Hi Eringreen63,

As long as you have the income and your credit improves (negative affect of the short sale), you should be able to purchase again in 2-3 years.

I just completed a study in this area for all homes in Northwood. The data shows a decline of around 4% from the prior year and a 17% increase from the prior 4 to 6 months. When compared with last year, I'd say your market area is stable and there will be no reason to make a time adjustment. 3% to 4% change in prices is typical. Now if you are comparing your new appraisal with your current one, look at the appraisal and the comps to see which appraiser used the best, most recent comps and go with that. Hope this helps. ... more

As for purchasing now, your attorney can best answer your question--after bankruptcy discharge much will depend on your credit, finances, etc.

It all depends, but someone needing Owner Financing in this market probably does not have good credit.

Look for at least 10% down, charge a minimum of 1% over conventional (Best) rates so around 5.5% right now, and spenf the $500 for a Real estate Lawyer to put together the contract for you. ... more

The stimulus is over ! Your best bet is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for. There may be some state programs with donw payment assistance they may have access to depending on your credit.

Please see my blog for info and advice on getting a mortgage.

Kary Krismer answered:
No. The money is not available at the time of purchase. That's part of what I like about the tax credit. It replenishes peoples' bank accounts rather than giving them the money necessary to buy. ... more

You appear to have an enforceable contract if you can document delivery of the original signed counter offer back to the seller or listing agent within prescribed time frame. If the seller persists in denying their obligation to sell to you you should hire an attorney. ... more

not difficult at all, regardless how it is paid, the tax must be paid before the sale.
