I know they were working out some kind of a program like that. Some lenders may be offering it, you will have to ask them.

Nicole Fedorchek answered:
Because your LB home is now a rental, yes you will pay capital gain. The exemption for capital gain is only for a PRIMARY residence. You have a few options:

-Move into the LB home for 2 years, and then sell it (2 years is the minimum for an exemption)
-Do a 1031 Exchange for the LB home
-Pay capital gains

Please contact me directly to discuss your options in greater detail~

I need to delete my rental because it is rented - how do I do it? I tried to follow the directions - to click on my profile pic but it doesn't let me do that so I can access my listings.

You have to check with the city, as they all define their own definitions of these zonings.

Karen McEniry answered:
Hi Bill,
I also endorse John Davis as an excellent resource, as recommended by some of the other responses you received. As another option, if you are not able to get approved for a conventional loan to do this, I can
refer you to a very reliable mortgage broker who has access to private money as well,
even if it's only a short term solution.
Please contact me if you'd like their information.

Best Regards,

Nicole Fedorchek answered:
Hi, Mason!
Its not a matter of the seller getting their money at closing, its a matter of whether or not you will be ABLE to close!
Vacant lots are hard to loan on, as there is no home to add value for loan collateral. Therefore, the seller will question if you truly can close the deal, or if you are just wasting his time. The best thing to do is to obtain a pre-approval letter from your lender to present with your offer. Perhaps, also have your lender call the listing agent for the seller, and reassure them that the deal will close. Also, tighten up your contingency periods to show that you are a serious buyer.
Good luck!

The Cheryl Coleman Team answered:
Hi Bill,

Are you currently working with an agent or on your own? Your agent should know these things and should be showing you property every day until you find and excange property. Trulia, Zillow, aren't quite as acurate as the MLS service that agents search in. If you need an agent who has a fantastic team of Buyers Specialist's let me know. I am the top Agent in my office and my team would be looking for properties for you on a dailiy basis until we find what suits your needs. You don't need to be doing this on your own.

Best of luck,

Cheryl Coleman

Raymond & Stephanie Louison answered:
Rent to own transactions are usually especially beneficial towards the seller. Typically an owner will only consider them as an option, when they feel the market value will decline or stay flat. If values go up a lot, good luck getting the owner to complete the transaction. In the OC market, values and rental income are still on the rise, so I would not expect many owners to be very open to a rent to own option. ... more

Hi lsuzanne,

With the foreclosure on your credit now, it is highly unlikely anyone will give you a loan to buy another house for at least a few years so that should be the least of your worries.

Good luck,

Rich Littlefield answered:
It may be that your agent is trying to the best job they can for you by writing the offers as low as possible. This works if you are the only one making an offer. When there are 20 offers on the property as there are many times today, then writing the low offer is counter productive. It is a lot of work to do that way.

Try finding an overpriced home that has been sitting there and writing a low ball offer. YOu may be the only offer they have and they may have to take it.

I have taken to finding out what my customers want and contacting people with homes that may fit their needs that are not listed.

Yes it is hard to get an offer through now days, it may not be fair to have your agent work that hard for you only to have you bail. But I do not know enough about it to say one way or the other.
