Hello Maryerico, why not run your credit? Do you have some credit issues and low fico scores? You should study RENT vs BUY as you may qualify to buy with less out of pocket of rentals.

The rentals in El Cajon start from $805 for a studio apt, from $1,100 for 1bd 1ba apt, from $1,265 for 2bd 1ba apt and up. I have never heard of any that may not run credit so you would have to call each one individually.

The purchase in El Cajon start from 175k for 1bd 1ba condo and up. You may qualify to buy with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

An ADU is no different than mother in law quarters and as long as it's properly permitted with no safety issues for FHA, it should not be an issue. I'm not sure why you have had problems but I can only assume they went to big box banks with overlays.

If you had a previous appraisal done with one of your buyers and you received a copy, you can forward ity to me and I'd be happy to take a look at it.

They were renting last I knew. Have a great Day Valerie ... more
