Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

All you need is 5 more points then you can get a mortgage that would only require 3.5% down payment. You can even roll closing costs into the loan.

We have a credit rescoring program that can help you raise your score quickly, usually wiithin a few days. 5 more points should not be hard to get.

The best thing to do would be to have a pre approval done then I can see what we need to do to get your score up.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me.

hello Birdman2110 -

It appears that that property is currently owned by Bank of America and is not listed for sale. It was listed as recently as March of this year. Also, it does appear to be in a flood zone area.

Hope that helps!

I made a offer what I could afford. The buyer didn't accept. The buyer can counter. Go low it's a barter brother.

You would be better off saving money and improving your credit score so that you can buy in a year or two. Most RTO contracts heavily favor the landlord. There are exceptions, but if you end up unable to get financing in a year, you won't be able to exercise your option.

Beyond that though, looking for a RTO property would greatly limit your choice of properties, almost certainly requiring you to settle for a property that isn't that great.

If you are looking at a RealtyTrac listing, they are not generally on the market, and may never be. If you are looking for property in Yelm specifically, ask a local agent to send you listings that fit your criteria. If you find the home you're asking about, it's easy. If it's not on the list sent to you, then it probably isn't available. ... more

Banks do not work with the general public when they sell homes. Find yourself a real estate agent that will keep you up to date on the current properties available.

Yelm is a great place to own a rental home. There is a shortage of rental properties there and the turn around times for new tenants is days not weeks or months. Rents are also high in comparison to purchase prices on investment homes. ... more
