Hi friends, I hoping I can get a home mortgage for around 40,000, the three credit reporting agencies show from 687 to 703, with very low ratios, however, there is a collection that will be paid off in Nov 2017 and there used to be a judgment that I could never pay that has disappeared from my reports, my total debt is $350 is there any chance for me ??

Thanks Loren

Diane Christner answered:
You asked this question in the FL forum, so am assuming the property you are selling is in FL. Contact a local FL real estate attorney asap to discuss what options you have and consequences should you try to cancel your contract. Be sure to share your listing agreement with your attorney as you may owe your listing agent a full commission if you cancel since he/she brought you a buyer who was ready, willing and able to purchase your property. ... more

Not sure what you mean by lot fees? They apply when you are renting a mobile home or bring your own and set it up. This is not real estate and we really can't help with that. if you are looking for something where you own the land, then yes, it's pretty easy to search the MLS for age restricted communities.

Click on my picture, read my reviews, and contact me if I sound like the kind of agent you'd like to work with.

I'm not in Lakeland, I am a Realtor in Ft Myers but I'm assuming that policies are the same.

I don't know of a commercial lender that would do a mortgage on a $15,000 property. It wouldn't make sense financially for them.

There are private lenders out there but the interest rate is upwards of 10%.

If I can answer any questions, please feel free to contact me. I'll help if I can.
