You may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 3 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 3 million.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You can sue the builder, in fact nowadays you can sue whoever you want to sue. I would suggest that you read all documents that you have signed and bring to your attorney as well.

Unless you own the land, it will not be considered Real Estate. You cannot get traditional mortgage financing. A mobile home is consider more like an auto loan.

Maybe I am reading this incorrectly. If the manufactured home has surrendered title and converted to real estate by combining the mfg home and the land, you have a chance. ... more

Sellers lists their homes as-is for a quick sale. They're confident of the home's overall condition. Still there are few risks are inn minds of buyers when they want to buy it as is like All repairs are my own sole responsibility and repairs and upgrades may not payoff.

Was there a sump pump in place under the house for removing water when it reaches a certain level?

Also, you can talk to a foundation professional that can discuss de-humidifiers, vents, and other topics as needed for a particular situation.

Kind regards,

Is this new agent under the same brokerage as the previous agent? I would suggest that you read your contract again before deciding to work with another realtor/brokerage.

Greentekfirst answered:
Property liens can be Involuntary (I.E. HOA, judgment, mechanic, tax etc.) or Voluntary (mortgage, refinance, home loan etc. ).

Both have to be satisfied/paid in full before title can be conveyed properly. In most cases, Involuntary liens can be negotiated with the creditor for a smaller amount due to the nature of the encumbrance.

First mortgages (AKA senior liens) always take priority over second mortgages (junior liens) in a foreclosure proceeding or auction.

Actually there are more this year than past. Suggest you look for the listings for new postings.
Craigslist, Zillow, Hotpad are the best internet sources.

You need to have the appls, references, pay stubs, credit rpts ready. There is not much time to fool around when the opportunity comes. Landlords will take the best candidate if you are willing.

Juliacresci answered:
I had a problem with a licensed contractor who charged me for things I never got. I complained to the licensing board. They investigated and said that they found violations, I would receive money back and that I would need to go to court. the case was taking a long time because the contractor wasn't producing all the info (warranties and receipts) that were requested. The investigator got tired of the case and threatened to close it even though it was the contractor that was holding up the settlement. I just received a letter that they were disposing my complaint and putting a letter in their file for technical violations. I am furious. The CSLB isn't there for consumers unless they can get rid of the case quickly. This company is out there to scam other elderly people like me and get away with just a slap on the hand. The BBB is even worse. Don't trust anyone. ... more

Sonja Mckinney answered:
I negotiated the mortgage lien on an investment property and entered into a contract for sale with an investor. I have recently discovered that there are a ton of city liens on the property that equate to much more than the property is valued and the investor has offered.

I want to release this property and of course the seller is trying to hold me captive. Is there an expert that negotiates these types of liens? If so who do I contact (attorney, other)? Can the buyer hold me to a contract if I can't pay off the liens?
