Home Loan for Disabled

Lizzy started this conversation

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!

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

check out home America. org they are a rent to own company with no large payments, just rent to own, and you can always get different financing at any point when you can. You have to make 2,000 a month and no evictions in past 5 years, and that's it.

The father, son & the holy spirit cannot change my credit score & the fact that I am on disability, nor can Jesus give me a loan I need for a stable home for my child & I. I know your trying to help, but please stop.

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.

I can only try to imagine... but I know except that I recieved Jesus Christ...I would be dead & without hope. Also, many folks are ill with no assistance incl ssi/ssdi & would love to have anything coming in. You have the right attitude, prayed for you.

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.

i guess when i say deaf ears i mean the govermental side of things. it seems that 99 percent of people on ssi or soc-sec are the forgotten ones shall we saythe ones beside the garbage can on tue morning. but even as bad as it is for me and thousands of others i personnally feel great just to wake up each morning, i just keep reminding myself that it can get worse. it just seems at times that the road we follow sometimes is full of ruts,and some times we have to fill in the holes to smooth the way.

Why do you say deaf ears? Please recieve Jesus as Lord & savior so that you can know your prayers are not on deaf ears. Today's Verse of the Day I shared on Facebook says: "

"Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. "Luke 12:6-7 KJV...I don't believe it is an accident I happened upon your post. Lifting you up & your situation to my LORD in prayer now.
