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.

Hello Karengreene42053, do you have 10-15% down that they usually want for a non refundable deposit? How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve? What are your fico scores and credit issues?

If you have lower scores you may consider FHA 10% down with scores between 500-579 and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA. Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Hello Mfaysprog, there may be some that may but not likely with the low home prices in Danville. You may qualify for 3% down conventional financing. You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet any agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice.

How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford? You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in Danville, VA.

You call the crimewatch # at 602-262-6151 and reports the disruption. They can be fined up to $1000 for each time you have to call them out. You might have to wait a few hours or they may come right away depending on emergency calls they have. It's a pain to wait and not all the officers are good about doing it. You have to have the officer come to your door in order for it to be filed as a complaint. You can use if you should have to take them to court later. I have had to call them out 3-5 times in a night because of the extreme noise from my neighbors. There is not time of the day or night limit. If there is a disruption in the day or night you can call and file the complaint. The fine goes on the power bill so there is no way they can get out of paying the fine. Hope this info helps. There is City ordinance on loud noise you can look up online. ... more

Frank S. answered:
Hello Tiera Palmer, no you can not consider a mortgage until disputes are removed on any account that has a balance. 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.

You would need a minimum 500 fico score to qualify for FHA financing. You may consider 10% down FHA with scores between 500-579 and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

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