An old second mortgage (house foreclosed 8 years ago) is showing up in underwriting and they are asking for proof of settlement or forgiveness. Since I'm well past the Colorado statue of limitations on unsecured debt (6 years) and this isn't showing up on any of my credit reports (and hasn't in over a year), I'm not sure how to deal with this?

I did some research and found that currently, its a sellers market at Denver, CO (someone can correct me if I am wrong here).<br/><br/>Even then, I am planning to buy one as the rent in Denver keeps increasing every year and its quite a lot for a single bedroom. What would you advice a novice buyer (like me) to do? My main purpose of buying a house ASAP is just for investment purpose (I don't have any desire of owning a dream house or anything!! I just don't want my rent $$ &nbsp;to go to waste, rather I would invest it in a property for the future)<br/><br/>Also, if anyone can share some good advice on first steps in doing the right research in real estate, that would be great.<br/>&nbsp;<br/>Something about myself: Single, 27, Engineer<br \><br \>8 replies Wed, 02 Jul 2014 07:03:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Advice-on-buying-a-home-in-Denver-CO-at-beginning-of-2015/548121/ 2014-07-02T07:03:00Z DU Underwrite Findings Question http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/DU-Underwrite-Findings-Question/590232/ Can someone please tell me what does: " no determination of ratios and creditworthiness required" Mean?<br \><br \>4 replies Sun, 07 Jun 2015 18:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/DU-Underwrite-Findings-Question/590232/ 2015-06-07T18:22:00Z Do we have a chance to qualify? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Do-we-have-a-chance-to-qualify/591533/ Is there a good chance we can qualify for a mortgage under our circumstances?<br/><br/>I was unemployed for 1 1/2 years due to moving out of state and having a baby.<br/>Currently work in a new field, have been here for three months.<br/>Credit score is 712. &nbsp;Only debt is $168/month for a personal loan.<br/><br/>Boyfriend has worked in the cannabis industry (which I heard can be a problem) for a little over a year.<br/>Credit score is around 600, no debt.<br/>We make around $70,000/year combined.<br/><br/>His parents own the home we currently live in. &nbsp;They plan to sell it and give us the $50,000 (give or take) in equity for a down payment. &nbsp;<br/>We are first time home buyers. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Are our chances high enough to try to pursue and move forward, or will the length of employment, etc hinder this? &nbsp;<br/><br/>Sorry, i'm completely lost in this process. &nbsp;Thank you for your help!<br \><br \>8 replies Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:26:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Do-we-have-a-chance-to-qualify/591533/ 2015-06-16T15:26:00Z Searching for 80/10/10 for Colorado Home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Searching-for-80-10-10-for-Colorado-Home/596375/ Hello all!<br/><br/>First, thank you for taking the time to read. &nbsp;My wife and I will be moving to Denver, Colorado in approximately 1 month (a bit longer, I hope so we have time for everything!) I'm having difficulty figuring out who to ask/where to look for an 80/10/10 loan for Colorado. &nbsp;I've seen some folks here respond regarding the DC area, NY and VA. &nbsp;<br/><br/>&nbsp;We're looking at properties in the 400-450k range. &nbsp;We have nearly 100k in liquid assets but don't want to wipe out our entire savings, so we were hoping to find an 80/10/10 or something similar to avoid the PMI. &nbsp;Credit score is currently 825 (might take a slight hit because I just got lasik and took them up on a 0% financing over 2 years deal), Income is ~125k/year (More after she finds employment after we move, we're uprooting for me, isn't she great? :) ). &nbsp; We would like to use our current home as a rental (would generate circa 1300/mo with a mortgage payment of $850, currently have around 40% equity in that home). &nbsp;Single car payment of $300 and current DTI of 1-3% Hopefully we would qualify for what we're looking to do...but I don't want to throw out our info into Lending Tree or other 'organizations' where we'll get dozens of calls per day. &nbsp;I'd like to target reliable lenders who'll work with our situation. &nbsp;Any thoughts, fellow Zillowers?<br/><br/>Thank you again for your time!<br/><br/>~jon<br \><br \>7 replies Mon, 20 Jul 2015 03:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Searching-for-80-10-10-for-Colorado-Home/596375/ 2015-07-20T03:12:00Z does Zillow offer a flat fee listing on the mls? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/does-Zillow-offer-a-flat-fee-listing-on-the-mls/498667/ 9 replies Mon, 24 Jun 2013 00:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/does-Zillow-offer-a-flat-fee-listing-on-the-mls/498667/ 2013-06-24T00:44:00Z When buying a second home or a rental property - do you have to put 20% down if you finance it? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/When-buying-a-second-home-or-a-rental-property-do-you-have-to-put-20-down-if-you-finance-it/536226/ 8 replies Sun, 13 Apr 2014 05:33:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/When-buying-a-second-home-or-a-rental-property-do-you-have-to-put-20-down-if-you-finance-it/536226/ 2014-04-13T05:33:00Z listing says active but cannot find it on zillow.com http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/listing-says-active-but-cannot-find-it-on-zillow-com/595235/ HI, I posted a listing for a condo.&nbsp; the postlet says active.&nbsp;&nbsp; when I go to zillow.com, the posting does not appear.&nbsp; How long after a postlet says it is active before it will appear on zillow.com for potential tenants to view?<br/>Vickie<br/><br \><br \>1 reply Sun, 12 Jul 2015 13:26:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/listing-says-active-but-cannot-find-it-on-zillow-com/595235/ 2015-07-12T13:26:00Z Hi The property now is for sale in $269900 how can change the value and status ? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Hi-The-property-now-is-for-sale-in-269900-how-can-change-the-value-and-status/593525/ Address<br/>1520 Evans Ave. Denver Co. 80210&nbsp;<br/>&nbsp;<br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 30 Jun 2015 03:42:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Hi-The-property-now-is-for-sale-in-269900-how-can-change-the-value-and-status/593525/ 2015-06-30T03:42:00Z How do I Delete duplicate photos? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-Delete-duplicate-photos/593076/ 1 reply Fri, 26 Jun 2015 18:08:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-Delete-duplicate-photos/593076/ 2015-06-26T18:08:00Z FHA cash-out refinance and paying credit cards at closing. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/FHA-cash-out-refinance-and-paying-credit-cards-at-closing/533098/ I know that with a Fannie Mae loan, the monthly payment on a credit card debt that is paid off at closing must still be included in the DTI calculation.
