We Realtors have a saying... "if it isn't in writing, it didn't happen".

I would never try to talk a client out of getting something in writing.

Back in 2016 we had one major drawback. Hubby lost his job, I had an accident that made me quit my job as well. We collected thousands of money from our Home Equity line of credit (HELOC) account which works sort of like a credit card to raise our son through college. This caused our credit scores to drop drastically, the bank almost terminated our line of credit and at that point I almost regretted my existence in life. I am using this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to my sister and her BFF she introduced to us as a credit score hacker and counselor. He cleared our HELOC debt of $142,000 and raised our scores to 765 and 758. My special thanks goes to this genius hacker, we purchased our second home last week for our son. As we have promised to give him more clients if he should successfully fix our problems. We are living testimonies and confident of this miracle worker to handle all jobs, I will implore everyone facing challenges with credit scores, credit report,bankruptcy,mortgage issues to reach him on pyramideye(.)hack@outlook(.)com ... more

I need some info if anyone knows. So I've run into a snag buying a house with my boyfriend. We are trying to buy a house on a land contract but my boyfriend has judgements so the seller's don't want his name on the land contract because it could cause problems later, possibly. Is there a way for my boyfriend to be a co-signer in the background without being on the title?? Only my name will be on the title, he is just the other source of income. ... more

Most contracts contain a contingency that if you can't obtain a mortgage, you can get out of the contract. I would guess that yours has such a clause. (Ask your Realtor).

But, if you sign documents that state that you make more money than you actually make (even if it's the loan officer who suggested it... so that you could qualify for the loan)... that's mortgage fraud. That's a federal law you're breaking, and if you get caught... it's a penitentiary violation. Personally, I wouldn't want to be party to mortgage fraud.

You need to talk to an attorney or someone of authority that you trust. Be careful.

I see no discussion of heating/air vents being in the floor of a foundation building and in the ceiling for a slab home. I am trying to determine those pros and cons. Any help.

As a home seeker, I would suggest fixing anything that would be a deal breaker for the buyer, like the roof, drafty windows, plumbing, or electrical. Those are the things they will still be paying for after closing. So if you can fix the stuff that will save them money through out the life of the house, that means something. Most homebuyers are not house flippers, or have the kind of wealth that will get them homes with "Viking stoves" and "marble counter tops". However, they don't want to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, just to spend tens of thousands more. We want a one and done. After those major things, bathrooms and kitchens. When I look at a house, I look for these things. Also another reply earlier, mentioned curb appeal. They are so right, if the outside of the house doesn't look kept people will assume the inside is just as bad and just scroll on by. It's one of the cheapest, and helpful upgrades you can make. You would be surprised at the difference a neatly edged, freshly mowed lawn, along with well trimmed trees or bushes can make. Add to that some nicely placed flowering plants. And people will be checking your house out left and right. I'm not saying all that has to be done just what is the most important in correlation to your budget. As long as the mechanical long term affecting updates are made you can get away with visual upgrades like new backsplash, tiling, flooring and a good color scheme. ... more
