I think it would be next to impossible to find a mortgage company set up to accept debit cards payments. They usually want checks or direct bank payments

Honest Americans are discriminated against and are the true minority. The rules were made to favor the bankers and politicians.

When the bank puts the screws to us, its "just business, nothing personal". When we take advantage of using the system and walk away or short sale, the banks says "What about your morals and intergrity and the fact that you made a deal, honor it." Then it calls the whitehouse and gets reimbursed more than it "lost". Great deal right? She is a slave to the banker like most of us.

I would advise her to walk, doi a short sale, wait the 2 years or find an owner financing property in the meantime, there out there. Break the chains that bind her enjoyment of life.

Leo Santos answered:
The answer to your question depends on who is holding the escrow. Is it a title company, attorney or a real estate company?
Because title companies are not regulated by FREC, it is much easier to get your deposit monies returned.
Notwithstanding who's holding escrow, I would consult a real estate attorney and have them send a letter to the owner demanding a release of for the deposit be signed and threatning legal action.
This may be all it takes for them to take you serious.
Best of luck!

Hello Jorge,

Your closing costs can range between 2-3% of the purchase price. I have too little information to go by to give you a better picture. if you have already have a property in mind you should already get pre approved by a lender.

If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Usually when financing a property, all you need is a pre-qualified letter and proof of funds.
You would probably have to talk to your lending bank and see what options they offer.
If you can buy an all cash property, it has a lot of advantages:
-You have no interest rates
-You own it free and clear.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions,

Good luck,

Ann Ryan answered:

The price of land varies too extensively in Dade County for this to be useful to you. What part of the county do you really want to live in? As a general rule of thumb, land will be most expensive near the beach and Doral, and least expensive down near Florida City/the Redlands.

First, your land has to be payoff. Contact lender like Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo.

Alma Kee answered:
We have a First Time Homebuyer Bond Program that can give you up to $7,500 to be used towards your downpayment and closing costs. You must have a 620 FICO and the house has to be in good functional condition to be able to get a regular FHA, USDA, VA or Conventional Mortgage. You cannot earn more than about $71k for a single persona household and you must work with an APPROVED lender on the list, go here:

Your county may also have other downpayment assistance programs, google your county name and "first time homebuyer".

All the best,
Alma Kee

Mack McCoy answered:
Hmmm. As a Certified International Property Specialist, I can tell you that you are going to pay a premium for financing. The rates you see plastered around are for US citizens and permanent residents with two years at the job and a US credit score in the sevens. Roughly.

I do know a good national lender, email me if you like for more information.
