Unfortunately, its likely that you will not be able to do anything, especially with all the new Obama over-regulations that have crippled the mortgage industry!

But wait.....its gonna get even worse in 2013 with the further implementation of the Dodd/Frank Act (i.e. Death Star for borrowers)!

Lenders were actually being more flexible over the past 6 months with the anticipation of a Romney win and the repeal of this nasty, anti-business Dodd / Frank Act, but not now.

Hope and Change? More like a Clown Car Full of Horrors as we’re all finding out!

It depends what you are trying to do. Are you trying to get FHA or you have a big down payment and you go with conventional .
I would recommend even if you are not qualified to get a mortgage at this time from banks , try to get owner financing ( eventhough they are going to charge you high interest rate ) . As soon as your credit is good enough you can refinance and go with lower interest rate. ... more

Julie Rosenthal answered:
Hi there are many costs to consider such as preparation of the lot for elevation and firmness to meet building codes and connecting to utilities like water and sewer or creating your own well and septic . Next the design of the roof greatly impacts your costs to build . I recommend chatting with a builder to find out your range of choices. As you focus in on your decisions you will begin to get your costs per sq ft also the prices vary between air conditioned living space vs covered or open porches decks and even garage area so take your budget and play with your variables ... more

Danielle Sharp answered:
Until you receive a short sale approval letter in writing nothing is certain in a short sale. Having 2 mortgages is not uncommon and while it adds another layer of approval, time and annoyance it's not an insurmountable hurdle. As long as the person negotiating the short sale is any good this shouldn't be a huge deal.

Talk with your agent after they can find out the details on this particular property. There are so many different pieces that go into a short sale that it is very difficult to give a blanket answer.

Hi Alysia,
It depends on the bank. Some banks require this document at the beginning and others require it at closing. Unfortunately, I can't give you timeframe. However, when the bank starts asking for documents it means someone is looking at the file. Thanks, Monica ... more

Stacey Hammer answered:
Hi Bucka. Regarding the pet, finding a rental that will allow your dog is just a matter of finding an individual owner who is willing to accept the pet. In most cases, you would need to pay a non-refundable pet fee in the range of $250-300 for having the pet at the property. When buying, the only time there are pet restrictions are when you are looking at condos or townhome communities, in most cases. if you want something with a workshop, find an agent (like me!) who is willing to take the time necessary to find you properties that have that feature.

Let me know if I can help!

Seyed "V" Hosseini answered:
You need to contact a Realtor , they would get a CMA ( Comparable Market analyze) for you and tell you what proximate range your house worth. Price of houses has been starting to go up and forecast shows it will be the same way in this year , buying is a good idea where the prices are still low . ... more

Seyed "V" Hosseini answered:

Port Malabar subdivision was one of the hottest area during the pick of market ( 2003-2007) to build house on.
If you look at most of the houses in that area , they were built in 2005-2006 and almost all of them are extremely upside down and homeowners have walked away from it. it means they are for sale as a shortsale or foreclosed house.But its not always a bad thing because when market is coming back those places where have been hurt worst will appreciate the most.
I hope i have answered your question.

Lorraine Jackson answered:

It is not too early to start looking. I would make sure your banking is all in order to get financing if you need that. Otherwise just keep an eye on the internet and all the listings in the area you want to be in. This will give you an idea of what way the market is trending in the area you like. You may want to get a Realtor that
Represents Buyers to start working with you also.

Wishing you the best of luck!

You'll probably be getting a lot of responses here. See who gives you the best answer and who you connect with. Talk to a few Realtors and see whom you feel most comfortable with and take it from there.
Good Luck! If you need a referral, I'd be happy to give you one.
