A lot depends on whether the State has Funds to refund, for a purchase made
in July 2013, and now being requested in 2014.

You also have to apply generally within the year of Buying the home.

Good luck.

Something to think about. I own a home in CA and one in TX. The difference is I know my home in CA will appreciate way more than the one in TX. It depends on why you want to buy a home. If you're looking for the cheapest home, obviously AL is your better bet. If you're looking to buy a home that potentially will be a better investment, then CA is the way to go.

Best of Luck!

Hi--if this property is in the process of going thru foreclosure, you may be able to purchase it as a short sale provided the seller is willing to do so. If you are not currently working with another realtor, give me a call to discuss.

C.F. - Sorry to hear of your situation. I don't know of the programs mentioned below and they are worth looking into.

Otherwise, your looking at 3 years minimum for you to be eligible again for an FHA loan. it would be 2 years if you only had the bankruptcy without the foreclosure.

Good luck

Erica Ramus, MRE answered:
1. Did you purchase the house with the help of a real estate agent? If so, call that agent right away and let them know there is a problem, and the broker.

2. Did you have a home inspection? What did the report say?

3. Call a good attorney who specializes in real estate matters. Let him know the answers to questions 1 and 2 and let him know that you may have a disclosure issue.

Always follow your initial gut instinct. If you really like the home and cannot find another that fits your requirements, then get a licensed pest inspector.
