100% financing loans are available for qualified veterans. Most of your closing costs can be included in the loan. But you will need some funds for the uncovered closing cost, insurance, appraisal, attorney etc.

Certain NYC agencies such as Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and outside the city the Long Island Housing Partnership offer down payment and.or closing cost assistance to qualified buyers in their respective areas. Contact them directly for more information. All the best.

Parkcarew, I had that experience once. They reviewed the house and found that some of the doors weren't up to code. It was an older house so it needed some work. I was able to point out that the house was built before the regulation, so it had been "grandfathered" in and didn't need to be up to code. That was able to keep me from having to redo it.

Good afternoon Theminister,

First steps:

Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.

Get a referral to a good, local, real estate attorney. Call the attorney, retain the attorney so you have her information handy when you make an offer. Having that information at time of offer helps you demonstrate to the Seller how serious you are, and they will consider your offer with more interest.

Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.

Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

Put together your Team of real estate professionals and shop 'til you drop!

More than likely no; rather than simply relying on online calculations consider visiting with any licensed loan officer; be aware that a mortgage pre approval letter is necessary to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

Anyone can find out the home owner's name including outstanding mortgage, tax status, ownership history even lien and foreclosure information by property report. You can get an online report within few minutes on website such as

All you need is the home address to start a search. If the report is available, you only pay a small fee to download.

Diana Hellman answered:
You are on the right track. Without good credit and a good savings for a down payment , you cannot move forward. Once you've achieved that, you should contact a financial professional to confirm your ability to get a loan or mortgage. The mortgage professional will issue a pre-approval for approximate prices, depending upon the taxes. You should then contact local realtors and view as many homes as possible that conform to your criteria. This way, you will learn the values in the particular area you are interested in. You will see that value is mostly dependent upon location, condition, and sq. footage. You will get greater clarity as you move forward with the process. Your realtor will also be very helpful. Good luck... ... more

Oleg Volfman answered:
Hi James.

Would be kind of hard to find a LEGAL basement rental. Find out if the basement is a legal rental, and check on ACRIS to make sure that is correct. You need to pay attention and do your research. Once you pay your deposit and move, and it's not legal, you need to find another place, and move again.

This is an answer to an old post, but this scenario happens all the time. Good Luck!!!

Thank you for your valuable time!
