As some have already answered this question, when buying VA patience is the name of the game. Many times sellers as well as other agents would rather sell a property other than to a VA buyer because there are certain fees that the Vet can not pay for so those fees are passed on to the seller. The property also must meet rigid VA requirements. Again, sellers would rather sell to someone who is using a non VA type of loan. Being a Vet myself, I work hard to assist other Vets in purchasing a home guiding them through the difficulties facing them. For more information you can contact me or visit my website: ... more

Not all agents are created the same. When selecting a real estate professional you may want to determine how long they have been working in the real estate business, what geographical areas are they familiar with, how many homes have they sold in the past 90 days, are they full or part time, will they be searching daily for properties for you or will you have to do the searching. These are just a few questions you should ask. For more information I invite you to visit: ... more

Hi Ell,

If you can give me some more information about the specific property, I can see what I can find out. Having worked to remove federal tax liens on a title to a property I was selling, I gained invaluable experience with this particular type of problem, and have a smart team of other professionals I can rely on for answers. Give me a call when you have a moment to share some details about the house.

Most MLS' have a field to capture school info - but I always recommend that you check for yourself. The best way to do this is by calling the school district and connect with the transportation dept. Those are the folks that can provide the definitive answer to the question - where do you deliver a child from a particular address....

Good luck and best.

Make your interest known to your landlord, you may get a leg up since you have an existing relationship. Of course, your ability to buy will be the driver, so talk with a reputable lender asap. Be very clear and complete about your financial situation and he/she will advise you on your readiness to buy, your budget and be able to provide you the necessary pre-approval which you will need to include with any offer.

Good luck,

You need to contage a Mortgage lender and get a loan pre approval letter. This could take 2 days or it could take 2 weeks. Then you will have to wait for the mortgage company to issue a Mortgage committment. This could take weeks. Based on my 12 years in the field, I would urge you to first concentrate on finding a reliable mortgage company and keep on top of them as they process your loan application. Even if you have a good credit score, mortgage companyies ofter require tons of data and tons of proof that you will qualify. Believe me, I have been there and I have seen it all.

My advise is to first find a good , experienced , full time real estate agent and discuss every aspect of obtaining a mortgage and buying a home. They should provide extensive consultation in these matters without charge and without pushing you or pressuring you into action. Also, ask the agent to recommmend 2 or 4 mortgage Brokers who he/she has used successfully in the past..

I wish you the best of luck in finding your dream home.

Hi Lisa,
It's a bank foreclosure, owned by Bank of America. Even though the sign went up, it may be a while before it actually goes on the market. Many banks are releasing thier foreclosed properties very slowly. You can keep an eye on the multiple listing yourself at Everything that goes up for sale in the multiple listing service is on that website. Have you used it before?

"If it sounds too good to be true, it is."

I looked up some of the properties listed on the website that are supposedly right here in Tallahassee where I live.

Those listings are completely bogus.

A home for only $6000 in a neighborhood where homes are selling for $200K even in this down market?
People would be standing on top of each other to buy it - the house would be sold in 5 minutes.

Do an Internet Search using the words: scam
for posts from people who are getting billed $39 per month from this company; they cannot get the billing to stop.

Best wishes to you,

Ken Ernst answered:
Hi Lisa,
The home is pending sale and was offered at $142,900. I'm unable to tell you what it sold for as that information cannot be disclosed till the sale is completed.
If you would like help in locating a similar property please give me a call. If you are not already working with an agent, I would be happy to help you.
Thank you for your question,
