There is a program I FREQUENTLY CLOSE WITH, that provided 10,000 towards down payment and closing costs. Please contact me if interested. I use this program regularly I could show you the HUD statement for my home that I bought using this program. On a 225,000 home I paid 6,600 out of pocket. That is less than the 3.5 required by FHA.

My NC Homes Team answered:
The real problem isn't your credit score, (though higher would be better in terms of the terms you'll be offered) the problem is you aren't going to find anyone who will offer you a mortgage for less than $50,000 other than a hard money lender at a very high interest rate. I suggest you speak with some reputable local lenders regarding a mortgage. If you have access to a credit union, I'd suggest starting there. ... more

UpNest Top Realtors answered:

You can list your house by working with a real estate agent, and they can put it on the MLS for you. If you're wanting to do for sale by owner (not recommended) you will have to pay for a flat fee listing service to be on Trulia.

We created our service for home sellers looking for the best deal possible. Agents will compete against each other to earn your listing, so you're more likely to receive a great commission rate. You'll also be able to compare agents so you can select the best agent possible! There's no risk to try us out, and it's completely free for you!

Good luck!
