I see that you are in Arizona. Since I have only been here 8 years, I asked the same question when I arrived. During the 40's and 50's McConnell AFB had housing built for military and also Boeing had housing built for employees. There are a lot of 2-3 bedroom, 1 bath small homes, some with a 1 car garage.The neighborhoods vary...some are primarily owner occupied, some are almost all rental properties. People in Wichita are very conservative. They don't pay more than what they think the property is worth, for the most part. Tax appraisal is key here. Some of the lower priced properties are in disrepair or in a very rough neighborhood.
But, we also have beautiful homes in flourishing neighborhoods for$130,000 up to $1.5 million. It just depends on what you are looking for. If I can help, let me know.... more
Price per square foot varies by location, condition and year built. Do you want an average or specific locations? The National Association of Realtors has a report that is much more reliable than Zillow or Trulia. A Realtor can give you a report in a few minutes. Let me know what you need and I'll email it to you.... more
There is no rule. However, generally 90 days is how long banks wait to file initial foreclosure papers. Then usually another 3-6 months until the sheriff's sale. Selling the house is almost always a great way to avoid foreclosure. It's usually much better for your credit score if it only shows a few late house payments as opposed having a foreclosure. Feel free to give me a jingle, 316-250-9960, to review this possibility. Thanks & best wishes.... more
Usually your best bet is to find a hard money lender or folks like my husband and I who work with other investors in the local area flipping homes or have rentals. Yes, it has been difficult getting loans these past few years. What part of town are you looking into living and what are your home specs that you would like to have? How many bedrooms,bath, a garage, etc. Are you willing to have some patience if we find a foreclosure that may need some work and that is painted and updated to your specs? If we can't help you, I know we can find another real estate investor who is willing to work with you. You can contact us at 316-519-3101 and ask for Crissy or Johnny.... more
You may move out if you wish. However, please know that sometimes a lender will send inspectors to short sale homes to verify occupancy. If the inspector finds a home vacant they may execute the lenders right to secure, manage & even winterize the property. This can lead to a filing of foreclosure or if a foreclosure is already underway it may lead to a foreclosure acceleration. When they secure the property they may have the right to enter the home and remove any personal property they find if it is deemed detrimental to the property.... more
Are you getting feedback from those showings? Listen to and consider all of the feedback you are getting. If there are negative things on the list that are consistent, then make a change! Those buyers help depict the sale of your home. Lowering your price $2000 will not make a change...you will still be getting the same buyers looking in the same price range.... more
Well, don't forget about the loan officers too. When a person decides to buy a house and needs a loan, the first place they are advised to go to is the bank. The loan officer will request they provide the name and number of their insurance agent. You know how many times I have to refer people to insurance agents? About 3 out of 5 times.
This doesn't just play a role in buying property either. When refinancing a client, if the numbers come in tight to qualify the person, we have to look at ways to cut down their expenses: Property tax reduction, credit debt reduction and Insurance reduction. I've had numerous clients using their old company from years back and their agent never called them to offer them a lower rate. Why would they?
To me, being an insurance agent in GA, it makes a lot of sense to stay in touch with clients in case they have a new baby and need more life insurance or bought a house, a new car etc.
Other places to network with: Construction workers, roofers, divorce attorney's, closing attorney's/title companies, home owner's association's.... more

All the foreclosed properties are in the MLS. You need to be able to see the "ownership" line of the listing information. If a house is "individual" or "corporate", it is not a foreclosure. All other descriptions, such as: Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac, HUD, VA, or REPO or REO may be a foreclosure or pre-foreclosure property. You do not have to pay money for a list, to obtain this information. The MLS can be found through my website: LeAnnaBeat.com. You can email me with other questions at: LeAnna@LeAnnaBeat.com... more
