I see no cons of paying cash. You own your home outright, no mortgage payment and if you want to move, then you don't have to worry about an upside down mortgage. As far as the benefit of being able to claim your interest on your taxes, if you do the math, you will see that you save more not having a mortgage than you do having a mortgage and claiming the interest. ... more

you may have it priced too low. Many people will look for homes from 50-? for example. Is it listed with a Realtor?

There are several different types of financing you can obtain.
What area of town are you interested in?
There are some areas in St. Johns county that allow USDA financing with 0% down.
Also, if you qualify for a VA loan, you will have 0%.
FHA financing is 3 1/5%.
There are many other types of financing.

I would say people that do not drive should not consider buying a unit downtown where there is no public transportation. Or petition you public transit board to expand their routes.

Hello Lou,

I sympathize with your shock Lou. I always try to prepare my clients for anything that has to do with cash out of pocket. Without knowing more about your situation, it's hard to venture what happened. Did you ask your lender about it? What type of financing are you using? Could some of the difference be in your prepaids? The time of month can make a difference in your prepaids since most of those items are pro-rated, and I find some lenders do not do such a good job explaining or preparing customers for prepaids.

Again, I think your lender is going to be the best person to ask about this. If it is possible, perhaps you can arrange your closing nearer to the end of the month to shave off some of the prorated interest?

Hello Trulia Jacksonville,

Having a credit score of 740 or more should qualify for the best mortgage rates from most lenders.

You can also buy points to lower your interest rate.

I hope this helps!

For what it's worth in my opinion absolutely not. If the seller must be home I would truly advise them to not follow the buyers around and to stay out of the way. Refer any and all questions to the listing agent. Allan ... more

Good Evening,

If your offer is rejected there may be nothing you can do (if the house was sold to another individual).

There could be a lot you could do. What is the sellers ultimate goal? You could offer more money, adjust the settlement date to the needs of the seller,do they want to sell it furnised?

There are a lot of questions to ask regarding why they are not accepting your offer. Ask and ye shall find the answer (hopefully).
