How to Sell Your Home

1. Prepare your home for sale
2. Find the Market Value for your Home by researching comparable sales, which have similar upgrades or improvements as yours, to get a more accurate valuation for your house
3. Analyze the current market condition of your area to determine a pricing strategy based on your needs.
4. Utilize an aggressive marketing strategy to expose your listing to as many prospective buyers locally, nationally and internationally
5. Negotiate the terms of a contract with Buyer's that are willing, able and capable of purchasing.
6. Ensure all mandatory disclosures are provided and documented.
7. Close escrow on the sale
8. Receive your proceeds from the sale

I recommend utilizing a good Realtor to Navigate you through the steps.

You shouldn't pay anything to Zillow. It's a free service and listings should appear here through your MLS's IDX feed.

I would reach out to a local mortgage broker. Most brokers have access to either lenders with no overlays or Alternative documentation programs.

A foreclosed property is one the bank has taken back and is now selling. A short sale is one that the bank has not taken back yet. The seller is attempting to sell the home for less than what is owed on the property. If a seller takes your offer on a short sale, the bank will need to approve guarantees.

You can find a good price on a traditional sale also, so you should continue to consider those also, as long as they fit in your budget.

If you would like me to find some homes for you to look at, contact me.

Best of luck! Don't get discouraged. It is all worth it once you have the keys to your new home in hand:)

It does not concen you. If the borrower defaults and the tenant has a rent paid to a certian term the rental implied or existing agreement has standing and the rent is due. Got the flu! The matter does not concern you. I have a tenant for a client who stopped paying and his credit is now ruined .Fool! We reversed the trustee sale and pulic recirds did not reflect the change instaus! Tenant not beleive it. Fool. Don't worry about it!

Look forward and not behind.

This will be tough to do with professional management companies. You will have better luck maybe on craigslist. Try to find an owner that is not using a management company or that doesn't mind the negative rental history. ... more

Robert Adams answered:
Honestly there is a lot of different ways to calculate expenses and repairs on a investment property. Some people are very conservative in their estimates while other are more aggressive. Before purchasing a property you will know the fixed expenses and then you will have to calculate the variable expenses however you see fit. Vacancies and repairs are a wild card. I choose to calculate it more conservatively figuring high on expenses and low on revenue so that at the end of the year I have planned for the worst and can be happily surprised if the numbers come in better than expected vs the other way around.

Some people use what is called the 50% rule also. This is where you take the yearly rent collected and divide it by 50% for all expenses, repairs, and vacancies. Now that prices in Vegas have gone up considerably over the past few years this estimated 50% is less conservative but still a good rule of thumb. I would dig deeper into the fixed expenses once you have an actual subject property.

Right now in Vegas after calculating all of these costs you can typically plan on getting around 4- 5% CAP rate on your money. We work with a lot of investors here in Vegas. If you would like to discuss the market or your investment plan further please feel free to contact me directly. Either way best of luck with your investments!
