It's totally possible that you do not qualify. These days, the fact that you have close to 50% down-payment alone doesn't make you a qualified borrower. Lenders still need to see your income, credit and everything else.

You should be able to speak with a Loan Officer and see what you could do to improve your credit enough to qualify for a mortgage. That's probably your best solution. Good luck.

An agent is an agent. They are all self-motivated liars. I hate to tell you the truth.
work with a pleasant one and realize, they DO NOT care about you, just a sale and commission.

I stand corrected. My title insurance agent, Murray Levin at Grateful Abstract said:

Transfer tax is based on assessed value times 3.27. So yes, that is $73,575. The multiplier changes a least once a year, usually on July 1. ... more

OK....... research future neighborhoods,

Prepare your selling home to shine like a jewel so you can get an appealing and strong buyer that will give you a smooth transaction and a flexible settlement date... by doing so.... your paper trail that you have to show on your future purchase home .... will be solid and acceptable to your new seller of the future home with an offered flexible settlement date.

Its not always the money... its the way you structure the smooth transaction in the complex time scheduling world that we live in. Keep it smooth and simple.

Hi John,

You must be looking at outdated information. As all the other agents have stated, this one is under contract pending settlement real soon.

Obviously, you are looking to purchase real estate. Whether you are looking for a home to live or an investment property, it is extremely important that you find a professional Realtor to work with. It will save you time and effort looking through many listings that may be no longer available, sold, or were taken off the market. It would be in your best interest to interview a few different Realtors to find someone you fell comfortable working with to be your Buyer's Agent. That Buyer's Agent will represent you and your best interests to help you find the right property, negotiate a good deal, and follow up with all the necessary paperwork and conveyancing to make sure everything goes smoothly and you make proper setllement on time.

Good luck in your search. If I can help you in any way, please feel free to call me. I'd be honored to interview for the job to be your Buyer's Agent. Have a Happy Easter Weekend!

All the best,
Larry Lichtman
