First, I would recommend talking with someone at your bank about qualifing for a mortgage. If you don't have anyone I can email you a list of lenders. When you know what you qualify for it will be easy to find the perfect home you are looking for! Feel free to call me anytime! 918-645-3795 ... more

Chris Martin answered:
First, you likely would not qualify as first-time homebuyers because you jointly own a home right now. Your current monthly mortgage payment would be taken in to consideration as debt when applying for a new mortgage.

The closing costs on a cash-out refi of your current home would be similar to the costs of paying private mortgage insurance (PMI). You need to re-visit that scenario to see if it accomplshes what you intend it to.

The fact that you are offering your current home rent free to a relative actually decreases your purchasing power. You should probably just consider a straight conventional mortgage at these ridiculously low fixed interest rates and not get into a refi and a new purchase at the same time.You will create unnecessary debt for yourself.

Oh, and call me. I can help you with the purchase of a new home in the Tulsa area!

First of all; any and all questions should be directed to your BROKER; that is what he is there for.
Secondly, as the BUYER, you do not disclose anything; the Seller does.

VA loans are one of the best types of loans you can get! And so they should be to honor the service that you have preformed for our country! Please let me know what type of home you are interested in. My company pays closing costs, and since the VA will pay your down payment you would have little to no out of pocket expense.

Brene Reed,

According to the tax records there have been 2 properties SOLD over the last 6 months, one for 64k and another for 72k. Averaging these sales would put this area around 68,000 for a condominium.

Hope this helps,

Without having more information about the property, it is hard to say for sure, but it could be a corporate/bank owned property that the price is being lowered in order to generate offers. The condition and location of the property are probably factors. ... more

Mario Avila answered:
I'm not sure about getting a list of banks. Your best bet might be contacting Realtors who deal with bank owned properties and REO's. An agent in my office does lots of them. His name is Randy Pepper and his number is 918-894-0204. He would be a good place to start. ... more
