LC - if you're losing money, it might make sense to sell and move to an investment that provides positive cash flow each month. Were you covering your monthly expenses when you were getting $3,500 per month? ... more

Hi Joan, not necessarily but most of my landlords do it as a good way to start the relationship with their new tenant. They'll usually charge the previous tenant a cleaning fee from their security deposit if they left the unit in poor condition. ... more

Maria Tsabrova Buyers Rebate answered:
I would not say it is out of reach within your budget. The market is extremely fast in both areas though. You see it- you like it- you grab it. Good value places fly within a few days on the market - only overpriced ones stay longer.
I would be happy to help and cover your closing costs as well. You will get about $8000 from me towards your closing costs if I help you finding a home.
Looking forward to hear from you. Maria

thinz answered:
The bottom line is this... if paying cash your offer should never be at full price, and even lower than a discounted financed offer...simply because you have a much less complicated deal, with less issue dealing with title and mortgage commitments, and delays with closing. It is the best way to structure the best deal if paying cash....always. Would I do it? Only if absolutely necessary. I would still shoot for a financed offer in the same range (yes, the same cash offer range) and protect the cash...I would not want it dumped into a property where I could have trouble getting it out if I need it.
Finance an put the cash in a side fund that is liquid, safe, and gets a real return. Equity has no rate of return. Tom Hinz
