My girlfriend, soon to be wife and I are looking to buy a house.The house will go in her name as my credit is horrible. We have two children together, and have been together for well over 15 years (not going anywhere). We are holding off on marrige until this house thing goes through. She is a first time buyer,770 credit score, ownes a small business in the mortuary field, and works part-time asa CDL Driver. We started the Business from the ground up and it's now in it's third year and growing fast. What is the best route for us to purchase a home? We were thinking of gettingsomething at around $10,000 - $25,000, and then getting a loan to fix it up how we would like it. Ending up with a mortgage at around maybe $60,000 - $65,000. Is that a good Idea that is workable given the current market? What would you do in our case? What's our best avenue?January 27 2012 - Cleveland00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
