Guy Gailliard answered:
Greetings Amit,

I would be happy to answer your question about investing in Detroit. The best buying method for this market is with cash. Houses sell fast here and you can get great discounts when working with cash versus financing. Many of the properties are priced well below what you would be able to finance.

Our company works with many international and local investors looking to get a great return on their money and better yet, we do all the work. If you would like me to answer any more questions or you want more information, please free to e-mail me at or call me directly at (248) 215-2897.

Looking forward to speaking with you soon,
Guy R. Gailliard

what is the address of the home so I can look it up for you. But overall, prices have come down a lot in this area because when the auto industry had hard times lately, many people lost their jobs and property values plummeted.

Email me the address of teh home and I can answer your question a bit better.

Thank you,

Elias Realty

First off, no one knows what the economy in general--or housing in particular--will be like in 10 years. Even I wouldn't hazard a guess, and I'm pretty willing to make guesses about 2, 3, or 4 years out.

A few quick thoughts, though. First, in a lot of areas, that bubble's already been paid for. At least largely. Yes, prices could decline some more. They likely will in some areas, though in other areas values appear to be rising nicely. I don't expect further declines for the next 10 years.

Now, there is a problem coming up in a few years with the expiration of the extended Bush tax cuts. But that's much sooner than 10 years.

Similarly, there are major problems overseas. The Greek debt crisis, for instance. Problems in Italy, Spain, and Portugal. But those are here now. And while they'll persist for years to come, I don't see those coming to a head in 8 or 9 years.

There are problems people generally haven't recognized. The Chinese economy is slowing. It's still strong, but not as strong, and prospects are for further weakening. Watch for that to become far more noticeable in 3-5 years.

Problems in the Middle East: Israel and Iran, for instance. But the way that's going, if there's a crisis it looks like it's more like 6 months to 2 years away than 9 or 10 years from now.

The problems we'll be facing in 10 years--and, yes, I'm sure there will be some very serious problems--probably aren't even on the radar screen at the moment. Maybe Muslim uprising in the former Soviet Union. Maybe an entirely new political movement somewhere in South America. We may have a large peacekeeping force in Mexico or elsewhere in Central America. It's hard to say.

OK: Have I scared you enough? Didn't really mean to. But the point is: The world is constantly changing. Unfortunately, there will always be wars and crises.

If I'd been in your position, I'd probably have done just what you did and go with a 10/1 ARM. Really. But different people have different levels of comfort. If you "dearly wish to get rid of the house," then do so. Probably not today, since you bought so recently and just refinanced. But if that 10-year horizon worries you, set a goal of selling in, say, 5-6 years. You can't control the market, so you really don't know what the house will be worth. But have a Philadelphia Realtor you trust send you a CMA maybe every 6 months. Once the value of the property is high enough, sell.

Hope that helps.

Brendan S. answered:
I should mention that i'm looking for a single family home with 2000sq ft or more itself, before the CH even comes into the picture. I currently reside in a large loft condo in downtown Boston which fits criteria, but i'm finding trouble locating something that fits my needs in a house. Perhaps i should consider a house with a bit more land, and build a structure on that land?

Anything else i'm missing?

David Tapper answered:
Most of the agents on this forum will tell you the first thing you should do is get pre-approved for a loan so you will know what you qualify for and also what you can afford.

You may be qualified for more money than what you are comfortable paying for so make sure to ask how much your payments will be.

You should also find an agent to work with. The best way other than this forum is to get a personal referral from a friend, relative or co-worker.

One of the most important things you need to find out is if you communicate well with your agent, because the buying process could take months. Don't work with an agent who makes you feel like you "HAVE" to make a decision.

Lastly, the home should sell itself. Your agent should be there as an advocate for you, to make sure you get the proper inspections, negotiate the price and navigate the contract.

If you need some information on first time home buying, feel free to email me and I will send you an item of value that will explain the process.

Actually, Section 8 does have a program for their clients to purchase houses on some their housing programs. Contact them and see if you can be approved.
All my best,

If you have section 8, the issuing authority should have a list of landlords that they work with. I suggest you contact either Orlando Housing Authority or Orange County Housing. Both of those agencies should be able to help you. ... more
