You can if you had your Realtor include an Inspection Contingency:
This would allow flexibility to re-negotiate or walk away.
Otherwise; you are bound by the term of your Purchase Agreement. ... more

Hi Sr,

Whether or not you can terminate would really depend on the specifics written into your contract. In most cases there is a time frame attached to the inspection period. If this is in your contract and you are within your time period you should be able to terminate for any mechanical, structural or engineer deficiencies found within the scope of your inspection and receive your deposit back.

There are specifics to every contract/situation. You would really need to consult with your agent and/or attorney. So sorry there isn't a better answer. If I can help in any other way please feel free to reach out to me.

No comparison between Bristol and West Hartford.
West Hartford was named #5 in the country for great places to live.
I would definitely choose West Hartford.

Hello Guiseppe,

To accurately give the APR for any loan product, I would need some additional information. Feel free to email me at lynne.oliveri@guaranteedrate.com and I can go voer this in more detail. I would not need any of your personal information, just information on loan size, taxes, area you are buying in, so I can estimate some of the fees associated with a CHFA loan.

A good place to start would be to talk with your bank or a mortgage loan officer. Most banks want a credit score of at least 620-640. There are also different types of loans or programs that you might quaify for. Some offer 100% financing and low down payments. If you would like a referral or have any questions, feel free to email or call me.

Good Luck,

Make sure you understand exactly what it is you're asking for..most consumers don't understand the possible pitfalls of a "rent with the option to buy" situation.

These agreements usually favor the seller, and you could lose your deposit if you do not buy the home..and that menas if you do not qualify for a mortgage or just change you'r mind about buying.

make sure an attorney advises you

Amanda Albert answered:
I always recommend that my clients make an offer that will create a win - win situation in which both parties will be happy. Low balling is a tactic that makes the buyer and the agent look bad and gives Agents a bad reputation.

I am not sure what you are trying to do here. I hope you will explain a little more.

Jessica Tracy answered:
Matt & Laura,

I would be careful of any rent to own properties. Most of the time they ask for a large down payment for you to rent out the property and if you are unable to buy it, then it is forfeited.

There are some homes that are listed for rent by Realtors with the option to purchase. But, you would need to go through a credit and background check to be approved.

I would talk with a mortgage broker to see how bad your credit is and to see how you can improve it.

I would be happy to reccomend a broker or to answer any other questions that you might have.

Lisa Orme answered:
Unfortunately with a foreclosure on your credit record, you probably won't be able to get approved for another mortgage for several years. Almost any alternative to foreclosure including short sales or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure is better for your credit rating than foreclosure itself, which can affect your ability to get a mortgage for at least 5-7 years in most instances. Take this time to get back on your feet financially and re-build your credit profile. Paying off debts, saving up a very healthy downpayment, and paying your current bills consistently on time will be essential. In the meantime, I expect you will have to rent, unless you have family or friends who can help...Good luck Rima...I hope things get better for you quickly! ... more

Maria Cipollone answered:
It is imperative that you shop around for a mortgage broker that can explore all your finance status and review your credit report. He/she can advice you in the right direction, in case that you need to do so or give you that pre approval letter that you are looking for right away. Is always a good idea to check your credit report and have time to repair errors that can appear in that document.

Best of Luck,
