  When can a borrower get  home loan again after a Distress Sale? A lot of people ask me this question. I turned to one of my expert lenders for the answer.   A Distress sale is defined as one of the following Foreclosure ,Deed in Lieu, Short Sale & Bankruptcy     The three types of loans I asked the lender about were FHA, Fannie Mae (aka Homepath)  or VA. Conventional Loans were not addressed.   A borrower can obtain a loan after  Foreclosure : FHA-3 years from date of completion Fannie Mae -years   VA- 3 years from date of discharge/completion   A borrower can obtain a home loan after Deed in Lieu:   FHA-3 years from date of completion Fannie Mae-2 years VA-3 years from date of discharge/completion   A borrower can obtain a home loan after a Short Sale: FHA-3 years from date of comple...

"Option Pending" in Texas is the unrestricted right to terminate the contract for any reason ! This is the time period the buyer has a home inspection and negotiates any repairs. This is usually 7-10 days or whatever the buyer and seller negotiate. There is a nominal fee for this option. The "Pending Continuing to Show" is continue to show the home even though there is an executed contract.  The seller would like to continue to show for a "Back Up Offer" in case the first buyer does not close. Have a great day!

There is a Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program for FHA 203K Loans in Wylie TX.     Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). Existing home owners or potential home buyers can remodel and update their homes without having a higher cost second lien because of this FHA loan program.         The loan program does not allow for “luxury items” which are defined as items like a swimming pool or hot tub, etc. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.         This loan program has many advant...

  Below is a great article from the  Texas Association of REALTORS®. It caught my interest because we recently ran into a situation where we allowed a tenant to have a pet she said was a mix,  well it was a pit mix! It has been causing fear among the other tenants in the area and is not being locked up properly !  Question: A prospective tenant wants to lease a property that I manage, but he owns a pit bull. May I refuse to lease to the tenant, who is otherwise qualified? If I do lease the property to him, what type of precautions should I take? The article says this : A landlord may refuse to lease properties to those who own animals (unless the tenant qualifies to have a service animal under the Fair Housing Act), or who own certain types of animals (for example, pit bulls). The landl...
