Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

You can put 3% down and you can even roll closing cost in using a sellers concession.

Your payment will depend on the purchase price of the home, the taxes and insurance cost.

I mostly handle NY and can lend nationwide.

If you would like help with this you are welcome to contact me for a mortgage pre approval.

though most banks need 640 score to qualify for a mortgage, there are some private lenders that can get you a mortgage with higher rate.

There is nothing like rent to now. Most properties are owned by banks and will not allow it given your poor credit score.

Basement rental is difficult especially illegal one, more with minors. I would suggest you look for regular rental because of the minors. you get a regular 2br apt for $1200.

There are loan programs for foreign nationals that you can qualify for. If you go to my website under the loan programs tab select the foreign national loans option and you will get an idea about qualification criteria. You can call me to discuss specifics.

Ask your attorney the question; much will depend on how quickly the surveyor gets to the property, generally they can be completed in a few days..

According to MLS the property is a short sale, currently in contract pending bank approval; therefore not available at this time. For available area properties check or consider working with an agent of your own who can provide any necessary information.... ... more

Good morning enydoughty,

I've been helping First Time Buyers for 23 years as a mortgage professional and I will tell you what I have always told my clients here in New York: If you are a First Time Buyer, steer clear of foreclosures and short sales.

Foreclosures are someone else's headache. The home probably has not been well-maintained and you're a First Time Buyer adjusting to paying a mortgage. Do you really want to walk in the door to someone else's deferred maintenance that YOU will have to pay for? Also, if you're thinking there are deals to be had in terms of lower prices, mostly those "deals" go to professional investors who can pay cash, negotiate hard with a Lender, and close fast.

For Short Sales, my attitude of late is that First Time Buyers should steer clear. Short Sales tend to be a better deal for the homeowner than for the Buyer. You'll wait MONTHS for the homeowner's Lender to approve the short sale; maybe as long as Six or Seven Months. Meanwhile, you're stuck in a contract to buy that home. I closed a short sale recently with a Buyer who, after seven months said this at the closing table, "I don't even want this house anymore."

And he didn't even get the "deal" on price he thought he was getting! The house appraised for only slightly more than he paid for it at the short sale price. He walked into this deal thinking he was buying a home for $100,000 less than it's value. In the end that wasn't the case.

There are plenty of motivated Sellers with their homes listed on your local MLS. Go find a good Local Mortgage Banker, get prequalified, then find a great, experienced Realtor, and buy the home you want at the price you're willing to pay. It's a Buyer's Market, after all!

yes the Q111 is not far. Also the Q85 runs to Rosedale also. Additionally, there is a LIRR Rosedale station. The express train to the city takes 30-35 minutes.
