Yes you can get approved with a 655! You probably don't need to get your scores up anymore. There are Lenders that can do a 600 mid score home loan. They just aren't always easy to find and some try to over charge you on the rate and fee's. I have had a lot of my clients with 640 scores approved for a home loan with The Lenders Network, not bad rates either. If anyone can you get approved they can! ... more

There is math that you can use to figure this out or as one very smart financial expert said, "one week's gross pay should be your biggest bill". You don't want to be house-poor. You still want to live and not be stressed, right? So try to shop with this in mind and I feel, you'll do very well. ... more

Hi In this buyer's market, finding a rent-to-own is easier. Buyers have the advantage, even if they are sellers as well. Thus, the issue of buying before you sell. Nobody really wants 2 mortage payments, so these folks will consider, at times, rent-to-own, in order to pay the bills from a home that hasn't sold.

I am licensed where you are looking so answer some questions for me. What is your time frame and when are you available to go looking?

My job is to assist you in finding a home you can rent, that you want to buy. I got this.

Call me at 610-781-3988 My name is Pam

Hi I can answer that for you. A real estate agent will negotiate all the details you decide you would like with the home-owner.

The down money, the responsibiliities of repairs, the utilities and the time length.

I just negotiated a contract for a buyer that included a lender to assist buyer in cleaning up their credit , a 24 month lease, 3000 down, 800 a month with 200 of that going toward purchase and all the details of both parties written in black and white so everybody understood their part.

There are as many lease purchase situations as there are buyers and sellers. First, come meet with me for a free appointment and we'll put the pieces together..

My name is Pam Carrieri and my cell is 610-781-3988. You can call from 8am to 8pm.
