possibly. a lot will depend on how bad your credit is, how stable your income is, how much income you have in relation to your debts, and so on. think of it from the stand point of the person selling or renting you the house - how do they know you will be able to keep up with the housing payments if you have poor credit? do you have the ability to put down a significant deposit and/or pay an "option consideration fee" for the rent to own agreement? you may want to consult with a local lender who can work with you on repairing your credit until you can qualify for a mortgage. good luck, and happy hunting! ... more

Not a bad town to settle down. I live here for about 2 years and it is very quiet. Based on my observation of other houses around , it appears to me that people don't either have much money to fix up their houses or they just don't care. One other thing that I noticed is that the sidewalks are uneven, meaning most of them are lift up by gravity. Not to many major crimes here, only few that goes to county jail for minor offenses, People keep to themselves and so far I haven't seen hoodie people, hanging out in the streets. According to others , maple shad is a smaller town and I disagree that people know your business or remember your name in the pizza shop. There are few bars around but I don't see that is causing any sorts of damage to community. Maple shade taxes are about 5500 and up. I don't know much about the school systems but my neighboro recently put up her house for sale because they are moving to cherry hill for better high school education ... more

Hello 123456,
Thanks for your question. You are not alone. Several people I had talked to recently have the same situation. The best thing you can do is talk to your or a loan officer who will tell you the steps to improve your credit. After a few months you can have them check it again to see if it has been raised to the level you need.
There is hope if you follow the steps they tell you. Do not pay for credit repair. It is always better to apply any funds to your debt.
Once you are ready I will be happy to assist you in finding the home you will be happy with.
Good luck to you!

James L Steccato answered:
I couldnt say it any better than anyone else has to this point, just to ad a few things though.
A home warranty is always a good thing especially on an older home with aging utilities and appliances.
Discuss it with your agent you may want to put it on up front or use it later as a negotiating tool once home inspection issues arise.
One thing I will say for open houses.If you use a company that promotes open houses utlilize this tool to the max.If one can be done every weekend until it sells all the better.
Although it may be true that the home being held open that day rarely sells at the open house, 3 out of 10 listings do sell as a result of an open house program.(PROGRAM being the key word here)Meaning: if you use a company that has an open house program it means that it coordinates throughout the neighborhoods in which they are being held.(Networking of office & company Agents) Many of us keep a list of all the opens being held in that area that day,and direct people to them according to their needs.
If in your area you have ten open houses it means that agents while not selling the open house they are sitting are meeting buyers in different price ranges and many of them may fit your situation.
They can then be directed by agents at other open houses to your home because they've visited your home during an office caraven and are aware of it's style,details ect.
They may also visit your home with an agent they met an an open house around the block later that week.
The open house also provides critical information to you.How many times are you going to be able to get useful feedback from 10-15 buyers in a 4 hour period. You may not see 10-15 people in 2 weeks.If youre wise you'll use this feedback to get your listing in line with what the public expects of it.
Wichever way you go I think you have received a boat load of good advise here.
I wish you the best of luck in your sale.
