Yes... the buyer's honeymoon is rapidly coming to a close. I preached it for the past 2 years like a crazy man screaming from a mountaintop..

The market is rapidly shifting into a seller's market and all indications point to interest rates headed up. Bad news for buyers... Great news for Sellers.

For those who are sitting on their thumbs and waiting on buying a home for any reason.. you will regret that heavily very soon.

The City of San Antonio is one of Texas’ largest metropolitan areas and the seventh largest city in the United States. San Antonio is fast growing- in fact it has been in the top five for growth in the nation for most of the past decade.

San Antonio has a strong military presence—it is known as Military City USA! Home to the recently renamed Joint Base San Antonio Fort Sam Houston- , Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base are currently the largest installation in the country- over 80,000 military and civilian employees serve more than 200 missions at the Joint Base.

San Antonio is home also to five Fortune 500 companies and to the South Texas Medical Center, the only medical research and care provider in the South Texas region.

San Antonio is a great place to call home!

It has to be 12 months before you can apply for a home equity loan. So, you will need to wait until next year. But, it sounds like you got a great deal! Priscilla

The standard form is a buyer's representation agreement. Almost every agent in San Antonio uses the same form

Bruce Lynn answered:
You want to check with your realtor about this.
There is no contract if you didn't sign the amendment.
Sounds like you are trying to buy a foreclosure.
If that is the case, chances are if you don't sign the amendment there will be no contract ever.
It will change the buyer friendly contract to a seller friendly contract, but they will likely accept no less.

Of course we are guessing here.....we don't have enough details.

Realtors are not a good source for CRIME information;
If we comment on CRIME, RACE, RELIGION, etc. we can be accused of "STEERING", which can cost us our license.

Vino Alonzo answered:
Hi Maria,

If I understand the question correctly, you're asking if someone is on Social SecurityI, can someone else sign on a long with the SSI recipient. If that's the question, the answer is yes, as long as they're eliglble. Also, depending on their tax situation, lenders can "gross up" the Social Security income for easier qualifying. For example, if somone receives $1,000 in Social Security Income, since this income is generally non-taxeable, a lender could consider $1,250 for qualifying purposes.

If you need help with your home loan, please contact me. I have 14 years experience in helping families finance their next home. I am familiar with all loan programs and property scenarios, FHA, VA, USDA, Conventional, Homepath, Short Sales, Bank Owned Foreclosures, etc. I’ll make sure you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision. Customer service and on time closing is top priority. Hope to hear from you soon.

Christine Henderson answered:
I work with clients every week who are moving into the area and they all are surprised at just how competitive the rental market is. If they see a house they like, they know they have to act on it quickly, especially if it is priced under $1300 per month.

When considering prospective tenants, property managers and landlords will review not only your current income but your credit history as well and criminal history if any. They want to make sure you are not only capable of paying rent but will pay the rent in line with your past payment history.

If you want more tips on what you need to know about renting a home, here's a link to my trulia blog

Jesus Soto answered:
It's quite simple,and one of three things should happen:

1-Contract should become cancellable
(Meaning no sale)
2-contract should be renegotiated for appraised value.
3-contract continues with bank financing appraised value, and buyer paying difference between appraised value and contract value out of pocket.

Hope this makes sense. If not, give me a call.

Nowadays a 640 fico score is needed to get a standard loan. The truck repo should not be an issue. I work with a great lender that can help.
