Typically you close 3 days minimum after you get clear to close per the newer federal laws on settlement. Get ahold of your loan officer and ask for answers

As someone else recommended, this is an issue that should be discussed with an attorney. Did you have a title search done when you purchased the home? Did you buy a title insurance policy when you closed on the purchase? If so, you may want to go back to the closing agent and start there. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
They do not have to be out until the contract states, but you dont have to close until contracts states. I dont let my clients close without the seller being out and being able to complete a walk through prior to closing. If you close with them in, you become a landlord and if they damage the home or refuse to leave, it can be a nightmare ... more

It depends. If this is going to be your forever home, then losing a bedroom for your dream kitchen may be worth it. Having a home that functions they way you want it to is important.

However, if you know at some point in the future you will want to sell this home, you may want to do more research before going forward with renovations.

Are you talking about taking away a 4th bedroom, 3rd bedroom or 2nd bedroom? It can make a difference in future value of your home and number of buyers wanting a home like yours. Look at the recent sales in your neighborhood of comparable homes with your current number of bedrooms and those with one fewer bedroom. That will give you an idea of how buyers value bedrooms in your neighborhood.

Are there other options available to you? Perhaps opening a wall from the kitchen to the living room would make the kitchen appear more spacious without giving up bedrooms? Or changing the layout of your kitchen?

Which is why I often suggest home owners talk with a Realtor who lists and sells in your immediate area before jumping into a project. Although you can get estimates for the cost of a remodeling project, an experienced Realtor will be able to give you an idea as to the estimated market value of your home after the renovation project is completed. The more information you have up front, the better choices you can make.

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

Yes, as long as 3 years have passed since the foreclosure then you can buy a home with as little as 3.5% down payment.
