So is your name on another mortgage? If so, it is still possible but it may be harder. Since you name is already on a mortgage, your next home with be considered your second home. This means that lenders may be less willing to lend to you because they may view lending to you as more of a risk since you already have another mortgage under your name. But if you finances are strong enough to support two mortgages, then you should be able to obtain a loan. Another thing that comes along with second home mortgages is that lenders require higher down payments and rate to balance out the risk. Either way, the best thing for you to do is to speak with a lender directly so we can efficiently assess your situation. I would be glad to speak with you to help you get the loan that you need. So if you have any further questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

I usually don't do this, but...

Absolutely horrid advice from Diane. Understand: I very much like lease-options and one might even be appropriate in your case. But (leaving aside the all-caps and myriad misspellings), her description of lease-options is simply bad. "They don't look at credit." Of course they do. You can go into a lease-option with weak credit, but the seller (and agent, if there is one) will absolutely look at your credit and the prospects of improving it by the time you exercise your option.

"Have to put a little more down to rent it goes toward your down payment savings...." Huh? The amount you lease the property for is negotiable. Any credits (and there usually are some) are negotiable. The credit might go toward the down payment OR to the purchase price.

Whether you void the option due to a missed payment depends on the negotiated terms of your option.

Making changes to the house? Check your lease agreement. And your option agreement. Sometimes that's permitted. Sometimes that's not.

So, let's get back to reality.

You asked about renting. You'll probably have a better chance renting a property directly from the owner. Second best: The same property through a real estate agent. In both cases, especially with the individual owner, you'll at least have a chance to plead your case. If you try renting an apartment, it's very likely the apartment complex management has hard-and-fast criteria about credit scores, income, etc. In other words, your chances of finding a flexible decision-maker is greater dealing with the actual owner.

Second: Sometimes offering to pay multiple months of rent up-front helps. (Sometimes not.) But then, at least, the landlord may feel a greater sense of security.

Third: Work to clean up your credit.

Hope that helps.

You should be able to call GHTS City Hall and ask for the Building Dept, then ask for a copy of the POS inspection of the home that you are interested in

Rhonda answered:
I can't answer your question, but do have a good investment opportunity......I need an investor to buy my house and sell, lease or rent it back to me before it goes to sheriff's sale! It's been in the family for over 40 years, my in-laws passed away here and my little children (3, 6, and 8) were born and brought here! I need someone to help me! We are desperate and need some advise. I've been working with a lawyer for over a year. The mortgage company was not working with us at weeks away from a sheriffs sale, they said if I come up with 93,000 dollars they will let us buy the house! I don't have it and would never be able to get the financing for it! I could put several thousand dollars down, (5-7)......someone please help!!!! thanks

Ed Beck answered:
Once the bank takes possession, they will likely offer you cash for keys within a couple of weeks. They will offer you money to move within a certain time frame. Once you've moved and left the property in broom swept condition, no garbage, no furniture left behind and the stove is still in place they will hand you a check. You do have the right to stay and pay rent to the bank, but you will have to agree to real estate showings once they put it on the market. If you stay and don't pay rent, you will be evicted through the courts. 6 months or so, depending on your court system. ... more

Hi Estan12,

Trulia may not be the best source to check for the value of your home. As far as values, lenders will use a conservative value of the worth of your property based on the homes that have sold in your area. This may not be what you could sell your property for. Also, the there are mortgages available to help you even if you own more than the worth of your home. Some programs do not even require an appraisal. Talk to your lender to find out what your options are. If you do not have one, I will be happy to assist.

Good luck with your refinance!
