There is no precise way to answer your question; there are so many variables. Other household income and the level of that other income factors in. Bottom line: If you expect to earn income on investment properties, expect to pay taxes on the capital gains. For better answers, see and your own CPA. ... more

Foreclosure may not be the best bang for your $1000.00 out of pocket. The 203k requires more than $1000 out of pocket before you even buy. That does not include the down payment and closing costs. I have looked for those type deals myself with little success in the below 60,000 range. I have bought homes for 50,000 with 6,000 out of pocket, and $113,000 with $30.00 yes $35.00 out of pocket. ROI was better on the 50,000 but that was after adding another $7,000. For a live in buyer in the range you are looking at I have recommend clients look inot the Home Path and VHDA loan programs. This resulted in great results from my clients. $56,000 with 3,000 out of pocket. Repairs to move in under $2000.00. They do exist, depending on your credit and income levels. To much income and you may not qualify. If you are moving into the property for a year there should be no problem with your plan.
To get started contact me for lenders that can meet your needs.

I'm an investor in the Pittsburgh area as well. I was born and raised in the city so I am very familiar with the different markets in and around the city. I would like to talk more details about exactly what you are looking for. I'm currently looking for investment property myself (3-4 units) that I plan on living in one of the units as I'm fixing up my current house to sell in the fall. Perhaps you would be open up partnering up with something. It could be a win/win scenario as I would be able to manage the units while you are out of town.

I actually will be in the DC area this weekend but will be back in Pittsburgh the weekend of the 14th. Perhaps we should talk on the phone before we take the time to meet. Feel free to call me at 412.592.9360. If you get my voicemail, please leave your name and number and I will get back to you within 24 hours.

I look forward to talking to you,
