It's hard to give an opinion as we don't know your background or any details.

This would depend upon a number of factors, including your score and what is actually "on" your credit. Even if you are buying from a friend, you will still need to qualify for a home-loan if not paying cash.

FYI...the seller pays commission in the state of TX and doesn't cost you anything for buyer-representation. ESPECIALLY if you are buying "from a friend" you will want to make sure you have someone in your corner to protect your rights and negotiate for you.

I hope you have since purchased the home that you want and it was a good experience for you. If anyone else finds themselves in this situation PLEASE contact me! :) I would love to help guide you through the process (it won't cost you a dime ((for representation)). Regardless of whether you are buying from a friend or a stranger, this is the biggest investment most people make in a lifetime. Better safe than sorry.

This sounds shady at best. If you are selling, why would the buyer's lender want to look at "your" account??

I hope you haven't sent them anything. What has your Realtor advised?

You may want to work with a realtor and explain your situation. Ultimately it will depend on the landlord.

Good luck!

How to write a successful Short Sale offer:

In a short sale, the short sale lender is approving the short sale for both the buyer and the seller. The approval would come with your name on it and is not transferable.

So, the short sale lenders ask that the buyer identify themselves as a real person who has the money and qualifications to close, before committing the Banks considerable time and resources to approve the short sale for you.

It is a short sale requirement that you as the potential buyer prove that you have to capacity to close.

I am a frequent keynote speaker on the subject of short sales, for Chase, Wells Fargo, AAREA, NAHREB, CDPE. I am also published on the subject of short sales through I actively sell short sales throughout Southern California and have never lost a home to Foreclosure.

When representing a buyer on a short sale, I know the documents that a short sale lender will require in order to approve the sale, and I include a really nice package for the listing agent to submit to the Seller as part of the offer. This strategy results in a higher success rate on getting the offer approved for short sale submittal, and saves valuable time in getting the short sale submitted and approved. Most short sale lenders will ask that this information be updated throughout the course of the short sale.

If I might ask, what is your concern?

Most of my clients line through a few of the account numbers to protect themselves.

Generally, and experienced agent will write the offer as clean as possible, and a really good agent will counter the offer before submitting it to the Bank.

This simple strategy can save you tens of thousands of dollars in the purchase of your new home!

Here is a handy link on my website that will allow you to look directly at school ratings, community information and parent-input. Many parents opt for private school in Dallas, if not in the award-winning, exemplary-rated HIghland Park ISD.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance; I am a parent of two and can definitely understand wanting an exemplary-rated school.

Have you sold this? I have someone looking in this area and we have exhausted all available inventory and just "waiting" for others to come up...
Please send me details if by some odd chance, you have not yet sold this condo! :)

Well, 75206 and 75204 were previously slow markets. The drop in home sales this year is due to the total lack of inventory, There are fewer homes for sale, fewer are sold.

How is it going? Did you decide to remodel or leave as is. Prices are up about 10% year over year and people are scouting for houses. Either way I think you can't go wrong.

You can get an idea of what is for sale at the link below.

Would love to see your house and give you our ideas if you still need to move.
