Hello Jenn,

I defenetly recomend to you to get yourselves pre-approved first by a Mortgage Lender or Bank, this way you know exactly how much home you can afford, If you are more that 30 days removed from actually purchasing your home there is nothing wrong with "tire kicking" looking at models et., I also recomend after you get pre-qualified and are ready to enlist the help of a buyers broker to help you look and guide you through the hunt and the contract process.

You should defenetly feel comfortable with both your Lender and your Buyers Brokers, you should feel they are trustworthy and are in touch with your needs to be part of your Team.

I would interview a few pro's until you find the right person's to work with.

Best Wishes,

This is a difficult situation. If however, your take home pay is less than your monthly mortgage payment, you really cannot afford the property. It sounds like you may have had an option 2 year ARM or something similar and are now facing a high reset payment. The market is weak and after paying a 6% commission for realtor services, you will need to bring $$ to the table to sell which you likely do not have. Therefore, you either a) foreclose or b) attempt to have the bank modify the terms of your loan. Start with (b) and if the bank says you must miss a payment then do so. The realty is that you cannot really afford the property and there is little point in burning through whatever savings you have to keep your head above water. Don't feel like your situation is unique--it is the same circumstances for millions of home owners across the country currently. ... more
