Yes you should talk to a mortgage broker and find out about your options. Maybe FHA? That only takes 3.5% down.

Jackson Willis answered:
They're probably concerned that you may not be interested in the home when you know about the damage. I would guess that they can't afford to lose money on the sale,a nd you asking follow up questions about the damage has concerned them when it comes to that. You should try to contact them again and tell them that you're currently very interested. That way they won't be as concerned. Either way though, you may be dealing with a tough sale. You should probably keep looking in the meantime just in case.

I do not want to step on your realtor's toes. He/she may have another suggestion. I would prepare an addendum and go back to the seller. The addendum would state that the seller cannot meet the dates agreed upon in the accepted offer, and agrees to extend the dates to start after their daughter moves out. As an alternative, the seller could make arrangements for your inspection team to have access. ... more

Thats a question that I am not going to touch. If you came to me and said: "I like "neighborhood x", have the homes in there appreciated?" I could look at the historical data from years past and give you an answer yes or no and an average percentage of how much. Since this question is about 2 months old, I would like to know if you have decided to buy or have you decided to keep renting. ... more

If a bathroom has a sink, toilet and a shower or a tub it is considered a full bath. You do not have to have both a shower and tub.

Wow most of these responses are self promoting. I am sure that you can find those criteria in that budget. This question is so old now but, I am interested to know if you made the move and if you found a satisfactory house for the money. I don't know if you would come back on here to share that info but my curiosity has me wondering. ... more

Depends on the listing agreement, what does the listing agreement state?

Buyers typically will factor in a larger cost to do the work themselves than if you went ahead and put in the wall, so I would suggest adding the wall yourself vs reducing the price. In the end, odds are you will net more money and sell quicker. ... more

Kelly Garrison ABR, CRS answered:
Schuyler, it sounds like your lender is forgetting that he is working for you! Did your lender even explain why it's going to be another 30 days? Have you talked with your lender's supervisor? If you choose another lender, be sure that the seller agrees to extend the closing and that Realtors, the closing company, etc. are all aware. Get it in writing! Choosing another lender may mean you paying for a new appraisal so weigh all the "negatives" of changing lenders before making that final decision. If changing lenders doesn't jeopardize your Contract on the home... take your money elsewhere! ... more

I see the "rate and review" section that people can fill out, but never any actual reviews. Do people just not bother?

Most lenders can work with a credit score of 620 and higher and there are a few that say they can work with lower scores.

I have seen pre-approvals from many different states. Check with the lender you got the pre-approval from and they will be able to give you the best answer.

I am a 67, single and disabled lady. My monthly income is from Social Security Looking for a nice home in the 74136 area. Can only afford $400 per month. Am a responsible person and need a hand up...not a hand out. Have been renting for 10 years and never been late. Want a Total electric home, garage, fenced yard, appliances,inside utility with washer and dryer. My furniture is very nice and I have large furniture. Queen size bed, night table & triple dresser in a solid cherry wood. Also have a wood computer table for my PC and a printer on the shelf below. My dining table is a light cherry solid wood with 4 matching shaker chairs. Large bookcase, entertainment center & TV in living room -- also a TV in my bedroom. Lovely sofe with a matching wing back Victorian chair. Lamps, many framed pieces of art. I live in a dangerous neighborhood & men have attempted to kick in my front door several times. My Miniature Schnauzer, Wolfgang, Jr.'s barking has always saved me from harm with his loud barking. He is a rescue dog and well trained. IS THERE ANYONE THAT WILL HELP ME. The reason my credit rating is bad is because my identity was stolen and my Bank of Oklahoma account has been hacked 4 times in the many years I have been banking with them. Am in the midst of a Family Probate, a lawsuit, getting my first book published and will have more money in the future, but truly want to move before June...I need to have a surgery and would love to be settled in my new home. My Church is Boston Avenue United Methodist Church and I have excellent references. It humbles me to ask for someone to help me get into a nice home and I have truly hopeful that this happens very soon. Thank You. ... more
