Good Morning Veronica;
1. It is not difficult at all; and you can either pay cash or finance the transaction.
2. Once you find a property and you have an executed contract, most transactions close within 30-45 days.
3. Contact a local Real Estate Agent in the 76119 or 76112 area for a list of foreclosures.
Good Luck!

It is a formality to protect all parties. It is also a "formal" notice to all that you wish to terminate. Your agent is looking out for you.

Scott Butcher answered:
Yes, I can lend to borrowers down to a 600 mid FICO score via FHA funds. Conventional loans begin at a 620 FICO, so your almost there and you wouldn't have to pay Mortgage Insurance unlike FHA would require (if your putting 20% down payment).

Feel free to contact me and I can give you further details. 512-796-7738

Donn Rasch answered:
Jessie,

590 is not a very good score and you will probably get hosed on your rate, terms & fees. In my opinion you would be better served spending the next 6 months raising your credit score. That way you will get a much better rate, which equals a lower monthly payment and or the ability to qualify for a nicer home. I think you have time, the market more than likely won't go crazy in the next 6 months. Just my 2 cents.;>) ... more

Not knowing your overall finances--if you haven't visited with any qualified loan officer(s) yet, consider doing so--see if you do qualify, how much and have your credit score checked as their scoring is often different--if your score needs improvement your loan officer can suggest great ways to quickly improve it--then go from there. ... more

Patrick Thies answered:
A short sale is when the owner of the property owes more then what the property is worth.

The seller lists the property at current market value. When they accept an offer, they take the offer to the lender and ask the lender to approve the offer. If the bank chooses to accept the offer, the lender will take the amount the house sold for and forgive the difference that is owed.

For example: The seller has a $300,000 mortgage. They sell the house for $275,000. The bank gets the $275,000 and forgives the remaining $25,000 that is owed to them.

There is a little more to it then this but that's the jist. The seller needs ot be in a financial hardship position, can not have any other assets and can not receive any money or gains from the sale.

For a buyer, any offer accepted by the seller is subject to bank approval. However, all negotiations are done though the seller not with the bank. It can take months to get a response and buyers should be prepared for a long process. Usually the property is sold as-is, no credits for repairs and in some cases the buyer may be responsible for some costs needed in order to close

Market value is determined by what buyers are paying for the same feature and benefits in the same subdivision. It is a good idea if you are wanting to sell, to get a accurate CMA from a real estate professional. If you are trying to determine how to lower taxes, you will need to get a appraisal completed and submit to the local tax asessor's office.

It's really not just 76179. It's everywhere. It is really a buyer's market right now and if you are in the market to buy you can find a lot of house for your money.

Linda Lorenzo answered:
Laura, there are homes that fit those parameters but you need to narrow down what you want. Are you looking in the Fort Worth area? Where exactly do you want to be? What is your price range? There are not a lot of basements in the area and of course when you add in a pool there are significantly less homes.
I don't work in the Fort Worth area but would be happy to refer you to someone, just drop me a line and I would be happy to assist you.

Bob McCorkle answered:
On the North Carolina contract, and according to North Carolina law, the closing date is as target date, not adrop dead date. If the parties are, in good faith, trying to meet the closing date, the contract is still valid, even if the specific date is not met. Repercussions of the breech of a contract can be severe. You should consult an attorney first if that is your intent.
As far as the "bad agent" is concerned, consider calling the company he/she works for and asking for his/her broker-in-charge. If that person can't get you happy, call the local mls board and investigate the proceedure to file a complaint with the NC real estate commission. You can't cancel a contract because you don't like your agent, even if he/she is bad!

Unfortunately termites do exit everywhere and they can be living anywhere, some in soil, some in wood, etc. Problem areas can and should be treated by professionals and most do offer yearly check up plans. Again, since termites can live everywhere, don't be too alarmed especially if there is no interior damage. What is your agent and or home inspector suggesting--they are your best source of advice as it relates to this particular property. ... more

I suggest that you talk with an attorney about your specific situation. Was this issue addressed during the divorce proceedings?
