Hi Kevgosoft,

Yes you can use a gift of equity as your down payment on an FHA mortgage as long as there's equity to gift.

What you will need to do is contact local banks in Manhattan. They will be able to assist you much more than a national out of city bank. Usually, banks will want to see at least three years of income tax returns to verify any income and will need a letter of your intent to either work or where you are going to get your living expenses at. Individuals with technical skills such as nurses, engineers, accountants, and lawyers will usually be given consideration for loans. ... more

Thanks for your responses but I need to clarify that we are the Home sellers. We have done many high end upgrades including an additional Full bath/FEMA Storm room. We purchased property at $164,000 4 yrs ago and have done close to $30K in updates, we are already taking a loss at our asking price of $179,900 but are willing to still pay 2% to a buyer's agent, but this is the reason why that 2% is the best we can do. We are having an OPEN HOUSE this weeked as advertised on the Mercury, from 2-6pm and we welcome ALL BUYER's agents. ... more

Visit the following City of Manhattan web page for answers to your question regarding rental property inspections. There are several reputable property management companies in the Manhattan area. I would suggest contacting at least 3 to interview and get an outline of the terms and costs involved in employing a property manager as well as an estimate on the rent you can expect to receive. ... more

Hi again's me again!

Just because one "can" do something..... doesn't mean they should.
Sure - you might be able to find some program that can get you into a home with no money down, but I strongly advise against that.

As Dan and Michael have noted, home ownership is way more than just getting to the closing table.
You need to have the discipline to save (and that's what it appears you need to work on) for unforeseen home repairs and basic home maintenance.

In addition, any financial planner worth anything (think Suze Orman) will advise you to have a cushion of at least 3, with 6 being optimum, monthly expenses put away in savings.

You have none of the above.

You are young, and should start off on the right foot..................get into a habit of saving up a reserve and cushion for that down payment and other expenses......and then you will be ready to move forward with a home purchase.

Don't jump in, and then find out you aren't prepared to stay afloat!

Just my advice ...........with my Realtor hat on, not my mommy hat!.

Best wishes...........

ps While you're busy saving up for that downpayment and financial cushion, do start to educate yourself on the home buying the time comes, you will be ready, willing AND able!

Good Morning Des,
You have a lot of good things going for you, but there is more information required to give an accurate answer to your question. We are a lender located in KC, and are an FHA, VA, USDA approved lender. Both of the answers already given are correct, but you mention you work for the Govt....have you ever been in the Military? Do you qualify for VA?

I would like to ask you a few questions, if you have the time to discuss in more detail over a phone call please call to discuss.
