Rich Reed answered:
The seller could specify seller's contingencies in the listing agreement and on the MLS listing which would give notice to buyers represented by Realtors. In any case, the seller's contingencies would need to be included in the final purchase agreement before it is signed.
Hope this helps!

Hello Michael, we can not post an opinion of these types of answers as it could be "steering". You can do a lot of research yourself by driving around at night, weekends and see for yourself the zip codes you may consider.

How much do you pay in rent currently and how many bedrooms and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve? These answers will narrow down your search criteria.

These links may assist you with crime statistics:

Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:

http://Www.schoolfinder.ca.gov
http://Www.education.com
http://Www.schooldistrictfinder.com
http://Www.schooldigger.com
http://www.sarconline.org/

If you figure out what cities/zip codes he is considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent like myself can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

I have asked the landlord and I am not getting answers. My rent is due on the 5th of the month and he asked me if I can pay it in advance this time.

Hello Gsanchez6, you will first need to be pre-approved to be able to know your purchasing power and how much you qualify for from a licensed loan originator. Do you have recent credit reports or have any idea of your scores?

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to submit offers on homes of your choice. You will need to gather documentation such as one month paystubs, two month bank statements, last two year tax returns, 1040's, 1099's, W2's and all schedules, copies of drivers license/ID and social security card for each applicant.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down. You may consider a 3%-5% Sapphire Grant down payment program up to 417k from a minimum 620 fico score which does not have to be repaid. You can close with less than first, last and security deposits of a rental...

Yes, you can refi the FHA as a Non-Owner Occupied home, and purchase your new home with a convention (or VA if applicable) loan. As long as your debt-to-income is solid, you should have no problem! We have several clients that have recently done this to take advantage of the low rates, but keep their FHA loan on rental, while purchasing another.
Call us to discuss all of your options!

Thank you,

Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group answered:
So I'm curious... This question was asked back in 2008. So what did you decide Rahul? Did you try the loan modification or opt for the foreclosure? Where are you now? I have helped clients that have had a foreclosure on their record and they are now back on their feet, in homes and life is good for them. No more doom and gloom on the horizon.

Cindy Davis answered:
As Scott indicated below, it really depends on the cause and where you are in the escrow period. In California, buyers typically have 17 days to back out for any reason. Also, most deals that fall through are due to lending....

Are there agents involved? Ideally, they would be sorting this out with you and the buyer.

Keith Manson- Metro Milwaukee Wisconsin answered:
There are lots of things involved in the decision to walk away from your property and how it effects your future. This is not something to take lightly! The decision you make today, may affect you for up to 7-10 years. Your credit report will be hit 2-300 points which will effect purchases for other items that need credt and may even effect employment is some situaitons. Get a local expert walk through your options and make an educated decision rather some general opinion from someone that does not understand.

Good Luck!

Often there can be a requirement to be pre-approved by a specific lender that the Seller - usually corporate - knows and relies on. The can not compel a buyer to obtain their loan from any specific company.
