It depends what your contract says, if you signed it without reading or understanding, then it is on you. This should have been discussed when you signed and then again when you made that offer. The agent though shouold have read it to you and made you understand, Contact their managing broker to let them know this was not done and you cant afford to pay it. If they dont agree you may need a lawyer ... more

In general banks are eager, however, they definetely want highest and best for property. Typically the longer it stays on market , the more eager they are to get it off the books. Time of year does not necessarily play a role , but days on market more than likely does. if you are competing with other buyers on a specific bank owned property, then rememeber banks like offers with the least amount of contingencies and always like a fast close.

Credit and income both are very important factors in geting a loan, however, employment and other items are also considered. It seems you may qualify for a RIH ( Rhode island Housing loan) but your best bet is to speak with a knowledgeable loan officer and if you do not qualify yet, they should be able to give you tips on how to prepare for getting a loan down the road. i would be happy to refer you to a qualified Mortgage person.

Bob - Depending on what type of loan you get, then yes, the bank will do an inspection and an appraisal. Some loans are very strict (no loose handrails, failing roofs, holes in tubs etc). Your experienced agent should know what type of loan you are going for & guide you to homes that would meet their approval.

Dear Bob,

I would definitely sit down with a local mortgage professional to run numbers not quite so much based on "what will you give me" but "what can you afford comfortably".

I remember when I bought my first house the lender said "Well I can get your approved for way more..." than what was comfortable however we wanted to buy as much house as we knew we were comfortable with.

Good luck!

I am a realtor and was recently told that FHA is lowering their credit score requirements. That being said your score would more than qualify. There is more to it, debt to income ratio,...stated income.. It is wise to check with a local lender. I am happy to suggest some. I have a wonderful 2 bed, 1.5 bath house in Coventry for $165,00 and the sellers are motivated. Please feel free to contact me. Best wishes!

Evening Rose!
The listing agent should be able to answer that question for you rather simply! They will be aware if there is flood insurance on the property currently and additionally should know if it is in a flood zone. If you need further assistance I woudl be happy to help!
