Lenders will require flood insurance if in.certain floodplains. Can be very expensive and reduce your buying power. Some sellers in food plains offer to pay insurance for one year. This one apparently does not. ... more

This is a bank owned REO and much better choice vs. a short sale requiring bank approval and the seller has a questionable hardship. The listing was cancelled, I copied and pasted the MLS data sheet. I suspect that the house was pulled from the market. I am happy to check on your behalf for the reason to cancel.

Call me if i can be of service.

We offer different programs including FHA that allows higher expense ratios hence less income will be required. We also allow co-signers that could help you qualify if your current income is not enough to qualify for a loan.

Hi Christy,

This home is listed for $192,000. It is a short sale, which means the owner owes more than it is worth. The bank response time on a short sale offer to purchase is 6-8 weeks. It is being sold as is. This house needs some TLC, definite handyman special, solid home that needs patches, painting, and carpeting.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or if you would like to see this home. I am available days and evenings.
