Hi, you can get a private money loan, from someone like myself who loans their own money. There are a couple of challenges.

First, most private lenders want a lot of protection, and a much higher return. In my area, Sacramento, most private lenders get 8% to 10% for loans, with borrowers putting down 25% to 30%. I wouldn't risk my money for anything less.

Now, let's say you have a big downpayment, and you are willing to pay a higher rate until you can later refinance. You may still have a problem, because of the new TRID rules. You can Google TRID... it stands for TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure. TRID is making it far more difficult for private investors to loan money to individuals, because some of the exemptions are now taken away. For example, private investors used to be able to loan under short-term "temporary" financing or "bridge" loans and be exempt from TILA and RESPA, however, under TRID those exemptions are now gone. You do still have the "Business Purpose" exemption, but this would not apply to you, if you were buying a primary residence.

Here is my advice... FHA will consider a borrower in Chapter-13, if they have been making all payments on time for at least 12 months. You must also meet the other qualifying criteria, like income, debt ratios etc... FHA is a 3.5% downpayment with great rates :-) I hope that helps!

I relocated to Mocksville NC from Northern Va in 2006 with 4 children ages 15, 13, 11 and 6. Of course it was an adjustment but in the end the best thing we ever did. The moment we moved, we found a great youth group for our kids to get to know local kids and we immediately got involved with the local sports in our county. It took no time at all for my kids to make new friends and quickly learn to love their new home as much as the one they left. We kept in touch with their friends often and still do. Your kids will do great! Get involved in the community as soon as you can. I hope this helps~Lori Carden RE?MAX Preferred Properties, Clemmons NC ... more

Wendy Butler answered:
Tanglewood Farms is a large complex that typically does have multiple units on the market at a time. There are a fair number of rentals in the complex so that may possibly be a factor, and condo sales have been slower compared to single family homes in the past few years. Make sure your agent does their research and thoroughly review the Homeowner Association documents and financials to make sure you feel comfortable with the financial condition of the HOA. Ask lots and lots of questions! If you're not working with an agent and need some local guidance, please let me know as I'd be happy to help. Good luck! ... more

Daniel Fisher answered:
Good evening, Jim.
It is likely that the asset manager has an appraisal that they believe justifies the $760k price. 20% below list is a good starting offer, but it is unlikely that you get it at that price. The asset managers often have guidelines that they follow for pricing and price reductions. And today's market is changing. Inventory is down and prices are coming back up. At this price, getting an appraisers opinion of value may be worth the few hundred $ it would cost. Before I did anything, though, I would make sure that the county has issued the certificate of occupancy and that there are no outstanding permit issues. If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. If you appreciate this answer, please give it a thumbs up, or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

I would also like to respond to the propane/septic questions. There are plenty of fine homes in Clemmons that have public sewer and water. As far as propane goes, I have 3 friends who use propane and hate it due to the cost of propane. My pool was heated with propane and my huge tank was underground. The cost didn't bother me but then again I was not heating a home. Again. good luck. ... more

It is a great neighborhood. Many of the residents were/are young doctors and have moved in/out with the job market. Several others are in top executive positions which has caused some job mobility in this economy. Talk to people who live there. I would buy there tomorrow if I could afford it! ... more

Don Tepper answered:
Good answers, especially from Jeanne. The fact that you've had a moderate number of showings suggests that your price isn't too far off. If you were seriously overpriced, buyers wouldn't even spend their time looking at your property. So, you're probably in the general ballpark. Still, have your Realtor run a new CMA on your property.

As far as location--sure, that's important. But people also take that into consideration when deciding whether to view a property. And I've seen plenty of times when people have scheduled a viewing, drive through the neighborhood, decide it's not for them, and then drive off without even stopping. The fact that you've had 20+ showings indicates that there's a reasonable awareness of your location (whether that's good or bad) and that people are still willing to look at your home.

That leaves condition, or appearance. Remember: They looked at your home because it seemed at least generally in the right price range. Location isn't a terrible turn-off for those who viewed it. That leaves appearance. They got there, looked at your home, and decided that there was a better combination of price, location, and condition/appearance somewhere else. And very often, at that point, it's appearance.

Consider having your home staged. At least bring in a home stager and get a report from him/her. It'll cost you a bit of money (not much), and you'll get a critical, independent evaluation of how your home shows. It'll be well worth the investment.

Hope that helps.

Dave Griswold/ Lisa Payne-Griswold answered:
Usually it means their in charge of the selling of the home they are trusted to sell or trustee. Generally the property was inheirited or passed to them in some manner, there maybe others also on the deed or in the will but if only one person is named they could be the only one. Often times they are the one designated to handle the property.
all the best
