Home Buying in 33434>Question Details

Bucksterbob, Home Buyer in 33434

I am interested in purchasing a home for under $300,000 with 10-15% down. I am self employed with a 665 score

Asked by Bucksterbob, 33434 Tue Jun 30, 2009

and my wife has a score of 730. I had identity theft 3 years ago and my score went from 800 down to 570. I am looking for owner financing as i cannot show enough income and there is not stated income loans at this time. Where is the best place to find owner financing or stated income. We are interested in a 3-4 bedroom pool minimum 2300 sq ft.home between North Lauderdale and Boca?

Would this be a homestead property? If your wife is employed you can combine both incomes. You can also get a FHA loan and put down 3.5 percent, considering your debt to income ratio is above 55 percent or so. "Hard money" is not cheap, high interest rates, and in most cases 50 percent down.
But there is good news. As Jennifer stated she is correct, there's plenty of seller financing to Take advantage of. Just Have your realtor do some homework, make some phone calls and they will find something nice for you.

Even if you are self employed, you can use your tax return to show your income. Also, you didn't mention your wife's income. With scores of 730 and 665 and 10-15% down you should still qualify for several types of loans. In addition, I am assuming you have written documentation of the identity theft which should help.

Hi Bob,

Give me a call. Let me know a little more about what you want to have in a home. I'll do the research and find you some homes with owner financing. As the market has changed over the last 3 years I'm see more homeowners/sellers saying they will give owner financing.
