From an every-day point of view - working with the IRS is slow and difficult to get them to change speed. And, it is ironic that you are dealing with another government giant in Fannie Mae. I am assuming that the problem that you are experiencing has to do with getting financing for the purchase. It might be faster to look at changing your lender. Search for a portfolio loan or possibly a short term loan until the IRS problem is solved. Make sure to work with an experienced tax attorney - you don't want to deal with the IRS solo. Good Luck. ... more

Sounds suspicious to me!! I would not put up any more money myself, if anyone needs to provide the $10k for closing, it should be the title company that was responsible for it's safe-keeping. You may want to start looking for a new attorney, in case the current one doesn't make this right. Best of luck in your transaction...Jim ... more

Joseph J. Miranda PA answered:
Yes! Why? Because when a renter knows you are the owner they also know that "the buck stops with you". They know you are the decision maker and you are likely not accountable to anyone else (except maybe your spouse or partner). It is much more difficult to enforce your policies. A good property manager is the middle man who is ultimately accountable to you and tenants understand that. They know that the manager only has as much power as the owner gives them. They also are a probably much better at it than you and help you leverage your time. ... more

The number one mistake is not screening tenants properly. Nothing will hurt your bottom line more than a bad renter.

Chad Gray answered:

Here are three great resources for checking a neighborhoods's crime information:



3. If you are searching for properties, there is a Community Reports option on my website that provides valuable information about a specific zip code including schools, median income, population and crime statistics. Search for property on my website and you will see the Community Reports option next to the results and property description pages.

I hope this is helpful!

John Bourassa answered:
Renovations will surely increase values of properties but there are many factors that will affect increases in values after a renovation. Also, one must understand the expectation of those increases of values.
1- Best buy: Buying a property at the right low price and renovate it is the way to do it but the catch is to know which property to buy at the right price. That is an art. Most people think they can do it but they fail.
2- Neighborhoods. Not all neighborhoods hold the same value trends: For instance, properties on the east side of Federal Hwy can host eclectic properties (an old 1955 rancher house on a canal, completely redone, value in an average of $1.2 to $1.5 million next to a newly built 2 story mac-mansion valued at $3.5+ millions). But there are neighborhoods west of Federal Hwy where property values have to remain fairly consistent. There is no such a thing as a $300K house next to a $700K house.
3- Long-term investment: Now-a-day, we are seeing again many flip properties but those properties were bought by professional investors who, somehow, bought chunk of toxic assets directly from lenders at only a few cents on the dollar. Then, they have fluffed up those properties and turn-them around for a nice quick profit. But, for the very small investor (the "only one or two property owner") who want to buy a fixer upper and fix it, that's OK as long as the buyer is willing to live in the property for a few years and eventually sell it at a moderate to handsome profit.
Quality of improvements: People can do a Home Depot, do-it-yourself, low budget improvements in a house in Coral Ridge while a neighbor on the same street with a similar house may have hired professionals to improve the property from A to Z; that property can fetch $200K more than the other one. However, the Home Depot special guy is convinced (due to pride) that his improvements are just as nice as the neighbors and he will have the audacity to ask nearly the same price as the neighbor's, and house is not selling, even after reducing the price two or three times. HELLO!!! But that's human nature.

It is crucial that you shop around for a mortgage broker that can review all your financial status, debts, credit history and employment history in order to give you the right advice now to see if you are in the right path to get your mortgage loan next year.

Best of Luck,

You should start by sending an eviction notice. If that doesn't work, get the sheriff involved.
