I have a loan closing in Androscoggin County next week. Purchase price is $190,000. Closing costs are $3400, prepaids $1800. Hope that helps you out. Taxes on this property are $2000/year and insurance $1000 so your prepaids might be less depending on the property. Feel free to reach out directly if you'd like to discuss your specific situation. You can find my lender reviews on zillow. ... more

Under contract means the sellers have accepted an offer and the buyer is waiting on financing.

You could submit a backup offer in case buyer 1 does not complete the sale for any reason, you would be next in line. You will need to find a lender and get a pre approval letter before doing this. You can find a reputable lender and get a pre approval quickly,

I like The Lenders Network they're usually able to find you a lender that'll give you a approval letter quickly .

Good luck!

It could cause friction. You should view a home right from the start with a buyer agent, not after seeing it with a listing agent. You can certainly hire a listing agent, but not sure if the listing agent will pay your agent a fee. You will have to discuss that with who you hire and then may have to explain to the listing agent why you saw it twice and then left them hiring a new agent. ... more
