James L. Smith answered:
I advise you as the seller to ask for proof of funds or a pre-approval letter from the buyer. After you receive the documentation, verify the account is current and the funds in the statement are correct whether with the lender or a financial institution. This will show that the buyer is able and willing to finance or pay cash for the property. If you want another step of security; you may want to increase the amount of Earnest Money deposited by the buyer. The average amount when financing a property is 1 to 3% of the sale price. If it is a cash deal, many sellera will ask as much as 10% in Earnest money in order that the buyer does not back out of the deal with ease. ... more

Generally, I have my clients become financial approved by a Mortgage company or local Credit Union. The financial institution will provide you with a pre-approval letter which will give you a maximum price range. This will enable you to know the price range in which to search for a home...saving time and energy for both you and your agent. Most sellers will want to see either a pre-qualification or approval letter from the buyer before accepting an offer. ... more

Yes! A large lot size and an amenity such as a corner lot adds value to your property. All appraisers approach the valuation process differently due to unique market to market conditions but, the fact that you are located on a corner lot will add value to your property and your Realtor should price the property accordingly. ... more

Each apartment community or landlord is different. In most cases, when lease from a complex, the management will be responsible for the water and sewer, leaving you with electricity or any other utilities you may require. When leasing from a landlord, normally they will not cover any of your utilities and you are responsible for water, sewer, electricity, etc... ... more

James L. Smith answered:
I would advise you to consult a Mortgage professional in your market. A state licensed loan officer at a local but, nationally recognized mortgage company will be able to refinance you into a more suitable loan product preferably a 15 or 30 fixed rate. This way you do not have to deal with this situation of rising interest rates again. If there is not a way to refinance you immediately, the mortgage professional should give you a financial plan to reach that place of transition. ... more

James L. Smith answered:
The neighborhood is made up of a higher than normal number of rental properties in the community. As a buyer, this may not be as appealing to other sub-markets in the area that may have a higher percentage of home owners in the community. Neighborhoods can vary from one community to the next. I believe it is extremely important to view each community you might be interested in purchasing, both during the day and at night, if at all possible. A Realtor will be of great assistance if they are fimilar and/or have worked in the market in which you are considering. The Realtor will not only have personal experience but, third party information at their fingertips. ... more
