Hi, They all pretty much run the same kind of credit check, but depending on what kind of bank you
talk to they may be more or less willing to give you the mortgage amount you need at a different interest. So your very best decision would be to contact several, and potentially, connect with a few
mortgage BROKERS who can find you the right lender for your particular situation and needs.
If you do not know any mortgage brokers, let me know and I could recommend a few to you, and it is
always wise to contact a few to see what they can do for you.

All depends on your general financial situation, your debts like car payments and other your income
and what it is that you want to buy..... and please remember that there is a big difference between a pre-qualification letter and a pre-approval....

Any questions feel free to contact me....for recommendations of lenders and a Realtor to represent you....
Good Luck!

Plain and simple it's a gamble. No one knows exactly how long your short sale will take to close. There are lots of variables. I have worked on several short sales, and have not had one close in under 90 days. You should expect that you won't get the credit, or be pleasantly surprised if you do.

Or... you might look for another property. Talk to your agent for guidance.

Good Luck!

You're going to need to know how you're going to pay for whatever you buy. I never go into a drug store without a payment form in mind; it's the same thing in house hunting. Get your loan lined up - then house hunt according to your budget ... more
