Scott Godzyk answered:
NO, with FHA you need 3.5% of your own money and need to have it in your bank account before making any offers. It does not seem you are pre-approved or they would have confirmed you have the money needed to buy. You may need a new local and trusted lender. Your buyer agent should be assisting you with this ... more

Sorry to hear of your present circumstances...

The time to ask the thoughts, ideas, and opinions of agents here on Trulia (for you) have come and gone. What you need now is legal advice - something none of us can give you.

Call a local attorney to review and explain your contract. Ask your questions of them.

Good luck to you!

Your best course of action is to consult a tax professional and mortgage lender.
For purpose of taxation all income should be considered regardless how paid, from there expenses are deducted. If you don't report ALL of your income it will be very difficult to prove to a lender that you earn enough money to make your house payments.
Hope this makes sense!

Just keeping it real !

Dan Tabit answered:
You "might" be able to get an FHA loan with 10% down. A better choice would be to take some time to fix your credit. Lenders use the middle score to make decisions. Just because you have a score that doesn't disqualify you, doesn't mean you are automatically approved either.
By paying off debt, keeping things paid on time, disputing any errors you might be able to improve your scores and open up more options. Somewhere in the 620-640 range you may be able to get a mortgage with only 3.5% down.
Meet with a local lender. Some will assist with credit repair and get you on the right track quicker than you might be able to do on your own.

That depends upon the condition of the foreclosed house you are looking to purchase. If the house is in reasonably god shape it should not be a problem. If the house needs a little repair and/or updating there are loans for those types of homes also. ... more
