Frannie DeLuca answered:
A seller concession helps a potential buyer qualify to purchase. It is especially popular with those VA veterans loans. The seller will concede to give money back to the buyer at the closing to cover these costs. In most cases, the seller is mainly concerned with what they are netting. The price lowers your actual selling price, meaning how much money you are actually walking away with. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Have you researched all the costs involved in building a house (cost of buying land, property taxes, building materials, labor, insurance, permits, architect, contractors, etc.). Wouldn't it make more sense to buy an existing home? You can buy one recently built or one built 200 years ago. It will save you thousands of dollars if you hire a contractor & fix or change whatever you don't like. ... more

Hi Althea: It depends on the loan type and PMI insurance company's rule. Most cases no. Some mortgage insurance company will let you request for paid appraisal to see if the home has over 20% equity before they will drop the PMI. You have to contact either your lender or the mortgage insurance company. If you purchase the home a few years back, chances are the interest rate is a lot lower now. If you still have good credit and good income, another way you can do is to refinace. You can get rid of the PMI and get a lower interest rate and payment. Feel free to contact me at ... more
