Mike, begin your discussions early with some of the local real estate lending agencies in Huntsville (credit unions, etc...) Some of these manage their lowns in-house, are finding some difficulty finding crecit0worthy people to loan to. You may do better than with a larger firm. Thre is no cost or obligation of running through the pre-approval process (except your time). Assuming your jobs have been offered on a stable basis, I would think you will be in very good position to secure a prime real estate loan for your purchase. ... more

As a Real Estate consultant, I would strongly advise you to address your options with a trusted mortgage lender. Questions like: Can I sell my existing home and break even, make a net to use on a downpayment on your future home in Huntsville, or will you have to bring money to the closing table? Am I eligible for a bridge loan? It is also important in this mix to get the advice from a trusted Real Estate Agent about the marketable value of your home along with the days on market to sell, to help you plan a strategy. If you move is imperative for a job, then you may have to rent temporarily in Huntsville unitl your home sells. If you are "in the red" on your equity, you may need to lease your home and wait to purchase a home in Huntsville when you are "in the black" for a sale. This situation can be solved in some way, so contact the right advisors and it will take the stress off you as you plan the move. Best of luck! ... more

Days on Market are slightly higher, volume is about flat against last year. Some areas have experienced an increase and, while we have seen 2 years of strong price growth (8-10% each year) we're not in a down market as the majority of the country is. We're calling it a "Buyer Pause" market--and expect it to resume over the next 12 months as acceleration of our incoming jobs from the recent BRAC come through. ... more
