The Fair Credit Reporting Act states:
Consumer reporting companies must investigate the items you question within 30 days. They also must forward all the relevant data you provide about the inaccuracy to the organization that provided the information. After the information provider receives notice of a dispute from the consumer reporting company, it is required to investigate, review the relevant information, and report the results back to the consumer reporting company. If this investigation reveals that the disputed information is inaccurate, the information provider has to notify the nationwide consumer reporting companies so they can correct it in your file.

When the investigation is complete, the consumer reporting company must give you the results in writing, too, and a free copy of your report if the dispute results in a change. If an item is changed or deleted, the consumer reporting company is not permitted to put the disputed information back in your file unless the information provider verifies that it is accurate and complete.

Every lender has a different requirement. 20% is pretty standard, but there are other options available. Call me and I can help guide you through the process.

Hard to tell. Different boards, whether coop or condo, can have different down payment requirements. Coops are usually less expensive so your down payment may translate to a higher percentage.

I suggest you get a pre-approval letter from a mortgage banker on how much you can afford to buy, and get a real estate agent of your own to help you with the search. Good luck!

How much you "have" to put down, it up to your lender, your credit score, and the type of loan you're taking out. Talk to your lender.

You can if it is an FHA approved condo, meaning the government will back the loan. As for maintenance fees, they vary from building to building.

Tim Moore answered:
For a property to allow an FHA loan one thing is it must pass a FHA inspection from a FHA inspector. It must be in an area where they allow homes to use an FHA loan. You then must qualify for the FHA loan and put down 3.5% for a down payment (or more). The difference in conventional is you often need 20% down but sometimes 10 or 15% is needed. There is no inspection required and if you put down 20% you won't have any PMI or MIP payments as with FHA. You need to speak to a lender 1st and go from there. ... more

Alain Picard answered:
I would definitely suggest that you and the current owner use your own Real Estate agents. There is just so much that is involved with the purchase of a home it is almost always a good idea to have the expertise of an agent to help with the sale. I hear it all the time when a seller and buyer do this on their own someone ends up not being happy with the results in the end. ... more

Most Realtors are honest. You would have to look hard to find one that is not and that has been in business for a long time, so find one with experience and you likely have found a good one.

Fred Glick answered:
Not good at all, but don't worry.

Rates change every day and they have remained very low and should remain that way for awhile.

Once you get your agreement of sale finalized, check with a few companies to see what they can offer you. But, make sure through your real estate agent that the condo is financeable.

If they are not sure, you can contact me and I can find out. That is very important. Not all condos can get mortgages.

Also, you may need an FHA mortgage based on what you want to buy. FHA is very specific about which condos they approve.

Feel free to contact me to go over your details when you are ready.

Dear pool_88,

Most Coops require anywhere from 10%-25% down payment the amount varies from building to building. You will need to apprx. the following, down payment (amount based on the purchase price), 3% of the purchase price for closing closts and apprx. 3-6 months of maintenance in savings after you purchase.

Another option you may want to consider is FHA approved Condos, where you can put as little as 3.5% down payment. You should consider meeting with a mortgage professioal to get preapproved, this will provide a guide for you in terms of how much you can afford to buy.

If you are not working with a buyers agent, please consider doing so, you do not pay a fee unless otherwise agreed to.

Good luck.
