Since there are other factors involved in determining mortgage qualification, for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer, all else would really be just speculation; be aware that a mortgage pre approval letter is necessary to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

No Sir, you should have not made your original remark. You should have not responded at all. Your response should have been the delete key. If you do not have any contribution to provide just be SILENT. I will not follow this question anymore since I can not really tell you in this forum what I really want to respond to you with. Oh, now I will answer more old questions and hopefully you will just hit the delete key.

See ya…………….

You have good answers here but most importantly is that if you are not experienced in buying property you MOST definitely need to hire a Buyer's agent. A buyers agent works for you and your best interest. This type of agency protects you as a buyer. Georgia is a dual agency state and by that I mean an agent can represent both the buyer and the seller. Now my question for you is this, If you want the best possible price to pay why would you deal with the sellers agent when they already have a contract with the seller to get the highest possible price for their property?

Once you have selected your buyers agent they can assist you with the form of purchase and the type of purchase and the best way to buy.

Hope this helps.

It depends on the properties that the LLC is buying. Ther are plenty of lenders who will lend to an LLC on multi family and commercial properties. The down payment needs to make the deal cash flow. Debt Coverage ratios need to be 115-125.
If you need private money or loans call 800-640-8798,
My investors make deals happen.

Daniel Klein answered:
Your foreclosure lawsuit and your bankruptcy are two seperate problems.
The foreclosure lawsuit is based on the mortgage not being paid a minimum of 6 months. When your boyfriend filed bankruptcy, he would not have included both your and his debts, as he is not on the mortgage. But these questions are bankruptcy attorney specific, and without any further information on your specific case, there is little else to say. ... more

Guys first you must have a good understanding of what procuring cause means, agents often speculate and look at this issue from their side. I showed a property which they eventually bought, even if it wasn't through me so I need to get paid. A buyers agency agreement is always a good idea to have, every agent should use them I am a big advocate of this, it is also a bilateral agreement however you must have a good understanding of procuring cause.

Just like most agent will tell you that finding a property and putting an offer in on it is just the beginning, that statement holds true with the meaning for procuring cause as well. See my last blog entry below for more details, it seems nobody is reading it.

If you're not near the property, your agent should preview for you and if there is no media available for the property, have them take a short video and upload for you to view.
