You can determine the value of your property by clicking the "Get my home value" link located at the upper part of your property page. If you're looking for a precise value for your home, we recommend you talk to a real estate professional.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hi Michael

That's not nearly enough information to determine if you could qualify for a mortgage.

SSI is acceptable as a source of income as long as it is likely to continue going forward.

As a disabled vet, you'd probably have access to the VA loan program, which is a really great loan.

But the other things that will be looked at by every bank are your credit scores, the amount of debt you have, and the amount of income you receive. Lenders are going to want to make sure that you make enough income to afford a new house payment and also your current monthly debts.

It's best to speak directly to a loan officer who can help you determine if you qualify.

Feel free to send me an email or call me if you need assistance with this!

Call Seth.....hopefully he doesn't do the credit checks, and background checks, and the two months of security up front and so on and so on and so on.....apparently Connecticut is NOT the place to live if your finances are slightly "strained". Looks like "po folks" aren't tolerated in this part of the country. ... more

Brent Bell answered:
What we have in real estate for sellers trying to attract buyers is a price war & a beauty contest! If your home looks better than the competition and is priced better, you will be successful in selling. The houses with bathrooms last updated in the 1950s and kitchens last updated in the 1970s are going to lose the beauty contest every time---so they can only compete on price and buyers are demanding deep discounts for dated houses. For instance, if your bathroom would cost you $5,000 to update ---- tile, new fixtures, new shower head and you choose to adjust the price instead of doing the work, the buyer of your house will likely expect a $15,000 to $25,000 discount because they will now have to complete the work after they move in!

Pricing your house depends on the most comparable sales --- not comparing your house to other houses on the market which have not been able to attract buyers... Have your agent show you what has sold and closed in the last 90 days within 1 mile of your property, then make realistic adjustments for any deferred maintenance.

Good luck with your research! If you want a rough idea, fill out the form on my website and I will email you with a very rough estimate of value (when I actually inspect the property, the accuracy of the valuation increases...).

Generally 1099's are released by the closing attorney for the seller. You may want to check with the closing attorneys.
