Hey there,

I'd love to sit down with you and chat about your situation. Can I buy you a cup of coffee or tea?

Hey there!

I see you are from Charlotte, North Caroline. Are you planning on moving to the Twin Cities? If so, I know of several great mortgage professionals to work with. I'm not quite sure about down in NC though!

Talk to you soon!

Hello Temo0274, you may have to put additional deposit to secure a rental. Is it a judgement on your reports? You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare qualifications and payment.

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 daily automatic emails to fit your search criteria from an agent.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent with down payment and closing costs assistance programs.

The rentals in Stockton start from $616 for 2bd 1ba apt and the single family homes start from $1,150 for 2bd 1ba home. The purchase start from 65k for 1bd 1ba condo in Stockton. Check out the web reference link below...

Hi,
I think you should talk with a current agent about all the information written in the agreement.
If he doesn't have any issue, then you can move forward.
Thanks!!

Hello Toski, it will depend on what state you are buying in. What state is it that you are considering a purchase?

You may consider 3.5% down FHA with a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. If you have lower scores you may consider 10% down FHA with fico scores between 500-579.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. You have to be very careful in credit repair as you can not qualify for a mortgage with disputes on your reports.

You also have to be careful as to what old collections you pay off as they may lower your scores. FHA rates are lower and pencil out better on a mortgage payment. If you are considering FHA you may have up to 2k in old collections without penalty.

I bought a quadrant home in 2006 and I will never buy another one. They threw this house up really quickly to meet the deadline and I've had problems with my siding ever since. My gutters are a mess one is hanging from the house, the pillars are offset so the water drains in the opposite direction from the higher roof and the lower roof. My deck is falling apart underneath (I wish I could post pictures) and quadrant refuses to fix it. If I were you, I'd stay away from Quadrant homes there are many other builders out there. DO NOT BUY a quadrant home or you'll be sorry. ... more
