It depends on how your contract is written. I would suggest that you ask your realtor, that's what you pay her/him for.

You can get home loan if you have 550+ credit score under FHA. Some lenders offer mortgages for lower credit score also. Your 2nd Q is not clear. Let your lender pull your credit and ask for all the options. Once they pull your credit your lender can explain you what options are available for you if not they can guide you until you are ready for home loan .
The other option will be portfolio lending. Where you can get loan but interest rate will be higher.

I did it. It's possible! In NYC as an owner you can either ask a good friend to "just post it for you" in whatever is your local interbroker database, or in this case no one wanted to help so I paid a few hundred bucks to the guys at to do it for me.

I would need to know why you are saying you can only buy CFD, and what kind of rental you are needing.

It is better if we do not discuss this on a public forum.

Valerie McDonald answered:
Dealing with foreclosures is much more difficult than buying a re-sale or new constructin home.
There certainly are some good values out there, but as Keith & Ute have indicated, the bank contracts & addenda definitely favor the banks & take precendence over anything you may have put in your offer.
Do take the time to read & re-read things & for your agent to read carefully. Check on the earnest moeny requirements carefully.
& be aware that banks operate on their own time schedule. Many do not respond in a timely fashion.

I hope you will find a house that will suit you well & will have a smooth transaction..

The information is available at the County Clerk/Recorders office on the second floor of the Logan County Courthouse, normally in a short period of time after the sale. A copy of the Deed will be available sometime later at the Assessor's office in the John Logan Building on McLean Street.
