Contact a trusted local lender for advice on what programs they have available with different down payment amounts. You can then make a decision from there which way to go.

I'll be glad to help find a place for you in the Huntington area. I'd like the opportunity to sit down with you, learn what you're are looking for and go through the qualification process.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Eighteen days from contract to closing is an incredibly short time in this part of the country, especially for a deal with financing. Ninety days is typical. Once you have signed the contract, it is unlikely a seller will let you out of it without losing your downpayment. This is the price for a seller taking the property off the market and losing the opportunity to sell to someone else. ... more

It's best to already have the appraisal as a contingency in the contract if you want to back out.

Annette Levinson answered:
For the master insurance policy, you need replacement of the building. You also need hurricane coverage (wind) and fidelity (fro fraud on employees). For the buyers' personal home owners insurance, they do not need it for the mortgage but for the rules and regulations of the condo association. They will need replacement value (including the cabinets and appliances) plus liability of at least $100,000.
When I bought my condo in WPB, I had alot of difficulty with the insurance agents not knowing what a condo was.

Hi Craig, that rental still shows as available. If you narrow down your criteria such as areas and price further I would be happy to e-mail you a list of what's available on the MLS. Beware when dealing with rentals, if anyone asks for key money or deposits before seeing the house be very suspicious as there are many scams around.

Good evening James. The rental market is very active. Feel free to check out and click on the Rentals tab on the left section, or go to for a complimentary listingbook account, to search for available rentals like an Agent. You could also search Craigslist, but please be guarded because there are a lot of Scams out there.

If you need an Agent, just let me know. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me by the ways below.

Wishing you the best of luck,

Unfortunately the answer to that is no! You'll pretty much have to gather more money for down payment or consider purchasing a home at a lower price. With 10 or 15% down payment you'll have the option to get FHA financing if the loan amount is within $729,750.

Good Luck!
