Well, it solely depends upon the lenders who have different credit score ‘cut-off’ rates. There are quite a few handful of them who even offer home loans to individuals with poor credit or bad loans. You can certainly try your luck there. ... more

In real estate, "the devil is in the details." That's why I call listing agents about a property, and see how much information they readily make available to me. If I list five items I'd like, and they can't be bothered to respond...easy answer! On the other hand, the best agents are never too busy to spend time to educate potential clients. I've always had this indicator carry forward into the client relationship. All the best to you.

The sky is the limit! You can counter offer back to the seller with anything you want. What I would do is try to find out the seller's motivation for selling and try to satisfy that and get what works best for you. You could ask the seller to defer some of the 20% to a later date or anything else that helps your situation and helps the seller. This could be a win win situation for both parties.

I wish you the best,

Either you or your agent or the listing agent should be able to find out this amount from the seller. The best way to find out what the back HOA dues is to ask, and the HOA may be willing to negotiate down those fees. I would definitely find out at least a fair estimate of what you would be expected to pay before you proceed. Best of luck! ... more
