Purchasing land can be challenging. Typically you would need to pay cash or have a significant amount down. AND have excellent credit and income. Most of the land purchases I have been involved in in recent years, the down payment is 30-40% or more.

You can also look for owner financing situations. Just be careful.

Good luck,

You will spend more on trying to sort this out than you will simply paying the 5K.

Just chalk it up as a learning experience and get a better home inspector.

Cassandra M. Bickel answered:
Not sure why it would not let me post before, but there are also many better programs than GA Dream - especially if you have a down payment. The GA Dream program is basically a second mortgage that you have to pay back.

I work with a lender that has a true grant which allows up to 5% towards down payment and closing costs. Feel free to reach out if you would like more information on it.

Right now it is seller's/landlord's market. Most homes go on the market for rent and are gone almost immediately. I received 6 rental applications within 24 hours on one of mine.

If you find one, be prepared to have application as well as your money ready immediately. Most rentals require first month and deposit (Usually equal to a month's rent) plus any application/pet fees.

if you are interested in purchasing, I would be happy to assist you. We have some loan programs with good credit for low or no down payments available.

Good luck,

Cassandra Bickel, Realtor

For those coming across this post years later, I'd most definitely choose Kennesaw. Builders like D.R. Horton (whom I work with) have been building in the area for the last several years and it is flourishing. It is known for being a bit more on the rural side, but things have rapidly changed. The downtown is small but charming. There are decent schools in the area. IT's also close to Atlanta, which is convenient. ... more
