Check out The Lenders Network, they have lenders that can go down to a 580 credit score. Good luck!

just to add my 2 cents....I agree with larry....stay away from rent to own - you stand to lose a lot of money

you need to rent while working on getting your credit repaired so you can qualify for a mortgage down the road.

rent to own is not for you, especially if you're currently involved in filing for bankruptcy

Yes - People are buying homes in this area. CC Hills has a huge variety of inventory of different kinds of homes at all price ranges. Plus, people like how close it is to transportation.

If you are considering investment, I would be happy to walk through the process with you to see if it is something that fits your needs. I have also written several blogs in the trulia blog section on this.

I help investors find homes and successfully invest in real estate. I would be happy to talk to you. Please feel free to call him.

Hi Walter:

I see you posted this a while ago, and if you're still on the hunt, give me a call.

Your situation doesn't look the easiest to work with, but perhaps since then you've done some work to your credit? I am also an officer of a program that specializes in preparing purchasers like yourself to be ready to own a home.

If I may be of service, please give me a call.

The home you referenced is not currently on the market. If your question is about this high school it is best to go on the web and do your own research. Realtors are not allowed by law to give opinions on school districts, etc.

If you are looking for homes in this area, I would be happy to help you. Please feel free to contact me.

Here are some sites where you can do research on schools and make your own mind up. Also, you can check my Trulia blog on my profile and see my blog about advise to determine which schools you like.

You can check the real taxes on any property in cook county through the cook county treasurer office with the pin number. You can get the pin number on the cook county assessor office.

Law prevents Realtors from giving opinions on the safety of an area. My advice is to call the police in Country Club Hills and get the crime stats directly from them. Also, drive around at different times of the day and different days of the week. That is the only way to get the true picture of a place and establish your opinion of safety and your level of comfort. ... more

To buy - usually you need to wait 2 years after the discharge date. And your credit score needs to be around 640.

To rent - can be any time. Every landlord has a different opinon of bankruptcies, but there are other ways to get their attention and get a rental. ... more

Peter Kedzior answered:
If you are an owner-occupant (not an investor), HUD will give you 2 weeks for your due diligence including any inspections you'd like to have at the property. Also, if you use financing (instead of paying cash), you would be allowed to cancel the contract and receive your earnest money deposit back if you are denied the loan. In most of other cases, your earnest money deposit would be retained as liquidated damages. ... more
