You should start working with a Realtor who is knowledgeable and can help you through the process, including helping you with getting pre-approved and then showing you homes that fit within your budget. I am a Realtor in the Plymouth County and surrounding areas. I am also an attorney with years of contracting and negotiating experience that I use to effectively help clients find the home that best fits their needs at a price that fits their budget. I would love to get you started and help you find your home if you are not already working with someone. Please feel free to give me a call (508)317-1209 or send me an email holly.bowlin@nemoves.com and we can start this process for you as soon as you are ready. ... more

FYI - big changes to the MyCommunity Mortgage - 5% down now required...but there are all kinds of unique features about the MyCommunity mortgage. You can also see how much less the PMI is in this article ==> http://homeloanartist.com/2014/03/mycommunity-mortgage/

Lew Corcoran answered:
USDA Rural Development Loan program is great for first time homebuyers - you don't need a down payment. However, both you and the property you want to purchase must meet USDA eligibility requirements.

Brockton is not eligible for the USDA program, but many towns south of Brockton are. You can see the USDA eligibility requirements at http://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.gov/eligibility/welcomeAction.do.

I recommend you contact Jeff Drew at Star Mortgage in West Bridgewater. He's very knowledgeable about the USDA Rural Development program, and can help you determine your eligibility. He can reached toll-free at 1-800-941-5616 or on his website at http://www.jeffdrew.starmortgage.com.

The information about USDA mortgages can be found on his website at http://www.jeffdrew.starmortgage.com.

Make sure you check into development projects that are in the works. I can guarantee that the image that you may have now of the area will be drastically different in a short time. You'll soon see many homes in this area of Brockton going onto the market because of the changes in the area and the negative impact on our residential neighborhoods.. I own a home on the East Side not far from the are that you mention and it's heartbreaking what going on with (over) development . Don't think that any home in the area will be worth what your original purchase price was in a few years. And don't fall for the line that development or additional houses will lower tax rates because it hasn't happened yet. I'd look into Abington, EAst Bridgewater or Whitman. They seem to care more about the character of their towns and their residential areas. In Brockton you might end up with a gas station next door to you. It's relatively safe but City Hall doesn't care about maintaining nice residential neighborhoods. I've lived here for 40 years and if there was any way that I could move out of Brockton I would. LOL...maybe ya wanna buy a house off Alger St (Route 14)? ... more

I've lived on the East side for over 40 years. I live near Routes 14 and 27 - a stones throw from the East Bridgewater, and Whitman lines. It used to be wonderful here but not any more. Too much development going on. There are NUMEROUS development projects that are in the works including a proposed Mosque, 35 + residential units going in just up the street and in the other direction Massasoit Community College is expanding onto a busy intersection on Crescent St. New homes and buildings are being jammed into every possible nook. This area of Brockton is congested as it is and it appears to be booming out of control. So don't think that what you see now will be what it will be like in 1-2 years. It's all changing and not for the better. We have hundreds of vacant houses for sale in Brockton but woods and green areas are being destroyed by over-develpoment.. I'd check it all out first if I were you. Your house value will be lower once all this mess is completed. Once all this development starts you might find numerous homes for sale in the area. Brockton sells out it's long time residents in favor of development. So thoroughly check out what projects are in the works for your area. ... more

Alicia Mcdonald answered:
Lease options tend to be few and far between. Sellers stray from them because they can be pretty risky. Is there a particular reason why you can't get preapproved such as poor credit? I work with a loan officer who has approved some of my clients with scores as low as 580. He also helps my clients repair their credit so if they aren't where they need to be initially, they will be there in a few months. Give me a call if you'd like to discuss further. (774)274-7012

Thanks,

Alicia

An experienced local lender will be your best source.
A local bank (smaller and more personal) may be able to provide some individual attention.

This is best answered by some one who knows both your personal situation and property, and who also knows 203 loans.
If your current lender can't help you, find one who can.
