Julie asked:
He wants to do it as a short sale. Is that a good option for me to do? Also, I know nothing about short sales.

Victory Property Management answered:
The recorded Notice of Default should give you an idea of the timeline. Short sales, however, can take a long long time to complete. If you purchase a home through a short sale, you do not have to worry about the two liens. It will be the responsibility of the owner/lender to provide you with clean title that is free and clear of all past liens. ... more

Usually not. It is not your property yet Good question. If it is really important to you, speak with an attorney.

This policy is already effective.

Are you having some kind of problem with your current lender in getting approved?

The best way is to look on the Davidson County website and do a GIS search. You can search by address or property owner name. When the aerial map comes up, look in the right hand column
and you will see where you can click on a link for a property card. Select that one and when the
property card comes up, it will tell you when it was last assessed. Hope this helps! If you need help,
you can contact me at 336-250-274. Thanks. Michelle DeLapp, Coldwell Banker Triad Realtors

My NC Homes Team answered:
You're signing a sales agreement isn't the same as the seller signing which creates a contract.

You really should find yourself a good buyer broker and sit down with them and allow them to explain the home buying process here in NC.

What isn't right is that the listing company is holding your money. You should tell them today that you're coming by and want a check ready when you get there for the full amount of your earnest money deposit and that if it isn't ready, then you'll be filing a formal complain with the NC State Real Estate Commission. You may also want to consider speaking with an attorney.

This a great market to buy in. Congrats for getting on the right track to home ownership. The key to a home purchase is an agent familiar with the area you will be purchasing in. Shows you the properties you would like to see, and helps you through contract negotiation, inspection period, and at the closing table.
As far as your credit goes.. Contact a local lender and let them know you are currently building your credit up for a purchase. At your request they can run your current credit and give you advice based off your credit report. An example would be you may have a student loan that may need to be paid off/down, or car loan to make the last few payments.

Good luck and feel free to contact me for a great lenders number to work with on your credit!

Nathan Wolf answered:
There are NO MONEY DOWN programs. It depends on your income and credit. There is a downpayment assistance program in North Carolina. It offers qualified lower income individuals up to $8000 toward their down payment at ZERO PERCENT interest!

And there are USDA loans which are 100-percent loans, which require no down payment.

There are also HUD foreclosure homes which require as little as $100 down payment.

Plus, first time homebuyers qualify for a $2000 PER YEAR TAX CREDIT using the Mortgage Credit Certificate. But you must apply for this at the time you apply for your loan otherwise you cannot go back and do it later.

If you have more questions, please email or call me: 704-858-2345

Carla Berrier answered:
There are always sellers that are in the position to lease instead of selling, Sometimes if a house has been on the market for a length of time, or the sellers circumstances are such that they can not wait to sell, they might be open to leasing, most agents can check for you on the lease situation, probably email directly to the agent you choose. ... more
