Hello,

Review your closing contract: Look for the following guidelines.

(b) General property inspection and repair:

(i) General inspection: The buyer will notify the seller of any items not functioning correctly as noted by a licensed home inspector.

(ii) Property condition: Ceiling, roof, exterior and interior walls, doors windows, and foundation shall be free of leaks, water damage, or structural damage. Pool equipment, major appliances, heating and cooling, mechanical, electrical, security, sprinkler, septic and plumbing systems must be in working order. Torn screens, fogged windows, and missing roof tiles will be repaired or replaced by seller. Seller need not repair cosmetic items.

(iii) General property repairs: The seller is to pay for repairs up to the general repairs limit as shown in the contract. If the amount is higher, the seller may elect to pay the excess; or the buyer can designate which repairs are to be done so that the total does not exceed the contractual limit; or if neither party delivers written notice to the other, then either party may terminate the contract.

Issue should be disclosed by property inspection: Windows can be used as a negotiating tool.

Donna is correct...the PMI can last longer than 5 years. It doesn't matter if your house value has gone up. My house value has increased over 20, 000. I've been in for 5 years, but they won't drop PMI because they base it on my original loan value ... more

Mitch Teal answered:
Paint self applied is the most cost effective and beneficial if money is tight. If you have some financial resources that can be applied prior to listing and sale, look for your most needed area. Damaged items from excessive or abusive prior use (flooring, blinds, etc.) may need to be addressed first. Kitchen quality will frequently sell a home to the decision maker. ... more

You're asking us to predict the future. I don't look good in colourful scarves, and my crystal ball hasn't worked for at least a dozen years.

Alan May answered:
While they're out there, they're pretty rare. Most conventional loans require a minimum of 3 - 3-1/2% down from the borrower. It's not like it used to be for your parents when they had to put 20% down.

Call a few local lenders and talk to them about your situation. Good luck.
