It sounds as if you need a management company or at very least, someone to find a viable short-term tenant who doesn't mind putting down a deposit to buy a house later? Does this mean you have many listings that need occupancy or did you need help finding suitable housing to fit this kind of purchase? Are you currently in CA now and how do you have access to these properties now and handle them in the future? I'd love to discuss how I can help represent you as a list agent and fill those vacancies.
I am a certified Hometown Hero agent with my company so this program could help potential buyers in the long run, especially those that need a lease purchase probably due to the need of credit repair. Through my program, we make sure we give the buyer back many benefits. One, for starters, includes reimbursement for the credit program costs. I'd love to continue our conversation and have briefly viewed your website.

Please call me at 919-628-9936

Rose is correct about the Glen Laurel area. Others included are the Riverwood area. You're safer if you go closer to the Flowers/Buffalo Road on 42 East.

We have a system that makes searching individual properties for taxes, much easier. We can input a particular address and it will tell us what the taxes were for the previous year! If you find taxes that are typically over $2,500, you are more than likely paying city taxes. For example, Riverwood taxes are normally over $4,000 or $5,000 a year! Which would add $416 or so to your monthly payment...

Happy hunting!

If you had to get a permit to put it up, most likely you will pay taxes on it. When you list your RV for tax purposes, legally the carport must be listed. If you do not list it, of course and did not require a permit then you don't. My suggestion is call the tax office and ask them. ... more

Ah, what an exciting time to you! And what an opportunity as well - with relaxed prices and amazingly low borrowing rates - it's a good time to be a buye.

The resources you choose to work with will make a huge difference to the success of your home buying process. As a first time buy, you'll be well served to align yourself with an agent that has strong market and inventory knowledge and the patience to educate and guide you. She will likely be able to recommend a like-minded mortgage pro.

A good way to start is to sit down with your agent for a buyer consulation - she can review the process and introduce you to a trusted mortgage pro who can qualify your budget to ensure that you looking in the right range and positioned to act when you find the right home.

Good luck and have fun!

Alex Locklear answered:

The bottom line is this: If your property is priced competitively it should sell. Despite what many may think, there are plenty of people out there who are buying homes and have the funding to do so. I have worked with quite a few people who have even paid all CASH recently for the right deal.

Be smart: make sure you choose the best agent that works for you, stage your home well, do as many minor/necessary repairs as possible, etc.

If you do all of this, on top of pricing your home competitively, your home should start to see some "action".

You should have no problem finding a home in the Clayton area for around $100,000 to $115,000. This is a great time to buy a home. It is becoming more difficult to get qualified, but when you do become qualified, there are some wonderful buys out there. ... more

Ty, I just ran across your question. I don't know if you are still looking to buy. I see that you have received some great tips from other agents.
It is very simple---call your bank or call a mortgage broker. Explain your situation and they will first of all see what price range you qualify for, then they will recommend a realtor for you to work with. At that time, the realtor will have a very good idea what price range homes to be searching for. ... more
