With the offer in and verbally accepted is there still a chance to negotiate closing costs or did I loose that chance by submitting my offer? Can I add a realtor after the offer?

Hello houseguy9, You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice.you need to know your qualifying perimeters and maximum payment you are looking to achieve.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may consider from as low as 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million.

Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:

The existing inventory of 3bd 2ba condos of 1,462sf built in 2013 start from 918k in 95035 zip code. The existing older single family homes start from 835k for 3bd 2ba 1,168sf updated but built in 1963 in 95035 zip code.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Sorry to hear of the difficulties you are currently encountering in needing to make some sales.
I am an owner seller for the most part, but only because I have yet to find an agent I would feel comfortable working with, I know he or she is out there. I have properties for sale in Costa Rica in strategic and fundamental locations. I spend time in San Antonio Texas and Costa Rica. The wife and I are ready to retire, so we want to sell and just enjoy our senior years. Hopefully, we can help, lots of folks in the USA and Canada are moving to Costa Rica.

Sheryl Arndt answered:
Hello Chris, it most likely means "short pay" which is same as "short sale". These types of transactions are risky depending on the bank and can take longer to close as well as price goes up.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You may qualify FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and from 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs? You would need a minimum 640 fico score to consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

The purchase in Riverside start from 119k for 1bd 1ba condo, from 145k for 2bd 2ba condo, from 224k for 3bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from 195k for 2bd 1ba home.
