Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Yes. First of all you can always buy a home with cash. Second, if you are seeking a mortgage, underwriting standards will require a two year waiting period, but after that you will once again be able to qualify for a loan, provided you can meet all the other requirements. Bankruptcy is not the end, it is a new beginning. ... more

Javier Meneses answered:
First thing is to identify the grants available to any particular buyer. This is a bit difficult because not all grants are known to all real estate professionals, so they're even less known to buyers. Still, it's best for buyers to ask their Realtor(s), Loan Officers and even attorneys in addition to doing their own research on which grants, if any, are available to them.

Each grant has their own requirements, and process for how buyers can apply. Most of these grants are designated for first time home-buyers who intend on purchasing a primary residence, and fall under a certain income bracket or specific townships or counties. Grants often come contingencies, mainly requiring that home-buyers live in the homes for a specific time frame, or the grants then become fully or partially payable back to the organization(s) who issued the grants.

Well, I'll answer your question in a Brooklyn-centric manner, since it appears that's where you're from. While condo home owners' associations are the norm in places like Florida, in NY there is the condo board and the offering plan, which lays down the rules and functioning of the building for the most part. New ideas or rules are voted on. So don't worry, you'll be fine in NYC with no home owners association-- there's a condo board and if you want, you can usually find a place on it.

Want an agent who rebates you 10% of the commission at closing? That's me. For example, on a $500,000 property with 2.5% to my co., that's a $1,250 rebate.

Tim Moore answered:
A lawyer will be involved at some point, so split the cake. You can get a Realtor to help find a house to make an offer on and then they will guide you the rest of the way. NY has a lawyer review law of some sort which sounds bizarre to the rest of the country since we don't have such a thing. ... more

USDA loans can provide 100% financing, and so can VA loans (for prior military). Also, sometimes local (smaller) banks will provide "shelf" programs that allow residents who bank with them special deals on 100% loans. ... more
