Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

You would need to live in the home over 50% of the year and consider it your primary residence.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me. ... more

I would probably keep the carpet if I had the choice. However, laminate flooring would be a nice addition in some areas of your home. Laminate can be a good choice for bathrooms or laundry rooms. ... more

Gerald Vonberger answered:
It depends quite a bit on what type of coverage you include in your policy and what type you don't. It's definitely a good idea to check with a few insurance companies to compare prices too. If it's your first home, you might not need as much coverage, but your insurance agent will know better than me what you'll need. Just make sure you are getting enough coverage and not cutting corners on your policy. ... more

You're lucky to find a single family home under $350,000 here. Hillsboro is severely lacking in housing. ... more

Jason and Michelle Merritt answered:
If you need to finance your purchase, it is unlikely that your lender will loan against the condo while it is in litigation. However, if you are a cash buyer, it is an ideal time to buy because a home that cannot be financed looses significant value because the buyer pool is depleted by about 75%. You can usually get a "cash only" type purchase for 25 to 30% under market value of what the home would be worth if not in litigation. Great investment if you can buy with cash funds and hold for a couple years while the community value recovers. ... more

Alan Archer answered:
As long as you have not used your VA loan guaranty benefits, and you are going to occupy the house that you will be purchasing with them, they are available. Contact your nearest VARO for further details and to get your application going.

On the question about the rules regarding FHA loans, I do not know if you may rent the home out. You may want to re-finance it with a conventional lender and save the FHA mortgage insurance payment every month if you have enough equity. Depending on your interest rate and what sort of a deal you get, may have smaller payments every month - and thus higher cash flow!
