Hello,

Your best bet for detailed questions like this is to contact either the listing agent or ask a local Realtor in the area.

Good Luck

I'D KICK THE VA "INSURED" LOAN TO THE CURB IF YOU:

>Have used your VA benefit to purchase a home prior which make you a Multi User

>Have good credit

>Have 5% down

>Are Not a combat wound vet

Using a VA loan for the second time is very expensive, plus listing agents generally tend to tell their sellers to avoid VA borrowers if there are conventional offers on the table.

Good credit borrowers can purchase in the upper 800,000 range with only 5% down, No PMI and closing costs paid for them.

My last agent asked if me I was going to give him an escrow check when we made an offer on a home. I told him I wasn't going to provide him with a check prior to acceptance. I'm not sure why he asked for it but there was no way I was writing a check prior to acceptance of the offer. Being that your offer wasn't accepted you should get it back immediately. If an offer is accepted and the home doesn't close the closing agent would need the seller to sign for the release of escrow. Since it was never accepted you, your agent or the broker should be able to get it back now and I would demand it's return now and find a new agent. ... more

You can buy a home loan, but you will have to sit through a waiting period and rebuild your credit. The length of the waiting period can depend on the type of loan you desire and which type of bankruptcy you had. To obtain an FHA loan or a VA loan after a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must wait two years from the date your Chapter 7 is discharged. You can obtain an FHA loan during a Chapter 13 bankruptcy as long as you have made 12 months of satisfactory Chapter 13 plan payments, but you must have bankruptcy court approval to get the loan. In the case of either an FHA loan or a VA loan, you must provide an explanation of the bankruptcy. Although there is an exception for FHA loans. You can possibly obtain an FHA loan after one year if you had an economic event (such as unemployment) that resulted in a loss of income causing you to become bankrupt. Conventional loans have the longest waiting periods. If you want a conventional loan, you must wait four years after receiving a Chapter 7 discharge and two years after receiving a Chapter 13 discharge. If your Chapter 13 case was dismissed without a discharge, you must wait four years from the date of the dismissal. If you would really like a mortgage there are also hard money loan options that you can consider. Either way, the best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

Dear Kayet

I understand your frustration over this and feel for you.

Shortsales can be tough and fall through all the time.

I would recommend to hire a Buyers Realtor and find a new home! Sometimes it's not ment to be and maybe this one wasn't the perfect home for you and there is a better deal and/or better home for you out there.

There are lots of great homes in Lake Worth right now.

I would be happy to help you find your new dream home!

Nadine Mauro answered:
Hi Gilberto,

Are you planning to buy a house, townhouse or condo?

With any property that is governed by a homeowners or condo association you will have to fill out an application for the community. This will sometimes involve an in person interview with the property manager or someone from the board of directors of the association. As the other agents have said, it could be as little as 7 to 10 days, or as long as a couple months.

Do you need help finding something to buy, or do you already have something selected?

If I can be of further service please contact me directly.

Hello Bbponview, Hope you and family are having a wonderful winter & holiday season.
Greenacres is centrally located with an eclectic suburban mixture surrounded by West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, and Wellington, Florida. It is very accessible to shopping and commuting. It is close enough to I95 and the Florida Turnpike to choose either depending on where you are going. It is approximately 20 to PBI airport and WPB train station which is host to Amtrack and Tri-Rail. There are single family homes, condos, townhomes, and apartments. The development that you were inquiring about in Pine Ridge also ranges from no age restrictions to 55+. The community just did some improvements so they are proactive to keep up-to-date. There are also other developments nearby depending on your personal preferences. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to know more or have me send you more personalized listings after sending me your preferences to assist you in finding your perfect home. Thank you. Michaelina Oliva, Illustrated Properties ... more
