Hi Kifle21negash,

The best way to know for sure is to contact a mortgage professional. There are many factors to consider, such as credit score, credit history, purchase price, property type, occupancy, down payment, debt-to-income ratio, etc.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your options.

Pay for a Home Inspection, use a quality certified inspector, let your realtor know you want copper pipes, so that can become a search criteria of filler

Did you sign a Buyer's Representation Agreement with the first agent who showed you the property?

If the answer is YES, then you may be liable for 2 commissions. (Agent one has signed agreement-agent 2 may get the offer accepted but could forfeit her commission due to an enforceable B.R.E.)

The first may agent may claim procuring cause bu-t the agent who writes the accepted offer is the agent who collects the commission-Unless agent one can prove she indeed was the procuring cause.
It is legal to switch- but you may be liable for a commission if you signed an agreement with agent one.

We have a lender who will allow you to utilize your current residence's potential rental income as long as it has 30% equity. This lender will require an appraisal of your departing residence to ascertain equity position.
If you do not have the equity position, this lender will be like all the rest, qualify you at both payments.
As long as you have been making your payments on time and you can qualify for both payments, you will be able to finance the new home on conventional financing.
The lender will ask you to explain your reason for the move.
Your area is one of the markets that have rapid marketing times for homes.
A make sense explanation would be that you want to purchase in a particular area and do not want to have to write a contingent contract.
Your intent is to sell your property, which should happen quickly, but if it doesn't you are prepared to offer it as a rental.
Maybe I am missing something in your question, but it makes sense to me in the Silicon Valley. :)

Surprisingly Evergreen is getting a lot more interest and some of the schools are comparable not only to Moreland, but to Los Gatos and Saratoga.

Cambrian and West San Jose still leads the pack. It truly about location. Jobs tend to be further north and those neighborhoods closes are in more demand. Prices are reflected by the buyers who can afford and are willing to pay, and then the schools scores follow suit.

Pretty simple when you look at it this way.

Visit both areas observe as if you were your own children. Check your wallet and budget. You can only have so few choices in homes or where you want your children to grow up...

Most of the highly competitive schools are over crowded. Teachers really have little time spend especially on individual attention/needs.

If the parents are preoccupied with long hours at work, then after school day care is just as important. Parenting or how to bring up children and learn good habits are more important than attending award winning schools. You have not mentioned going to the library watching children doing home work or leisure reading. To many that may be more important than attending a good school and a good park.

Hi Susan,
Yes, it is possible that some areas are at or very near the bottom. The evidence of this won't be found in statistics, which only report the past, but in experiences such as yours. There are many examples of multiple offers these days. This doesn't mean that boom times have returned, but that there is a great deal of demand for the many great bargains that are available today.
Banks, after years of being foolish, are being extremely cautious these days. Hopefully you can get the seller to accept the appraised price or possibly get the bank to review and adjust the appraisal so that you can get the home you want.
Good luck,
