You are better off asking an attorney about this. If you are interested in becoming a landlord of a rent to own, it's better to have an attorney involved in preparing your document. If you are the tenant you'll need an attorney to review and translate your document.

I hope this helps!

USDA loans are only approved in certain areas of the country and have specific limits on the amount you can earn to be qualified.

I would suggest you take a look at the following site for more information on the loan programs. Everyone will not qualify, but those that do can get 100% financing.

Don Groff answered:
Yes, that is what you want. If the home comes in less than the purchase price that is when you have a problem. When that happens you would need to either renegotiate the sales price or come to the table with more money.

Hope this helps.

Make a list of the large Mortgage companies in TX and call each one asking for a loan officer who has experience with 203K. Some will try to switch you to something they have. Keep calling unitl you find one. They should also mention they have the underwriters that are also experienced.
Your timing to buy is perfect and the 203K is one of the best loans going. There is an article that will help on Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers and be sure to read the article on the MCC Tax Credit. Best tax credit ever. You will also find links to TX assistance for first time home buyers.
Best of Luck, stephen

Get prequalified with a lender-make sure you ck withat least two diff ones if not three. Down here in the Valley sellers dont seem to understand how flooded our market is with foreclosures and that they can sit there and ask what the county's assessing their property at because thats not the true current resale value, and more and more foreclosures are coming out.
Check with, the state of Tx released funds for homeowners and Valley homes qualify, they will help you with your down payment but funds are going fast, find a lender who works with the program and see if you qualify! These loans must be FHA though. You will also be able to ask the seller to cover a good chunk of your closing costs which would be RARE to find an owner who would finance you (at high int rates as it is) who will do that for you.
If you have saved up and can put a higher down payment down, have the lender pre qual you on both FHA and Conv terms so you can see what might benefit you best and you can be ready to hit on homes which may be good deals and move off the mrkt quickly-conv will give you that ability to make a little lower offer on something that might need a little work but you can easily work on for less than it would cost the seller to higher a professionally licensed contractor to repair for an FHA closing. FYI, get pre qualled through someone online not just locally, everyone takes forever down here:(and make sure they give you your GFE sheets!
