Yes you can rent with some credit issues but you may have to put additional deposit. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in Walnut and neighboring cities.

The rentals in Walnut start from $1,600 for 2bd 1ba condo, from $1,950 for 3bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from $2,350 for 3bd 2ba home.

The purchase in Walnut start from 327k for 2bd 2ba condo and up.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

Ofcourse, you can get the home of your choice in the stated locality. You can continue the selling process either by yourself or with the help of realtor. If you want to continue on your own, Google the listing available on that area and call them for quotation and negotiate the deal. ... more

There are scammers everywhere, be careful. I suggest you find an Agent to work with. Interview them personally, at their office, talk to their Broker. You won't get scammed!

Centermac Realty answered:

Usually seller's miscalculation of their finances is not a legal ground to back out of the binding contract even if no escrow has been opened. Opening escrow is required performance of the contract. There are ways to cancel this if buyer fails to perform his obligations in a timely fashion beyond that there is really no legal excuse to cancel the agreement. ... more

Centermac Realty answered:

The answer depends on the lenders, the number of loans on the property,. etc. It really is case by case basis. Typically it could take anywhere from 3 to 6 months or even a year. Short sale is not for every one . These days, banks don't offer up much discounts like they used to. ... more

CasSTRS underwrites to FNMA guidelines.
If your contract calls for Section 1 clearance, then it will be required.
If your contract states that the termite report is for informational purposes only and that you are taking the property "as is", then a clearance will not be required.

However, should the appraiser call the item in question, then that item will need to be addressed and corrected.

Orin Sherman answered:
I have learned that if something is suspicious it is because the whole story is not being told or misinterpreted.
Why did you ask this from the lender's side of things i.e. "I have a lender tied with my agent..." First I would investigate and make sure everything is on the up and up. For instance your listing agent has a REALTOR's license and so does the Buyer's Agent, otherwise they may not be ethically bound to work together or licensed.
If everything is on the up and up; your agent should have his/her broker contact the listing broker and get on the same page but before that your agent should have already gone through the steps of writing up an offer, and provided to the listing agent. This Real Estate 101 and your agent for sake of this writing submitted the paperwork then there should be a response, also in writing. Again if not, the Broker's should be informed of the non-compliance. My feeling is that someone is not following process or something weird is going on. From experience I have had this happen when a listing agent was holding off a property for another buyer, fearing my offer would get accepted over their friends. That is when the brokers step in. But again, your agent should know all this, it is basic stuff and makes me wonder if it is your agent and not the listor.

It depends what you have in mind but that particular property has large yards and the costs would range from at least $50k-$100k. You could spend millions if you wanted to but right now the market is slow and you can obtain competitive bids. If you just want to build fences, put in some paths, grass and sprinklers it could easily run $100k or so including permits, plumbing, wiring, etc. You will need cash to buy materials and pay contractors. Good luck. ... more

Hi Lucy,

Even under those circumstances you still may be able to qualify for a loan. I have a client who is in a similar situation as yours and we just got them a loan. We are currently in escrow now on a home that got accepted and will be closing by month end. Let me know if you need further assistance.
