Overseas contractor (DoS employee) trying to buy first home in Florida, FHA loan / occpuancy?Overseas contractor (DoS employee) trying to buy first home in Florida, FHA loan / occpuancy?I am an overseas contractor working in Iraq, trying to buy first home in Florida. My contract is for a year, however this company was awarded the 5 year contract total. Looking to buy first home in Florida, got pre-approved prior to deployment. Now I am running into problems with regards to occupancy. I have R and R every 4 months or so, a month at a time in duration. I am single and not married. Want to buy this house so when I get back it will be mostly (if not all) paid for. Need to go FHA route since I do not have enough credit for conventional loan. This was also a reason to buy a house, make steady payments and build more credit. I have good credit, just not enough of it. Silly me, I never acquired a lot of credit cards or debt. I am trying to get loan through Wells Fargo, since that is where my money is (close to $50k which alone is a third of this house). Will this be possible? I am working with one mortgage guy but want to do some research on my own, so it's not all on him. I would like to be informed. I had found the house and put an offer in, but now there seems to be problems...December 13 2011 - Tampa11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
