Please tell us what a wholesale property is. Cash does not do much except when buying a dump that can not get a loan on it because of its condition. Otherwise a seller will wait a few weeks for a loan to go through to get thousands more. If you were the seller wouldn't you??????????? ... more

Depends on the size and year built of the home as well as condition.

For a normal size home 900-1000 home and a home age of 1950-1970 (which is a normal age in that area), and also considering it to be in a good condition,

Youre looking at $220,000-$260,000.

Contact me for specific details.

V: If you have been claiming the rent as income on your tax return, we can utilize that as income.
I have yet to find a borrower who does claim the rental income, so it is easy to say 'no'.
There are other ways to stretch your income utilizing various first time homebuyer programs in the Alameda and Contra Costa counties. These include first time homebuyer programs with down payment assistance and mortgage credit certificates that will credit you 15% of your future mortgage interest as income. With a $400k loan, that would give you about $220 more per month in income.
Hope this helps!

I know all three of these towns well and have lived in Berkeley and Hercules. If you don't mind a suburban community you might just want to live in Hercules. It will probably be the most affordable and offer zero commute. But you are more focused on quality of life issues. Each is a different culture. Berkeley is still a counter-culture type community with a large campus on it. Walnut Creek in an upscale suburb with a good business center. Each is not a bad commute to Hercules. Berkeley is probably closer, But WNC is probably a less stressful drive if you head out Highway 4. ... more

You can try and submit an offer of a home contingent upon the sale of your current home.

You should make sure you have a solid buyer for your home, and the escrow is close to closing.

Best of luck to you !!

Were you delinquent on your mortgage before you turned in your keys for cash? If not, and you are not in default on any other debts, you may be able to buy again soon. Contact a reliable lender for advice. ... more

Olivia Chikezie answered:
One of the reasons is that cash buyers can close within seven to ten days after their offer is accepted. Also, they usually don't ask have any contingencies in their offer making it more attractive to sellers because they get to pocket more money from the sale. Don't give up hope though, what's yours will come your way! ... more

Philip Cabral answered:
There isn't a contract until after an offer has been accepted, or in the case of a short sale an approval by the lender(s) and the earnest money deposit has been given by the buyer. In a short sale, an approval by the lender(s) can take as long as a year. So, it is wise to make offers on every home that interest you and then accept the one that you like and cancel the rest.

I am an agent, but I am a homeowner first. I have purchased homes in California, Hawaii, and Portugal. Let's talk Real Estate. Let me know if I can be of any help.
