The two important initial steps are arranging for financing(obtain a letter of pre-approval) and finding a real estate agent that you are comfortable working with that can walk you through the buying process step-by-step.

Good luck,

Keep in mind that your lender, or your buyer's lender will not use an appraisal that you ordered. They will order their own for a new loan. If there was an appraisal done within the last 6 months on the same property, they will use the previous appraisal, typically. ... more

It depends on what kind of bankruptcy? chapter 7 or chapter 13? chapter 7 has to be charged off for 3 years and then you have to meet credit score requirement at that time with satisfactory debt to income ratios..

If it is chapter 13 as long as payments have been made on time for last 12 months and paid on for last 24 months or longer toward bankruptcy pay back to lender then you would be ok to purchase as long as you met the credit score requirement at that time and debt to income ratios.

I agree with the other agents who have weighed in. In the mean time, try a property that's rent-to-own while your credit score improves. You may be able to duplicate your efforts while setting yourself up for long-term real estate success. Best of luck! :) ... more

Either go to a credit union or find dealers who have signs stating "buy here, pay here". Be careful though and do your homework. Some of these dealers sell cars with issues. Carfax is a good source but there are some dealers who will manipulate the carfax info. Interest rates on a loan vary from zero to whatever is allowed by law in your state. In GA, it's 29.99%.
I paid half cash for a car and financed the rest to see how it works. With zero % rate, I have to go to the dealer and pay every 15 days or they come pick up the car. The car was listed as a 2000 Honda Civic LX. It's a DX. I bought it "as-is" so I had to get the brakes done and buy new tires. If you are not a good negotiator, don't go alone. Google search the company before you buy from them.

A competitive market analysis would have to be done to find out what the properties in your subdivision are selling for. Once you find the fair market value of your property, you will then know where to price your property so that you can attract buyers and submit an acceptable offer to your lender.

Also, please make certain you are in contact with the bank so they'll know that you're actively pursuing a short sale option.

Please feel to contact me for furthur assistance.

Best of luck to you!

No offer. Its a waste of time. Its owned in an interest through a Trust by Wall Street investors. I have the right questions to ask the people who you are talking to , but thats NOT THE LENDER!
