Are you working with a buyers agent? They can share that kind of information with you. If you don't have a buyers agent you should because the on-site agent works for the seller/builder to get them the best terms and price possible. A buyers agent can help you determine if the price they are asking is worth it for the product they are offering. Feel free to contact me here through Trullia for more information on the builder and the neighborhood if you are not currently working with a buyers agent. ... more

Good question, mster. It means the property has gone under contract with a contingency (ie: home inspection, for example). If the contingency is exercised, the buyer is released from the contract and the house will reappear on the market, so it may be available to you yet, you'll just need to watch for it to reappear. Though I don't want to give you any false hope, the chances are just as good that the contract will go to close and the property will not become available again. Best of luck in your home search... ... more

Your first step is to go to your local nonprofit housing group. Make an appointment to meet with their credit counselor. The counselor will pull a credit report (the same one a bank would receive) and go over it with you. If their is anything you should be doing that would improve your score do it. There is a difference in your rate if your score is on the lower side.
After you have gotten your score as high as you can (since your FICO score shows what your willingness to pay your bills are), conult with a mortgage officer.

Hi Rpeterson77,

FHA security instruments require a borrower to establish bona fide occupancy in a home as the borrower's principal residence within 60 days of signing the security instrument, with continued occupancy for at least one year.

So, the answer is yes, as long as you can meet ther requirements stated above and you have a job offer in NC or a stable source of income, like retirement or disability. If it is a new job, you must begin employment within 60 days of the loan closing.

Best wishes,

Age discrimination is illegal. Thus if everything else works out you can get a mortgage regardless of your age.
