what you monthly payment would be

Answer

If you were financing $450,000 with a 30 year loan at a 3.5% fixed rate your monthly payment would be about $2020.70 for the principle and interest. You will also have property taxes, home owners insurance, and possible HOAs to pay as well on top of that so it depends on those things as well.

my husband have bad credit can he still buy a house

Answer

It really depends on a lot of things. I would have your husband talk with some lenders and they should be able to tell him if he can qualify or not and if he can't qualify right now they should be able to let him know what he can do to improve his credit.

Marketing or Advertising as Lender on Zillow

Answer

If you contact Zillow they should be able to help you with this. When I have spoken with Zillow about advertising in the past they have suggested that I team up with a lender to split the advertising costs so you may want to find an agent who is currently advertising on Zillow in your preferred area and talk to them about partnering up with them.

can i cancel buying due to repairs needed after inspection

Answer

If you had an inspection contingency written in with your offer it should say what your options are and what the timelines are for those options. A lot of times you can cancel buying due to repairs needed after you've done your home inspection. I would talk to your agent ASAP and let them know what your intentions are.

Am I being impatient? Home listed on mls since oct 4. With 8 showings. Only

Answer

I would say that having 8 showings since October 4 isn't bad. There are many homes that don't get showings at all. I would consider waiting a little longer to see if you get any offers and if you don't then you can talk with your agent about possible reducing the price a little and see if you get any increase in interest and hopefully an offer.

about how much does a home inspection cost for a buyer

Answer

Out in my area you can pay somewhere around $325.00 for a smaller home and the price goes up from there. Really depends on the inspector, type of home, and size of home to name a few things.
