In a hot buyer's market you can ask sellers for closing cost assistance. However, if you are on a hot seller's market you'll have a hard time asking for closing cost. Sellers typically receive multiple offers and they will select the most appealing offer. IF you must have closing cost assistance then there are ways to make your offer appealing by making an aggressive offer and terms BUT you have to be comfortable with that. I would suggest that you consult your agent.

There are many factors to getting qualified for a loan, the credit score alone is not enough and also there are a number of different programs that you can apply for depending on your situation.
Please send me your personal email and I will forward my lender's info to you.
He is the best I've ever worked with and knows all the programs in TX.
He is always available to answer questions and if there is something he can't do he will refer you to the right person.

Kind regards,

Mike Sullivan answered:
You might want to contact your tax assessor's office....generally a commercial zoning approval will add to the value of the home. A residential use may (or may not) ba allowed for this property, the tax assessor would know for sure. Personally I would not want to change the zoning, rather see if a residential use is permissable for the property....hope this helps. ... more
