As long as the fed does not raise interest rates from 0% - .05%, banks can still make money above 3% and are Why do banks and credit unions offer 1.5% rates on CDs??? Because they are still making money, and spending your CD deposit for further money growth and lending to others!

Neil - I get these requests a lot as I work on short sale resolutions for sellers. Many investors ask how they can get on the list to have first crack at the purchase offer. Here's the deal though that many folks (maybe not you but definitely others...) need to realize - when folks like myself get involved in negotiating with a lender's short sale department, our responsibility is to the seller, not the buyer. The seller is authorizing me to speak on their behalf to bring about an approval with terms that work best for the seller. Now of course most if not all of the deals I have done have benefited the buyer indirectly because a) I got the deal approved and closed, and b) the buyer likely got the home less than the BPO value because of the case we built to point out the real AS IS value for the home, as well as the hardship case made for the seller. But regardless, the responsibility I/we have is for the sellers, not the investor. Hope this was helpful if you did not realize it. Tom Hinz ... more

Personally, I find investment properties in out of state locations that are stable or growing, where you can purchase and rent and have a positive income flow after expenses is the way to go. You need to focus on a good property management company, realtor agency, and title company so you have all the pieces for a good investment property team. It takes a little work, but it is in my opinion a better option than trying to compete with overpriced foreclosures here in can find some good ones, but the competition is very high, and the cash flow situation could be riskier depending on your financing...It is more difficult to have a positive income after expenses in NJ on a foreclosure.

You can finance a mobile home for as little as 5% down. JCF lending group has several financing options. You can call 1866-967-0143. Many banks don't finance mobile homes, because it falls under a chattel, which is tangible personal property, and is moveable. ... more

Yaniv Waknin answered:
Is that residential or commercial?.
Its depends on what allowed to be build on the land. to know the price you need to know how many unit or sq and how high can you build. what about parking?
There is also improvement stuff you need to know before you going to construction. what will be the improvement you must do by law around you house or commercial building.
and don't forget to check for wet land or contaminate.

If you looking to buy land I know some expert.
