Hi Joanna,

Dogs of any size aren't permitted in this complex. I'd be glad to find you a pet-friendly complex.

Best regards,

Matt,

I know that my sister was able to. I would talk to your bank or mortage broker to see what would be best for you, either a lower rate or if paying less pmi. If you would like a mortgage referral I would be happy to give you some. Also, if you have any questions about buying your new home or would like a tour, I would be happy to assist.

I can be reached at 860-368-8383.

Hi. You should start looking for a home before you get out of your rental lease. When is your lease up for renewal? I would love to further discuss this with you. You can reach me at 860-966-0569.

I see you picked up on that thought from your earlier thread. In my experience, the sellers are overwhelmgly wanting to sell. It would be rare. The answer I gave you in the earlier thread is the best one, believe me.

Yes, there are 3 condominiums available in Rocky Hill. It would depend on the flexibility of the landlord whether they'd accept you. It depends on your actual credit report.

I've lived in Rocky Hill for 25 years so I certainly know the area.

Please contact me directly if you'd like my assistance.

Best regards,
Lisa

Hi Valerie! Assuming you have no other funds, buying a home with an annual income of $14,000 would be very difficult. There are a lot of ‘ifs’. If you have a decent credit score, no debt, can get a mortgage with a low interest and down payment assistance, and the seller is willing to pay closing costs, you could (theoretically) qualify for a mortgage of about $43000. However, there are virtually no single family homes for this price. While a tiny condo may not be out of the question, your options are extremely limited. A resource like the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority’s homebuyer program would be ideal for you. In addition to financing, they offer a free Homebuyer Education class that provides basic information about homeownership and buying a home. That would be a great place for you to start. More information can be found at www.chfa.org. Feel free to call me at the Coldwell Banker Wethersfield office if I can be of help! Good luck! ... more

M,

This is something that many agents do to identify serious buyers and not waste the time of all parties involved. As a owner /seller, if not approached sensatively you could run the risk of alienating the customer.

Would you not show them the property if they were not pre-approved? Should you identify cash buyers as well? Another way of approaching this would be to invite the buyer in, show them the property, and work these issues into the conversation......

Good luck,

Bill

Donald,

Of course depending on how far back you want to go. Residential I usually start in the MLS system and just look at closed listings. Our MLS goes pretty far back. Now if that is not enough just go to the Register of Deeds website for the county in question and start your search there.

I do not believe Trulia is going to be able to show you much that far back if at all.

Hope this helps,

Carl Guild answered:
You often can. There should be something written into your original lease about what it would cost to break your lease. Often you will loose your security deposit and owe a percentage of what is owed, but every landlord is different.. So the answer is yes you can get out of your lease.. The question remains - how much will it cost?? ... more

No one can render an opinion unless through a mortgage broker who can review your entire file.

Loan approval is based on following:
a) Credit Scores
b) Amount you owe to income earned
c) Employment history 2 years or more
d) W2
e) Bank statements

If you are 1st home buyer if you close prior to 6/10 you receive tax credit of $8K AND you annual tax benefits owning any real estate.

Once you are qualified by a lender this governs how a Realtor can work on your behalf.

Elaine,

She will need 6 months seasoning on title in order to refinance. If she was not on title and she was making the mortgage payments Fannie Mae will look at that as "vested interest" and will allow her to go onto the loan.

Hope that helps

Enfield is a real nice town. Little to no crime. Convenient to Hartford CT and Springfield MA (about 10 minutes to each). Only about 20 minutes from Rocky Hill. It has really good schools. I am selling my home here if interested email me at budrusty@aol.com (FSBO)
A real good realtor is Alicia Albert at Century 21 Alaimo (in Enfield)

Carl Guild answered:
Well Robin - it depends on a bunch of factors. Are you basing the 730K price on what you paid or what you think it is worth? The best way to try to find the value of your house currently is to have a market analysis done of similar homes that have sold in the past three months. Higher end homes are definitely taking longer to sell, but if priced well, will still sell. If you have more questions, feel free to contact me at 860-539-5373. ... more
