Karen Peyton answered:
I'm confused as to how you were approved for a loan without funds for your down-payment?? It's part of the process...

Answering your question - the fastest way to obtain the funds is for someone (who loves you a whole lot) to "gift" them to you.

Be Careful!!! You must tell your lender first so he or she can instruct you of the process. If you say nothing to your lender and one day end up with a boat-load of cash - you will have created a problem for yourself! Don't do that!!

Best of luck!

No a downpayment of 20% is not always required
It depends on the type of mortgage, speak to the lender and see what you qualify for. Interest rates can vary depending on down payment too

Cash can mean a quick closing and it depends on the current CMAs but you can try 10- 5% off asking price

Maybe not in this day and age of a sellers market. I think the list to sale ratio has gone up so much across the country that if a seller has a nice home that is priced according to the market they do not have to take less just because it's cash.
Good question though.
I think the best way for you to get the most for your money is to come in right when a property comes on the market, make a strong offer with a good amount of earnest money.
All the best to you

Winni,
Trulia does not accept For Sale by Owner listings. Even if they did, and you posted here and on every other site that took them, you wouldn't get the exposure you can from using a great local agent and being on your local MLS.
A great agent is worth more than whatever you pay them, but a bad one, or none at all can cost you way more than just a commission.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Before doing anything, more analysis is needed.
Is the patio area subject to inordinate water accumulation?

For instance, if the patio is located in a corner and there are no gutters, the water flowing off two roof surfaces for over then year may be the cause. IF the patio is below grade, perhaps water diversion methods should be applied in other locations to prevent wash out that ultimately leads to patio issues.

Now, it is possible the patio was installed without proper preparation. The best solution is the bust it up and pour a new one....or bust it up and put down really nice pavers.....or bust it up and plant a garden.

If you bust is up, before doing anything else, plan a water diversion strategy that will redirect any water away from then house regardless of the condition of the patio. Perforated pipe or french drains work well when sized properly. But don't overlook the need for gutters, downspouts and peculators.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
