Should be doable if your current job support the amount you want. I've had 2 first time buyers get loans before their jobs actually started, so 8 months is a nice plus. Click on my picture and contract me directly. We'll get you a referral after Christmas. ... more

No, the auction company usually will not offer title insurance and does not offer any guarantees.

You have to go to the Real Property office and check the title yourself.

See my other answer to your question. Buying foreclosures at auction is a risky business. You have to be prepared for surprises.

if you are talking about a courthouse steps auction, then you really can't be sure what surprises might pop up. Just the nature of buying this way.

Hi Vivek,
Mark is absolutely right, homes in Hunter's Creek were built before 2005. There are some new homes being built in Celebration but are over that $300,000 price point.

Here's a link for all detached homes 2005 or later, in Windermere; 3 bed detached homes and under $300k - http://mfr.mlxchange.com/DotNet/Pub/EmailView.aspx?r=1609410010&s=MFR&t=MFR.

You may want to open up to some other areas surrounding areas of Windermere, like Winter Garden, Oakland for more options.

Vincent Paige, P.A . answered:
The purchase contract offer is written the same as any other, accept you’ll want to make sure that there is language stating the purchase is contingent upon borrower acquiring an FHA 203k Loan.

In order to complete the financing of the improvements, you will need to meet with a contractor to determine what kind of work you are planning and how much it will cost.

The contractor will give you a bid, which you’ll need to pass on to the lender.

The lender will order an appraisal to determine what the value of the house will be once all of this work is completed.

Keep in mind, you’ll also need to be qualified for the full loan amount which is based on the purchase price plus the additional cost of repairs.

Once the loan is approved, you will go to closing like you normally would.

The amount that will be needed to do all of these repairs or improvements will be placed into an escrow account held by the lender.

As the work is being completed, there will be draws from the account to pay the contractor.

Type of work for Streamlined 203(k):

Roof repair, gutters, downspouts
Existing HVAC systems
Plumbing and electrical systems
Flooring
Painting
Appliances
Weatherization
Repair, replace or add exterior decks, patios, porches
Basement waterproofing
Window and door replacement and exterior siding
Septic and/or well repair or replacement
Improvements for accessibility
Lead-based paint stabilization or abatement of lead-based paint hazards

What can’t you do? Ineligible improvements under the Streamlined 203(k):

Major structural repairs
New construction (adding a room)
Repair of structural damage
Repairs requiring detailed plans and specs
Any repair taking more than 3 months to complete
Repairs that would necessitate more than 2 draws
Luxury items that are not a permanent part of the real estate
Jacuzzi tubs, hot tubs, pools

What does the Contractor you select need to do?

Provide written work plan and cost estimates
Must include nature and type of repair and the cost of completion
Must be licensed and bonded for each specialized repair
Must agree in writing to complete the work for the amount of the cost estimate and within the allowed time.

There are options for individuals such as yourself who have great earnings but don't have the credit score or all the required documents to prove to a traditional bank that they are "able" to own a home. Our motto is "We Solve Ordinary Real Estate Situations in an Extraordinary Way" We can help you with a couple options:

1. Rent to Own
2. Seller Financing

We can help you get into a Rent to Own opportunity where a portion of the Rent money can be put towards your down payment. When your credit is up to par according to your "traditional" lender of choice and able to get a "traditional" mortgage the bank will see that you have been current and able to pay on a home and intern get a mortgage. If you feel you would not like to go that route or unable to, we can help you with a Seller Financing opportunity!

Feel free to contact us for more information: http://www.ClearVisionRealty.com/rent-to-own-entry.asp
