You and many realtors are almost in the same pay structure, we don't get paid if we don't close on any properties. We work hard and often times put many hours into helping a client on a transaction that may or may not close. However, having said that, leasing will be really hard when you have an eviction on your record. You can try talking to a lender and see whether you'd qualify for a loan.

I have local lenders that I can connect you with if you are interested. Let me know if you are interested.

Conventional loans allow for 3-5% down, depending on circumstance and middle credit score. Please reach out to a loan officer and have them dig into the details of your situation.

My Loan Is Your Loan has a direct lender who works with Texas buyers down to a 550 fico score for FHA and VA loans. 580 and above are the big scores if you only want to put 3.5 percent down, anything below 580 you will need 10% down to purchase. They do offer VA loans for veterans down to a 550 credit score with no down payment needed. You can call 866-796-1431 or go to http://www.myloanyourloan.com to see all conditions to apply. ... more

I replied in your other questions. Unfortunately the law was changed last October and all lenders are required by law to use the 1%. Start protesting to your representative in Congress to reverse the law. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You need to know that the law was changed and ALL lenders are required by law to use the 1%. Sorry but lenders need to follow the law. I do agree with you that using the 1% increases the debt to income ratios and unfortunately since the law changed last October, this affects thousands of college students who will find it difficult to afford a home.

My Advice: I'm urging everyone affected by this to write to your representatives in Congress and reverse the law. Maybe if Congress gets enough protests, they can change it.

It depends on where you'd like to purchase the property. You can still find homes for $100k in in some areas in Fort Worth but it will be limited. Also do not expect the homes to be rented right away, as you'd need to fix it up. You will also be competing with many other cash investors so you may have to offer more. ... more

My Loan Is Your Loan work with borrowers down to a 550 credit score for VA, FHA, and USDA loans. They have a direct lender who was able to get my loan closed fast. I would check them out. I worked with Brian Young at 2147973479 I would call him super easy and nice he helped before we completed an application.

I would suggest that you call a different lender or two. John and Gregg below have offered you their service. You just need to extend closing, your realtor should know what needs to be done.

Good luck!
