The seller can sure offer money to the buyer, but the buyer does not have to accept it. If the seller breaks the contract and the buyer chooses it could be an expensive court case

I can't wait to get back to Chicago. I was born and raise in Puerto Rico, move to New York when I was 18. Have lived on and off in Orange County, Broward County and Miami-Dade, love the nudist beach but I had also lived in Chicago and even though had bad experiences, the good ones outweigh the bad ones. I'm planning on moving the beginning of 2018. Wish me good luck and good health! ... more

Hello Greg, do you have 12 months of on time payments behind you and if so, no problem. You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and from 10% down with fico scores between 500-579.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You will need to gather documentation as this is a full documentation government loan. Check the website referenced...

Naca doesn't tell you that they stuck you with a security agreement that doesn't allow to to do anything such as getting a heloc and it shows up when you try to refinance then you have to go through hell to get it removed . They also stick you with a $50 a month fee for nothing. The process is time consuming and exhausting. I would have done better to wait another 6 months and get a home loan on my own. ... more

The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this I am unable to edit the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and if correct with your county will be updated on Trulia when the updated data gets sent to us. My best recommendation would be to contact your county to ensure that the public records are up to date.

If the county records are correct and Trulia has not received the updated data yet, owners have the ability to edit their home facts on Trulia which appear in the 'Owner Information' section. Please know that edit home facts feature is currently removed from the property pages while we improve the feature. While we do not have a specific date for when they will be available, I can assure you this is only temporary. We thank you for your patience.

Thank you for using Trulia!
