Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

It's going to depend on the taxes and insurance for the home but you could be in the $150,000-$175,000 range.

I would really need to put a pre approval together for you to determine a more exact amount.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me.

The most challenging part is financing. You have to have cash to buy the property, no loans. You're also buying sight unseen with no opportunity for inspections so you have no idea at all of the condition. ... more

If he is on the loan, he probably needs to sign. If the deed is prepared with both names, they will need him. They may also need him if it's only in your name to sign a quit claim deed. The closing agent is the person you need to ask this question. There are many variables. Call them first thing in the morning. ... more

OF course all legal question like this must be taken to an attorney.
I am not an attorney.
I do not play an attorney on TV.

Others have been overheard saying the following:
Start with a conversation with the current owner.
Explain your change in circumstances and your desire to save the owner the cost of an eviction. Assure the owner of your co-operation and care of the property. Seek what he/she will accept to let you out of this agreement.

Then take this agreement and a fist full of dollars to an attorney to confirm you are indeed released from the agreement. if you have nothing in writing have the attorney prepare a document reflecting the terms. Get the owner to sign then abide by this agreement. The last thing you need is to vacate and discover later you are still under obligation of the signed contract.

That of course is heresay and should not be considered legal advise.
Consult an attorney.

You are ready to buy a home! Once we offer you a preliminary approval, one of our mortgage experts will immediately schedule a meeting to discuss your approval in greater detail and answer any questions you may have. If you have not already identified a Realtor to work with, we can also connect you with some of the top Realtors in your area who will go out of their way to help you find your dream home.

If your financial information changes after your pre-approval, it is very important to inform us right away since that may affect the amount or type of mortgage you can receive.

Check out my website for more information.
Thank you.

Hello Ramiro,

I would need more information to see if I can help you. I am a Texas based mortgage broker who works with over 15 lenders. I have lenders who can potentially work with credit scores below 580 under certain circumstances but each person has their own specific situation.

If you would like to talk about it please feel free to give me a call.
