Has the bank acknowledged the fax with your initial offer and the seller's financials? Has the bank assigned a negotiator? Have they done their appraisal of the property? If any of these have been done, you should just sit tight. If none of these have been done, then you need to make sure the bank has actually received the entire package--If they don't receive everything complete and in one fax, you will be waiting forever. ... more

Have your owned income property before?
If not, I do have some advice for you.
1. Talk with your CPA regarding the tax consequences. Depending upon your personal financial situation and also the potential gain on sale, you should know the difference between selling now and selling it AFTER it becomes an investment property and you no longer have the personal tax deduction.
2. I don't know what condition your home is in, but renters never take as good of care as you did. So know that when you do finally sell it, you will probably have to do a lot of work to put it in showing condition. While it is a rental, more maintenance will need to be performed by professionals because you will not be around to do it.
3. Probably the most important aspect is "who is going to manage the property"? I have worked with great property managers, and lousey ones. And the appear the same on the outside. A bad property manager can cost you a lot of money, stress, and headaches. A great one can make your life much easier.

I encourage you to do diligence now. Then make your best call.

Yes, great area to choose! I can send you info if you need it, recently posted blog on the area with prices, etc. Subdivision offers 2.5 baths with most homes which is nicer than some of the older units that might only have 1.5 baths. Newer built in 1997 or so. Nature Sanctuary area/park/tennis court/play ground section is very popular. ... more

Hello Kelly,

If you have a substantial downpayment, you may be able to purchase without having the credit. I would advise you speak to atleast 3 mortgage professionals in order for you to make the best decision.
