I have a question. Is it a bad sign if it takes the underwriters 2 or 3 days to let you know if your loan is approved or not after you submit your conditions?

The rent would be considered income. If your boss is paying your rent in lieu of a paycheck whether it is a full paycheck or not the rent is considered income. When you apply for a loan make sure that you explain this to your lender. The lender may ask you to have your employer provide either a 1099 or official company letter detailing how much rent he pays as a substitute for wages and how much he actual pays you in wages. ... more

I am not a realtor or a cop so I can only say what I know about a place from observation and reading. I just saw your question and as I am also in the market to buy in Capitol Heights and thought I should give you some food for thought.

I do not know how well you follow the news headlines or read your local newspaper but Capitol Heights was in the news two days (Feb23) ago for a triple homicide. The incident was in the 5200 block of Marlboro Pike and you can read the details in the Washington Times here: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/23/pg-police-id-victims-capitol-heights-triple-homici/
This is not to say that all of Capitol Heights is like this, this is only one incident in one place in Capitol Heights. It just suggests, you should take a closer look and pay attention to where in Capitol Heights you settle.

I don't recommend driving around random neighborhoods if you are not sure about the safety of the neighborhood. I would suggest first getting an idea of the safety level from police reports and neighborhood guides like neighborhood scout(most info is free). Then perhaps go with someone to check it out if you feel comfortable.

It probably has been stated but when you sign with an agent, he/she will provide you all of the information that you will require to purchase a home. You can do your own research, get advice from friends and family but know that your situation is unique to you and cannot be exactly as someone else's experience. Trust your agent, he/she.....me will give you outstanding service to help you find the home specific to your needs. Call me if you have not engaged an agent, it would be good to talk to you to determine what your needs are. ... more

The Roskelly Team answered:
Hi Tory,

Your agreement with the mortgage company gives the terms of payment. If you are three months behind and have not negotiated a payment arrangement with the bank they should be within their right to bring foreclosure proceedings.

You could always contact an attorney for a list of options. But payment (or negotiation of a payment scheduled) is the only surefire way I know of to stop this process.

Hi Regina,

There is actually a search function here on Trulia where you can "find an agent" on line that specializes in your area. Making a general inquiry like this is probably not the best way to find the most qualified person.

Hello: Aaron Brown, SELLSTATE Dominion Realty, abrown2362@aol.com, 202-327-1385, www.aaronbrown-realtor.com

Answer:
Short Sales:
The time it takes a short sale to close is specific to each deal. I have had some unbelievable experiences where closing too 28 days and I have had some equally unbelievable experiences where a closing to 12 months. As the buyer and the buyers's agent, it really tests your paitience and commitment to the purchase. As the seller and listing agent, what can go wrong does go wrong and every now and then a deal closes perfectly.

With short sales, for the most part, the banks are in control, they require specific information from the seller just to approve the short sale and this is a back and forth process that does reap rewards for all parties involved.

Answer:
Interest Rate:

No real answer for that without a complete profile of you, your finances, work history, salary and the loan amount.

As your realtor, I will give you the outstanding professional and customer service that you deserve. You should call or e-mail me today. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks,

Hello Fungirl: Aaron Brown, SELLSTATE Dominion Realty, abrown2362@aol.com, 202-327-1385, www.aaronbrown-realtor.com

Answer:
Each Homeowners Association is run independently either by the neighbors in the neighborhood or a management company. You will have to contact the actual Homeowners Association and request a breakdown or index of their services and fees associated with that particular development to get an accurate list. As your realtor I would get that information for you from the listing agent.

Homeowners Association (HOA) fees are funds that are collected from homeowners in a condominium complex to obtain the income needed to pay (typically) for:

master insurance
exterior and interior (as appropriate) maintenance
landscaping
water
sewer
garbage costs.

HOA fees are typically paid monthly and run on average from $100-$700 per month – these are indeed estimates, and can vary depending on many factors (especially if there are higher-end amenities being provided via the HOA fees such as a concierge, pool, fitness center, or valet). Fees are normally set by the HOA's board of directors and adjusted annually – oftentimes, an HOA board of directors is simply all the homeowners in a complex or building, if it is small, or if there are a large number of owners, the board of directors is typically elected by all homeowners. Any excess HOA fees that exist after paying for pertinent services as described above are stored in an account and called reserve funds.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
Aaron Brown

Hello Khairston30,


As already noted this program ended however, your closing cost might give you some tax deductions but you will need to consult with CPA.
