As others have stated, contact a loan officer as all debt will influence your DTI which in turn influences what you can and can't be approved for. I would be more than happy to help you on your journey, 302-358-8539 ... more

Absolutely. ALL debt affects your DTI (debt to income) ratio. You should sit down with a local lender who can review all of your financial info and see what you should do.

Trulia doesn't have any way to help you with that and the info here is often outdated. If you're interested in buying a home, your best bet is to find a local buyer's agent. They'll be able to very in the MLS that a property is still actively for sale, they can get you in to view homes you're interested in and they'll facilitate your making an offer. ... more

What type of listing are you referring to? If your home is for sale with a Realtor, your agent will have to edit the property info. If you're trying to list a home "For Sale By Owner" (FSBO) you can't do that on Trulia. ... more

I don't see that possible unless you buy a foreclosure and possibly have the foreclosing lender also provide that financing where you can negotiate a term that works for you. Otherwise, unless you put much more down on the purchase, it may not be possible. It could certainly work in less expensive locations...but I understand you need to purchase in Dover..One thing to consider is to purchase an investment property in another state that will generate passive income for a year or two to give you more options in a couple of years while you rent...or, look at some expired listings for lower priced homes in Dover where you can reach out to the sellers directly and ask them about rent-to-own options or seller financing to offset your front end costs to purchase. If you have other questions email me directly for other tips on strategies for achieving your real estate goals.
Good luck. Tom Hinz www.shortsaletosell.com thinz@apexgroupus.com

Rent to own may sound like a good idea, but it is very risky! Make sure you have the guidance of a trusted and experienced realtor.

In recent years lenders have tightened the criteria for making loans. A local lender will be happy to go over the current requirements with you. You have many choices for home loans. New Penn Financial is a great local option in Dover.

I manage and own over 40 rental units in Delaware. Rental properties can provide a great source of revenue when managed well. Give some thought to your future financial goals and talk to an experienced property manager.

Quick Tip:
Requiring and verifying a positive credit history is the best way to select a reliable tenant.

This information can be found in the Good Faith Estimate provided to you, by your lender. Ask for a GFE if you have not received one.

It's advisable to call the agents office and speak to the Broker. The contract is likely voidable.
