Yes you can purchase a home with as little as 3% down conventional loan and 3.5% on FHA home loan. I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this does not require us pulling your credit and will allow you to make the best decision for your family.

What property are you referring to? (There was no link or address provided). You can also ask your Realtor. HOA fees vary from place to place. The data you find here isn't necessarily the most up to date, or the most accurate. Your Realtor is the BEST source of any questions you may have. ... more

That's odd that the inspector said there was no plumbing problems. I would probably get a second opinion about the piping problems. That's a big repair, especially if a professional said recently that there were no problems. If there really is a problem, the inspection company didn't do their job properly. http://www.epgi.com.au ... more

With the new technology people don't ask questions that much, they go online and they find out for themselves.

I say yes and no. On a home the "Builder" has to still build the changes of negotiating a price reduction are slim but getting additional upgrades is more likely. If however your looking at a SPEC home, one that has already been build then there might be some wiggle room in the price. As others have stated, the answer is always no unless you ask.

I would love to help you out in the North Valley.

If this $16,000 home has wheels attached and is NOT situated on deeded land, you will pay sales tax.

If this $16,000 home is located on deeded property, you will pay state documentary taxes on the deed. and a few other things.

Joseph Domino answered:
Any property is only worth what someone will pay for it. If you are someone that must sell because of financial hardship or relocation, you take what you can get. There is not a lot of choice here. Of cousre as the party that wants to stay you would prefer that they ask more, but again asking and selling are two different things. They could always keep the property and rent it, but then your community would become one with an excess of renters which will also hurt the value.

Tough situation, but not many options.

It really depends on what you negotiated, and what are the terms and conditions. I have seen buyers that exercised the option to buy, and they made a good deal.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Legitimate cash offers will provide the second most important element of a purchase offer.
Besides price, the assurance of closing is valued greatly by the seller and the buyer.

Unfortunately, there are many, many buyers touting 'cash is king' who are in reality..BROKE!
These cash buyers are a trap waiting to spring on the unsuspecting home seller. These cons will tie up the property for months before revealing they can not buy.

Many cash buyers have drank the 'Cash is King" Kool-Aid and believe they can discount their offer by 20%. That is not going to work. In many Florida markets, (I know you are in Texas) over 50% of homes are sold for cash and that deep discount simply will not fly. Discount should not be a part of your thinking.

As a cash buyer, make sure your credentials are well vetted to assuage the seller you are not a con.

Assurance of closing should be the currency you are offering to a seller..
That is what a real cash buyer brings to the table.

Sir, this is an over 40 community. Yes we do own our own land. Westbrook Village is a very nice retirement community. Family members over 19 years of age are welcome to live as long as 1 family member is over 40. Golfing, shopping, bicycle riding and hiking are some of the most popular activities here. I recently posted 9129 W Sequoia Dr in Westbrook Village for sale. This is a 2 bedroom 2 full baths with a covered patio plus an outdoor patio. Low maintenance yard and the house faces north which in AZ is a plus in the summer time. Call 602-828-1642 for details. Thank you! ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
To be honest all cities which comprise the Phoenix metro area are good for rental properties. The amount of your budget ($200k) will determine the location, size, and amenities of homes located in each city. Are you familiar with the three you mentioned? I ask because the distance from Gilbert to Peoria is approximately 45 miles - a journey that could take you to or through the borders of: Mesa, Chandler, Tempe, Phoenix, and Glendale depending on how you choose to travel. My advice is that you contact an agent and state your goals. What is valuable to one investor may have little or no value to another. Without knowing exactly what you want to accomplish, picking a city means nothing. If you'd like assistance, please contact me. ... more
