Financing in Dallas>Question Details

Jimmy, Home Buyer in Dallas, TX

Only considered for investment loan and not conventional which increase rate.

Asked by Jimmy, Dallas, TX Thu Aug 8, 2013

I am currently in Afghanistan as a contractor and want to buy a house in October/November 2013. I am going on on vacation during those months and would like to buy. Thing is I'm trying to get a loan and my loan officer said I qualify only for an investment loan even thought it's my primary because I can't occupy for 60 days after close since I will be gone again after I buy.

So basically I will buy and be gone for 105 days.

If you move in and then leave..... you have 'taken occupancy'.

I don't care if you leave the country for 105 days or 1000 days.

That loan officer was wrong.

Do not commit mortgage fraud. You'll get caught and go to jail. If the lenders are telling you it can not be a primary residence loan because of the days you can only occupy. Then that is all you can do. Be smart about this and get a realtor who will be smart and not tell you what you want to hear.

Swap lenders not disclose your plans when your intent to take possession . If you move in your personal items you are living there just not occupying the property.

How about if the home closes while I'm overseas? Can I just have a friend take care of the house?
