Chakri asked:
is there a way to find information on local contractors and builders to build an affordable house on a lot or buy a land and sub-divide it to build a house ?

This is home inspection issue and attorney has nothing to do with it (if you use both of them). If the agent still won't do it, contact his/her broker and complain about it. If it still does not work, warn your agent that the home can't pass home inspection and the this would be ground to cancel the purchase agreement. Then you are free to find another buyer's agent and re-do the purchase contract.

I know this is a little extreme, but agent should do agent's job. This is how we agents get paid.

Also, if you know that the pool has been neglected for some time, then it is reasonable to have the pool re-opened for inspection. There may be more problem with the pool that requires attention.

Hi Ted, you've got a good down payment amount there - FHA loans allow a down payment as low as 5% so you are in good shape. Income qualification will be the next criteria - for mortgage, condo monthly maintenance and taxes. Your best bet is to talk this over with a reputable mortgage rep - if you'd like a suggestion, I'd be happy to provide the name of a good one.

What an exciting time for you!
