Kathy Burgreen answered:
Your eviction is the issue - not your credit scores. Landlords feel if you refused to pay your rent for whatever reason before, that you will do it again to your new landlord. This gives landlords a reason not to rent to you. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You can try going thru your county, city or state and find out if there are down payment assistance programs or grants for first time home buyers. I believe they exist in all 50 states, however, requirements vary based on income, credit and whether you need to take a home buyer class. Also the down payment amounts vary depending on your state, city our county's budget.

Another option for down payment is family members who can gift you cash for a down payment. The family member will need to complete a gift letter stating the money is not a loan. Finally, there is your retirement savings account. I do not recommend withdrawing from your retirement account but it is a source for down payment. You will pay a penalty and income taxes on any amount withdrawn.

The only 2 options for $0 down payment is if you served in the military and are eligible for a VA loan or if you are buying a rural property and eligible for the USDA loan.

Austin realty junkie answered:
It's not one of the popular neighborhoods in Austin but we like it. My husband and I could pay for a much smaller home in central Austin but really like the space we can get in this neighborhood. We moved here in 2007 and then moved down the street in the same neighborhood to a bigger home a few years later. Harris Branch has really improved and our house has already appreciated almost $100,000 in 2 years. The landfill is the main reason that people steer away from this neighborhood but it really does not bother us. They already closed one of them down and the other will be permanently closed in a few years. The foundation does shift here but we found that this was less of an issue with older homes. We had engineers check out our foundation, and they said the shifting is normal and fine. If your home is newer, you need to water the foundation. Overall, this neighborhood is diverse and a hidden affordable gem. ... more
