Sounds like a slam dunk to me.

Unless I am missing something. I do specialize in getting the lowest rate possible for people with less than perfect credit.

If you are buying (meaning you do not own it yet) a multi-unit property then you cannot use any of the rental income for down payment or it'll have implications - as the rental income belongs to the owner (the seller) so if they were to give you any of their rental income as the down payment it is treated as an "inducement to the sales price" and would reduce the value the lender uses $4$ - meaning if you are buying a place for $100,000 and it appraises for $100,000, and the seller gives you $1,000 (for whatever reason) then the lender treats the value as $99,000 and will base all loan-to-value calculations off of that. ... more

Hi Didi, although most townhomes have a similar legal structure to condos they are not treated as such when being priced and most lenders do not charge additional fees for townhomes (often PUDS) Condos are a completely different beast.

You must first find out if your lender/broker locked-in your loan rate and for how long was the lock in (10,15,30 days)

When you say contract I assume that you mean that you signed the closing documents, so if that is the case most likely then the rate was already locked in because it is required that the rate be locked prior to closing and in that case there could be no further changes to your loan unless your lock-in rate expired during the 3 day recission period and then that would give the lender/broker and opportunity to change the rate and or costs to cover any possible losses to his yield spread (YSP) from any changes in your old rate. It's a little complicate however any responsible (professional lender/broker) should have made you aware of these possible changes. Any changes which adversely affect your rate or costs most be re-disclosed prior to closing and failure to do so could be costly to them.

Your best bet would probably be the FHA 203k loan which has no limits on repairs other than the maximum loan amount for the county the property is located in as well as what type of property 1-4 units. Go to...

Or, you could get an alternative to the 203k loan that is a regular conventional loan if the repairs or no more than $15k.

Any questions let me know, good luck to you.

Yes, absolutely. Just be sure the appraiser is familiar with the area.

Doug, be careful! Why are you having difficulty obtaining financing on a co-op? Resale could be a problem if the new buyer can't get financing. Co-ops generally sell less than condo because of this. AND Wells Fargo may be able to help with the loan. ... more
