Hello Ms.erika82, yes as a broker we have 30 banks which some fit FHA guidelines. You may consider 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. If you have lower scores between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford?

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. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Check out the web reference link below...

I own property in Texas & want to sell it. There is no home (or any type of building) on the land. I've been notified I'll have to pay the HOA close to $5K in back payments. Can they do this? It's been sitting vacant for many years. HELP. I'm elderly & disabled.There was NO HOA when I bought the lot.
Can you help me?

Seller does not need to sign the notice of buyers termination. however a release of earnest money is to be signed by all parties. There is an exception with that depending on the title company. Some require the release of earnest during the option period and some do not. Give the title company a call to confirm their policy. They are a neutral third party and are required to give equal service to both buyer and seller. Id be glad to answer any further questions that you have. Good luck. ... more

I would suggest that you discuss with your attorney. I know they are your parents but it's best to have everything in writing by an attorney so there are no hard feelings later.

I'm not sure I'm understanding your question. I would suggest that you ask your realtor as she/he knows the detail of your transaction. Your realtor should guide you through the process of buying a home. ... more

Faith answered:
Hi,

The listings on our site are not posted directly by Trulia. Rather, we provide a platform for homeowners, property managers, and real estate agents to post listings for their properties. If you would like to get in contact with the property manager, please use the Contact Box in the upper left hand corner of the property page. Additionally, some property managers/homeowners may list their phone number directly on the property page as well. Unfortunately, we cannot provide additional contact information if it is not listed on the property page and do not have control over how quickly or if a property manager/homeowner responds to your inquiry.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Mary asked:
We heard the rates are hovering around 3.75% for Vets right now! Is this true? We will be in our first home for two years this August and wanted to know if it's worth it to refinance…

Probably not. I would suggest that you work to improve your score and then purchase a home. Let me know if you need me to connect you with lenders who can help improve your score and then approve you for a loan. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
Have you asked your agent about this? What did she/he say? The appraiser from your lender will measure the home. Also ask the seller why they list the home at 1300 square feet.

Is your aunt paying the entire monthly mortgage now? I think it's best to pick up the phone and talk to the lender.

You can get a home in Fort Worth or Haltom City in that price range. Where do you work?

I'm a local realtor and I'd be happy to assist you.

Hi,

Unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Thank you for using Trulia!
