Hello Jay, what do you mean by bad credit? Do you have a BK, foreclosure, short sale or deed in lieu? Are you buying in MD or PA?

If you have lower scores between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA. If you have a minimum 620 fico score you may consider 3% down conventional.

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 purchase. Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

What are your fico scores, how much are you paying in rent, what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford? If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. Check out the web reference link below...

I would contact a company like ServePro or PuroClean and have them inspect this. Better to have a professional look at it instead of a landlord guess.

In 21 years, I have yet to see a house that was cheap enough or special enough to justify the risk and aggravation involved with buying a short sale or foreclosure. There are tons of dumpy homes for sale that you can purchase directly from the seller, not the bank. I suggest you buy one of those instead.

Check out 50 Marsha Dr in Cressona. Mike Wosniski and Terry Shay are the selling agents. First floor master bedroom and super bath with 2 bedrooms upstairs with full bath and first floor laundry. Only thing that needs to be done in your situation would be a fence around the back yard. ... more
