Typically yes you can. There are always circumstances that may prohibit this such as disrepair of the property. It may not be eligible due to it's condition. I would strongly advise that you seek approval for financing before you buy the house so you will know what "road blocks" you may come up against when attempting to mortgage it later. I would imagine finding out you can not access money to repair a property after you bought it would be a pretty bad thing. Good Luck ... more

I am sure there are homes out there that could and could not pass inspection. Generally it would depend if they were a foreclosure or short sale and had violations preventing them from passing inspection. My group has a home for $15000 in great condition!! ... more

That is a tough question without more information. The privacy, the amount of living space, parking and the neighborhood all have a direct impact on what someone would be willing to pay. I would be happy to help you further, with finding a reasonable value, however more information is truly necessary. ... more

First things first. You need to contact a lender and start the prequalification process. They will look at income, credit score, debts, etc. Since you're talking about buying a property as an investment, you'll need to put at least 20% down. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
The way you word that; you make think you were contemplating one of those "services" that charges $1500 to repair your credit for you. Correct?

In that case, you just saved $1500!

If you contact a reputable Mortgage Broker or Loan Officer; you will either get a loan, or be told what you need to do to qualify soon, or both.

Good luck and may God bless

The irony of the whole thing is that I used to be very judgmental of disabled people. I would wonder why a disabled person would buy brand new furniture when used furniture should be ok. I am allowed to buy furniture but apparently not a house which would be more practical. Oh well if nobody wants to sell me a house what ever. I'll go ahead and waste the tax payer money like the other disabled people do. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
This process has two separate time components, one you control the other you don't. The part you don't control is the timeframe from when an offer is accepted until it closes. In most cases this portion lasts 30 to 60 days depending on your lender, inspections appraisers etc. So you can subtract this from your target date.
The part you control is the time you need to see the available homes in the market, become aware of what is out there, refine your parameters to your budget and reality and to find the right home. Some buyers see 3 homes and pick the second one. Others see 30 homes and still can't decide.
Since you have several months, I would encourage you to learn all you can about the process of purchasing and financing early. You can take some time to seek out the best professionals to help you and view some listings online or at a open houses. Gaining market knowledge will help you become a better informed and more confident buyer.

Speak to a mortgage rep to see if you'd qualify for a new loan in addition to your current loan.....and how much, if any, of the potential rent would be credited to you.

Tim Moore answered:
#2 and #3 are timing issues and perhaps the fact you are making offers too low and hoping to steal something in a warm or hot market. Those might not be the Realtors fault. In 5 weeks the Realtor has not brought up one home to show you, that sounds weird. As I show homes I get to know what someone is looking for, but some people are all harder to read than others. I had one couple that just liked everything and anything was ok with them so if I brought up 100 homes they wanted to see them all. That can get overwhelming. You guys might be too much the opposite, I am not sure.

You can always have a heart to heart or ask for another agent in the office to work with you. How experienced is your agent? Experience is the #1 in my book and without it you have a learning in progress agent.

Ron Thomas answered:
You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!
