Shelley,

I recommend that you speak with someone at HUD directly. You can use this link:

Contact any lender of your choice first. Get pre approved so you know where you stand. Then call one of us.

Guy Gimenez answered:
I presume you mean your mortgage broker, not your real estate broker. If so, you won't likely be able to switch lenders and still get the loan approved by the end of the year. Tf you're sure your current lender will not be able to complete the loan under any circumstances, then you'll just need to find a new lender and start the process over. ... more

WE can assist you, however this home is sold already.

Good properties at this price are rare but occasionally we do see some like this.

http://www.metroplexhomesalesinfo.com/listings/propertytype/SINGLE/maxprice/50000/areas/23611/sort/price+asc/

Remember in most situations most lenders will not lend less than $50,000, so for investment purposes with 20%-25% down you would need to look at properties that will sell in the $60-$70,000 range. This is for buy and hold. For flips you can use hard money loans with different requirements.

Let us know what we can do to assist you.

Blake Harrison answered:
The $80-100K price range in Dallas is definately possible and achievable for buyers. Our Metroplex are is quite large. I personally have several listings in that range. Consider North Oak Cliff - 5-10 minutes from downtown, the Oak Lawn/Uptown condo market, and some areas within 2-3 miles of Highland Park. South of LBJ Freeway (635) and North of Northwest Hwy, along the major streets of Marsh Lane and Webbs Chapel are some other pocket areas to consider. Carrollton is another suburb North of Dallas along I-35 E that might appeal to you. ... more

Personally I wouldn't want a haunted house, but if I were wanting to close in February I'd start the loan approval process now followed closely behind by the house hunting process with a dedicated agent.

Good luck!

Depends on your goals. Are you wanting to get out of it pretty quick or actually make some money? Also, it depends on if the fixes will actually cause an increase in value to your property. ... more
