Hi Ginger,

In the last 180 days , 9 single family homes closed in our MLS in the shannamara community. 3 out of 9 were foreclosures and one of those 3 was on Bethesda. The 3 foreclosures went around 82-83$ per sqft . The avg price per sqft was $103 total for all 9 solds but others did sell for much higher per sqft in this community . The average days on market was around 60 days. In my opinion this area is very solid and is holding its value well, i do not see a down trend. The foreclosures will pass and the avg will rise some. The subject property looks like is priced around 110sqft . If you would like more detailed information on the subject property or would like a more detailed analysis of true comparables for the subject property, feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks Ryan 704/608.4767 C/T or ... more

Generally, I'd expect that you could purchase as an investor or second home and get a loan with 20% down. It also depends on the home price and your income. You would likely have to pass international credit and background check. In the US for owner occupants, the general requirements are summarized in the Trulia Blog: I have bad credit and no savings. Can I get a home or am I stuck renting? If you meet these standards, I could direct you to several lenders. If you appreciate an answer, please give "thumbs up". For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a "best answer" click. ... more
