Just like any project, the prep work is going to help guarantee a good result. Put your homework in up front, dedicate the time needed to prepare, market and show the property. Engage an attorney so they can be on hand to help with any contract questions or issues.

BE SAFE!! Don't show the property on your own, always have another person with you.

If it doesn't work out, then you can always hire an agent later if you need to.

Yes lenders can go down to a 580 for FHA loans, most banks will not but some mortgage companies will.. I have heard of getting a conventional loan with a 620 credit score. But you have to find the right lender, I would suggest going to The Lenders Network they are a referral company that can get you in contact with the right lender. ... more

I concur with the advice of the others. Stay there until there is a knock at the door requesting you to move. At which time, they often offer cash for keys, which usually entails being out in 30 days. And just because the bank takes the house back on a certain day, it may take them quite a while to come by. If it is less than the remaining 3 months on your lease, you can generally stay until the end; however, they may negotiate with you to depart. And in some cases, remain and pay them.

Some tenants do not like the uncertainty, and they choose to find another place, based on their own timing rather than wait it out.

Good luck,

Hi Christian,

We just completed a Basement situation like this. The owners opted to have a guest suite in the basement. Meaning the bath was off the hall leading to the bedroom, and we finished more space in the basement for a family room and laundry facility. The home looked great and there was plenty of room.
