I'm sorry you're having that problem!! I will say it's important to have a realtor represent you as a buyer because the alternative is finding the house you want yourself (which is perfectly fine with technology these days), but whenever you find the home you want you are going to have to depend on the listing agent to represent you. Which is also fine, there are many great agents who double side deals every day and do the right thing for both parties. However, I would recommend that you excersice your right as a purchaser to choose who you want to represent you! That way if the house you think ou want pops up, you can rely on an agent who only has a vested interest in getting you the house you want for the best price, while protecting you from any major dificiencies in the house that may not have come up otherwise when using the realtor who had the home listed. You just have to consider that by calling the agent on the sign, that once you begin that transaction with them, they have twice the reward for when it closes and they may be more willing to turn a blind eye to things that may not be in your best interest to get the deal done, and provide results for their sellers. You also open the door for the sellers to be less open to disclosing things to their realtor because they don't want the realtor to run over and tell you. Anyways, just some things to consider!

I would like to refer you to a Real estate professional in your area! I am part of the largest network of Real estate professionals in the country! As a purchaser, you do not pay Realtor fees in your transaction, and this referral process is completely complimentary to you! Just click the link to my agent portal and send me a message of your name, email, and area that you plan to move to! That's it! I hope that I can help, have a great day!

A lender can't really do anything for you without a loan application, including lock in a rate. Sounds like there's a miscommunication here somewhere. It's probably best to have your loan officer clarify this statement.

If you are in need of a mortgage or have any questions regarding the FHA products please call me anytime.

There are MANY misunderstandings by many people regarding FHA loans. They are a great product so please contact me so I can assist you.

FHA allows you to claim rental income from your current home as long as there is at least 75% equity in the home.

Jim Olive answered:
I disagree with the "anytime" answers. I've seen houses go on the market at the end of the typical selling season up north and then just sit through the winter. Then, when the buyers come back in spring they aren't interested in the property because it's been on the market too long and they suspect there's something wrong with it. The only thing "wrong" was that it came on the market at the wrong time. Use a local agent and get good local advice. ... more
