house not listed?

Answer

yeah.. our MLS is designed to be associated with Zillow.. use what Mya said.. create an account on POSTLETS.com .. make a flyer with your information on the home.. and zillow will automatically pick it upa lot of home buyers do view the site on zillow.. and .. tell your agent to step it up.. putting a sign and listing on the MLS is not the only job of a listing agent.. home needs to be on zillow.. trulia.. realtor.com .. etc etc.. list goes on.. its the summer months.. gotta get it sold now.. don't wait till the winter!!!!!!!

Opinion on National Debt and Home values and Mortgage Rates

Answer

rates obviously will go up.. they HAVE to go up.. for things to stabilize.. artificially low interest rates do a lot of harmdebt will go up HIGHER.. we all know that :) .. no crystal ball needed for that one.. in the time it took for me to write this.. it already went up by quite a lot.. probably my yearly income!right now 25% of the homes are underwater.. it will not be drastic to expect 30-40% of the homes being underwater before things get better.

What disqualifies a house from being approved for a 203k?

Answer

most realtors dont want you to get FHA 203k cuz it is time consuming and it is a little challenging. also, there are some costs involved in the bid process that are higher. any house can technically qualify for fha 203k.. provided there aren't association bylaws etc that forbid a FHA loan. you can buy a house for 1$ and get a FHA loan on it.. the affordability comes from your individual ratios.you buy a home for 50k, spend 30k fixing it. 80k total price. 3.5% of that is all you need really.to get a FHA loan, make sure you have a knowledgeable and patient realtor and a lender.. the loan is not for everybody.. but it is a great product and one that should be used much more frequently to offset repair costs etc... specially when its all rolled into your mortgage.
