Mary asked:
We heard the rates are hovering around 3.75% for Vets right now! Is this true? We will be in our first home for two years this August and wanted to know if it's worth it to refinance…

In Texas, the buyer loses the option to terminate the contract under the option contingency if they don't deliver the option fee within three days of the contract execution date. However, there could be other contingencies in the contract they could use to terminate. You really should consult with your agent or an attorney. ... more

Hello Becky,

It's been awhile since I've heard from you and I was waiting for a call back in regards to your on going attempts of selling your existing estate. Have you decided on what route you were going to take. I already have an excellent marketing plan in mind for you that I'm confident will get your estate sold. Could you contact me once again when you get this. Thank you.

PS. Right now I feel as though you're losing out of a terrific market and I would like to help you take advantage of it in every which way while rates are still low and buyers are abundant. Thanks again.

It sounds as though you've a challenging road ahead of you considering you would violate many city ordnances. In many cases you will need a 5 bed and up which in that price range will be extremely hard to find.

I agree with Rick I would start looking at the notion of possibly purchasing. I believe we all lose a great deal of understanding by attempting to communicate online, if you have any further question feel free to call me directly. Thank you.

Right now the market is in an upswing so it is a great time to sell. That said, if you are willing to be a landlord you may have a great opportunity to make additional income from this existing home. This question really comes down to you and where you feel the most comfortable. Being a landlord can be stressful as you still need to maintain the home, manage tenants, and collect rents. Some people do not mind doing this, others see it as a huge risk. There are good and bad parts to renting out a property but really it comes down to what you are comfortable with. You also need to speak with a mortgage lender to see how owning the investment property will affect you with the purchase of a new home. The debt you owe on the investment property will be counted and not all of the rent will be counted as income when it comes to qualifying. Also, depending on the type of financing you currently have it may prevent you from using as inexpensive a form of financing this time around. As you can see this puts a lot of balls into play. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
