Hi Tiffany,

I just helped a military person from the Homestead base purchase a home. Please let me know if you are still interested in purchasing a home. I can help you through the whole process and guide you in helping you get all the credits a military qualifies for. Call or email me for information regarding builders credits toward your closing costs.

Please let me know if you are still looking for a home in Homestead. I have the perfect one that has a large back fenced yard for your dog. A VA loan would be your choice correct?
This house is a large 3/2 with an in ground pool. The master is separate from the other bedrooms. All fresh paint inside. Two car garage. A living area and a family room area. Walk-in closets in each bedroom. The carpet has been removed from all rooms except the entrance and kitchen, therefore you could make it your own choice! There are no appliances. The pool equipment will need replacing, as well. A newer roof!! Great neighborhood!!

Are you already linked up with a lender? A good first step is getting pre-approved for a loan amount so you will know how much money you can borrow before you start looking at properties. If you do end up looking at short sale and foreclosure properties as Simon mentioned below, I specialize in a renovation loan called the FHA 203K that allows a buyer to borrow money on top of the price of the home to make needed or cosmetic repairs with only 3.5% down. It is a great program to help you get all you want in a house...even put up a fence in the back yard if you find the perfect home and it doesn't have the fence for your dog. It certainly helps broaden your search. Being in the military, you are probably looking into a VA loan (I can do those as well), however, if you are interested in the FHA 203K and making changes to a property, my suggestion would be to refinance after 1 year to a VA loan...

I would be more than happy to help you with any type of financing. If you are interested in learning more about the 203K, my website has a wealth of information on it http://www.titanhl.com

Please feel free to reach out to me if I can assist you!

Thank you!

Your post says that you are looking for property in Homestead. You should check out this site: http://www.bankforeclosuressale.com/. It is a leading website database that contains over two million foreclosure homes, including bank foreclosures, government foreclosures like VA homes and HUD homes, distressed properties and commercial properties that are for sale all across the nation.

All of the listings have had any outstanding liens eliminated and the title is free and clear. We also update our extensive collection of listings every day. Membership opens up the listing and reveals the contact information and a detailed property description including more photos.

I did a quick check for 3 BR/2 BA homes in your area and I found 694 active listings starting at $32,000. Here is the link to check it out: http://www.bankforeclosuressale.com/list/fl/county086/homest…

Since you are in the military, I would highly recommend getting a VA loan. The terms are excellent and they do not require any money down nor do they carry mortgage insurance.

Hi Tiffany,
For me to better assist you I will need to know if you spoke with a loan officer to see what you qualify for. If you have not I can refer you to a couple of loan officers that do VA loans.

I specialize in the Homestead to Kendall area and as new home consultant.

Please feel free to call me with any questions you have.
