A good area to buy should be dictated by your personal preferences, financials, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc.; therefore if unfamiliar with the area, take the time and visit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors, look at anything that is important to you, etc., then make your determination as to where your comfort level can best be reached.... ... more

The credit will help you, but what will ultimately determine the down payment is the property you're buying. The banks have a ratio for loan to value (LTV) That they will use to determine how much you and the property qualify for. ... more

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Check with local realty offices, or work with an agent; check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money; word of mouth, etc.

Check with your local building's department for any applicable permits beforehand; thereafter contact a few local licensed contractors for free estimates.

Sally Grenier answered:
You really should find a local Realtor who can get this information for you. Just because it's listed on Trulia doesn't mean it's for sale. A local realtor will have access to the MLS information system and can see if it's listed, what it's listed for and pull any other properties you may want to see. If you need the name of someone in your area let me know! ... more

Right now on MLSLI, there are 45 listings for 2 family homes listed for $260,000 and under in various areas of Brooklyn. Most of the properties are either short sales, foreclosures and/or in very poor condition. Many of them will require cash deals and are in need of code violation removal. I would be pleased to assist you if you would provide me with more information about your goals and your current financial situation.

If you are referring to a specific property--you may wish to ask your question again and attach a link or give an address so that the question can be answered accordingly--however, it may be in your best interest to work with an agent who can help you with all related information, showings, property availabilty/status, etc. Contact any realty office(s) and inquire. ... more

Hi Cherise,

I am a potential buyer who first found out about NACA 3 years ago from a friend who had a friend that had used the program. It is not a scam, it is a program that has made a positive name for itself. I immediately worked to get qualified with NACA but haven't bought a house because I simply have not found anything that I like. I have been in contract for 3 properties with NACA as my mortgage financing but the deals fell through for one reason or another.

The thing with NACA is that it takes a lot of time and patience to get all the paperwork you need to get qualified. And you have to live within a budget. Additionally there is alot of turnover there and the workers get swamped with mortgage applicants and modification requests....like I said i've been dealing withthem for 3 years!

You are also limited by NACA on how much you can spend for a house. The amount depends on how many units. Check the website for info www.naca.com


I'm still psuedo looking for a house witht he intent on using NACA. While it can be a huge headache sometimes, I think the benfit of no down payment, no closing cost, and no PMI are well worth it. Good luk!

It depends on how bad the credit is. How is you income? And why is your credit so bad?
