Walter 'Skip' Kersten answered:
IMO the reason to buy now is interest rates. They currently remain near historical lows. With the economy improving there is talk that the Fed will have to begin to raise rates some time in the future. It is best to lock in 30 year money now.
Good luck,

Distressed sales (REO and Short Sales) will require either proof of funds or pre-approval letter from a lender. FHA, VA, or any other conventional lending program should make no difference. I'm currently working with several buyers purchasing foreclosures or short sales and would love to answer any more questions you have. Feel free to call or email anytime.

Rather than have a listing agent call you -- -especially since there are so many people looking for decent rentals -- you are probably going to be served faster and better if you engage a Property Management Company specializing in Fremont rentals

You can check out the posts on Craigslist where many property managers post...then pick one or two companies you would want to work with.

Good luck.

Moonridge is a nice quiet area. Be sure not to rent in Big Bear City especially Sugarloaf, it is a very bad area. I own a four unit condo just below Snow Summit, when I have a vacancy I will e-mail you just in case you have not found a house by then and am open to condos by then. ... more

Barry Shapiro answered:
If you are buying as an investment property, you will need 25% down. The lender will only factor in (calculate) 75% of your anticipated rental income. That's because they factor in a 25% vacancy factor. Be sure you pay close attention to the HOAs, as sometimes rentals are not allowed for a year or so. Also, the HOA fee can affect your cash flow. The good thing is that Uncle Sam (IRS) provides for tax advantages in leveraged long-term investment properties. You can depreciate the building, write off the interest, deduct for repairs, and even deduct the property taxes and insurance + HOAs. Consult with a tax advisor to discuss your particular situation. Contact me for you free copy of 'Millionaire Real Estate Investor', written by Gary Keller, the founder of Keller Williams Realty. Keller Williams just so happens to be the largest real estate company in the U.S. -- I've owned 5 rentals myself, so you should consider working with an agent that has already been around the block in relation to long-term real estate investments. Good luck! ... more

Hi Julie,

Since you're the buyer, your agent can't contact Chase - only if your agent is also the listing agent. Chase will only talk to the seller and their agent (the listint agent). Now, if your agent is also the listing agent, have them contact the negotiator at Chase every week if they're not hearing anything. If your agent is NOT the listing agent, have your agent contact the listing agent weekly and ask them to contact the negotiator at Chase.

It doesn't hurt to make a connection with a real estate agent in the area early in the process. You can start your market research now by being set up in an automatic search so that you can see what prices are for the type of home you desire. You should get serious in your search approximately two months prior. Many landlords and agents submit their listings about 60 days prior to vacancy.

Happy House Hunting & welcome to No. VA.,

Steve Shalaby answered:
I can tell you that having experience in both markets, I cannot say that one is preferrable over the other. There is a demand for clean rentals in both places (both annual and seasonal renters). If you'd like to take a look at what is out there, just give me a call and let me know what your search criteria is (price, location, size, etc...). I'll create a comprehensive search for you that will reveal all the properties which match your criteria. Then if you like one, we'll make an appointment to see it in person.

Until then, have a wonderful day!

I would recommend to rent a place until you built up your credit. You also need to study an area you would like to live.

Andra Brewer answered:
A lot of this is based on where you buy the condo for the rate of return. It varies throughout town. There are opportunities under the $1.2 mark, but again all dependent on what you want to do, i.e. repairs, quality of renters, etc.

Brett Gordon answered:
Institutional investors, investment funds, REITS are buying up multifamily properties as well as large numbers of single family houses to build out their portfolios. Institutional investors used to look for 10 CAPs or above but there are some that will now go as low a 6 CAPs. Institutional investors are one of the biggest challenges to private investors and regular home owners in the Vegas area. There is too much money going after too few assets. Hence the prices in the Vegas area have gone up dramatically and the ROIs have come down.

Depends on the type of loan; FHA loans require a minimum of 3.5% down; therefore visit with any licensed loan officer, be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

May I suggest our interactive website This website can also be uploaded as a mobile version so you can see what's available on your smartphone including video tours of the houses, condos and apartments in which you have interest. This same interactive site allows you to apply online, assist you with our lease documents and get you moved in to your new home. Later you will have a secure place to pay your rent online and thereby never have a problem with late rent penalties. If you have a maintenance issue you can communicate the same way. We provide personal resident care with technological convenience.As you can imagine selections in the price range you mention get a lot of interest and get rented very quickly.

After you have gained some insight from our website please give FBS a call. Our closest office is our San Diego North County Office. It is minutes from your neighborhood of interest. We have helpful professionals that specialize in your rental customer needs. Phone number is 858-487-4004.
Good luck. Neil
