Hi Texboy409,

I can do VA & FHA loans down to a 580 score BUT you have to remember, your credit score is just the door opener when it comes to getting approved for a mortgage.

I specialize in VA & would be happy to help you.

Yes it's legal for builders and their agents to refuse your lender. You need to learn that builders know buyers like you love new construction and if you refuse to play along with all their crap, it's very easy for builders to say "sorry, but if you don't go along with what I need, you need to leave and another buyer will be here in 5 minutes who will use our lender. Have a nice day. Goodbye." Remember, you're 1 person out of at least 50 other people. Out of those 50 people, all the builder needs is 2 - 3 people who will use their lender. The odds are in the builder's court.

One thing you failed to mention is the builder's contract. Builders do NOT use standard state approved contracts that realtors use. Builders have their own contracts written by attorneys to protect them - not you. If you took their contract to your attorney to rewrite the terms to favor you, I can guarantee the builder would rip the contract or put it in the shredder and force you to sign their contract with NO changes. If you refused, the builder would say "sorry, but if you don't go along with what I need, you need to leave and another buyer will be here in 5 minutes who will sign the contract as is. Have a nice day. Goodbye."

Hi Kristen72,

It depends on the circumstances of the divorce & the type of mortgage that you're eligible for.

For example: FHA requires a 3 year after a foreclosure in order to be eligible. FHA does have an exception to the 3 year wait in cases of divorce but only if
A) The home was awarded to your ex &
B) The mortgage was not in foreclosure prior to the divorce.

Who was awarded the home in the divorce?

VA only requires a 2 year wait after the foreclosure to be eligible & USDA requires a 3 year wait.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

It's an opening bid for an "auction" of a home that's in foreclosure. Don't expect the property to sell for that price.
