Sure Roy -

What is your price range? No guarantees, but I wll take a look for you!

The rental market in EB is hot and there is not too much available. As an expert in this market, if it is out there.. i will know about it!

Send me some more details and we can take a look.

You should be looking at your Loan papers:
I have heard that one lender used the figure 20% when talking about eliminating the PMI;
I have also heard of 21% or 22%.
Not sure how they can leagally do that, but the Buyer signs the papers....

Good luck and may God bless

Hopefully you have an attorney because usually the bank will NOT allow the sellers in a short sale to keep pushing back the closing date. Banks usually give no more than 30 days for you to get a mortgage and close once the short sale is approved . Sometimes they will give a 2-3 week extension but no more than that.

I would have your attorney check with the sellers attorney and get some sort of written proof that the BANK has authorized these delays. I have a sneaking suspicion that there may be more to this than the sellers just not finding a place to live. Get on the phone with your attorney ASAP.

If they bank did indeed allow these long delays in closing, you may just have to pay to extend your loan lock. One of the many pitfalls in buying a short sale property.

Eugene -

I have worked with a few other investors recently that are in good shape. There are some good buys right now in East Brunswick. 80k is a great down pay which could keep you in a positive cash flow until a sale at a profit.

Give a call or email and we can discuss further.

Hello. As soon as possible with a July 1st occupancy. Price depends on area of East Brunswick and if there is a garage and basement. Also if renter will be responsible for lawn care. Some landlords charge a bit more money to the tenant and have the lawn serviced by a professional so you can rest assured your lawn is kept up.

Hello Carlyn,
It is best to have a local agent meet with you and go over a comparative market analysis of homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood and that are similar to yours. Agents have access to the multiple listing service so can tell you the most accurate information about the market.

You can also click on the "Local Info" tab at the top of the screen here to give you a brief overview. And, you can perform a search on some real estate web sites for recently sold homes in your area; not properties that are just currently for sale.

Hope that helps.
Good luck to you!

Hi Lyn,
Your best bet is to contact a real estate agent that has access to the Middlesex MLS and can look up the recent sales in East Brunswick. If you're looking to get an idea of what your home is worth, an agent can provide a specialized analysis based upon the characteristics of your home to give you a price range in which your home should sell for. If you're interested in finding out more about recent sales in East Brunswick and home values in your area, feel free to contact me.

X should be an actual number and in most cases the lender will allow a sellers credit to go towards closing costs.

Elva Wormley answered:
Hi Cortney,

Taking out a 401k loan will not hinder your loan approval. With FHA, the 401k payment is not included in your debt-to-income ratio calculations. There are some programs, however, that will include the 401k payment in the debt-to-income calculations, and so you would have to qualify with that payment, as well.

Check with your loan officer.

Best wishes,

Good morning, Alicia,

It's just about a half-hour after midnight, and Rath Lane should be very, very quiet. Rath is a lovely street with spacious well-kept houses. Yes, school buses do go on the street, but they travel on a great many streets in East Brunswick. We have, in addition to our excellent schools here, a very generous transportation system supplied by our Board of Education. Rath Lane is not so heavily trafficked as Dunhams Corner Rd., Milltown Rd., or Ryders Lane. Please feel free to call me on my cell: 732-991-6299 or at my office at Davis Realtors: 732-254-6700 x 128. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have about our community or schools. My three children have graduated from our system, and I am honored to sit on the board of the East Brunswick Education Foundation. ... more
