After seeing the responses from realtors in this thread, that makes up my mind. I'll do without. ANYBODY can take a class or 2, It's not difficult as they try to make you believe. And yes, anybody can do it. Money hungry sharks... ... more

Lenders don't care why you made late payments... merely THAT you've made late payments.

A history of late payments (and that's what your credit score represents) is an indication as to how you treat your obligations to those you've borrowed from.

That being said... while your scores are low, they're not horribly low. Some lender should be willing to lend to you, assuming that your scores are the only issue. There are other issues that lenders look at. Amount of open credit, credit-to-debt-ratio, age of credit history.

Shop around... if the lender tells you NO... don't make excuses... ask them "why", and listen carefully.

Good luck.

The answer to your question is in the description, "hybrid community where you own your home and lease the land." It looks like the land lease payment is part of the community fee.
Hope this helps! ... more

Rreading answered:
Seems to me varies by state and both potential buyer/seller should have a discussion with agents to clarify and get in writing per email. That is, what happens if contract says one thing and agent says another via email. May not happen with earnest money but I just had it happen with some other issues on a recent sale in terms of what my (buyer's) agent was saying with regards to my buyer and his situation. Being anxious for the sale, he misrepresented the buyer's situation... ... more

Why not use English ? I think it means there is a lawsuit which means foreclosure. You will need to look at the house to find posted information on that house. Good Luck eh?

Tjaman2002,

I do not see a date set for an auction. The last recorded document was an assignment of mortgage back on March 20th of this year. A local firm received a certificate of title from a foreclosure by the HOA back in September. That firm put the unit on the market at $199,000 on June 13th and within a couple days it was under contract in what appears to be a solid sale.

The market in Riverwalk is red hot as buyers continue to act quickly on lower priced opportunities in the Jupiter market. Only 2 active listings as of this morning which represents a 19 DAY inventory level based on 12 month sales. Anything priced and marketed properly will sell in days if not hours.

Both buyers and sellers in today's market need to be well informed and make educate decisions. Mistakes in real estate are expensive and we don't like seeing anyone make them.

Kayjay,

Georgia Dream offers to combine a soft-second mortgage of up to $7,500 to Georgia First Time Home Buyers when they obtain the first mortgage through GA Dream. The first mortgage under this scenario involving down payment assistance is an FHA Mortgage. So no, there is no requirement that the borrower put down 20% in order to obtain $5,000.

Here are a few other things to consider. You may be buying in Dekalb County. There are other easier programs available in Dekalb through participating lenders. But if you still want to stay with Georgia Dream Down Payment Assistance, you should know that employees in some disciplines can get up to $7,500, even $15,000 for a limited time,

There are other things to be considered and I'd welcome the opportunity to speak. Please call when time permits.

Good luck.
