The best thing we could do would be to connect you with a great lender that understands credit, credit restoration etc really well and make a plan for you to be a buyer as soon as possible.

You are OK with the time frame for some programs, hence back to the first paragraph.

Lets have a sit down discussion with the right lender and plan for your future!

To be sure all parties involved fully understand & acknowledge what the occupancy of the property will be once the loan is funded.

It will be disclosed on the form where you are signing.
On FannieMae owned properties the Buyer usually commits to occupy the property for at least a year after the date of occupancy, unless extenuating circumstances arise.

Let me know if I can help you with any other questions,

Hi Matt,

Scorpions, like all insects and animals, follow the food. I've never heard of your particular question. The general advice is as follows. Scorpions love to eat crickets and other small insects. If you keep the cricket population down, scorpions won't find you all that attractive. My suggestion would be to let a few lizards make a homestead on your yard (they eat crickets) and you won't see many scorpions. ... more

What property are you referring to? Are you referring to a property that you're under contract on? You should have your buyer's agent contact the listing agent and see if the sellers are interested in selling their furniture. If you're asking about some other listing, then you should try conctacting the listing agent. Good luck! ... more

Hello Mooresvillenancy. When you see a listing that has specific verbiage in the comments such as what you mentioned, it typically means that those specific items do not convey with the sale of the home.
Most of the time, a 'fixture' is an item that is 'attached' to the home, and when you purchase the home, those fixtures 'convey' or transfer to you, the new owner.

Occassionally, an owner will want to take some of their fixtures with them when they move, such as ceiling fans, built-in speakers, light fixtures/chandeliers, etc. This is acceptable so long as the new buyer agrees to those terms in writing, up-front when the contract is signed by both parties. It's critical to have all of those things addressed during the 'negotiation' period so they don't become issues later just before closing.

Hope that helps! Happy House Hunting!

I am not sure what you are referring to. Do you mean a section 8 certificate?

Short sale in your past should not impact your ability to get a Section 8 cert. Your credit will certainly be impacted.

Good Luck!

More than likely the house has shifted. That means it has moved from its original position. It could be from an earthquake, the ground settling, or rot on the bottom or a foundation failing. ... more
