If you need assistance for the down payment and closing costs, then you are not qualified to buy anything. You need to either get a 2nd job, work more hours and save more money. Try cutting some expenses - take your lunch to work, make coffee at home, stop eating at restaurants, no vacations, no gift giving, etc.

In about a year, you will be able to buy a home. Which is more important to you?

Amelia Robinette answered:
if you were selling your house and someone said they have a cash offer, but didn't showed less money in the bank than it takes to cover the purchase price, would you sell to them? probably not.

transfer money into one account, or be prepared to show proof of funds from multiple accounts.

shouldn't be a big deal, just think about putting yourself in the sellers shoes and what you would require.

Most of us are already awaiting this kind of insane KOI - Journey of Purity hack download and now it's finally right here. But in its current state, it's a huge oversight of the developer not to allow the screen to be zoomed out. Here is your list of KOI - Journey of Purity hack cheats we have now included for the time being. An awful lot of KOI - Journey Of Purity Hack adolescents felt very let down. In case you have downloaded another KOI - Journey of Purity hack tool other than ours, that probably did not work we can tell simply because there are numerous fake internet sites on the market.

Well, let's see, if I was Wells Fargo & had several transactions to get thru that had higher dollar amounts than yours, I would put yours at the bottom of the pile because the higher priced transactions will get me more money in my paycheck than yours will. Oh and it's summer so everybody wants their transaction to close before school starts and I and some of my colleagues need a 2 week vacation and...
Not meaning to be sarcastic but maybe you should get your money back & start all over again.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore inform yourself well in advance of your search, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate before considering the idea and or before signing any agreement. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

The average price for a real estate attorney depends a lot on location. If they're working in a high-income area, they're going to charge more for closing. As long as you're aware of the local going rates, you should be able to find a reasonably priced attorney to close with. ... more

Sheryl Rizzo answered:
In NYC across from Central Park is the iconic building, The St. Urban, which originally had a beautiful slate roof but due to the cost of repairing and continued maintenance was removed and replaced with a beautiful overlapping copper shingled roof.

The great roof and tower of the 1906 Saint Urban apartment house building was originally a slate roof but had been replaced in the 1960's with a 6,000 square feet asphalt roof. The asphalt shingles were not as durable as slate. Due to deterioration the asphalt and copper detailing was damaged by succeeding generations of riggers, so the asphalt and the balcony running along the 10th-floor level was damaged over time and was taken down instead of repaired. The balcony had shielded the lower facade from water and its removal created widespread leaks. Windows later cut into the mansard roof and produced more leaks. Its $750,000 project roof-work program rebuilt the copper dormers and the turret, putting in new gutters and replacing the asphalt, not with slate, but with overlapping copper shingles, so now it is just as durable as, and weighs much less than, the building's original slate roof.

I am not sure of the cost factor for copper shingles, but if your home is as you stated, "worth-it" then perhaps this is a better alternative., where I have the picture I took and the history of the St. Urban, providing the above info.
