I just question why you need 20% down, maybe you do, I have my doubts.

If you are simply trying to avoid mortgage insurance, I may be able to give you a line of credit for the difference. If you would like to talk about it then call me at 714-968-2500. ... more

If you haven't notice. . Zillow and other companies do post homes on the internet even if the house is not currently listed for sale. What they do is go off public record and post it. This definitely throws a lot of people off, me personal I don't like it. I get to many calls from people asking for a home that is not even for sale.

Good luck,

After a little due dilligence, the comps in the area (top of the market) 260K. The cash price to purchase is 305K. The house needs 40K-45K in repair costs. Add closing and carrying costs of another 19K, and the supposed deal is no longer a deal. ... more

Steven Ornellas answered:
Hi Brujito, since I mentioned MGIC in my response below I also wanted to make you aware that since we are talking about insurance, and therefore risk, guidelines can change at any time.

Case in point:

Announced yesterday, and going into effect March 8th, MGIC will make pricing and criteria changes in response to losing market share to FHA loans and also to keep their #1 position among MI companies. The new pricing scale will use borrowers' credit scores to set premium rates with lower prices for borrowers with the best credit history and higher premiums for those with worse scores. MGIC hopes this will not only increase revenue but will also shift their business toward borrowers with FICO's above 720. For all markets and origination sources, MGIC will require a minimum of 3 credit tradelines evaluated for 12 months. Without this, the loan must meet MGIC's nontraditional credit guidelines.

Best, Steve

William Polack answered:
Mr. Hernandez is correct. Have your cousin give you 12 months cancelled checks to show your lender that he/she is making the monthly payments. If he/she doesn't pay with checks, get a printout of the payments made from the bank statement for 12 months. The debt will not be counted against you. If your cousin bought the house with an FHA loan, I'm assuming that you were a non-occupying borrower. If that's the case, you may still buy a house with an FHA loan. ... more

Ruth Velez answered:
Everyone's comments are true, that it first goes to the seller; then the listing agent presents offer to the bank. Keep in mind, though, some issues that may or may not motivate the bank to accept the one offer that is likely presented - that is, is it enough, in the eyes of the bank, to at least recoup a good portion of what is owed on the home? Remember, a "short sale" is the sale of a home which has more owed on it than it will likely end up selling for in this particular market.

Therefore, it does not make logical sense to make a 'rock bottom' offer on a home listed as a short sale, and to expect the bank will accept that offer with open arms. Remember - the bank is looking to accomplish a sale that will lose them the least amount of money in the long run.

Hope this helps.
