I prefer to pick the second one as there is no tenants in place and that might solve half your problem.

I have forgotten what A2 visa actually means. I believe it is some kind of dipolmatic or gov employee visa. Does it allow residency and work, or only entry.
It is not uncommon for loan officers not normally working with intl buyers to not know what they need and don't need. I can give you a referal if you send me an email. You may need a little more down payment, good credit score, and proof of income. You may need 20-40% down payment.

Hi Carlene, The answer is YES.. There are other costs involved with Closing a transaction. This will ALL depend on How the purchaser is Buying the home. Cash, of course, is always the Best, and actually has Less costs at closing. On the other hand, there are Several fees involved depending on the Type of loan one has in place to buy. Taxes are Always Prorated from the Time of closing, meaning, it becomes a Debit to the buyer, and a credit to the seller, up to the day of closing, so the seller has paid their share NO matter what for the year, given you a credit, and come the End of the year, You the buyer will have the Entire year to pay. Please let me know How I can help, and even explain this better to you.

Thanks, Tim Hartwig

PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL!
Do not call an agent who is not easy to reach. (not contact data)
Do not call an agent who does not display their telephone number.

To support what George stated. I do not, and apparently others do not, respond to inquires originating from the 'contact' link or through Trulia email. Pick up the phone and call. This action will reveal the level of service your referral will receive.

If you are serious...call
Why is that so difficult?

An adjustable rate mortgage (arm) is a mortgage whose interest rate can go up, down or stay the same, depending on the terms of the mortgage. Often the year or years are fixed and after that the rate can adjust depending on terms of the note. The rate is often tied to the federal lending rate plus a fixed number of points. ... more

Hart Parris answered:
You can certainly contact the sellers agent directly but remember that you have hired your agent to represent YOUR best interests. I would explain to my agent that I am becoming frustrated and want a status update. Your agent may have a good reason for not pushing and should be able to either give you a satisfactory explanation or make the call and get the information you want.

The seller's agent does not represent your best interests and that is why it is always best to always work through your own agent. Continue to try to work thru him or her and if you aren't satisfied with the results, suggest that you contact the seller's agent and see how your agent responds to that.

If you are still unsatisfied, I would suggest that you speak directly to your agent's Broker to get the help you need before going to the seller's agent.
