I am looking for a house in highland park under $200K foreclosure or short sale, a house that I can fix. The only thing I would not consider is if the foundation is made up out of brick which usually is the reason for so many floodings. I know it is very challenging but I'm not rich, have a couple of kids and have been renting in HP for 8 years now. My phone number is 224-600-7455. Regards, Patxi.... more
Hi Pam, If you are a state, county or city employee or a teacher you may be able to get into a home with little or no down payment, although you may have to pay some closing costs, also if you meet certain income criteria (low to Moderate) and are a 1st time homebuyer (haven't owned in the last 3 years), you may qualify for a CALHFA loan with a CHDAP (downpayment assistance) silent 2nd. Furthermore, there are still communities where you can get downpayment assistance, you just need to connect with a good REALTOR and loan person who know and understand these programs and who you feel comfortable with to guide you through the transactions.
