Please don't be discouraged, there are ways to rebuild your credit if you're denied, and 600 is not so bad, your only 20-40 points away from getting approved, and with some minor adjustments you can achieve it. I just closed on my home, my credit score was 580,599,623 in 4 months it shot up to 660,692,720. A co-worker told me about a credit repair company, the consultation was free so I said what the heck and gave it a try, she gave me some simple instruction I did it and my equifax jumped up by 28 points. If you're interested her phone # is 347-500-6371 call or text and tell her Anderson sent you. Good luck my friend ... more

I am not sure what you mean by Obama mortgage, but if you purchased the property, It is YOUR Mortgage! The documents that you signed for the mortgage should refer to whether you can rent the property. Are you residing in an area that has rent restrictions? ... more

Hi! There are benefits to each type. With an older home, you are more likely to find one in a neighborhood that has a larger yard, plus you can get a feel for how established the area around the house is. With new construction, yards are typically smaller, but you are getting the latest in construction technology, benefits of new home warranties, etc,, and it's usually a little more apparent if the neighborhood caters to young families. An important thing to keep in mind is that new homes are much more energy efficient, which helps keep monthly utility bills lower. If you would like some help determining which way to go and next steps you should take, you can private email me at or call me at 317-652-5157. Have a great day! ... more

You really need to set down with a Realtor and discuss your options. Renting may be a good option because the rental rates are higher at this time due to demand. Selling your home may be a better option due to buyer demand and low inventory at this time. It really all depends on you and you what would be best for you.
Good luck

Are you asking as the home owner or the lessee? If you are the owner/landlord then yes, there is a tax benefit for you. You should consult your accountant for details. If you are a tennant, and planning on obtaining a mortgage at the end of the lease term then no, you are merely renting at this time. ... more

Beth Reirdon Youngs answered:
Could you elaborate a little more? I am gathering that the house was in pre or in foreclosure and the owner paid the mortgage off before the that correct? If the owner did not loose the house to foreclosure then it cannot be reported as a foreclosure. However, since they were in arrears, it most likely did show up in credit report and score. To be sure, the owner should pull a credit report and see what has been documented and check with their mortgage co to see how it was reported/settled. ... more
