Well I think you are about 3 years to late in entering this market space and you may find it difficult to find foreclosure properties at this time. You will be competing against a large number of investors all competing for fewer and fewer properties. In all of Pinellas County, with a population of about 1 million people there are a total of 83 REO/Bank Owned properties available. Most of these homes sell for above asking...but not all. The one's that stay on the market usually are not worth purchasing because of the expense of renovating relative to what the property can then sell for. Most agents will not work in this market space with investors any longer because the competition is so intense for these properties. ... more

How much time and effort are you going to put into the lawn care. Are you going to use a top notch fertilizer and is your equipment expensive to run? There are a lot of variables that come into play. I would see if you could give some people some quotes and seeing their reactions to them. ... more

Annette Lawrence answered:
When this property has new owners is it unknown what their intent for the property may be. Your current landlord is giving you a 'heads up' regarding future uncertainty. At this point you have the option of moving now on your own timeline or possibly at the mandate of the new owner or the bank who may want the property vacant.-------------You can make the decisions that will effect your life or let others make those decisions for you. Which do you prefer? ... more

You charge an arm and a leg!

Factor in labor to get it from where it's at and onto your trailer, disposal fees, gas, insurances, labor costs, as well as other business expenses such as phone... don't forget a profit.

Loretta Buckner answered:
All foreclosure prodceedings are a matter of public record, and can be researched in the civil court records of the county of the property. As long as you have a lease, you are protected from being evicted should the property be auctioned.

In fact, I am beginning to see some bank contracts which include clauses for investor purchase of occupied foreclosed homes--that was a new one on me!

Gerard Carney answered:
Unfortunately Mcgruff, the bank has a number of ways of coming back at you and many ways to ruin your credit without ever going back in front of a judge! You are not out of the rough as long as the bank holds a lien on the home or property! What excuse did the Judge deem as a deal breaker for granting the foreclosure to the bank? This one judgement will determine what kind of attack the bank will do next. You can be sure the bank will exhaust every possible effort before giving up! ... more

I agree with Jim. Don't enter a rental stuation in this market without the assistance of a qualified rental management company or agent who focuses on rentals. A bad rental situation could cost time, money and emotional stress. The old addage, "if it is too good to be probably is" should be taken seriously.

My company, Sarasota Home Realty helps connect renters and landlords. We know the market. If we can help, just give us a call.
