How do they work? Are they the same? Can some one be eligible for both? Do you still need to have cash set aside? What credit score do you need?

My Loan Is Your Loan work with borrowers down to a 550 credit score for VA, FHA, and USDA loans. They have a direct lender who was able to get my loan closed fast. I would check them out. I worked with Brian Young at 2147973479 I would call him super easy and nice he helped before we completed an application.

If the HOA governing documents require a minimum income then yes. It is to make sure that you can afford the assessments on a continuing basis. The HOA couldnt care less about the if you have a mortgage or how you pay for the unit, as long as they get paid.

You need to retain a lawyer as that is a legal question; especially if you are buying a house you should already have a lawyer representing you and reviewing all of the docs and doing your closing.

The standard waiting period is 3 years for short sales and foreclosures, 2 years for bankruptcies.

However, there is a program by HUD called the back-to-work program which allows a buyer to qualify 12 months after short sales, foreclosures or bankruptcies. There must me extenuating circumstances that lead to the event, and you must be able to show that you have recovered to qualify.

This information came from The Lenders Network, they will be able to assist you in finding lenders that offer the HUD program and can help steer you in the right direction.

Good luck to you!

Why do you want to buy at an auction type event? Those (depending on the situation) might not offer the best deals as some may have no clean title or other issues might present itself. The first type of auction as described by another realtor in this blog can be a bag of surprises. Do your homework. ... more

You can check the MLS. Your realty should be able to send you a list of all the homes listed as FHA approved on the MLS.

You can, but you have to sell your house first in order to have the cash. Or you can try for a new first mortgage on your existing home...but that is the very situation you're trying to avoid on the home you will purchase.

Find an agent in Miami and discuss the details. They can provide the best info working with you directly.

Good luck!

No clue, you will need to hire an attorney literally tomorrow to review your contract and give you a legal opinion on your rights to the deposit and if seller even has the right to ask for more or not.

For the most part all homes must be move in ready to qualify for VA or FHA. With VA the home will have to have a clear termite with no signs of damage. Usually the seller will have to repair any termite damage before closing to qualify for a VA mortgage.
