First and foremost, you should get a CPA to file all of the tax years that you missed. Once your financial health is back in order, you can start thinking about purchasing a home. In my professional opinion based on everything in your post, you are not ready to purchase a home. You should look in your current rent agreement and see what it says about month to month.

Your diligence can include a report from a local law enforcement agency. A totality of the circumstances can include a visual inspection of the neighborhood; or, it can involve attending a neighborhood watch meeting in the domiciles area.

What usually happens is they verbally accept an offer but the listing agent can not put it in pending status until it is fully executed which can take some time.
You can put in an offer but you probably will be wasting your time. You can ask your agent to put in an offer as a back up. I would make your offer very clean and strong. ... more

2 reasons a home doesn't sell - price or marketing.

Price the home correctly - based on condition, repairs needed, upgrades done and market value of the area.

Market the home properly - great well lit pictures, accurate description and data, and mass internet visibility to capture both local and relocating buyers.

If the marketing is off or the price is wrong, it will cause problems for you. Good Luck

Tucker Real Estate in Selma manages rental properties. I do not have their phone with me but I am sure you could easily find it in the yellow pages or on the web. I am currently in Washington State but will be back to Selma on Wednesday. The local newspaper, Selma Enterprise/Kingsburg Recorder is your best source for listing of rental homes in Selma. Good luck! ... more

Hi Just looking, with an appropriate credit score and funds that would be needed at closing, you should be able to refinance. I have some lenders who may be able to help. If your home is appraised for less than you owe on the home, you may have to bring additional funds to closing. You need to talk with a Realtor to see what your home could sell for in today's market. ... more

The disadvantages...foreclosures are sold "as-is." That means you pay for inspections - and you should get plenty of them! - and the bank will most lilely NOT pay for any repairs. Make sure you have Realtor representation to protect you through the process. ... more
