From my personal experience I couldn't get one with poor credit, I googled ways to fiz my credit score and this company called Select Us came up on google search I looked at there reviews before I gave the a call and figured why not. My husband has good credit so only I was holding us back. I ended up going with Select Us and they helped me with settling judgments on my credit my student loans and a few late payments. I don't know what I would have done because if they didn't help me I would still be renting. ... more

I seen how KB Homes are built and it's as conventional as any other builder. They make the foundation and afterwards have guys come out to make measurements. The pre-nailed lumber parts arrive at this stage, and judging how these parts look, I'd say they look as typical as any other carpenter would build.
It's pretty standard stuff from insulation, drywall, roof and ceiling with every step being thoroughly inspected. I don't think there will be any major issues with a KB Home other than minor human error that can be found in any builder home. I plan to be very strict with my contract and warrantee once my home is built.

Realtors can create customized searches for our clients and one of the most popular search points we are asked to look for are pools!
So, they are out there. Don't expect to find too many with brand new construction, but a pool search is fairly easy. Keep in mind the extra cost when owning a home with a pool. Those include higher utilities, cost for cleaning/chemicals as well as higher insurance cost.
And when we find that home with a pool, we will want to have the pool inspected to confirm its in great shape and no hidden issues. Let me know if you would like a personalized search created for you.

Mrs Tucker,

There really is no such thing as a "rent to own" when it comes to real estate. You hear that term with furniture, appliances...maybe a big screen TV. But real estate is a LOT more money and a more complicated transaction. So much so our real estate brokers advise us NOT to get involved with them.
If you need to rent, you rent. If you want to buy the home your renting, you speak to the landlord. If you want the landlord to pay some of your closing cost to buy rental home, you include that in your negotiations.
Your credit scores are too low to get a mortgage anyway. At this point, you rent (as cheap as possible) and save money. During that year you work on fixing your credit to improve the scores. Once you have done that, your not limited to a few homes that are advertising a "rent to own".
And one last comment. This is a huge way for scammers to steal your money. Please use a Realtor when buying or renting any home as they know what to look for to keep you and your money safe.

Tiffany,

Complicated..yet easy. You need to speak with a lender now. A lender that works with veterans like you! Your general scores sound good. Some "stuff" that might have to be addressed. Good news is that your planning ahead and many credit issues can be squared away long before you need to get that mortgage. No need to hire a "credit repair company" as you can do all of it for free.
I'm providing a link below to my website. I have some great lenders that not only do VA loans, but can provide free advise on how to get your financing house in order. After that, we find you a home. We look forward to assisting you.

If the survey has been ordered and completed, yes. Good news, you can provide this new survey to the next buyer and use this to your advantage in negotiations (saving the Buyer some money, maybe they can pay a little more for your home!).
Whoever is ordering the survey. Order AFTER all (or most) of the contingencies have been removed. After the inspections, after the appraisal, after the review of the title commitment letter. Make sure the title company your using asks you for permission before they order. Most do. Good luck with your future sale.
