Fernando Estrada-

Yes, you most definately can purchase a home but there are more factors to consider than just your credit score. How old is your child, I just had my second, she turned three yesterday.

I am a loan officer located on the other end of the US but I do want to let you know that we loan in all 50 states, are nationally respected, and a member of the FDIC.

I would like to chat more with you about the potential for you to purchase. Please feel free to contact me at 208-818-3768 or abyrd@afg-co.com

Look forward to hearing from you soon......

Sure can, as a cash buyer you still have the ability to add contingencies to the contract including but not limited to an appraisal and home inspection which are always recommended.

Parking can be an invaluable asset here in Canton, as a Canton resident I can definitely attest to that. The value that it adds to the property I have seen vary depending on the ease of getting in and out of the parking spot if there is an alley, etc, and the amount of property that is left over next to the pad for any type of additional patio space or backyard. Generally I would say close to 5% of the market value of a home can be attributed to a parking pad if here in close proximity to Canton square. ... more

Greg,

I personally feel that there are too many properties on the market currently for you to take such a risk. Think about it. Do you want to live next door to tenants that have no stake in the condition of the place that they are renting? Of course, that would be a huge negative factor to deal with when you try to sell in the future if that property is still in disrepair. Also, I have personally found that having renters as neighbors is not usually a good senario. They have no financial stake in the property and none to you as a neighbor. However, in a high rent district, you may end up with a doctor as your neighbor. Higher rent amounts normally generate better tenants, however their is no guarantee.

I would stick to finding a home that is near other homeowners just like yourself that have a financial stake in the property. At least you would hope that they will take care of their home. I also encourage my buying clients to knock on their prospective neighbor's door and just talk to them for a few minutes. A lot of time you can get a lot of valuable information from a good neighbor. I always do this when I move.

If you are not currently working with an agent, please give me a call. I would love to share some tips with you that I feel are essential when buying a home.
