Typically banks want the home to be empty. They have already had to deal with removing people from the home and they don't want to have to deal with that again.

In addition to the 0% down USDA and VA programs, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) has a program that is a down payment assistance program for first time homebuyers, or buyers who have not owned a home for at least 3 years. It can be paired with the loan programs mentioned in Tom's answer except for USDA. They will lend an additional 5% on your mortgage with no interest and it is repaid with 0% interest when you sell the home.

My company offers this, however not all lenders participate in this program.

Hi Jennifer,
Yes 4 months is a long time unless you have credit issues and they are waiting for your credit score to go up. Is that the case?

Also, if they say it's the title company's fault, is it a question that the title is not clear and they are working on clearing it. Are you sure that the mortgage company can do a loan on a manufactured home? the guidelines for those are even stricter.

Is this for sure a foreclosure or a short sale? Foreclosures don't take much time but short sales can take up several months.

You need to get more details from your loan officer.
