You agent would need to have a paid subscription to Trulia to be able to make more advance changes like that.

Good luck,

Dan's right. You have to be clear about your expectations and concerns. The seller will always choose the least expensive and easiest option. Demand more!

Thanks for your question. There are no official loan amount limits with USDA. USDA like most mortgage programs have debt to income ratio limits, and home buyers qualify based on this. Read more about this subject in the web reference link below.

Yes scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, so the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.

Brad Davis answered:
The homes in The Commons have been selling pretty well lately. There are currently seven homes available for sale and 3 of those homes have been listed for 50 days or less. All of these homes are priced between $299k and $375k. The Commons is a great neighborhood of starter homes/entry level homes on St. Simons. The lots are usually about .2 acre in size and the homes are either 3/2 or 4/3 and some of them have additional bonus rooms, offices and pools in the back yard. The neighborhood itself is a great place for kids. There are two community playgrounds and it is located close to an elementary school and several churches. I would definitely suggest this area if you are looking for investment properties to hold onto for a couple of years and flip when the market really starts coming back around. We have already picked up a little (about 4%), but we are just at the very start of the pick-up period.

Brad Davis answered:
Of course you can make an offer on just the home, requesting for the seller to remove the furniture. If you are financing the home, one the sales contract, you want to make sure that it does not mention that the home is being sold furnished. If it says in the contract that the home is being sold furnished, it will create a problem with obtaining financing, because the underwriter/financer will want to assign a value to the furnishings and will want to subtract that value out of the purchase price and only finance the value of the home, not the value of the home and furnishings. If you do want to purchase a home furnished, a separate 'Bill-of-Sale' will need to be filled out. This is an agreement between the buyer and seller to transfer possession of furnishings for a stated cost, which could be $0.00. Let me know if you have any further questions about this.
