Hi Becki,

I would suggest you contact a loan officer who can answer your questions. My personal opinion is if your name is not on the loan nor the home, you should be in a position to buy a home in your name. However, I am not a loan officer. If you want me to refer you to someone, please give me a call or email me. You can Google my name "Dee Oliver RE/MAX Magic, Bakersfield CA. ... more

Yes, do the appraisal first. If the home appraises below asking price, by a lot, the bank won't give you the loan, so you will have wasted the inspection fee and the appraisal fee.

I do a lot of 203k loans in Bakersfield. I can do them through Wells Fargo or outside Wells Fargo. If you want it done cheaper, faster and with less pain I would possibly go outside Wells Fargo, albeit wells Fargo is a good company with great loan officers in Bakersfield. I am a broker so I can qualify for more home, 580 FICO with less restrictions, than most bankers. My last employer was BofA(joke) so i know. It's always good to shop so i hope you give Wells Fargo(or Chase, Citi, KSFCU, Robobank), myself as a broker(or Local lending, allcredit) and one of our local direct lender(The Mortgage House, Platinum, GEM,Agape, Acadamy, Imortgage...) a shot at giving you fee sheets and timelines for close so you can make a well educated decision. These are easy loans but can take 45 days to close if your lending team is not that agressive. ... more

Google Rental Application. There are several free ones on line. Call and ask if they will accept one of these or would they email you on of theirs.

Happy renting, Rudi
