Hi Julie,

Trulia IS NOT an MLS. Trulia is a "data syndicator".

The best move you can make now is to team with a Realtor® in the target area you are searching so you have access to TRUE MLS information (and I highly recommend an automated search, which your Realtor® can provide).

If you plan on "going it alone" please review the following post:

You need to get a repair estimate from a likened contractor in order to determine the After Repair Value "ARV". You then need to get an appraisal who could give you the ARV and see if it comps in that area. Our buying criteria for a fix and flip if that's what your looking at is about 65 - 70% at the highest.

If you want to buy and hold to occupy or rent/lease you could possibly go for about an 80% ARV. But the LTV will have to make sense to the lender. If it's an FHA loan and an owner/occupy you could possibly go for a 96.5% loan.

Please stop watching the news it will only make you crazy :-). I work with several investors in the area and they buy more and more property every day. It's because they know we are "bouncing along the bottom". The damage is already done. It sounds like you still like the cabin. It's really nice up there right now. In 25 years it will certainly be worth more money. Renting it may be a good strategy if it's difficult to make the payments. If not, think of it like a boat. The math on a boat doesn't make sense but they sure are nice to own. ... more
