Yes, you can buy a condo and give to your child. Are you purchasing with cash or do you need a loan? If you need a loan and depending upon your financial situation and your child, I would suggest that you talk to a lender and discuss what you are trying to accomplish. ... more

That is really impossible to say. You can contact the utility company and they will give you the bills for a home you are considering buying. I have done it for my clients. It may or may not be that helpful because an individual who likes to keep a home at 72 degrees all summer long is going to pay a lot more than a person who keeps the thermostat at 78 degrees.

So while it can provide you with some actual data it may or may not be helpful for you to guage your actual expenses.

There are tons of construction jobs here now as we really ramp up building. I would hit ever construction site in the area and start networking.

I like Rich's post...great idea if you need a place to live is start meeting with the investors groups. Post in the investor forums. Maybe you can live in a house while it is being remodeled. That might mean moving every couple of months, but might help you get on your feet.

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.”
-George Bernard Shaw

By the way, I would be much more trusting of a person who said I screwed up. I made a dumb mistake. I was 19 young and dumb, but I learned my lesson and have been on the straight and narrow for the past 10 years. I work hard, I'm trying to improve my life, I go to AA every day, I go to church at this place...or whatever then someone who says due to a flaw in the system. Even if that is the truth....there are plenty of flaws in the legal system,but that is probably not what employers or owners want to hear.

You can also stay in one of the extended stays motels for a while to get started. They don't do background checks.
