Kathy Burgreen answered:
Have you researched all the costs involved in building a house (cost of buying land, property taxes, building materials, labor, insurance, permits, architect, contractors, etc.). Wouldn't it make more sense to buy an existing home? You can buy one recently built or one built 200 years ago. It will save you thousands of dollars if you hire a contractor & fix or change whatever you don't like. ... more

Some people would be attracted to a property that has better landscaping. I know that certain home buyers might request that a tree be removed before they buy the place. It depends on the situation. http://www.landscapeexpertsal.com/gallery ... more

Sunrise Hills is a New Construction Neighborhood that will eventually consist of 75 Single-Family Homes. We already have almost 30 families living here and we are in the process of building more.

Our website, www.sunrisehillsny.com, shows four main types of homes that we offer, but we have alot of variations to these homes that we can build. We are also working on a few more plans to offer based upon what some of our customers have asked us to get.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (845) 343-6353. We would love to help you in any way that we can.

The current lending enviornment, even if you do not show your tax return. The lender always required you to sign 4506T which is a income tax return transcript, it shows the first 2 pages of your tax return. If you do not have negative income or anything that need additional documents on. You can be qualify under asset dissapation, if you have a lot of assets to show lender that potentially can generate enough income to qualify a mortgage.

Hi Althea: It depends on the loan type and PMI insurance company's rule. Most cases no. Some mortgage insurance company will let you request for paid appraisal to see if the home has over 20% equity before they will drop the PMI. You have to contact either your lender or the mortgage insurance company. If you purchase the home a few years back, chances are the interest rate is a lot lower now. If you still have good credit and good income, another way you can do is to refinace. You can get rid of the PMI and get a lower interest rate and payment. Feel free to contact me at tina.tsai@everbank.com. ... more

I used to own a property in Canterbury knolls and my MIL still lives there. I would not suggest Middletown if you have school age children...especially twin towers school....the school system for this part of middletown. The insulation in the homes are terrible - our monthly heating bill was well over $300 during the colder months. Twice we've had to calling a plumbing company to u thaw our pipes. Buy at your own risk. My mother in law paid over 15k to have her home re- insulated and have new siding on her home to keep it heated. ... more

Typically the answer is with an FHA loan 3.5% of the purchase price. However as a 1st time home buyer you may qualify for down payment assistance programs that would enable you to put zero down. I would suggest you talk to a local lender to discuss all of your options. ... more
