Hello Rmb, yes you may. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing costs assistance? You could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.


If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The purchase in 90301 zip code of Los Angeles start from 279k for 2bd 2ba condo and 429k for 2bd 1ba single family home.

Rich Reed answered:
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.
Are you working with a Realtor? What does your Realtor say? If your agent doesn't know the answer, talk to their broker.
Did you use C.A.R. forms? If so, unless otherwise added, there are exactly ten reasons why a seller may cancel. Having a lien against your property is not listed as one of them. The C.A.R. purchase agreement also says the Seller is obligated to payoff monetary liens of record. Best of luck to you!

Well if you are going to move into the property then no problem. As pointed out below you can get a FHA loan, you have the 3.5% down or the higher priced .5% down. It is only available if you move in.

If on the other hand you want it as a invest property, we have get really creative and negotiate that with the seller.

Give me a call if you want help with that. 714-968-2500

There is really to much variance for me to give you an accurate answer. I would get in touch with your local contractor and get a quote from them. It wouldn't be a bad idea to talk to multiple contractors as well. This way you can make sure you get the best deal! That being said though, don't just pick the cheapest contractor, make sure you find one that will do a fantastic job! http://www.sierraremodeling.com/cabinets-bathroom-kitchen-remodeling-cochise-county-az/ ... more

Inglewood is HORRIBLE. Called actual number to police witnessing cars including mine broken into, asked me to go see what they looked, never showed up. Murder in front of my apartment was on lock down 4 five hours etc, etc. I grew up in LA Inglewood used to be decent. West Compton. Looks nice is not. Lived there from 2006-2012 when I was forced to move because my neighbor kept breaking into everyone's car! ... more

The Medford…, Real Estate Pro in Fremont, CA
Wed Jul 2, 2014
The Medford Team answered:
VA loans require the seller to pay for the Termite Report AND provide Section 1 & 2 clearances. Additionally, they require the seller to pay for most escrow-related fees. Banks will NOT pay these fees - they sell properties "AS-IS", will not pay for inspections and so on. Additionally, the home must have a Section 1 clearance prior to close of escrow - typically, banks will not provide any clearances and, even if the buyer was able and willing to handle the clearance themselves, banks will not allow them access or permission to do any work on a home prior to close of escrow.

Bottom line, in most cases, unfortunately, the answer is NOT REALISTIC.

Here is a post that may be helpful:

I began my real estate career in 1999. The majority of my transactions for the 1st 3 years were rent to owns, lease purchases, and wraparound mortgages. They do work. There are intricacies that you must be aware of to protect yourself. Since you're in California and we are in Arizona I would suggest you contact a local real estate agent you can trust who has knowledge in this area. ... more
