One of the most important things required for real estate transaction is the proof of funds that you currently have. Many real estate agents will be unwilling to work with you if you are unable to provide proof of funds.

A lot of people have wrongly misinterpreted the issue of buying a house after foreclosure. According to them, a person who has gone through a foreclosure will be unable to qualify for seven years or more to purchase a mortgage loan. This is not correct.

The type of loan you seek will determine the length of time that you will requi...

The requirement for switching from renting to owning a home involves proper planning and credit history. An individual who is considering applying for a mortgage loan should first and foremost check his or her credit score.

The city took its name from the Dells of the Wisconsin River, which were likened to the local rapids on the Big Sioux River. Welcome to Dell Rapids, South Dakota, home of the Dells of the Big Sioux River. It is also the fifth most distinctive, densely-populated and colorful place in the state of South Dakota. The identity of Dell Rapids is tied to a rich vein of red quartzite that runs 2,600 feet deep and hundreds of miles between the Wisconsin Dells and eastern South Dakota. The outcroppings of quartzite inspired the century-old quarry industry and the unique downtown architecture of Dell Rapids. Dell Rapids has enjoyed the advantages of being close to Interstate 29 and Sioux Falls while retaining its rock-solid identity as home to the Dells of the Big Sioux. Dell Rapids' Historic Main...

The real estate industry is showing signs of sleepiness as autumn sets into Sioux Falls. Inventory is low, prices are high, and there are fewer sales this month than there were last month.
