Hello Reedredbone, if you figure out what city/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. The rentals in Southfield start from $820 for 2bd 1ba single family home, from $1,000 for 3bd 1.5ba single family home and from $1,050 for 4bd 1ba single family home.

The purchase in Southfield start from 59k for 2bd 1ba single family home, from 84k for 3bd 2ba single family home. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in Southfield, MI. You may consider 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. You will have to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Check out the web reference link and get started today...

I was told once upon a time that the closing costs could not exceed a certain percentage of the loan amount, And closing costs are a fairly set amount. Not sure what those numbers were, but for example, $2,000 in closing costs can't be more than 5% of total loan amount, means loan can't exceed a total of 43000 or so. Is there any accuracy to that and is that part of where the "limits" are established from? ... more

Nobody here can answer your question without seeing your complete finances. You need to contact a local lender, have them pull your credit and discuss what options you have. We don't know the answers to the following questions:

Are you salaried (receive a W2) or self employed? How low is your income?
What is your debt to income ratio?
Good credit does not indicate your credit score. People can have a credit score of 650 and say it's good credit. It's not.
A lender would need to see more information on your investment property.

I am in the beginning stages of applying for a mortgage on my own. Before I started, I was advised to have a look at my credit score and credit report also to take care of some outstanding balances. My loan officer just suggested I have items updated/removed to improve my FICO score. He gave me the contact of: (pyramideye.hack(AT) and in 2 days he fixed my credit score to 784.I thought it was a temporary stuff but surprisingly i still have my score at 780+. I will STRONGLY recommend them for all credit score upgrade, bank hacks, social media hack, phone hack etc. He is the best out there, totally legit and cheap!! ... more

Terry Ault answered:
I am a landlord and property manager and there are good ways to get around a credit check. First off you have to be entirely forthright with the manager in the application interview and give them the heads up that your credit is shaky. Then reassure the interviewer that you have cash. Save enough for twice the security deposit! This is very impressive to have an applicant with the self discipline to save that kind of money. There are no rules that I am aware of preventing over-paying the security deposit but be sure the document reflect that double security.

Good Luck!

Be careful with your spending (save it until you purchase) when you are trying to buy, you don't want to hurt your chances of buying your "affordable dream home"!
