Hi Eric.

That is definitely a mortgage question. So I have forwarded your question to a Senior Mortgage Planner, Sean Callan, with Drew Mortgage (scallan@drewmortgage.com). Once he get's back to me with the answer, I will pass it along to you.

Enjoy the day.

May, If I understand when you say seller, I assume you mean seller of a condo you are buying. It's really neither good nor bad. Maybe he/she is trying to be helpful; maybe the attorney already knows the building, maybe, maybe, maybe. If you hire him/her, they would work for you. That said, if you have a hesitation, it's always best to follow your instincts. I suspect you are going to want to work with someone you feel completely comfortable with particularly if you are a first time buyer.

Best of luck. It's exciting buying a piece of property.

I answered in the Cambridge section, but wanted to catch you here as well. I have lived here forever and rented apartments to students here in a 38-year family business. I LOVE the area and highly recommend researching crime rates-- I live right by the Divinity school in Cambridge and can walk to Harvard. The location is great and I feel safe. I'd love to answer any questions or point you in the right direction! I love VALUE and SAFETY! :)
Congrats,

Usually it would be a bit more if the unit is furnished. I would remove the electronic and just keep everything else.

Yes they are. Both Fannie and Freddie charge risk adjustments to cash out loans. I believe the charges start when the loan is more than 60% of value. Lower credit acres can add to these adjustments. ... more

Honestly is all depends on what you are looking for in your neighborhood. Each area of the city is very different. Back Bay, Beacon Hill, North End and South End all have their own personalities. I would explore each and see what fits you best.

You may also want to venture across the Charles River into Cambridge and Somerville.

Hi Nick,

They are correct about the co-signer, however the amount is incorrect. It varies based on the landlord. However, if you are able to produce both proof of you current bank records as well as find someone with good credit and makes over at least $60K, you can certainly find a place!

Best of luck, if you need more advice, please feel free to contact me.
