Financing on USDA home loan not going to be approved..contract signed and closing coming up..OPTIONS?

Philip Sencer answered:
Renting with a foreclosure, and not because of a job loss. What's the best course of action to get a landlord to even consider you?
They tend to consider you more than you might expect, but offering a higher security deposit can help. They look at your overall financial picture, not just the foreclosure.

Buying without 20% down? Is it really that bad if you can afford to?
