What nearby city do you have in mind? I would suggest that you drive around the nearby city and determine whether you like it or not. Also what is your budget? You should always look in the area/city in your budget.

I hope this helps!

That will totally depend on the individual property. You don't have to pay your buyer's agent, HUD has commission structures in place to take care of your agent. If you have any further questions, I would be happy to help you.

Hi Terry:

The only site I know of that does estimate for property value is Every time I get a question like this, I go to Zillow to get an estimate on my own home, and it is still not accurate as of today.

I think the reason why is because Zillow does use the most recent sales around the neighborhood for a home and try to estimate the value of the house. The only problem is that it takes the hard facts (# BD/BA, SF, acreage, etc) but does not account for upgrades, views, location (open space, hillside, etc), unique characteristics (horse property, cul de sac, office/loft vs. bedrooms, etc); all these can make a big difference on the price of the home.

So, zillow might work for cookie cutter homes in a cookie cutter development, but will have a difficult time coming up with values for homes that can be quite different from each other within a neighborhood. Those will need human interpretation for a more accurate value.

Prices are just starting points for negotiation. In strong markets many times the asking price may be out bid when there are several people interested in the home, in a bad market it is possible to negotiate a lower price depending on how desperate the owner is willing to sell. ... more

You just might qualify for a mortgage.
Contact your bank and see if they will pre-approve you for a mortgage. If they will, you can buy the home you really like :).
