If you know what you are doing then you can try selling the home yourself. Otherwise hire a realtor to assist you.

I would suggest that you did your research BEFORE you sell your home. You may want to contact some schools specializing in children with autism and ask questions. I understand that your daughter may not be in school anymore but these schools/hospitals will know more insight info than us, realtors. My previous brokerage donates to Autism Speaks, they may be able to help. Their link is below and so are links to other organization for autism.

That's a difficult questions to answer without seeing the home and how the floorplan is laid out. One has to be very careful with classifying a room as a bedroom.
I'd be happy to take a look and discuss this with you should you be interested in selling. You may contact me at nicolemurray76@yahoo.com. :) ... more

You don't need to have the complete down payment, but it have to be in the bank before your closing date, but if you deposit cash you need proof from where it came from.

Because cash is worth more to a bank than any kind of mortgage debt. The time value of money is the most powerful force in the universe for building and/or destroying wealth.
A bank can make exponentially more by immediately investing cash in other financial instruments as opposed to waiting 15-30 years for a measly 4-5% loan to mature.

The business model for realties and their agents is turnover. A realtor's interests are in
no way aligned to a property buyer or seller, because the longer an agent works for a sale
- the less money they make. Volume, volume, volume. Richard Thaler gives a good illustration of realtor collusion in the book "Nudge".

I'd strongly recommend watching the documentary "Freakonomics" on netflix, the first 15 minutes explains the misalignment of interests among agents, buyers, sellers. In a much more entertaining way than I have time here.

On the upside, you can buy that house in six months after it's had a cheap, shoddy 'remodel'
and pay the flipper an additional 200k for what in reality is probably 20k in pressboard cabinets and faux marble counters. Nevermind, there is no upside.

It really bothers me that people would get hung up on paint colors. They are the easiest things to fix. The most you would have to do is paint 2 coats. If you are unable t paint it, get a painter to come in. It seems ludicrous to me to overlook a house because the colors are "loud or obnoxious". Grow up people!~ ... more

Hello oddeyedcat, No it is not available conventional but 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.

You can go higher with FHA 3.5% down up to 636,150 from a minimum 580 fico score. 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.
