Should we re-rent out our investment property or sell for the land? The house is 2BD/1BA on a quarter acre.
Koriath,
I would love to learn more about your location.
The rental market is really hot right now, but I also work closely with a builder that is looking for lots.

Are corner lots across the street from a recreational park/swimming pool location desirable to build on?

Hello, I want to help my parents refinance their house. They live in Illinois, I live in California.
You should find a national lender with branches in both California and Illinois. This way, you can help them complete the paperwork and get help within California if necessary.

Should I submit a back-up offer or move on?
Hi Chald,

If you really like the house, submit a backup offer (if the seller is accepting backup offers). In today's market, you never know if a deal is going to close until it's ac ... more

Submitting a cash offer but taking out a mortgage before closing?
This was done often in the past. The better option is to close with cash then get a mortgage. This definatly works better on a short sale or foreclosure.

Is it realistic to offer 460k on a 500k house? It's been listed for over 300 days... moving from Seattle so don't know the local market
Absolutely, I would consider that a very good offer but you should ask your agent to provide data for the area to confirm the value. You don't want to over pay either.

How does one find the homes that the banks are sitting on and how does one go about looking at them and buying one of them?
There really is no way to buy them until they go through the foreclosure process and then get listed for sale with a Realtor. Your best bet is to find a Realtor to work for you as a Buy ... more

Ellen Stern answered:
Possible to buy with cash and then take out mortage?
yes - even if you are buying a home with cash it still takes some time to close on a home - you need a title report and a survey - the quickest you can close is about 2-3 weeks.

During home buying process, who can access my financial information (income, savings, etc.) other than the bank that approved the mortage?
Generally, that's it. The only one who will need that info is your lender.

how can we rent a house for a corporation?
It sounds like you are the owner asking about renting out your home to a corporation, is that correct? You would have to check zoning ordinances with the village before proceeding.
