as a Realtor, when I list a house I give my seller projections on the selling costs, then when we have an agreed upon contract I again redo the sellers closings costs with the exact dates and agreed to expenses - part of a proper listing presentation is to review those numbers with you before you list your home so you know where you are headed - I would be happy to help - Linda Lloyd - Acorn Realty (479)855-2280... more
Absolutely, in fact I encourage all sellers to get pre-approved prior to selling their home so that they know what amount they can be qualified for on their next home.
I would be happy to pre-approve you when you are ready.

It is very important that you find yourself a realtor that works for you in your absence. I work hard for my clients. My plan is to advertise on numerous websites and local newspapers. In addition Open Houses/Realtor Open Houses, are a way to get interested people in to see your home. If I may help. Please call 931-200-8058... more
There is no "correct" answer to this question. Gas and Oil have traded back and forth for years as the less expensive option and nobody can predict with accuracy which way it will go next. It could be a major investment to shift that never pays off in the long run, and which you will likely never be able to establish if it was what sold your home. If you have a lot of people saying "boy, I would have bought that house if it was only gas heat", then maybe...but that's not very likely. Now, if you had electric heat, that might be a different story. Best of luck on the sale of your home...... more
As long as when the appraisal is done, the house meets FHA or Fannie Mae guidelines it will be fine. Your Realtor should be able to tell you if it needs any work to meet loan guidelines when selling. If it does meet guidelines for getting financing on it, the seller credit will definitely help with the selling process. Please call anytime with further questions.
If you sell your house for less than what you owe, it is a Short Sale. Your lender(s) has to approve the Short Sale and you have to prove financial hardship before they will approve it. It is usually 2 years before you can purchase again - unless you pay all cash. However, if you do a Short Sale (proving financial hardship) you wouldn't have the cash to pay all cash.
