You really need to be careful, if it sounds too good to be true it is. Do not send any type of cash or check.

Word of caution, ANYONE can post a rental, so we recommend you verify the status of properties with a trusted local Realtor to avoid scams. You browse for a local Realtor under the agent directory. Find a well reviewed one and have them be your first point of contact for everything real estate related. Realtors must adhere to a strict code of ethics which offers you consumer protection and piece of mind. Good luck with your rental search. ... more

I am thinking of selling my home and it has a swimming pool. I have been wondering this same question for a while and I still haven't found the answer. I would expect it to add a big value to the home though but I don't even know a ballpark range.

I work primarily with multifamily property owners in Leominster and I also own several properties myself. If you're still looking for an apartment please let me know what you're looking for and I can help you find a place. Leominster is pretty competitive when it comes to apartments so rents are moving up and vacancies in nice properties are rare. I own 25 units and only have one vacancy at the moment. Let me know if I can help. ... more

Mary Saunders Martorella answered:
Rehab financing requires money down and good credit scores. Lenders generally look for scores over 620. In regards to no money down, it can be done with a good credit score. My suggestion would be to work on paying off whatever is affecting your score and making sure nothing is on the credit report that is older than 7 years. My second suggestion would be to try saving $20 a week towards a down payment. Immediately divert the money into a savings account. That is $1040, before interest, saved in one year. On top of the down payment, there are other up front costs you will need to pay to get into a home. These include home inspections and bank appraisals. You may want to speak to a mortgage counselor to see what strategy would work best for you. I have several names if you are interested. ... more

Mary Saunders Martorella answered:
No. They are one and the same. The 203k loan covers both the selling price and the renovation price. It allows you to pay for the renovation over the life of your loan rather than a lump sum. If you bought the home for 35K and got a loan for 150K, that means the lender has made an assessment that says your property will be worth 150K once the work has been completed. It also means they expect the cost of repairs to be approximately 115K. Who is your lender? Why didn't they explain this to you? ... more

Mary Saunders Martorella answered:
If it is listed in the multiple listing service (MLS), it means it is available for sale. Not knowing the property you are referring to limits what I can say in a general way. If the property has not yet gone on the market, find out if the bank is planning on an auction of the property. ... more

Mary Saunders Martorella answered:
You need to get a letter from the credit agency stating your payment plan. I have had buyers in similar situations. If you need assistance finding a lender who will work with you and work with the credit agency regarding this loan, let me know; I know several mortgage specialists who will work with you. ... more

Greer Swiston answered:
Do you mean Deutche Bank?

Banks will rarely deal directly with a buyer on a single property unless there is an auction ... you may be best off finding who the assigned REO Listing agent is.

Though most banks will list their REO inventory and assigned agents, apparently Deutchland Bank requires that you fax a request to them and then they will send you a list http://www.reorealestate.net/deutsche-bank-reo-properties/10018

Or, you can contact an REO specialist/agent in the Leominster area (look for recently sold foreclosures and see who the listing agent was) ... who will most likely know how to get ahold of the property in which you're interested. That would be my recommendation.

Are we talking My Cousin Vinny in the jail quiet or On Golden Pond at the lake quiet?
Personal definition is best answered by the real estate professional who is learning your taste and interests.

Amy Mullen answered:
Kbarn,

There are few things you could do but rarely would you end up with instant equity in a short sale purchase. There is a slight discount for the risk that is being assumed by the buyer but they sell for close to their market value.

You could rent your house and then be able to move forward. Most mortgage companies consider the obligation satisfied if the rent is 110% of the mortgage payment. That's just one thought - please give me a call if you want to hash out some ideas.

Joe
I am here to help you with your home search in Concord and surrounding towns.
I have been successful finding homes for other Hanscom Field personnel for under $450,000 in Concord to Hudson to Littleton and Leominster.
I would suggest the first step would be to register on my site www.homesbyjeffrey.com for free access to all homes for sale and start receiving daily emails of all new listings that meet your criteria. This is by far the best and easiest way to have up to date information and be the first to know of all new listings.
You can save homes and request showings of any homes on my site and an easy way for us to communicate.

I look forward to working with you and helping you in anyway I can be of the most help in your new home purchase.
Thank You
