As an investor, I understand about cutting cost and to maximize profit. However, it's better to be safe than sorry and title can make mistakes. In other words, hire an attorney and you can sleep better at night. ... more

Before you install any granite on the floor I would suggest that you contact a local realtor and ask for opinion. What does the local market dictates? How is your home compared to similar homes in your subdivision? Do most of them have granite flooring? Here in Dallas on high end homes we see nice hardwood or marble tile.

I hope this helps!

As a Realtor, and former mortgage underwriter, I am sorry to say the answer is not so simple. It will depend on your other debt as well. Credit cards, auto payments, student loan payments, etc.

You would need to look at the benefits of an FHA loan v. Conventional. FHA will allow higher debt to income ratios.

What monthly payment are you comfortable with now? How long until you are done with school and working?

As with anything in real estate, there is never a blanket easy answer.

Best of luck,

B. Ranee Bray

Like everything in Real Estate, it all depends on YOUR preference. I personally live East of 35 just off of Riverside Dr. and I absolutely love it! This area is BOOMING! I'm just minutes from downtown, and for $10's of thousands (if not $100's) less than the homes west of 35. Your options are endless.....there are plenty of new construction communities that have a lot to offer, there are some great deals on resale homes, and there is STILL land available to build your own home. Call me if you would like to learn more. ... more

Dear Pranshu,
I agree with Carol: single family homes or duplexes are easier to rent than multi-plexes. Property close to the university always leases, otherwise stick to the Hi-tech corridor on 183. Good luck!

Hi Mike--
I work with several investors who buy single family homes (and rent them out) that cash flow.
You can keep adding to your inventory of homes over time and end up with a nice income stream. This works especially well with new homes. That way you don't have to fuss with remodel or repairs for many years and you have warranties that cover A/C etc...

I have invested in real estate all over the world and have helped others do the same. I am happy to say I have always done well for myself & my clients. Choose a Realtor that has experience and knowledge in investment and a track record for choosing the right properties.

Just another option you might consider to get started...
Let me know if you would like more details & info.
I'm here to tell you what I know!!

All the Best.
