Kimberly Lawson answered:

Yes we offer financing down to 530 credit. It's more than just a score though. There are limits on collections and overall derogatory credit and you could be required to have up to 6 months reserves after closing.

It's very hard to direct you concerning credit and how to improve it without knowing more information. The bottom line is this. With a score = or > than 580 you'd only need 3.5% down payment (plus closing costs if the seller doesn't assist you). If your score is

The owner is STILL the owner.
The rental agreement is still binding.

I don't believe you will be able to get FHA financing. You might see if the any of the local banks can help...Park National, First Federal (Charolette Blade), or Ohio Heritage (Marlise Hitchens 740-397-2277)...maybe they will have a different "in house" loan that will work. ... more

I moved in 2005; however at the time 5 animals or more required a Kennel license. A Kennel license can be had for a reasonable fee; but I believe if you apply for a kennel license your property has to meet certain requirements and you may have to agree to an inspection. Licking County Animal Control is headquartered at the animal shelter. You can reach them at 349-6562. ... more

Jeanne is on the mark........I'm amazed that the historically low interest rates are not percieved in their true light....a better opportunity than the expired tax incentive program for most buyers.

If you missed the tax incentive program.....thank your lucky stars and then get serious about finding the opportunity that's waiting for you.

MLS 2930487 does look great. Your Agent will know what to do. Current trends in our area are : Condition; Staging--it looks great to me, but a professional stager can advise how it looks to prospective buyers; Price--while it seems right, if it is not getting showings, you must change it; Exposure; it looks good, but may need some different approaches. Meet with your Agent, they have these resources. ... more

Brittany Simonelli answered:
If the home does not appraise because it is not worth what you are paying, the bank will not loan you more money to cover the difference. They will only loan up to the current value.

Your options are to make up the difference or move on if the seller is unwilling to lower the price.
