First of all; thanks for Serving.
I hope you don't have a Disability; but if you do, it will be another benefit for you.
They threw us a curve; adding a FUNDING FEE to the Loan. This is about 2.3% (check me on that), and can be folded into the loan, if you don't have it.
That raises the effective Interest Rate; but there is no way around it, unless you are disabeled.
But with NO DOWN and the other factors, it is still a good deal.
You need to go in to your local VA office and apply for your ELIGIBILITY, (if you already haven't).
They can also advise you in many ways; take advantage of them, they're there to help.
You might contact the NAVY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, for the Loan; they service all branches if you weren't good enough for the Navy :)

Good luck luck and may God bless

You might be able to use the account for a down payment but not likely that you'll get a loan.

Hi Jocelyn, the market is very active right now, for homes which are priced correctly. As far as prices, they are not recovering...much. Certain areas have seen prices creep back up, but not to anywhere near the pre-crash levels. If you are looking to buy, it's still the right time. For sellers, homes are moving, but still at prices that may disappoint them! ... more

You may want to consider looking on April, but you'll need to be prepared to sign lease commitment at that time. You'll need to be prepared with a security deposit and first months rent as well. ... more

A partition sale or lawsuit is a pretty complicated matter. I think you should seek legal representation if you haven't done so already.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
In my opinion, yes. Nothing is more likely to derail a short sale or foreclosure purchase than having anyone on the 'team' that does mot understand the process. These purchases can take a long time, they require more paperwork, and if you and your realtor are not prepared for that it can be frustrating and confusing. Last week, during Hurricane Sandy's aftermath, I met a short sale client twice in a parking lot to get paperwork signed, once we had a notary public in tow. Then the buyers' realtor and I arranged to meet, twice, to get signatures from everyone on their side. Unless you have someone who both understands such demands by the bank are not unusual and are willing to comply with those demands cheerfully these transactions can go bad quickly; My advice is to find someone with either the SFR and/or CDPE designations indicating they are the training and experience you need. ... more

Generally I would recommend my finance guy, Bob Wilson, 216-373-7450, anytime, but loans under $40k are hard to find these days (I guess they are not profitable or something)....closing costs can be paid for by the seller if you write the contract that way and the seller accepts....Make sure you have a realtor representing you. ... more

An FHA loan has nothing to do with being a Veteran:
What you should be concerned about is a VA loan.
The VA picks-and-chooses the eligibity of the Veterans for their loans; maybe serving now will qualify you, and maybe not. It is the same with Medals, and Medical Benefits.
All those who served in Vietnam are now qualified, but there have been a bunch of skip periods since then.
What you can do, to get ready, it to join the Navy Federal Credit Union; you will probably see info about it, when you get to your duty station.
You can also look into the GI Bill for education, and you can take ASAFI courses while you are in.

You are taking an honorable step toward one of the greatest fraternities in America; being a Veteran, and you should be proud.
The BENEFITS will come; just concentrate on one day at time right now.
Thanks for Serving

I can not speak to where the lawsuit is for 2222 Detroit, Stonebridge Tower, other than it is still going on. I can say that the 1237 Washington, Stonebridge Plaza is a different type of construction. There have been recent sales in Plaza in which the buyers have obtained home inspections of the units and those inspections have not lead to any concerns about the building or quality of construction. Sales have been good in the building and the buyers seem to be very happy. ... more

Tim Moore answered:
A good suggestion would be to assume that HOA fees will NEVER go down. Most never do, that is because they pay for things like taxes, insurance, maintenance and things like that where the fees also never go down. The only way they are likely to go down is if a service or amenity is removed from what they fee pays. ... more
