If your a home buyer seeking to purchase a property with a in-law apartment you are always within your rights to rent out said apartment. However, like any rental property it must be a legal apartment. You have the idea about buying for income purposes... as a first time home buyer you have the right mindset
going into this, Now its time to get an agent with that same mindset to assure your best interest are served. If you have yet to contract an agent give me a call at 914-356-6468 ( mobile ) or send me an email at scott.lewis710@icloud.com.

Yes! You have to meet the other standard qualifications for obtaining an FHA mortgage, but that score will not disqualify you. Make sure you speak with an experienced lender to discuss all your options and the pros and cons of each.

I am available to help you at your convenience if you wish.

I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.

Hi Shelly,

You should have options for conventional and FHA as long as you can put at least 5% down. What is best for you will depend on other details. You need an experienced lender, willing and able to take the time to lay out a variety of these options and discuss the pros and cons of each. Then you can make an educated decision on the best program for you.

The numbers should still work for you. They will not count any rental income from the house that you currently own to qualify. To be sure know payments on current debt you have listed. On the surface it looks Ok.

Worth having a conversation.

as long as your lender has a processer that does a WRITTEN Verification of Employment or VOE and the employer for your second job states your continued employment is good you will be fine. You won't be able to use any over time or bonus income from the 2nd job until you have 2 full years but base salary after 22 months is fine as long as your stability of continued employment at that job is good. ... more

Never buy a condo/townhome. Claustrophobic and harder to sell. Buy a single family house - lots of privacy and space -- and a "real" backyard.

Krista Harrington answered:
As others have said, you need to contact a mortgage officer and see what they can do for you and if they can help you improve your credit. Generally speaking, you need a credit score of a 620 around here to qualify for a mortgage. However, there are some programs that will work with buyers with a score that is lower. You need to check out your specific options.

As for the credit reports being wrong, you should contact the credit bureaus. If you have paperwork from creditors saying that you are all paid up, they should be able to correct your report for you. Make sure that you keep all of the necessary paperwork from any creditors so that you have proof that you are paid up, etc.

Good luck!

Hamden does not have a county clerks office. You need to go the the town hall. First visit the assessors office and get a copy of the field card. Then go to the clerks office and look up the volume and page from the date they purchased. It can get complicated, you can ask the clerk for help. ... more

There sure is... The problem is finding them!! Of course the ones who are able to do it, may not have a house you like... It is a tricky situation to pull off, to find a house you like and the seller is able to take back the note.. Even so the seller may be hesitant to take back the note if you don't have a reportable income stream... ... more

Hi Decapua,

It looks as though your account creation was successful since you were able to post this question. I was also able to create a test account with this zip code successfully.

Please let us know if you have any other concerns about the location entered for your account or if you have any general feedback for us.

Thank you,
