Seller is not happy with the Trulia information - especially since ZILLOW has corrected the error and would very much appreciate Trulia doing the same.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant. Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance?

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Hello Rsgoldbar, the room rentals start from $940 a month rent in Santa Rosa. Are you living alone and separate from your husband? How much are you both paying in rent now? What is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve?

The rentals in Santa Rosa start from $950 a month for a studio apt and up.

The purchase in Santa Rosa start from 269k for 1bd 1.5ba condo and the single family homes start from 280k for 2bd 1ba home.

You may qualify to buy FHA 3.5% down 2 years from a BK with a minimum 580 fico score. You may consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs from a minimum 620 fico score where you can buy with minimum out of pocket expenses.

If you decide you want to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

Because seller financing is uncommon, the buyer and seller would be wise to each consult financial and legal experts who understand how it works before entering into such a transaction. These experts should look out for their clients' best interests and guide them through the process.

Hey Hm50420,

There are so many variables and it's based on your situation and what you are looking for. There isn't a lot of inventory at the moment because it's the winter time and properties are starting to go back on to the market.

What I would wondering would be:
- How much could you afford?
- What type of property are you looking for?
- What's your goal in a few years and what's your situation like?

I lived in the area my whole life and I can definitely help you. You can reach out to me at (415) 890-6451 or giangelo@vanguardsf.com. You can also ook me up on google and look for Gi'angelo Bautista at Vanguard Properties.
