I think you entered an Illinois Zip by accident. To get the most accurate answers, you should contact some builders ( or at least Realtors) in your price range and in that immediate location, as prices can vary widely and answers from Realtors all over the country may be less than helpful. ... more

That is a very difficult question to answer, because there are so many variables in building a home, from the type of shingles, to the kitchen cabinetry, bath fixtures, brand of windows, how large of a garage, foundation and on and on.

This is a very specific question that can probably only be answered by a lender who understands all the ins and outs of USDA loans. I assume the house is in a rural area in which USDA loans are allowed. That being the case, I would recommend you check with a qualified lender. However, you can find a lot of information at the URL below. Don't miss the links at the bottom of the page, which lead to pages with additional information.

I hope this helps.

Since you already know you have bad credit, my best advice is to go to your local bank, where you do your banking, to discuss obtaining an FHA loan. Most lenders do a loan application for free. Find out what your credit score is & what the significant issues are in your credit report. If you don't qualify for a loan, ask your lender what you need to do to improve your credit score and your creit report; then, follow the lender's advice. ... more
