Steve McRory answered:

Instead of dropping price, try offering that discount in the MLS as:

1. Credit towards buyer's closing costs

2. And/or Bonus to Buyer Agent

If that does not work, ask the listing agent to discount their commission from 3% to 1.5%

Remember, Real Estate Commissions are 100% negotiable.

Have the managers work a little harder for FHA approval. Many buyers would be helped and realtors as well.

Agree with Sally. No need for a lawsuit. This is more of a personal issue for you than it is for buying the home. Examples of a valid reason for a lawsuit would be: if there is less than 5 years use for the roof (meaning you will need to replace the roof within the next few years); if the plumbing or electrical needs to be replaced; if you found cracks in the foundation or walls that your inspector missed; if there is water damage that your inspector missed; etc.

An issue with the no carpeting on the floor where an entertainment center is placed means you can ask the seller for a credit at closing. The seller is not required to give you a credit but it doesn't hurt to ask. Is the floor damaged at that spot? You can have the seller to sand and polish it or you can pay for it. No big deal. It takes 1 day to sand and polish a floor. Seriously, I doubt a floor guy will come out to polish 1 small spot. Usually, they will only work if they can do an entire house or large floor area.

You need to focus on the MAJOR things that cost $$$$ to fix or repair: the roof, foundation (any cracks), plumbing, electrical, mold, insect infestation, the floor (any cracks, separation, buckling), etc. Anything else wrong with a home is MINOR and does not cost $$$$.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
A job loss does not affect credit scores. What affects credit scores is not paying your bills, having your home foreclosed on, any liens on your home, etc.

You could have avoided a low credit score. After you lost your job, did you cut all your expenses to the bone - no you did not. If you owned your home, did you try to sell it & move into a rental - no you did not. Instead you chose to continue living as if you were still employed. That was your biggest mistake. Again, your job loss had nothing to do with your low credit score. Now you're suffering the consequences.

Sorry but landlords are running a business. They don't want to rent to people with low credit scores. You will need to prove that you have been paying your bills on time every month & what are you doing to improve your credit score? Having a co signer is not enough. What will work is if you can pay 1st & last month's rent upfront + 1 month's rent as security deposit.
