You can look it up in the public records if you know how.

I'd be more than happy to assist you (I know how to look the requested info up very quickly and efficiently) as long as the property is in the DFW area!

Send me the address you're interested to my email (kent@kentdills.com) and I'll look it up ASAP!

Best, Kent

The web site should have a "contact us" link on it. Try sending them an email or calling and see what they say.

That's too hard to answer. It's going to depend on the bank and what they are willing to take for the property. The bank will be looking for the best and highest offer. Many times the bank will list the property below market value to get multiple offers and sell for above list price.

You need to find out what similar homes in both size and location are selling for. Make your offer based on what you feel is fair. The bank may counter your offer if they don't receive any better offers.

Ed in most cases you will need 10-20% down, teh only way to know for sure is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker in your area, they can look at your financials and tell yo if there are any programs that fit your needs.

Stephanie,

What is the reason that your broker is giving you for not supplying you with a preapproval letter? There are certain instances where a prequal letter will not work and the seller does want to see a preapproval. Unfortunately this happens to be one of those instances. Are you dealing with a typical seller or a bank on a foreclosure?

Janine Love answered:
Contact your agents broker. Tell him/her what is going on, and ask that they intervene. If you truly have a Contingency Addendum attached to your contract, they should have come to you first giving you the appropriate options. Without doing so, you may have legal options of actually halting the other sale, but you would have to seek legal advice on this..... ... more

Mack McCoy answered:
I don't get it either, Karen.

Is it possible that you are still in contract to buy the home, and that the listing broker's office made a clerical mistake?

What if you were to call up your agent, tell them you noticed your home-to-be is now listed as "active," and ask them to check into the matter?

Then, tell us what you find out, please.

Lee Taylor answered:
In Georgia, we have contingency and contingency with a kickout clause - Texas is probably the same.

You probably got a timely notice that is well within the contractual obligations of the seller - you probably got kickout notice.

if you can not remove your contingency within the agreed upon kickout time frame, then your contract is rejected and you are not penalized (in most cases...)

Bruce Lynn answered:
Potentially....if I understand correctly they are a local company and seem to take a common sense approach to lending. You might want to work directly with a Cendera mortgage officer and we can recommend one if needed.

It will just depend on what the situation was and how that would have affected your loan.

Sounds like you are on the right track.

Patrick Thies answered:
If this is an estate situation, then you are probably dealing with more than one person. It's hard to get everyone on board when the children are involved.

There isn't any set time for a seller to respond unless you put a date for the seller to respond in your offer.
The first time took 6days and so far it''s been 3 days. I know that it's frustrating waiting, but it seems like the selling side doesn't respond quickly. What is the sellers agent saying? Is she waiting to hear from the sellers or just not responding to your agent? You may have to push the selling agent to get you some kind of response so you know where you are at.
