I have excellent credit and my fiance has terrible credit. Will this affect our chances of being approved for <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage-rates/">loans</a> and all the other stuff necessary for buying a house? Can I sign by myself if his bad credit will keep us from being approved? What are the pros and cons of signing by myself versus co-signing in this situation? Any relevant information concerning this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!<br \><br \>4 replies Mon, 05 Dec 2011 16:48:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Good-credit-vs-Bad-credit/424874/ 2011-12-05T16:48:00Z Home Buyers!

It is a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/fore_lt/">foreclosure</a> property. The city assessor website shows that it is currently bank owned. The last assessment by the city while the property was in good shape was $148,000. It is the nicest looking house on it's block.&nbsp;When the title changed to the bank it was in the amount of $123,000. The <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-agents-sellers-agent/">listing agent</a> has the property at $134,900. It needs some TLC in the way of carpet, paint, appliances and windows in the sunroom. The roof and all other windows are quite new. The basement is in decent shape but the flooring is all messed up and would need to be redone. Looking for a deal I was thinking to offer right around the ball park of 94,000 to 98,000 as my opening. Which falls into 70 to 73 cents on the dollar. Can anyone align my thinking if i'm off or please affirm if you think this is a good opening offer.<br \><br \>2 replies Thu, 11 Mar 2010 14:56:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-much-to-offer-on-foreclosure/333087/ 2010-03-11T14:56:00Z
