Hi" My name is Joe Jimenez,. I am a Real Estate-Investor in San Jose Ca. ...Whom seeks properties where ever I can find a nice "Rehab" property in an area of demand.

Below is the link to Crime-Mapping which explains why there information on crime is the most current. Likely because there information comes directly from your state/city police crime records division.....

https://www.crimemapping.com/#video

Below is the direct link to Crime Mapping ,com: It's simple,..Just put in your address for real close view or zip code, then select your state and your local city police department. Once there" change the one week view to past 6 months which is max for history viewing... " BE READY TO SAY WOW""

As an investor I need to always know where to find the most current accurate information. I hope this helps all.. and keeps you aware of what going on in your neighborhood.

On a side note: Anyone with knowledge of a great property (for Sale) and in need of major improvements, Please email me at : BottomLineInvestments@gmail.com ( no caps required in email)

I do pay referral fees if we close sale on your referral... GUARANTEED" in writing..

If you're obtaining a loan, your lender will conduct an appraisal. Even though you're planning on putting 77% down... the lender wants to confirm that the property is really worth what you're paying.

With that large a down payment, it's possible they'll conduct a "drive-by" appraisal (just to determine that the house is really there!)... but my guess is that most lenders will still require one.

Hi Mark,
Yes, you can get an FHA loan, if credit score is between 500 and 580, but FHA requires 10 percent down payment.
Like your credit score is 580, so you need to pay 3.5 down payment.
Thanks!!

I understand your concern because it feels intrusive but lenders need to verify that the money for the gift deposit was not illegally received (drug dealer, robbery, etc.). Yes, lenders need proof in writing because without proof, it could mean the money was stolen or from drugs. ... more

Your correct about basements being the exception and not the rule in Texas. Your incorrect about why. The primary reason is that builders don't want to build them at all and for the obvious reason (don't have a clue how). Basements are all over the state from the Panhandle to Galveston, El Paso to Brownsville.

The soil being a problem is a myth like flying dragon and unicorns. Texas has nearly every type of soil indigenous of the entire US within it. For this reason alone you would have to ask where is it bad. Consider where you don't find a swimming pool in the state for that matter.

Can't build on caliche' or clay is another myth for actually it is the second best soil to build on for stability only second to bedrock. Once excavated if actually costs less to build it upon.

How do I know? I am a basement builder serving all of Texas for the past 15 years. We are the number one basement repair company serving all of Texas. After I wrote my book about basements I hoped these type of posts would stop and they mostly have for the most part.

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

You can do a rehab loan to get the money to purchase the home and do repairs.

They require as little as 3.5% down, there is even a way to include closing costs into the financing.

I can lend nationwide.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to contact me.

Thank You
Gregg Pomeroy
