Hi Christa, I highly recommend you read the article I linked below before you start your application. Basic things like knowing to type it all, use dividers, tabs and a table of contents. All really important so you don't get it rejected automatically!

For the cover letter, please see the article, believe there's a sample in there you can reference. Or at least advice.

As a former realtor, do NOT ask that question. It is a form of steering and will get you into trouble. The best way to ask the question is:

"Where do you live now?" "What is your current address?" This way it means you need their address for your records and does not indicate steering. ... more

Hi Jerellann,

It sounds like you are off to a good start! You credit score is considered good (at the very least) therefore your chances for getting approved for a mortgage is good also. However, if you need to include your husbands income in the transaction, than his credit score will be factored in as well.

A good part of the home buying process is connecting with a top Realtor to educate you throughout the entire process, so you don't have to try to figure all of this out on your own. Buying a home is a serious, and somewhat complicated process that should be taken seriously.

If you feel you would like to get some additional help, please contact me . I work with a real estate referral network that I think you may find helpful.

Rhonda Holt answered:
I would definitely hire an agent, you probably think of course I would say that. Let me explain, an agent or broker that has experience selling co-ops usually has a list of buyers already and know other agents they can call in that usually has buyers as well. Another thing is, co-ops are difficult to sell on your own because you have to work closely with the buyer, lawyers, co-op management and lender to get the buyer through successfully. With buyers looking to purchase a co-op there's not much room for error in their financials and credit. ... more

Brian Nguyen answered:
Have you considered what you will do when it comes to financing for you new home? Before you start looking for homes I strongly recommend you get pre-approved. This is important because it gives you an idea of the price range you can afford. Also, offers from individuals with pre-approvals are taken much more seriously. I am a lender based out of California and I have done plenty of loans throughout the state. I would be glad to speak with you to help you get the loan you need so feel free to contact me. Good Luck!
