Buyer paid closing costs average between 2 to 5 percent of the purchase price. It would include any loan fees, points, attorney fees, title insurance, inspections, appraisals and the like. There are also several fee calculators on the internet that could help. ... more

The decision depends on your current mortgage terms. You may not want to refinance if you've already got a really good rate, like 2.5% or something.

Hi, I have a perfect investment for you. I have an ebay auction live right now for a 3/1 in Jacksonville. The property rents for $650-$700 a month and sold earlier this year for $65,000. Comparables are around $50k. It has central A/C and is in overall good condition although it needs cosmetic repairs.

Asking price is $18,900. My auction is for the down payment (current highest bid is only $6.00) and

I will OWNER FINANCE the balance!

If you prefer to purchase outright (without financing) we can discuss that option as well.

Call, email or text me with questions - 561.444.8470 OR

Bartram Springs is a very nice area and still growing. Depends on where you are looking as to the number of shot sale and foreclosures, there are new homes both detached and town homes. The values or starting to become fairly stable, but we still do not know if there will be any further decline.

What are your requirements/needs in your house search?

You need to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for. Be careful giving out any financials online or by email to just anyone.

Please see my blog with tips and advice on getting a mortgage

Condos are under considerable price pressure given the excess supply. My advice would be to bid low--look at what other properties sold for within the last 6 months. It is a buyers market and you have nothing to lose by bidding on the low side. Look up the property in the assessors office online and see what the buyer paid for it. That gives you an idea of their bottom line. Look when they bought--if it was during the 2005/2006 bubble, the property is surely going to be overpriced. Bid low. If they say no, so what? There are tons of condos on the market; plus, you have nothing to loose and potentially everything to gain-- sellers will sometimes take a loss if they have a strong incentive to sell (divorce, delinquent payments, job transfer). The market certainly has not bottomed--most are predicting at least another year for any type of recovery. You also may wish to consider a single family home;- over the long term much better appreciation and resale value. ... more
