Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, so the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.

You may still be able to take advantage of the insolvency exemption. Read IRS form 4681 to run the worksheet and see if you qualify. While that isn't as straight as the debt relief act, it may still benefit certain people that meet the litmus test.

To your question, no. I haven't heard anything of substance about reinstatement of the act.

Olivia, I understand your frustration. Our housing inventory is quite a bit different than NYC. For the $800 price range, take a look in Stafford.

I'm sorry for your loss. I would need a little more information but I think you are referring to the FHA 3yr first time homebuyer. 5% down conventional loans are back (compared to 3.5% FHA loans) and they are much better deals because of the lower mortgage insurance. Depending on where you want to live, there are some other 100% financing options. You mentioned that you are already pre-approved so as long as you are pre-approved for a mortgage, you should be fine to purchase a new home. I believe the 3 yr rule only means that you can use an FHA mortgage once each 3 year period. Does that make sense? I would be happy to answer more questions and help you with your home search. Feel free to contact me when you are ready. I am an agent and have a lot of experience and skills in real estate finance that will be helpful to you. ... more

House rent prices are ridiculous, and some owners don' t even have the common sense to check the neighborhood and the house and price it accordingly. Example: there is a house in Carlin Pl which is not an attractive neighborhood, or necessary looking safe to live in, that cost 1,600 for 3bed, 2bth, 1half , and there is another town house in the same street renting for 1, 350 and it has the same amount of bedroom and baths. IT IS CRAZY! No regulations for how much the owners can charge a month! ... more

Samuel:

Some of my clients have bought homes after the 3rd anniversary of their foreclosure, however each situation may vary. I can get you connected with one of the finest lenders in the area which can look into details for you and guide you through the process.
One you are approved, I'd be glad to find you the perfect home. Please give me a call and I will get you started. Thanks ~
I wonder, why your foreclosure is not showing on your report though!!

Nick, whenever you buy a Bank Owned Foreclosure deal AKA (REO) if they send you the Bank Addendums, you still dont have a contract Yet! Even if you send the bank addendums back to the bank, its still not ratified yet! They have to send you back the Fully-Ratified Original contract, Plus the bank addendums fully-ratified: Which is signed by Buyer (YOU) and SELLER (Asset Manager from the Bank)! In order for you to be Fully Under contract.....Signed, Sealed, and Delivered.....It sounds to me like you were so close and almost there, but never got back the Original Contract (Signed by Seller) and or the Bank Addendums signed by the Seller? ... more

The first thing to start working on is the Credit Situation, Yes there are government programs and also state programs out there that can certainly help you out! There is a government grant program that assists with your cash down payment, and or closing costs or both! There is also a 1st time homebuyers loan, done through the VHDA (Virginia Housing and Development Authority) its called an FHA+ LOAN! And many other programs as well, However all of these programs require you to have good Credit! You should start on the credit situation first and foremost, I have an extremely good Credit Repair company that I can refer you to if you are interested? ... more

Hello Navin:

It was wonderful talking to you, I've jot down your investment request and will be working on it, however there are not many investment properties left in the market to flip as there were used to be in the past few years.
I will keep my eyes open to any good investment opportunity and will contact you immediately via phone or email. I will not send you any listing which does not make sense as per your expected ROI. My website does provide up to date listings, which is a great source for all of my customers and clients. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, looking forward to be of service!!

Paul Simpson answered:
From what I understand it sounds like you did not have third party approval. The bank needed to net 190K and your stepdaughter was going to offer 180K. Even with 5K earnest money deposit the offer would still be 180K meaning your offer would fall short of the banks expectations by 10K and the closing date is one wrote into the offer as a day your stepdaughter wanted to close by. This does not mean your stepdaughter will not be able to purchase the condo so stay on top of it . ... more
