Hello Dougko, you can just use one pre-approval letter/DU Approval to look at as many homes as you want.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Do you know what your fico scores are and how much you want to invest into the purchase?

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the purchase.

How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford? You may consider 5% down jumbo from a minimum 720 fico score up to 1.5m and a minimum 660 fico score may consider 10% down jumbo up to 2.5m.

If you have the Title of the property. There is a page called the "Schedule A" with most of the important information needed. The Tax map I.D. is based on District, Section, Block and Lot all located on the Schedule A.

Example: District 0312 Section 444.00 Block 03.00 Lot 031.000
That makes the tax map I.D # "0312 444-00 03-00 031-000"

hope this helped

Same just happened to me here in Florida. Struggled for two years to short sale, gave the bank everything they asked for, papers, asking price, different buyers with escrow earnest money (2x rejected). Then they just changed the locks on the house and the house is still on my name on the tax rolls. Then they threatened me I'd I take anything out of the house. What to do? ... more

Hello Camrynjmileslee, you can work remotely depending on what field of work you are in and how far you travel for work. You will need to have received one month of paystubs from your new employment in the same field to fund a loan but you can look before. If you want to purchase a home and rent it out you would need more down payment, like 15%.

You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice.

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 emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford? The purchase in Atlanta start from under 50k but need repairs and will not qualify for financing. You will need to look at homes that are in livable condition to pass the minimum FHA property standards. They start from 50k and up.

Would recommend not working with Pulte in McKinney. Zero follow through, zero commitment to process. Most of our items on our punch list were not completed at closing. Poor quality that wont be addressed. Our lawn wasn't graded properly and is complete mud. Pulte continually gives excuses and allows their contractors to go on vacation even in the middle of closing. We had 3 final walkthroughs that were a total disaster. Our HVAC inspection failed twice from the city and they still tried to get us to close. As a first time owner who just saved 7 years to build this house I can say I'm disappointed and angry. At one point was even told that our house "was the worst one we've had in the neighborhood". ... more

Manufactured Home Financing has improved significantly since the banks have rebounded.
I have 25 years of experience for manufactured home lending in Florida.
FHA, VA and Conventional Lending are all available for mobile homes /manufactured homes.
I even do FHA 203k Renovation Loans for manufactured homes.

The Home must be:

1. On its own lot and FEE SIMPLE
2. On a permanent foundation
3. 1978 or newer
4. It must be the original set of the home and never moved
5. Must be a Double Wide home
6. Must be a primary residence

Many lenders do not like to lend on manufactured homes but we do!

For any manufactured home lending in Florida, you can try:
