If you want to own a home, you should build your credit. Even with a lease purchase, the home owner will want some indication that you are able to make the payments and honor the lease purchase agreement financially. I suggest meeting with a professional that can help you with a plan to build your credit. Best of luck in fulfilling your dreams! ... more

My buyers agent responds within an hour and works for me literally 24x7. To draft up an offer he takes no more than 2-3 hours. Anything that takes more than 12-24 hours then you need to to find yourself another agent. ... more

You have two choices, price it low and sell as is or get some help and fix things up. My general formula for my buyers is that whatever I estimate the cost of doing the work is doubled, to offset the "hassle factor".
Selling as is will attract investors who are looking for bargains they can fix up and sell for a profit. If you have the funds or ability to get this done yourself, you can get the return.
Just remember whatever you do, it's for resale. Get some help with suggestions and direction on colors, changes etc. Sometimes what a home owner sees and wants to attack first isn't what the buyer will see first. My wife & I like to do pre-listing consultations as early in the process as possible. This way, we can help our seller's get the best return on their money for the least amount of work.

Jackson Willis answered:
I think you definitely could make the investment back if you do things the right way, but there isn't really a guarantee on that. I would suggest talking to a realtor or someone who does appraisals to find out how much value you could expect to add with these upgrades. Hopefully you can find all the information you need so that you can make the most educated decision about this.

Happens many times during transition...found it helpful to have your closing attorney draft a per diem agreement with the owner's attorney (or owner directly if applicable)...Some owners may not like this because of mortgage commitments not happening as expected and the deal being delayed of falling through. I as the seller want to be 100% sure if the buyer if getting financing that it WILL happen and they are approved! Tom Hinz ... more

thinz answered:
Generally, I would always modify an agreement to allow for the possibility of me finding a home on my own and not being obligated to the agent UNLESS there was some kind of direct or indirect relationship to my finding the home. For example, if the agent told me about a street that would be good to check out, and I found a home FSBO and bought it, I feel the agent would be due some kind of compensation. There are many "what if" examples, but common sense should take charge here...not greed. Tom Hinz ... more

Christopher Fritts answered:
It certainly is possible, however, homeowner's insurance laws differ from state to state, and policies vary widely from company to company. You should speak with a local insurance agent who would be better at answering your question. He/she can help you understand the laws in your state or jurisdiction. Good Luck! ... more

I like Annette's post... if a house stinks, I will not even stay inside long enough to check it out. Eliminate odors! However, you need to get them in the door first, so make sure your pictures are attractive!! Then work on curb appeal. If nothing else make sure it is very neat and clean. ... more
