If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.

    i hear you path...this is so convoluted and really i think it's all just to confuse all of us LOL!!

    again, from what you are saying i will have to wait 23k years. i'm not buying that. if i come up with 1/2 down and have a DMI of 6k zero debt or just a little to make it look good, have assets, savings to even secure the loan, i think i can find a lender no matter what. WAIT!!! i shouldn't say that...not today but the time will come when the banks want to unload all their inventory and of course this time you don't want to purchase more than what you can handle forever anyway. not all loans need to be FHA...we only had one and we owned altogether 5 homes.(not at the same time).

        trust me it's not. there are many ways around the system. again i have only had ONE FHA....which if you have enough money, it talks and helps you walk.

        and remember i purchased a house with 100% owner financing after my bk....with NO problem. again not the norm because apparently i am always on the other side of that sliding scale. i guess along with everyone else that lives in nj where the banks are not foreclosing very quickly. that's why i have had to become quite creative with how i proceed. we are looking to purchase another place within the next 1-2 years for certain. one can even secure their own loan

                  Our home sold at sheriff sale in february, out of our name in july 2012. This is a usda guaranteed loan, we should know within a month, have had a snag regarding title search (property survey issue). Anyway broker says they cannot dock you for both foreclosure and bk. He says his underwriters use bk as timeline, that foreclosure time does not matter umless you foreclosed seperately and did not wrap home in bk. I know we have all heard this isn't possible, I am keeping my fingers crossed hoping for a miracle. I am still skeptical after the financial disapointments we have had the last several years.

                      No there has been no rule changes as far as I know. I have done some research and it appears most of this talk originated from one particular mortgage blog and was picked up and reported by many other blogs and forums. I have reached out to that blog owner several times to get any more information however my emails have all went unanswered.

                          Discovered during title search discovered that seller misrepresented acreage (this is a long story in itself, lol!), so had to have property re-appraised, wrote new offer, that finally should get back to underwriting this week. Broker thought we would close at end of November, but this title/acreage issue has held us up 2 weeks! At this point it will be a miracle if we close this month!
