Annette Lawrence answered:
There are options.
The options available to you is based on the choices you made.

The documents the lender or broker presented to you will reveal the buyer is responsible for paying for the appraisal and the home inspection.

What you should do, if you are using the lender recommended by your REALTOR, is discuss your options with your REALTOR. Many things can happen in six months. I trust you left all your options in place.

By the way, are you using an IRB student loan repayment plan?

The best way is to get a little more information on your house. The address,size,bedrooms etc.. So a realtor can do a market analysis on what has sold nearby.

Good morning jeanamarie,

Most Lenders today require a minimum credit score of 640 to qualify for financing. You might be able to take some actions that could improve your scores. Your best course of action is to meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get Prequalified. Your Mortgage Banker will review your entire qualifications picture---Income, Assets, and Credit---and guide you as to what programs you're qualified for. If you're not qualified today due to credit, your Mortgage Banker can advise you on the proper course of action to improve your credit, whether that's in the long-term or the short-term.

I would check weekly with your local realestate companies. The bank will assign the company that will list the property. There is a chance it could be listed by a company not from the area. If you call weekly on the house someone can at least check to see if its on the market yet. ... more

Brian Miller answered:
First, you will want to go to your credit union, mortgage company or bank to get pre-approved for a home loan. By becoming pre-approved before starting your home search you will know how much you can spend. Now you can focus on those homes in your price range. Call a Realtor that will assist and represent you in your home buying process. ... more

You can call any Realtor. It does not have to be the listing agent.

Did you have a question about that or are you just posting that information? If you are not working with an agent all ready, you may want to consider working with one. They will be able to list your property on the MLS and multiple other sites, to get you the maximum exposure.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks and Good Luck !!

Anna is right, 620-640 FICO score seems to be about the minimum to get a decent rate without paying up front costs for a mortgage. Clik on the link below and you can get a nice description from a local mortgage broker about what credit scores mean. ... more

Another option is to negotiate one for your next purchase. Typically, these kinds of deals aren't found via the MLS.

Since no link is visible and no address given, you may wish to ask your question again so that it can be answered accordingly--in the meantime, any local agent can help you--contact any realty office and inquire, or check with the town's tax assessor's office. ... more

This is something that happens all the time. Granted things need to happen as they are planned but this is a fairly common event.

I like your post, straight and to the point. I am not an agent in your area, however I am licensed throughout the whole state of Michigan. Would you like me to refer you to another top agent who works in your requested area?

Talk to you soon
