rate of appreciation. I can say that the last couple of years few homeowners have realized little if any appreciation and many properties have decreased in value.... more

Credit Scores do effect your ability to get a loan. Find an agent who will take time to go over the facts building good credit and be sure to follow through diligently. It may take a while to build your score to the level you would prefer, but it's worth the time and effort. Your interest rate for mortgages are directly related to the score. If you have serious credit score issues consult a professional credit counselor and inquire about having them assist in cleaning up old delinquencies reported incorrectly or that have been satisfied. It may cost you around $300 or more but is a good investment for your future. Best regards.... more

It can be extremely difficult to get a home loan without a down payment unless you are a veteran or seeking a USDA/rural approved property. If this applies to you then I suggest looking into a VA or USDA loan. Other than that, you will need a down payment. The smallest down payment would be an FHA loan which only requires 3.5%. There are also down payment assistance programs that you can look into depending on your area. Either way, the best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

The first questions is....why do you want to sell FSBO? Have you had a bad experience with an agent or do you just want to try it on your own first? Be careful because sometimes the FSBO.com sites can cost you quite a bit upfront....even if your home doesn't sell.
