I believe this can be done but you have to approach this carefully with regards to the mortgage. I have known of people in the same circumstances. I would be happy to talk to you about this further. Also, there are some banks that will pay you to do a short sale instead of letting it go back to the bank. It is something extremely new that I just learn about.

I am puzzled why your Realtor or one of their associates cannot answer your questions. Call your Realtor's office and speak with the broker. They should have answers for you. You should have your financing planned before the meeting with the builder. You do have several options available to you. If you are doing a construction loan some lenders offer those at 10% down. If you are looking at traditional financing there are conventional loans available with as little as 3% down with prepaid MI. ... more

Hi I

You should be fine, since it is an elementary school, you should be fine, after it is younger kids who will be playing in the play ground.

Will it affect the price in the future somewhat, but not much. You will be getting a discount now
for the same issue.

If it was a middle or High, it would be recommended to pass.
It just maybe worth the convenience to you.

Best Regards

That all depends on the home, your Realtor should be providing you with a market analysis of each home specifically so that you can make an informed decision based on which is the better buy. You will need to consider what is happening in that market and which home will suit you and your needs going forward. ... more

There is an element that needs to be explored in today's market that was not a concers 3-4 year ago and that is the financial stability of the builder. The vast majority of builders are trying to remain solvent while have all ready departed some are trying to hand on and ride this market out.

Our recommendation is, regardless of the deal you are offered, do a thorough review on the companies financial stability. Don't get caught in the middle of a project with a partially built home, no builder to complete you work, and landing in the middle of someone elses litigation which could leave you in the cold.

Do your homework and get the facts.

Good luck
