June Buerkle answered:
It all depends on your debt to income ratio and the stability of your source of income.

A spouse is never needed on a loan .. unless you use their income to qualify.

Just note, if you buy the house before the divorce is final, it may be considered part of the martial assets and your soon to be ex may be entitled to part of that asset. ... more

Talk to a local bank or mortgage lender that does VA loans. They are the only ones that can direct you forward, just how much debt you might have to pay off, etc.

Scott Godzyk answered:
Listing a home for sale is similar to how one used to buy an ad in a newspaper, now you buy online ads, Once teh home sells you dont go and round up every newspaper you advertised in. The internet amplifies the people one reaches and what is posted remains for ever. You can certainly try to get each site to remove the pictures but sites like this all have massive disclosures about data and pictures. ... more

I am from Western NY originally and I'd avoid moving there and renting let alone even consider investing in property there. With the preponderance of local waste dumps including Love Canal in Niagara Falls and the dishonest local governments, you are well advised to move someplace else. The people here are hostile to outsiders and even to their own citizens and do not let the idyllic facades fool you. Past history of hate groups, use of migrant black labor, etc seems to indicate that the KKK has gone underground but NOT left this area and seems to be in full control of local politics and government. I would offer this would be the worst mistake you could make coming to this area.

I've worked for NY State and the Federal Government here and had a number of violent things done to me, including what would be classified as a hate crime, and to my knowledge nobody was prosecuted AND my parents are involved. I think you will find you will be treated like a leper and that you can not rely on courts and police here to protect you. Did you plan to purchase guns to protect you and your property? I'd look elsewhere.

Properties there are distressed as is local government, Mayor of Niagara Falls was arrested and sent to prison recently. Buffalo is one of the top ten most violent cities in the USA.

Niagara Falls? Run, don't walk, away from it.... 14303? Even worse, look at the chemical industry there and you will see you can't live in that area.....All along Buffalo Avenue and by the river is a slew of toxic sludge generating chemical places. Cheep hydro power makes them go there.

I had family live in Love Canal also and this story is another local tragedy.

http://www.epa.gov/history/topics/lovecanal/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Canal

Also note that much of SUNY Buffalo and Amherst in WNY are swamp land.

Some things about the EPA Superfund sites and this is about Love Canal in Niagara Falls claiming it is all safe and clean now. I doubt that. You can check other dump sites around the US here also and see if you live in one.

The US Army Corps of Engineers soil study, I kept a copy and you can also use Amherst's copy as long as they have it on their site:

http://www.amherst.ny.us/govt/govt_dept.asp?dept_id=dept_04&div_id=div_04&menu_id=menu_22

This also speaks to the Amherst NY sinking homes but my browser won't load it properly.

Trouble more recently in Wilson that says you can't trust local law and politics:

http://voices.yahoo.com/sex-hazing-alleged-wilson-high-school-york-1792179.html

Also watch out for a distressed rental market in Buffalo/Niagara Falls areas where you get less and pay more. This local agency rents what can only be called slums that they have not improved or maintained for well over 2 decades. Most units have no AC dated wiring and all of that including windows that are worthless certainly in the winter time.

MJ Peterson and this local Realtor both sell homes and rent slums. I'd avoid doing business there at all AND NOT with them.

Anyone that predates on the elderly and disabled as they do, well you can figure that one out too.
