Margaret Deavours answered:
Jackie, I think you are going to have to wait for your credit score to improve to about a 620 to 640 which may take a while. In order to qualify for a short sale, you likely were behind on payments so you will need to establish new credit showing you pay on time and give this time to fall off your report. ... more

Fonda Lester -REALTOR answered:
You are pretty close to getting a rural housing loan which is 620. Have you had a lender look at it and see if there is something that you could do to get it up some? There actually is a lender here in Jackson that does lending as low as 580 if you fit their criteria. Shoot me an email.
I'll help you figure out what lender to try.

So many factors come into play for credit scores.

If you owe more than 50% on any credit card reduce those balance(s) and your credit score should increase

Phil Rotondo answered:
If you are the only person making the offer, ask your real estate agent to provide you with recent comparable sales in the area of the home. This information, along with the condition of the property and your agent's advice, will allow you to present a "good offer" that you will be happy with.
If you are in a multiple offer situation, you may have to offer your highest and best offer for the property.
In either event, you can have the contract contingent on an appraisal of the property.

Tony McMahon answered:
It means that it is under contract and the there are items such as inspections and financing that have to be done and approved. there are time frames for each to be accomplished . If contingency's aren't met it can be grounds for the contract to be voided. Contingency's are used to allow buyers and sellers and banks to protect their interests. ... more

Fonda Lester -REALTOR answered:
Sorry that you are having trouble. It appears that you do not need a lease to own but maybe an owner financed home.
Typically on a Lease to Own, you are required to put a sizable amount of money down, then at the end of a year you have the option to purchase the house with part of your rent as down payment. The trouble with this consept is that if you can't qualify for a loan (you are saying that your credit is not great) you forfeit all your accumulated down payment plus the original deposit money. In that case, you would have been better off to just rent something.

You could find someone who owns a house and will owner finance it for some money down and actually give you a deed with a deed of trust lein on it. I actually know some of these in south Jackson.

The best solution really is to find a program like NACA or some lenders who will help you make a plan to get your credit in order for purchasing. That way, you can actually have a choice of a house which you love and want to live in... and not just take whatever house someone will work with you on.

Good Luck!

Beverly Hoge answered:
I have some great ideas for you as far as investment property in the Jackson, MS area. We are having our own share of difficulties here but perhaps not as bad as some other areas in the country. Jackson is a great place to live with lots of med students and law students in the area that are here to complete their educations. Rentals or small condos are what most of them are looking for. The Northeast area of Jackson is the area that they are most interested in as it is near their respective schools and the University Hospital. You would have no trouble renting your investment property as long as it looks good and is priced right. Please feel free to check out my website at for more local information and for my contact info. I will be happy to help youany way that I can. ... more
