Best case 97% LTV (loan to value) with No PMI

For illustration purposes only, Example: 400k purchase price -3% ($12,900) = $388,000 loan amount

Can you imagine someone with decent credit and $15,000 in their checking account, throwing away $2500 mo. in rent


being able to buy a $400,000 home for even less per month?

Usually these renters fall into one of the below categories:

1. they're unaware this is possible

2. they're Nomads

3. they're BTR! (BORN TO RENT)

Sure, there is no reason why not. But have a good real estate attorney on board to sort out the titles/homestead/who is signing for the loan etc issues; especially since you are not yet married.

I believe I replied to a similar question you asked about listings. It takes days as you were explained by the other agents for listings to be updated on this site and many others. Sometimes the update is not understood by the system as I often see my listings available for sale when they are actually pending contract for weeks. Why struggle on your own when there are hundreds of real estate professionals out there to assist you? ... more

Criminal activity should not be researched on a real estate on line forum. You should visit our local police department where I am sure you will find accurate information.

What area are you interested in? I own a home that I am looking to sell soon, but I am open to entertaining the lease to own option if it makes sense for both parties. If it does not work out, I agree with the other responses, finding a lease to own is very difficult. ... more

Daniela Marshall answered:
This happens often as 2nd lien holders try to squeeze as much as they can from sellers and buyers. You might want to ask you agent to find out if the 2nd is a mortgage or a line of credit. In my experience when the 2nd is a line of credit, the 2nd lien holder is much less negotiable because the debt is not wiped out by a foreclosure of the property but it becomes an unsecured personal debt and still collectable. ... more
