Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

If we can get your score up to 580 I can help you get an FHA mortgage that only requires a 3.5% down payment. You can even roll closing cost into this loan.

I have a rapid score credit simulator that shows me what you can do to get your credit score up quickly, sometimes in as little as 3-5 days.

So getting to a 580 is very possible.

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

Hello our name is Denise & David Williams, we ar desperately looking for a 2 bdr Appartments/ house. My husband was laid off from both jobs the year we purchased the home. and was able to collect unemployment for only 6 months. that left me to struggle payin all 11 bills. We then hired Lexington Law to represent us for a modification charging us $1500.for there services. The home loan was from PHFA who expressed to us that Lexington Law did not represent or support us properly for the modification, and caused us to loose our home. And now we are out on street looking for somewhere to live. I'm a fulltime employee with bad credit and by the grace of God I thank him a million for allowing me to be here. But life's a struggle in Jesus Name I prey ,I Knw he will see me through this crisis. Amen ... more

Norman Bunn answered:
1) People can be very particular about countertops, so I would not make that change before putting it on the market unless it is in poor condition. Instead, you can give them an allowance if it becomes a sticking point. They might want to redo the whole kitchen.

2) Yes, paint is the cheapest way to upgrade the look of a house.

3) If it is unsafe, I would fix it. If not, let the new owner decide.

4) Where is the current laundry? If there is not one or it's stuck in the kitchen/basement, this might pay off.

5) Yes. Refinish the floors.

6) Luxury vinyl tile might be a good alternative.

So, my order would be:

2, 5, 6

distantly followed by 3, 4, 1

The correct way is to ask each buyer for their highest and best offers. In most states the listing agent can not mention what the highest offer is.
