Hi Megan,
It will take a score of 640 to get approved for a loan and as far as approval to purchase a home for around 130,000 it will depend greatly on how much debt you currently have. Different loans do vary but most don't want you to have more than about 43% of your gross income going out including your house pmt. that would put your total monthly pmts for car pmt, credit cards, house pmt, etc. not exceeding 860.00 per month. I would be happy to help you with finding an affordable home. You can email me at or call 270-782-9088

Since your contract is nearly up, I would encourage you to start looking, online at least, for other options. Your agent should send an email to the listing agent telling them that unless the bank approves soon, you will be moving on. The bank may not care, but if somehow someone there does, it might help.
Losing paperwork is one of the most common reasons short sales take so long and often fail to close. I know from many personal experiences that I have successfully faxed in all that was requested. I've followed up within 48 hours and had the bank confirm my fax was received and it was complete, only to have time go by with no news and finally have someone at the lender tells me forms were missing. It's a very frustrating situation.
Regardless of the reason or who’s to blame, start working on two tracks. Tell the listing agent your done when this contract expires and start examining your other options.

Construction loans have become a little more difficult to do. Most require 20 to25% equity. Purchasing a new home turn key would be much easier to do. We often build custom homes using our credit and have a turn key price at the end. If you would like to discuss a custom built home, please give me a call.

Connie Redmon answered:
Linda -
Rentals in this area are at a premium right now. We are experiencing an increase in the number of military and civilian personnel and many have opted to rent rather than buy. Which is a shame - if you have a good credit score and steady income why not spend the same amount of rent money on a home of your own, which will provide you with some equity over a period of 5 years of so? AND, owning means you have control of maintenance, paint colors, etc. If you have not already, I would suggest contacting the Property management offices of the various real estate agencies as most will have one. Award Property Management can be reached at 270-351-0717 - it's a starting point. ... more

You need legal advice! We are Realtors (Real Estate Professionals), but the law does not allow us to interpret the law. We cannot give legal advice., you are asking for legal advice. Again, if you have any questions about the enforcement of any contract, you need to seek legal advice from an attorney-at-law. Do NOT accept the advice from anyone other than an attorney. ... more
