There is a program that I use that provides 10,000 towards your down payment and closing costs. It is a zero interest and zero payment loan that is only due when/if you sell the home. I have closed using this program several times and would be happy to assist you. Also I use a 2,000 tax credit program, which enables you to receive a 2,000 tax credit for the life of your loan.

1-Must not have owned a home in 3 years.
2-Must have been in the same line of work for 2 years
3-Must make more than 25k but less than 80k
4-Must have 1,000 to put into the deal.
5-640 minimum credit score.

The first step would be to speak with a lender like myself that would be glad to help you. Also, do you know your exact scores? The minimum credit score that lenders like myself can do can be as low as 580. So if you can work up your score to 580 or above, then you will be in a much better position. The simplest way to fix your credit is to pay off your debt and revolving credit balance on time. It's also important to understand that your ability to obtain a loan relies on other factors as well. These factors include debt, expenses, assets, employment, as well as down payment, income, and credit. So the best thing for you to do is to speak with a lender such as myself to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you have any further questions or if you would like a loan or refinance, feel free to contact me. Good luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

Rudy Gonzalez answered:
Keep this in mind , no bank is going to invest there money on a property unless the value is there period. The seller is not obligated to go down on price but will have the same problem with the next buyer that comes along with a finance offer. 9 out of ten they will go down on price but they are not obligated. Finance contingency states clearly the offer is contingent on financing , financing for lenders in any contract is contingent on appraisal. You have to have a knowledgeable realtor that does their research and tells you what properties are selling for in the area . Don't forgett seller as well should have a knowlegable realtor who will tell seller this offer unless it's cash could be a waste of time . Besides you can always offer above asking price and use your inspection period to negotiate repairs or what not. Whats your phone number and a good time to call you so I can answer your questions and educate you on the matter in fact ? ... more
