Ok – myself and my husband are ready to buy a house after our lease is up on our apartment. We have been looking around and can’t seem to find anything in our budget in an area that we like. Plus, I should mention that my dad was going to give us a loan for the upfront costs so we could buy the home.
My husbands uncle went through a divorce last year (it was messy where they sold the house and then backed out of the sale and tried to make it work with each other but couldn’t) so now he is ready to sell and asked us if we were interested in buying his home. We were but,he was going to put his house on the market for $ 50,000 more than we could afford to spend. YIKES!
He tried to stay in the house with his 2 children but decided that it was too much maintenance for 1 person. Now it has been so long and he is ready to just be done with it. He doesn’t want to go through the hassles of putting it on the market again – and he just wants out of the house and wants to move on with his life. He is willing to work with our budget and sell it to us for something that we can afford to pay monthly.
How do we do this? I don’t know what upfront costs there will be and I am new at this and this isn’t exactly a normal situation. I don’t know where to start. Any suggestions or tips?
