There are several neighborhoods that meet this criteria. Can you define newer? Also, would you rather be in a single family or town home? Feel free to answer here or contact me through my profile. ... more

No. I wouldn't sell unless it was for a specific reason. All you will do is churn taxes. Owing that little should mean you can:
1) finance to low rates if you have not already.
2) live in the home with low payments if you wish,
3) rent with position cash flow if you want to live elsewhere
4) sell it when ever you have sound reason to do so.

You're in a strong equity position which gives a patient person lots of options and opportunity.

Enjoy . . .

Good morning TitanYoung09,

Here's a frank answer to your question from a Mortgage Professional with 23 years in the business: the best way to get your mortgage approved in a timely manner is to work with a Local Mortgage Banker (not a regular bank) and to have all your "ducks in a row" in terms of documentation.

That having been said, industry news reports yesterday reported processing times for loan approvals are 25% slower due to the high volume of refinance transactions in the system with Lenders. Add to this industry issue the fact you wish to use a City program for funds. I rarely ever closed loans with NYC subsidies here in New York and I must tell you each time was a timing nightmare. In the few cases I did those loans, I was approved and ready to close in a few weeks and we waited an inordinate amount of time for the City Agency to get its act together so we could close. Maybe your local agency works faster, although I doubt it.

Bottom line: find a VERY experienced Mortgage Banker like myself who can get all the "I's" dotted and "T's" crossed out of the gate to move your loan through as quickly as possible.

Hi Jrh3030,
The criteria that you've provided is a little vague. My advice is to get to know a good buyers agent who will help you determine what you want, what you need, and where you want it. A good buyer agent will get to know you and your wife and help you find the right home for you.

You've got plenty of time to shop around so avoid agents who try to sell you on their listings. There are literally thousands of agents who list properties and it is in their best interest to try to sell those to you first. A buyers agent will provide you with all the listings that fit your needs and wants.

Sorry to report that what you heard is not reality. There are apartments in the Murfreesboro area starting at $495 and up. There are many house rentals available with 3 or 4 bedrooms for $750 and up. You could share with two room mates and get by very inexpensively. Please visit my site for additional real estate information! ... more
