All realtors/ agents can handle VA loans BUT the difference is whether an agent is too lazy to deal with the extra requirements that VA loans ask for. overcome some lazy agents, make sure you have a pre approval from a lender that says you are financially able to close on a home.

The other issue is working with a buyers agent who has the negotiation skills to convince a listing agent that VA loans are good to close on a home and you are pre approved. You need to learn that a buyers agent who represents you is not always the problem - it's the listing agent who convinces the seller (their client) that VA loans are bad.

So before looking at homes, contact a lender & get pre approved.

No, a seller can share their survey with the buyer, if they have one and if the title company approves it. But more often than not, the buyer pays for a new survey, although it's negotiable.

How bad is your credit? It will be hard to find a rental property with both bad credit and rental history. You are probably better off purchasing a home if you qualify for a loan. Let me know if you'd like to be connected to a lender or two and you can decide what you need to do from there. You can phone me.

If your buyer is a cash buyer then it's unlikely he'll need a survey. However, if a lender is involved then survey is needed. There are options that you can choose about the survey when preparing to sell your property and I'd be happy to guide you. Feel free to phone me.

Very likely; however, having said that, you can always ask the property management company or the landlord.

That depends on what you'd like to do. Have you consulted your insurance company? You can sell your home if you like, but it will be to an investor. The question is which one is more beneficial for you? I would suggest looking at both options and determine which one you like. ... more
