Hello stzhao05, you did not include a link or address to know which property you are interested in? 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. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study about me as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

This property is pending sale. They had multiple offers back when it was listed and it is still pending even though it may say active on the MLS. Yes, for the size of the home, the listing price was very attractive even though the home needed some updating inside. ... more
