They are wanting you to say if you will or will not occupy the home as your PRIMARY residence
They are asking you if you are or are not related to the previous owner
They are saying you can not be a supplier of services to Freddie Mac to purchase the home

Also Freddie Mac employees immediate family members are ineligble to purchase these homes.
and a non-resident minor child or dependent for whom the employee has responsibility.)

Also I believe that you need to be represented by a real estate agent to purchase this home, so if you dont have one, I would be happy to help!

Good Luck,

Hello Orla-most sellers want the buyer to show "proof of funds" if you are making a cash offer. If you have documentation showing you will be receiving the money and make your offer subject to having the money on or by a specific date it's possible a seller may work with you. However you will need an earnest money deposit if your offer is accepted. ... more

I've been to one HUD seninar recently, and I'm going again this week; There is just too much information.
HUD is the BIG MOMMA; over Freddie Mac and Fammie Mae.

From my notes; Your Agent did everything right and advised you right:
You get one shot and everything good is going for at or more than LISTING PRICE.
The problem is; if you go too much over LISTING PRICE, your Appraisal will not cover the $$.
At $5000 over, the other bid may have this problem, and you will have another chance at this house.
You just cannot fall in love with one house until you get it; and others will come along.

You cannot blame your Agent for what happened; he did an excellent job and you've got to believe in him.

They do the Appraisals fairly quickly and you will know about it, maybe this week.
If this other deal falls thru, I would bid the same; and say a prayer.
I would have him looking for other houses.

Good luck and may God bless
