Closing cost are fees with buying or selling a home. They Buyer and Seller both have there own fees and they vary depending on your mortgage terms and what you have negotiated with the Seller/Buyer.

They usually are 9% of purchase price for the Seller and 3% for the Buyer. Again, this is an estimate, yours many be higher or lower. This is only as a tool.

Good luck.

We always advise our new buyers that the most important thing they can do is to review their finances accounting for all monthly income and expenses. It's suprising what people learn about themselves if they take this activity seriously. ... more

Jeff Epstein answered:
You can get a home in Dallas. What type of home depends on many factors, such as how much you can spend on a home, what houses are available in the parts of town you'd like to live in, does the property need repairs, etc.

The first step is financial - you need to determine how much you can afford to spend on a house. A lender can pre-qualify you so you have an idea of what price homes to view. Once that's done, determine if there are parts of town you'd like to live in. For example, will you be working? Do you want to be within a certain distance of your work? Or are you more concerned about which school district you're in? Or do you want to be near parks, or shopping? If there are medical needs, do you need to be near a particular doctor or hospital? This is where a good Realtor comes in - I (or many of my peers) can help you find the right house based on your particular set of circumstances.

If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Sincerely,

Jeff Epstein

It depends. There still are products out there that don't require a down payment depending on where you want to live, income limitations and other factors. Why don't you give me a call and we can discuss some options?

Dixon Wong answered:
Hi Ncchong,

First of all, did you send the check to the Title Company or to the owner directly? Did you use a TREC contact?

I hope you used the Title Company - their job is to protect both parties since they act us a third party. If so, contact the title company and they should able to give you a refund on the Earnest Money since the contract was not accepted by the bank for the short sale. You just need to fill out a form called "release of earnest money and get your EM back"

You should talk to the realtor that you worked with on this issue before taking legal action.

Please let me know if you need other help with your home search in Dallas! You can visit my website at www.findyourtexashome.com for homes in the Dallas area.

Thanks

Never ever pay to have someone clean up your credit. THEY CAN'T. I hope you read that and do not fall under there spell. You will have to whether out your credit situation. Pay your bills on time and check your credit every couple months. Don't apply for new credit as it hurts your credit score.

Good luck.

Tina Lam answered:
Unfortunately, the answer is no. Even buyers with good credit history in the US and a locally verifiable income have difficult obtaining conventional mortgages. You could get a hard money loan for up to 60% of the purchase price, but the interest rate isn't as attractive as a mortgage. ... more
