Each agent will be different. Depends on your experience. Leaving the job to the professionals is often the way to go. You should, at the very least, have an attorney on your side. There are required disclosures that you will need to prepare. I would consider paying a Realtor 3% of the transaction and step back and let them represent you. This fee can be considered in the negotiated price. ... more

Jtychris, there is only 1 "Westcliffe" area defined in the Realtors MLS System, so I assume that's the one you're referring to...west of Congo Road in Saline County. There are currently 2 for sale and there have been 18 sales. The average sold price has been $395,000 and about $130 per square foot. All of them are on 3+ acres of land. The 2 for sale are $375K and $450K. If you'd like me to email you any of these listings, just send me your email address to ... more

You can get approved with under a 600 credit score for home loan. I have had clients with a 580 credit score get approved for an FHA loan just 3.5% down, The Lenders Network is the place to start for any questions loan related.
Good Luck!

Owning a home is a great step toward living the American dream. Your goal is great, but you definitely need to prepare for the process. You need to get with a lender to 'pre-approve' you for a home loan based upon your current credit history, income, and debt. As a high school student, you may not have either of those three and they are the most important criteria a lender uses for lending money toward a home purchase. If you have the ability to pay cash for some reason, then the pre-approval is not required. I have a lender partner, who would be glad to check on your pre-approval. Just let me know.

Once a lender has provided the amount that you qualify for on a loan, the next step is to get with a local REALTOR to help you find the right home for you based upon the criteria you desire...location, size, features, lot vs acreage, etc.. As a buyer's agent, I will be able to find the properties that fit your criteria and show you all properties available for purchase including distresses properties such as foreclosures and short sales, which can provide great discounts on a quality home. It is also good to remember, that as your buyer's agent, my real estate fees are paid by the seller, not you!

Once you locate a home you desire, the REALTOR then begins the negotiation process with the seller's agent. This is a very important part of the entire process. The negotiation skills of the REALTOR may save, or cost, you thousands. Last year, I averaged over $15,000 in savings for my buyers through concessions paid from the seller.

After the home you desire is officially under contract between you and the sellers, your buyer's agent then works over the next 30+ days with your lender, title companies, inspectors, surveyors, etc to transfer the ownership of the home to you. Upon the closing date of the transaction, the home is yours.

I would be glad to help, so you can call/text me at 5015809151 or email at
