Ron Thomas answered:
If the Seller is a private individual, they (probably) can require a CASH offer.
Institutional Sellers, (banks and service companies) probably wouldn't try to require that; there would be too much jeopardy.
We have seen Banks favor CASH for Investors, but not overtly.

If a CASH buyer offered $200,000, and a Financed Buyer offered $220,000; which one do you think the Bank would accept.
When all the dust settles; everyone will have their money.

The LISTING does not specify CASH.
That looks like a lot of home for $129!
What does your Realtor say?

Don Groff answered:
Appraisals are always somewhat subjective. The value of a home is what somebody is actually willing to pay for it. Besides that the appraiser needs to show comparable homes that sold for similar amounts. If not the appraisal may have come in lower than your purchase price which does happen at times. Appraisals usually come in close to the purchase price which is where they should as that is what the home is selling for in the marketplace.

You paid for the appraisal for the lender to be OK with what you are paying for the home in reality. The lender wants to know the price being paid for the property is fair and market value and the appraisal shows this.

Hope that makes sense.

Bruce Lynn answered:
Probably based on the purchase price, not on the appraised price.
You can always check with your lender.

You could perhaps pay cash if that is an option, then do a cash out refinance if you can find a bank to do it, but the interest rate will be higher than a normal mortgage loan, and typically they'll only lend up to 80% of the appraised value. ... more

Brent Rice answered:
Michael, This property is a short sale. It shows on the MLS to be Active - Contingent which means that a buyer exists and the parties are awaiting approval from the lender. You could submit an offer if you are really interested. But, it is likely that your offer would be in a back up position depending on the circumstances of the first offer. If you have cash and have some flexibility on your closing date (if needed by the seller), I would imagine that the bank would be very inclined to seriously consider your offer as well. You should have a short sale expert to assist you. I am certified in short sales and have successfully closed many of them in the Metroplex. Please feel free to call or text me your email address and we can discuss the potential to view the property and submit an offer. Thank you!

You really need to contact an attorney. Realtors legally cannot give you any type of legal advise.

Barbara Coker answered:
If you don't have a score, we can still use alternative credit, such as a 12 month rental history, cell phone, insurance, water, power, etc. for an FHA loan. Work with an experienced, licensed loan officer who has a strong FHA background for this because it's not as easy as it used to be.

Good luck!

James Ryan answered:
Truxtc,

You need to talk with your agent or your attorney. We are not able to give you legal advice, plus we have no clue what terms are spelled out in your contract. You might also contact the escrow firm or closing attorney in charge of your EMD account.

Best wishes, Jim

Check with your local zoning and planning department in your area. Some states have grandfather clauses wherein, if it was installed according to the code at the time, you may be exempt. They should be able to give you the answers you are seeking. ... more
