There are some really great answers below. The consensus is that this needs repairs which the seller is in no position to make. Have you looked at doing a renovation loan? There is a program called FHA Streamline 203(k) which allows you to finance the costs of repairs up to $35,000. If you really like this house I suggest you contact an agent below and a foundation repair company. Then figure in the cost of repair into your offer and see if it will work for you. If you do this kind of loan you will need to only put down 3.5% of the price + renovation as a down payment and when you close the contractor you hired to fix the house will go out and repair the foundation and then the house is yours. Call or email me if this sounds like an interesting idea to you. By the way, the foundation does not have to only be repair. You can get new floors, kitchen, AC unit etc... I can give you a full list. Luis 210-845-3133 ... more

We are military too. We have our home for sale and it is move in ready. It is clean has 4 and a library downstairs that can double as a bedroom if you want. We used it for our piano and books. Take a look the MLS number is 962214 78254 San Antonio TX. We are centrally located and 5 mins from the largest HEB for grocery shopping , 10 mins from la Cantera shopping mall and close to all fun things. We are 15 miles from Lackland AFB and 25 mins from downtown. The house is located in a cuddlesac so it is safe and quiet. We played baseball and football in the cuddlesac every one is family orientated and helpful. The neighborhood is clean and safe.

Is there any way I can talk you into taking advantage of what will probably be the best buyer's market we may ever see in our lifetimes?

Prices are down
Interest rates are WAY DOWN
Sellers are willing to wheel and deal

If you buy a home now:

* You will get more for your money - Rentals never stack up to homes you can buy for the same payment

* Tax Write-off - You can write off the interest you pay on your mortgage, you can't do that with rent

* Build Equity in the home - Each time you make a payment, you are that much closer to owning it!

* Gain Appreciation - Homes tend to go up in value... the home is worth more than you bought it for!

If you rent a home: You get nothing!

While agents on our team aren't set up to facilitate rentals using the Section 8/Housing Choices program, when we get calls asking about finding properties that accept vouchers, we always suggest that one good way to find rental properties that are set up for those programs is to check with the local housing authority office.

You can find more information about the San Antonio Housing Authority at or reach them by phone at 210.477.6210.

Thank you and good luck in your housing search!
