Unfortunately, in order to buy a home, a lender will require "decent" credit of at least 620-640 credit score and decent income, and a good debt to income ratio.

I think you would be best served to have your attorney request the seller's attorney to provide a copy of the remediation report on the repair being made. All repair contingencies should be provided through your attorney. Tom HInz ... more

The Internets have all kinds of cool websites that provide mapping tools that will show you where various things are located within a certain distance of an address.

Personally, I like MapQuest. You can select the little icons for shopping, food, gas, etc:

P.S. Be careful looking for rental properties here on Trulia. Most of them are scams. Never ever send money to anyone without seeing it in person. (and make sure they are indeed the owner or property manager).

Good luck!

Hello Cherry,
Thank you for your question.
Normally a weekly rental will give you more income if the property is in a desirable location and a nice condition. You can manage it or get a management company do the work for you.
I can connet you with my network in that area that can assist you with the best areas so you can make a decision.
Best Regards

In today's economy the banks are requiring higher credit scores than in the past, however credit score is not the only factor. They also look at monthly income and current monthly debt as well as other things. If you want to get an idea of what your credit score is go to ( to see what your score currently is. I also recommend you contact a mortgage company if you are planning to purchase a home. They will let you know if you qualify for a mortgage and for how much you qualify for. If not they will let you know what you need to do to qualify. If I can be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me at (732) 239-7452. ... more

Agree with Larry - work with your attorney on structuring an agreement covering the Use and Occupancy that addresses your concerns. While perferable to close without it, it sounds like it makes sense to hold on to your deal.

Good luck to you,

Hi Ana,

Buyers are looking to own their own homes for many reasons. However, if they can not credit qualify, then the price and condition of your home does not matter. We are experiencing a servere national credit crunch and 7 out of 10 buyers can not obtain bank financing.

If you would market your home offering seller financing with less credit score or down payment requirements, you should be able to attract a number of interested buyers and sell at fair market value.

I buy owner financed notes at closing and will pay you cash for the temporary seller financed note so that you could pay off your existing mortgage, if any, and pocket some cash.

If you wish to discuss more about my program and procedures, please feel free to contact me.

Steve Kappre answered:
I amost forgot, Jerry's advice to pay all collections in full is 100% INCORRECT. Paying collections over 2 years old can actually have a negative effect on one's credit. (Typicially one should pay collections iwthin two years of activity) This is the NUMBER ONE piece of credit advice that I hear loan officers (and agents) telling clients. And then that poor client can't buy a home for much longer!

Your best bet is to find an agent you are comfortable with, let them no what you are looking for and they will be able to help.

Jeremy S. Hill answered:

It is always best to do a walk thru of the home. And if you are interested prior to putting in an offer then you should go to the township zoning office. See if there's any open permits. Have the township inspector do a driveby. If the homeowner has made an addition or done other work without proper permits then that will fall on you. You can call me direct at 609-876-5817 if you would like to view the home or will need some other guidance.
