Hi,

This data is provided to us by Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I have created a ticket to Zillow Consumer Care to request the removal of the foreclosure status from your property. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

I'm a former realtor but typically the word "courtesy" means free. So to me a courtesy listing means the seller refuses to pay a commission or referral fee. Are you 100% positive the family friend will pay a referral fee or commission? I would get something in writing to verify this because you don't want to move forward and then "oops".

Are you the Broker in Charge or Office Manager or is there a Broker you report to. Remember all listings are the property of the brokerage, so I would verify with my broker or office manager to make sure a courtesy listing is permitted on your MLS. You don't want to have issues with the MLS.

Hello Isejalbo, no your employment will have to begin at the new job in Henderson and receive one month in paystubs to be able to fund a mortgage. Are you both W2 employees?

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the purchase. How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford?

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Do you know what your fico scores are and have down payment and closing costs saved?

You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score and you may consider 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score. Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Do you have family or anyone you can reside with in Henderson while looking to purchase? If not you may have to secure a short term rental. There are some rentals that are ready for immediate occupancy while purchase will take 30-45 days to open escrow and close.

You could study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. The single family home rentals in Henderson start from $895 for 2bd 1ba home. The purchase in Henderson start from 129k for 2bd 1ba single family home. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in NV. Check out the web reference links below...

It depends on your credit. Different landlords will have different qualifications. For example, my company recommends a 560 as an approval. There is more to it though, credit is just one of the many components. A lot of rentals require 3X the monthly rent, no criminal record etc, and various minimums for credit score. The best thing to do is be honest and upfront, ask these questions initially and if the landlord says you meet their qualifications, it is worth applying. If you don't they should tell you before applying to a property you'd be denied.

I suggest you check out this article, it breaks down exactly what landlords are looking for when approving or denying an applicant. I think it will really help!

I hope this helps!

Verde Viejo is not as nice a complex as Spanish Gardens. Also, they are much closer to the busy street of Warm Springs, so they hear a lot more traffic noise.

The condos at Spanish Gardens are bigger, and nicer. That's why. ... more

Hank Lauzon answered:
Hello Quiznette,

It sounds reasonably priced compared to other units that you have looked at but investors have specific criteria that they look for when purchasing assets.

Cap rates and ROI (Return on Investment) are two of the items they will scrutinize along with the condition of the property and possible appreciation for a future transaction.

Also, there may be rental restrictions in your development that can hinder or enhance the sale of the property.

Please contact me when you have a moment and we can run a Comparative Market Analysis on the unit and see what the rents are going for.
From that point, we will set up a strategy and create a win/win situation for everyone involved...!

Sincerely,
Hank Lauzon
