Some times there might be more properties on the market at the same time which means more choices. Ideally, we all aim to have it no more than 30 days, but it could take longer.

Ftrev68,

This is a great question, and one that many new home buyers get confused on. As you might suspect, the builder's salesperson works for the builder and therefore has the builder's best interests at heart. It is important that you "hire" someone to represent your side of the transaction. It is also important to keep in mind that all sales commissions are paid by the seller. For newly constructed homes, the builder's typically pay commissions from their marketing budget. By not using an agent, you risk paying more for the home than your neighbor who used an agent (only an agent with access to MLS is able to see what properties are actually selling for). Let me know how I can help!

Why do you ask? I haven't never heard any building codes requiring that, but a contractor would be pretty silly to build a house without them! Almost all homes have had double pain windows for at least the last 15 years. They help insulate the house better. http://www.healyglass.com/Window-Installations-Lancaster-CA.html ... more

Gabriel Trevino answered:
My honest opinion is to stay away from foreclosures! 99.9999% of the time the homes are in bad condition. There is a reason why homes go to foreclosure. The owners simply can't afford it anymore. So if they can't afford the house, they can't afford the upkeep. Maybe the owners lost their job and are losing their house. The owners may be so upset by it, that they vandalize the house before they go and/or take everything from the house, from the toilets to the ice cube trays. The homes are also sold "as-is" and the banks won't make any repairs.

IF you are looking for your first home, then do it right, and find a house that is in good shape with little to no repairs needed. You home is not just an investment, but your sanctuary.

LGI and Centex homes are both builders who offer product attractive to the first time home buyer. So it really depends on what type of product and style that you are considering. I can discuss a list of great builders for you within the Richmond, Sugar Land area.

It really depends on what your ultimate home buying goals are. A Home buying certificate or First time home buyers certificate is not required unless you are planning to obtain First Time Home Buyer assistance funds.

Noelle Hsieh answered:
There are a couple of ways to go about purchasing auction properties. Traditionally, auctions take place on the first Tuesday of the month--rain or shine. The turnout to these auctions are very high, and many people get so caught up in the bidding rush that properties will be bought at retail value or higher. You can also take a look at auction sites to see if they have any 'web only' auctions in those zip codes. Those properties are more difficult to find. The most important thing to remember when purchasing auction properties is to verify what liens will be transferred to you when you purchase. If you overlook it, the lien(s) can easily eat up any profit you expected to make.

Best of luck!

Monica welcome to Richmond, Texas. I would love to assist you in your needs. I would need to know if you want to stay only in Richmond?

Melissa Stutes answered:
If you can find a lender that offers a portfolio loan that will allow a 608 credit score and you can show that you make enough in your monthly income to afford the payment on a $324K loan amount, then you should be able to qualify. VA and RD loans offer up to 100% financing. Otherwise, you are looking a minimum down payment of 3.5% (FHA) or 5% (Conventional). However, RD has an income limitation. I suggest contacting a local lender or mortgage broker to see if they can assist with financing with your credit score. ... more
