There really isn't a limit, you'll know it when you see it. However, you can save yourself a lot of time by knowing your 'wants' and 'needs'. Then, remaining flexible and understanding that your new home may not have all of your wants and needs.

Some will view only one or two homes, others may view 20+. Everyone's venture will vary.

He or she should:

If your looking for a fixer, the Government Foreclosure List is offering the best deals. If you want a clean house, I like Bank REO list - priced to sell about 10% below short sales.

If you have been watching the price action on any homes below $299,000, you will be looking at higher prices in the coming weeks. Another words, IT'S TIME to BUY!

The sky is the limit! You can counter offer back to the seller with anything you want. What I would do is try to find out the seller's motivation for selling and try to satisfy that and get what works best for you. You could ask the seller to defer some of the 20% to a later date or anything else that helps your situation and helps the seller. This could be a win win situation for both parties.

I wish you the best,

Hello Vwhi,

How difficult will it be to ask the seller directly how much they owe? The listing agent should know because they probably put the sum on the preliminary HUD1 tell your agent to ask them what the sum is. Then you can make an informed decision as to whether you wish to continue with the transaction or not. You should not have to guess this amount as the homeowner should know how many months they are behind. Good Luck and get the sum in writing. ... more

Wow, you spent a lot to heat an adobe home last year!

Adobe is great at mantaining a constant temperature. You will be less efficient if you let it cool down, then come home from work, and heat it up such as is often done with forced air heat.

Radiant heat (baseboard), will be more efficient with adobe if you keep the thermostats set at close to the same temperature all the time. I personally prefer radiant heat, but electric baseboard heat or electric heat of any sort will have high utility bills. It is not as efficient at gas. Avoid electric baseboard heat!

There is no such creature as gas baseboard heat. You are probably refering to hot water radiant baseboard heat supplied by a gas fired boiler. These are extremely efficient, quiet, and reliable heating systems. My favorite! And, as I mentioned, great for an adobe home, if you don't try to re-heat a cold home every day. Installation will be more expensive than that of electric baseboard heaters.

Don't get sold on the in-floor radiant heat system which does not require the baseboard radiators because the coils are in the flooring. It is expensive to install, and the heat transfer is not as efficient due to the mass of the floor and ground beneath it absorbing heat. On the other hand, it does keep the floor nice and warm for bare feet if you have tile, (not so great for carpet), and can work well if you keep the thermostat set at one setting continually.

They do make a system which circulates hot water from your domestic water heater through baseboard radiators, but this system is only as efficient as your domestic water heater, which is not so great.

My vote is for hot water radiant baseboard using a gas fired boiler.
