We haven't had an inspection as of yet but we do know there was a hail storm in the area last year. If the roof needs repairs would the VA fix this even if the home is 'as is'?…

I ran a search on the MLS (multiple listing service) and there is no 5 bedrooms that come up in that zip code period. If you are by any chance in the military I would be happy to put you in contact with one of my fellow MRP (Military Relocation Professionals) in that area. If not I can have a RE/MAX agent in the area contact you and see if we can help you.

Feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email.

DearTrulia.

What has happened to you. Despite whatever you might think. My Desktop PC is certainly NOT a mobile phone. I can not find any way of getting the "God Old Trulia" back to normal display.

Perhaps you shold pay a visit to the doctor for some urgent help. The Trulia of today is useless. Pitty.

Best regards
Inge Holst Jacobsen.

Hi Theana,
If you haven't already been looking for a home to purchase , now would be the perfect time .
If you close around the middle of August , you will not have a mortgage until October , and you will have plenty of time to get moved, have your rental cleaned and get back your deposit.
Please contact me with questions you may have, have a Blessed Day, Thanks, Donna Sipley

Hello Iluminada,

Sorry to hear about your situation. It is hard to say for certain how long it will take. Your first step is to keep in constant communication with the lender. You may even want to try to go through a loan modification process. This process also buys you more time even if you do not think you will be approved.

Once you go through this step you may qualify for other programs that allow for the short sale of the home and allow the lender to give you funds at closing for relocation purposes. These funds range from about $2500 to as well over $25,000 depending on the property and the circumstances. I had a client receive $15,000 to short sale his home he could no longer afford. It was great for him so he could start over.

So you should contact an agent in your area to see what your options are. I would first call your lender and see what options you have as far as the loan modification. That can and most likey will buy you some more time in the home.

Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

It depends what is authored in the paperwork no professional can render an opinion. HOWEVER where are you moving to ? If you are to lease you want to move PRIOR to foreclosure posted on your credit report, you could be declined for lease , pay additional deposit(s) or etc.

Don Groff answered:
I agree with the general advice here. Unless you are on good terms with your ex-spouse it is better to wait. If you want to move forward and do not want to wait make sure your ex will willingly sign away her rights to the property and definitely consult a real estate attorney before proceeding.

Best of luck to you.

Don Groff answered:
It will be difficult. Your best bet is to get with a lender who can take the time to help you get your scores up. They also need to know about the programs available such as USDA or Bond programs that will help with your limited money down options. You most likely have some work to do before you can buy a house and you need a professional that will work with you and make sure you are headed in the right direction. ... more

Ronda Allen answered:
Disclose, disclose, disclose. You are making application for a home loan. Follow the loan officer's instructions and provide all required documents and history. Don't wait until the file gets into Underwriting and they begin asking for data further back and discover that you have left out a piece of information. You have tons of company in the same financial boat in the last ten years. There's no shame in it, and there are a myriad of reasons for why bankruptcy occurs. Don't be afraid to tell your story and don't be surprised if the lender will make you a loan. You are three years away from the discharge. How you conducted yourself during the proceedings and since may show the lender what a solid candidate you really are. That bump in the road doesn't have to be a brick wall.
Have a blessed day!
Ronda

Ronda Allen answered:
Only pay attention to agents in Texas on this question. EVERY state has it's own way of handling closing. Only in very rare cases, where I'm dealing with a loan officer who is local, have I ever had the loan officer attend the closing. Usually, it's the buyers, me, and the escrow agent representing the title company. The escrow agent is a Notary, and so there isn't anyone else required. However, we can reach out to others, as needed, if there are concerns about the documents. If the process has been properly handled, all you are really doing at the closing is signing your agreement to the paperwork being filed, handing over a certified check to cover your closing expenses, and having a copy of your drivers license made. If the lender 'table funds', you can expect to take possession as soon as the escrow agent sends back the signed documents to the lender and confirms their receipt. If not, it may take an hour or two for 'funding'. You don't own the home until you hear the words 'we've funded'. ... more
