The market here in Killeen is hot! Homes are selling between 70-90 days and if you price it at market value, it may sell even faster. The beauty of selling in Killeen is we have continuous traffic from people moving into the area and they are always looking to purchase homes. I suggest you put your home on the market now.

I would love the opportunity to speak with and provide you with a Free Market Analysis of your home. My name is Keneshia Haye, Your TX Real Estate Lady 254-449-5299.

You need to learn that owner occupied housing means the home needs to be "a REASONABLE DISTANCE" from your job. This means no more than 1 - 2 hours driving distance - not 4 hours. The lender is correct. If this home is 4 hours away, you are buying as investors and you need at least a 10 - 20% down payment.

The best solution is to SACRIFICE or compromise! Instead of buying a house, buy a condo instead. You will live much closer to your job and it will be affordable. You're nuts to buy a primary home 4 hours away. You will regret it.

If you don't have a copy of your lease you can ask your landlord for a copy. If it's a 6 month lease then your lease would be up at the end of February.

Hi Julie,

Thank you for your service.

As long as you have enough entitlement left under the bonus or 2nd tier entitlement, you should be able to get a new VA mortgage without a down payment.

The other great thing about going with a VA mortgage is it allows me to count the rental income from your other property to offset that mortgage payment and that's going to lower your debt ratios. The ability to count the rental income comes down to whether or not a lender follows the VA guidelines or do they add their own requirements or overlays to them. In my case we follow the VA guidelines. The other

Prosper Realty answered:
FHA 203k loans are excellent opportunities to get a home cheap that needs some work done to it. I know personally some of our clients have gone through Home Loans For All for 203k loans as well as VA loans. They have direct access to a massive network of lenders and quite a few lenders that specialize in helping people with challenged credit. I'll include a link to their website.

Best of luck!

Perhaps, you can take a look at Inzopa. According to their data, VA loans in TX have been done for consumers who have credit scores from 533-809. I believe 580 is currently the minimum, but most lenders will help you with your credit score so that you can get into a home. You should be able to get pre-approved with a little bit of credit repair.
