Hi, My credit score was around 545. I had a judgement from 2012 and charge offs so my credit dropped over the years. I could not get a better job and was rejected for mortgage loan 4 times. However, I spoke with a mortgage specialist about purchasing and her advice was to get my credit score up to 750 at least, because according to her everything i needed to qualify for a USDA loan was to get my credit score up. Now we have a home in Gaston County NC and I am with stable income!!! The decline in credit was due to pregnancy related complications leading to job loss in February 2011. I fixed my credit score with the help of (PYRAMIDEYE.HACK@OUTLOOK.COM) in 2 days. You all can reach him via his mail and free yourself from rent bills,unnecessary debts and bankruptcy ... more

Usvet64 and jijerton2 I totally agree with all you have said. I will be sending these responses to all the banks i know, whom take care of military families. Sometimes a realtor is not needed because the buyers found you. Missing out on one home is not going to break the bank for a good realtor. Most title companies use realtors and brokers to help with the documents needed to close a home and they know this information too. I wish you happy selling. ... more

Section 8 has done more harm then good. Their moving into the suburbs and bringing their problems/ways with them. Crime has increased. Their are 10-20 people living in one house. The streets which are for cars are their childrens play ground. They park many cars in the driveways, on the grass, and the cars clutter the streets. There is paper and bottles thrown every where. America is starting to look like a third world country. When President Obama made changes to section 8, he did not make changes that would allow them to move into his neighborhood. It takes hard work and endurance to obtain a certain life style. Should I be punished because I work, and take care of my home? Just so you know I'm black. I have had a lot of hungry and sleepless nights. I'm a child of a mother who was on welfare. This is a system that stinks, and where middle class people are punished. If you want a better life, make the right decisions, do the right things. Stop getting all these handouts! I'm talking to Mexican's, Black's, White's, and others, because they all take advantage of the system. The flood gates have been open for crime in my neighborhood. Shame on President Obama!.By the way I live in Humble. ... more

My impression is that rather than spend the time and effort building a soundly constructed house (as one would expect their mission to be), that they instead invest their greatest money in combating negative comments about them on the web. When we were looking to buy a house, we found all kinds of negative comments and such. Even heard about five deaths on the west coast somewhere, when a shoddy constructed balcony fell off a house they built. Only thing is that they all seemed to disappear after we found them (could not find again). This stuff disappears, and then it comes back somewhere else. They must sue people, or pay money to keep things quiet. In our case, we bought KB home, and regularly visited the property while it was being built. Spotted all kinds of things, reported them to our county, and the county investigated. Then the building manager told us, you are now on the county's radar, so all that free stuff we were going to do...we won't. Ok, but we wanted a safe house so... glad we are on someone's radar! We sent them a list of unfinished things in the house since the day we moved in. They fixed a few token things. After a year and a half of not finishing the work, they finally started telling us, you aren't under warranty anymore! Excuse me!? You don't even fix the stuff you're supposed to delay a year and a half, then tell us not under warranty? This is absurd! They were mad at us when we moved in because we got our own financing (it was a big difference in cost), and somehow they made us pay some bizarre $7,000 tax fee for the state. The state paid us back, so it was no real harm done, but it was such a petty thing for making us have to pay more because we didn't go with their finance... so petty. They even let their finance ping our credit once a month for the first year, and with all those excess pings to the credit, we could not refinance because of so many inquiries. Something really wrong about that one. Just beware. More interested in getting your money than in delivering a quality product. Funny thing is all the broken stuff is really simple and cheap stuff...would take any reasonable person 5-10 minutes for each thing, so nothing major or earth shattering. We were even replacing our sump pump once a month because they didn't finish hooking up the resivour and outside dirt kept running inside...thank god they fixed that one...I hope! ... more
