In your case there do not even appear to be any homes where you have that option. When one does come on the market you may have more ability to get the seller to make necessary repairs due to what they are competing against and a willing buyer may be harder to come by. It all depends on the market. In the Austin area we are slowly moving towards that of a seller's market where willing buyer's may not have as much ability to force a seller to make necessary repairs as there are more willing buyers on properties that are priced correctly and in generally good condition.
Best of luck to you.

I hope you can eventually locate a suitable property but due to the requirements placed on the selling side of the transaction under your loan guidelines, your pool of available properties will be severely limited as fewer and fewer sellers wish to be involved in the gamesmanship of these government assistance programs.
