Asked by Erniepenajr, Houston, TX Sun Jul 21, 2013

Currently dealing with a bad credit situation. Income went from over $200,00 on 1099 to $40,000 on w2 over a short period of time. But been in a rent situation for 2 years not enough time to repair credit. We want to stay in this house asking price $265,000. I now have income to support it, but short down and bad credit. Father wants to help and can but we are running into some roadblocks. Any suggestions.

Only really 2 choices. Fix the credit, or come up with a down payment. Google "Hard Money Lender" and check out all the sites that come up. They don't much are about income or credit... they care about how much the home is worth, and how much you are going to borrow. The rates are high, but no matter how you slice it... it's better than paying rent.

I work with several Lenders that can have several options for financing. Contact me so we can connect and hook you up with a Lender.

Your father could purchase the house as an "investor," as long as he can qualify and put the 20% down payment minimum. At some time in the future, when you have rectified the credit and income situations and saved enough for a minimum down payment, he could sell it to you. Of course, he would have a taxable event, and both of you should seek the advice of a good tax accountant before making any decision.

A private lender may be your only other way to fund the purchase. The rates will be higher than from a bank.
