Your contract would actually depend on when the tax sale is going to happen. The current owner can quit claim it to you and then you would be responsible for the back taxes. (the price of the building) You may want a title company to do a title check to see if that is the only lien. Sewer bill, mechanic lien, mortgage etc. ... more

Although I rarely endorse online lenders, I did have a transaction of less than $50,000 with Quicken last December. They did make the buyer jump through flaming hoops all the way to closing, but close it did!

The person they worked with was a man named Cort Johns, here is his contact information:

Cort Johns | Quicken Loans Home Purchase Specialist
Direct: (313) 338-2230 | Toll Free: (800) 226-6308 x82230

Look for private money lenders and expect to pay a little more in interest. Big lenders are a lot harder to find at that low dollar amount. Best of luck...

MelvinC answered:
I think it all depends on the lender. I saw online there is no credit score minimum for Vets but then all the lenders I talk to say you need to have a 620 or 640. I would say you need to talk to a lender or a broker that works with multiple lenders to get a straight answer. ... more

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Actually, that's not necessarily so.

My buyer did lose his job 2 weeks before the closing..........the mortgage company went to verify employment, and since he had been let go, he lost his mortgage commitment - he couldn't buy the home.

Since the purchase was subject to a mortgage, and through no fault of his own, he lost his job.......the deal was cancelled..... and he got his deposit back.

Dale Weir answered:
I'm not quite sure what your question is. If tou have a legally binding contract, there are provisions in it go protect both tjhe buyer and the seller, including provisions for both sides to be sble to take legal action against the other if the other side suddenly doesnt perform and fulfill thrir obligations under the terms of the contract. That said, loan commitment is typically a couple weeks before closing and thats the pount the buyer has to have their loan in place . If it can be shown that the buyer is purposely not applying to get the loan or giving the mortgage lender the required documents, the seller can take legal action, but a job loss is a jib loss ... more

It all depends on your note. You may received an interest credit at time of closing then you may have a payment due the immediate 1st of the month. Typically the first 5-7 days of the month could go either way so you need to check your note. ... more
