The best advice I can offer you is to simply contact your state real estate commission and ask them. Your question isn't particuarly clear, were you paid a referral fee in NY for people you referred to a comapny in Florida, if so this is perfectly legal you don't need any form of license in Florida. As long as you have an active license somewhere you are entitled to receive a referral fee. You cannot however sell or list real estate in a state where you do not have a license. I wouldn't be overly concerned, unless someone is filing a complaint nothing is likely to happen, but if you are concerned, contact your real estate commission, tell them what happened and I'm sure it will be resolved without your losing your license, At worst you may be remprimanded. ... more

Most loan officers work with credit repair companies. In many cases they are able to raise credit scores by 100 points in a month or two.

Congratulations on buying a new home!
I will assume you did go through with it...

Check out current rates and programs in different banks, not just the one you purchased through.
Then, refinance, if it makes sense financially.

When comparing rates, make sure you are comparing apples to apples:
1) Ask for the note rate (rate you'll be paying)
2) APR - Annual Percent Rate - that rate includes your closing costs.
When choosing by rate - APR should be the lowest you can get.
3) Ask what your closing costs would be - and get them in writing
4) Ask what the process is to lock your rate (until it's locked, it could change)

Hope this helps,

Hello Julio,

There are new programs available that will allow to buy with a bad credit, but they do require more money down and their interest rate is higher. The best line of action is to fix your wife's credit.

You need to find a good mortgage pro that can recommend a credit repair company.
There are many credit repair companies, but not all are legit.

Other things to do is to get rid of your wife's outstanding debt - completely, if possible,
or get it down to 30% of available credit, on all credit lines.

If her credit is "underdeveloped", then you need to open secure credit card lines of credit.
You need a total of 4 good credit lines - 24 months long each.
Make sure that your credit lines are reported to credit agencies - by asking the bank rep.

Additionally, you can contact credit agencies requesting to eliminate the wrong info - if any.
They are supposed to respond within 30 days.

Hope this helps,

Irina Karan

Robinson Seda Jr answered:
I am not going to put down anyone but your realtor works for you. He needs to find you a deal that works, negotiate the terms that meet your needs and find you a mortgage originator that knows what they are doing to close the home fast.

there are opportunities for you to have your dream home.

At Lifter Realty Inc. we work with our clients to obtain the best options for them. We also work closely with a local mortgage originator who is experienced in FHA programs that can get you qualified and ready to close fast.

Visit my site and look at all of the options available in the neighborhoods you want. If not a single family home, then let's get you a fine town home to start. What is important is that you get a start on homeownership today while prices are still low.

Hi! How are your moving plans going along, I understand Southern Command is such an important place to serve at. Doral City is a privileged one since all the schools are "A' rated, so you will have several options to choose for your children it doesn't matter what grade the are in. I'm sure once you are in Doral you will love the special vibe of the city and its strategic geographic location.
Best of Luck!

Jeanette Maal answered:
Hola Angel, el tema de comprar un condo o townhouse aprobado por FHA es un poco complicado pero no imposible... Lo primero, aqui te envio un link donde podras ver cuales propiedades han sido aprobadas por FHA anteriormente:
Sin embargo, aunque este aprobado en esa lista, siempre la asociacion tiene que volver a aplicar . Una de las razones es el seguro de la propiedad: en una asociacion, generalmente el seguro esta incluido en el pago del mantenimiento; debido a la situacion que estamos viviendo, hay propiedades vacias, otras que los duenos no estan pagando la ascociacion, etc. Esto hace que dicha asociacion no pague el seguro (por falta de fondos), por lo que el banco que esta prestandote el dinero, no tiene protegida su inversion.
Espero esto te ayude y si necesitas algo mas, comunicate conmigo:
