You can begin by visiting with any licensed loan officer and see what options you may have; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

Yes, it is possible to find; however, many landlords will probably get quite nervous when they hear for both home and day care. Be aware that your search may be a little more tedious than most and that you will likely need to pay more monthly than the average 2/2. Hire a real estate agent and let them know your needs. They'll be able to point you in the right direction. ... more

Hi Matthew,

That is difficult to answer because it depends on too many factors, but it won't be cheap. Have you tried calling a few local contractors for estimates?

Dear Sabina:

If you have an agent representing you, standard protocol is that should have been disclosed that to the listing agent prior to your viewing of the property. Bringing in another agent after the fact will open a can of worms.

As an example, does your agent expect to be paid a fee, and if so who would be paying that fee? The agent that showed you the property is probably assuming they will be the "selling" agent whether they represent you or not. Especially if the agent that showed you the house is not the actual listing agent. Even if it was the actual listing agent that showed you the house, they are assuming they will be credited with bringing you in as a buyer.

Bringing in a buyers agent after the fact can cause you to lose the deal too. If it is important to you to bring in your buyers agent after the fact then by all means do so, but be prepared, you may be paying your buyers agent their fee on top of all the other closing costs you will incur.
