Check with OHFA. They usually have a list of landlords or properties that will accept Section 8. Many rental properties advertised will note if they take section 8 or sometimes you just have to call and ask. ... more

The areas that are likely to appreciates are the ones with the most sought after school districts:
#1 Edmond
#2 Deer Creek
#2 Midwest City especially for Tinker AFB
#3 Putnam City North, and Piedmont
#3 All of Norman due to OU
#4 Moore and Yukon and Mustang
But mostly all parts Oklahoma City in the Newer Additions will increase in value over the next five years, The other I mentioned to you are going to escalate faster, and this is just my opinion and CMA'S

John Phillips answered:
A buyers agent in my opinion is a Realotr that will listen to what is being told to him by the buyer, their needs, concerns, how much they want to invest in a new home, this is a must and do not go out of their boundries unless otherwise told, help get their mortgage process started, do not complain, make sure the whole process goes smoothly, it is a must that the Realotr stay upbeat and keep a positive mental attitude at all times and be appethetic: If you are asked be prepared to show or produce names of past clients ... more

Karen Moseley answered:
That actually depends on the lender. I did one recently in which the lender decided in only 2 days if they would accept the offer. This bank determined a short sale by each offer-not certifying a short sale on the property to begin with. Closed in 45 days. Some lenders will take months. Most of my buyers do not want to wait months and will not look at some of the bank owned properties which take that long. There are too many houses on the market to wait that long.

You submit an offer to the seller. They can accept or reject and then the bank decides. Your realtor can help you with all the details.

John Phillips answered:
Most of the closing cost are set by the Title company, some of the lender fees are negotiable, I have a Lender that will actually pay part of your closing cost. The Termite inspection is always arround $100.00 and depending on the size of home you buy the home inspection normally runs on the average of $250.00. Your homeowners insurance is shopable, you want to get the best deal you can. Now most of the fees are not negotiable but you can ask the seller to pay your closing fees in the contract and 90% of the time I get this done.
I hope this has answered your questions,
I you have other questions or If I can hlep you locate your new home I would appreciate the opportunity

Thank You

Joe Pryor answered:
Too many to name but make sure that you have a patient and dedicated agent to assist you. Your first home is all about investment. if you want a better second home that is accomplished on that first buy because that is where you can start with equity, especially in this market. make sure your agent recommends multiple lenders, inspectors, and title companies. You don't want the agent to decide on just one because you can never be sure if you are going to get fair and ethical treatment. The surprises you don't want are after the sale rather than before. Too many times when i do short sales I here true horror strories and I come to understand that they made a bad decision. Also interview agents and get referrals from people you trust on who to choose. if you are not being treated properly, fire them and move on. When I work with first time buyers I send them to my youtube channel for a ten part series on being a first time buyer. The more knowledge you have the more questions you can ask to get the first home you have been dreaming about. ... more

Jennifer Weaver answered:
The average house was listed at $65 per sf, and sold at $63 per sf and on the market an average of 73 days. It will make a difference if you are referring to the neighborhood east of Council Rd. versus west of Council, but I did both comps so you can know. If you would like, I can email you the market analysis report and go over each one of the sold houses with you. There was a total of 25 houses sold in that area since September and I took out the lowest and highest comp. My email is jpoch@pldi.net if you want to send me your email or you can call me at 405-370-3886 and I be happy to talk with you or show you any houses in that area as well. There are currently 22 houses that are available with a range of sf and different options.

Thank you,

Why are they keeping the money, did they tell you? If you had an inspection period and canceled in time it seems they should refund the money. A letter from an attorney might be next.

UB Home Team answered:
If the selling and your lending bank will approve, you may be able to purchase the home using an FHA 203k "rehab loan". There are some "select lenders who specialize" in these loans, throughout the metro.

If your current Lender does not utilize the 203k process, you may need to switch the Lender. Your Realtor should be able to direct you to such Lenders. If you are not currently working with a Realtor and/or Lender suggestions, you may contact us through our website (below), by using the"quick question" link.

Best of luck!
