Hello Pumpkin

I wanted to introduce myself and let you know a bit about the facility. We have 24-hour video surveillance, live in management, steel gate system, cylinder locks, A/C and None A/C, and much more. A 10X20 is going for only $69 per month and there is no deposit required on any unit. If you need storage I will give a 2nd months rent free. Thanks for you time and if you feel that we can help each other gain business I would like to speak with you.

Best Regards,

Hello Pumpkin,

I am Realtor with Coldwell Banker Riverland Realty in Marion County, Florida. I'd would be happy to send some information on current house listings in the area you requested. I know a few different local Mortgage Brokers that could assist you with a loan. The difference between Pre-approval and Pre-qualified is as follows. Pre-qualified means that a Mortgage Broker has reviewed your financial information and believes he or she will be able to get you a loan up to a certain amount. Pre-approval occurs when the Mortgage Broker your working with reviews your financial information and also submits it to a lender who also reviews your information and issues a pre-approval letter. In both cases, however, you aren't actually approved for the loan until an appraisal is done on the house and a verbal employment verification is done on the day of closing. Banks have been known to change their minds on the day of closing if any red flags appear. Owner financing is always a good way to go if the owner will go along with it. You would still need to have your financial history reviewed, in order to satisfy the owner. In some cases, you would be looking at a higher down payment and higher interest rate. Both would depend on what terms the owner was willing to offer. I hope this answers your questions. I am a local expert in the Ocala area, and would be happy to assist you in anyway. Feel free to contact me at jfrasier74@aol.com or at 352-497-4130 anytime. I look foward to hearing from you.

A home-financing technique in which buyer borrows from the seller instead of, or in addition to, a bank. Sometimes done when a buyer cannot qualify for a bank loan for the full amount. also called seller financing or purchase-money mortgage.

# A credit card offer with "pre-approved" only means that a potential customer has passed a preliminary credit-information screening. A credit card company can reject the customers it invited with "pre-approved" junk mail if it doesn't like the applicant's credit rating.

* A potential borrower is “pre-qualified” when a lender completes a cursory review of the potential borrower’s financial situation.
