A no down payment mortgage allows first-time home buyers and repeat home buyers to purchase property with no monies required at closing. Other options, including the FHA loan, the HomeReady mortgage and the Conventional 97 loan offer low down payment options with a little as 3% down. Mortgage insurance premiums typically accompany low and no down payment mortgages, but not always. Feel free to reach out to us if you need assistance. ... more

I would suggest that you pick up the phone and call a lender or two to discuss your financing need.

That varies, depending upon the subdivision and the home itself. I would suggest that you work with a local realtor to assist you.

When you said you have bad/low credit, how bad is it?

I would suggest that you talk to a lender or two and let the lender gets the overall picture of your financial and go from there.

Good luck!

Overcome domestic violence can be very challenging. I am glad to hear you have been awarded benefits due to the Crime Victim's Compensation. I hope that you are able to continue to provide for yourself and can overcome that challenging experience. I think that having lawyer is a very important thing when it comes to receiving compensation from domestic violence. They can provide the needed guidance to receive the help you deserve.

There are many places that list foreclosed properties (which include bank owned), including this site, Trulia, and also Ziillow. I have a list of such places in my bookmarks from my own searching. RealEstate.com, RealtyTrac, GetForeclosedHome, RealtyStore, etc.

There are tons of these web sites that have foreclosure property information, but from what I've seen, they charge a pretty high monthly fee, but most have free trial periods. Just do a search for foreclosures.

Also, if you are having loan troubles, check out Hard Money Loans. http://pearlsofdreams.com/category/finance-real-estate-loans/

Good luck finding a Realtor, I have personally emailed many Realtors with a request to help find owner financed property, or ask if there was owner financing on a property, but they don't even write back.

I am copy and pasting my answer to a similar question from another person. I am a BUYER.

As a home shopper, if you don't get people to come look, it probably won't sell very fast. So why would I come look? Location-Location-Location! My number one priority. Second pricing. And third, financing. I can change things about a house, but I cant' move it.

I shop on the Internet, and I check Trulia and Zillow, I have email notices set for new listings with a couple of realtor sites, and I mostly check Craigslist. However, if a seller does not allow me to email them on Craigslist, they only put a phone number, I won't contact them by phone - ever - that tells me they are too weird, 'cause everyone does email.

Since my husband and I are looking for some land maybe an acre, I wouldn't be looking at your home, but I have been looking for over a year, and I see tons of properties that have stayed on the market for the past year or more. So it's no surprise to me that your home hasn't sold yet.

Here are a couple of ideas from my buyers point of view.

* I would put the listing on Craigslist. Many people are looking there.

*If I could, I would offer owner financing. Tons of people are self-employed now-a-days and don't have the "best" looking finances on paper to get a loan, but they may have excellent credit, better than most buyers. I would just ask for a credit check.

If you can not owner finance, then find a realtor who can help buyers find special loans like hard money loans, in other words alternate financing methods, this would open your house up to more buyers, buyers that other homes aren't competing for.

I feel that Realtors are a clique, I feel you will get better results if you stick with a realtor. I doubt that your home not selling is not their fault, unless they encourage you to list at too high a price. But to my knowledge they can't actually "make" your house sell, they can just put it out there to be seen, and do things to help get it shown and financed. To my mind a good realtor will have financing sources to help a buyer get a loan, even if they are not the buyer's agent, not just leave buyers to fend for themselves. If the buyer can't get financed, then they can't buy your house.

Just my personal thoughts and opinions. Not suggestions.

Ken Hackett answered:
Granbury has never had a high foreclosure rate (%) due to our demographics, that skew to an older population. Our market has always had a larger churn or turn over rate than most people think, and we have a lot of retirees that move for down sizing or due to health or loss of spouse reasons. The market has clearly turned a bit for the good, but it is still a buyers market in most price ranges, hence the large inventory of homes available. Call me anytime for additional info @ 817-776-7784. Are you looking for a foreclosure opportunity? ... more
