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...

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

Yes, as long as you qualify you can do an FHA loan even though you have another home with a conventional mortgage on it already.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to contact me.

Thank You
Gregg Pomeroy

Unfortunately most contracts specify that if house under appraised EITHER party can cancel contract. In that case, the seller can decide not to sell and there would be no recourse in getting back the inspection and appraisal costs. I feel this is unfair too, but it is what it is. My wife and I have already lost $900 due to an appraisal, and now we are facing another (we are challenging the appraisal sqft on this second one. It shows 1248 on appraisal and was advertised 1362). The problem is in our area it is totally a seller's market. People with cash are simply paying cash above appraisal, so sellers are budging. They like their odds of getting above appraisal and put it back on the market.

The argument is that sellers need to do their due diligence and do the comp comparison. But im not sure how you can if your not a licensed appraiser. Ive seen appriasers flat out reject a realtors comp. It seems to be all subjective and based on personal opinion. I feel this is a real problem since it is playing with peoples lives. Not fair that your fate is in the hands of somebody who could be having a bad day and we pay for the appraisal and have no recourse. In our case of the sqft, I'm personally going to measure this house myself. Somebody is wrong and negligent, and that somebody is going to pay us our fees if agreements can't be made. Either seller or appraiser.

You need to purchase pet insurance. Understand that the standard insurance policy for landlords and property managers does NOT include liability / damage from pets. If somebody is injured or files a lawsuit against the landlord, they do not have insurance to cover it. If you have pet insurance, any landlord will accept you. ... more
