Yes. Social Security and Disability pay is an allowable source of income that you can use to qualify for any type of mortgage. You just need to be able to document the amount and that it will continue for at least 3 years.

Here are the main requirements for using these types of income:

Social Security income must be verified by the Social Security Administration (SSA) or from Federal tax returns. If any benefits expire within the first full three years of the loan, the income may only be considered as a compensating factor.

· The lender must obtain a complete copy of the current awards letter.
· Not all Social Security income is for retirement-aged recipients; therefore,
documented continuation is required.
· Some portion of Social Security income may be “grossed-up” if deemed
nontaxable by the IRS.

Hope this helps!

It is accurate. Town Center living is in more demand and therefore is increasing at a faster pace.

The type of property effects the total assessed value. What kind of property are you interested in?

A large portion of property taxes are used for school budgets. Mercer County had many newer school districts without the assistance from the state in the way of state aid. Just think the average cost to educate one child is over $12,000. Two children in the school system cost that municipality $24,000. Many towns in Mercer County have their own schools from K-12, and are not linked with other towns. ... more

Browse the profiles of a few agents in the area and give a few a call. Work with the one that gives you the best service and you "click" with. Good luck.

I did some research for you and found that only two things sold in Washington Town Center in the last two years. Both of them sold at 199,900 and had 795 square feet.

So, based on the fact that absolutely nothing is selling there I would just move on to some better area. Also, high maintenance fees do not affect appraisals but they do affect resale of the property.

Currently we are finding it harder to get funding for our clients in condo's because of the default rate of the residents who live there. If there is more than a certain percentage of people not paying their condo fees FHA will not lend on it. I would ask the condo association for that percentage before putting in an offer.

Hope this helps,
