Paying off collections would not lower your score, it would raise it. Closing an account may. You should have your loan officer go over it with you. Something else would have had to be reported as negative. ... more

Foreclosure put you out of mortgage qualification for 3yrs from the 'foreclosed' date.... not when it went into foreclosure... but when title actually changed hands.
What to do now? Make sure credit is perfect since this significant credit event.

Typically lenders require 625 + credit score , 3.5% down payment, closing costs , inspection , and appraisal fees, 2 years employment . Much more is consider than just a score

If you like to move can't afford all the requirements consider leasing

Talk with a loan officer in your area. There are many things that underwriters look at when evaluating a home buyer for a loan, and a loan officer will know what questions to ask you to get a better picture of your finances and ability to purchase a home. ... more

Hi Sandy
The home is still on the market with the owner. We would have to put in an offer to the owner and see if they are willing to accept our offer or negotiate. It has been on the market for 127 days and is listed at $39995.00 Please call me and we can put in an offer on the home for you. Do you plan on paying cash or do you need a lender for a loan?
Thank you
REMAX Trinity

Jeffrey Bradley answered:
It's never to early to start looking especially when considering neighborhoods, schools, shopping and entertainment. Looking now also gives you more insight to better understanding the pricing of a particular neighborhood. You should probably expect though to not go under contract until the August timeframe unless you find a seller that is willing to do a lease before close. Best of luck in your search. Please let me know if I can be of assistance. ... more

Paul and Colleen Tosello answered:
There is no "typical" involved with short sales. Variances can be different with each agent handling the listing, each lender who holds the lien and each type of loan. The one thing you do have to be prepared for is 3-6 months of wait time and even after waiting 3 - 6 months your offer may be (and will likely be) re-negotiated by the lender. The most successful short sale closings are onFHA or VA loans that have prices that have already been approved by the lender as acceptable. ... more

The very first step is to get your financing in place. Ask lots of questions. If the agent you have chosen can't answer the questions and explain the whole process very clearly then you have the wrong agent move on. ... more

Depends on your definition of cool. I'd say if you are single and have the cash. Any of the downtown condos or the condos in the West 7th area would be pretty cool. Other than that, anywhere in the cultural district. ... more
