My first question is did you list your home with a Realtor? If you did they know how to get your home sold. The right market price is most important but they will have other techniques to get your house sold. ... more

Have you ever thought what kind of credit score it takes to buy a home in Kentucky in 2013. I have supplied some examples below for Kentucky First Time Home Buyers so they can arm themselves with some knowledge and feel comfortable and confident when they take that step to get pre-approved to buy a Home in Kentucky

Interested in understanding how far a credit score can drop with late payments, foreclosure, short sale activity or bankruptcy?

This should give you an idea:

30 days late: 40 – 110 points
90 days late: 70 – 135 points
Foreclosure, short sale or deed-in-lieu: 85 – 160 points
Bankruptcy: 130 – 240 points

To come to these figures, Fair Isaac created two hypothetical consumers, one who starts out with a fair-to-middling score of 680 and the other with a very good one of 780. (FICO scores range from 300 to 850.)

The hypothetical person with the 780 FICO has 10 credit accounts versus six for the 680, plus a longer credit history, lower utilization of total credit limit and no missed payments on any account. The other consumer has two slightly damaged accounts. Neither have any accounts in collection or adverse public records.

Borrower #1 Borrower#2
680 780 Initial Score
620-640 670-690 30 Day Delinquency
595-610 645-665 90 Day Delinquency
575-595 620-640 Foreclosure Short Sale
530-550 540-560 Bankruptcy
Source: Fair Isaac Corp.

640 is the bottom score (again with few exceptions) that Kentucky Mortgage lenders will permit. Below a 640, then you’re in a world of hurt. Even at 640, people consider you a higher risk that other folks and are going to penalize you or your borrower with a more expensive loan. 720 is when you really start to get in the “as a lender we love you” credit score. 740 is even better. Watch your credit!!!!! Check out my post:

We talked a great deal about the different combinations using an FHA/KHC first mortgage with down payment assistance (DAP). The DAP’s are in the form of a second mortgages, some forgivable over time and one that must be repaid. Kentucky Housing DAP’s range from $4,500 to $6,000.
This is how it works.
The first mortgage is an FHA/KHC loan for 96.5% of the purchase price.
The DAP is a second mortgage for 3.5% of the purchase price.
The seller can pay all of the closing cost and pre-paids.
The borrower only needs to pay for an appraisal (unless the seller pays for that too).
Inside scoop for you, I spoke to my source in Louisville Metro last week, they are expecting funding for their DAP program in July. Last year it was $10,000 a pop plus another $2,000 for closing costs. This program requires FHA home ownership classes so sign up soon if you want to grab this round.

Yes, definitely a question for your agent. If I'm not mistaken,he or she has to physically insert it as it is not loaded from the MLS.

Hope that its been cleared up for you by now!

All the best!

I'm not 100% sure on what exactly you are looking for, but I currently have a nice 1 bedroom condo listed in the same general area. It is off of Brownsboro Road (2730 Brownsboro Rd. #159), it is 1 bedroom, 2 full bath, and it is absolutely adorable. The condo has a fitness center, large pool, hot tub...the works!

Susan Wesely answered:
Now all you can and should do is, as Joe said, "catch up". In that situation, I would make the payment anyway, then find out why they thought you were current. You had intended to pay, you had the $$$. If it turns out you made an extra payment, you just reduced your principal and chopped months off your payment schedule. That's almost always a good thing (exception is if you have a prepayment penalty - and even then, it may be a good thing). ... more

Hey Noel,

I had that happen to one of my listings as well. There is no way we can manually adjust that. I did contact costumer service on Trulia to report the misplacement of the "arrow" and they took 3 days to correct it. Hope this helps.
