The apartment I have listed is perfect for you. I am moving to another house because my husband and I want to have children and we need more space. We are subleasing the apartment we are on right now for the rest of our lease which is 5 months. You can renew later if you would like but in your case I assume you will just move to your new house! check it out and let me know what you think. ... more

My question is why don't you like any houses on the market right now and what markets are you looking at? It's absolutely a great time to be a landlord in the Orlando area and it's going to get even better with all the Puerto Ricans moving here due to the terrible damage caused by Maria to their homeland. Happy to go over your investment goals with you. Click on my picture, check my references, and contact me. ... more

Over half my business this year has been vacation properties and they've all been in Windsor Hills. It's location can't be beat, less than 2 miles from Animal Kingdom. Amenities and reputation are top notch. No CDD unlike all the new resorts going up to the south and west.
That saves you thousands a year on your tax bill. Prices for 5 beds start in the low $300's. If that is more than you've planned on then Windsor Palms, half a mile southwest of Windsor Hills is a good alternative. I've sold there as well.
Check my references here on Trulia and contact me directly.

I've had numerous Canadian investors get mortgages here in the US. They have used RBC USA, TD Bank, and BMO Harris. Of the three, I'd lean towards RBC because they will underwrite you as a Canadian, but all three can get the job done. ... more

Check out rentals in St. Cloud. Should be close enough and your dogs are less likely to be a problem there.

The owner has filed both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies in recent years. The house has become an eyesore since the owner inherited it, and there is a long list of county code violations…

An excellent cautionary tale. You always want to get a lien search, never know what you might find.

Half my family is from B-more. I do not blame you for wanting to get the heck out of there asap !

You can have crab cakes from G & M Restaurant overnight mailed to you, can go see them Os when they play the Rays and the beaches are a lot better than Oshen City, Meri-lin, minus hair spray hunnies!

Consider a 75% LTV purchase loan with closing costs paid and buy property now.

We are going to be buying a new home soon and I want to see what they have to offer.... but I'm a little concerned with all the bad reviews... but our refi process was awesome ... more

Nobody can help you save. The easiest way to save is to find a job making more money or get a 2nd job. Also cut your expenses. In the meantime, rent.
