To talk to them no, but to get specific info regarding your loan, yes. SImply call your loan officer to give permission if that is what you want

It is always a possibility to negotiate a lower price. The big things that are going to be a factor are:
*Is your offer the only one or are there multiple offers?
*When submitting your offer how does it look? Have you been pre-approved? did you include a pre-approval letter with your offer? are you asking for a long drawn out closing 45+ days?
*How long has the property been on the market?
*When your Realtor pulled comps on the property you like was the list price comparable to recently sold homes in the area?

These are going to play a big part in being able to negotiate a lower price. I hope this information helped, please don't hesitate to contact me with any additional questions.

Your estimation of poor credit may not be the same as the lender. It will be a good move to speak with a lender and determine exactly what your options are at this point. It may not be as bad as you think and there may be simple ways to correct credit issues in a short period of time. Most lenders will be glad to meet with you and give you a free initial consultation.

I would contact a local Realtor who works the area and knows not only the values of the homes, but the nuances of the particular neighborhoods. Sometimes a similar home accross the street from yours could be 10's of thousands different in price due to style, age, builder, etc. don't go by hearsay or by the big realestate webesites that will give you a 'Guesstimate' of what your home value is.

Hi Marsinmidland,

If you are still in a hotel, you have my thoughts as I know this is a tough place to call "home". Here are my thoughts regarding your situation and how I would advise any of my clients in this situation.

- I would definitely speak with a VERY EXPERIENCED mortgage broker who can pull your credit and help you talk through what needs to happen in order for you to be able to qualify for a home purchase. I have several folks I would be happy to refer you to, just let me know!

- I would keep your eyes peeled in the rental market as it may just be a fact of life that you need to consider renting for the next 6-9-12 months in order to make the improvements you need on your credit in order to purchase a home.

- You could also speak with a mortgage broker about the idea of having a co-signer to see if this would be an option.

Please feel free to reach out to me if there is anything I can do to assist!
