Dan Tabit answered:
Straight Path,
Yes. If an appraisal comes in at a surprise amount, your agent can review the appraisal and discuss the comparables used and suggest better ones if they exist. Whether the bank accepts the new information is up to them. Banks are cautious and not likely to accept a huge variance unless there is a significant mistake.
I hope this helps.

Oklahoma City's market is great. If houses are priced right, they are selling quickly. Prices are lower in some areas than they have been in the past and nterest rates are wonderful.

FHA loans are not Credit Score driven:
They look at the Debt to Income Ratio.
Interestly enough, a lot of people who have lower credit scores, also have a bad ratio.

Why would you open your property up to an unknown person, Think logically here and say what if this person uses my home for illegal use, or they are hiding from law enforcement. Homeland security issue would apply also, how do you know if they are not a terrorist if they are not on the grid to begin with! How would you feel if 6 months from not you see this person on the news for having committed a terrorist act in your area! ... more

I don't understand your consternation; 20% down is fairly normal for investment properties.

I have worked with a Mortgage representative in California, (they can do loans anywhere in 50 states) and he might be able to answer you better.

I highly recommend him: his name is Shane Milne, and he's is probably with his family because of the weekend. You might try e-mailing him at:

Good luck and may God bless

Scott Godzyk answered:
If you need to sell your house and you are looking for a new one, the best choice in most cases is to find a seller that will give you a home sale sontingincy on your purchase contract, basically the purchase is contongent upon you closing on your home, you agree on price and terms but have a 48 hour first right of refusal, so if anothert buyer comes along without any contingincies, you are given 48 hours to remove your contingincy and move tyowards closing or can withdraw and get your deposit back.

Good luck with your sale and new purchase

Ron Thomas answered:
you should have many sources for that infomation. Your Agents is a good source, but I would recomend knocking on a few doors in your prospective neighborhood, introducing yourself and asking them about where they live. This will uncover many thing for you, including whether you want those people as neighbors. The local police department will answer your questions too and they will be honest. good luck. ... more

When we attend brokers open we try to give our honest feedback. Even more so when the Realtor is from our office because we all benefit when an agent sells a home. I think most Realtors would give good feedback. One of the purposes of a brokers opne is to give you unbiased feedback. ... more

You should never worry. A week is not that long of a time to go with out any calls in todays market. Houses at different tears get different amounts of traffic. Just keep working with your Realtor and have her check the comps for your area and price it accordingly. Good luck to you. We are seeing a lot more activity now that the weather is warming up and school is close to being over. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
What does your agent say? What is the market like in your area? This time of year the market is heating up (here in CO and probably most other parts of the country too). I would keep it on through the peak "selling season". You might want your agent to give you an updated CMA to see what has sold recently, and see if you're still priced well.

Have you had many showings? If so, what was the feedback? Is there anything you can do to make it more attractive to buyers? If you haven't had many showings, then it's likely because you're priced too high. Good luck!
