Did you quit claim deed in lieu to the bank? It is better to ask from a lender so that they have to do the due diligence for you to get a loan.

Hi Jvalk03,

Repairs don't have to be done if they are found in the inspection. However some of them maybe required to be fixed by the lender if they are called out during the appraisal. It all depends on the lender and their under writer. The home inspection is for your peace of mind and gives you the knowledge to make an sound purchase. If there are repairs in the report that you feel need to be fixed, you can have your agent request for them to be repaired.

Good Luck!

That home was listed for $132,100 on July 9, went pending on July 28th and sold for $130,000 on Oct 16th with an FHA loan with Seller concessions.

If you thought is was worth $145K, then you could have put in an offer for that amount and found out if your offer was accepted. If you had a cash offer, then it would have sold for that amount if yours was the accepted offer.

If you had a loan, then there would have been an appraisal done to find find out the actual property value. If the property value was lower than your offer, you would send the Listing Agent an Addendum with the adjusted price. If you were below the Appraised Value, then you would leave your offer as is, and continue with the close.

Heidi, not sure why this question wasn't answered but it is possible to buy a rental. Some lenders are a bit stricter than others when it comes down to owning rental property but if you have a healthy down payment and good reserves it should not be a problem.

Did you have a deposit on the first home that is non-refundable? Do you feel that you would need to explain why there is a credit inquiry on your record?

Contact a local Realtor. I am sure they will be able to help. Someone on Trulia Voices in the area may be willing to help as well.

Good luck,
