Hi There,

A smart man once said, "The best way to achieve a large goal is to set small goals". I would suggest meeting with a lender and seeing how close or far away you are from getting the funding you need to achieve the home you desire. Have great year and best of luck in the future!

Sure you can.
Been a single or married has nothing to do with what you can buy.
Its all about your qualification and income.
I would meet with an Real Estate agent and get a few name of direct lenders, talk to them, submit my documents to the one I liked the most, get my loan approval and look for a POOL house with a big yard and anything else in it that your heart desire. Just keep your loan amount in mind.

That is a tough question, but it would ultimately all depend on what you qualify for. Also, depending on what areas of MV you are looking to buy in, there are always houses with exactly what you are looking for. I am assuming as a teacher and single mom, your income is somewhat limited. However that doesn't mean you can't find a detached condo with a community pool that could serve both your purposes. You could get the feel and look of a SFR but benefit for all the amenities of a condo complex. I actually have an excellent tract in mind for you (just off Oso Pkwy) if you are interested in discussing it further.

I am a real estate broker with an office in MV. I would love to assist you more if you would like to discuss some possible options. I also have some lenders I can refer you to so you can see what you qualify for. Its a process with several steps but if you view my profile of sold properties, you can see I have a long history of getting it done!

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
