You'll need to look at the comps in your area. This will determine market value.

Sounds great, if you are not living in all three units, the lender may be qualifying your file as an investment file and not an owner occupy. The Down Payment sounds in line with the norm.

Best of Luck

It's kinda tough these days getting in an apartment without good or ok credit, however it can be done it just may take more looking around than usual and perhaps you will need to visit them in person before filling out the application to explain your situation to them and perhaps that will help them build some trust in you and not pay so much attention to your credit. Good luck to you and I wish you the best! ... more

The HOA is the villan, but you chose to replace your Agent?
(And people wonder why I am not high on HOA's!)
You can blame the high HOA fee, and you can blame your Agent; but it would be a sure-fire bet that you are asking too much for the Condo; or it would have sold. ... more

Yes, you will still have to provide them with an appraisal of the down payment home but you can use more than one home to secure the note on another home.

Trulia has a great, "rental page" at the top, second from the left. If that does not have what you are looking for the daily oklahoman is the next best bet.

UB Home Team answered:
There are some Lenders still doing 580 FHA loans. Most require 620 as a minimum. If memory serves me right, they take the average of both scores. The guidelines change often, and a new change will be impacting mortgage insurance (MIP) on April 1 AND, lasting the life of the loan, (no longer falls off at 78% LTV). If you would like a short list of local Lenders, better suited to answer your question (OKC area), please contact us through our profile. We promise not to blow-up your phone or email, and will ask the Lender contacts to respect the same!

Best of luck in the home search!

Yes, Both Rock Knoll and Lansbrook are great communities. Rock Knoll has updated the pool cabana and Lansbrook has a beautiful lake with 33 acres of greenbelts, pool, parks, and trails.

These areas are hidden gems right here in the city...

Hello here are several options for you. First go to my website: http://www.billhaydenrealty.com/ Click on the "View Listings" scroll to pages 61 to 88. There are several homes for lease listed here. When you find one in the location, price, and photo you like then key on the "View Listings". This will give you all of the details for this property. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and the person to contact is listed here.

Okay, Leasing Companies I work with who can help you on rental properties in OKC, Edmond, NW OKC, Guthrie, etc. what we call the Oklahoma City Metro Area. I suggest you send them an e-mail. I've provided you with their websites, e-mails, phone numbers, and contacts. If you would tell them I sent you...I get a finder's fee.

Josh Barnett answered:
Some Protective Measures:
1. Check county records to ensure the person offering the owner finance is the owner of record.
2. Check the County's "Lis Pendens" notices to ensure that the owner is not under water.
3. Make sure you have a solid contract that spells out what amount of payments go to what.

You should always seek the help of a professional, i.e. an Attorney or Realtor.

Best of Luck,

Josh Barnett, Realtor

Hi Solomon,

I work with several lenders and they say no. You must contract the work to licensed contractors.
I wish I had better news for you.

Here are a couple lender's I recommend. They are both really nice and welcome questions, so I'd give them a call and see what they can tell you. If they don't allow it, they might know someone who would.

David Carson, WestStar Pacific Mortgage - 715-3100

Matt Brown, 1st State Bank - 778-6500

Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

You might really consider getting the contractor and designer in who will be doing the work. The contractor can tell you if the upstairs is sturdy enough to hold a bath, etc. How many floors do you want to ascend to bed versus the kids? ... more
