Dan Taylor answered:
Contact your local lenders/banks to determine current rates and estimated rate increases. Uncle Sam (The FED) has a large influence on current rates at any given time. While some lenders and financial advisers may have economic indicators and studies to base their assumptions of future fluctuations, no one really knows what the FED will do until they do it. ... more

It's an issue for some homeowners to keep their own properties up to par. Maybe we should do that first.

Hi Montana,

This could be an issue. FHA generally doesn't want borrower's having more than one FHA loan at a time - although there are some extenuating circumstances where FHA will allow for this.

To be complete, honest and upfront - you would need to discuss this matter with your loan officer. The mortgage loan application you sign at closing will need to be correct and accurate.

There may be some ways to handle this issue, you just need to discuss everything with your loan officer.

It's best to have a realtor to send you listings as they are listed on our multiple listing service by setting you up to receive the listings as they appear, so you don't have to keep coming back to hunt for them. If you have not found the home you want in Lewisburg, and you are still looking, please contact me at 901-461-8752 and I will be glad to do that for you. ... more

Wendy Lucas answered:
Clearly need to make the purchase contract subject to the lease and possession subject to the lease. Landlord/Owner needs to transfer any and all funds held pursuant to the lease to the Buyer at closing. The lease also needs to be assigned. Sometimes you can negotiate with a tenant to move out before the lease terminates. This may cost some money, but may be worth it to the buyer and seller. Also, get your owner/seller to incentivise the tenant tenant to cooperate with showings by offering a couple of hundred dollars if the tenant cooperates by allowing showings, keeping the place neat and clean and if a prospects asks them questions to be professional and positive. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
As the other answers note, it doesn't appear that the house is listed for rent. However, if that's the house you really want to rent, contact a Realtor and have him/her contact the listing agent and inquire about the possibility of renting the property. There are plenty of houses sitting vacant and for sale that the owners would be willing to rent out. Sure, they'd prefer to sell (that's why it's listed for sale, not rent). But some--quite a few, actually--will be willing to rent.

Good luck.
