Hello vrglmonroe17, Yes is the short answer. I just got an offer on one on Dailey place just around the corner for much more than that. I can’t revile the price until it closes.

Dale makes a great point. In our state, there are some subdivisions that do not allow this and also the municipality may require a permit as Dale already stated. Best to be safe than sorry. ... more

Hi April,

Under the Mortgage Disclosure Improvement Act a lender is not allowed to charge or collect fees prior to the consumer receiving early disclosures other than a bona fide and reasonable fee for obtaining a consumer’s credit report.
Your lender should not have charged you an application fee without providing you a copy of their Good Faith Estimate and Truth In Lending disclosures.

You can read more about the MDIA by going here:

You really should start looking for a new lender ASAP.

Don't bother, April.

My advice is to send your sister to her bank and/or other lenders.
She must qualify for a loan anyway. She may or may not want an
adjustable rate.

Go to her bank with her. Know how much you owe and have an idea of current value. Get the loan
officer's best advice governing your specific situations.

Dan Chase answered:
Alacea, I am surprised that with a masters degree you would only be making $34k a year. I know it is a tough job market out there today. Could you find another job with your education that would pay you $50k or more? If so that could change your DTI numbers completely.

Or have I misread and you are studying for a masters degree? If so you are very likely to have it pay off very well once you graduate.

I know, some areas (location and area of expertise) either pay very little or have so many people who trained for them that the competition for jobs has brought down wages. If you start to look for another job that could bring your income up to more realistic (for your educational costs) wages it would likely be your best option. I would go to either the unemployment office OR your college career center and ask what things you can do with your career. If the college will not help for free the unemployment office will.

Remember, just because you have a degree that says "A" does not mean you are not capable of doing or wanted for "B,C,& D" also. A lot of companies always thought masters degrees were great even if not in the exact area that the job title implies. Although in this economy, it may take awhile to find something I am sure you will have opportunities if you simply look for them.

It depends

Generally if you're making a lateral or upward movement in the same field you are going to be OK. Lenders may require you to begin the new job and start recieving paychecks so that they may document your income. It helps if the new job is a salaried position as well. Even hourly full-time is not too tough to document.

If a large amount of your income is commission, bonus, or overtime based then that really muddies the water and you are probably SOL.

The only way to find out is to speak to a local, reputable lending professional
Best of luck
