The concrete is an issue. Almost bought a home from Capital, the front porch and patio looked like a 10 year old had poured it. They said it had rained right after they poured it. They were not willing to replace it. It was a brand new house. So, LSS, I went somewhere else. ... more

Somehow basic math escapes many of my otherwise intelligent friends on this topic. They, say "you cannot pass up a mortgage rate of 3%". I say "but I can only earn 2% on the money in a Certificate of Deposit". Please help me understand why I would take out a loan to pay rate higher than I can earn on the money if I keep it. Of course, the opportunity cost of capital (2% in the example) depends on the asset class you would otherwise invest the money in. Yes, you could take the mortgage and invest your capital in the stock market and cross your fingers. Assuming your home choice is average, you would be elevating your overall risk. Is that what you want to do at this stage in your life? Also, paying cash will also help you in price negotiation. Cash is King! ... more

YES a person with felony can Buy any home of their choice as long as there is not a restriction on the person that stipulate that they cannot live in certain area. As for Renting a home it would be up to the individual landlords to decide, if they do a background check or you choose to disclose.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this does not require us pulling your credit and will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted for a FREE no obligation consultation.

Susie Kay answered:
It depends on your local real estate market. Here in DFW area, we are experiencing a hot seller's market in many cities. With so many offers on the table sellers won't even look at those asking for closing cost. Lenders can tell you that whatever they want but doesn't mean it's going to happen. You would need to work with a local realtor to learn about the local market.

I hope this makes sense!

Trulia receives data feeds from other companies that receive data feeds from the MLS. It's really just an advertising site; they make their money off of Realtors. Hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent and you can receive information directly from the MLS, not a middle man. Visit for a referral.
