Your best course of action may be to visit other builders and evaluate their offerings. Armed with this information, you will be in a good position to present your case.
Builders DO NOT like to lose a buyer to another company and will often look for ways to influence your decision and bring you into their community.
A real estate professional's involvement will likely be able to improve your likelyhood of getting a better deal.
So, invest some time, collect the facts, involve your own agent, and negotiate.....but negotiate from the standpoint of trying to determine the company with the best product, reputation, and value.
Rent to own is where you move into a home as a tenant with the intention to eventually own the home.
You would pay rent plus a few extra dollars every month that would be applied towards a downpayment. At a later point in time you would proceed with getting financing and take over ownership of the home.
Owner financing is when you buy a home without a lending institution.
You would give the owner say 10 or 20% down (or whatever you negotiate with them) and pay them the balance over time.
With owner financing you actually own the home immediately.

The first thing you need to do is call your mortgage company and start communicating with them. Explain your hardship and see if they will work with you to do a modification. That means they may lower your interest rate and put everything you are behind back into the morgage.
The second option is to sell your house as a short sale. Feel free to call me and I can explain further.

Buying a home in January, it will depend on the interest rates available then. If you'd consider buying a home/town home now, I can tell you that interest rates do vary depending upon your debt to income ratio, credit, and lending guidelines for your loan. A HUD home can be purchased right now for $100 down. The federal government has issued an $8,000 homebuyer tax credit for qualifying homebuyers. There are all kinds of great programs out there right now coupled with low interest rates. Why wait until January?
For a $70,000 home, if you go conventional at a 6% interest rate and put down less than 20%, add homeowner taxes, add homeowners insurance, your looking at a number close to $600-700 a month total.
However, it will depend on the tax rate for the city you choose, average across the metroplex ranges from 2-3%. It also depends on how much you put down, and your credit, and the loan program you go with.
As a Realtor, I can help you find just the right house and acquire it. A lender can help you with the lending. I have found that a lot of people like Katie with CMC Lending, she specializes in First Time Homebuyers and programs available, as well as buyers buying a new build home. Her website is: www.

Email me and let me know what types of homes you would like!
If there needs to be any repairs, the seller(usually a bank) do not want to make any repairs.
I have seen some instances that they were done.
You need a good realtor with an eye for the things that VA will want repaired.
Let me know if you need a referral to a good realtor over there.
And please feel free to follow up with more specific questions!!

A Letter of Guaranteed Funds, or other acceptable proof of funds, will need to be added to the contract. The sellers will need to agree to accept a cash offer. Call your agent immediately so that they can get this done.... more
