When you are working with an agent you should tell them that you have Section 8 at the beginning. If the agent does not know about the program they should be willing to look into it and explain the program to the landlord, listing agent, or property manager and if they like what they hear about the program they shall be willing to accept the program/voucher. ... more

There is no restrictions whatsover on buying duplexes or single family homes in the USA. Here in Sacramento, California you can get a single family home for below $100k and get a rent of $1200-1400 per month. The yield can easily be > 15%. You can also get financing as long as you pay 40% down payment. Please visit for more info for foreigners buying homes in USA. Please contact me at for further info. ... more

Hello Tina and thanks for your post.

I am very sorry to hear of your foreclosure. Unfortunately, with a foreclosure on your record, it is unlikely that you'll be able to qualify for a loan for at least three years from the date of the foreclosure. At this time, lenders are not providing loans to anyone with a FICO score of less than 620 nor a downpayment of at least 3.5% of the purchase price. The only other method to purchasing the home would be to obtain loans from friends, family or portfolio money from "hard money" lenders--who will charge you an outrageously high interest rate on the loan.

At this time, much as I'd like to tell you otherwise, it does not seem possible to purchase back the home that was foreclosed without financial backing from family and friends. If you do wish to purchase a home in the future, it would be worthwhile to work with a credit specialist or a financial planner to repair your credit and to create a budget that will allow you to pay for a home mortgage, downpayment and the other necessities of life.

Good luck!
