If you would like top dollar for your property I would replace it. Remember to sell the property you would want your buyers to have the feeling that it is their home.

Most government type loans you have to wait 3 ears from discharge date to apply. on an in house loan one year. Would have to look to see if credit has been re-established.

Overall, Chickasaw area is a very convenient, nice place to live. The concerns I have noted in 30+ years of working in this area..................the southwest end of the neighborhood has had some standing water and past flooding concerns. Some of that has been addressed and possibly eliminated in the last few years. However, I would have a full home inspection on any property I was interested in, whether in Chickasaw or any other area. Pay particular attention to any sign of dryrot or mildew/mold for present or past water problems. Secondly, it has been noted that something similar to modular, or quick, construction type homes have seen there...whether it is a couple or more than a couple. That concern is not something I have heard much about for many years. Also, around 2000 some faulty concrete was said to be seen in Hopkins County. Even with homes built many year prior to that, additional garages, home additions, patios, walks, drives, etc could have been built with use of that ACR(potentiallyfaulty) concrete. That should be researched prior to purchase and it is possible a home inspection may note that concern, but possibly not. The home owner needs to be questioned about any change to the property that took place around 1999 and the two to three or four years afterward. I do not certify anything noted in this commentary. I am only offering to you the same concerns I would consider if I or my family intended to purchase a home, in Chickasaw or elsewhere. Again, Chickasaw should be a good choice for a home. There may be other, or further, concerns I have not mentioned nor am aware of. ... more

I am pretty sure the site only draws from local Multiple List Services. The MLS is where your local Realtors will place their listings, in turn Trulia,, and many others will pick these listings up so consumers across the United States can see them. I hope this helps!

Located in Northaven, or Northhaven, Subdivision between Madisonville and Hanson. Homes are in the $40,000 to $90,000 generally...ranch style and some split foyers. Developed largely in the 1970's. Low area near the entrance, at bottom of a small hill, has water standing it it many times, with the pavement damaged quite often. about 10% of the homes appear to have less than standard maintenance. Maybe 10% of the homes sell each year. 303 Barnett is a pretty nice looking home from the exterior...believe it was remodeled in recent months or years. It is probably in the upper half of the neighborhoods value ranges. Mike Miller, Realtor and Appraiser. ps. no gutters, curbs or sidewalks in the area. And it can be entered from Brown Badgett Loop or North Main(Hwy 41) ... more

Dear Kara, there are so many questions to answer and important items to consider besides the credit score.... You really need to connect with a good local, personally available loan officer to sit down and figure out what your options are, how many other obligations you have like car payments etc., and then how much cash you have available to put as down payment, then you will be able to figure out your
monthly expenses, are you comfortable with them, you will also know up to what amount you can
borrow, and that amount should consider the taxes, insurance, loan amount and other obligations....

And once you figured out with a responsible loan officer, if you have options that will make it possible to purchase what you need like condo or single fam. home, 1 2 3 bedrooms etc.

Then it will be time after you get some kind of pre=approval to connect with a good local Realtor to
search for the property you can afford and you will be comfortable with....

Hope this helps a little, wish I could help you but I am not in your area, if you need recommendations for lenders and Realtors get back here and let us know where you are looking to buy.... and we will gladly recommend some good professionals for you.

It depends on the which state you would like information on. If a state is having a high unemployment rate then there are more foreclosers and short sales. Like in Florida prices have dropped as much as 50% on houses purchased during the peak prices of 2005-2006. This has effected housing prices even if you have a great house. If you would like more information about the Florida Housing Market on the Space Coast please contract me. ... more

Joe answered:
As of new FHA Case numbers issued on Jan 1. The down payment requirement will increase to 3.5%. Before that it was a 3% investment into the transaction of which 2.25% could be a down payment. The available seller's concession will stay at 6% and that 3.5% can be a gift from a family member. The only real significant rule change that happended over the summer was that seller funded down payment assistance was eliminated. Other than that some banks have tightened up on the FICO scores they will lend to (pretty much everyone will entertain over 580). Sounds like there may have been soem other issues on your buyers end ... more
