The issue is what type of mortgage loan you will need - if you do need financing. Residential mortgage loans have a clause that states: "you must move into your home within 60 days from closing." If you fail to move within 60 days, lenders do have methods of checking on you and will call the loan as due in full. This is considered mortgage fraud and is a crime.

Investment type loans do not have a move in date requirement, so it makes no difference when you move in.

The differences between the two types of loans is Residential loans have low interest rates, low fees and low down payment requirements. Investment type loans have high interest rates, high fees and higher down payment requirements.

NEVER lie to your lender or think you can get away with it. Lenders do check on buyers and if caught, it's not pretty.

Try editing the listing on Zillow first if you haven't done so already. Zillow and Trulia are the same company, so any editing changes should sync to Trulia within 24 - 36 hours.

For Zillow, you need to go to Zillow Rental Manager. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
If your home was listed for sale with a brokerage, you will owe a commission to the broker. Listing contracts in NY state: If the real estate agent brings about a buyer who is able and qualified to purchase the home, a commission will be paid." The listing contract is not conditional upon the actual sale of your home - only if the agent brings a willing, able and qualified buyer to sign a contract.

If you sold your home by owner (no agents involved) then you need to discuss this with your attorney. Nobody online can provide legal advice.

As for other penalties, this depends on what your contract states in writing. Nobody online has a copy of your contract.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to afford you can be set up to receive emails to fit your search criteria.

The rentals in Wood River start from $675 for 2bd 1ba single family home. The purchase in Wood River start from 24k for 3bd 1ba single family home.

Hello Czoerun, you should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay about the same as rent and own.

There is a 2bd 2ba HUD condo for 360k in a 55+ Rancho Bernardo address. You may qualify for 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. If you want to save your money you can buy with minimal out of pocket expenses with down payment and closing cost assistance programs and you don't have to be a first time homebuyer.

You can be set up to receive daily automatic emails to fit your search criteria. Check out the web reference link below...
