Have you been able to find a Buyer Agent yet? I work in Fairfield and New Haven County and if you would like some more information I would be happy to help. The benefits of working with an agent is that we can stay on top of properties as they become available on the market as well as within our office. As an agent we owe the client certain duties and any good agent would work hard to find you exactly what you are looking for while remaining loyal to the client and keeping private information confidential at all times.

Feel free to message or call me at anytime if you have questions.

Whether you are single or have kids has nothing to do with whether you can get a loan. Your income, credit and debt to income ratio will determine if/what kind of loan you can get into. Call a local mortgage person and have a chat. Good luck. ... more

Its been a while since you asked your question, but if you are still in the market or for those of you in a similar situation, I felt it was worth the time to answer here.......................
Many buyers have less than perfect credit, but if you want to get the best interest rates you should sit down with your Realtor and in turn with a recommended loan officer and find out what you can do to repair your credit, and how long that will take. I have helped many new buyers get on the right path to better their credit, and may be able to help you too. As far as HUD homes, I have been able to find some decent ones for my buyers, but you can bet that almost all need extensive and expensive renovations...therefore the low asking prices. There are many homes on the market that are excellent bargains for you, without as much investment into repairs. Give me a call/text/email and we can talk. Judi 203-915-6766 or email

Credit is tight right now. There is nothing wrong for wanting the best for your children. Wanting and good faith doesn''t mean a whole lot now. How secure is your income? Is it dependent on child support and a job that could be in jeopardy because of the market. Owning a home may not be the answer to security and what's best for your children.. A professional once said that the reason why my children have remained whole was that I was the constant. What that means is a roof over their head, needs met that mean survival and encouraging them to achieve more than I could; in otherwords progress and supporting themselves and being good to those around them. As I said in the first question presented, talk to state programs. You could talk to mortgage brokers but bottom line is there are constraints.. Step back, see what is best for your family. It could mean renting; it could mean buying. Just remember owning a home is not the ultimate accomplishment. Keeping your family whole in a town that meets your family needs is what is important.
Remember the government is not to blame. No matter how many times you ask this question, no Realtor has the answer.
