You may need to make more aggressive offers - larger deposits, shorter inspection periods and even a higher purchase price. In a year's timeframe 15 offers might seem like a lot but in a competitive market may not be.... more
Well, just so you know, everyone ISN'T leaving!!! Our market is strong for lower priced properties--the investment market is struggling, the condo market is struggling, but there are a fair number of buyers looking for primary residences. But it is a GREAT time to buy here, with interest rates and prices being a lot lower. And today it looks like our homestead allottment is about to increase as well--good news for those who live here. This is a wonderful place to live, work, and enjoy yourself!!! Come and visit us, and let me show you everything we have to offer!!!... more
Yes, you have to solely qualify for the loan and put your mom on the deed. Your lender might want both names on the deed, but you should be the only one needed on the mortgage. At worse case you could remove your name from the deed later, as long as the payments are made I doubt the lender would have much of a problem. Check into this more to be sure.... more
I have lived in Kissimmee/Davenport area for 22 years and love. Will not consider moving to Orlando because we enjoy the small city lifestyle. Perhaps those who are telling you otherwise have not found what they like in the area or simply dont like the perfect weather, low crime, not in a hurry lifestyle and prefer going back to the northern ways of life. Bottom line, you have to like where you live and no one can decide that for you. If it so bad here, why are they still here? Statistically we have 1000 people move to Florida everyday, they must like something.

I have had my lenders located the previous appraisal on several occasions. Your lender is going to have to do this anyway so I would ask him or her.
If you don't have a good lender yet, I would recommend using Scott Parker at Hometown Lenders, he is awesome and I have been using him for years. He can track down anything in a New York Minute. His contact information is here
Hope this helps!

Did you pay "ALL CASH" and not have an attorney review the title before you closed? A title search should have discovered a code enforcement violation--unless it was not recorded at the county.
If you did not get title insurance or if this code violation was excluded on your title policy, you may have learned an expensive lesson. Otherwise contact the title company and tell them you want to make a claim on the title insurance policy.
Good luck..... more
The listing agent may be acting at the direction of Bank of America.
I'm not sure there's any way to make an offer by going around the listing agent, nor would such an action be proper.
You (or your agent) could talk to the listing agent some more and try to change his mind. Or you could attempt to determine who the buyers are and talk to them.
Hope that helps.... more
I found this website that might help, just check it out.
