I would talk to a different lender. You should be able to use the same appraisal.
Best of luck!

Jim Manley answered:
Why would want to find a pocket listing. A seller giving a pocket listing does really care if another realtor shows the property. They are only going to pay their pocket listor. Depending on the price there should be a lot of opportunities for you around Huntsville?

Debbie Morris answered:
You should check with a local mortgage company or bank for that specific information. Realtors are not experts on finance but do have a good working knowledge of the process and know the local lenders to refer you too. You will need to know your credit score and payment history before you call the lender to speed the process. Good luck. ... more

The best way to get information on the crime rate in a particular area is to contact the local law enforcement officials in that area. Rise Real Estate practices fair housing and does not give out personal opinions on anything that could be considered steering or misleading. I would be happy to help you get in touch with the proper autorities. I hope you have found this information helpful and good luck. Thanks, Trish Hagin ... more

The lender escrows money to protect themselves in the event of foreclosure. Remember the lender owns the house until full payment of borrowed money is paid.

Trish Hagin answered:
Many people have recently moved to Huntsville and want to rent for a year to learn the area before they commit to a home. On the other hand many people have insufficient credit to qualify at the present and are renting until they can repair their credit and become qualified to purchase with a conventional or FHA loan. If you would like to consider a realtor to help you sell your property, I would be happy to sit down discuss the advantages of listing with a realtor. At any rate I wish you the best of luck with selling your home. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
As far as COST goes; if it is above MARKET VALUE, don't buy it.
If you are talking about a Private Auction; be sure of what you're doing;
can you make INSPECTIONS?
Do you know if it has a CLEAR TITLE?
Do you know the FINAL COST?

Good luck and may God bless

You can contact us for a free consultation, or give us a call if you have other questions.

Thanks,

Hi carter9ok,

If you have equity, you should try to sell it. Contact a local Realtor to assist you. Why would you want a foreclosure on your credit if you don't have to?

Check on Craigslist and with a Realtor. It could be in the range of $1,100-$1,300. But it varies; check online and with a Realtor.

Hope that helps.

Ron Thomas answered:
Lease/Option
You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!

Real estate agents are not allowed to comment on those types of things. You would have to do your own research on those statistics.

Debbie Morris answered:
I don't know a ton about the company. They are relatively new to the Huntsville area. They do have the standard builders warranties plus a little more. They are building in several Madison neighborhoods at present. Ask them for references, google them, ask other Realtors about them but be sure you are comfortable with them before you buy. This is a generally good idea, a home is a big investment and you want to be sure about the builder,etc. There are quite a few builders in that area ..do some comparison shopping. If you need Realtor assistance do not hesitate to ask your Realtor. ... more
