Hello Nyasia, they may not be available and when they are they usually want 10-15% down or more which is non refundable. Do you have 10-15% down to risk? You may qualify for FHA financing already.

You may qualify for 10% down FHA with fico scores between 500-579 and from a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores and how much you invest into the purchase. How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford?

David Vonderburg answered:
Out of 30 randomly picked incidents in the last month, 7-23-13 to 8-23-13, there were 3 reports of larceny (shoplifting ) with one being a stolen laptop from a restaurant. 4 or so assaults in the apartment/condo areas. The rest were less serious as in traffic accidents, alarms, license checks. What crimes you are concerned with and what "a lot" is defined as is uncertain.

Businesses tend to provide opportunity for larceny, that's typical. Vagrants are like bears, they acclimate and wander into residental areas eventually. In that neighbourhood, that is not common. Sometimes that to the fact that it is actually the much higher traffic and population that the citizens are always visual and moving so do well to police their own areas.

As for homes, at about a 2% (per 100,000) annual burglary rate in all of Winston-Salem of 300,000 people, I personally think taking sensible and somewhat passive measures regarding your own home: lights, cameras, pets, alarms, low shrubbery, strategic thorny landscaping, frustrating entry systems - storm doors, screened windows, bolt locks and the like -- and the odd hornets' nest and bear traps placed here and there (just kidding!) -- is just common sense in any neighbourhood, along with knowing your neighbours and showing general vigilance is all you need to enjoy living anywhere here.

Kathleen Turner answered:
You need to speak with a bankruptcy attorney. Your legal right and ability to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is not related to your ability. or not, to short sell your home. The house will become part of the bankruptcy estate and will be dealt with following the bankruptcy laws in your State.

Get yourself professional advice. You will be able to sleeo at night.

Best of luck!

Much will depend on just how poor, however there are other factors that determine mortgage qualification, such as income, debt, etc.; therefore for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer; if you don't yet qualify, he/she may offer great suggestions as to what needs to be done.

Ken Clay answered:
With the caveat that I am not a lawyer, my understanding is that you cannot do this because the deed you provide to the 1st mortgage holder would still be encumbered by the 2nd mortgage, which they would not want unless both the 1st & 2nd are held by the same lender. There might be inter-departmental problems with this, but you could approach them.

I'm not sure about the rest of your ? Call me at (336) 782-1237 to explain more of what you are asking & I'll see if I can help.
