You need to see if your Lender offers the possibility of Limited Documentation loans. Our Bank offers Bank Statement loans that require 20% down and very good credit. Give me a call to discuss.

Asset based loan programs have never been very common and today is certainly no exception to that. Those programs can be extremly risky for the lender, thus very few lenders would even consider that much of a risk today.

For those few lender who do offer an asset based program, its generally for larger loan amounts. Most are usually in the Jumbo range above $417,000. I have only heard of one that will go as low as $300,000.

William Polack answered:
I'm not a lender but I find lenders for people. I have a company that will go to 95%. This will be an 80/15/5 split where the 80% is the first, 15% is the second and 5% comes from you. The higher the sales price, the lower the total combined loan amount will be, also known as CLTV - combined loan to value. Score and location of property will determine if an additional 5% down will be required (declining market). ... more

Hi, Priest. So long as your credit and income are solid enough and the required home values are there, it should not matter which option you choose.

Faith Home Loans, Inc answered:
Yes, it's definitely possible!
Most lenders require 2 years from the discharge date. Your credit scores are excellent, minimum needed is 620. You have all the options at your disposal: FHA, VA, USDA, conventional loans. You can borrow no money down if the property is located in an eligible area.

I would love to work with you and get your pre-approved, but we only lend in Florida. So call a local mortgage broker, who will make sure all the numbers work in your favor.

Good Luck!

Don Groff answered:
You would need to look into a 203K loan as has been stated. Otherwise the lender will use the purchase price as the apprised value for their calculations. If you do not do anything at the time of purchase you will need to wait a full year in order to "own" that equity in the lenders eyes. So if you want to do repairs now talk with your lender about a 203k option or you will not have access to that equity for a year under most circumstances.

Congratulations on the fantastic deal!

Every transaction is different. The deal with short sales is this: you are bringing in a third party, the seller's lender. First, your offer must pass the current owners' requirements. You are adding more variables into an already complicated process.

Once you get by the owner, you are going to have to make it interesting for the bank. With all of the trouble that banks have been in lately, they are very cautious and want to make sure they are making the best deal for themselves.

What kind of potential deals are out there? You may want to ask your REALTOR® to crunch some numbers for you. Everyone is looking a deal, but the banks know what homes are selling for also. They will make sure they get a fair price.

How will you be paying for the home yourself? Remember, cash is king! If you need to close quickly, make a better offer. Remember, your agent should be working on your behalf. Offer the best price and terms you can. A fast close may prompt the bank to move faster.
