Basements are so uncommon that it is not even a searchable field on our MLS.

Haines city is the third most populated city in Polk county. It is out there in the country from my perspective. Lego land is located in Haines city and is helping to boost tourism. Kissimmee is much larger in population due to how close it is to Orlando. The Gaylord Palms resort and convention center is located in Kissimmee. A large percentage of the population work for Walt Disney. ... more

Before I answer your question, I need to state that I am not a real estate tax consultant and you need to verify my answer with one. That being said, the tax on the sale of a home is called Capital Gains Tax. Generally speaking, you do not need to pay any tax as long as you will not earn over $250,000 in profits off the sale. That is the sales price less your purchase price and any improvements/remodeling projects. ... more

Yes you can. As long as you qualify for the loan without using her income.

The only thing is the lender will require her to acknowledge the loan documents. So she will need to sign at closing but not be the financially responsible for the loan.

I have sold several homes purchased in the same scenario.

Good Luck.

I sold my home through a Short Sale. I was told after two years, I would be able to purchase a small comdo- home at a much lower mortgage that I could afford. Would I qualify even if my credit was not perfect. Could my son be on the mortgage, with excellent credit (my son) I would be the only one occupying the home....I would pay the mortgage- he would only be lending me his good credit...It would be my purchase....I am an older single lady, I draw social security and would be able to make the mortgage. Thank you. sandi ... more

I know this question is more than a year old, but if you are still pursuing an answer you do qualify. If the person purchasing the property is a first time home buyer, the manner of payment will not affect the program qualification, but if a trust is being used there may be better alternatives of financing.
I hope this helps!

Linda Grey answered:
A lot depends upon the type of housing you are looking for; rental, purchase, condo, single family home, type of pet and if a dog the weight and breed of the dog. Once you have determined that, then yes contact a local Realtor in the area and let him or her know what you are looking for and provide them with the above information, they will then be able to direct you to the right properties.

You won't know up front until you make that call and contact a local area Realtor, they will be the one to help you.

Best wishes.

Abraham Bidhendi answered:
Hi:

A lot of my clients have purchased with Dr. Horton and none of them so far had any problems. Of course, specially with big builders and thousands of homes that they build/year you will always find some complaint on the internet. You could have an inspection independently done as well.

Remember when dealing with a builder it is much much better to have a Realtor to help you through the process, contract,… otherwise you are not going to be really represented. The builder’s reps are usually employees of the builder they work for the best interest of builder not yours. Feel free to let me know if you would like us to come with you to the builder whether Dr Horton or any other builders, even if you have visited the community by yourself before it is still not late.
