There are some really great answers below. The consensus is that this needs repairs which the seller is in no position to make. Have you looked at doing a renovation loan? There is a program called FHA Streamline 203(k) which allows you to finance the costs of repairs up to $35,000. If you really like this house I suggest you contact an agent below and a foundation repair company. Then figure in the cost of repair into your offer and see if it will work for you. If you do this kind of loan you will need to only put down 3.5% of the price + renovation as a down payment and when you close the contractor you hired to fix the house will go out and repair the foundation and then the house is yours. Call or email me if this sounds like an interesting idea to you. By the way, the foundation does not have to only be repair. You can get new floors, kitchen, AC unit etc... I can give you a full list. Luis 210-845-3133 firstname.lastname@example.org... more

While agents on our team aren't set up to facilitate rentals using the Section 8/Housing Choices program, when we get calls asking about finding properties that accept vouchers, we always suggest that one good way to find rental properties that are set up for those programs is to check with the local housing authority office.
You can find more information about the San Antonio Housing Authority at www.saha.org or reach them by phone at 210.477.6210.
