Assuming you have a job you probably can. Loans will only affect your debt to income ratio. If they are deferred and you don't currently have a monthly payment they may not affect you at all. Contact me and I would be happy to give you some lender recommendations to call to find out how much home you would qualify for. ... more

It depends.if you are able to keep your home in "show shape" while living in it that's great but if you've got kids, pets etc and lots of stuff it would probably show much better vacant. Discuss this with your Realtor and get their opinion. ... more

Hope,

Further to Dan's comments, there are various incentives that new home builders like Perry Homes and DR Horton offer for Realtor's to pass along such as granite upgrades, etc. However, there are also financial incentives such as interest rates, origination costs and insurance discounts that home builders often have. This is especially true when working with larger builders like DR Horton (builds more homes than anyone else in the US and is Texas based). I've seen some gorgeous new communities in NW Houston with mature trees and unique elevations that feel like well established neighborhoods already......and with the perks of new construction. As a Realtor, I can negotiate on your behalf at the model homes, design center and all the way to closing. Let me know if you would like more information or personal assistance with your new home purchase. ... more

Hi Kaylan,

Yes, it is possible. Lenders will consider your payment history on non-traditional credit such as a cell phone bill, utilities, insurance, etc.

The only way to confidently know what you will qualify for is to consult with a Mortgage Professional for a full review of your credit, income, assets, and overall objectives.

Best wishes,

Annette Lawrence answered:
There are options available to obtain financing with no down payment such as VA or USDA backed mortgages.

However, such options are not looked upon favorably by home sellers. The residual penalty for a failed transaction is taken seriously by the agent and home owner.

There are ways to make such offer more competitive.
Time to pick up the phone and call a REALTOR to discuss your situation, your options and get a referral to a lender who has SOLUTIONS!

Best of Success,

It depends on the builder's features and amenities. Also the lender will order an appraisal on the property to be sure it appraises for the amount on the purchase contract.

Tommy Burris answered:
Hard to say.
Lots of factors.
Lots of foliage around the pool that falls in will kill chlorine.
Lots of 'bathers' in the pool kill the chlorine.
Add lots of skin care products and the chlorine is sapped fast.
.
I have a lot of foliage and spend about $200 per year on chemicals.
Electricity? I have no clue.

I clean it myself.
I maintain myself.
But things break..... So I would add it all up to $100 per month-ish on the high side.
Much lower if you have a good healthy pool with newer equipment.
$50/month would be the low side.

Mariangel Wilkinson answered:
Hi Amanda,
Median Market time for the Spring/Klein area is generally about 60 to 90 days. Obviously there are homes that take a lot longer and some that sell in a week or two. If the house is priced right and in good condition and staged well with no obvious problems, ie, super busy street etc. then one should expect good activity in a week or two with a potential sale in less than 90 days. If not, something might be wrong and the listing agent and the seller should have a serious review of the home and the market. ... more

Amanda Nicodemus answered:
Section 8 rental homes are usually listed thru a real estate broker. The best way to search is directly from the Houston Association of Realtor's website.

Also, local agents may be able to persuade property owners to accept section 8, since they can receive their rent on a timely basis.

Working with an agent may help you find a rental home quicker.

The deception to the community is already in place and you are just going along because it benefits you

The terms are used, mixed around, etc so as to "confuse" any debate

"Politicians" being for it means little as most of them go along to get along

With the Feds involved THAT MEANS THAT FORCE IS BEING USED, COVERTLY AT FIRST, BUT AT THE READY IF NECESSARY

SO WHEN YOU ALLOW PEOPLE TO LIVE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD THAT THEY HAVE NOT earned their way into OR MORE APPROPIATELY, BEEN ALLOWED TO "ROBIN HOOD" THEIR WAY INTO
NOTHING GOOD WILL EVER COME FROM IT

Its the way the Universe works,,,, leftist guilt aside
