Your credit rating should be qual or higher 600 FICO score.
If you have lower credit score, you can improve it. There are a number of ways to do it. You can search for them on the Web. ... more

Your best option is to draft up a sale contract to purchase the home at $120,000 as this would pay off the current mortgage including the taxes. Your loan options would be between a conventional loan with 3% down or FHA with 3.5% down and UMPI fees. You will have the option of a $43 monthly PMI with Conventional loan and it will eventually go away when the loan is reduce to 80% loan to Value or $81.00 monthly for FHA PMI that stays with you over the life of the loan.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this does not require us pulling your credit and will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted for a FREE no obligation consultation.

You should be able to go in an edit the listing. If your the Realtor claim the listing and correct. Much better when you claim the listing and then add other information your self.

Good Luck

Contact a local agent and have them look in the MLS. Sites like this won't be as affective and you do not pay the agent, the owner does.

I would ask to have it inspected by a certified septic and well inspector before agreeing to that. It can be very expensive. On on of my offers the septic came back bad and the cost just for the septic and finger system was 12,000 + also would have to pay to hook up to city which was 3000.
We had to drop out of that situation. I would know your numbers before you sign on that one. Way to risky.

Hi Patricia,
I saw your request on Trulia so I looked for homes in Avon with 3 acres of land. There were 14 homes that came up on the MLS. One was below $250,000, One was $290,000 and the others were over $300,000.
If you would email me and let me know if you are wanting to stay in the Avon area or if you are open to areas outside of Avon, I would love to help you find what you are looking for.
We just moved from Avon to a 5 acre "farm" as we call it, and we love it!
I would also need to know your price range.
My phone # is 317-480-9460 and my email is I am an associate broker with Carpenter Realtors and I would love to work with you!

Trulia may not have much control over someone advertising in the forums. The best you can do is possibly flag it to bring it to Trulia's attention. The problem is that it only takes a day of being up to scam someone before the scam artist disappears.

I received a call from a person who had gotten scammed by someone using an actual rental listing by someone on Craigslist. He wanted him to meet him at the property. When the prospective renter showed up, the "landlord" did not, but called him and asked for a partial deposit of $300, to which he complied and wired the money to Florida. He never heard from him again.

Can this happen with a property on Trulia? Sure. It can happen on any property for sale on any website. Someone could even use your property, and you would never know it.

The bottom line is, never, never, never give money to someone unless you know the owner of the property, have a contract and the keys, and have entered the property to see it.

You can verify ownership of any property at the county offices.

Also, this is another excuse to look up your local Realtor, as he or she is licensed by the State, belongs to the Realtor association, and is verifiable by a license number.

The state has a down payment assistance program. It used to be just for first time home buyers but is now expanded to others. It is the lesser of 6% of the purchase price or $7500. Qualifications include income limits, dependents, and other requirements. It is a great program and I've helped a lot of folks become home owners using this program. Although not all lenders participate in the program, all areas of Hendricks County qualify. Not all properties are suitable for the program though and must be at habitable and safe. Please email or call me if you'd like to know more. I can also refer you to several lenders experienced in this program. ... more

Hi Ryan
The answer to your question is not a short one. There are many items that a lender has to look at. One being the possibility that the one that has the 720 score apply for the loan by themselves. The 587 score is to low for a lender but a good lender can help you in figuring out what you need to do in order to get the low score up where it needs to be. The best thing you can do is to talk to a few different lenders and find one you click with. Your going to find one you like better than the other ones. If you need help in finding a lender or just have questions in general feel free in contacting me anytime. If you need a lenders name I would be more than happy to recommend the lender I always use. Call to text me at 317-430-0443. Good luck. ... more
