Jeff,

North Andrews Gardens in Oakland Pak (East Ft Lauderdale area) would be a great place to start your searchWith rates at such an advantageous low and rising rental rates in the area this would be a wise investment property. If you like I could send you some potential properties. You can send me your email and I'll be glad to send you some options.

We are an optimistic bunch by nature and while I can't remember every discouraging a buyer in that way, I have recomended in the past to some property owners that it might not be the best time to sell. That is not the case today!

Keith Jean-Pierre answered:
Depends on what the situation on the home is. If the house has multiple offers, I use an escalation clause (allows bidding to take place without always consulting buyer).

If there is only your offer, I would suggest do the comparable research VERY well. The market has completely changed in many places, and multiple offers in a few days is not unheard of. Good luck with your purchase. ... more

Fred Glick answered:
Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, Jumbo. Too much detail to describe differences but as of April 1, you must have 640 credit scores and a 43% debt ratio for automated underwriting.

There are no stated loans anymore and you usually need 2 years of tax returns if you are self employed that are averaged on the net. Also, all the money must be in the bank for at least 3 months.

Contact a mortgage broker to discuss your situation.

Is this a trick question?

If its HIGH and/or a shorter term (20 or 15 yrs), the less loan amount you'll qualify for, thus the less home you'll be able to purchase.

Russ Ravary answered:
You are only going to qualify based on your income alone. Just doing the calculation in my head you make about $30 -33,000 a year. Roughly that is good for about a $100-110,000 loan. Best bet is too start paying those loans on time for a year to get your husbands credit scores back up ... more

Marta Rosario answered:
As a Realtor when I meet with a client per showing I print out an MLS sheet with all the information of that property so my client can keep track of the houses and the details. Ask your agent to give you the same thing and write notes on it. That's my best advice to you.

Marta Rosario answered:
I always recommend for the buyer to be home for an inspection so they can see and be explain by the inspector what the house may need improvement on or what needs to be fix right away. If you are the seller I recommend not to be there because you have some personal attachment to the house and the sellers takes it offensive when the inspector find things wrong.

I assume that you are talking about your loan. You are paying back whatever you took the loan out for plus interest.

Keith Jean-Pierre answered:
If the appraisal comes back high enough it is a possibility. You would need to draw up the contract with the option to have xx amount of closing costs covered. If the home does not appraise for the value of the purchase price plus the closing cost credit, you will get only what the appraisal was for. So for example purchase price of $250,000 + $5,000 closing costs but only appraises for $252,000, you will only get $2,000 toward closing costs. ... more
