I have 2 available now, just finishing 10k rehabs in pretty solid areas on the east side of Detroit,
Radnor by St. John's Hospital and State Fair just west of Kelly near Eastland shopping center. Both are near schools. $30,000 to $35,000 or land contracts available for $35,000 to $39,000 with from $4,000 to $8,000 down. State Fair is a 4 beedroom 2 bath brick colonial.

Well that is a good start. Have you prepared yourself in order to do so? Have you done the following; gone to a bank, a mortgage broker or a credit union to apply for a mortgage, do you have enough cash on hand either for a down payment or to pay cash for the property, have you contacted or interviewed any agents to help represent you in the transaction, have you driven by or viewed the areas that you would consider, and have you determined what you are looking for?

Being prepared is the best thing you could do for yourself, because if you are not ready, you could easily get outbid or miss out on a property that would work for you. Many properties today go under contract very quickly so you really need to be ready.

Contact a Realtor in your area after you have prepared yourself and have them set you up on a daily search of properties that fit your criteria and start viewing properties and choose the ones you like so your Realtor can schedule appointments for you. Whatever you do, get a Realtor, they will represent you and protect your best interests and the commission will be paid by the sellers.

Good Luck!
