Good afternoon Morgan,

We see many credit reports with low credit scores (anything less than 620), and often many scores in the 500's. This is BAD credit. If you are one of the folks affected by this terrible economy, you have a low credit score and you have a dream of buying a home, here's some simple advice for you.

First steps:

Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.

Get a referral to a good, local, real estate attorney. Call the attorney, retain the attorney so you have her information handy when you make an offer. Having that information at time of offer helps you demonstrate to the Seller how serious you are, and they will consider your offer with more interest.

Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.

Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

Put together your Team of real estate professionals and shop 'til you drop!

Hello. I have a few properties that may fit your needs. Also, if you haven't done so you need to talk to a mortgage person ASAP. A good lender can walk you through things and get you set on home ownership even if your finances aren't ready. They will teach you what you need to do to better your scores and save money. It's best to get out of the rental pitfalls because with interest rates so low, normally home ownership will be less than paying rent. You can contact me anytime and I can give you a few names of those who care and will teach you what you need to know.

Well, your question is a little vague and I think I know what you want to know but let me explain a few things. Pre-fab typically gets mixed up with manufactured and modular. Mostly manufactured homes are the kind that come in on it's own frame with wheels. Normally just 2 halves but can be more. These basically resemble a house trailer. They don't have drywalled walls and rooms seem like little compartments.

Modular on the other hand also comes on a trailer but the "frame" of the home doesn't resemble a manufactured home. Also, these typically have drywalled walls and can be more than one story high.

The King Rd. home you questioned is considered a Manufactured home. Please, if you would like to view this home in person or any other home in the area that's on the market, please consider calling me.

Thanks,

I believe that a real estate liquidation company has ownership of that home since it went through the sherriffs sales back in 2011. If you would like to find another home simular to that or have more questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
