It always does on the weekend or holidays. The HUD office is closed and unable to accept bids. Your agent will know tomorrow if you we're the highest bidder.

Teresa one thing that I would like to add is that the property has to be available under the GNND program. Not all HUD homes are in fact in our area there are very few. You need to get in touch with a registered HUD Realtor® in your area. If you need help in finding one let me know. ... more

Hi Usha,

The short answer is yes, I can assist you with locating, screening potential problems, researching to make sure your not paying too much, help with paper work and contracts and negotiating. I do not charge any fees, my commissin is paid from the seller. But first you need to get qualified for a loan. Until you know how much you can qualify for you wont know how much home you can afford.

Give me a call at 614.288.0423 or send me an email at and lets get started today. Buying a home is an exciting time and I can help to reduce the worries and concerns that you have with buying your first home.

The answer to your question isn't as cut and dry as that. While there are several great builders in the area, there are many things to look at with regard to "the best builders" . Since not every builder is providing the same product as the next it is important to have a good realtor to help you navigate the many builders and find the one that best fits your current needs.

PLease feel free to contact me for assistance in locating the builder that best suits your needs.

That is true, you will have to wait 3 years to buy. You could rent an apartment or a house, but that will not be easy either with a bad credit rating.

Donna R Jackson answered:
Typically Fannie Mae reviews all of the offers and could potentially counter all of the offers. If your offer was submitted before the deadline it should be reviewed along with the other offers. Keep in mind even a full price offer may not win you the bid. Another offer could have come in for a little bit more or possibly didn't have as many contingencies as your offers. Good luck. ... more

Lauren Swieterman answered:

First you need a agent whom is experienced in lease option/purchase deals and I would be more than happy to help

In regards to this property, a lease term of # years, 1, 2, 3, whatever seller is entertaining, a % or small amount up front in down payment, your 1st months rent and security deposit etc... Once lease is up perform a purchase with % of ALL rent accumulated PLUS the money up front to apply to purchase price

This in negotiating is where you need a detailed agent to present figures to seller. Make sure it makes sense, a lot of owner or unrepresented sellers will ask for terms that doesnt make sense for buyer in the end, or not apply any rent which is essentially the whole goal in this creative source of financing. Have you reached out to a lender to see how long your financial situation would take to mend , ?

Email me or call I would be able to help further

Good luck hope this helps!

You do not have to be college aged. It is an FHA loan program that allows a person to co-borrow w/a blood relative who helps qualify for a loan using their assests &/or income. Both borrowers take title & one has to live in the property as their primary residence.
I belive this loan got it's name because many parents would ny a condo for their college aged kids while thay attened school and not have to finance the property as an investment with higher down payments & interest rates.

Open houses have never worked to sell homes. Only about 2% of homes actually sell from an open house.

more info:
The sellers agent was acting like she was a saint for "being willing to give up her night to help move her sellers out". We pointed out that she wouldn't have had to do that if her sellers had moved out when they were supposed to, and this wasn't our fault, and we asked why she told our agent they were all moved out if they weren't. Then she got upset and started telling us that it's not her job to make sure they're out, and that this isn't her responsibility. She tried to pin the blame on us for not having called the sellers to make sure they were out! We pointed out there had been other issues with the contract (the inaccurate disclosure, the fact that the sellers disconnected their utilities 2 days before possession when the contract stated that utilities were to stay in their name until the day of possession, etc) and she was just impossible to reason with. Rather than accept any responsibility, she insulted us repeatedly. At the end of the night she tried to act all sweet and nice and told us to contact her if we ever have any issues, but this was just ridiculous! When we tried to ask her for an apology for the insult early in the night -- pointing out that it was unprofessional -- she insulted us again!

Expecting that the house would be a reasonable level of clean (e.g. not trash and possessions everywhere, food stuck to the fridge, etc) isn't too much to ask, is it?

We were most put off by how unprofessionally she acted and would like to register a complaint but we're not sure what, if anything, we can do. Any advice?

Frank Swiatek answered:
Your first step will be to meet with a lender so that we can get a baseline for where your credit is at, and why it is there. From there its possible that an experienced lender will be able to help you restore your credit over time and if more help is needed, we can get it. There is no quick fix to credit repair, depending on where you are at it could be just a few months, sometimes a year or two, it really depends on why its poor and how quickly the derogatory items can be paid off. Give me a call or shoot me an email and we can discuss further, I'll introduce you to a couple good lenders and we can see what is possible. ... more
