I've looked at a lot of Homepath eligible properties. I have yet to see one that didn't need substantial rehab work. I suggest you hire a good home inspector with construction experience. NOT the guys who are done in an hour and hand you a pre-printed report at the end of it.
You don't want to end up not knowing enough about the house to make an informed decision.
Good luck

I was interested in a condo like this, my first lender said only lenders on the 'home path renovation' list on homepath's website were eligible lenders to fix the property and still not have to. I had to pick a new lender that could do this deal.

There are a lot out there. Let me know if you need a referral.

Also, you should get a good buyers agent. This way you have someone to walk you through the buying process, at no cost to you. Interview two or three agents, and go with the one you mesh best with.

Find a Realtor and Lender to represent your interests. As per lending you should get prequalified soon, in order to ensure that you have the ability to purchase the home you are interested in.
