You can rent out your home after 7 months if there is a change in duty station and in most cases, can use your VA for the next home that you are relocating to. Feel free to reach out if you need specific help with your situation as we lend in all 50 states and I am especially fond of helping military families with financing. ... more

Reach back out to your loan officer and ask them if they removed one of you from the application. Likely it was just them going quickly and forgot to add the 2nd name. I've made the same mistake from time to time and just had to go back in and add a name. We are human, we do make mistakes sometimes. ... more

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

It will be difficult to obtain a mortgage unless you can show more income or have a cosigner.

We do however have a program that allows you to use business bank statements or personal statements to prove income. Sometimes if your self employed you may show more income on your bank statements vs your tax returns.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me.

Actually there is a Facebook page called "Where in Pensacola is...?" where you can ask this, and someone else has already asked about churches and received quite a few great replies.

Hope this helps!

Hi Rachel,

There are some areas that are USDA eligible that don't seem very rural.
Have you checked the address in the USDA site?

Go here:
& click the property eligibilty box, put in the property address and click go to see if your home is in an eligible area.

If it turns out that the home not in eligible area, yes your loan will get denied.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Diane Christner answered:
This is the kind of question best answered by a local FL real estate attorney, as you will want him or her review the specifics of this particular property in order to give you the specific answer you seek. Never assume you will get a clear title, as in foreclosure sales the property is being sold "as is" and the deed is not a regular warranty deed, it is a special warranty deed.

A special warranty deed gives only a limited warranty of title.
