I dont want to come off as rude but if you do not know this basic information, why are you buying the biggest purchase of your life without an agent/professional? A realtor for you costs you NOTHING and seller pays 6% (3% to each agent). You are doing yourself a disservice not having an agent. You should now at least think of retaining a real estate attorney to help guide you and protect your interests. There is so much involved with buying a house you need someone to keep you on course and make sure you are not being taken advantage of.

If the property is bank owned and is listed for sale they will be the ones to decide which method of payment they will/will not accept. If it is sold at Sheriff's sale then in PA it is 10% at the time of sale and the rest within 20 days. It is impossible to find financing on a house that appraiser can't go into and have it this quick. I was able to have it done but property was only 3 yo and I had 50% down. So it only required drive by appraisal, BUT I also have super mortgage person and it was over 10 yo. I doubt you can pull it now. ... more

NO you will need a rehab or construction loan. Most lenders also want to see that you have the money for repairs or require the repair money put into an escrow account.

You just need proof of 2 years income in the same line of work. Gaps must be documented. The lender is looking for stable predictable income for 2 years in the same line of work. We provide FHA/VA loans all the way down to a 580 fico. As a licensed real estate broker and mortgage broker over 10 years i can answer any questions you have throughout the process.

Hello,
Your lender will give you a good faith estimate which will give you a good idea of what closing costs will be. They are required to give this to you.

Leslie Arouh answered:
It is the same answer i gave Esperanza a moment ago. The market is going through many changes. The private money lending sector is growing faster than any part of the real Estate Market in the past 18 months. The smartest way to keep your price within reason is getting a private loan to start with and 6-12 months later after paying your loan on time you will be ready for a public market loan from a multitude of lenders. They will be seeking you out and at rates between 5% and 8%. you must babysit your loan because they take no ones excuses or problems.Mark my words...you will be thanking me a year from now when you are
