Keller Williams Realty First Atlanta
Where do you live, Allen?
Will you be the landlord and property manager?
In the next decade, do you intend to buy more than one house for rental income, or is this the only purchase you plan?
If you use all your money for one property, the issue you run into is, "I need money! It's an emergency!"
Too bad if your money is tied up in the house because you'll only be able to get back about 65 to 70% of the price you paid on the property (if bought within 12 months). You'll also have to pay lender fees to pull the money out.
If you don't qualify for a loan, they use alternate measures. Private money, for example lends money up to 30 years at fixed rates. The rates aren't as low as a bank but it's available. This will also help you with taxes to give you the ability to write off the income from the properties. The IRS no longer allows you to just say that you had repairs done, you have to issue a 1099 to the contractor for certain amounts. The IRS tracks the 1099 by making you send them in with form 1096.
With the final phase of implementation of the health care reform bill in 2014 (Obamacare) larger companies will be required to give health insurance to all its employees. A lot of the larger companies have already said they will start to cut jobs this year to help offset the expenses and/or cut jobs to lower their size below the threshold. This may cause the economy to take another nose dive. Are you ready for that financially?
You would really just need to sit down with a Buyer's Agent to go over the details of what you are looking for. Once your criteria is identified, you can then make a better determination on area.
To make an offer on a property that is listed for sale, you should be represented by a Buyerâ€™s Agent. The Buyerâ€™s Agent will work on your behalf throughout the transaction. This is very important since the Listing Agent represents the seller. By working with a Buyer's Agent, you are only seeing the homes that are actually listed for sale at that time.
If you need a recommendation on a Buyerâ€™s Agent, please contact me at (404) 591-2453 or email@example.com. I would be happy to put you in touch with someone who can assist you.
The seller of the property will want to make sure that you are qualified to purchase the property should your offer be accepted. Working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your options.
