I own property in Texas & want to sell it. There is no home (or any type of building) on the land. I've been notified I'll have to pay the HOA close to $5K in back payments. Can they do this? It's been sitting vacant for many years. HELP. I'm elderly & disabled.There was NO HOA when I bought the lot.
Can you help me?

Pros are that many manufactured homes tend to have additional land that you can continue to build on . Cons are that many lenders do not do these type of loans and and you would have to find one who specializes in this matter. I would be glad to introduce you to one of my preferred lenders that get these type of deals done. ... more

There are 100% financing loans that you may qualify for, however the determining factor would still be your debt to income ratio. I would be honored to introduce you to my preferred lenders that specialize in this matter. ... more

Seller does not need to sign the notice of buyers termination. however a release of earnest money is to be signed by all parties. There is an exception with that depending on the title company. Some require the release of earnest during the option period and some do not. Give the title company a call to confirm their policy. They are a neutral third party and are required to give equal service to both buyer and seller. Id be glad to answer any further questions that you have. Good luck. ... more

I would suggest that you discuss with your attorney. I know they are your parents but it's best to have everything in writing by an attorney so there are no hard feelings later.

We purchased our home five years ago. At closing we questioned the current owners about flooding in the home because if it's location. They had signed a declaration saying they had never turned in a claim on the flood insurance policy. They told us in that meeting at the tittle company with Thier realtor there that the only water that had ever gotten into the home was about an inch partly into the garage which they just used a squeegee. Here now five years later we flooded and with the moisture discovered four feet high all through out the house the sheetrock had been replaced. We found newspapers in the wall indicating a date several months after the tropical storm we had discussed at the signing. They did not fix the flood damage properly. They lied obviously they were affraid we would back out of the sale. Which we would have had they been honest. We are having the home inspected to see what was not done properly. They did not rip out the bathrooms or kitchen areas. Therefore during the recent flood black mold appeared severely in those areas. We feel they did not out in a claim with the flood insurance out of fear they wouldn't get top dollar when they went to sell the home or they feared they would not be able to sell it at all. Either way it's clearly fraudulent. After the inspection report we get what would be the next step to resolve our issue. We now have put in a claim to the insurance company and FEMA. We feel had we known, we would never have bought this home and now we have plans on selling it after the repairs. This will surely impact the sale IF we can sell it. Im sure the price will reflect that this home has a flooding issue.. again. If we can sell it. We had expected to get a very good profit as the home comps indicated selling at a very nice profit. Now we feel we may not even get what we paid for it in fact it's unlikely anyone would want to buy a twice flooded home. Now what? ... more

Active Option Contract
What does active option contract mean?
An active option contract means a home seller has accepted an offer to sell their home but the contract is in the option period. During the active option contract, the buyer has several days to have the home inspected. In other locations, the active option contract is referred to as a contingency period or due diligence period.

In Texas, buyers must make an option period deposit, which is separate from the earnest money deposit. The option period deposit cannot be reclaimed by the buyer if they back out of the sale, even if it's for a reason covered by a contingency in the contract. If the buyer completes the purchase, the option deposit will be applied to the final sale price.

Susie Kay answered:
Did you have a loan? Then your lender is involved in finding out how big your property is.
Did you order a new survey? I would suggest that you be in touch with your lender and the title company that you closed your transaction with. I wouldn't rely on information on Zillow. It's a marketing company and it's not necessarily accurate. You can go to the county website for info.

I hope this helps!

Hi Gingerella,

If your score is 770, you shouldn't have anything to worry about in terms of qualifying for a mortgage credit wise.

There are a essentially 4 programs available that offer low or no money down options.

1) VA is no money down but you have to be a qualified Veteran.
2) USDA is also no money down but you have to buy in an eligible rural area & qualify under the county income limits.
3) FHA requires a down payment of just 3.5% of the purchase price. On a $250,000 sales price you would need a DP of $8,750. The down payment came come from a family member as a gift or you can take a loan against your 401K & we won't have to count the loan against you.
4) Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac both have a program that only requires a down payment of 3% but they both have income limits.

I would see which ones you qualify for & then let you decided which option works best for you.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.
