Compared to most placed in Indianapolis, Imperial beach is way more expensive.
For example a 3 bedroom home with 13oo sf, will run you about $2200-$2400.

I think the same thing in Indy would run you about $1000. ... more

There are way too many variable that could come into play with these projects to estimate them like this. You should just have a few contractors come out to give you a quote. That way they can see everything they need to to give you an accurate estimate. It will also give you a chance to meet with them so that you can decide who you would want to hire. Ultimately this shouldn't be too big of an issue, but you won't know for sure until you find out.

I can't say it's "typical" but it's not uncommon anywhere. A landlord is not only trusting tenants to pay rent monthly, but to take care of their home and their investment. You can shop around for other rentals that may require less documentation. Most will require a credit and background report. They may also confirm employment. ... more

The number you're seeing isn't the public record amount. The listing is only letting yon know that there was some activity that affected the public record and prompted a listing. The Zestimates are rarely reflective of market value estimates. Neither agents nor appraisers use consumer real estate sites for real estate transactions. To keep tabs on market activity, or to look for homes to buy, establish a relationship with an agent. We can send you listings showing market activity for areas you're interested in, and give you up-to-date information.

My husband is an Imperial Beach native, although we live in Iowa now. We still have family in the area. It is a lovely area if you enjoy the beach. My thoughts are that it is like most California beach towns. In today's world you have to be aware of your surroundings. If we were in your position we would be heading to IB! Wishing you the best in your retirement! ... more

Another idea would be to check with the local association of REALTORS to see if they could help you track the information you are looking for. Hope this helps!

Carl Snyder answered:
The short answer to this question is that it can only be answered accurately by an experienced mortgage banker or broker with your completed application in hand. Let's assume an FHA loan for the moment. Generally, for a sole proprietorship, income from your last two years 1040's minus unreimbursed business expense is the income figure used. If the business is a corporation, partnership, or "S" corporation, business tax returns for two years are required, unless all of these are true: 1. The individual 1040's shows increasing self-employment income. 2. Funds to close do not come from business accounts. 3.The mortgage is not a cash-out refinance.
Feel free to call for further clarification or guidelines for FNMA-FHLMC programs.

Listing agent can determine that for you . Luxury homes are on market longer than average home in $150K range.

Many factors are involved.

You can have a ugly home with bidding wars sold in less than 24 hours, have the perfect home on market for years
