Yes, it's best to use one agent at a time when you're buying a home. If you feel compelled to use more than one realtor, your current realtor may not be the right fit for your needs. Every real estate firm has a contract with a list of rules. If you are looking for a firm with more flexibility, you should try searching on The platform has a wide variety of agents with different requirements. You may find an agent that meets your standards so you don't have to approach or use multiple realtors at time. ... more

What's the point? If you can pay cash for the home, do that, and then save your would-be mortgage payment to build your savings and investments back up.

Depending on where you live and how properties are assessed that could be completely normal. In Illinois, for example, assessed values are not even close to market value--they use some convoluted math equations to reach their assessments and then more convoluted math to figure the percentage for the taxes.(which are outrageous no matter how they figure it!!) But in Kentucky an assessment is the actual price of the home(or very close to) and then taxes are just a straight percentage of that figure. That said, you should check with the assessors office to see when the property was last assessed and if that assessment included any special discounts for the previous owner--you may be in for a shock on what your taxes will actually be. ... more

Yes, it's possible. If you have good credit you can get a conventional loan with 3% down, or an FHA loan with 3.5% down. Whenever you put less than 20% down you'll have to pay mortgage insurance, but it's usually not enough to deter most people from buying a home.

On top of the fact that anyone can sue anyone for anything at any time, if there is something wrong enough with this house that the current owners feel the need to sue they must include every single party involved including any professionals like real estate agents.

As the case proceeds, the responsibility of each party will be reviewed and people will slowly be weeded out of the suit.

You can add the closing costs to a USDA loan, assuming the home appraisal is high enough over the sales price. Or just keep your 3% down payment and do 0% down payment. Use your 3% to pay the closing costs. This assumes your location qualifies for USDA.
