Hello Amy, how much are you currently paying in rent now and what is the maximum payment you are looking for now? Are you looking for a condo, townhome or single family home. How long of a maximum commute are you looking for?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The rentals or purchase in San Francisco can be affordable depending on search criteria.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

If you decide you want to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

You may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 2.5 million.

Looking to move to North Carolina Boone, Banner, Elk or anywhere in this area. I have picked these two areas because it seems to have the most average snowfall also cooler weather in the summertime being that I have been in Florida after 25 years. I have found some very nice cabins in the $175,000 price range on my own with acreage . I seem to be having a problem with realtor's getting back with me and I wonder if it because it's only $175000 my starting price???? I'm retiring soon and I'd rather have money to do other things that I want to do and as I said I have found half a dozen at this price. I hope possibly that a realtor sees my question and can get back with me for some help because I know there's other surrounding towns that I'm just having a problem finding. ... more
