If you are the buyer and paying the inspector, yes, you should go to the inspection. Trying to decipher what is inspected and recommended vs being there and have it pointed out to you so that you understand completely, I find it easier to understand when you are present ... more

Do you have continuous employment?

Banks won't approve you for a mortgage without proving stability of employment and income.

Hi Kelly!

I sure do hope you and your husband move here! Charlotte is an amazing city, and is only growing!

The packages that new builders are offering for new construction are as advertised! Typically the price you see online will be the base price (which includes the finished, livable home, microwave, stove, blinds, etc) and you can do a few additions in there. Just count on adding between $5-$10k in the purchase price for all the sweet additions you would want! But overall, it isn't a gimmick or a bait and switch.

If you would like, shoot me an email or call/text me and I will send you some ideas as to what I'm talking about. Look forward to working for you :)

Hello,

If the seller already initiated the deed in lieu process, they may not be able to stop it. It really depends on where exactly they are in the process and if the seller is willing to work with you as far as contacting their lender/foreclosure attorney to stop/delay the process.

My best advice is to get in contact with a real estate attorney who can advise you on the foreclosure process.

The internet is not always correct in reporting the foreclosures. I live in the Ballantyne area and at the moment I am not seeing a lot of foreclosures. If you are referring to commute time to uptown Charlotte, you are looking at about 20-30 minutes in traffice. Give me a call or email me. Would love to tell you more about the area.

The best way to find out information about the crime in a community, is to contact the local police department. Unfortunately, as real estate agents, we are limited as to what we can and cannot say about crime, safety, etc.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me!

James,

withrow downs is a subdivison that was designed for first time home buyers. I have had a few homes listed in there and sold and a couple of buyers that looked inthere as well and one that bought. Like any other area of the country it got hit with the market recession. parts of Charlotte helpd out longer than other parts and since that neighborhood is newer construction, I think the home owers worked harder to keep their homes maybe than other older neighborhoods.

Also check the information you are looking at. There are two withrow downs. One is being finsihed by Ryan homes (which based on lexington is the one i think you are talking about) and the other one is withrow downs II which is a lower priced starter neighborhood that has families looking concnerned with the proximity to the lowes motor speedway and making it harder to sell in there. That one I know becuase the builder has dramatically cut the price of the homes from when they first started is making it almost impossible for anyone to resell their home in there if they did not put a large down payment down....

wlee,

I do nto deal on the mortgasge end of the real estate business....However; I do remeber a few of my frineds being in the same position you were in and being able to borrow against the equity of their house to pay off their credit cards and car loans.

from what I remeber they had to submit who was going ot be paid off and how much was owed to each one...Then the bank deducted that from the debt to income ratio and at closing the attorney ahd to pre write the cehcks out to each of the individual credit card companies to pay the balances off.

Now whether they do that now or not is a question you want to take up with your bank and ask in a general view. Also, how much you can take out f your house is contingent on the value fo the house and the percentage a bank will let you borow against it....

Hope this helps...

Hi Joce!

Welcome to Charlotte! Email me directly with a bit more information about your move. Charlotte is a very fragmented/spread out city, so let me know a bit more about the lifestyle/community type you want, as well as if you will need to be near a certain area. Will you need to be close to work, and if so, where is it located?

Hope to help!

Hello Mrs. Davis,

I would love to speak to you and your husband to get the process started. We can starting working towards getting you pre-qualified for a home loan and start seeing what homes are available in the areas you like.

Most of my buyer's are first timers so I am very familiar with some of the questions that you will have.

Feel free to call/text/email.

I think that is almost impossible to find... There are not many homes in Myers Park that are less than 5 years old. And If they are the land cost would be almost as much as $400K especially if it was built 5 years ago. Lots at that time were going for about $400 - 500K. If someone built a house within the last 5 years in MP they would build a home that's cost would be 4 times land cost. So - this is why I say that would be impossible to find.

If you want a nice new brick home they are building some off Woodlawn Road. You won't have Myers Park Schools but it is only a couple miles away from Myers Park and has what you are looking for in your budget.
