Deborah Smith answered:
In selling you have closing costs and a possible contribution to the buyer for their closing costs. It is best to contact a realtor to run a market analysis for the area and than go from there. Renting out
your property would be based on how much rentals are going for in the area, vrs your expenses if
you have a mortgage payment, taxes, association fees, and possible additional expenses. Weigh
both and see which would be best for you.

Any home purchase is a good idea, whether you are in Hyde Park or West of Hyde Park, it is a good idea. If that is the home for your, purchase it and enjoy. Hyde Park has a lot of features such as walking distance to stores, restaurants, and novelty shops. ... more

Nicholas S Nelson answered:
Good Morning Blummy,

As Matt mentioned, there is the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) that is available and may not require appraisal, or condo questionnaire. Your current mortgage must be a Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae mortgage. There are other criteria for the HARP program, but if you qualify, it is the easiest way to get refinanced. Just be prepared to wait aproximately 60 days to get it done, as banks are taking that long or longer to get these refi's done.

Should you have other questions, please email or call me.

Good Luck,

Get yourself pre approved an let a profeesional tell you whatyour options are.
Contrary to popular belief, banks are lending. FHA loans can be obtained for as little as 3.5% down and Conventional loans can be obtained for as little as 5% down.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

It's not unusual, we've waited up to a month in some cases. Keep in mind that they have stock piles of REO's and only certain people have the authority to sign off, simply follow up with the listing agent.

Good luck!

I wouldn't worry too much about it being shown. If you have a fully executed contract they can't sell it to someone else unless you can't get your financing in time. Focus on getting your loan commitment. ... more
