Craig Martin answered:
I have been working in the Hammond Area as a Realtor since 2000. Home prices have appreciated and as you probably know right after Katrina the home prices went up dramatically. Then the Great Recession happened and we had a moderate pull back. For those that bought right after Katrina we are getting back close to that range. The Great Part and Sometimes not so great part is that we see a steady 3-5% increase yearly and even during the Great Recession we didn't see a huge fall off in value. Good or Bad that would be your call. If you need help with anything know The Martin Team is here for you.

The best place to find the answer to your question is just call the assessor's office. They are great at giving you the exact information. Just give them the address and they can give you the year built and the latest assessment data on the property. There number is: (985) 345-6226

Hope this helps. If I can do anything for you don't hesitate to call or email:

Amount paid for the property the last time it sold. In the case of Pre-Foreclosure and Auction properties, this amount represents the amount the owner in default paid for the property when he or she originally purchased it. In the case of REOs, this usually represents the winning bid amount at the auction and, therefore, the amount the foreclosing lender needs to recoup to break even. ... more

There are still some lenders out there willing to work with less than perfect credit if you are borrowing a low Loan-to-Value.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
I purchased my home using a 203K loan. My house needed a LOT of work. The process was a bit more detailed and took longer but it was worth it. The FHA inspector put a layer of professionalism between myself and the contractor that made me feel very secure. I had th fire my first contractor and find another one and still, overall, my experience was very good. I recommend 203K loans to my clients all the time. I think it is a terrific loan product to help buyers to get into a home with an FHA backed loan so they still only need a low down payment, if the home needs some repairs. It's perfect for short sales and foreclosure homes. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
Plenty of sellers will consider lease-options or similar. Frankly, I haven't seen many listings saying the sellers won't consider it. It's true that most make no mention of it. Very often, you have to create that situation.

Here's a link to a blog I wrote on how to find lease-option possibilities: http://bit.ly/findaleaseoption

However, first check with a lender to make sure that your assumption is correct . . . that you won't qualify. It's possible you might. Or it's possible that your credit is close enough that it'd only take 4 or 5 months or so to get it to where it needs to be. So: Do that first. Then, if you wish, pursue lease-options.

Hope that helps.
