203K can be used for foreclosures since the property is being sold AS-IS and the work needed to the property is being financed by the mortgage company under the 203K loan. It is not a simple process, but if it fits you it can really build some equity in the home by doing the needed renovations. I would suggest getting in touch with a lender that deals with 203K on a regular basis. I deal with a company that knows them well. You should work on your credit and familiarize yourself with the process of the 203K. Feel free to contact me for the 203K mortgage officer's info. My email is ... more

You can purchase a home after a short sale if you meet two qualifications. Did you pay your last mortgage up until the time of the closing? Did you relocate in order to find employment? I closed a short sale last year where the buyer I was representing answered yes to both questions. They got a conventional mortgage. I might add that in spite of the short sale they had good credit scores and a large down payment, but did end up getting a $350k mortgage. Their short sale was 1 year earlier.

Good luck.

Robert Weiss answered:
You can start the Re-finance process as soon the deed and existing mortgage have been recorded.

I sugguest you contact a reputable lender to confirm the costs and determine if it is cost effective to do so. However, if you have renovated or made other significant improvements that have improved your equity there may be a good solid reason to re-finance so as to eradicate PMI for example.

Good Luck.

Sorry, no one can do this.

You'll need a lot of time between the BK and applying for a mortgage.

Good luck.

Hello So.rental.

I have a lender with 2 options for 10% down on jumbos.
$417,000 conventional and a second mortgage to 90%
or a 80/10/10 with a jumbo first and then 10% second. If you are buying in the $525k range I would suggest the first option.

Recently, we haven't seen or heard of any disagreements on appraised values. During the real estate boom it happen often. But now since real estate professionals and loan officers aren't allowed to communicate with appraiser anymore and that lenders are keeping a watchful eye on values and fraud, disagreements on values are rare.
