Prosper Realty answered:
My only advice in your situation would be to contact Home Loans For All. We've sent quite a few clients to them with lower credit scores and they've almost always been able to find them a lender(s). I'll include a link to their website.

Best of luck to you!

Check with your lender. Likely it would work out depending on employment history and what type of debt you have to work with.

For FHA your down payment is nothing less than 3.5%. Depending on location, if its a rural area it may qualify for USDA.

There are other costs to remember as well. Home inspection, termite inspection and your closing costs are all additional to the down payment. ... more

lk4home: "NO JOSH, HAVE MADE OVER 80k IN IMPROVEMENTS OVER THE YEARS.. DON'T EXPECT TO GET THAT BACK, BUT JUST A SMALL PERCENTAGE OVER MARKET."

Response: If the seller is unwilling to negotiate list price, why should an agent want to negotiate fees? Is the seller going to be paying more than typical, especially since the seller does not want to list below market. ... more

For anyone who is in this type of situation, I have a way to knock out the sellers mortgage so they can qualify for a new loan. This will potentially work great for sellers who have had their properties on the market for a long time.

Mr. Totty,

The acceptance of your credit score depends on the individual landlord. When it comes to rentals, drive the neighborhoods and call the for rent signs that interest you and negotiate your lease w/ that landlord.

Just like all real estate, everything negotiable.

Hope this helps,

Josh Barnett, Realtor

We are selling her the house for more than we owe on the mortgage so I don't need to do any type of a short sale. My main concern was the tax implications. We purchased a new home last year and have never put this home on the market. We put a considerable amount of money into the property prior to buying our new home.($40,000 on the kitchen and another 30,000 for just general repair and granite throughout the home) We had no plans to move but happened to find our dream home on a lake and couldn't resist. The reason I'm selling it so cheaply to her is I don't feel that a lot of this money we invested would be returned in the sell price of the home. It would be my preference if I'm going to give away $70,000 in home improvements alone that it go to one of my children. At this time my daughter and her husband are the only ones that can quality for a loan in the 150,000 range. According to the property tax website our home is worth about $200,000. I plan on selling it to my daughter in the $150,000 range. I have never listed this home on the mls and am hoping that by doing this it won't destroy the home values in the neighborhood. There are so many variables in doing this I just wanted to make sure that I have thought of everything. We have this home on a ten year mortgage and are making payments of $2500.00 a month which is a complete and total waste of money. ... more
