If you are moving into a subdivision with a HOA then yes you are pretty much stuck with whatever the HOA outrageous dues are. But remember, not all HOA are created equal. Be sure to do a drive-about in the subdivision to see if the price of the HOA justifies itself.

Micah Matson answered:
Get 3 bids to fix foundation and 3 bids to fix septic system, all from licensed contractors. After that, decide if the house is still worth buying despite those problems, or adjust the price you are willing to pay. If you don't have the extra cash to fix the problems you should talk to a mortgage broker and see what loan programs will give you the ability to pay for the repairs. Or you could ask the seller to do these repairs prior to closing.

To view or make an offer on a property that is listed for sale, you should be represented by a Buyer’s Agent. The Buyer’s Agent will work on your behalf throughout the transaction. This is very important since the Listing Agent represents the seller.

By working with a Buyer's Agent, you are only seeing the homes that are actually listed for sale at that time. Also, having one Buyer’s Agent dedicated to you will greatly maximize your home buying experience since they will be locating available homes that meet your criteria as best as possible..

If you need a recommendation on a Buyer’s Agent, please contact me at (404) 591-2453 or I would be happy to put you in touch with someone who can assist you.

The seller of the property will want to make sure that you are qualified to purchase the property should your offer be accepted. Working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at
