Hi Bruner.brianna,

I say the sooner the better. The sooner you start the more time you'll have to address any issues if there are any. It will also give you more time to "look" around at homes are available in your price range & explore the areas you want to buy in.

I specialize in VA financing & would be happy to help you.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Have your new agent contact the old one to remove the old listing on Trulia. Then your new agent can post a new listing on your home with the new photos.

Victory Property Management answered:
Assessors value homes in "bulk" meaning that properties are classed together, assigned a per square foot value and then assessed. Since the assessor does not actually inspect the interior, the taxable value of the home should never be used to determine a purchase price.

I would recommend that you work with a real estate agent (and not the listing agent) to determine a fair price for the home. This will get you the best deal.

Yes you can get a loan with a 580 score.
I have FHA programs that only require 3.5% down payment. The 3.5% down payment can be a gift from a family member too.

I want to ask a specific question about a property, but do not want to start receiving phone calls. I am very busy with calls taking care of two elderly people. I apparently cannot ask a question unless I provide a phone number. How do I get around that? ... more

Sanford is a small town with intermittent growth. Its had its fair share of ups and downs with the surrounding businesses. In recent past there had been a tornado that had did some extensive damage to include Lowes.

Sanford continues to rebound quietly with new home communities and civic activities. With proximity to parks and major cities, most consider it a place to raise a family in a country like setting.

Jessica Bateman answered:
FHA really isn't credit score driven, it's the Banks and Lenders that set those score requirements. There are a few lenders that go down to 580 with FHA, I personally have closed on several homes with clients around and under 600. I recommend all my clients that have credit issues to check with The Lenders Network, check them out. If anyone can get you approved they can! ... more

Andree Freeman answered:
I understand your concerns about owning a home and purchasing a 2nd home. the figures you have quoted are not exactly accurate. A monthly payment on a purchase depends on many factors like how much you are going to put down and what the taxes and possible HOA fees might be if you are in a neighborhood that charges those. I have a few other questions like do you have or do you intend to put your home on the market in order to avoid two payments which you will have whether you rent or purchase. Have you considered renting out your other home until the market recovers and you can make more on the sale of it. In the meantime you could purchase as it is a great time to buy with property values down in the area and interest rates low. You could purchase a lot of house for a $1200 payment.
Please feel free to contact me if I can give you more answers or you would like to discuss your options. I am available for information even if you do not purchase a home and I can help with rental properties as well.
