Sally Grenier answered:
This property isn't for sale yet. The foreclosure process can take a long time. Once it's done, it can take more time for the bank to hire a local agent and get the house listed for sale. If you're in the market to buy, it's best to hire a Realtor as your Buyer's Agent. Your agent can create a search in the MLS so that you'll be notified the minute it's listed. ... more

The large down payment will help offset the higher rate due to low credit score. However, the 615 score will still be used for qualifying. Contact us to discuss all options.

It is hard to fully understand by what you mean with "bad credit" because we need specifics but I will try to help you. Of course having bad credit can hurt your chances of getting a loan, but it possible with certain lenders like myself. There are some lenders, like myself, that are able to give out loans with credit scores as low as 580 and sometimes lower when its due to hard situations. Even if you are under the credit score of 580, I would be more than willing to point you in the right direction if you'd like to contact me. Either way, I would be glad to speak with you and help you get the loan that you need.

Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can!

Good Luck!

Linda Walters answered:
Obviously, all the answers to your questions are in the contract you signed. Any new owner in a short sale or otherwise would most likely have to adhere to the contract--they cannot under normal circustances turn you out on the street. But some good legal advice is definitely in order. If you want out of this mess, you should demand return of your 415,000 less the market rent for the time you have lived in the home. ... more

Do you mean a Section 8 voucher from HUD? Contact a local Realtor in Santa Rosa County and if you have a Section 8 voucher you may be in a good position to find a landlord willing to rent to you.

Contact a Realtor immediately and there may be a chance you can do a HAFA short sale and get $3,000 at closing as an incentive. The Realtor may be able to get the lender to stop the auction--unless it's only a week away. When is the scheduled auction date?

Otherwise, I do know that if a well known lender takes the property back they will often give you "cash for keys" rather than go through an eviction.

And you should contact an attorney or if you cannot afford an attorney, contact the local Bar Association and they may be able to refer a "pro bono" (free) attorney to you.

Good luck and so sorry about the loss of your parents.

All the best,

Hi Milo,

After the foreclosure auction it is 10 days after that the high bidder or original lender will get a "certificate of title".

If the lender got the property back, it's possible they may offer you a $1,000 - $2,500 as an incentive to move out.

Now if an Investor bought it, they may file an eviction action at the courthouse and have the sherrif escort you out.

If you have a signed lease, you may be able to stay until your lease expires.

I'm not an attorney so you would need to talk to an attorney to verify everything.

All the best,
