June Buerkle answered:
As a landlord, I am looking for red flags that will help me eliminate potentially irresponsible tenants.

When I pull your credit file, I get more than just a credit score .... I get a criminal records search and derogatory information report.

The score isn't everything, but I can see why it is lower and if it is due to recent info or stuff from years ago.

If I see a lot of recent late payments, I get concerned that you might be strapped and only one little hiccup could prevent you from making rent.

Also, it is hard for me to verify "good rental history" .... as unless you have been evicted, there really is not much rental history that can be verified. If I call a big property management company, they will only verify dates. If I call a small landlord .... how am I supposed to verify he/she really was your landlord and not just a friend whose cell number you slipped men for a reference. Plus the last landlord is useless as a reference, because if you are a horrible tenant, they will keep mum or perhaps even lie to get you off their property.

You don't need to necessarily go through a bank to finance your property. You can go with any mortgage company and often the smaller ones are better. If you need advice on financing for buying a property or for refinancing it, call Jim Randolph, he is an amazing loan officer. His number is 410-365-2970 and his email address is jrandolph@primeres.com. If you need a reliable realtor to work with, you can call or text me anytime at 443-633-8852 or you can email me at blakerandolph@kw.com.

Happy House Hunting!

Hi Bruce,

The posts have merit; overall you'd get more BANG FOR YOUR BUCK hiring a Broker. Visit my site www.salemyhousenow.com for info and tips for sellers. You can also see my "featured" listings there which ALL get shared with heavily trafficked websites that today's buyer uses to find a great home like yours. I'd love to learn more about your needs and how I can help. NAR research shows that 85-90% of buyers start looking for homes online when searching and a whopping 95% use a Realtor in the transaction. IF THEY HAVE SOMEONE REPRESENTING THEIR INTERESTS, SHOULDN'T YOU? I'd say a resounding, YES, YOU SHOULD! But that's just my humble opinion. Lol. Feel free to call me to discuss your needs, and get a few "no obligation tips" to help with the sale.

All The Best,
Marlene Rogers, Broker/Owner JEMS Realty LLC

Hi nightshift,

Sounds like you are one of the lucky ones. Try putting a little aside each month to save for that down payment. Without ready funds in the bank for a down payment of at least 3.5% you probably won't be able to move forward. ... more

An appraisal will assist with determining a value but it will cost you. a local realtor can provide you with a CMA of recent sales and current homes on the market that are similar to yours to give you a good estimate of value for free!

good luck

Brian Nguyen answered:
If you happen to have a lot of money for a down payment you would have a better chance, but as of now it seems that it would be difficult. I can't guarantee you that you can or can't qualify for that because there's a lot of other factors that lenders like myself would need to look at as well. These factors include your credit score, assets, liabilities, expenses, debt, employment, down payment, as well as your income. The most efficient way to see how much you can qualify for is to speak with a lender directly. Lenders like myself would be glad to speak with you to help guide you to the loan that you need. So if you have any further questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me! Good Luck!

Hi Yoyo,

These are questions you should be asking of the agent that represents you. And one that specializes in the area where you are searching. Is the home reasonably priced for it's location and condition? A pro can help you structure a winning offer. I do know that many properties are moving quickly so if the value is there don't hesitate to give it your best offer right out of the gate. Best of luck. ... more

The more full bathrooms the better, as long as they are done properly by licensed plumbers and electricians and meet all current codes you should not have any re-sale issues.
