Hi tdcchee,

That's a good question! You should work directly with an agent who can help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). Just find the listing on Trulia and then, to find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

HomePath mortgages are ONLY available on properties owned by Fannie Mae. You can search available Fannie Mae Owned properties here:

State of Florida has up to $7,500 in the first time homebuyer bond program. Go here and select a lender on the approved list and they can reserve the money for you if your income is not too high (I think about $68k for a single person is max):

Other lenders may not want to even tell you about this program because it does limit the profit the lender can make on your mortgage because the State of Florida will not allow a lender to overcharge you on the rate or fees. You must also have a 640 Fico and be able to qualify for an FHA, USDA, VA or conventional mortgage. You cannot buy a "fixer upper" property, it has to be in good functional condition (it can still be ugly, by the way... lol)

All the best,
Alma Kee

Hi Diane,

If you are looking for owner finananced country living you might also want to consider Sorrento and Zellwood. Apopka might even be right up your alley as well. There are many more properties and opportunities in those areas and a higher likelyhood of finding ownerfinancing. They are also close to Wekiva State Park which is a great place for canoeing, hiking and camping.

For more suggestions on country living hotspots just contact me and I will send you my favorite listings!
