Danny Der answered:
Hi Lauren,

Do you have a recent appraisal of the property? what is the date of the "last sale price"?

Do you have any Comp's (sold, active and pending) within 2 months and half a mile radius of the house? If you are dealing with a real estate agent, he/she should be able get you these comparables, thus giving you the true value of the property.

House value changes with time and neighborhoods. Its important to know what you offer is a good deal for you.

I am a "Private Money" lender, I am a member of a private money network, I or one of my associates can fund you if the numbers on your deal is good, regardless of your credit rating or past history.

Please email me with details of your purchase, how much are you going to offer? How much downpayment ? How much time (when is closing date)?

I can help you analyze the deal, if the numbers are good, we can fund the property very quickly.

I would start with talking to the real estate agent you're working with. If they can't answer that, and I don't know why they wouldn't be able to, I'd go to a credit union.

I looked over your earlier question and answers for this property; do you have any money to put into the deal?
I would be willing to discuss options for funding your deal, but I need to know all the details of the complex...location, occupancy rate, rent rolls, number of units livable vs non livable, rehab costs if known, ect. I am a member of a few investor networks that could help you fund this deal if the numbers make sense. Email me your contact info at

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

I recommend that you talk first to your real estate agent. They know the people that are good.

If not, I can suggest a couple of people.

Good luck!

I'd start with Google and see what pops up. It's a tough market to get a regular loan in, let alone a hard money loan.
A friend of mine might be able to help you. Give him a call.

Jerry Cislo

He does regular mortgages but might be able to hook you up with a hard money lender.
Tell him I told you to call.

Hi Ericas626,

If your Mother In Law just wants her name off the house (Title/Deed), you can just do a Quit Claim Deed. However, if she wants her name off the mortgage(s), you will need to refinance in your name only.

Tim Moore answered:
It would make no difference how you bought it, the fact you did is all that's important. The new buyers will get a mortgage on the property and it will be up to that lender if they will allow the mortgage or not. I would imagine there is no problem as long as it appraises and is up to codes. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
Karl a hard money lender could charge 12-18% interest and the loan is only short term. It could be as little as a year you would have to refinace. A hard money lender is good for a short term loan with a definate plan to get out of it by selling or refinancing, if you can not get a mortgage now, the chances in a year are just as slim. They also require a large amount of money down usually 20 to 30%. You could be out your money and face huge fees and teh loss of your building in a year. You should research the companie sthat do church financing or are there any neighborhood stabilization programs in your area. Explore everything first. good luck with working things out ... more

Why would you want to do that? I would talk to an attorney. As a woman, I would want to make sure my name was on the house, in case anything happens to the marriage.
