I need to buy a place by June 2013. Obtaining mortage is the problem!
Don't waste your time asking us, you need to be asking lenders that can research you and your credit. Go see several and ask.

I have bad credit with a prior eviction. But I have a full time job and get paid well.

Home ownership and taxes, what should one know before buying?
First and foremost, speak with a local lender to find out what you can and cannot do.

Are there any rent to own homes in 19120 or 19111. I'm hoping to move by the summer time
