Sun Tzu, Home Buyer in Stockton, CA

Need advice on offer with 45 days closing period, CDAP for down payment to FHA loan and requesting closing cost credit.

Asked by Sun Tzu, Stockton, CA Fri Mar 1, 2013

I live in northern Ca. I am trying to buy a house. I'm using CDAP for my FHA down payment. I've been making offer as much as $15k over the listing price. I'm asking for 45 closing period and $2k-$3k closing cost. I'm struggling to get my offer accepted. Does anybody have any advice for me? Thanks

Hi Sun Tzu,

As long as you are offering more than the purchase price, the seller paid closing costs shouldn't be an issue. Your 45 day close may not be helping your offer. A 30 day or less close would be more appealing to the seller.

Get a Pre-Approval from your lender to submit with your offer, not just a Pre-Qualification letter. The Pre-Approval will show the seller that you are an Approved Buyer, plus, you should be able to close within 2 - 3 weeks once you have been Pre-Approved.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions, I'd be glad to help. Good luck with your offers!

All the best,
