Frank A Jakob answered:
That depends on many factors:
1. What type of construction?
2.What geo area of country?
3.What season?
4.How many occupants?
5.What is heated square footage?
6.What type of utilities::heat pump, electric strip heaters, window air conditioners,gas, water heater, etc. etc.

Probably best to ask the owner who has lived there for more than one year.

I would not think that you would have a problem relocating or renting the property as intent is one factor that needs to be considered. If you are looking to buy another home when you relocate the underwriter will likly want to document what you are doing with the current property and plan on qualifying for the current payment and the new payment. You may wish to check with your current lender about allowing someone to assume your loan. FHA does permit credit and income assumptions. I would assume that you have a good rate on your mortgage and it might be attractive for a buyer of the home. Because it is an assumption they would not need a down payment and closing costs would be lower than a straight purchase. It could be a WIN/WIN. Explore the assumption option unless you want to be a landlord. ... more

Is it on a permanent foundation? If not, you cannot get a mortgage loan for it. It's difficult to find money for a mobile home if it does not have a permanent foundation. If it does, it's considered a "home" and standard rules apply to financing. ... more

Too many unknowns for an accurate answer....was the bankruptcy discharged, current credit score, etc., therefore for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

Yes, since you recently graduated and have obtained a job as an RN, you can use your job & it's income to qualify. There is a guideline that requires 2-years of employment, but recently graduating school (other than high school) is one of the exceptions that can substitute for that requirement. Loan programs would be any that you qualify for - and with excellent credit scores you probably will want to utilize standard conforming loan programs (Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac), which nearly all mortgage lenders offer.

90%ltv - 417k on the first, 10% down and then a 2nd interest only!
About 3.625% on the first if not better and around 5.5% i/o on the second.
This will help to avoid any PMI

What you need to do is to speak with a Lender/Loan Officer. There as some programs for First Time Buyers, however those programs do have Income Limits. Talking with a Lender/Loan Officer that knows the Strongville area would be the best thing for you to do.

With that said, my offices are in Parma Heights. Just a stones throw from Strongsville. Check my profile page and call me if you want.

Key Bank offers a portfolio loan with zero down. There are requirements for the loan just like any other loan but that is an option. Are you working with a realtor? If not a buyerâ™s agent is a free service to you! Make sure you interview a few agents that specialize with buyers, condo's and know the various loan programs and options. Good Luck! ... more

Hi Michelle,

I'm not aware of any that are not credit score based anymore. However we have lenders that will go down to a 560 credit score. If that fits with your situation give me a call.

Jeff Paeltz answered:
Hi GCP2000,

I would like to bring a buyer to your home. Just a few questions if I may.

What is the address?, How much are you asking for your home?, Are you willing to take back a mortgage? are there any current outstanding liens &/or mortgages on the property? Would you be willing to do a land contract, lease/option. Is the home currently vacant? If not is it rented or are you still living there and if still living there what time frame were you thinking as to giving possession of the home to a buyer?

I know..lots of questions, but these are what a buyer is going to ask me so I need to know before hand. Thanks!

That will be a tough one, I have had a few clients find lending through quicken loans online and have seen them lend as low as 35k however if I were you I would attempt to go through your bank that might be willing to help out just to keep you happy. Sadly the trueth of the matter is many lending offices wouldn't waste their time for the simple fact they pay check would be small. If you need any more help feel free to contact me directly I'll see what I can come up with to better assist you.
