Hi Matt,

Lenders can not discriminate against age of a person trying to obtain a loan.
I suggest calling a Mortgage Broker and asking them if you qualify.
Your credit score is great, however there are many other things that lenders
need to take into consideration. For example what your debt to income ratio is.

Good Luck

As stated earlier, you should contact a Mortgage Company for assistance.
Work with the loan originator and provide acurate information so you may be helped in a professional way.

Irina Karan answered:
Check your credit report (3 agencies) to see if you have student loans showing as of yet.
If not, you might be able to buy before they do.

Yes, the student loan monthly payment is counted as a monthly expense. It will reduce your buying
potential. The bigger the payment - the lesser the loan you'll qualify for.

Make an appointment with a mortgage pro and find out how much you can get a loan for,
then meet with the realtor to see what you can buy with that loan amount.

In preparation for your purchase, save up for your down payment, closing costs (sometimes those can be covered by your seller), move in expenses, insurance and reserves.

Hope this helps,

Isabel Bianchi answered:
Every case is different, in my opinion hire a professional to help you with this....and take the best decision for you... how much money you make can't help if you are still underwater, or probably will help to do a repayment plan with the lender, but if you are an investor and the property shows positive cash flow, they will ask you for all your assets to make a real picture of your financials.... ... more

Property values in Timberlake range from lower $200,000 to $300,000.

With some more information on your home I can determine exactly what the property is worth. I specialize in the Cooper City area and have lived there for 20 years and have been selling homes there for years.

If you would like to contact me I can put together a market analysis for you to show you what your homes is worth now or I can send you weekly updates to recently sold homes in the area so you can stay on top of what the market is doing in Timberlake if you want to hold off from selling for a little longer.

I probably shouldn't post this here, but I was up against the same wall with MLXchange and getting it to work on my iPad.

I use Mac OSX, Linux and Windows at home, so I had to spend hours and hours figuring out how to make MLXchange work for me.

Then I got with some VERY smart folks and we have put together a virtualized solution that is a cloud based desktop.

It works super sweet for the iPad and for Mac. It is at

If you know of someone who might benefit from this, have them check out our video.
