Hi
You can reduce your insurance up to 25% by doing the wind mitigation inspection and for validity of 5 years the cost of this inspection about $80.

I'd also say no to the repo. If you are serious about wanting to buy a house, it would be a great idea to talk to a lender now so they can give you some guidance on your specific situation as to how you can start improving your credit instead of making it worse. ... more

This isn't a response, but a question. My parent's house is under contract and they have been looking at houses and they put an offer on one for full asking price over 72 hours ago without receiving a concrete response. There is obviously a contingency that my parents house sells, but shouldn't they have given (the seller) some sort of response by now? ... more

Hi Nithin,

I grew up near the Lake Mary and have practiced local residential real estate for over 10 year and can definitely advise you on locations within a 25 mile radius of Lake Mary that will have excellent resale value. If you would like custom recommendations feel free to reach to me at 407-921-1310. Seminole county is the place to be for great schools, home value appreciation and wonderful community. Some of my favorite immediate areas of recommendation would be Longwood, Debary, Winter Springs, and a few more hidden areas of opportunity that I think you would love. Contact me today and I will create a home buying action plan based on your unique needs and goals. ... more

Based on what I can see you have a high chance of getting qualified for an FHA or even a conventional loan which may give you a lower payment. Since you have 20% you can avoid the extra charge of mortgage insurance on your monthly payment. Concerning your charge offs the way that the bank will look at that will vary on the lender and the individual loan conditions. If you would like I have a great lender that specializes in your situation and can advise you on whether you would qualify right now or need to wait a bit longer. He does have a program that works with buyers 3 years out of bankruptcy but you need to speak with him about the details. Let me know if I can connect you and I would be happy to do so as well as create an action plan that will lead you to home buying success. ... more

The answer I gave 3 and a half years ago still applies. For investors, they should set up their pro-formas with 10% per month and 50% of one month as a lease fee. Negotiate for better of course, but use those for planning. ... more
