I know that my sister was able to. I would talk to your bank or mortage broker to see what would be best for you, either a lower rate or if paying less pmi. If you would like a mortgage referral I would be happy to give you some. Also, if you have any questions about buying your new home or would like a tour, I would be happy to assist.

I can be reached at 860-368-8383.

You need to be at 75% LTV for a 2 - 4 unit investment property for conforming financing. You may be able to find someone doing it as portfolio in your area, but you would need to investigate that. You won't find what you are looking for with traditional conventional financing and obviously FHA is out of it's non-owner occupied. ... more

Interest rates are at all time values at all time lows....and you can afford to buy...

A couple of thoughts, you might purchase a less expensive home...there are a lot of nice ones out there below $400,000....The alternative is rent, which provides no positives for you. You might try playing with a rent vs buy calculator ( to help with your decision.

For me personally, I prefer to own my own home...aside from the be tax benefits, I like building equity in a property that's mine, and I can do with what I please.

Hope this helps! Good luck with your search...don't let PMI be the deciting factor

Interest rates will be based on the type of loan you qualify for, keep in mind that they do change daily and sometimes more than once....

at that rate, it may not be worth the cost to refinance if you are not planning on staying there for a long time. Your savings will be wiped out by the cost of teh refinance

Jumbos have a whole set of new rules these days. I just got approval for a doctor and it took me 3 months and had to pass the watchful eyes of 2 underwritters. I doubt you will find one offering 80-10-10. Check with Wells Fargo, if anyone can help they can. If they say no, it's very unlikely anyone else can do it either. ... more

Vincent Carrieri answered:
Just because you qualify for a higher mortgage amount does not mean that you should buy a house that you can not afford comfortably. Pre approvals do not take into concideration real life things like child support, or utilites on the home exc... Please keep in mind that this is a payment that your stuck with for 30 years. Instead of thinking in terms of what you qualify for, think in terms of what payment you are comfortable with. If you approach things this way your sure to be buying within your means and almost guarentee an approval when your ready. ... more

You would have to get a loan secured before you put in an offer. The bank requires a cashiers check as a deposit. Foreclosures are very risky. You have to make sure all their taxes have been paid, that there are no liens on the property, it is very important to have a clean title. I would definitely consult a good attorney. If you need any referrals give me a call Seth Winkleman 860-985-5816 I work with a lot of bank-owned properties! ... more

Ive never seen an auction allow a mortgage contingency. So if you lose your financing, you lose your deposit also. Usually there is a sizable minimum. I wouldnt recommend going this route. Cash is best for auctions. ... more

I never answered from what I can see any questions you have posted. I would recommend finding a great agent and have them put you on Listingbook. A great tool that reflects the MLS in real time. The only website that gives accurate info and status of listings. They can reveiw your activity and send you notes on properties you do view or save as favorites. You can also send them notes from the listing.

Good luck and thank you for getting back to those who answered. It's rare we find out how much our answers are helpful.

Christopher Lefebvre answered:
I would suggest that you shop around and keep all of your options open. A mortgage broker usually has access to many more programs compared to one individual bank. That doesn't mean that a local bank won't have a good deal for you. Shop around, compare rates, but also pay attention to loan terms and closing costs. Make sure that you are comparing apples to apples. ... more

Louwu answered:
No. Pure stated income loans are illegal in the US. Per Frank Dodd, you need to be able to provide proof of some sort of your ability to repay the loan.

HOWEVER, they have VOEs which essentially are pretty darn close to stated income. Lender just verifies with the employer that the employee works there...Thin line.

You will need to work with Wells Fargo if they still hold the loan. You may find that two years payment history is required and a full appraisal. Good Luck
