I would always be leary of the online calculators no matter what site they are on. There are so many variables in what your payment will be. It depends on loan type, amount down, credit score, taxes on the property, age of the property (for insurance), and more. I have a couple good lenders that I think have really competitive rates and costs. Would you like a recommendation? Call or text me at 5053010694. I'm Matt Templeton with Re/Max Alliance. ... more

Mei Cheng answered:
Unfortunately, bank these days are very tight in lending. I suggest you work with a credit repair company to move up the score and started saving for the downpayment. In the meantime, you can try to find properties with owner financing. In this case, you'll need decent downpayment and pay a higher interest rate for a short few years while you build up your credit. ... more

Mary Padilla answered:
HI Pat,
The bank generally has a "dated" bid period where they allow all bids to come in from "owner -occupancy buyers" first. They use that 3 weeks or so to collect and review all of those bids. If they are not happy with any of them, they won't select one and they will extend the time frame for accepting bids. If yours expired and the property is still listed, that could be exactly what happened. They don't take the highest bidder. They weigh it all out, the type of loan, whether it's cash, and any other factor that the buyer might be asking for. You can always bid again.

Best regards,
Mary Padilla

Hi Regina,

It depends on which side of the river you're interested in. On the westside of the river, 2000-2500 sqft homes are going for $217,000 - $345,000. On the eastside of the river, homes are going for $329,000 - $665,000.

Step #1 = go speak to a lender to ask questions and find out if and how much you can borrow. Its free and there is no credit check.

Dear Buyer,
Unfortunately you can find poor quality in all parts of town, and the opposite is just as true. The best way to avoid this is to have a thorough home inspection done and do your homework on the builder and the the builders reputation. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

It is theoretically possible to find you something. The best place to start might be to consult with a broker about your personal situation and your goals.

There's nothing that I contribute the change to. I've been selling as before. I would attribute the improvement to an influx of cash and rising incomes and savings.

Joel Sanchez answered:
Hello D. F. Haas,

It is a question that has been asked of me many times. In my experience, those who have gone down a similar path and aggressively attempt to repair their credit have been able to qualify for a new loan in as little as 2-3 years. Your situation sounds hopeful. Being that I am not a licensed lender, I can not give you an accurate picture of the ever changing requirements in our current lending environment. The best thing you can do is to contact a lender and have them give you some insight on your financial status and ability to qualify for a new loan. It sounds like you have a sturdy foundation now. Running your credit again to apply for a loan should not damage your credit score.

If you do not have a lender in mind, I always recommend Stephen Cecco at Castle and Cooke Mortgage. You can reach him at 505-453-6543. Best of luck and I look forward to you having a prosperous future.

you can contact me at,
