This is an Ihda program. Available to first-time buyers only. There are other requirements, but it is a down payment assistance program.

You should talk to a lender on what else is required and if you are eligible.

I paid an attorney to lower my home tax bill. The attorney should not charge much upfront if at all to do this. If you want contact information on a good attorney email or call me.

Brian Nguyen answered:
In order to get a loan for a house you will need income. Lenders will also ask for proof at least two years of income. Although your credit score and down payment is there, the income is an important part that lenders look at when you apply for a loan. It doesn't hurt to talk to lenders anyways so I would still recommend that. Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can! Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 brian.nguyen@nafinc.com ... more

Lucky: I recently wrote a blog post about this very thing. I'm adding the link below.

1.Remove any soft surfaces like drapes, upholstery, carpet and wall paper. You may be able to remove the odor from drapery by having them dry cleaned, but you will never be able to totally remove smoking odors from carpet or upholstered furniture no matter how many times you have them cleaned. Wallpaper is porous and absorbs odors. Remove it as you cannot remove smoking odors from it 100%.

2. Have the ducts cleaned and change any furnace filters.
3. Paint every painted surface, using Kilz as a primer. If you just paint with no primer, you will get nicotine stains seeping through within a few months.
4. Change all light bulbs and tubes. Nicotine coats all surfaces and as the light bulbs heat up, they act as fragrance diffusers of smoking odors.

I hope this helps!

Trying to think outside the box for you....Entertaining and accepting can be way different..
How about telling them verbally you will pay $2000 more than their current offer up to your cut off price, if they give you 90 days to sell your house?
It is kind of an after the fact escalation clause. Of course, your agent is the one representing you and you should consider their opinion strongest.
