Hi Hmrhea,

Fantastic program which allows you to finance the renovation costs for the house and only have a 3.5% down payment. Depending on your financial situation, a lender may also have access to a conventional loan product which also includes renovation financing. If you don't have much cash to work with, an FHA203K is a good option.

Good luck! - Robert Greenblatt

The best answer to this question is going to be provided by either your local loan officer or your real estate agent. They are going to be much more familiar with any governmental programs that you can qualify for. ... more

A person who's retired may buy a house either by paying cash or by qualifying for a mortgage. A mortgage lender will want to know how much income you have (social security, pension, IRA accounts, stocks/bonds/dividends, etc.). If you're thinking about getting a mortgage, start by going to the local bank you deal with and ask them to "pre-qualify" you for a mortgage. This service should not cost you anything, and you won't be obligated to use that bank if you do decide to get a mortgage but want to shop around for the lowest interest rates. ... more

Assuming you have a VISA to be here and work, not hard at all. Find a great local lender and discuss your situation with them, and if you meet the basic qualifications apply and get approved. I work with many international clients all the time and it just comes down to adding their visa status to the standard qualifications. Best of luck. ... more

Great house. I know the area well and I have seen many in this development. The resale is just fine.

I checked out the recent closings..there are noe really that comp.. the closings have bee up to and over 600k

I'd take you in at 485k.. considering the price the current homeover paid for the property.. you would get a steal at 495 -500k.

Call me and lets set up a time to make this offer!
