If this has 2 bedrooms and you are willing to consider renting to a family, myself, my 11 & my 16 year old, I'd greatly appreciate it. I am sorry I do not have any answers for your specific questions but I do know, just stay away from craigslist and padmapper is also a good place to advertise in addition to trulia. CL has become a source for scammers. I am following this question so if you respond to me I will be notified, and we can exchange numbers if you are willing. Thanks. ... more

Hello Hwimbrough62516, they are hard to find in this market. Why are you inquiring for an owner carry? You may already qualify for financing? Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

The purchase in Escondido start from 175k for 2bd 1.5ba condo, from 269k for 3bd 2ba condo and up. You will need more out of pocket to purchase a mobile home and you also have space rent.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

Jonathan Klurfeld, Esq. answered:
It's all negotiable. And as seller chooses title agent in St Lucie the title company would be able to give you a closing cost estimate; or some websites have very rough estimators.

If your agent doesnt know this stuff then I would seriously question their competence and ability to write a contract for you selling your biggest asset to protect your interests. You need to get yourself a real estate attorney as well before this agent costs you big money.
