Go speak to a lender, or two. Asking here will never get you a 100% reliable answer. The lender will have to decide based on what they find out about you and your credit, debts, job history, etc. A co-signer with poor credit is not much of a co-signer, but maybe it is doable.

While finding an investor for that situation may be a bit challenging, there are plenty of homeowners with single-family dwellings willing to rent out their homes or lease them to families like yours.

If owning a home is your ultimate goal, you could see if there is a homeowner willing to work with you on a "rent to own" contract.
I hope this is helpful.

If you are asking about pelham,i know the school system in pelham is one of the best.Secondly,the house price may be so low because the house may have been on the market for a longer time,the sellers may be very motivated to sell and therefore just want to get it done with,or the house may not be in the best condition compared to other houses in the neighborhood.
About radon,only a home inspection can surely confirm that and either way if you like a house its always best to have inspection done so you are aware of what you are getting.

Closing costs can be negotiated in a contract. FHA will allow the seller to pay up to 6% of the sales price towards closing costs. Your first step should be getting in touch with a mortgage company/bank to get qualified. They will give you a good faith estimate outlining your closing costs. Secondly, get a realtor to help you locate a suitable home. Remember the first time homebuyers tax credit requires you to have a contract in place by the end of April and closed by the end of June. You may qualify for $8,000 in tax credits but you need to act quickly. ... more
