Listing agents, landlords & owners post their listings for sale or rent and it's their decision on how many pictures and type of pictures to post. If a listing doesn't have adequate photos or poor quality photos, well, it's on them - not you. Their listing will suffer and they will suffer the consequences. ... more

Hi Martin,

Thank you for your service,

VA loans do not require a down payment in most cases and you can use your entitlement as many times as you want.

In my opinion the VA mortgage is the best financing option available so you absolutely should use it buy your home.

Good morning Dobirdsmommy,

First steps:

Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.

Get a referral to a good, local, real estate attorney. Call the attorney, retain the attorney so you have her information handy when you make an offer. Having that information at time of offer helps you demonstrate to the Seller how serious you are, and they will consider your offer with more interest.

Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.

Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

Put together your Team of real estate professionals and shop 'til you drop!

Ron Thomas answered:
There are many PRICES for a House:
There is the Price that the owner's think it is worth.
There is the Price each Buyer thinks it is worth.
There is the Appraised Value.
The Assessed Value,
There is the Market Value as determined by a CMA.
And there is the SELLING PRICE, when someone actually BUYS the house.

All of these will probably be different, although each can be vigorously defended by its proponent.

The only one that is concrete, is the SELLING PRICE; because, by definition, a "willing and able buyer put up their money, and the Sellers accepted.

Everything else is just OPINION.

Yes, 50% consider your tax portion, which is a deductable deduction and other 50% goes toward maintaining the complex.

I agree with Rey. The purchase price will determine if it is a good buy or not. I like co-op because at the very lease the board verify potential buyer’s financial background.

Excepting the child psychology, you have gotten some fairly good advice. Offering what you want to pay seems fair enough, and let them counter you. The only thing missing in your advice so far is casting a spell, smoke and mirrors, or reading the entrails...
Seriously, offer what you think is fair considering the maintenance is too high for you. The worst that can happen is they refuse your offer. Jim
