Assuming you have a steady, verifiable income, you should be able to get a loan. However, the cost of financing is based on a lender's risk. The higher the risk to the lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. Try to get your score up to 640 before you apply for a loan.

Many of the properties listed on this website are Scam Portals. I wouldn't trust Trulia at all. :/

It doesn't appear that this home is on the market, but to answer your question, it's a matter of preference, since it is somewhat equidistant from a number of stores. There are 2 Walmart Super Centers (one in north Fayetteville near the Mall and the other in downtown Springdale), as well as a Harps out on Hwy 412 East at Butterfield Coach Road. There is also a Walmart Neighborhood Market across the street from the Harps. All are within about 10 minutes driving time. Hope this helps.

If you are searching for a home in Springdale, check my website below for all of the homes currently on the market in the entireNW Arkansas MLS, not just Fayetteville. As an Accredited Buyer Agent I would be glad to help at no extra cost to you. Thanks in advance.

Not likely. But you go to the website of almost any bank and pre-qualify online. My suggestion is Liberty Bank. However, they are changing over to Centennial Bank and I don't know if you can still get to them using ... more

Comparables are based off "like" houses/land. These comparables are ONLY homes that have sold recently. Some of them are not even close to the subject property. These houses cannot be used by a licensed appraiser or even by a Realtor. Please have you Realtor see my listing with the comps attached. ... more

A small mortgage company perhaps. Work on your credit score and try in 3 months when your number is closer to 600

Angie Gardner, Real Estate Pro in Fort Smith, AR

Angie Gardner answered:

The Pros would be: No Financing Fees and costs associated at the Banks.Less Closing Costs.Go to to figure the interest etc. You should have a Lower monthly payment because Insurance like PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) and MIP (Mortgage Insurance Premuim isn't added onto your morgage loan.You don't have to get an Appraisal but make sure your not overpaying for the property.Some don't prefer a credit check.Faster closing.

The Cons would be: Normally a big down payment (depending on price range of the Home and Property owner financing for you)
higher interest rate since you can't get a loan at the bank.
A balance due in full in 5, 10, 15 yrs (Balloon Payment)

* Make sure papers are drawn up by an Attorney and set up Escrow at a Bank so when you make a payment, it goes directly to Seller's account and that way you have proof you're making those payments and making them on time.If you default, the Seller has the right to take the property back.

Good luck to you!

Vicki and Brian Goodell answered:
There are many factors that will determine how long it stays on the market. In California, there are homes that will receive multiple offers the first day on market. Other homes will sit for hundreds of days. It comes down to individuals; a buyer must like the home and be comfortable with the price. ... more
