Alan May answered:
The "protection period" you're talking about, protects the listing agency. It typically spells out the length of time that they still are owed a commission, if someone who came through the property, while they had it listed, decides to purchase it.

If there is no protection period (and I'd be surprised if there isn't), then no commission would be owed the former agency.

It should be noted, that if you re-list with a second agency, that usually voids the protection period, once you've relisted with a professional agency.

North Coast Financial http://www.northcoastfinancialinc.com/ is able to lend on owner occupied property within California. Some other states can be considered on a case by case basis.

Due to federal regulations (Dodd-Frank) all lenders (including hard money) are required to verify income and ensure the borrower will remain below a certain debt to income ratio for all owner occupied properties. Investment properties are another story.

Hi Xiodioc336,

That's going to be "tight" when it comes to your debt to income ratios (DTI).
Do you have any other debt like a car loan, credit cards or student loans?

With the numbers you provided your DTI is 44.833% & the maximum on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac loan is 45% so you can't have any other debt & qualify. That leaves you with either FHA as an option or a portfolio loan.

Hi Satnin0800,

If you have not owned a home in the last 3 years you're considered a first time buyer so you're good.

Most loan programs do not require you to be a first time buyer to be eligible.

Hello,

If the property is in "Pending" status, this means that an offer has been made and is in the process of closing.
