I have someone that might be able to help you. What price range are you looking for? Send me an email and I will send you the lenders information.

Very simply put, if you plan on using the home as a rental, then I would tell you to go for a one bedroom. One bedroom rentals provide the least issues when renting. Think about it, you are renting to one person, maybe a couple. But a 2 bedroom, you could have to rent it to a couple with two same sex children, posing 2 to 4 tiimes the wear and tear on your property! ... more
