I would be delighted to assist you and work with many first time home buyers. Living in the downtown area for many decades there are several recommendations I would like to make to you.
Prices are going up and in $120-$180K range there is alot of competition for home buyers. Almost all mine have experienced bidding war situations.
Do you have a preapproval yet. You will need this before viewing any properties as once you see something you like an offer must be made immediately or you will lose the opportunity.
I have several first time home buyer morgage specialists to refer if it would be beneficial.
Please reach out to me if you would like more details. I look forward to assisting you on this exciting time in your life.
Kind regards,

They are not easy to come by especially not in that price range. Many buyers returning to the marketplace after short sales or foreclosures are also looking for properties with owner financing. I have several buyers looking for similar situations in Jupiter.

Any sellers willing to finance out there??

Good luck!!

Michael Emery answered:
As for repairs, you can ask but their standard answer is the property is sold 'as is'. They may make repairs if it's discovered to be a safety issue - but there's no guarantee. All you can do is ask.

As for appliances, with the purchase of most if not all foreclosed homes the lender/owner will refuse to sign any personal property agreement which is where any existing appliances would be listed. As far as they're concerned if the the appliances are working and in the house on the day of closing, then they are considered a gift. Otherwise they will make no guarantee about appliances being in the house on closing day nor would they buy appliances.

If you need cheap appliances, consider

Hello Liza,
Good for you. You are asking the right questions. You should start now, looking for an agent.
Do your homework, the internet, friends, neighborhood, ask anyone you know of that has sold or bought a home in the past 6 to 12 months. This is a good place to start.
Most agents/Realtors have solid information of locating a loan officer or company ou in that will help you in your process. If there are any questions or you need any phone numbers please call or email.
Thank you,

Susanna Malmgren-Grubb PA answered:
There are several options for international mortgages. Generally, if you get a line of credit in your country of origin your % down and interest rate will be much lower.

Also, you need to decide if you are buying the property as an individual or a company. This will have huge implications especially for your family.

One of the international local mortgage brokers I work with is Michael Schwartz 561-371-5625.

Good luck!!

Ron Thomas answered:
The answer to this can be all over the map:
The Owner's objective/goals can be the biggest factor;
* are they trying for Tax avoidance?
* do they want to maximize the rent by updateing the place and keeping it up?
* do they want to maximize the profit by not putting a penny into it that they don't have to?
* what is condition of the property now; does it need work or updating?
* what do the Comp's look like?

There are many factors; no simple answer.
