You are definitely in a great situation compared to many others that do not have such great credit or money to put down. You should have no problem in getting financed. If you can't sell your home in NC and you plan on carrying both homes, a lender will still look at your DTI (Debt to Income) ratio to determine if you can afford both homes. If you end up selling the home in NC first, then you will be able to purchase a home here without a problem.
If you would like a hard-working agent to help you find and purchase a home here, please consider contacting me. I have helped many home buyers relocate to Las Vegas by finding the home they desire and doing all the legwork for them. I would basically be your "eyes & ears" here in Las Vegas. I love working with buyers that are relocating here because I can really show my professionalism and dedication to them. You can contact me at (702) 203-6688 anytime. I would then start by connecting you with a great lender for your financing and going about looking for the home you desire. Hope to hear from you. Take care...
