This is risky business, They may do well but you could end up with $20K of damages and a payment. I was in the same situation and finally have a contract on my home and now can qualify for a loan to purchase a new home contingent on the sale/ close of mine. Where is your house I may be interested?... more

The only program that I have available would be the FHA 203K. I would recommend an FHA streamline vs using a consultant. The key would be the completeness of the licensed contractor's bid. The rates are slightly higher than a regular FHA loan, but not that much. This money can be used for repairs or upgrades. With USDA the only program that I have allows for up to $10,000.00 in repairs, but it cannot be for upgrades and the house pretty much has to be habitable. If there are no applicances that is acceptable for that. Please give me a call:

Many home owners face this exact situation. Giving up on looking at homes in Clinton, TN is easy. However, we both know that's not the route to take. If you're having difficulty selling your home, then I would suggesting getting creative and getting someone to take over those payments. You can do this through a lease purchase or rent to own situation. Not only does this allow you to have someone take on those monthly payments and allow you to purchase a home in Clinton, it also puts a plan in place for you to potentially get your home sold in one of the worst real estate markets in history.
If you'd like to talk more about this, then feel free to get in contact with me at 703-829-7344. I specialize in Lease Purchase/Rent To Own nationwide.

I grew up in Oak Ridge and graduated from ORHS in the early eighties. When I got married, we moved to Virginia for a few years, and only then did I begin to realize what a nice place my hometown is. I have been a city firefighter now for over 20 years and love serving the people of Oak Ridge.
I am also a TN licensed home inspector and have bought and sold many homes in Oak Ridge. I think the Oak Ridge market took a bit of a hit the last several years, but not nearly like other areas of the country. Houses on my street have recently sold for close to pre-recession prices. My kids have done well in the Oak Ridge schools, which consistently rank very high state-wide. It's easy to get around town, and Knoxville is a quick drive away. Not a bad place to be (or be from).... more
Much will depend on your debt amount, overall finances, money down, credit score, etc.--visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first, see if you do qualify and how much--keep in mind that lenders have their income v. debt criteria for qualifying for the amount of a mortgageâ€”oftentimes requiring that housing costs are not in excess of one-third of gross income in addition to a stipulated income v. overall debt-ratio. What lenders donâ€™t know are borrowersâ€™ non-debt spending habits, present and anticipated. You, the borrower, need to consider the economic factors of your lifestyle that would impact on your individual comfort level of affordability. A mortgage outside your budgetary constraints can dramatically alter your overall living conditions. So, be sure to factor micro and macro economic concerns into your mortgage amount deliberations.... more
Not sure exactly what your question is, but I will try to help. Real estate companies don't buy homes from homeowvers, we just sell the home thru tried & true marketing stategies to expose the home to the most qualified buyers. Generally speaking site built homes retain their value better than doublewides. Lake access can raise your value if it is year round water and access is thru your own property rather than accross the street for example. The doublewide on Fowler street has been on the market 50+ days with no price reductions. As a professional Realtor, I would recommend having an agent come out to evaluate your property & options with the property you are interested in.
