Interest rates and the cost of financing are based on the lender's risk. The higher the risk to the lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. Wait until your scores are around 640 before you try to buy a home.

Your Realtor should be able to search your local MLS for all short sales. But my question to you is why do you want to buy a short sale? Short sales can be a long, difficult process, and in the end you may not even close on it. And you may not even get that good of a deal. Most banks will only agree to a short sale if they can get "Fair Market Value" -- which is basically what other similar homes have been selling for in that area.

Furthermore, if there are multiple lien holders on the property, it makes it that more difficult. Sometimes secondary lienholders ask the BUYER to pay $$ in order to release the lien. Are you prepared to pay additional money out of pocket just to get a short sale approved? (when you can buy a similar home for a similar price and not have the hassle?) Probably not!

I'm assuming you sold your home through a company like HomeVesters for cash? There shouldn't be any problem as long as you still can fund the next home with cash or can qualify for a loan.

My motto is "Serving Dallas Metro And Beyond". Let me know if I can assist you with your upcoming purchase.

Don Groff answered:
Hi Lisa,

Find a lender you trust and who will work with you to see exactly what you qualify for and what amount of funds will be necessary. It is important to know all the details as buying a house is a complicated manner. Also note, and this is very important. Just because the bank or lender states you can afford "X" amount to buy a home does not mean you should automatically spend that much.

Take the time to look at your lifestyle and budget to make sure you do not buy a home that will make you 'house poor". The bank may state the highest dollar amount you can qualify for but only you can decide what will be a comfortable payment for you.

Best of luck to you as I know this is an exciting time!

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
Recent changes in Texas law place some stringent requirements on the seller that for your own sake you need to be aware of.
In the worst case scenario, if you fail to comply with Texas law, you will forfeit back to the buyer all monies collected from him since the start of the contract. Basically, this can bankrupt you.

You need to consult with an attorney, period. Realtors are not allowed to write a contract for deed, because of their complexity and the possible dire consequences for non-compliance.

You can look up the statutes and read them, but the contract itself should be written by an attorney.
http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/SOTWDocs/PR/htm/PR.5.htm and pay particular attention to SUBCHAPTER D. EXECUTORY CONTRACT FOR CONVEYANCE Sec. 5.062 and those following such as 5.069 and 5.077, where your annual requirements are described.

Good luck.
