There are a lot of factors involved. My preferred lenders will do a pre-qualification for you at NO COST so you can see what is possible and what kind of goals you need to set for yourself and the time frames you need to do them in. It may not take as long as you think it will :) :) :)Answered: Mar 25, 2012You are definitely in a tough spot... I would suggest you rent straight up... Then we can have all the leverage in negotiating a purchase when the time is right... What are we talking a few short 12 months from now??? I have helped 4 families with bad credit rent first...

If your going to start out here and move to a bigger one as your life and finances grow... then maybe we hold the condo and rent it out and let the equity build for the future, not to mention the tax breaks :)Answered: Mar 10, 2012Make sure you have the power of knowledge :) then pick a good Realtor, Lender, Title Company team!!! They all need to work together to get you to the settlement table.Answered: Mar 10, 2012Shelly... Hire your own Agent and have them do the contacting for you.

If there is a "will" there is a way. Good Luck to you. You can do it!!!Answered: Dec 11, 2011I've got one on Dover rd complete with private entrance, living room, kitchen and bath!!! If that one doesn't work, I have helped several clients find homes that either had one and didn't advertise it well or created one in space that easily accomodated the needs... Sometimes just searching and looking at the bedroom configuration of a home will go a long way... how many beds upstairs... how many on the main level... how many in the basement??? We can actually find convertible space over a garage. Sounds like fun :) give me a call and we will go hunting!!!Answered: Nov 29, 2011The Maximum Ammount can be claculated based on credit score to determine the interest rate you will get. Debt to Income ratios and property taxes are all variables to consider. Also if the property has a condo or hoa fees. Mark, it looks like you have had quite a few responses to your question. When would you like to set up an appointment to go see homes that fall within your price parameters???Answered: Nov 28, 2011In answer to: How do I conduct an MLS search?Easy...Just go to my website...ITS FREE!!! You can put in your own search critera...Price, Location, Beds, Baths, Etc!!!Answered: Nov 28, 2011Well, Mark... Getting the Pre-Qual should be rather easy to do, and free of charge by most lenders. At that time you can compare rates and services. But you do run the risk of hurting yourself if your credit is pulled too many times. Find a good realtor, they will discuss the rates and terms of the lender they are using and you can use that as a general guide. But lets face it... It's all about "trust" !!! You have to be able to trust the lender can actually deliver what they are promising you and not start jerking you around hours before settlement because they can't do what they promised. My lender is extremely competitive in todays marketplace. The important thing is he can actually deliver and get you to closing on time and relatively headache free. You are going to have to pull the trigger sooner, rather than later, in order to get you from Pre-Qual to "PRE APPROVAL" for your loan so we have something to use as leverage in negotiating your offer... If there is anything else I can answer for you, give me a call... There are soooo many variables to that question alone :)Answered: Nov 22, 2011In answer to: very interested in this rental. please send more infoRashe...What else would you like to know??? Where can I send more information??? I'd be happy to assist :)Answered: Nov 13, 2011In answer to: can a home for 350k drop down to 200kWell, Mr Black, if your Realtor works up the comparibles for the type of home in the neighborhood it is located, you will see what the values for the homes are. Lets assume the home is priced right for the neighborhood. When my clients wants me to make a query on their behalf, I do it. It may be a long shot, and I wouldn't make a habit of low-balling to that degree because it is a highly unlikely position to be working from, but I would at least make a phone call to try to find out what position the sellers are in, because we don't know. Maybe we have a short-sale, an estate sale or other drastic circumstances involved. I would then encourage you to look at homes that "DO" fit your pricing criteria, because there are plenty of homes out there for you to see and one of them just may have your name written all over it!!! Let me know if I can help negotiate an offer for you ;-)Answered: Nov 12, 2011All your observations are spot on. But we are out there in cyber-space, and a bit of that comes with the territory. My frustration with this and other sites is when we take the time to start up a conversation by answering a question and the inquisitor stops talking. But there again this is all part of putting it all out there for all to see. If we are smart, we will continue to talk to those we can help. Lets just hope they talk back. Bob:)
