Michelle Yoo answered:
Ms. Angelma,

I'm only assuming that you're talking about renting since a non-financial background check wouldn't matter to a mortgage lender. What I do know is that Madison is very tenant friendly even despite some changes made to landlord-tenant laws by the state.
There are multiple resources in print and online that will show you what's available for rent. "Good neighborhood" means different things to different people. Typically, I like to ask a beat cop about certain neighborhoods since they are nowhere near bound to restrain their opinions about areas as Realtors are. Good luck.

Michelle Yoo answered:
This solution is not for everybody, it's just another angle to look at your situation. I had a friend that bought a run-down, distressed property and during the few years she lived there, she slowly fixed and updated the majority of the house. The updates/repairs/improvements were so vast that she was able to re-sell in a few short years at a profit.

Again, I stress that this is not always an option. Many factors go into whether a house is a viable candidate for a medium term flip and sell. Please conduct more research if you are interested in this option. Good luck.

Can you elaborate? It depends. Your mortgage monthly payment is usually only principle and interest. However, property taxes and insurance can be collected by you monthly and paid on your behalf in your monthly mortgage billing. ... more

You're right! It is always helpful to have pictures. Most listings do have pictures, but sometimes there are circumstances where they haven't been posted, yet. Let me know if I can help you out. I would be glad to take some pictures for you or track them down if they exist. ... more

Maria Cipollone answered:
First, you need to understand your loan to value ratio. The LTV is the difference between the amount of your loan and your home's value. It is easy to calculate your LTV. Simply divide your loan amount by the value. For example, if you borrow $135,000 for a house value at $150,000 , your LTV will be 0.9 or 90 percent.

Also remember, that you will have some expenses during this process. Talk to a mortgage broker that can review your documents and advice you properly.

Best of Luck,

Maria Cipollone
