Karen Weathers answered:

My understanding is that if each of your scores are different, a lender will sometimes use the score that falls in the middle. I am not sure if it works differently for VA loans but I can recommend a lender who does VA loans and who would be able to help you. Your best bet is to speak with a lender for guidance. I have had buyers who have proudly and successfully taken advantage of their VA home loan benefits. ... more

In CA, the answer
Even if you ask for a copy of the sellers's rejection, the listing agent might ignore your request.The CA RPA has a space for the seller's initials on the last page to reject an offer and this is highly recommended for every broker to do this, but it is not legally required. So, it is basically depends on the agent. I always confirm receiving the offer and inform a selling agent about the process since it is deeply unsatisfying to find myself in the same situation when my clients' offer is ignored. ... more

I had a great experience with Naca in Georgia!!!!! In 1999 I finished their program/requirements in 4 months. Including negotiations to settle and pay a few utilities bills left unpaid in my name when I moved out of a roommate situation. Going in, I had paid my rent on time of over a year, day care had ontime payments, and I had been employed for 2+ years. I had other debts and okay credit. I had the money for my inspection $200 and my dad bought me a refrigerator. I bought a brand new home, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, basement on an acre lot, in a swim/tennis community. I was a single parent of 2 kids. I recently sold that house after living there 17 years. Bank of America had my loan the whole time. I never did volunteer hours to speak about the program, and wasn't contacted to, I forgot about that honestly. I recently bought a house the traditional way with my husband with USAA military it was an horrible experience, constantly needed documents and proof of everything and thousands of dollars. With realtor fees it was almost $18,0000. You are foolish to not take advantage of the VALUE and BENEFIT of this program. At each meeting, just do what they ask, which is have your documents and forms filled out. It is that simple. Most people show up and do not have their items, like proof of employment or tax returns. When you do not, you are sent home and and have to wait months for another appointment. Those with a bad experience, you will find, simple do not follow instructions normally the first time anyway in everything they do. ... more

We are going to be buying a new home soon and I want to see what they have to offer.... but I'm a little concerned with all the bad reviews... but our refi process was awesome ... more

Nobody can help you save. The easiest way to save is to find a job making more money or get a 2nd job. Also cut your expenses. In the meantime, rent.
