Yes you qualify for a mortgage as long as you meet the other requirements. The interest rate you get will vary lender to lender. Check out The Lenders Network they can refer you to a few lenders so you can compare rates. ... more

Closing costs on $135,000 will likely run around $4,000 which is 3% of the purchase price. What will push this amount higher are prepaid HOA dues, special assessments, and capital improvement fees and transfer fees which are negotiable in the HOA Addendum. ... more

This is a time when a real estate professional is worth their weight in gold!

Mobile/manufactured home sales and mortgage loans are a niche market in the Phoenix area with only a fraction of agents and lenders doing business in the arena.

If you don't have an agent of your own (which I highly recommend) you might pose your question to the Seller's agent. One of our jobs as agents is to identify possibilities of financing when we list a property for sale.

If neither you nor the Seller have an agent, I suggest the person "here" does some investigation to locate agents. The old fashioned way is best, driving the neighborhood and general vicinity in search of "for sale" signs. Call them. Agents will be the best source of information in finding a suitable lender.

Gird your loins! It will be a challenge!

Best of luck!

Ask your agent to remove your property listing for you. If you added it yourself somehow, you'll have to figure out the syndication mechanism and attempt to "kill" it there. That's really the best you can do. There is no add, edit, or removal feature for the public. ... more

I would love to assist you and you and your family in the home buying process. I am deeply appreciative of the sacrifices made by our Veterans and so I offer my Veteran clients a very large commission rebate. I credit my Veteran home buyer clients two thirds (2/3) of the commission paid to me at closing. This most commonly is 2% as sellers typically offer a 3% commission.

I would love to have a conversation with you to see where you are in the process and how I can assist. I believe with a little more information I may be able to help you solve your problem.

Thank you

Contact an agent in your area for a no-cost market analysis. That's the only way to get a true indication of value aside from an appraisal which will set you back around $450. Do not rely upon computer generated models - they have no bearing on reality. ... more

Hi Jean,

If you weren't able to find anything that fits with your vacation rental needs, please feel free to get in touch with me. Finding the right rental that fits your needs can be hard even if you have tons of time to look. New places come up all the time that are really amazing to look at, so that's something to keep in mind. Let me know if you have any questions or if you want to see anything specific. ... more

I love Marley Park because of its BEAUTY! I have walked into so many of these homes due to my background in new-construction, and Ashton Woods homes are beautiful inside and out! On top of that, the community is full of beautiful parks, green fields, and even schools!

I've had my real estate license in AZ for 28 years but have never used it. Now I am going to use it but really don't know where to begin. Would like to "specialize" in "adult" housing which what I am familiar with. Where do I begin other than finding a broker (which I think I already have). ... more

There should definitely be pet-friendly homes in the Sun City area! Your best bet is to team up with an agent. To do so, use the tab at the top of the page.

Bill Ormsby answered:

I have not seen many rent-to-own that turned into owning and be very cautious before you commit to anything long term.

Owning may be a better bet, especially on a fixed income, since the payment remain fairly stable except for changes in taxes and insurance.

I have worked with lenders that are well versed in FHA and VA loans with lower down payments requirements and also have experience using down-payment assistance programs. In some cases buying a home was actually less out-of-pocket than what it would have cost for the total move in costs for a new rental.

Let me know if this helps!
