Welcome home and thank you for your service! All you have to do is meet with a buyers agent that can sit down and guide you through the process. The very first step will be to get pre approved for a mortgage. If you need a referral for a reputable mortgage broker I would be happy to provide one. Once you have an idea what a bank will lend you then you can formulate a plan with your agent.

I'm thinking you will probably be getting a VA loan so your agent should be well versed in that process. Have a great day!

Hi, Kitchens and bathrooms always bring the biggest return. Be careful how much money you actually invest into the home as you may not see a return if the market doesn't justify a higher price for you. This will all depend on how much you paid for the home, when you plan to sell, and what the market is like at that time.

A deck extension may not be the best investment. Curb appeal is crucial because people judge your home by what they see on the outside. You might consider having an agent guiding you with market data and professional advice, we would need to see the home though.

Have a great day!

Are you looking for a home with owner financing? Typically these types of arrangements benefit the seller and are a short term option.

Late payments definitely hurt your credit score and account for a 1/3 of what makes up your credit score. The best thing you can do is contact your lender sooner rather then later so they can work with you. Many people wait and wait, not a good idea. A short sale has less of a negative effect on your credit then a foreclosure does but you have to prove a valid hardship. Typically condo dues that are in arrears are due at the closing so the bank would most likely have to pay if you don't have the money.

I hope this works out for you!

Hi Sue - Lot size is a required field in the Maine Multiple Listing Service. The lot size for a condo generally, but not always, refers to the lot size of the entire condo association. It is fairly common for brick to be on the front side only, with sides and rear a different siding. ... more
