Hi Hmrhea,

Fantastic program which allows you to finance the renovation costs for the house and only have a 3.5% down payment. Depending on your financial situation, a lender may also have access to a conventional loan product which also includes renovation financing. If you don't have much cash to work with, an FHA203K is a good option.

Good luck! - Robert Greenblatt

The best answer to this question is going to be provided by either your local loan officer or your real estate agent. They are going to be much more familiar with any governmental programs that you can qualify for. ... more

A person who's retired may buy a house either by paying cash or by qualifying for a mortgage. A mortgage lender will want to know how much income you have (social security, pension, IRA accounts, stocks/bonds/dividends, etc.). If you're thinking about getting a mortgage, start by going to the local bank you deal with and ask them to "pre-qualify" you for a mortgage. This service should not cost you anything, and you won't be obligated to use that bank if you do decide to get a mortgage but want to shop around for the lowest interest rates. ... more

Assuming you have a VISA to be here and work, not hard at all. Find a great local lender and discuss your situation with them, and if you meet the basic qualifications apply and get approved. I work with many international clients all the time and it just comes down to adding their visa status to the standard qualifications. Best of luck. ... more

Also consider credit repair. Ask your Realtor or mortgage professional if they have a trusted credit repair firm that can help you improve your FICO score. Sometimes it takes paying down just a few credit sources and your score jumps very quickly. ... more

It really depends on the size of the house in square footage , the lot size & the amenities. Every house will be valued differently. However the homes currently for sale , under contract or recently sold in Winding River have taxes ranging from from the high $6,000 range for a ranch, the $9,000 range for a standard colonial and as high as $13,000 range for the larger homes. ... more

It is not too soon to get a preapproval for a mortgage if you are planning to move by the Summer. Moreover, it is not too soon to start looking for a home.Most buyers start looking months in advance and closings typically take place 60- 90 days from the time you actually find a home that they like.I sell condos, townhomes & single family homes in your area so if you need help finding a home please feel free to contact me. It is important to check to find out what type of loan you are preapproved for ahead of time if you are looking for a condo/ townhouse.If you are buying with an FHA loan keep in mind that not all communities are FHA approved so your choices may be limited. If there are certain communities that you are interested in I can look them up for you to check.

As a former sales professional for this builder, I think you are making a wise choice to buy a new home at Towne Lake in Sayreville. Kaplan Companies is a good builder and the homes are well built. They have appreciated steadily since they first opened up for sales a few years ago.

The floor plans are very well designed and the community is well laid out. This will be a great long term investment for you. Go for it. Prices are low and rates are low and Sayreville is a good place to live, and Kaplan is a good builder. Enjoy your new home at Towne Lake.

Deborah Ross answered:

Working with an agent, you will have access to homes in the multiple listings and you will have the agent's expertise in matching you with a selection of homes that meet your criteria.

My agency is in Holmdel, NJ, but I have clients in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex counties. I would certainly be able to find you something in Sayrville, if that's where you want to stay.

This is a perfect time to move up into your dream home. Prices are still down, along with interest rates.

If you're interested, get in touch and we can meet to review the specifics of what you are looking for. I hope to hear from you.
