Alisa the answer to that question could range anywhere from no to yes. There are so many factors that would figure in to the answer, that ultimately only the buyer can decide the best choice for them.

I say yes, definitely because prices now are between 1/3-1/2 of the home's previous market value or last sale price and interest rates are super low.

Yes, quite possibly. Wells Fargo has programs that will allow financing down to a 500 score (but the lower the score, the more down payment they require). They will also look at other items, like your debt to income ratio (how much you owe vs. how much you earn), payment history, ability to make a down payment and have required cash reserves, etc.

Give me a call if you'd like...I work in Clayton and Henry county mostly and would love to help you!

If you will share your expected monthly rental with me, Norman, I will email you some available homes in that price range there for lease. You may phone or email me at your earliest convenience. Good Luck!

Every county in California holds Sheriff's foreclosure auctions. Check with the Sheriff's office for timing. In my county (Contra Costa) they are held at 10:00AM and 1:30 PM Monday through Thursday. ... more

You can use your income for her application. Changing the work field should not affect her in any way.

Yes your wife should qualify on her own, because of your score. Rate and terms will be much more favorable, and you will get a loan you can keep.

NBW answered:
They start the home at a minimum reserve price. This is usually what the bank needs to recoup their money and any fees incurred, or at the very least, a good portion of it. If no one bids, then the home will go on the market just like any other home. Many times the reserve price is actually higher than the value of the home, so you won't see anyone bidding. I would recommend going to an auction, observing, and asking some of the bidders some questions. Most shouldn't mind giving you some helpful advice. ... more

Hello Frank,
I am seeing more and more small business going under weekly. I am in Cartersville, north of Kennesaw Ga. I am seeing and hearing large resturant chains are closely certain locations because people have cut back and are not eating out as much. There are becoming alot of empty commerical buildings on the market. We just had a group of Drs move out of a building we own. It has been on the market for 3 months to lease or purchase and we got an offer yesterday that is about 70% of listing price. This market is a killer unless your an investor buying up very low and sitting tight for a few years to come. I think from everything I am reading and seminars we are attending this is going to last well into 2011 and possibly longer. We know of at least 3 large national banks that will be closing their doors very soon. And there are more to follow. Clintion, Obama and McCain certainly have their work cut out for them. ... more

The HOA dues and any increases are dictated by the covenants of the community. Typically a 200% increase would probably not be allowed unless voted on and passed by the members of the association. In most bylaws that I have read it would take a 67% majority of all members to pass an increase like this. ... more
