Aileen Vazqu…, Other/Just Looking in New York, NY

Looking to buy a house in Orlando, Fl. Preferably, Avalon Park Area 32828 need a great place for little kids (toddlers) and excellent school.

Asked by Aileen Vazquez, New York, NY Fri Jul 5, 2013

I have seen many houses in foreclosures but not sure about the procedure and If we need to be in Orlando to qualify for a house. We are from NYC and we are planning to move ASAP (this year). Houses from $100,000-$150,000 prefer 4 bedrooms but can be 3. We are Spanish-English speakers. Need a bilingual person. Thanks.

I'm not bilingual but can answer your questions. I have assisted Spanish-speaking only customers through translator.

No, you do not have to be in Orlando to be pre-qualified for a loan. But it's much better if you get pre-approved rather than just a pre-Q. A pre-approval requires an application and actual pre-loan process of submitting required docs and bears more strength of intent and ability to purchase a home. A letter from your loan consultant will be required with any offer you submit.

You definitely need an accurate assessment of your buying power before beginning your home search. Income and expense ratios, credit score, debt ratio (i.e. car loans, credit card debt) and other factors affect your purchase ability. It is necessary to know all this before seeing even one home.

I have great referrals if you need a loan consultant - Joshua Velazquez and Christine Wilson. You can find their contact info at the bottom of my Buyer Resources page on my web site.

If you are only looking at foreclosures, be aware that you will have a tough time beating cash offers. Even if your offer is higher and has better terms, banks prefer cash which typically avoids appraisals and other loan process issues. It's also a much quicker closing time, days rather than weeks.

I've shown homes that have sold in range up to $1M in Avalon Park. I have also worked with buyers from Lindenhurst, NY, if that's close enough. If you decide you would like to speak with me further, just give me a call. Pleased to be of assistance. :)

Hello Aileen,

The home buying process is as simple as you make it. If you are financing you can get yourself pre-qualified for a home loan from where you are located. If you are buying cash, make sure to have a proof of funds letter from the bank.

We will also need to know what is it that you are looking for, is it a town-home or single family? A suggestion to you is to visit the area before making a decision. I was out of town before I purchased my home not too long ago. I visited family, went to the parks, and looked at properties. Then I looked at the neighborhoods in the mornings and evenings.

If you are interested I could send you more information directly to your email.
