You can try to assure them that the dog is house broken and friendly. It also helps if the dog is crated while you are away from the property. It also might help to find a rental that has been vacant for a while as the landlord may be happy to just fill the vacancy. www.CFeinstein.Realtor ... more

It's totally possible that you do not qualify. These days, the fact that you have close to 50% down-payment alone doesn't make you a qualified borrower. Lenders still need to see your income, credit and everything else.

You should be able to speak with a Loan Officer and see what you could do to improve your credit enough to qualify for a mortgage. That's probably your best solution. Good luck.

An agent is an agent. They are all self-motivated liars. I hate to tell you the truth.
work with a pleasant one and realize, they DO NOT care about you, just a sale and commission.

Jaime answered:
I live right across the blvd. from Mayfair/Holmesburg, in the Rhawnhurst section of NE Philly. It's a great neighborhood. Pretty low crime (petty crime occurs.. but tell me where it doesn't?)
In recent years there has been an influx of transplants moving around there mostly because of larger homes in the city, cost is pretty good, low crime and you will still be around public transportation, parks, night life, minutes from downtown....

Sheri Curci answered:
OK....... research future neighborhoods,

Prepare your selling home to shine like a jewel so you can get an appealing and strong buyer that will give you a smooth transaction and a flexible settlement date... by doing so.... your paper trail that you have to show on your future purchase home .... will be solid and acceptable to your new seller of the future home with an offered flexible settlement date.

Its not always the money... its the way you structure the smooth transaction in the complex time scheduling world that we live in. Keep it smooth and simple.
