good evening...rather than going land contract...let's get you re-scroed, and a timely gameplan to fix your credit...so you can buy with as little down as possible..and a great interest rate..
best regards

Beth- I would (in my opinion only) reccommend you check with a lender and see what they would like for you to do. Some loans can get done (conventional loans) with a lump sum down which can make it easier to obtain when credit challenged. Check with a local lender for the specifics. Land Contracts are what I am doing the most of right now and the best things about them is generally you can get a fair intrest rate, a fair term, fair down payment, and possession of the property generally within a few days on up to what ever is agreed upon. " In my opinion" I offer, nor intend to offer or insinuate no legal advice, no financial advice, nor any other advice that would constitute a profession that I am not licenced in. You may contact me directly with any question at 517-392-5894 or at mike@goodearthlink.com. Michael Beiswanger, Good Earth Real Estate, LLC 517-784-2024 ext 3216

FHA may be your best bet. These loans aren't as score driven as conventional loans. Find a local mortgage broker who offers FHA loans and talk to them about getting either pre-approved right away, or determining what you'll need to do to qualify. As a lender I've assisted clients in the past that needed to get a few things cleared up before they met the guidelines. By working with a lender first, rather than trying it on your own you'll have a good idea where to put your efforts if you can't get approved right away.
