If you have been a student, that counts the same as employment. If you have changed jobs for better pay but it is in a similar line of work, they usually don't require that you remain with the same company for 2 years. Please call me and I will recommend you speak with a mortgage guy that will be able to guide you better. Banks are usually the hardest place to get a mortgage (but not always!).

You need a buyers agent to represent you. They can discuss the specifics with the sellers agent and see if there is a possibility of working out a deal. That said, the only sure thing that will keep your dream home from being sold out from under you is a signed contract, and the seller will likely want to see some sort of proof of funds before they sign.

Give me a call if you would like to discuss further, good luck!

Everyone starts in the same place #1 step = Talk to a lender to see if you can borrow money and how much. Call or go see a couple lenders to see what they can offer you. Pay nothing, sign nothing.

Step #2 = go find a Realtor to work with you after getting the information in step #1. Good luck.

I think I would make a reasonable offer.. what I feel the house would appraise for and truly be worth. If I didn't want to be caught up in the waiting game then I'd pass. Chances are the house will sell for more than it's worth because some one is going to try to win. ... more

Banks are selling their bank owned properties because they want them off their books. They do not want to be landlords. That said, they won't do lease to own. You will need to find a seller who has equity or a seller who can afford to still make payments on the property while most likely owning another home.

Iris Glen is a newer neighborhood that had some of the same problems many others did, Kenya. There are some bargain priced properties still available, all save one bank owned. Shopping and good restaurants are just a few minutes away in Loganville, ten minutes away in Snellville or twenty to thirty minutes away in Bethlehem and Winder. If you would like for me to send you electronic flyers of any or all of these properties, please forward me your email address and I will get them over ASAP. If you'd like to see some today or tomorrow, please call, email or text and I will arrange the viewings. Good Luck!

Hello Todd,

As you may know, most of us are not qualified to dispense "legal" advice and are also prohibited from advising the client of another agent. The HOMESteps Addendum that I have on file, however, reads in Paragraph 9, "INSPECTIONS," that ...

"Seller authorizes Purchaser, at Purchaser's expense to make a complete inspection of the Property within ten (10) calendar days from the final execution date (Seller's Acceptance Date) of the Contract of determine the presence of any environmental conditions affecting the Property...or other factors regarding the Property about which Purchaser may be concerned."

It goes on to read...

"To cancel in such event, Purchaser must, within twelve (12) calendar days from the final execution date of the Contract of Sale, provide Seller with written notice of cancellation, together with the inspection report(s) and a written designation of the deficiencies."

Nothing could be found in this addendum that would suggest that the Purchaser has as an option to adjust the contract price in the event of the discovery that the property is located in a flood zone.

Just a couple of questions.

1. What does your agent say about the Purchaser's options provided for in the actual contract?
2. Are you beyond the inspection period provided for in the contract?
3. Is an inspection report of some sort available that revealed that the property is in a flood zone?

I could go on, but the best source of answers would likely be your agent and the contract in place.

Fair Housing Laws prevent an agent from discussing any ratios of ethnicity--therefore if unfamiliar with the subdivision, do visit more than once and at different times of day, chat with locals, etc., and then make a determination of your own. ... more

Karen Parsons Fiddler answered:

The long and short answer is "it depends". Sorry!

If it's a very recent approval and the negotiator still has the file opened, it can take a week or so....but if it's an old approval, they most likely need to start from scratch.

The best person to ask is your agent....they would have talked to the listing agent and found out the specifics of your situations. The good news is that if you offered what the bank wants, you should be in great shape to get the new approval.

What does your contract say, Mills? If you have a buyer's agent, they should be able to help you immensely. Please let me know if you are attempting this solo, and we can go over your options.
