Due to a short sale. Can I apply for a private investor or a hardmoney loan to buy a house? I have 40K to invest.
You can get a hard money loan with 35% down. If you have 40k, you can buy something for around 100-110K

Russ Ravary answered:
During a home inspection does the water have to be put under the buyer name in order for it to be turned on?
You may have to do that if it is a bank owned property. In regular sales the home owner should have the water on.
