The photos look fine to me... it's possible there's something going funky on your end.

Try a different browser... sometimes that will help.

Hi Rhshedevil013,

We need a little more information in order to answer your question.

Are you saying you need to bring $5,500 to closing after the 6% seller assist? If the answer is yes then I would agree with you, the closing costs are too high.

Your down payment will be $3,045 so it "looks" like your closing costs are $5,500 - the down payment of $3,045 =$2,455 + the seller assist of 6% (or $5,220) =$7,675 in closing costs. That's way too high for a purchase price of $87,000.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Hi Elifpilon,

I have an option that may work for you that wouldn't requires so much money down!

Since your mother is going to live in the home you can do a normal conventional loan instead of an investment property.

Did you ask for feedback on what you can do to improve your credit scores? Aside from talking to other lenders (each bank has it's own decision making process), I'd be asking for advice on increasing your scores if that is the only thing holding you back. ... more
