That all depends on the sellers. With that being said, I think we really need more information in order to answer the question properly. Are you unable to close sooner due to the fact your future income is an unknown at this point? You are at your current duty station, but this house is at another location that you want to go to after his discharge? You just don't have time to deal with the process of closing on a home right now?

Feel free to give me a call. I'm a retired USAF officer & work in Tucson, AZ as a real estate agent now. I don't claim to know everything, but I'm pretty good at finding the answers people need when going through complicated transitions. I served as a personnel officer in the Air Force and also as an advocate for surviving families in the Army's Survivor Outreach Services program, so I'm pretty familiar with DOD and VA benefits. I would be happy to help you figure out your options.

Tim provide a very important response.
Financing new builds is a bit different....a whole lot different.
After you chat with a loan officer, try a local lender.
Specificly, contack a local lender who has a track record of investing in the community through small business loand and home loans. Choose an "A" or "B" graded lender.
Simply enter the zip or city of your destination location, the call.
Next step is to contact a local real esate professional. They can idenfy for you where the new construction communities are. Go there WITH YOUR AGENT. If you skip or forget that detail there will be a surpise you won't like later.
Many of these designed communities will have preferred financing that will not have the same requirements of a mortgatge broker, bank or local lender. That is how they become so successful, by removing the financing obstacles. Don't proceed without an professional representing you.
Now you have a broader view of the options available to you. Your financial adviser and attorney will be able to provide guidance regarding the instrument of ownership most beneficial to you and the best venue to leverage your collateral and other purchase assets.
It time to CALL a Lolo, MT professional.

Great question. Walk score is a somewhat new term relating to the walk-ability of a property to shopping, schools, restaurants and includes a variety of different criteria. The higher the number, the more walkable the property is. Hope that helps!
