Kathy Burgreen answered:
I assume you would be paying the monthly rent (lot fee) from your trust fund or disability check? You should be fine because you can prove it. The management / owner of any mobile park just wants to see proof of income. It makes no difference where the income is coming from. You just need to prove that you're responsible and have the finances to pay the monthly rent on time. The issue with a trust fund is you will have to convince management that you will NOT spend the money foolishly on yourself (vacations, cars, fancy clothes, etc.) If you can convince them that you will only spend it on food & basic needs, you should be fine. ... more

Hello Ricardo and thank you for your service sir,...

As a Vet, are already eligible for a VA Loan which entitles you to "No Down Payment"

Also,... It is possible to negotiate closing costs when offering to purchase a resale and with certain developers,.. all of the closing costs can be paid when using their preferred lenders.

I've helped several vets get into Brand New Homes this year with absolutely no money out of pocket and I would be proud to help you do the same.

Feel free to contact me when you have a moment and we can review your criteria and set a strategy to get you into "Home Ownership" as soon as possible....

Never look down on anybody...unless you're helping them up.

I am in the Indianapolis area and have had experienced some financial hardships in the last 5 years. I am married and have 4 children. I recently got a large raise but have a very low credit score. I have lived in my current home for 9 years. I would like to buy a larger home in the Indianapolis area for my family. Does anyone have any suggested lenders that I could speak about option wise? I can put down 20% after my house sells.

Please advise. Thanks so much!

Have you sent a follow up with your agent in regards to the status? Most of the time the listing agent will present the offers to the seller and typically takes a day or two for them to decide if they are going to accept or counter any of the offers. ... more

Hello Anne,

To answer your question, having your parents on your loan won't necessarily automatically disqualify you for your home loan but could disqualify you in the end as you would have to factor in their DTI (Debt to Income Ratio), Credit Scores and Incomes.

Check out my profile and give me a call that way I can filter through the numbers and give you a more definite answer on if qualify today!
