Hello Scotty, yes there is and what are you trying to figure out? Do you have a home you are thinking about listing/selling in Apple Valley or are you shopping for a home?

Are you looking to purchase an investment rental in Apple Valley? You may consider 15% down for an investment purchase, from 10% down for a second home purchase and from 3% down for a primary residence with a minimum 620 fico score.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can then be set up to receive daily automatic emails to fit your search criteria from any local agent here.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Do you know what your fico scores are and how much you want to invest into the purchase?

We are in Apple Valley, check out the web reference link below and choose the loan program you are considering...

I would also try contacting lenders that do commercial loans. They might be a good source for commercial investors.

Hello manmoud firas, yes sure if you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy and to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You may qualify FHA for a primary home purchase from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Definitely for legal advice you need to speak to an attorney!

That is not good that you did not receive all the disclosures, the other party could be in serious trouble.

The ROI for an investment property in Big Bear depends on a lot of things. What type of property are you considering?

Most people who ask this question are considering buying a vacation home and renting it out part of the time when they are not using it.

If you only consider the Cash Flow component of owning your Big Bear home as your "Return On Investment" then you will likely be disappointed because you'd have to make a large percentage of a down payment when buying your Big Bear home in order for it to cash flow positive on a vacation rental program. If you also consider the enjoyment of your Big Bear home as part of the return on your investment then you are crazy not to buy a home in Big Bear. There is no way to put a cash value on the memories you will make up here in Big Bear in your mountain cabin retreat but I can guarantee that it will be the best ROI you have ever received on any investment in your lifetime.

If you also consider the appreciation you will get when you sell your Big Bear home then your home will have a big ROI even from a cash on cash standpoint. When you are ready to buy your Big Bear Home check out my website with every Big Bear home for sale at:

Big Bear is Southern California's only 4 season resort with skiing & snowboarding in the winter, mountain biking and hiking in the spring and fall and lake activities ranging from wake boarding to fishing in the summer. Because of it's unique location in the mountains and because it is surrounded by national forest it has a limited supply of homes for sale and it can't keep expanding outward as people discover our mountain paradise and demand grows. Big Bear serves populations of Millions who are in San Diego, LA, Orange County, and Palm Desert and it becomes more and more popular every year. There are many professional athletes (MMA fighters, Boxers, Pro Mountain Bikers, Skiers, and Snowboarders) who train up here due to the high altitude, clean air and number of sunny days per year.

In conclusion, Buy a vacation home here in Big Bear and you won't regret it. Your ROI will be the quality of life you live, and the memories you make with family and friends here, as well as a little extra cash to help you get by.

Warm Regards,
