Of course you can sell your home without a Realtor, but you should take into consideration the safety risks along with knowing or not knowing if your potential buyer is qualified to purchase your home or not. Without a Realtor, you are inviting total strangers into your home that may not even be able to afford it. It shouldn't cost you a thing to interview a couple of agents. Then decide. Commissions are negotiable. ... more

Beware of Spam. Sometimes there are listings that are posted on the internet that are not actually for rent or for sale.
I suggest you contact a local Realtor to find a legitimate rental.
Best of luck to you.

Lenders go off the lower of the two credit scores, meaning the person with the 530 credit would not be eligible.

You would have to qualify on the income of the 700 borrower only.

My question for you would be do you have a plan? Often we operate without a conscious plan and the cart ends up pulling the horse !

Purchase two small notebooks, one for you and one for your wife. Commit to each other to write down all monies that are spent for one month. Then sit down and look at it together. This will show you where your money is going AND help you see if you can rechannel this spending to speed up your progress.

Next I woud suggest sitting down with a lender to see where your debt needs to be in order to purchase. This identifies the goal.

As a fellow agent of Edward Korthals, I like his advice of getting yourselves in a position where you have a solid foundation of monies in savings. Sometimes this can be accomplished by purchasing at a lower price point while interest rates are at all time lows AND committing to saving along the way. Homeownership definately has unforseen expenses that come with it.

What does your schedule look like I'd love to sit down with you and your wife and talk through some options. Best regards Deborah

It is great you are getting into the flipping market. Lititz is a great area in my opinion and you should be able to do well. There are many things to consider and I would know because I have done a few flips myself. First and foremost is to establish what the homes in the area of your flip house currently sell for in different conditions. I will be glad to share my knowledge with you howon obtaining the best price for your sale as well as guide you along the way with what you need to do with your contractors. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Call me at 717-587-5353 or feel free to email as well at
Have a great day!!
