Low credit score mortgages are available in AZ, But these loans require higher down payments and interest rates. If you instead spend the next 4 to 6 months working on increasing your credit scores, you will likely be surprised how quickly your scores will increase!

7 Ways To Increase Your Credit Scores Quickly:

1. Pay down Revolving balances to 50% of credit lines.
2. Pay off small collections and request paid in full letters.
3. Pay off Collections & Judgements after negotiating reduced.
payoffs, &/or letters stating accounts will be removed from bureaus.
4. Build 3 Positive accounts by running small balances and paying
at least the minimum monthly payments on each card every month.
5. If you don't have 3 opened accounts, try to open, use & pay a
couple of retail store accounts &/or secured credit cards.
6. Don't run additional credit Inquiries until you are ready to apply
for your mortgage as each inquiry reduces your credit scores.
7. Then contact Steve Bernstein at

Rebecca Kallhoff Team answered:
That would be nice for the buyer, but in reality if there is not signed contract for the purchase of this home, then there are no legal ramifications you have against the sellers. The agent is most likely more to blame for the mistake of listing the house incorrectly then the actual sellers. You can offer that price and see if you can work out a deal. Good luck! ... more

As a licensed Realtor I can't comment on how safe an area is but for buyers I have them review the Buyers Advisory and in which, are the following links. You can click on these to see crime stats for the city, or any city in Arizona for that matter. Hope this helps :) Spirit

Crime Statistics
Crime statistics, an imperfect measurement at best, provide some indication of the level of criminal activity in an area. To check the crime statistics for the cities of Phoenix, Tempe, Glendale, Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert and Peoria, go to or the city of Phoenix website A visit or phone call to other law enforcement agencies may be required.

James Wehner answered:
This property was or may still be in foreclosure. The previous trustee sale date was 11/27/07, but without further research, I don't know if it was postponed or actually sold at trustee sale.

The home has had some remodeling and according to the MLS information, the status of the sale is pending since 3/2. The original list price was $215K and has been reduced to $189,999, once reduced to that price, it went pending in 18 days.

A comparative market analysis reveals that homes in that particular area are selling for $104K - $199K depending on condition, garage or pool.
