Nope. Those fees are forfeited once you've spent the money regardless of whether the sale closes unless your signed purchase offer specifically states the seller would reimburse you for them and that would be highly unusual. ... more

Hello! Your best places to check for home rentals are by doing a search for property management companies in your area and searching on their websites or giving them a call. Each one will have its own set of listings. Also, try calling a local real estate company and asking for someone who specializes in rentals. That person can search the local multiple listing system for homes where the owners manage their own properties. AVOID sites such as Craigslist, Zillow and even here on Trulia where anyone can list a home. You'll find lots of scamming going on in the rental fields. Good Luck!! ... more

Hi Brenda, I am a Realtor with Solid Source Realty, Inc. I live and work in Henry county in the Union Grove School District. I would like to share with you a program that will allow you to lease the home you choose. Your financial obligation is limited to one year of rent. The lease can be renewed annually for a total of 5 years. You may purchase the home anytime within the 5 years. This is perfect for first-time homebuyers...individuals relocating to a new market and households that cannot obtain a mortgage.
If this is of interest to you and you are not currently working with a realtor, please contact me, Kathy Lane, 770.883.3995..
Thank you in advance.

Hello sohailny,

This will depend on where your income is tied to. For example, if your income is tied to NY and can not be relocated to Atlanta, you may be looking at a Second Home purchase. In the case of a second home, the underwriter's will need for the location to make sense as a second home (resort area, lake, etc.) However, if you are self-employed or transferring with the same company, you may be looking at a Primary residence.

I would love to look at some scenarios with you and run some numbers.

Brand Mortgage is a subsidiary of Brand Bank. Brand Bank has been around Georgia since 1905.

Feel free to contact me if i can help in any way.

Hi Shirley, This is BeLinda Dumas from Academy Mortgage. Most of the time if you have a minimum of a 620-640 and no late payments or new collections in the last 12 months, your scenario is workable with a 2 year work history, good income and no foreclosure or bankruptcy in the past 2-3 years.

For reference, if you have had a foreclosure, the wait period is 3 years from the date the deed is recorded and if you had a previous bankruptcy, (chapter 7) the wait period is 2 years.

If I can help you in any way, you can email me at

Trevor Curran answered:
Good afternoon shirley_darden,

We see many credit reports with low credit scores (anything less than 620), and often many scores in the 500's. This is BAD credit. If you are one of the folks affected by this terrible economy, you have a low credit score and you have a dream of buying a home, here's some simple advice for you.

It is unlikely you could be approved for mortgage financing with that credit score at this time.

Beware of any mortgage professionals promising you an approval with such a low score. Wait on buying a home. I recommend you take the time to resolve your credit issues.

First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.

Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.

I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.

Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams. Find more from the FTC HERE.

The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.
