You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

What You Can Do to Improve Your Credit Score

Credit scores, along with your overall income and debt, are big factors in determining whether you’ll qualify for a loan and what your loan terms will be. So, keep your credit score high by doing the following:
1.Check for and correct any errors in your credit report. Mistakes happen, and you could be paying for someone else’s poor financial management.

2.Pay down credit card bills. If possible, pay off the entire balance every month. Transferring credit card debt from one card to another could lower your score.

3.Don’t charge your credit cards to the maximum limit.

4.Wait 12 months after credit difficulties to apply for a mortgage. You’re penalized less for problems after a year.

5.Don’t order items for your new home on credit — such as appliances and furniture — until after the loan is approved. The amounts will add to your debt.

6.Don’t open new credit card accounts before applying for a mortgage. Too much available credit can lower your score.

7.Shop for mortgage rates all at once. Too many credit applications can lower your score, but multiple inquiries from the same type of lender are counted as one inquiry if submitted over a short period of time.

8.Avoid finance companies. Even if you pay the loan on time, the interest is high and it will probably be considered a sign of poor credit management.

It is always best if you take control of your own finances instead of hiring someone to do it for you. Best of luck with repairing your credit.

Consult with her mortgage lender. If she is using FHA gift funds are allowable but there are a few guidelines.

Not a mortgage lender or an attorney, but how did your employer switch you from a salaried employee to a contract one? Especially if you still report to take direction from the same boss/company. Seems like that has been a Georgia Department of Labor and an IRS issue for years. Good Luck!

Good Luck on this objective. I suggest getting/hiring an agent to assist you with this as it is not as easy as it used to be. Rentals and properties are flying off the market these days in those areas. There is not much that you can get for less than $1000 a month in Kennesaw or Acworth. ... more

Fred Yancy answered:
There has been a flurry of media stories regarding the latest housing data that suggest the recent momentum in the housing market has stalled and the industry is heading toward another downturn.

Although the latest monthly housing data showed modest declines, the less volatile quarterly data have continued to show modest improvement. Consequently, there is plenty of evidence for retaining a cautious optimism for a gradual recovery. While the February new-home sales rate dipped a nominal 1.6 percent, sales are still running 11.4 percent above their year-ago level and at the rate expected for the slow recovery. Meanwhile, the inventory for new-homes for sale remains at an all-time record low.

While combined U.S. housing starts lost some ground in March, this was almost entirely due to typical month-to-month volatility on the multifamily side. The fact is that single-family and multifamily starts and permits were all stronger in the first quarter of 2012 than they were in the fourth quarter of 2011, indicating that the market continues to slowly strengthen, albeit in fits and starts.

We are also seeing the long-term improvement in housing conditions continuing to take hold in a growing number of local markets. The April NAHB/First American Improving Markets indicates that 101 individual metros are showing measurable and consistent signs they are heading in the right direction.

Total job growth continues upward, providing added consumer confidence and pushing personal income up.

No one is anticipating that an upward path for housing will run in a straight-line trajectory. The economy is in an uneven recovery and we can expect some corresponding ups-and-downs in the housing market in the months ahead.

However, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) believes that on the whole, we can expect a slow and gradual recovery in housing starts, home sales and the overall housing market in 2012.

We would still need to know the amount financed and the projected interest rates in order to determine the payment.
