All cash would be around $300k. Banks don't lend on homes without a heater system. Go to Home Depot buy a wall heater and increase the price to $340k-$350k.

Sure; whatever you and the Seller agree to:
On some REO's and Shortsales, the Banks are very agreeable to long Escrow;
I guess they need that long to get their ducks-in-a-row.
If you're worried about it; either put down a DATE, instead of the number of days, or, put down 88 days. (At that point in time, you really don't know when the clock will start.)

Good luck and may God bless

There really isn't a rule of thumb for whether or not a HOA will allow larger dogs. Some will and some won't. You will just have to ask the manager of the HOA of the condos you are looking at. ... more

Hi Novel - There are still 'stated income' loans available for the self-employed but you will need a much bigger down payment and you will pay a higher interest rate. It is unfortunate but all the new regulations for the banking industry have targeted small business owners and the self-employed. It's a shame, we are killing "the goose that laid the golden egg". I wish I had better news, but until we wake up in this country and stop punishing people for being successful, this is the way it's going to be. ... more

Unfortunately only you can decide the downpayment amount based on your financial comfort level. Keep in mind that short sales are sold as is, and generally lenders don't agree to make or credit any repairs. As for purchasing, or walking away, again a decision only you can make based on your finances, wants, needs, lifestyle, will you be happy living there, etc. ... more

Hi Jl,

CC&R's are typically ordered as soon as Escrow opens. Either the Escrow Officer will order them, or the Listing Agent's Transaction Coordinator. I recommend that you speak with an Attorney that specializes in Real Estate law. Be sure to bring all documentation from the purchase of your home with you. Good luck!

Yes, generally speaking it is double. You will have to be ready to sign a quit claim deed.
The lender of your choice should advice you as they verify all details of your and you husband credit.
Please contact me if you would like any help or guidance.
Good luck,

Hello Escrowq,

This matter will have to be spelled out in the Residential Purchase Agreement and agreed to by both Buyer and Seller. Consult with your Agent to determine how your offer should be written to satisfy both Buyer & Seller as well as to conform with Local & State rental/tenant laws. Good luck!

Hello Luny2nl,

If the seller accepted your offer and the bank approved the short sale how did they also offer a loan mod? Something smells fishy.

A land contract might be an option if you have already saved up a decent down payment; a lease-option would be an excellent alternative if otherwise.

I've found many landlord that are struggling with their properties and they will do anything to get the rent today.
Go online to craigslist and call some landlord and negotiate.
You will find it very helpful

Good Luck

Confidentiality. The banks and/or sellers can't divulge any information about the offer or the buyers without written approval from the buyers. That's just the way it is.

If you're the one making the offer, would you want other buyers to know what you'd offered so they could outbid you? ... more

Hi Kareem,

Please see this link below for information & some frequently asked questions regarding the $8,000.00 tax credit available to first time home buyers:

The time period for the credit was also extended when the bill was passed into law, so the credit is now available to buyers purchasing property prior to December 1, 2009 (the deadline is no longer in June).

This credit, combined with low interest rates & great value available, all combine to make this an excellent time to purchase. I'm an agent with Coldwell Banker out of their Sherman Oaks office - if you have any other questions or would like any more information, please email me at or call me at 323-810-7976 - I would be more than happy to help you out.

Thanks, take care..

From a practical point of view "trulia" Questions & Answers, offers practical in the trenches perspective of what the current trends are for buyers, sellers, and agents.

There are many more formal real estate resources, but this format is one that should not be overlooked.

Roxem, our recommendation is to consider Trulia a valid resource. There is much to be learned from this forum.....
