There are various mortgage products in the market that can help. The FHA 203K plans allows financing repairs or rehab and the purchase of appliances up to $35,000. If you want further information, feel free to contact me at PRMG in Tampa,

Not having any luck finding anyone willing to manage it, that is. I would like to understand my options, or how I can smooth the process of becoming a first time landlord.

Please note that if your property is inactive on Trulia, we do not have the option to add new photos. However, we do have the ability to remove your home photos. You may send your request via the link below.

If you intend to put your home on the market, you or your agent will have the ability to create a new listing and post new photos. This new listing will then override the property page with the outdated data.

You asked this question in the FL forum, so am assuming the property you are selling is in FL. Contact a local FL real estate attorney asap to discuss what options you have and consequences should you try to cancel your contract. Be sure to share your listing agreement with your attorney as you may owe your listing agent a full commission if you cancel since he/she brought you a buyer who was ready, willing and able to purchase your property. ... more

Check on Zillow. They have a rental estimate that's pretty good in my experience.

Don't waste your time - First off you will not get any brochures or details of the community or any of the home layouts to take home with you. You will get a 45 to 1 hour wasted sales script of their company and the area that you can easily look up online. It is worse than sitting through any timeshare scripted sales pitch or a scam telemarketer sales script. you have no choice of cabinets or counter-tops - as there are no upgrades unless you opt for their luxury models as they call them. Not much different than the cookie cutter homes where every home will have the same cabinetry and counter-tops. floors etc. The price start at $220,000 - LGI homes look more like low income homes - even Habitat for Humanity homes have better quality and options. You will feel trapped as they bring out their notebook and have to go through each step of their script without ever getting the chance to look at any home features. After you do - thats when you will realize what a waste of time you sat there with the slow talking sales script these people force you to listen to before seeing a sample of their cheap crappy homes. For $5000. more you will realize all the better homes built by reputable builders close by and be given all the brochures without the pressure sales LGI homes does. ... more
