You seem to be on a good track. You have several options available for yourself

Your best bid is working with a Mortgage Broker, try to understand where you at. You could be eligible for an FHA loan that would require only 3.5 % down.

Call Lewis and discuss your situation. There is no cost and he is good.

Also if you are local, I like to send you to a free course at the Board given the 3rd Saturday every month. It is no costs to you and you get a great book and they pay for breakfast and lunch. I promise you, you wont be bored and you get a certificate that allows for some grants too and you have a good time. I took the course myself. It was excellent!

This will be the start and you have a better understanding in what you have to do and the quickest ways as well. Also, you should get your credit reports and pay extra for your update FICA Scores from all three Credit Bureau, make sure everything is correct.

Lastly, check out the information on here: http://rwolchesky.wordpress.com/about-me/
It will give you a little road map you gong to need. there are good links that I hope still works, if not let me know.

If you contact me, I set you up for the course.

Hope this helps. Good luck with your decision.

Been there since I have a GSD service dog and work with a lot of K9 handlers.

Have you checked with the mgmt to see if they will allow a waiver if the owner takes out a sub policy on the dog? This will occasionally work.

Ive also checked in my office/fellow REALTORs to see if they have a vacant listing that will allow short term rental. Sometimes if the home has been on the market for a while the owner will appreciate someone else covering the expenses.

Good luck with your customer.

You should IMMEDIATELY contact our rental agents. Rents are rising and it's getting harder and harder to find a great home. So call now before someone else gets the home you should have!

Successfully negotiate the purchase of a piece of real estate.
It's like a lawyer representing himself in court, a doctor operating on himself.
If I thought you were being serious, I wouldn't have taken the time.
What might I ask do you do for a living I could do or any other Realtor so as not to involve you?
I welcome you to make an offer on any of my listings and negotiate with me!

Cheers!

A Home Warranty is exactly what it states. This can be offered by a seller or a buyer may purchase one. This plan will protect your appliances, a/c, plumbing etc. for a certain amount of time. There are a number of companies offering this protection and my advice would be to examined each plan and compare. ... more
