95% is available as long as your loan amount stays below 1mil. Also your credit must be above 700. There are single loan options with no pmi, and of course piggyback combos. In most cases the combo loan makes better sense. Please contact us if we can assist.

I do not charge any "transactions fees" here and there are many that do. There are plenty of costs to selling a house, but additional fees to the realtor to cover their advertising is not something I do. Call me and lets talk about selling your house.

Hi,

It's not often that a home is a lease to own. BUT, what I can do is set you up with a lender who will work with you and figure out what your options are. Lease to own is not the safest bet when it comes to your money.

Please contact me and let's look at your options. The VA loan requires NO money down, did you know that?

Annette Lawrence answered:
Nearly EVERYONE prefers a 'never lived in before' home. (+$40,000)
Most builder grade accessories have a 10 year life expectancy. A five year old home is at half life. (-$5,000) to (-$25,000) based on product and number of items (pool, spa, materials, etc) and whether the house was lived in hard.

All of this is highly deceptive and completely not actionable by the typical consumer who seeks a simplistic answer. It is simply not that easy.

What you need is to have your REALTOR complete a CIS Score of the re-sale home.
Examples in my signature links.

Best of success,

Rob Guilloz answered:
In Michigan, licensing law does not require a builder to offer a warranty. However, the licensing law does provide for a complaint period of 18 months, during which time a homeowner may file a complaint with the State. Most builders include language in their purchase agreements defining the warranty coverage and how to file warranty claims. One-year warranties are common, but structural elements may be covered for up to ten years. ... more

Travis Reed answered:
In San Antonio, TX. Alot of people like to see stainless steel appliances with updated kitchens and bathrooms. Attached garages are a plus but most homes have them here, if built after 1985, garage doors openers are important. Flooring, I am finding more people looking and want wood floors in the main living areas, carpet is still ok in the bedrooms.

Make sure the home is kept up real will and touched up
