If you're talking about "affordable" homes; it will help.
But anything above that; it is not that important: At the end of the Escrow, everyone will have their money and no one will remember you bringing in a suitcase.
If you have oodles of money, go ahead.
But if that is limited, you'd probably be better off put a big Down Payment and financing the rest:

I am pretty sure every piece of land in the United States has a property tax attached to it that must be paid whether it is built upon or not. Even owners of vacant land have to pay property taxes.... more
Are you looking to be an investor/landlord or a happy homeowner? If you are capable of showing full docs for a loan, you may qualify for an FHA loan and that would only require 3.5% down and you could get the home you are looking for. Then, based on you income, credit, etc, I know of a lender that can do 25% down on investments. Its late right now, but I would be happy to discuss this further with you over the weekend or early next week. Hope to assist. Thanks.... more
Hi Tony, unfortunately this property is not an actual listing, the owner is now 90+ days late on their mortgage, or better known as a pre-foreclosure. This property may become an REO "foreclosed home" in the future or the owner may also bring all payments current.
You can view all current West Hollywood properties for sale here and even request a showing too:
Feel free to call me if you see any properties that you would like to see.
Have a wonderful day,

Tough question. The hottest place to live right now is "The Bird Streets" - a lot of Celebrities, amazing views, modern homes with pools over looking all of LA, etc. That's north of Sunset usually of off Sunset Plaza.
Also, the Trousdale area is very hot as well...... more
I think I am a bit biased but I would say Hollywood Hills. :) I've seen some pretty great condos in your price range lately.
However, if you need a realtor in Miami I know a great guy I could refer you to.
If you have any questions or need anything. Feel free to reach out. I am always happy to help

Generally after you've built the home it will be assessed by the County assessor's office at the rate of about 1.2% depending on the County. However, you could be assessed over and above that if there are other "special assessments" that have been imposed in certain counties for various improvements i.e. roads, infrastructure, bridges, curbs, gutters, bridges, etc.
You'd be wise to contact the County assessor in the county you're planning to build in and present them with your plans first. They will determine the vale of the land by comparing it to other like parcels in the same area and they will charge you by the square foot for the home.... more
