Sue Archer Reynolds answered:
You can try some local attorneys as well as the title companies. There will be factors involved that you aren't describing. I'd try Consumer Title. If you want to speak to a few attorneys that do closings, and offer the title insurance, just let me know. I've got quite a few that I work with. ... more

I have a number of well respected attorneys that can help you here in the Tampa area. I can't quote their fees though, because I don't know them . if you'd like to contact me directly, I send a list to you and you could call them to find out. All are good, and if it's filling out paperwork, I can't imagine it's expensive at all. ... more

Dena Karlin answered:
Hello Shomari,

An "Acquisition Fee" is an amount charged to compensate for expenses incurred in arranging a lease. These types of fees typically include charges and commissions paid for the acquisition or purchase of property, such as closing costs, real estate commission, and development/construction fees. The amount can be paid up front or added to the loan amount and paid over the term of the loan.

Please let me know if you have any further questions I can help answer for you :)

Alma Kee answered:
If you're looking in the under $70k price range you may have to offer a cash incentive to get a Realtor's attention.

HUD is pretty strict on acceptable price guidelines so if you're thinking you can get a "steal" on a HUD then you may be spinning your wheels.

Also if you're not buying with ALL CASH and under $75k then there are even fewer Realtors willing to donate their time. Find a newbie that wants to practice on you.

I would image EVERY full time realtor works for a broker that is authorized to submit HUD bids.

Good luck!

Bryan, There are homes at this price point, however, it would be best for you to personally evaluate if the home works for you.

Typically investors buy homes as rentals using a rule of thumb if they would live in the property themselves.

Best regards,
