I don't believe that no down payment mortgages for a first time buyer to qualify for are necessarily "always" the case. Whoever that realtor is may have a particular mortgage loan program to offer or to discuss with you. And, if someone puts "no money down" they will likely have a larger mortgage amount to qualify for and to pay monthly payments in relation to. Please remember "always" and "never" are words that are "seldom true"! But, I would think that you may want to interview and question that realtor just like they need to interview and question you if and when you seriously want to offer to purchase a home with a written contract offer. And, at that time it is also customary to leave some amount of money deposit for consideration to show you are a serious buyer. There are also closing fees that need to be available and covered. ... more

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.
