A credit repair company will normally charge you. Call a local mortgage company in Jacksonville that does not have a up front application fee. Don't call Navy Federal, they will charge you an application fee. I know several lenders that won't charge you and you only need a 580 credit score. I also sell bank foreclosures and I can find you a home that is way below tax value. Have you found a home yet? Regards, Denise, Century 21, cell 910 750 2721 ... more

I would recommend to check with local mortgage specialist. After all, they are specialist in financing and not RE agents. I have few in mind that I would strongly recommend after having an excellent experience. Good luck! ... more

I just read your response at the bottom...

Nothing is hopeless! You are obviously on the right track! Clearly determined and focused. Stay the course, you will achieve your goal. You may have to start off with something less than ideal but if you purchase wisely it could be potential rental income or when you sell it you can put that towards your dream home.

Also, there is no charge for asking for pre-approval from a lender. That would give you an idea of where you stand now, and where you need to chart your course.

Good luck!

It's never too soon to start looking. The more you look, the more familiar you become with the areas, prices, etc. and are better able to make an informed decision when the time comes.

Here at Century 21 American Properties, we have an "In House" mortgage representative that can get you pre-qualified with a credit score of 600 or higher. We have gotten them done with lower scores but that is an exception not the rule. We look at the middle score of the 3 bureaus and as long as your debt ratio is in line with your income then we can come up with a purchase amount that you qualify for. Century 21 mortgage is here to help facilitate the sales of homes and the fees they charge are very low compared to others in the market place. You dont even need to pay for the appraisal up front as we collect no money through the process. Call me for any help you may need in the purchase of a home! 9140-409-4481 ... more

Honestly, most of them are good to work with and genuinely have no problems getting value for most homes. There are one or two appraisers who are NOT favorites and, if they come up, everyone is on the edge until the appraisal comes back. I have heard of an appraiser telling a Realtor that it was his job to keep home values in check in our area because of the military market, and that he would do everything he could to not let appreciation happen too quickly. Market value is the price a buyer is willing to pay for a given home under normal conditions, without duress on either party. No more, no less. Hope this helps :) ... more
