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.

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.

Dear Blumroy:

I am curious, has the buildings reserve fund been increasing or decreasing over the past three years. That is an important thing to look at.

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!

Dear Bonita:

Fees vary but for a "cookie-cutter" type closing around $1500 seems about normal.

Personally I would worry less about cost than getting a good attorney based on recommedations from friends, relatives, co-workers etc. I like working with attorneys that have their skin in the game as opposed to those off-loading to an assistant/para-legal.

Dear Jean:

Karla and others have provided some good responses.

You'll get the best deal on a studio or any property if you are financially qualified for both the required down payment and eligible for the necessary remaining mortgage amount. Co-ops may have stricter requirements than lending institutions so ensure you fully understand the financial requirements (the seller's agent should be able to assist you).

We always perform our own due diligance with potential buyers before showing them properties.

Also we do have a nice studio co-op at 1615 Ave. I that we can discuss.

Sri-

Attorney fees vary for every type of transaction that you hire them for. I would suggest consulting a reputable lawyer and asking him about the fees concerning the specific scope and circumstance surrounding what you're looking to do.

One such lawyer that I know of is Michael Reinhardt, Esq. He's a great Brooklyn Attorney that many people I know have used for their clients (including myself). Feel free to give him a call at 718-377-7798. Don't be afraid to tell him that I sent you!

Bruce Lynn answered:
Check with your attorney, but someone has to pay, either the previous owner or the current owner. If you transfered title through a title company they should transfer the deed free and clear to you checking the taxes and having them cleared before the transfer. If you did it on your own and you didn't check to see if there were outstanding taxes then the new owners could likely be responsible. If this was part of an estate, the estate should pay up to the time of the transfer, but ck with the attorney handling the estate. ... more
