Ruth and Perry Mistry answered:
Yes anyone can buy a home as long as they income, savings, and
credit. If you dont need a loan in the US it will be better, unless you have
been here 2 years, have income and established credit.

Also putting more than 50% down will help.

If you are relocating from Germany, have a Bank in Germany loan you money.

Good luck

Fred Amendola answered:
I believe if the home you buy is priced right in a good neighborhood for resale it makes sense. Given the short timeframe it has to be the right home/deal. They are out there but they go fast once listed so a diligent search with readiness to jump on the home when it is presented would be important.

It also makes a difference if you are able/willing to fix up a home a bit or want move in ready.

I charge $450.00 for my one bedrooms but, it does not include any utilities. I would say you could add another $200.00 for the second bedroom and utilities.

Bob Pfister answered:
A great question! I have had contracts answered by the bank in a matter of days. I have also submitted contracts that were either never answered, or a response was gotten only after a whole lot of pestering. Depending on the bank, for example a local bank or lender is typically very responsive. A large out of town bank, who may have thousands of properties in their foreclosure portfolio, it may take them a long time. The most important thing is to make sure that you, your agent, and the bank that owns the property maintain open communications through the whole process. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
The KEY, as I understand the clause;
is that the Offer Price will automatically escallate, determined by a competing Offer:

This sounds pretty slick, and underhanded, and, probably in most States, illegal!

The reason that it should be illegal is that competing bids are supposed to CONFIDENTIAL.
If someone is disclosing other offers, they would be in violation of the law.
In California, I am pretty sure that the offending Realtor would lose their license, I don't know about other States.

Gregorio Denny answered:
You should probably take the offer from the credit union. You won't qualify for anything with that score except an extremely slim chance you could get a FHA mortgage with 10% down. I say slim because that's pushing the bottom limits and not many people do these anyway. It also sounds like you may have some debt to income ratio issues so you can either take what you were offered or wait and build your credit and reduce your debt. ... more

Buddy,
Average sale price past 12 months is $133,830 with an average days on market of 96 days. This is ALL residential solds in the Greater Erie Board MLS sourced. Sale price of foreclosed properties would be on a case by case basis.

Hello SummerSun,

Yes and I have that program. FHA has one credit requirement.....that the score is above 500. It is the lenders that put additional overlays onto the credit requirements and not FHA. I have a lender down to 560 with 10% down. Theire rates aren't the greatest but they are OK.
