Addison Realty answered:
We send all of our clients with credit issues to a local company called Home Loans For All. They work with clients nationwide though and they've done a great job for us so far. Hopefully this helps anyone looking to buy a home that has credit issues. Don't be discouraged if a lender denies you. Home Loans For All can typically find a lender. We highly recommend their team. ... more

Benny Spensieri answered:

The best place to search for a home “Sales History” is the County Property Appraiser website where the home is located. Just click in the “County Name” with the words “Property Appraiser” and go to the “Sales History” section.

Remember, what the home sold for may not be an indication of what the current value is. If you’re trying to find the current value of a home, ask a Realtor to prepare a CMA that will indicate a close range of the home value. Give me a call and I’ll send one to you or go to:

and click on the “Market Evaluation” icon.

I hope this helps!

The Ward Team answered:
Buying your first home can be a wonderful experience if you are prepared. We suggest a First Time Homebuyer's consultation. This free session will enable you to find the right home, best financing and save you time and money in the long run. Many buyers are excited and impulsive. That is the perfect recipe for financial disaster. Take your time. Consult with a Realtor who specializes with first time homebuyers and learn the ropes from a professional.

William Polack answered:
Yeah, I'm probably late on answering this one, but better late than never. The pro of doing a cash out with FHA is that you may borrow up to 85% of the value of your home. You will need to have mortgage insurance, however the premium is half that of the 30 year fixed rate and you need to hold MI for minimum 5 years with your house in a non-declining market plus have 22% equity in the property before dropping it. As Ms. Clarke mentioned, too many other parts to the equation to quote rate. It comes down to service and Ms. Clarke seems to know what she's talking about. ... more
