Katrina, You would need to refinance the property. The problem is that your mother may have needed you to do that, to qualify. I specialize in doing the hard to do loans if you want me to look at it I will try. My phone is 714-421-1037.... more
The shortest for me was (2) months the longest was a family looking for one year. It does take time to find the right thing. It really depends upon the buyers, the amount they qualify for and their needs.... more
Yes of course and I highly recommend that you have an agent on your side as a buyer and not just go through the agent listing the house. This is your first purchase you'll need someone who can walk you through the process and make sure you understand all the details involved so there are no surprises.
