Hello Nvonebbe, an agent like myself can set you up to receive the information via email. You should get set up to receive daily automatic emails for all the homes for sale that match your search criteria to study and consider.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance?

The purchase in Folsom start from 349k for 3bd 2.5ba condo and the single family homes start from 365k for 3bd 2ba home.

You may want to specify exactly what you are looking for in an agent. Your best bet is to interview a couple agents and see who has a marketing plan to sell your home, communicates openly and timely. ... more

I'm local and can help with this. 10% down is definitely something we can get done, sounds like you have a great credit score and low ratios. Let me know if you still need help with the jumbo loan. ... more

Though you're not providing the main details such as fico scores, your down payment amount or DTI, I'll address your question.

Regarding closing costs, if you're putting down 10% or more, the seller can provide you a credit up to 6% of the sales price, or $56,400...otherwise the limit is 3% of the price

Regarding getting additional funds, that's a gray area as this would be considered a 'hold-back', and not all hold backs will be allowed by the lender. And it's doubtful the work will be completed by the close of escrow.

Since it was last Apr you posted this question, you've most likely purchased your home already..

If not, then feel free to contact me if you're still looking for a home loan!

best, Jeff M

There really is no reason to delay. If they are within their contingency period, they are allowed to cancel and get their deposit back. This way you can get it back on the market asap and sell it to someome who is going t follow through. ... more

Don't buy an Elliott Home in Rancho Cordova. There are no CC&R's or HOA's and the city allows two story detached garages to be built by owners. The City of Rancho Cordova could care less about the quality of life in their neighborhoods and is creating the same blight in the new areas of RC just like what's around Folsom Blvd here. ... more

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
You can but the risk is getting your deposit back. I don't know the details of your cancellation but if the seller doesn't sign your deposit is held in escrow until everything is resolved. If you get into another contract and need that money you could be in trouble. The agent may think all is fine but you never really know what a seller is going to do after they talk to their friends, family, ect and decide they should get your deposit, right or wrong. ... more

You would have better luck with sites like craigslist if you are looking for just a room to rent.

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
A buyer can always come back after the close of escrow. They do need to prove you were aware of the issues and did not disclose. As an outsider I would have to question the home inspection. Usually they will find rat droppings or damage and it would be part of their report prior to closing. They need to prove you knew they were there. That goes the same for the hole in the cabinet. Not something a home inspection may see. Was it covered up and hidden by you? If not, it needs to be proved. The water shut off under the house may not of been a big deal to Her but her husband may not have liked it. Is it up to code or did you move it? It would have had to have been disclose if you did any modifications, ... more
