If the offer and acceptance is in in a contract has been signed, then I would say that yes, you would need to stop showing--and your realtor should update the listing to pending or under contract, so other realtors would then discourage buyers...however, you can always accept back-up offers should you receive them, the other buyers just need to be aware that it is a back-up offer in case the financing or other factors make the first offer unclosable. That said, you could also put in the contract that other offers would still be accepted and if you really think your house is in such demand, create a bidding war...but that would have to be in writing to be very clear that the price may change. Look at it this way, if you put in an offer on a house, it was accepted and then you found out that others were still traipsing through--how would you feel? ... more

First I would suggest checking your FICO/credit scores, there are free on-line credit ratings sites, Credit Karma, and others. Then I would suggest start looking on-line for houses in the areas you want to live, Trulia and Zillow both have mortgage calculators so you can then see if the houses you want are the houses you could realistically afford. We just bought a home long-distance, never actually saw it in-person until we already owned it, but you have relatives to do the initial 'look'--which is what we did, had our son go with realtor to look at the place. Once you have determined you can do it, get a realtor and make a trip to look at a list of homes. Good luck!! ... more

There is no age limit--qualification is based on ability to pay, as in credit rating and income, only. It would be consider discrimination to use age, race, gender, or ethnicity.

NEIGHBORHOOD ASSISTANCE CORPORATION OF AMERICA is a SCAM company. Receiving staggering amounts of money from private and Taxpayers, City,County, State.
They provide very little in return.
I have attended at minimum FOUR events in Orlando Florida. Each event was 10-11 hours long, arriving first thing in the morning with a large file of documents.
Long, long wait. After all the waiting and you get to your assigned station with the Bank, you wait some more and eventually, the bank will deny your claim. Why? it's not specific, just a general statement, you are not qualified, or whatever blah blah blah.
You will see some folks there who scream out in joy, like they're in a Jerry Springer Show, about how they saved thousands.
NACA is there to increase their membership numbers and they use this to show everyone how powerful and huge they are. It's about membership numbers.
OBTW, good luck on removing yourself from their multi year marketing emails. They will not remove your name. It lowers their numbers. COMMUNITY THUGS. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.
