I'm trying to call the "FHEO intake specialist by calling 1-800-669-9777" and I am getting a recording. It says for English, press "1" and when I do, the spanish is taking and after it is done, the one in English, says that "she" didn't understand me. Then "she" says "Let me get you someone that can help, and the phone disconnects the call!!!
Anyone I can talk toabout the 203(K) loans?
i thought we had an agency who not only enforced/ prosecuted fraud, schemes, price gouging, etc. But this same agency would protect from Dirty, Unethical, Discriminatory, Fraudulent Home Sellers? You see here in South Dakota it's not a CRIME to falsely list the price you want for your home. You want 200k but you NEVER accept that buyer giving you 200k. instead deny it or keep it and add it to your PRICE GOUGING SCHEME to rob buyers from their home dreams. Why? Because your GREEDY A-HOLES wanting to get an extra 40-80k above the asking price and using the fact that STUPID people are moving to South Dakota. it's illegal do everything else regarding illegal do everything else regarding financial crimes but you have the ALL CLEAR on this. the AMERICAN DREAM to own a HOME. Not anymore. As a 100% Disabled Veteran this DISGUSTS ME... I can't afford to buy a home that's 20-80k more than its asking price. EQUITY? WHAT EQUITY? YOU HAVE NONE.

I think it’s ridiculous, your supposed to be here to help people. Not tell people they only have so long to find a place or they are gonna lose their hud. With COVID 19 going on right now no one wants to except hud and she is homeless right now and has been looking everywhere in Franklin county Mo. so when you say your here to help people then be here to help people. Don’t kick them off hud because they can’t find a place.
INTERESTING QUESTION NEVER BEEN ASKED SO HERE GOES! I have a relative who buys hone so on and so forth , Unfortunately My family had lost our business and live on a extremely low income , We have children and our currently living with someone else In A 2 bedroom , My question is I would love to put together some informative Info on If he would buy a home and start accepting section 8 voucher for us to be able to move in ? I really want him to see the opportunity that it is very promising that he will get paid 100% every month and get a decent amount of rent as well, I want him to see all the positive things that he can do if he would start accepting this program for me which is his extended family ? Another question I really want to relocate Where is a good place or a program where he could go to , To find a hone to invest in for us? Where is there a program that sets something like this up? Are there any programs for people who are willing to accept section 8 So they can get some type of grants to buy homes to rent out for section 8ers? I would love to be able to live in a area that has cool summers , Decent winters , mountains with a city Something like Asheville NC , I have a 7 year old girl and 13 boy and want to live in a neighborhood where there are lots of well behaved children who do things as a community, So I can start finding the different programs in those areas where him and I can get this idea put together . But the first thing I need to do is find something for him to read On all the benefits he would get if he were to get involved in accepting section 8! I would love to hear these different programs, or options , I can use, I would love to hear the name of some of the places that can do something like this , What are some areas that I have mentioned I would like to relocate to and what they may have available? If I could pick out a home , Have them buy it and then have him be able to get paid by section 8 would be a absolute blessing for my family ! We have lost our hone to hurricane Irma , We have lost our entire family within 4 years due to all tragic events , Leaving us with our business Which has now been destroyed due to the corona epidemic! We have no reason to stay , We have nothing , We need to start completely fresh and if we had a opportunity like this , It would be a godsend , A blessing g like none other ! Last but not least he will not be able to purchase a home until I would figure out where I would get the section 8 voucher until I am actually would get approved for it, I have been applying to every single state and county ever since we lost our home to hurricane Irma so it’s been quite a few years every day me on the Section 8 page looking at what daily list has opened and I apply, or how would we be able to figure out where he could buy a home and then how would I be able to get the section 8 voucher if anybody could just help me explain to him or anything I could use to show him does anybody know any programs that can work something like this out I truly appreciate all your input I really hope someone can help me make my family‘s dream come true so we can restart our lives because we have lost so much I know what everyone else has to say and I have tried to think of every possible way to come back up and when this came up in my head, I reached out to you all hoping for some good results and maybe some personal experiences in references or recommendations God bless you all I hope each and everyone of you have taken the time to read this are getting better day by day because we all need to help each other during these sad and depressing times!

Totally Unimpressed with Jaime Harrison John Burl Smith Unless one has been asleep like Rip van Winkle, particularly the last 6 months, and totally unconcerned with the ongoing threat to American democracy, one cannot help but be a “little” agitated with the fact that the Chairman of the Democratic Party, who seems to be asleep at the wheel. With the insurrectionist Republican Party riding “rough shod” in the senate, killing voting rights legislation, which now puts the entire Biden agenda in jeopardy while all but dashing any hope of Democrats holding the House and taking control of the senate, “our boy” Jamie is happy hiding out in the “Big House!!!” Arriving here at any other juncture would cause hysteria, if not total panic, but “our boy” Jamie is all laid back “cool as a cucumber;” no concern there!!! Most times I try to see not only with my eyes, but with my mind. I also try to hear not only with my ears, but with my intellect as well. Believe it or not, humans are capable of perceiving reality with more than their physical senses and it is from that realm that I make the previous statement. My current thoughts were prompted, after reading Isaiah 30: 9-10 “That this is a rebellious people, lying children that will not hear the law of the Lord: which they say to the seers, see not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us, smooth things, prophesy deceit!” America, as a nation, has arrived at a moment of truth about itself, as many nations in the past. It will either face up to its history that is clearly known or it will do as those to which Isaiah spoke. Any intelligent human knows truth, though pounded down to the ground, sealed over with concrete and marvelous cities built atop of it, someday, like a dandelion growing up through a sidewalk, truth will stand, as it was when spoken or known!!! America is only as strong as the truth it reflects, though built on mountains of lies, as truth shakes its foundation, it will settle on whatever truth it will uphold, if it endure and survives? The choice before the American people is, what will they build their present effort to survive the insurrection of January 6th upon? Everyone alive today knows the truth of that day! Will Americans listen to Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump and his band singing the “Big Lie” or will they believe their eyes, and hear the voice of truth ringing in their ears? These questions are not like a national referendum or poll. It is the future laid bare for families, but these questions demand individual answers, as America’s future hangs in the balance. This is not a trick or gotcha game, where everyone wakes up tomorrow to safe futures and bright tomorrows. This time around everyone has to make their tomorrow today!!! Consequently, leaders like Jamie Harrison must shoulder the responsibility and burden they accepted with the job, like an American soldier on the frontline in a war zone defending democracy. They must step up and take their place on the line against anyone one that threatens democracy, because in taking the job, you swore an oath, as a guardian of democracy. So I say to Jamie Harrison, do your job!!! The Democratic Party is the only political party standing between the death of America’s democratic process of government, which the Republican Party’s insurrectionists attacked and tried to destroy. This fact every American witnessed and lived through vicariously, while members of the House of Representatives and Senate physically experienced that attempted coup. No amount of lies about that day will change what this nation experienced. So in accepting the job of Chairman of the Democratic Party, thus far you have a totally lackluster tenure. But the crucial fact is America is facing one of the most important elections since the Civil War and needs every patriot up on the line defending it. And as the proposition put forth back then stated, “This nation cannot exist half slave and half free!!!” The buck stops at your door. You must saddle up and ride out to face the tyranny of the Republican Party. It is way past time for you to step up and lead or get out of the way. The choice is yours!!! k
