Depending on why you had to short sell and your current circumstances the FHA is making special considerations for some buyers 1 year or more after a short sale. For example, if you lost your job and are now employed you might have a shot. Call a lender to see if you qualify.

Brian Nguyen answered:
You are eligible to apply for an FHA loan. The minimum was just reduced to one year from two years. You can also qualify for a conventional loan but then you will have to pay a large down payment of at least 30% because of the bankruptcy. I suggest you talk to a lender, like myself. I have given plenty of loans to individuals like yourself who have either suffered from a bankruptcy, short sale, or foreclosure. So if you would like a loan that fits your needs give me a call.

Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can!

Good Luck!

Hi Kim,
The USDA has rercently changed it's areas. The Website to check is www.usda.gov.I just looked and the boarder of the area is west of SR-85. Depending on where you are looking this loan may not work for you. However, a lender just introduced me to an Arizona program that called "Home in 5" that does not have a "map" to work off of. It offere 5% down payment / closing cost assisance to purchase a home, And you do not have to pay it back! Yes $5,000 on a $100,000.00 home.
Contact a Lender to ask about both programs. I have been a Realtor since 2006 and lived in Buckeye since 2004. I can help, please give me a call.

Edie Wood answered:
Taxes are very difficult to explain. Festival is a newer area developed in the last few years. It didn't even exist over 5 years ago. When homes were first built there, the tax rates and values were based upon land and property values without the real estate/house being built. Then they adjusted up when they were reassessed after the homes were built. Home and assesed values are differet but both have increased in the Festival area. If you have questions regarding specific properties, feel free to contact me as I live and work in the Buckeye area.

Hi again Tasha,

Buckeye VS Maricopa is a personal choice. Buckeye is closer to the West Side of the Phoenix area. Maricopa is closer to the SouthEast area of Phoenix. A lot will depend upon your location preferences and what you are personally looking for. Both are away from the City but commutable if you need to go to the airport, downtown, etc. I am familiar with both as my daughter lived in Maricopa but I live in the Buckeye area.

Verrado is hands down the best community in the entire west valley to live...the hoa fee of $164 is clearly worth all of the benefits. What is more, the community offers great outdoors activities such as hiking and biking access to the mountain trails, best (in my opinion) golf course in west valley, great community events like the upcoming Founders' Day Weekend (April) and a community feel found nowhere else in the valley. Schools are great, people know one another and a true sense of community exists. Bottom line is people want to live here. Another great feature is that the homes are not all the same...may good and great valley and nationally recognized home builders offer a variety of homes and styles. One downfall is the water company is private (Arizona American Water) and the water bills are higher here than in other locations. All considered, you get what you pay for in a community, hoa and choice of Realtors (as a buyer, you do not pay a Realtor, but still must work with knowledge and experience to get the most benefit). Feel free to search homes for sale in any community thru my site listed below and call on me should you want to chat!

What is it that you are looking for in a home? community? Realtor?

Sonny Shrivastava answered:
Don, if you refer to the AAR Arizona contract you will see that the escrow company has the authority to unilaterally decide, without approval of either party, the appropriate disposition of earnest money in the event of a dispute. Many escrow companies will not exercise this authority for liability reasons, but some will. If the buyer and seller signed an AAR contract and did not expressly waive that requirement, it is within the escrow company's authority to decide who gets the earnest money. ... more

Hi Bibie,

Absolutely not! If you document that your loans are deferred or "paid ahead" to the Underwriter, these debts should not be included in your Debt-To-Income calculation.


Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions, I'd be glad to help.

All the best,
Ros
