Hi Mikos0086,

Fannie Mae will only do 2 years post discharge if your BK was the result of extenuating circumstances like a major medical issue so you are really going to be better off sticking to FHA.

Rich Reed answered:
Each MLS, and possibly each real estate portal, has rules for how the DOM, days on market, counter is reset. For example, "The calculation of Days on Market (DOM) is based on the MLS #. The calculation of Cumulative Days on Market (CDOM) is based on APN # or address and will accumulate until a change of ownership has occurred or the property is not available for sale and no Listing Agreement is in effect for a period of 90 days or more." Your Realtor should be able to market your property effectively, and proactively address any perceived buyers concerns. Hope this is helpful! ... more

Hi, Sean, most "mortgages," deeds of trust, are recorded with the county. You would probably have to go in person to search the county records. Most Realtors, escrow offices, title companies, real estate attorneys, etc. have access to the records and may be able to help, too. If you're already working with a Realtor, you should ask your agent, many agents provide their clients with property profiles as part of their service. Hope this is helpful! ... more

John Burke answered:
Hi Benjamin,

You can actually qualify for a VA or FHA mortgage 12 months into your chapter 13 BK so if your BK has already been discharged, you can apply right now.

You have to show re-established credit and you have to meet the minimum credit score requirements.

Hi Pamela,

There are only a few scenarios where you would be able to use your ex-husband's VA entitlement.
For example:

If he died as result of his service connected disability or he was KIA then you might be eligible to use his entitlement.

You will need to make sure you are working with a lender (like me) who specializes in VA financing.

Absolutely!
There are so many reasons to sell through a cash for homes company. These include:
Going through a divorce and need to sell
Inherit a property
Behind on your mortgage
Own an unwanted rental property
Have difficult tenants in your rental
Want to avoid paying realtor commissions
You have little or no equity
Have a vacant property
Permit issues
Job relocation
Too many repairs needed!

With a legit cash for homes company, they will review your house, its condition, area and value. They visit your home at your convenience. They will submit an offer to you. You review and decide whether you accept the offer. Closing occurs at your convenience. The offers are fair and all cash. There are never any fees or obligations.

Feel free to ask us any questions at any time! We love to help.

Hi Hay.Nicole78,

I have some really good news for you. Freeport, IL is an area that is eligible for the No Money Down USDA mortgage!

One of the best things about the USDA program is the monthly mortgage insurance is substantially cheaper than FHA or conventional options.

For example: On an FHA loan of $250,000, the MMI (monthly mortgage insurance) would add $177.08 to your monthly payment but on a USDA mortgage it would only add $72.92!

The other nice thing is USDA will actually allow you to roll in your closing costs as long as the appraised value supports it.
