It sounds like you would prefer a bigger back yard. DO NOT SETTLE! Mortgages are a 15 to 30 year investment in which you need to be pleased with your purchase. Allow me to send some properties to your email so that you can weigh your options before you make a decision.... more
Many sellers will consider accepting an all cash offer that was slightly under asking price so that they will not have to worry about the possibility of financing not going through. How much they will consider would depend on the market conditions in the area such as comparable sales prices and days on the market.... more
As a Co-Borrower on a mortgage, that mortgage would be counted as part of your personal overall DTI (Debt To Income) ratios. If you are not occupying the home and can show that someone else is occupying the home and has been making the monthly payments then some Lenders will qualify you without that debt.
I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, (this does not require us pulling your credit) that will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted via my profile information for a no obligation consultation. My Office hours are 08:00 AM-08:00 PM Mon-Fri and Fri and Sat 08:00 AM-06:00 PM CST.

Hi Dee Dove, I am a licensed Realtor in the Dallas area and would be happy to help you and your family find a rental property that better accommodated your family. My service is free to you. Please feel free to contact me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org to give more details of your needs.
If you would like, contact me via email or phone and I will gather some information about the property and put together a rough CMA (comparative market analysis) based off recent sales and info about your property you provide. This will give you an idea of what it's worth.
Of course once you are ready to list, I would be happy to come out and give your home a thorough review and ensure the price is accurate.... more
Guy is totally correct. The seller does not have to do any repairs regardless of your financing requirements. While most buyer's and seller's work together to keep things moving forward all repairs have to be agreed upon by all parties.
In your case there do not even appear to be any homes where you have that option. When one does come on the market you may have more ability to get the seller to make necessary repairs due to what they are competing against and a willing buyer may be harder to come by. It all depends on the market. In the Austin area we are slowly moving towards that of a seller's market where willing buyer's may not have as much ability to force a seller to make necessary repairs as there are more willing buyers on properties that are priced correctly and in generally good condition.
Best of luck to you.

Having a mid-score off 540 is low. I always tell customers you need at least a 620 mid. Good news is you can improve your credit score. I would either contact a good credit specialist or lender who can assist you. Let me know if you need a referral. I know a great lender that offers credit repair at no cost to the buyer!
Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. i look forward to hearing from you!
Make it a Blessed Day!

Marketing land is not like marketing a home. It requires someone with the experience and expertise in marketing as well as real estate to sell your land and properly position it in the marketplace, beyond simply listing it on the MLS.
We create an entire marketing campaign around your land and can even provide you with free conceptual designs for the property (including house design, landscaping, etc.) as part of our agreement with you.
Give me a call if you would like to discuss this or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

By closing before January 1 you will be able to claim a Homestead Exemption on the property taxes. You must file this exemption before May 1. In Dallas County this should result in a 20-25% reduction in your total property tax obligation. Check www.Dallascad.org or www.openingtilclose.blogspot.com for more infomation.
I think it depends on what obligations you're thinking about. Your obligations to the contract may start the day you sign. The contract might require you be present at certain construction stages, apply for financing at a certain time, and other obligations. Typically your obligation to start utilities, care for the lawn, payment for the house, taxes, insurance, and most other financial obligations would start after closing.... more
