Forget the title company, call a local real estate attorney immediately. You need to know your legal options under your contract ASAP.

Hello Ericka, do they have any equity in the property? Do you have down payment saved and know your fico score or you may be able to utilize a gift of equity for your down payment to purchase if it is not in the process.

When did they buy and how much did they pay and what do they think it is worth? Are they going to live with you and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford? These things will have to be known and discussed to put together a game plan.

As long as there is time to sell to you and fund before anything happens if they are behind at all. It it goes to the foreclosure process then you can't buy it because it would have to be at a so called arm lengths transaction.

You may consider 3% down conventional financing from a minimum 620 fico score and FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score. You should consult and figure out what options you have. Check out the web reference link below...

Hello Barb, you should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications. You may qualify for FHA financing 2 years after a BK discharge date. You may even consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs to buy and pay less than rent with less out of pocket expenses.

You may be required to put additional months deposits to secure a rental. 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 for daily emails to fit your search criteria.

The rentals in Sacramento start from $600 for a studio apt, from $625 for a 1bd 1ba apt, from $800 for 2bd 1ba apt and single family homes start from $1,095 for 2bd 1ba home.

The purchase in Sacramento start from 70k for 2bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from 120k for 2bd 1ba home. Check out the RENT vs BUY web reference link below...

I think if you’re questioning the integrity of your decision, you already know the answer. Be devoted and act that way so your Realtor can show you the same respect and work hard for you. Also- be realistic about your budget and your needs/wants. Think about how you would like to be treated and treat others accordingly. I’m sure there’s issues in your line of work where you could get the “shaft”, don’t be THAT person. After all- you’re looking for a home to grow loving memories and have good energy in, that has a small chance of happening if you are upfront, honest and most of all loyal. ... more

I'm a faux painter for 27 yrs and know houses! I've been a landlord too. I was shocked when I couldn't get an agent to show a property they listed under $50,000 in Tn!! I'm a cash buyer!!! So I started thinking to get licensed and allimate those agents that feel like little houses aren't worth their time!!! Little investments turn into bigger investments!! What do u think? ... more

Katie Marie answered:
As a landlord I have a duty to the neighbors to verify who I am placing in my rental homes. How can I properly vet a tenant if I cannot even confirm their identity? Many online screening services fall short of proper background checks. Having a photo ID on file gives me a name that I can search in various counties' databases for court cases, both criminal and civil. Before I knew how to search this on my own I was burnt by a tenant. I'd be much more concerned about a landlord that DOESN'T require a photo ID than one that does.

Also, in the city of Aurora all landlords MUST have a photo ID of their tenants and background checks ready to show the city Crime Free Housing inspectors whenever they request one.

We listed our home in the MLS with our realtor for rent or sale. It is in the White Eagle neighborhood, which is home to White Eagle Elementary, one of the best schools in the state.

White Eagle is a vibrant and diverse community that includes a swimming pool, club house, tennis courts, 3 neighborhood parks, and our particular home's $3800 rent includes snow removal and all landscaping. The neighborhood also contains a golf course designed by Arnold Palmer, and a separate golf club and pool.

We are moving out in early January and our house is listed for rent at:

Frank S. answered:
Hello, Get pre-approved and you will find out your purchasing power and your qualifications. You will find out if there is any work that need to be done on your credit reports. Lenders go by the middle score of all three bureaus.

Do you have down payment and closing costs saved or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. You may consider 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score. If you have lower scores between 500-579 you will need 10% down to consider FHA. You will need a minimum 640 fico score to consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be set up for daily automatic emails to study and consider.
