Hello Bart, the best and easiest way is to sell your home in OR and then buy your AZ home with cash. You can refinance your home purchase and pull some cash out once you have employment in AZ.

If you want to discuss loan program options and qualifications feel free to reach out. You may consider from 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score and from FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score.

You will not qualify for financing without employment and would need one month of paystubs at a new job in the same line of work as previous employment to qualify. Check out the web reference link below...

You may need a "chattel" type loan. Chattel loans are for mobile and manufactured homes that may or may not be attached to the land. They are for single wide. Lenders who do loans for mobile and manufactured homes require double wide and the home must be built after 1976 and be permanently attached to the land.

Car dealerships may be an option because they finance cars which is similar to chattel loans. You should also go to This website is exclusively for mobile and manufactured homes. They have plenty of information for you to research.

Real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. is for permanent residential listings only. Lenders who are on this site only finance these types of homes - not mobile or manufactured homes.

If the manager represents the owner, then the owner can't require a separate contract. Everything goes through the manager, or don't bother with a manager and do it all yourself. The lease is a binding document and there are no grounds for eviction. The lease IS the contract with the owner. ... more

Escrow Holdback is the answer.

Yes, the requirement of repairs prior to closing should have been expressed prior to contract. We have a plan where you put your funds with bids to repair the home at the title company and with our Underwriters. Once approved you close in 30days. Closing day the realtors and sellers are paid in full. You then have 15 days after the closing to get the job done. Once my appraiser verifies the job is complete and has taken pictures to confirm we are done! I can do this not only on foreclosures but any resale home in TEXAS. Hope this helps future buyers.

Hello Ncmvictoria, yes investors can buy Homepath homes with 15% down. 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 and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Check out the web reference link below...

It depends what the language in your short sale agreement was. Different banks have different criteria. Some just address the short sale itself, others put a time limit in and lastly it would depend if you still owe any debt on the house after the short sale or if it was all forgiven. ... more
