Buyer had a short sale in 2013, a 630 middle credit score and $9,000.00 to buy a house
plus some funds from her 401K. She sat with me for the first time on 5/12/16 and went to
see properties on 05/15/2016.

We showed her 27 properties and she liked three of them. We made two offers
simultaneously, and we got one accepted on 5/27/2016 doing an FHA loan. The asking
was $319,000.00 and we negotiated it down to $303,500.00.

We did the inspection within 7 days and found some minor issues. I negotiated a
$6,000.00 seller credit. The appraisal came in at above contract price – $319,000.00.

We increased the price to $306,500.00 and received an additional $3,500.00 seller
credit. With the extra funds we covered most of the remaining closing costs (with the
exception of $196.50) and we used the CCAP funds from Bluecastle Lending to buy
down the rate to 3.5% (630 credit score…).

She brought in $4,924.50 on 6/23/2016 to the closing table after the $6,000.00 deposit
we had in escrow. The totality of the money she used was $10,924.50. Talk about
getting a good deal! See relevant parts of the Closing Disclosure
