yes, you possibly can. you can negotiate a seller to pay your closing costs. Also, depending on where in Illinois that you buy you can possible get downpayment assistance from the State. Work with a realtor to guide you through the process.

As long as you don't have trouble with one or the other, you're fine. If you don't eye to eye on one, the other will hinder your progress towards closing. I have a lazy agent that referred me to her friend, a lender. The agent is inexperienced and lazy. And the lender is very vague and secretive in his answers. I had some words with one and then the other after getting attitude from them. Now they are hindering the closing. Making bad excuses and can't get their lies straight. I want to fire them both, but I'm so far along in the short sale dealing. ... more

Anyone can buy a property,you dont even have to be a citizen. If you have cash you dont need it because there is no tax like income tax.If you are here legally with a work visa or with a employee id number (EIN) then that would show you have income. Also you can try to work with a seller and use owner financing,but you have to ask for it because its not advertised and most people want you to get a new loan in your name to cash them out of a property.Phil Yorkville ... more

Is it a home to sell or home to close contingency? If so, then you can offer and probably not be wasting your time. Ask your own Realtor what your options are.

Linda Edwards answered:
I'm sorry to hear that you did not find out about the SSA on your home until one year AFTER the fact. I'm not sure if you were represented by a realtor, but if so, your buyer's agent should have been able to find out if there was an SSA. Unfortunately, you cannot always depend on the listing being completely accurate. I, myself, don't assume that the listing is correct. I always do my due diligence and check with the county (or whomever they refer me to) to determine if there is an SSA on a property. ... more

Hi Concerned,
this is strictly a legal matter, and since this is currently your home, consult with a local Real Estate Attorney, what your contract that you signed when you purchased the property says, have him or her explain it to you in detail and also what you legal situation is and how the attorney can help you....

Sorry that we do not have enough information and cannot really give legal advice either. But this is important enough of a matter to consult with an attorney, the sooner the better.
If you need attorney recommendations get back to us as all of us have worked with many of them over the years and can easily make recommendations to you.

Good Luck a happy 2012

Depends on your contract--review the document as the answer will more than like be in there--or consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate, have all documentation reviewed and see exactly what options you may have and then go from there--most professionals do offer a free consultation. ... more
