There are programs that offer down payment assistance. after a short sale there are waiting periods though. 7 years for a conventional loan, 3 years for an FHA loan, and 2 years for a VA loan. All these time lines are based on the date the property was transferred to the new owner (typically the date sold). I would be more than happy to go over things with you and see how i can assist you in getting into a home. Feel free to reach out to me. ... more

Of course you can.

However, it would be very beneficial to you to understand HOW investors evaluate the real estate they purchase. It is good that you are willing to take LESS.

For a home not in distress and a situation that is not urgent, this action would rarely be considered the most prudent for you and those important to you.

You have many more, beneficial options from which to choose.
There must be more to this story.

Hello Richard,

Most Realtors will offer a free consultation to determine value. Based upon your zip code of 80110 I would guess that your house is close to the redevelopment of Belmar, so finding comps should not be difficult. I would assume there are other similar property's that could be used as comps even if they are a little further from your current home and it should not be terrible difficult to establish a value. I would also advise that you interview more then 1 Realtor for listing your home since there is a lot more that goes into selling a property that is unique like yours sounds to be then just price and how much different Realtors may charge you. I hope this helps!
