Answer

Hi, Talking with a mortgage lender is always the first step. Find one who will approach your situation with your comfort level in mind. You have to be comfortable with the monthly mortgage payment. Putting 3.5% down and asking up to approximately 3% in closing costs should be possible and leave you some reserves. Compare your rent payment with the possible mortgage payment and decide how you can save back your reserves to a comfortable level asap. Keep in mind that interest paid and property taxes paid are tax deductible. Those pros you don't have while renting. Good luck!

My husband and I just put in offer on a house. How long does it usually take to get a response?

Answer

Hi, On a conventional sale, three days max (default of contract), on a REO/bank owned between seven and 10 days. Short sale, the home owner normally signs pretty quick but then has to go to their bank and wait for a possible Short sale approval (the real acceptance of your offer) and that can take as long as eight weeks, sometimes longer. These are approximate reply times.
