Hello AllMyGirls5:
To qualify for a loan, the lender will look at your credit score and your debts and your income. Is your house rented out in Utah? If so, that may off set your house payment - up to 75% of your rental income used to count towards your income. If thats still true, it will help a lot.
If your credit score is in the High 5's you may have to wait a little while to buy another house. Most lenders want a mid to upper 600 credit score. However, if you can put a large downpayment on the house, you may still qualify. I recently had a client come in at around 620 and he could get a loan, but had to put more money down, like 25% vs 3.5 to 5% down if he had a higher credit score. He is doing a few things to help increase/repair his credit score and will wait a few more months before he try's again. I recommend you find a local lender to give you advice. I can refer you to a good real estate agent from the Williston area if you would like. They will know the best lenders to talk to...let me know if you want a referral.

A lot of counties in North Dakota have tax records right online. The state also has a lot of tax records online. We are very open about property taxes. Many of us pay our property tax online as well. I will say that property taxes have gone up in Williston in the last several years due to the oil boom. Your not going to be paying a couple hundred dollars in property taxes any more like you use to. But is will not be like other states. ... more

We just listed 14 acres of land with a 1700 SF manufactured home on site. It is zoned residential too.
It will be a great place not far from the new by-pass. Call 701-739-1716.

Hello Brian,
Check out this link for past and current housing data in Williston, ND:

You may also wish to click on the "Local Info" tab at the top of this screen for additional information.

Even though the climate can be quite cold there during the winter months; I understand that North Dakota is doing very well economically due to the oil drilling on the western side of the state.

Hope this is helpful.
