I would suggest that you ask your realtor about making an offer and your lender about the loan. What's the comps for the area? Has the sale price reflect the repair for the foundation? Is this home bank owned? How do you know that the foundation needs repair? Did the seller indicate that or did you see it yourself?

There are variables that you'll need to take into consideration before making offer on a home so it's best that you hire a realtor to assist you. I hope this makes sense!

I cannot think of a better online program to start with than Amitree. Give it a try. I sign my buyers up because it details where they are in the buying process, the likelihood of them being approved or if they have areas to work in.

However, your question is not for me to talk about how I help clients. Did I mention the service is FREE? Laverne, you can answer a few short questions and receive a detailed plan that outlines exactly what you need to do, each day, all the way through closing day. You will never question what needs to happen next or why.

Give it a try, I really think you will appreciate the program....and its free.

Hope this helps.

Kenneth is correct! The main thing to remember is to pick ONE Realtor to work with. Many times Prospective Renters talk to multiple agents that may appear on a FOR RENT/FOR LEASE sign in front of a home they may like.

What they may not realize is that any agent can show them any home listed on the Multiple Service Listing that is FOR RENT/LEASE! Therefore, once you pick an agent, stick with them until you find the home of your choice!

Thanks and Best of Luck.

First of all, it is not clear, if you are a realtor who helped a buyer to purchase a home for a FSBO. Or is this a consumer who dealt with a FSBO? Both are unclear. Since you purchase the home without a licensed realtor. You may run into many issues such as this one. (FSBO-For Sale By Owner)

Now that you are in this present condition and have not resolved any matters in regards to the home. It seems you may need to do research on the property at the Dallas County Appraisal Office and see who is listed as the owner of the house.

Title Company generally don't let you hang this long, had a licensed realtor was hired. You may want to contact the Title Company and find out what is going on with the house.

Unless there are issues on the house such as lien on the property or property may be in a probate court and there may be issues on the house and it will not sell. Or it can be anything that would not allow the house to obtain a clear title. A title search may help, but it would cost money to obtain it from the title company. A Quit claim deed may be issued by an attorney in an attempt to cure the cloud in the property, provided that is the delay. Consult an attorney.

Title Policy is the instrument that permits ownership of the home and generally, an Real Estate attorney may be consulted to seek your information further. Attorney may assist in clearing the cloud in the title.

Unless you have been scammed and have been defrauded by FSBO. Then consult a real estate attorney on your legal matter. Even short sale may take a long time at the title company but this is now year 2014. I have many unanswered questions on this matter. I hope you resolved your matter. Good luck.

If you were current on your other liabilities apart from Home, you should have no problems as long as you have a solid explanation. Otherwise, you may have to put down a large deposit.

Good Luck

As a first time home buyer you have the opportunity of buying your first home with as little as 3.5% down payment. First step would be to get yourself pre-approved from a loan officer. This will give you an idea of what price range properties you should be looking at. Interview a few Realtors and choose one who you think is a perfect match. ... more

You have a lot of different options. I have seen instances where people with less then perfect credit were able to secure financing based on Income. Your credit score is enough to secure you FHA financing. So, talk to a few good loan officers and they will be able to assist you. ... more
