If you'd like to purchase a home, which sounds like something that you'd want from reading your post, I would suggest that you talk to a lender or two and go from there.

I lived in this zip code for over 4 years, in the El Dorado subdivision to be more specific, and I never had any issues. All my neibghors were very nice and the property went up in value by 20% over the time I was living there. There have been several new developments in the past year that I feel have improved the area. ... more

Home are selling in one to two weeks in most areas of the Austin market. If your home is not selling or even receiving offers below the list price it overpriced. It also needs to be in tip top shape to receive top dollar so make sure the home is spotless, clean and staged as that makes a huge difference, your competition is.

If you are working with an agent let them show you the comps and take your homeowner hat off and be realistic as to the value of your home. Pricing it too high already may have cost you thousands... homes in any market but especially a hot market get a stigma on them when their days on market number gets too high... potential buyers say... what's wrong with this house?

Also, pricing your home too high makes other homes that are currently or pending look like even better deals so you are helping them sell over yours.

Hope this all helps. Fix the error, be realistic and do what you can to make the home stand out and you will sell it fairly quickly I would think.

You can show your income tax statements. You have to show you have income to support the purchase.

There are no longer stated income loans.

Hi Jessie,

I had a similar situation with a client last month.
My mortgage broker was able to help them get an FHA loan.
There is a program that can qualify you after 2 years bankrupcty and or forclosure. if you have established credit during that time.
You should contact a mortgage broker for advice.

Frank Bailey answered:
Chris came in this late, but, has your friend considered putting the property up for a short sale? This may be his best way out, or if you are looking at this house as an investment, you may want to consider getting an appraisal (about $350) bucks to determine if you even want to get into this situation. Also, you may need to have a heart to heart with your friend to make sure there aren't any "oops I forgot to tell you about the additonal liens on the property", those tend to be "forgotten" in casual conversation. As far as the other house you have an accepted contract on, you may be out of luck with the earnest money if you didn't buy an option period. Hope this helps. ... more
