Richard is correct, most of us even who desperately want or need a home do not feel financially secure. Those of us whose spouses have left us or who lost a job or are caring for elderly parents, or all three, while putting young people through college, are absolutely swamped with feelings of financial insecurity and dread. To say you have corrected prices over 30% still doesn't correct for the 100% sometimes artificially inflated prices from 2003, when many of us bought. Now we've lost those homes or an additional household income and with the loss of the nest egg, our life savings. And many of us have lost our jobs due to downsizing and nothing else. Try getting another at 51 years old when competing with 25 years olds. Committed, smart, hard-working, well-educated people who have massive medical bills are seen as failures rather than the failure clearly being in the lack of affordable health care. Things are still upside down from a moral perspective, and where realtors and mortgage lenders lost their credibility it's hard to regain trust until there is a surplus again, not a want. ... more

Open several lines of credit -- for example a VISA credit card, a department store card, a gas card, and use them and pay them off. Buy a car using credit, and be good about making your payments on time. If you have a hard time even opening one of these types of lines of credit your can do a "Secured" line of credit. You give the bank $1,000 (or whatever amount) and use that credit card and repay it. Good luck! ... more

I can see that you have received a number of answers to your questions already, but I thought I should post something anyway. I have actually lived in England myself for about 6 years (I did my A Levels and University degree there) and have only moved to Connecticut about 3 years ago.

I think that it comes down to your residency status, i.e. are you and your husband here on a temporary visa or do you have a Green Card, as well as to how you are going to finance your home purchase, i.e. how much down payment will you have, will the loan be financed by a local or a foreign bank (a bank that is not located in the U.S), do you have a credit history in this country, etc.

I would also advise you to get in touch with an attorney to make sure that you’re not overlooking something that will slow up the process once you’ve found a suitable house.

If there is anything that I can help you with or if you have any other questions, please send me an email any time --- ---, or give me a call on my cell phone --- 203 465 8066.
