s there any way I can talk you into taking advantage of what will probably be the best buyer's market we may ever see in our lifetimes?

The market is rapidly turning into a seller's market
Interest rates are WAY DOWN, but they are headed up

If you buy a home now:

* You will get more for your money - Rentals never stack up to homes you can buy for the same payment

* Tax Write-off - You can write off the interest you pay on your mortgage, you can't do that with rent

* Build Equity in the home - Each time you make a payment, you are that much closer to owning it!

* Gain Appreciation - Homes tend to go up in value... the home is worth more than you bought it for!

If you rent a home: You get nothing!

Absolutely, in fact I encourage all sellers to get pre-approved prior to selling their home so that they know what amount they can be qualified for on their next home.
I would be happy to pre-approve you when you are ready.

Check the local paper DAILY - Big Spring Herald. They do have an online version. Rent homes in Big Spring have been very scarce for years, and typically these owners do not advertise with any Brokers. ... more

Only a few weeks ago the answer would probably have been 'no'. However, just yesterday I heard from one lender who is once again able to do 90/10 loans, a first mortgage for 90% of the value and a second mortgage for the other 10%. Check around with several lenders and see what can be done. You might also want to check with local realtors to see if they now of such a product in your area. ... more

Paying cash is the way to go if you don't have good credit. I don't know of any lenders that will lend $25K on the purchase of a house. The amount is too low and the fees for doing the loan will be too high. I'm sure we'll have some lenders here that will explain that.

Would you like to know how close to a shopping center this property is located? You have a Kroger's and Food Town Shopping Centers in less than a mile from the house. Klein High School as well as intermediate and elementary schools are about the same distance on Louetta Rd and Highway 249 is about 7 minutes.

Let me know if you have any other questions...

Thank you and God Bless,

Working with an individual will work best for you. Explain your situation and you should be good, of course you must find the right house and owner that does understand. Rentals are not staying on the market so be sure you have the necessary funds available and are ready to move quickly. Typically you will need first months rent and your security deposit, if you have pets you need that deposit. Some landlords charge per pet some are flat rate. Best of luck to you. ... more

We are a Guaranteed Direct Lender for the USDA RDL Program. I just got an approval for a USDA loan where his credit score was 568 and in less than 30 days his score went up to 641. It is VERY important you work with an experienced Loan Officer with a track record of successes. Please don't put yourself in the hands of a rookie. We are licensed in Texas and I actually just relocated to the Lone Star State. Let us know if you need assistance.

Hi there,

This is a great question, however I'm sorry that it hasn't had any new answers. It might be because this question lends itself more to "Home Buying" than "Financing".

I'd recommend that you repost this question in this section:

Good luck with your search!

Jose Novelo answered:
You can buy and rent at 18, but you need to be approved by owner/property manager or Bank in case if purchase. If you want, I can help you to buy, payments are lower than rent and the benefits of Home Ownership can not compare to rent.
On the other hand it is never to early to start, but just make sure you mention to the owner/property manager your dates to move in.
Good Luck
