I'm a first time buyer and have a good job. I've had some hiccups in my past due to medical bills but I'm on the right track now. Wells Fargo said they needed a 620 so I'm a little bummed…

If you had the cash to purchase it for what was owed, there would not be a problem. If you are within 30 days of foreclosure, and need a mortgage, there may not be time but that is where a lawyer could go to court for an injunction. You may want to speak to a lawyer to fond out your options. ... more

I would get a hold of a local real estate agent and have them help you with this. They should be able to give you a list of all foreclosures in the area that you are looking in. If you plan on using financing for your purchase I would also get a hold of a lender as well. Many foreclosed homes will require proof of funds or that you are pre-approved with a lender before you are able to make an offer. Lowell Sterling (below) has already shown an interest in helping you with your financing options so it might be a good idea to give him a call as well. Good luck to you. ... more

Hi Shea,

I do not see the home listed for sale but the tax records indicate that it is a 1 bedroom home, 926 sq ft and the market value is just above $36,000.

Roxboro once housed alot of textile mills and this home is probably one of the old company homes.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Mack McCoy answered:
Nothing. The base price for comparison should be the value of the house after the improvements are made, minus two-thirds of the utility value of the existing items that are to be replaced.

So, for example, let's say the house would be worth $200,000 with the updates. Windows are $10,000, a 30-year roof is $5000, central air is $3000. For example.

Well, there are existing windows, and they have utility value. If the house had no windows, adding $10,000 in windows would be a great improvement. If the house has windows, the upgrade isn't quite as substantial. If the roof has three years left, it's still functional.

Then, there's the value in being able to make your own choices, rather than have someone else make them for you.

So we have a house that needs $18,000 in updates, two thirds of that is $12,000, so the $200,000 house should be worth about $188,000.

Why not the whole $18,000? Utility value, and the opportunity to make your own choices. Suppose the windows were ten years old? They'd be perfectly fine, but not new. Nobody would even think of replacing them. What if the roof had eight to ten years of life?

The fact is that fixers are usually discounted twice - once by the seller, and then again by buyers.

All the best,

From US501, take Flat River Church Rd, cross over Hurdle Mills Rd onto Polk Huff Rd into Oak Ridge Subdivison. LaSalle is on the back end of the subdivision. Google Maps is always a good way to find it too. ... more

Gerald nailed it! That is what Realtors do, you know, help folks sell houses. Make sure that you get yourself an experienced local Realtor. First thing that will happen is that your house will be listed on the local multiple listing service. Ask your Realtor about sights that will also include your listing. ... more

Angela Leung answered:
FHA loan is a good choice.

1. They don't care much about credit. Bankruptcy which has discharged for 2 yrs can qualify.
2. You can put down as little as 3.5% for down payment
3. FHA Streamline will allow you to refinance after 6 months without credit check and no appraisal. FHA will refinance in the future at today's appraisal value regardless of the declining market. Thus even in declining area, prices dropped, still can refinance. The only requirement is that your original loan is FHA.

Don't know how bad your credit, please consult a mortgage agent to check your credit and options. If you need credit repair, Erica McClen (1st answer) has referred you a credit repair company which would help you too.

Good luck with your home searching.
