Mindy, Without additional information tis question cannot be answered accurately. Many factors affect the time on the market such as the size of the home, the neighborhood, the features in the home, is it updated, is it near shopping, schools, etc. A good real estate agent can spend a little time with you and give you an accurate answer to your questions.

Thanks,

The bets advice is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker in your area. They can prequailify you at no cost and let you know what programs you quailify for and inform you about the va loan. You may want to try and quailify with your credit and income, if you need his income, his credit will drag you down. Goo dluck with your search. ... more

Brandon,

New construction was a little slow recently but it is starting to pick up back up. Round Rock is very popular and that will help support increased prices.

The Central Texas economy and real estate market is good now and showing great signs of even getting stronger. Now would definitely be the best time to invest before prices start to go up.

Interest rates will go up soon and the $8000.00 tax credit will end soon also.

All the best!

You really need to read your purchase and salea agreement so you are within the dates specified in your purchase and sales agreement. Usually a builder has you put a non refundable deposit down, so dont risk losing your deposit or putting your agreement in default. You can simply ask the builder if he can push back the closing, but it isnt proper to look for a loop hole to hold things up. Your agent should be able to guide you through the process and assist you with closing dates. Good luck with your purchase ... more

Yes. You can buy a home. There's a possibility that you'll still qualify for a loan. If not, owner financing is a viable option. I do these all day long. Check out my site for more details.

Good luck. :)

If there was an issue but the issue has been corrected or mitigated, then it does not need to be noted on the disclosure. If it is a material defect or current issue then it does.


If the seller repaired the water heater then they did not need to disclose that there was a problem.

You can get a CLUE report done on the house to find out if there were any other claims made on the property.

Sam,
Banks have a bottom line, just like everyone else. I had a short sale take 5 months, because the bank would move on the price.

Also, the bank wants to get a good price for the home and not just get what they owe.
Hope this helps.
Jeff

John

For browsing actual foreclosures listed for sale ect.. you may find this useful

The Banks and the Gov. have created sites to provide the public with access to their properties for sale listings..(REO/Foreclosures) and information on the Bid/Purchase process.



Sites like.... http://www.wamuproperties.com/ .... http://www.hud.gov/homes/index.cfm

https://www.citimortgage.com/Mortgage/Oreo/SearchListing.do ... http://www.homepath.com/

The links to these Bank and Gov. sites can be found here.... http://www.mortgagenewsdaily.com/wiki/REO_Database_List.asp http://www.biggerpockets.com/bank-reo.html

If it's Tax sales you're interested in then you may find this search engine useful...

Terri Salyer answered:
Leslie,
How are you?!
I think it really depends on the area-if the majority of homes in a neighborhood have 3 car garages, then that will be best for resale in that neighborhood vs. a 2 car. I would look at the neighborhood as a whole and show the buyer what is pre-dominant. It will be what the majority of other buyers expect in that neighborhood that will make it good for resale...not necessarily what one buyer expects. You could always do a market analysis using the number of spaces in the garage as criteria with most other features being the same and see if it changes the DOM or price significantly.
Good luck-
Terri

Any liens junior to the lien being foreclosed will be eliminated, but there are some liens that are senior to all other liens like IRS liens and tax liens which will still be due.

It depends on how highly desired the area is, and how highly desired the house is. Flood insurance is fairly inexpensive, as you probably already know. Yes you will miss a few buyers, but some are fine with it.

Good Luck!

Walter Rock answered:
The terms for owner financing would be whatever the buyer and the owner negotiate. In general, you might expect the terms to be similar to what you would get from a bank. Like a bank though, a lower credit score means a riskier loan and thus a larger down payment or a higher interest rate would be expected.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks
Walter Rock
