when are the best and worst months to sell my home in Pensacola FL market area?

Answer

Oh you are going to get all kind of answers to this question. But true answer really depends on what your needs are. Maximizing value is a process not really a time of month. With that said tax refund season typically sees an uptick in buyer activity. I hope that helps, and let me know if you need anything.Shane

Is it a good time to purchase or sell?

Answer

hpvanc said "It is always a good time for real estate agents to buy and sell other peoples properties, their income depends on it.  The problem is it varies significantly for the actual property buyers and sellers, and real estate agents don't have the education necessary or the correct economic incentives in a commission compensation structure to give that kind of advise."I can not say I agree with that totally. It falls under a logical fallicy called "all or nothing" The statement implies that ALL real estate agents lack the education necessary to give solid advise. It also states that ALL agents are totally economically driven on every deal. I know that is not true of ALL agents ALL the time. Are there some that fall into this category.....sure, but not ALL."Its a Good Life"Shane

You can check your county records as a start, but this is the job of the title company. Have them give you a preliminary title report (fee may apply here :)"Its a Good Life"Shane

income + debt to income ratio on a $1m house

Answer

I agree with Clay Your payments are going to be a little higher than that ($700,000 at 4.5% is 3546 without taxes and insurance. Your standard debt to income is company specific, but you are going to be closer to   50%+ with just your income so you need more. Hope that helps"Its a Good Life"Shane
