I have other ideas that will get you possibily in a home soon. Give me a call so we can discuss your matter. You do have some options. Usually a lender wont talk to you until 2-7 years after bankruptcy but that depends on factors of bankruptcy. Call me anytime at 816-863-7797. ... more

First time buyer does not mean you have never bought a house in your life. I really hate the term First Time Buyer because it really makes you think you must never have bought a house before. What it means is that you have not purchased a house in the last few years. You just need to speak with a lender or mortgage broker and explain the situation, you can call them and ask that. ... more

You will need to go to the courthouse to get a list of the homes that will be in the tax auction. The homes are posted at the courthouse prior to sale. You will need to register as a bidder on the day of the sale. You will be on the courthouse steps. You will need to pay cash for any home you win the bid on. Just a heads up. Winning the bid does not guarantee that the home will be awarded to you for the sale price. You will appear before a judge to determine if the value will remain the same. Do your homework before going to the auction. Or attend an auction to see how it works. ... more

When you say Bad Credit Applicants, most landlords and/or property managers & leasing agents will want to know 'How Bad?' The first step to qualifying a prospective tenant is checking not only their credit score/s but their current & past rental & job history -- What's their total monthly NET income? How long have they worked for their current company? How long have they lived in their current rental? Have they ever been evicted? What is their current status & history with the Utility Companies? An applicant's answers to these are critical to whether any Landlord (investment property owner) is willing to rent their property...I'm a KC residential sales/realtor/agent who highly recommends prospective Tenants and Landlords/Investors to South KC-based property manager, MATT KINCAID - he's the owner/CEO of KPM- Kincaid Property Management, LLC office ph: 913-575-8355. ... more

It seems to me you are going to have to pay something, either in points or closing costs or both. I do not know anyone who is offering money and/or loans for free anymore, especially for condos when they are higher risk and may not qualify for owner occupanats to get normal conventional financing because of too many investor-owners. Good luck. ... more

I would recommend you speak to a lender that is willing to counsel you on what you need to do. many credit problems can be remedied. If you have poor credit it may take a while but if youstay focused and look to the prize, you can overcome the problem. If you would like a recommendation please feel free to email me.

Dale Weir answered:
Unfortunantly, you are in a bad situation along with many many other people. There are a few mortgage lenders who aren't doing appraisals but they they typically run it through a logarithm program to come up with a "value" for the home, but in general, the bank is required to make sure that they aren't loaning more money on the home then it's worth, since it becomes the collateral for the loan. As a result, when they do a refi and the appraisal is much lower than the loan, they require the home owner to bring the difference to the table before they will refi it, even if the amount of the loan stays the same.

I would talk to a HUD counselor in your area. They will know if there are any programs in your area that might help you

Connie Covert answered:
I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Connie J Covert, Realtor with Century21 All Pro. I have a small property management company I've just started up. I have 3 yrs experience in the field. The others I worked with were very disorganized, couldn't get work to be done on time, issues with utilities for inspections, etc.

I feel I'm very organized to do this work. I'm a full time Realtor, so I'm always in "the game"! My rate is somewhat cheaper than competitors! My 7.5% includes:

All paperwork flow, rents collected, crew ready for work, and showings-inspections as needed.

If you are interested in me, please give me a call.
Thank you for your time and interest,

Connie J Covert

Dear Brandy,

There are companies that can help you get your credit score up and you only pay them once they have accomplished that task. Please call me and I will be glad to refer you to someone that can help so you can purchase a home (since the interest rates are at an all time low). Will you be buying by yourself or is your future husband going to be on the new home loan as well? Does he have a better credit score than you or are you wanting to buy without him on the loan? I will be glad to refer you to a company that can assist you in your search. Please feel free to call me.
