The house was built in the 1820's and it most likely will need to be replaced... The house is 2600 square feet and the roof is estimated about $10000 of work.<br/><br/>Other issues...<br/>1. Roof replacement- $10000<br/>2. Updated electric- $2500<br/>3. Hot Water Heater- $500<br/>4. Windows were never replaced- $5000<br/>5. Siding is chipping and not up to area codes- $12000<br/><br/>What should I offer for this home? Should I ask for certain things to be done with the home in the asking price? I also only have $7500 saved for closing costs and the down payment and I need at least $2000 to be saved for a car and emergency purchases... What type of loan should I get and how much? I was thinking that the roof would NOT pass inspection by any bank and I really can't afford to just throw another on there and I know for a fact the bank will tell the person selling the home that she has to have the roof done before the bank gives any person a loan to purchase her home. Should I use a 203k or 203b or something else?&nbsp;<br/><br/>I am pretty sure the roof needs to be done before I can even get a loan. The electric would be next, then the water heater, the siding, and the windows last.<br/><br/>I am so confused about what to do and my family and I need to move before school starts. Thank you in advance for your help.<br \><br \>15 replies Sun, 12 Jun 2011 19:54:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/First-time-homebuyer-in-need-of-help/402840/ 2011-06-12T19:54:00Z ARE THERE HOMES TO BUY THAT ACCEPT SECTION 8 PAYMENTS?! http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/ARE-THERE-HOMES-TO-BUY-THAT-ACCEPT-SECTION-8-PAYMENTS/260921/ ARE THERE ANY HOMES 4 SALE THAT ACCEPT SECTION 8 PAYMENTS?!<br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 27 Jul 2009 01:43:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/ARE-THERE-HOMES-TO-BUY-THAT-ACCEPT-SECTION-8-PAYMENTS/260921/ 2009-07-27T01:43:00Z
