Honesty and integrity are not negotiable, but unfortunately proving the lack of it may be more trouble than it's worth.
If you want to pursue this, you can start with the agents managing broker, they are responsible for their training and discipline. If you don't feel this is being handled properly, you can go to the Local Board of Realtors, if they are a member or the State Licensing office. ... more

Honestly I would just talk to a lender. A good lender should be able to quickly direct you in the right direction. Certain bank owned homes do qualify for special financing but I would ask about those as you come across them. ... more

9/4/11-9/3/12 = 121 sales at an average of $35,826

9/4/12-9/3/13 = 98 sales at an average of $44,500

You can do the rest of the math.

Those are some of the lowest prices per sf in the USA for in many cases, relatively newish single family.

The rest is a mix of 20th century whatevers, and top dollar goes to a 1999 build for $110000.

Clayton numbers are brutal to look at.

Tim Moore answered:
Well, if it is for sale it would be up to the owner to decide if they wanted to stop trying to sell it and allow it to be rented. A rent to own is still a rental and the renter agrees to buy it in a year or two and MUST get a loan from a bank to do so, otherwise the renter is in default and will loose their deposit and monthly option money. Most people wanting to sell do not want to fool with rent to own arrangements that rarely ever convert to a sale. ... more

Diamond82 answered:
My congentecy clause was for the appraisal if it came back lower, when the seller agreed to lower the price the admendment didn't say anything about the time allowed to re-disclose and I'm sure they knew I would have to because the price was changed which changed the loan amount. My file just got to the UW o. July 13 which was the date the seller put down for the closing. Everything is done tittle, HOI, taxes, employment verification, income, I just need a CTC from the UW but my fear is the seeker will back out because it didn't close July 13th they just sent the admendment to lower the asking price on July July 9th the seller is Fannie Mae. ... more

Dear Ruth:

It is 2 years/24 monthes from the discharge date. Make sure of the discharge date and that they are recorded are the same. Do keep your credit building and timely during the wait for that time to come and approach. Having lates after a BK is not a good thing for that wi=ould not look favorable for applying for a mortgage.

I have many success stories with buyers that have a BK, chapter 7 and then purchase and close on a home the day after the anniversary.

Thank you for taking the time to consider.
