Let me know if I can help.
Unfortunately that is a very tough situation. Investment properties are tough right now. You generally need 20-30% down or you can forget it. I have a number of a very good mortgage person. I do not want to post it here, but contact me and I will give it to you. If it can be done he will find a way. Unfortunately, because it is bank owned there will be no seller financing unless you qualify like everyone else.... more
Couple ideas, are you able to purchase the home on your own, without your boyfriends income?
If so, that might be the way to go, since his score is so low. Unfortunately in the tumultuous credit climate, conditions, requirements and rules are changing everyday....if not by the minute. Also, start shopping around with different lenders, tell them your scores and ask them to give you a realistic look at if you'll get pre-approved. Remember, your credit score takes a hit everytime a new lender pulls your credit history. Good Luck!... more
Radon levels above the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L are not terribly uncommon here in Massachusetts. I've had tests come back more than 50x that level and we were able to correct the problem. The sellers should install a radon mitigation system before you buy. As long as the sellers install a mitigation system that keeps the radon level below 4.0 you should have no problems with the price of your house moving forward (at least not due to any radon issues...). As long as the radon levels are kept in check (< 4.0 PCi/L) with a properly working mitigation system, it should be a non-issue for future potential buyers. I put a link to the AccuStar Labs website below which has some great radon info for homeowners.
Congratulations (almost) on your new home in Carlisle! It's a lovely community.... more
