Aaron,

Sounds like your home is costing you a mortgage payment in utilities alone. With interest rates still down, I think you will be surprised on what it will cost to own a home in todays market.
Contact me and we can work out a plan to start the process and to help you get these bills under control.
Thanks for the question.

Hi Amanda, the lenders I deal with are very good at following up, there have been on occasion where a loan officer may leave the company so the client gets lost. I have dealt with this before but I always take care of it if it does happen. Feel free to visit our website, thelendersnetwork.com or email me at david@thelendersnetwork.com and would be glad to help.

Sincerely, David Wood

Cheryl Talbot answered:
Amanda....I am not sure if you have found the lender or the home with the VHDA loan program. If you have, congratulations. If you haven't I know some very reliable lenders who work with buyers on the VHDA program. They know it very well. So if you do still need assistance, contact me. You should have gotten the service you expected back in November. I certainly wouldn't work with someone who didn't return my calls. That's the first indicator they aren't the right choice for you. Thanks ... more

Ted Wheaton answered:
Hello Ray, this home was takin off the market and still shows the owners name in the tax records. I have not done a drive by to see if the owners are still in the home. If the bank has it they must still be working on clearing title on it. That can take time if they don't know who the true owner of the loan is. I do have a way that you can be one of the first to know when it comes back on the market. Please feel free to call me and I can tell you how. 757-404-4978 Ted WHeaton Re/max Allegiance twheat66@gmail.com ... more

Rudy McDowell answered:
Hi, Kline

As stated, with FHA, the min FICO is typically 640, and the min down payment is 3.5%. Your monthly MIP (as of business close today) will now be .90% per every $1,000.00. This is almost double from what it use to be (.55%).

Conventional/Fannie Mae, thru the HomePath program you can put down as little as 3%. You will also need a min FICO of 700-720. With the standard Conventional financing you can put down as little as 5%, and your score can be as low as 680. However, depending on your actual down payment, credit score, and the property's location, your monthly PMI can be very high. Consult with a local or locally licensed LO to determnined whats best for you.

Michael Weaver answered:
No, I disagree with Drew. You hire an agent to work for you, but he is entitled to "fire"himself at anytime. You cannot force him to present a low offer unless it has already been written. You need to not look at buying a house from the prospective, I am not paying full price either. Comparables are intended to set the price of homes, however, have you ever looked in a car magazine and seen a 1993 Civic for $10,000. You think to yourself,"Wow, they are really proud of that car." Same goes for houses. The sellers do determine the price-Side note: If you were a seller, of a $300K home and you asked your agent to list your home at $500K, and he said no, with your argument, he should list at that price because he works for you. Hope that helps put things into prospective. -Because the sellers choose the price, they may be a little high. You don't need to pay them that price, and I recommend, if you do decide to write low, send comps showing you have done your homework. If you show that you are genuinely interested in purchasing the house, and not just trying to steal it from the current owners, they will be less inclined to be upset with your insultive offer. My advise through all this is, don't insult the selers without just cause. If you can't afford what they are asking, or refuse to pay it, I would move on. There is no need to upset people. ... more
