Hi Shirley,

This is a very tough situation to be in. My advise is to get qualified for your mortgage and purchase your home but you will have to take the bus for a few weeks while you are buying your home. After you have closed on your home then you can find a decent car to purchase as the mortgage does not affect your car buying power. It will take some discipline and I wish I was closer to help you with transportation as I have a 2nd car that I rarely drive. If you are interested I can qualify you over the phone and provide you with an approval Letter to start the process.

I think that you could get a seller to be willing to make those repairs before you close, by offering to add that price to what you'll pay them. A lot of it will depend on who you talk to and what arguments you make though. I would definitely suggest talking to professionals to get quotes on those things before you even consider talking to the sellers. That way they'll know what kind of investment they'll be putting in.

I would contact a local lender to see what you qualify for. There are loan options out there that you might be able to use.

Mortgaging is always an option. You should go to your bank to see if they can help you get the process in motion. Essentially you'd be borrowing money, and using the house as collateral, than paying the money back with interest. If you do a bit of research about the process, then go to your bank, you should be in a pretty good place overall. I hope you're able to get this all figured out without too much stress.

Hi Elaine,

If you are still looking for a ranch home with a small yard and close to GA 400,
I have one listed. Not sure of your price range, however with this $149,000 home
and 5% down = $7,450 you can have an estimated monthly payment of $931,
this includes mortgage insurance, HOA dues and tax and insurance escrows.
This is based on a 30 yr fixed loan with 4.125% interest rate. This payment is an estimate
and may vary. I am not a lender but do believe with our current market, if you have good credit
it could be cheaper to buy than to rent. Hope this helps you with your decision. If you would
like to contact me I can be reached at 678-357-2126.

If you want to view the property click on "my featured property" on the web site below.

Take Care,

Denise Humphrey

attypahl answered:
I am a real estate attorney here in Atlanta and I enjoy closing properties on site (with chocolate in tote) since it allows me the chance to get out of the office. Some things to consider when opting to close on site:
1. Logistics. Most lender closing packages arrive shortly before closing. Choose a lender than can guarantee package arrival at least 24 to 48 hours prior to closing. New construction loan closings often involve last minute underwriting issues. Consider also that most lenders will not send their package until these issues have been resolved.
2. Funding. The majority of lenders require funding documents at the closing table, after documents have been signed. The closing office would need a high capacity scanning device and internet access in order to get the documents to the lender for final approval.
3. End of Month. The last day of the month, the last Friday of the month and days before holidays are by far the most popular closing days. Avoid these days, since it can affect logistics and funding. Closing the first week of the month is optimum.

Suwanee is located in two counties, Gwinnett and Forsyth and both offer upscale neighborhoods such as Laurel Springs, Grand Cascades, Olde Atlanta in Forsyth and The River Club, Edinburgh,and Rivermoore Park in Gwinnett. Both Suwanee's offer excellent schools, but Forsyth County schools are ranked higher according to School Digger and for sure the property taxes are lower in Forsyth County. ... more

This is a quesiton for your Buyer's Agent when you are ready to make an offer on a specific home.

We are very much in a seller's market in much of Atlanta. This means that homes (that are in good condition and accurately priced) are not staying on the market for very long. Many of them are seeing multiple offers and quite are few are selling above list price. This holds true for HUD REO's. Most HUD home that I am hearing about are being overbid on.

This same story is now playing throughout Atlanta. There is really not much the Buyer's Agent can do to get an offer accepted by the Seller when another Buyer offered them a higher net.

If you are looking to purchase a property, working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at
