I would suggest that you work with a local realtor to assist you. There are many things to consider before purchasing a new house vs a pre-owned house.

Your REALTOR should have gotten you an option period of 7 to 10 days that allowed for you to get the home inspected and back out without penalty if buyer and seller could not come to terms. There are three levels of negotiation in these transactions. Initial offer and acceptance, Option period (inspection), and appraisal. Prime example of why it is essential to hire a professional. You wouldn't perform your own brain surgery would you? ... more

I am a preferred REALTOR for a program that purchases any home currently on the market for you and leases it to you until you can get a mortgage for it. Home must be in the top 50% of schools and resident cannot have any felonies or evictions. I would be honored to discuss in further detail if interested. ... more

Hi Shun,

I would say no because the LO has "vested" interest in the transaction as the seller of the home. If you're concerned about it, call the Texas Department Of Savings and Mortgage Lending.

Hi Cintia,

What type of loan is the Lender doing and is the appraisal completed and do you know if the Condo is FANNIE Approved. There are the primary things that could possible hold up the loan, but not this loan as I get Condo in Arlington TX next door done in under 30 days with new FANNIE approval.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this does not require us pulling your credit and will allow you to make the best decision for your family.

You should consult with Texas real estate attorney. Strange thinks happen with foreclosures. That is why title insurance is so important when you purchase a foreclosure.

If you have an agent, have your agent ask the builder why there's a difference.

Susie Kay answered:
in a hot seller's market I'm seeing more and more buyers paying out of pocket for the difference. Are you in multiple offers situation? Do sellers have back up contracts? How bad do you want the home? Answering these questions can help determine what you do next. Also I agree with Sally below, consult your lender and your realtor. They are your best source for advice!

Good luck!

Susie Kay answered:
I would suggest that you ask your realtor about making an offer and your lender about the loan. What's the comps for the area? Has the sale price reflect the repair for the foundation? Is this home bank owned? How do you know that the foundation needs repair? Did the seller indicate that or did you see it yourself?

There are variables that you'll need to take into consideration before making offer on a home so it's best that you hire a realtor to assist you. I hope this makes sense!

Hi Mary,

Unfortunately most lenders just don't want to do construction loans let alone something as specific as a VA or FHA construction loan. If you really want to go this route you'll probably need to either start out with a standard construction loan and convert it into a VA loan when the home is finished or find a builder that will take care of the construction and costs upfront and then sell you the home once it's finished.
