I LIVE BEHIND THEIR RECENT DEVELOPMENT AT HEATHER BROOK IN MORGANTOWN. THEY ARE NOT GOOD NEIGHBORS. WE WATCHED THEM POUR A CONCRETE FOOTING FOR THE 25 UNITS STRAIGHT ON TO COMPACTED DIRT WITHOUT A GRAVEL BASE, THEY FINISHED THE DEVELOPMENT IN FRONT OF US IN MARCH BUT HAVE YET TO SEED AND PLANT A TREE LINE. MY WIFE AND I LOOK AT MUD DO TO POOR DRAINAGE. THE NEW NEIGHBORS HANG THEIR LAUNDRY ON THE DECK RAILING AND DOUBLE PARK IN THE ROADWAY. IT WAS KIND OF HUMOROUS WATCHING 3 DIFFERENT DECK INSTALLERS CORRECT THE INCOMPETENCE OF THE THE PREVIOUS SUB-CONTRACTOR. i HAD TO CONTACT OSHA FOR SAFETY VIOLATIONS THAT WERE UNADDRESSED BY BERKS. I WOULD NEVER BUY A HOME FROM THEM AFTER WATCHING HOW THEY BUILT THIS DEVELOPMENT. SUB-CONTRACTORS APPEAR TO DO THERE OWN THING AND NOT PROPERLY SUPERVISED. ... more

There are plenty of options for you. You can most likely purchase a home right away without even having to go through the whole mortgage process.

Give Port National a call and say that you were referred by Jesse.

Don't let these banks and lenders take you for a ride. There are much easier (and less expensive) ways.

The bankruptcy is long enough ago that this should not pose an issue. We can work on an approval for you.

Good Morning,

I just saw your question looking for a list of lenders to work with you to start your home buying process.

I have several lenders that I have worked with over my 27 years in Real Estate and would be happy to meet with you to help you to get started.

Each person has their own needs, and I'd be happy to help you evaluate which lender would have the right program for you.

Please feel free to give me a call, I'd be glad to help !

Wanda Moore,

Valerie Mackey answered:
Unfortunately NOT, I'm afraid. Banks do not lease or rent out foreclosures - they will ONLY sell them or keep them off the market until they're ready to sell them. The only exception to this that I have ever seen has been a multi-unit building, fully rented, which the listing agent agreed to manage for the bank during the sale proceedings, since it's much easier to sell an investment property like a multi-unit if it's already rented. However, once a bank has foreclosure on a single family home, I have never known any bank to agree to rent or lease it out. They are under an obligation to sell it in order to repay the investors to whom they sold the mortgage in the secondary market.

There MAY be exceptions to this - I'm an agent in Reading, PA, which is a high-turnover rental market with a lot of foreclosures, so the banks only want to sell their foreclosures - but as a general rule I believe it's safe to assure you that you are better off not looking to rent or lease a foreclosure property.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

Yes you can get approved with a 655! You probably don't need to get your scores up anymore. There are Lenders that can do a 600 mid score home loan. They just aren't always easy to find and some try to over charge you on the rate and fee's. I have had a lot of my clients with 640 scores approved for a home loan with The Lenders Network, not bad rates either. If anyone can you get approved they can! ... more
