You might be able to get a loan with a 580 credit score, but you should wait until your score is around 640 before you try to buy a home. Interest rates are based on a lender's risk. The higher the risk to the lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. Get your credit score up to about 640 before you try to buy a home.

I'm not sure I'm understanding your question. If you are looking for a place to rent then the landlord will be the one who can decline the tenant.

Are you currently under contract? I would notify your agent, and the title company. This will need to be cleared up prior to closing.

If the person isn't paying their HOA dues...then the HOA can file a lien on the property, and then eventually foreclose on it, depending on your state's due process requirements. As far as "How to do that?" -- you'd need to hire an attorney.

Most Buyers try to do it backwards! They frequently lose their first choice in homes, because of it...we are in a highly competitive buying market in the entire Greater-Houston area, where the really NICE homes get multiple offers, and you need the credentials READY, so Sellers are interested in YOUR offer. ... The RIGHT way, is to deal with an agent who is highly experienced IN THE AREA of your homesearch, and ASK that locally-experienced agent WHO to get PRE-APPROVED for a mortgage loan with. (Don't troll for "wannabe" Mortgage "professionals" on the internet.) That is the very first step, and THEN, we''ll KEEP you informed about the rest of the process, so you'll ALWAYS be 1-step ahead, instead of the other way 'round. We work with the LARGEST REALTY in TEXAS, and we're assisted by highly-experienced mortgage professionals with one of the largest DIRECT-LENDERS in the USA, who can get you the BEST rates and terms. We have assisted our clients ALL THE WAY through, and SOLD over $100 million in homes,-- FINE homes, right here in SPRING and the surrounding area;-- HUNDREDS of homes, all across the NW areas of Greater Houston-- and we'd like to help you, too.

Megan Becerra answered:
Hi Werr,

There is no quick method in determining this as it depends on many factors. You have to compare the home being built with the similar ones sold in that particular neighborhood recently. You may see a difference in price per square foot if one home has some extra features, even if they are right next door. If one home has a pool for example, then the price per square ft. may be higher than one without. Avg. price per sq. ft. is determined when you compare similar properties in a close proximity to one another. This is when it is most useful to have a real estate agent assist you in conducting a market analysis.

Hope this helps!
