Try these neighborhood association websites.

Hoover has it's own facility for the city and it is located near Galleria Mall.

I don't think that Regions offers the FHA 203(k). Prospect Mortgage is the 2nd largest FHA 203(k) lender in the country though. I have closed a lot of 203(k) loans in Alabama. At Prospect Mortgage, we have our on in-house draw department. That allows us to offer both the Streamline and Consultant versions of the program. Most of the mortgage companies that do offer the 203(k)'s have to transfer their loans immediately after closing to another lender to handle the draw. This means that most of them only offer the Streamline version of the program.

The lease purchase homes in Hoover range from $225,000 on up. Is this in your price range or have you spoken to a mortgage lender? Most sellers are requiring a down payment from $5,000-$10,000 and a monthly payment that ranges from $1500-$4000. Do you know if you can close on the property between 12-24 months? Also, a seller will want to know details of your financial situation and if you can pass a credit check. I currently do not handle lease purchase properties but feel free to contact me via email for a list of homes available.

Don Tepper answered:
Quick answer: Ask your Realtor.

Slightly longer answer: Make an offer.

Still longer answer: It's not unreasonable. If there are comps for sale at 314 and 319 (they're not really comps since they haven't sold), that means those houses are worth LESS than 314 and 319. Otherwise, they would have sold. The real question is: Are there comparable properties that have SOLD in the past 3 (or, at most, 6) months? Those are the ones to look at.

But if those houses at 314 and 319 are truly similar to yours (same neighborhood, similar age, similar style, similar size, similar lot size, similar condition), then the homes you're looking at are worth less. How much less? Impossible to say.

Recognize, however, that the sellers may not be able to accept, say, 310 for the property. That's their problem. Your problem is making sure you don't overpay.

Again: Check with your Realtor.

Hope that helps.

Each condo complex has its own association. Each association establishes its own fees and what they cover. If you have a specific address you want to inquire about, I'd love to help you and get that information to you.

Julie Norwood answered:
I would definitely suggest making a low offer and checking to see if they accept, that way you can go up to the max that you would be willing to pay for the house. Its always better to start low, most likely they would be willing to accept it if the house has been sitting. Hope this helps, I am very familiar with Hoover AL, all of my family lives there :) Let me know if you have any other questions!
