Lori King, Home Owner in 70068

We can only afford a mortage of 300.00 a month, how can we buy a home in this situation? Is there a special home loan for situations like this?

Is buying a foreclosure an option? Someone please help!

no..not really. That is enough money to cover insurance and maybe property taxes.

That's very little money.

You might consider looking at mobile or manufactured homes. Example: A $20,000 mortgage at 7% for 7 years would cost you $302 a month. Understand that that doesn't include property taxes or other expenses . . . . just the principle and interest. And you wouldn't be able to find a conventional mortgage. For that amount, it very likely would have to be owner financing.

Still, find a mobile home or manufactured home being sold by the owner (many/most ARE sold that way) for under $20,000 or so. Then negotiate the terms and conditions to keep your payments where they need to be.

Hope that helps.

How are you currently living on $300 per month? Do you realize you also have insurance and taxes?
