It always comes down to debt/income ratio, FICO score and tax returns. If you are going with a lease option, the rules are up to the owner that is financing you. I would suggest that you talk to a mortgage broker to find out EXACTLY what you are looking at. With a lease option, you will have a much bigger down payment(which may be forfietied if you do not complete the agreement) and a higher interest rate.
Call Toni Rocco at Alterra Home Loans. She can get you a plan and tell you what is possible.

The answer is yes you will have a certain amount of noise from traffic . The homes in Spanish Trails closest to Tropicana will hear traffic. There is a pretty large green belt in some of the locations that will help buffer the sound. I always try to use google maps to see if properties back up to high traffics areas before I show them to clients. There are homeowners that do not care about traffic noise. I have had clients tell me it just does not bother them. Thank You for the question.

I've been here since 76, raised two who are 23 and 26. My ex wife is Principal and my daughter is a match teacher...having said that...most of the teachers here come from UNLV so they all are pretty much the same. Coming from the mid west you will not be impressed with the education system here unless you are involved with their education and shcool. It's my belief, it's up to the parrent to make sure their kids are learning and what they're learning. Vegas is a great city but you have to be very active in your kids lives, education, spare time, etc. Lots of healthy things to do here. Call me if you want to discuss more.

Lisa, yes there are but I would strongly advise we do Owner Will Carry instead to make sure you don't loose your down payment if seller should go in foreclosure on COS. In a OWC, there is no risk of this becuase it's a traditional sale. Let me know how we can help you. We've been here since 1976. Matt and Kim. 702.501.0973 ... more

Hi lthiba,

I suggest that you contact your lender and discuss this matter with them. As far as I know, the lender dose check occupancy depending on the type of loan, and you defiantly want to notify the lender and ask them.

In some circumstances like health, job relocation or etc the lender might conciser exemptions.

I hope that it answer your question. Good luck!

Since it is a Trailer Estate and it is on Unit #2, it sounds like a trailer park where you pay rent for the lot.

Tina Lam answered:
In real estate, there's no normal that can apply to every transaction. You just have to work with your Realtor to figure out what works.

In a short sale, your purchase agreement is contingent up on the bank's approval. If the bank doesn't approve the sale, then there's no contract between you and the seller. In that case, there's no point in viewing the property until after the approval. You would only need to press to view the property if you actually are purchasing the property AS IS without any inspection contingencies. But, again, you don't know when the approval would come from the bank, if it does at all. ... more

You are bound by what is said and dates in the addendum and extension. Please speak to your realtor or his broker about your concerns and questions. If you break your agreement you could be sued by buyer for breech of contract.

James Bellile answered:

1st, if you had a foreclosure after your BK7 discharge (even though it was wrapped into the BK) you cannot qualify for a loan until 2 years from that date.

2nd, no you do not have to wait the full two years for an approval letter. A loan officer could give you a conditional approval months before you could actually qualify.
