Depends on your interest and your budget. Condos and planned unit developments are usually less expensive than home purchases - there is less that you are buying - you are not buying land. However, there is a homeowner's association fee per month to manage the land and other commonly held assets. I usually consider the monthly fee a good deal for the homeowner as the same services would cost an individual homeowner more. You have to come to our area and look to see what your purchasing power will buy you and see what would be of interest to you. A good investment usually depends on LOCATION! Buy a reasonably priced home or condo in the best location you can afford! ... more

Hello RCA888,

Improving the curb appeal will help yield better on your returns than a new roof. Do those thing to your home that help the buyers picture themselves in the property. Items like Landscape front and rear, fresh interior and/or exterior paint and upgrades to the kitchen and baths all increase both the value of the home and the interest from buyers. A good Realtor should not only be able to guide you on these matters but have the contacts to get the job done.

Picking a Realtor isn't hard at all, you just found one.

Hope to hear from you soon,

In general, the commission is a seller's expense ( it appears as a debit to the seller on closing statement).

Both VA loans and USDA loans don't require a down payment. There may also be first time buyer grants available in your area but you really need to contact a local lender they will be a wealth of information for you. Good luck. ... more

So curious if you don't trust the site why are you using it. You need to find a local Realtor who can help you find homes that are currently for sale. I get clients all the time who ask about this or that home they saw on some website and 99% of the time they are not available. A Realtor has access to the most current informtion. ... more

Haig Istamboulian answered:

The answer to that is YES you can still short sell your home. I am guessing you are dealing with a Realtor? Have your Realtor send the offer and any necessary documentation, to the lender IMMEDIATELY and open a line of communication with them.

It is obviously too late to postpone the Sheriff sale (if it happened on the 12th). If for some reason it has not happened yet, talk to someone at the lender and ask them who you need to talk to, to postpone the Sheriff Sale.

If it is too late, don't worry, you still have a 6 month redemption period in order to try and accomplish this. It would have been better if you were trying to sell your home sooner than you did, what were you doing the past few months, was your home listed for a while and JUST got an offer?

Whatever you do, start on Monday and make some calls, or have your Realtor do it. You need to get the offer "in line" at the lender along with their other Short Sales to get the process started. There is still NO guarantee the bank will accept the offer but you never know with a short sale.

Best case scenario would be that the Sheriff Sale has NOT occured yet. Get on the phone and start making some calls to see which department you need to reach and who you need to talk too.

Good Luck!

Hi Timalice,

Yes it is feasable. There are several housing developments in the Crystal Lake school district where you can purchase a home in your price range. I specialize in the Boynton Beach area selling single family homes and condos. I would be very happy to help you find your new home. The first thing you need to do is get prequalified for a mortgage unless you are paying cash. That way you will know how much house you can afford and when you find that perfect house, you will be able to make an offer right away. Please give me a call if I can be of further assistance to you.

It depends on what you are considering the best. If you are looking for the best area for schools or the best area for least crime then the first thing I would check is the school reports for the areas as well as the crime reports for the areas you are interested in. Unfortenately by law we cannot give that advice of what is deemed to be the best, we can only recommend these reports for you to decide on. ... more

Michael Doyle answered:
Jeanie: Yes, to the contrary, there is financing available for mfg homes in the desert. I have several excellent sources that I can steer you to.
What I need to know however, is the subdivisions you are looking at and are you open to any others? I really need to know what your parameters are for a purchase and if you are working with any realtor currently?
I have several nice places for you to consider, but, I need the above before I can recommend we look in these areas. But, bottom line is, financing is available with half way decent credit and above and a few other things.

Please let me know how I may assist you?

Bob Hoerner Mlo 978954 answered:
To start with a sale with financing is always subject to a finial loan approval, as this offers all parties a protection should a loan not be approved. So before addressing what happens it is more important to learn why a loan is not approved.

If it is something that can be overcome by making the lenders UW with providing new or different documents to make the loan, then you move forward with the sale. If it is an issue of the home being purchased not being appraised for sales price then you can go back to seller and see if will take the lesser or pay something in between and you the buyer pay the difference.

If there is no way to get your loan approved, or seller will not accept a lesser value then you have an out for your purchase. This will cancel the transaction and any funds you have paid to the escrow company would be refunded to you.

To help you out I would start by sitting down with a mortgage banker like me to go over your options and do a pre-approved mortgage prior to making an offer. This way we can together go over any type of issues that may come up. Let me know if I can help.
