Hello miodragcertic, there are many loan program choices for all situations with a loan broker like myself as we have about 25 banks we utilize to fund our clients. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. You may qualify for stated income loans if you are self employed and have a minimum 700 fico score with 30% down payment and have assets.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Crime free Neighborhoods

I've been seeing an inordinate amount of these questions popping up on Trulia in recent weeks. As I've said on the other threads I've commented on there's absolutely no way of guaranteeing that any neighborhood will have little or especially NO CRIME.

We're living in a very different time and place today. Unlike anytime since possibly the Great Depression we are living in very volatile socio economic times everywhere in America as well as most places in the World.

What with dynamics like poverty, homelessness, unemployment, illegal immigration and shear desperation it's clearly obvious why crime is on the rise everywhere. What were once considered very safe and secure upscale neighborhoods are now viable high value targets for those who wish to prey on them.

So the long and short of it is that there is no totally safe and secure way of keeping your neighborhood free of crime. The best thing you can do is become involved in your community and stay aware of the folks who live around you.

Gregorio Denny answered:
WOW, I apologize for all the answers you have received, the clearly don't understand your question or delayed financing.

Your answer is yes.

If you cash out on your current mortgage to purchase an investment property with all cash, you may use the delayed financing to secure a mortgage on the investment property , however you will be required to use these funds to pay down your mortgage that you cashed out.

From Fannie Mae:

"If the source of funds used to acquire the property was an unsecured loan or a loan secured by an asset other than the subject property (such as a HELOC secured by another property), the HUD-1 for the refinance transaction must reflect that all cash- out proceeds be used to pay down, if applicable, the loan (unsecured or secured by an asset other than the subject property) used to purchase the property. Any payments on the balance remaining from the original loan must be included in the debt-to-income ratio calculation for the refinance transaction."

Please contact me if you need more information.

Everyone here is correct about the rent to own being risky. For example the owner of the property could be sued and or have liens put against the property before you could buy it.

There are some companies out there that will buy the house you want and then lease it to you with a lease option. Much safer.

I have been researching t his, contact me for more information.
