I am on SS Disability and would like to purchase a home. Does anyone know how or where? I don't have any other income, so I think most commonly used loans would be impossible for me. Please help! Any info is greatly appreciated!

Guess were all in the same boat. I lost my home to fire after taking in sick family who had no one or place to go. So we took her in. She got up late snd started grease fire and in 20 minutes everything was gone. Hospeace took her and she died 3 weeks later. We lost everything. Insurance dident cover what we owed so we used cards and now got bad credit. We moved in a apartment but it wasent safe so we left and now there sueing us. I thought we would be ok in life but now its a new world living in my sisters leaky camper. Seams all hope is gone. Im disabled and get 1300$ a month pay med copays its a new world.
there is a website and company called homeamerica.org, they allow people to rent to own their own home with no large payments and you can always get a real loan else where. There requirements are you have to make 2,000 a month ( I know that's difficult for some) and also no evictions in 5 years. not sure if that is something that could help you

Hi, if you are on disability and your apartment doesn't have the accessibility for you to move around safely, I'm not sure if you know this, but your landlord by law has to add any ramps, equiptment, etc that you need, I found this out a little late, but once I did it made my life a lot easier, I moved to an apt complex with no ramps & other problems for me, & the manager who was always a real jerk to me sure felt dumb when I handed him the paperwork with the laws attached, you can look them up online, landlords need to make it safe for any kind of tenants he rents too. Good luck!
I am currently disabled and also looking to purchase a home. My kids were taken cuz of the old landlord we had didnt fix the violations and the place was deemed unlivable. I now have them back and was forced to take a small apartment above a store with no elavator and several disabilities that impair my walking. The workers and even the police say it is not good or safe for me here. Recently there was a fire and then a home invasion on my landlord. We are living in fear and our home is still not repaired from fire damage. But because of the disability income I am forced to seek private owners. I am now looking into buying from a private owner thru a land contract. I know in the end I will be paying 5 times more than what it is worth but, I have no other options. They make it almost impossible for Disabled families to be able to live a secure life. I could make my payments no problem, it is the fact that my income is disability income that is keeping me from even remotely qualifying for anything. Which is why I continue to live in fear and isolated because I cannot freely move around when I need to. I completely understand you frustrations. Again, my only suggestion will be to find a private owner willing to finance or help you qualify. Best of luck.
Red,i can honestly say i know exactly how you feel. I applied for government housing on an apartment that was vacant for 2 1/2 years. I was denied because of my credit! How the heck do they not realize there's a reason why i have bad credit? BECAUSE OF WAITING FOR 2 YEARS TO GET DISABILITY! I sold off all my beloved possessions,a 12 gauge shot gun home defense model,my Ruger 9mm,my Beretta .22 LR,my bass guitar and amp,and my mint 2000 Ford Ranger XLT. I took a loss on all of them,but i had 5 mouths to feed and rent to keep a roof over our heads. All i can tell you is to just hang in there,like my mother and I say to each other,be patient something will fall into your lap.And somehow it always does,i got lucky and found an apartment complex willing to work with me. They gave me a 6 month lease to prove myself and make rent checks on time. I truly feel for you,as i'm on disability myself. It's an Automatic strike against you,and its a bunch of crap. Your credit could be flawless,but as soon as the word disability appears it's pretty much game over. I wish all the best to you and your husband,and pray you get your children back.
