First you have to decide if you are the type of individual that can be on call 24/7. Getting into real estate is not easy. You are responsible for one of people 's largest purchases.
If you don't answer the phone you can loose a lead. If you want time off you need to make sure deadlines and contract obligations are still met. You need to constantly educate yourself on new laws and the changing market in order to protect your client and keep yourself out of court.
If you are up for it you first need to get your CA. real estate license. Then I would work as a buyers agent or choose a company that will proved you with training.
Good Luck.... more
That's a very good question, and I'm curious about the answer for this one too.
You should run this past an estate-planning attorney. Yet, I wonder if s/he will suggest something similar to a "swap and drop".... more
Jennie, first what is the home worth, is it over priced and you believe you are offering market value? Do you believe the property will not appraise for what the seller is asking for the property? If you have your agent and seller has their agent you should not contact the seller. If there is another offer there is no way you will find out what it is unless the listing agent volunteers that information. My suggestion is if you want that house put your best foot forward offer no more or no less than you are willing to pay for it, so that when and if your offer does not get accepted you at least can say that you gave it your best shot.... more
Yes these is a way to claim depreciation on investment property and once your property produces income(when you rent it) you will have investment property.
You need to consult with an accountant.
No se puede hacer una oferta sin estar callificada. Para callificar necesitamos los taxes de 2007 y 2008, los W-2's, 2 talones de cheque(los mas recientes), y si tiene su dinero en la cuenta de cheques o ahorros una copia de el statement que le llega cada mes. El processo dura como una horra, y tiene su respuesta.

Yes, there are a number of additional papers because in 99% plus of the homes the bank gets back, they have never stepped foot in or on the property, so they make sure you know that, agree to that, and sign off on that. I would be happy to answer any other questions you might have....firstname.lastname@example.org... more
ABSOLUTELY $0. NOTHING. EVER.
It is against the law to charge upfront Civil Code 1695 and 2425 I think, as long as the property is in default (3 months or more behind).
Modifications are also handled for free by lenders, and yes there are issues, but a client can do these themselves. There is no such thing as a certified foreclosure consultant or similar.... more
I am an agent in the Buffalo NY area. We have actually had a slight increase in values when many other markets are showing a decrease. Having some money when you finance a home is good but many times not necessary. If you have strong credit you can still get a good rate on a mortgage. The key is to get pre approved before making an offer.... more
What kind of LAHD inspection did he 'comply with?' Was this for habitability? Are you following the eviction procedures outlined by the Los Angeles Housing Department (www.lacity.org/LAHD)? These often require both a 60 notice and relocation expenses, especially if your tenant is a senior citizen. I recommend you consult with a real estate attorney knowledgeable in Los Angeles landlord-tenant law.... more
