If it can be taxed and documented for at least 2 years then that's a good start. What's your scenario?

I could refer you to some local lenders who have some creative loans, but not sure they offer those exact scenarios, but it can't hurt to reach out to them.

Give Jon Okun a call. He is a loan officer with Prosperity Mortgage, a joint venture of Long & Foster Real Estate and Wells Fargo -- I understand you had a deplorable experience with WF, but Jon provides exceptional service, explains all options and the process, and really stays on top of things to make sure there are no surprises. I used him for my own refi and have referred him to many clients who have been exceedingly pleased with his services.

Most of the Lenders want to see a track-record as a landlord. they want you have been a landlord for a year or more;
that is the only problem I can see.

Good luck and may God bless

Sorry but you can't, the US loans are Government secured and the Government is not going to lend to a non-US Citizen. You can get financing in your country & convert that money over to US Dollars then you can purchase for CASH over here providing that you provide proof of funds. Good Luck with your search! ... more

Clint- you should refinance right now, and specifically this weekend.

You don't have to pay PMI if you have less than 20% equity, the better option is lender paid mortgage insurance. This is where the lender pays a 1-time premium to cover your mortgage insurance at settlement. This can be built into your rate. With 5.75% you can save significant money going to near-current rates and even look at a no-cost refinance where all of your 1-time closing costs are covered.

Rates are at the lowest point for 2011, the importance of making a move this weekend is that the US debt downgrade announced last night will very likely make mortgage rates go higher Monday morning.

I am working all weekend and would be happy to go over numbers with you. Feel free to contact me 301-585-7283.

We lend in DC and have the FHA 203K program. Other ones as well. I suggest contacting me to discuss further in detail. This isn't a yes or no question, I need some more information. One question is are you in an FHA loan now? I just can't say yes or no at this point.
