First and foremost this is a business transaction. So you should interview and choose the best agent for the job that needs done.

There is not always a static answer to this question. So many things play into the answer. I would surely consult a mortgage professional to have a non committal conversation. If nothing else, it will allow you to view homes with a stronger sense of confidence in your purchasing power!
Best of luck!!

Hi Honda
Our approval guidelines allow us to do an FHA loan with as low as a 580 credit score. However, it's important to note that meeting the credit score requirement in and of itself does not guarantee approval.

When your credit score is under 620, there are probably going to be some stricter requirements added on top of normal loan requirements. Your debt ratio may be limited to 43% of your income. You'll probably need a spotless credit history in the last 12 months, along with a good explanation for any late payments or collections previous to that. You may also need to complete a homebuyer education course through HUD.

Give me a call and we can discuss your options and I can provide you with some guidance on this.

you have all the right to hire or fire your agent. If there is no fee mentioned in the contract that your wife signed, you should not be charged. And in PA, sellers pays buyer agent, not buyers.
It is important to work with a agent who is local, knows the market and is responsible.
best wishes,

Hello Julie,

1% to either side, unless otherwise stated. If you are buying a Fannie mae owned property they will require you to pay the whole 2%.

I may be able to provide financing for you.

Luckily for borrowers like you with limited credit, there are other factors which can offset the risk which may enable a lender to offer financing. One example is providing evidence that rent has been paid on time for the last 12 months if you are currently a renter. Other factors such as money in reserve and a low debt to income ratio can help.

You probably will be limited to borrowing no more than $417,000 which is the coforming loan limit in this area.

I will be happy to discuss. I moved to HV Bank close to 2 years ago so I could help borrowers like you and have had great success.

Hi Hector

My advise to buyers is to begin before you are ready. Sure you want to have enough money saved or you want to wait for the big income tax check. Or whatever the reason. This is great but by delaying you may have to wait even longer. When you get the itch to buy contact your local bank or credit union and look into getting pre-approved for a mortgage. It not always a bad idea to get more than one quote. Be advised though this could lower your credit score a few points. This way you will know if you can even qualify for a mortgage. If you have any credit issues you can begin to correct them before you begin the process of buying a home. You cannot only shop interest rates.I recommend that you get a copy of all the lender fees they charge and make a comparison. In the long run you could be getting a lower rate but still paying more. As long as the mortgage is above $50,000.00 you should be ok. Many lenders will not give you a mortgage under that amount. Be advised that even though you are pre-approved with one lender you may still use a different lender to purchase your home if you find a better deal later.Not everyone will tell you this. I work with my buyers so they understand what they are paying. As a Buyers Agent I give my clients an education in buying a home. It's not about the sale. It's about having a satisfied buyer and knowing what is going on every step of the way. So Hector applying for a loan is easy. It's who you work with to buy your home that can make the difference. I am always available 24/7 by cell phone or e-mail to answer any questions you may have.

You get what you pay for! In this case you get top ranking schools, a highly educated neighborhood of professionals, a strong family community, beautiful parks, libraries, transportation, high end shopping, well trained and quick response police & fire force, proximity to the city with the space of the suburbs, and well maintained streets and public spaces. You could get more space for less money, but you certainly won't find the quality of all the best features found in the homes on the Main Line. ... more

Absolutly true, these pests are indigenious to our area and can be easily treated, as long as the damage has not impacted the house structurally. A good home inspector can determine the damage. These are not the same kind of termites that you have in Florida.
