Apparently you don't. Trulia just leaves it up for people to waste theirs and your time calling and emailing you for eternity on a house you rented three months ago and have made multiple requests to take down from all the other $hitty parent sites related to Trulia in all its $hittiness.

$hit website. $hit service.

I think that questions is like a lot of questions. .... It depends.

A lot depends on your situation.

Are you looking for down payment assistance?
Will you be putting 20% down?
Do you need a renovation loan?
Are you a first time homebuyer?

There are many different loan programs out there, and different lenders offer different ones.

I'd be happy to make a suggestion of a lender based on your goals.

Hi Anthony,

Couple things going on there. It sounds like she is basically self employed/1099'd. That's going to be really tough to do without 2 years, because that is the point basically where income is considered stable and verifiable.

Also with the limited credit history, that raises an issue of stability.

She could definitely apply herself without you, but believe it or not your 630 credit (if long established) may actually help.

I would say the non-occupant co-borrower route (co-signer) would be the best road to go down. FHA permits you to qualify off of her income alone so that might work. Feel free to give me a call or message me and I can walk you through the process to see what you can be approved for.

What you are referring too is know as HMDA data. HMDA data provide information regarding home mortgage lending activity. PMIC data contain the same variables as the HMDA data, but are voluntarily reported by private mortgage insurance companies. PMIC Aggregate & Disclosure data is available through 2012 only. HMDA and PMIC data generally become available by September of the year following the calendar year (CY) of the data. The data and reports can be used along with the Census demographic information for data analysis purposes. See

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, (this does not require us pulling your credit) that will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted via my profile information for a no obligation consultation. My Office hours are 08:00 AM-08:00 PM Mon-Fri and Fri and Sat 08:00 AM-06:00 PM CST.

Hi Tasargent774:

This question was asked back in June, so I am hoping you were abel to get everything worked out with your agent. It does look like you were pretty frustrated at that time since you asked four questions, all of which seem to imply that you did not understand what the agent was doing or why the agent was doing it. So, just for the sake of everyone who is following this question. When putting a house on the market, your real estate agent should make sure you fully understand all the important provisions in your listing agreement. You do not have to agree to any scheduled reductions, but you can if you like. If your agent wants to reduce the price of your home or wants to reduce it beyond a schedule contractual reduction, you may say "no." The main lesson here is that you should make sure you thoroughly understand the listing agreement. And, if you do not, you really should talk to an attorney who can explain it to you.

Clear communication lines should be drawn with all parties enganged in the selling of a home especially when divorced parties are involved. I would let the Realtor know your expectations - that both parties have a vested interest in the transaction and that all parties need to be on the same page. ... more
