The big question with any house is price and location. A detailed market analysis would be the best way to determine how your house fits in with your local market. Let me know if you would like me to provide one for you.... more
You can attempt to approach the new homeowners and see if they are interested in selling it to you, but if they just bought the house a year ago, they most likely aren't going to be interested in selling now. Your best option would be to find a similar home that fits what you are looking for. If you would like some help finding the right property, let me know. I would be glad to help out however I can. Thanks!... more
That all depends on the type of area you are looking for. Grand Rapids and its surrounding areas have quite a few different styles of living including (but not limitted to) suburban neighborhoods, country homes on multiple acres, inner city homes, and downtown condos. Different people prefer different styles of living. If you are looking for a place to live in Grand Rapids, I'd be happy to help you figure out which areas would fit you best.... more
Yes, you can buy a home again. One way is to start saving up diligently and buy a modest home with cash. Or, if you like to get financing to get a more significant home, you can rebuild your credit with the credit agencies. They tend to look for certain proxies of credit worthiness like your recent payment history across multiple categories of credit. With a bankruptcy, that just means you'll have to start from zero and spend a few years of consistent, timely payments to rebuild that credibility.... more

Noelia, I would highly suggest that you speak with a loan officer. There are some really good programs out there. Just closed a transaction yesterday where my buyers got 1/2 of their earnest deposit back. However, that was a rural development loan where you can only buy in certain areas. You would have to check with a loan officer to see if the areas you are looking at qualify for this type of loan. There are also income guide lines, you have a have a minimum credit score of I think 620, it also depends on how many people will be living in the home as well. Again, a loan officer would have to help you with this that is well versed with this type of loan.
Of course there is FHA and MSHDA loans as well. These might be good options for you as well. When you speak with a loan officer they can look at your particular situation and decide what the best program (s) are for you.
If you are not familiar with some good loan officer, please go through my website at www.GoMelinda.com and request this information. I will be happy to give you some names and numbers of some loan officers that are very good at what they do!
I hope this information is helpful! Best Wishes!... more
