Having a 50% down payment is a very good thing and currently the market has lots of incentives for first time buyers and people with low incomes. But the bottom line is you need regular income to own a home. Not only to pay your taxes, mortgage etc. but for general maintenance and repairs. Houses cost money there's no way around it! ... more

John, I've lived in North Kingstown for eleven years and have owned property in South County for thirty.

The cost per square foot has to be at the neighborhood level where all homes are built with very similar finishes. You should only consider a $/sqft as a range not an exact number.

You can only compare ranch style homes to ranch style homes and 2-stories w/o finished basements to 2-stories w/o finished basements. A ranch style home will have a higher $/sq ft due to the larger foundation and roof (large fixed cost) distributed over the square footage, whereas a 2-story's fixed costs (smaller roof and foundation) are less and distributed over the same square footage. Properties with similar land value should be considered too (premium lots vs low value lots).

There are a lot of things to consider in this analysis, which is called an appraisal :)

You really need a buyers' agent on your side who is familiar with bank addendums. Typically they are attached to any purchase and sale agreement on these properties. Your agent can also talk with your credit union to find out what type of loan you are pre-approved for and what properties will work with it. ... more
