I have the same issue. My realator was suppose to be my sellers agent. Then she decided to bring her buyers to buy my house and turned into the transaction broker for the deal. Little did I know that she would side with the buyers the whole transaction and treat me like the dirt on her shoes. She has called me ungrateful, said I absolutly will not do anything to help this sale and that I just don't seem to want to do anything for her buyers, and speaks to me with a condesending rude tone all the time. She emails me and expects and answer within an hour, if I don't answer her immediatly she leaves a nasty voicemail on my answering machine. I sold my home for $30,000 under market value, and will be paying $5,000 of the buyers closing costs. She still treats me like dirt. I am so happy to be done with her tomorrow and will never deal with her again. She's been nothing but horrible. All I can do is breath and be very happy I am almost done with her and her horrible ways. I will never allow a broker to just be my transaction broker again. Learned my lesson. I will also never do business with her or the company that represents her. Can't wait to be done with tomorrow. ... more

We currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Sometimes it helps to just Google the building name and/or address and see if any companies or old listings come up. You could also try asking the residents who their landlord is.

Hard to say. The information on this site isn't very reliable. You really need to be asking this of your Realtor! If you don't have one yet, you need to hire one. It doesn't cost you anything as the buyer. Your agent can pull up the listing in the MLS and verify what the HOA fees are, how often they are paid, what they include, etc. ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
Since none of us know the particular writing of your contract, I suggest contacting your agent who can provide an explanation. If you're going it alone and have no agent, you will have to read and understand the terms you agreed to (by yourself) and penalty of nonperformance. Another option of course is to consult an attorney who will read your contract and explain it to you. ... more

The issue is how are you paid?
If you are full time, salaried and receive a W2, you are fine because lenders can verify your income easily.
If you are part time, hourly and receive a W2, you will need a letter from your employer that your income will continue for the next 3 years and that your hours will not be reduced.
If you are an independent contractor, self employed and receive a 1099, lenders need 2 years of employment because your income cannot be verified and lenders will average out an annual income from the 2 years. You will also need 2 years tax returns.

In addition to employment /income, lenders will pull your credit and verify credit score and history, savings / investments and debt to income ratio. You will need cash for a down payment + cash to pay closing costs.

Age is not a factor to getting a mortgage loan. It's against the law.
