Karen Peyton answered:
What you do is contact a local agent for a professional opinion of value in the condo's present condition. Agents understand every repair has an associated price tag, but often what we see is much less of a problem than what a homeowner sees. Sometimes a broken light fixture only needs a light bulb, and a "running" toilet only needs a stopper. The cost of both examples is less than $20 instead of hundreds.

Use the Find an Agent tool at the top and call a few agents! Sell if you can and get a fresh start!

Best of luck!

I suggest you contact Home Loans For All. They deal with all types of situations including this one. They have shown us they're experts even with USDA home loans. I'll include a link to their website. Hope this helps.

Not sure what you mean by "legitimate"?? Yes, there are flat fee, or discount brokerages who can handle a real estate transaction. They can list your home in the MLS and then let you deal with the rest. But is it worth it? I see so many FSBO people on here asking questions about transactions. They get stuck when something goes wrong and look to us REALTORS for answers. Sorry, but if you want a smooth transaction, hire a full service REALTOR. In most cases you'll actually SAVE money! ... more

Get a lawyer to review your contract and find a way out. Builders contracts are notoriously one sided. Since we don't have access to the contract, and we aren't lawyers, you really should consult one for the best answer. With $50k on the line, the cost will be worth it. ... more

I agree with Norma. There are many great agents in this area. Look at the recommendations on Trulia and other real estate websites. I would also look at the individual companies and the recommendations. It is very acceptable for a buyer or seller to interview an individual agent as well. Hope that helps and good luck in your search!

We just saw all-time record lows, so the chance of seeing them go down again is very slim. It is probably as unlikely as seeing them go back up to their all time highs back in the early 80's, when they hit the high teens!! But gradual growth can most likely be expected... ... more

You can get approved with under a 600 credit score for home loan not sure about USDA though. I have a 580 credit score and got approved for FHA just 3.5% down, The Lenders Network sent me to one of their lenders to get me approved so I would try there.

Good Luck!

It appears so. I have met several people in my apartment complex over the age of 55 who are planning or have moved into a DelWeb or "Sweetwater" community ( age 55 plus community). I have 9 more years to think about it. I feels weird saying I am not old enough. They are very nice and quiet communities. ... more

Your Credit May Not Be As Bad As You Think,

By Stephen Webber Retired After 34 Years of Real Estate For First Time Home Buyers

Most importantly don’t do anything until your loan officer looks it over with you. So many times people do what would seem like a good idea; pay off a past due or pay off a credit card and close the account to later discover they actually lowered their rating.

Loan officers work with credit continually and many times can suggest a notification or two and presto the rating is up. Maybe there is a late pay that didn’t happen or maybe should have fallen of the report months earlier.

They have a very strong incentive. They can’t make a loan unless the credit is acceptable so the experienced loan officers know their stuff.

An article that will serve you well is '#13 Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers' at Your Road Also article #5 Your Credit and Financing Your Home.

Choose your loan officer before you allow anyone to fix or monitor your credit. Your loan type will dictate the required rating. Once you know exactly what needs to happen you can direct the requirements, establish a time line and plan your next step.

The shortest path to owning your home.

Most importantly;
Don’t let anything or anyone deter you from your goal of owning your home.

Best of Luck, Stephen Webber Retired After 34 Years of Real Estate For First Time Home Buyers
