Step #1 = Go See A Loan Officer And Ask Questions. Check a couple including your current bank since they know you. See what you can borrow and afford. Then get a Realtor to show you what is in your price range. That's how to start. ... more

Poorly, just ask AIG. All kidding aside, mortgage insurance protects the lender from default by the borrower. It offers no protection to the consumer.

It's never hopeless. Visit a lender of your choice and let them tell you what you have to do. Work a plan and stick with it. Before you know it you will have your dream of homeownership.

Good luck.

more than likely no. You would either need cash or possibly the owner may help you with financing.

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
No problem.........

You go about purchasing a home the very same way any salaried person sit down and speak with a mortgage rep - they will let you know if you qualify for a loan, and how much of a loan.

. As a self-employed individual, you will have to show 2 yrs. tax returns, and the average of the 2 yrs will be used to qualify you. Of course, your credit scores will also play into the final qualification, as well and your current debt.

I hope you declare (on your taxes) what you earn!

If you have busiuness deductions (like agents do) , know that your net income, following those deductions, will be used, not your gross.

Best wishes..............speak to a loan officer and then you'll know where you stand

Hi it depends on the type of loan you had before and are applying for now. The FHA allows buyers to re-enter the market quicker then Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac do. Speak to a loan officer to see what you will qualify for.

Dan Tabit answered:
Hard money loans have no rules, guidelines or standards other than state law. A hard money lender is also called and equity lender, their goal is to be in such a good position on the loan that if you default, they can scoop up your property, sell it quickly and get their funds back plus the equity you put down. Now this may not be true of all hard money lenders, but I would tread very carefully.
Why is your credit bad? With $100k cash, could you take some time, pay off old bad debts and re-establish some good credit so you could qualify for a conventional loan?

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
Yes, you can get a hard lender to give you a loan. It will be at a higher interest rate but comes with no pre-payment penalties. In a year you can refinance to a normal conventional loan and lower your rates easily since you will have lots of equity built in.

If you are considering purchasing around the Disney/Kissimmee/Davenport area I would love to work with you.
