Sheree, Home Buyer in Gardnerville, NV

Please help me with home purchase information! Thank you

Asked by Sheree, Gardnerville, NV Tue Mar 26, 2013

Hello, I live in Seattle, WA and I am relocating to Nevada (due to my children being there). I would prefer to be in Gardnerville/Minden :)

1) I filed BK (chap 7) almost two years ago, but have since then established GOOD credit.
2) I will not have a job when I get into town (as of right now)
3) I plan on moving by the end of Summer
4) More than likely, I will be working for a temp agency until I find a permanent job (temp to hire)
5) I do have 2K to put down
6) My credit score is probably an average of 620-640

Can someone please help me in finding the right solution to purchasing a home?

Thank you all very much! I would prefer to stick to a local mortgage lender as I am anti big-banks (I'm a little bias as I work for a credit union) :) I will continue to work on my credit in the meantime. Although I have another question, if I find a job before I move and it is in the same field, would I still need to be working for that institution for a year?

I don't think so ... it could depend on the program you fit into. Being anti big banks is OK ... so am I usually ... they may provide your best option depending on the investors they are using. Jake at Wells just closed one for me that no one else could. Greater Nevada Credit Union is one of m top picks!

I agree with the others, your best advice is to talk now with a good lender so that you can make some preparations for the next few months. It will be important for you to get good advice.

There are several factors that will affect what you can do, your employment, what you can qualify for financially and the loan program you can qualify for ... different loan programs have different requirements for length of time after an bankruptcy. I'll include a list of several loan professionals that you can contact and they will be happy to walk you through the process.

Hi Sheree,
Generally speaking I believe you will need to be employed full time for several months to qualify for a loan once you establish yourself in Nevada.
Currently there are several loan programs for borrowers with a limited down payment, which is great for individuals like yourself!
All of your questions need to be addressed by a loan officer. The loan officer can give you an outline of what you need to do between now and when you are ready to purchase so that you will be fully prepared.
I will be happy to provide you with the names and contact information of a couple of reputable loan officers here in our area if you would like.
Please see my contact information below. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Best regards,
