Steve Johnson answered:
DO you research for the neighborhood. Stable or declining neighborhood? Property condition is another factor. If it were me, I would pull out any carpet and put in tile or vinyl, so you are not replacing it as often. The other 2 factors is good credit screening of tenants and lastly good property management company that usually want a minimum of 15 percent per month to manage. If you are going to manage properties yourself and you have never managed properties be careful!

Good Luck and God Bless!

Bruce Lynn answered:
Yes..you are obligated if you win the bid.
You do have to put in earnest money as in normal HUD bid.
Inspections do not pass or fail. It's just a reflection of the condition.
You don't want to do an inspection on a home you don't own or control in my opinion.

There are very very few homes available in this program. Make sure you found a GNND house, not just a HUD home. Not all HUD homes qualify for the GNND program.

For example I only see one house that is current available on the GNND program in Tarrant County. You can see it here. Make sure your realtor is familiar with HUD bidding, is able to bid on HUD homes, and knows how to explain the GNND program to you.

The GNND homes are typically only available in targeted areas, and there are specific rules to bid on them.

A Realtor can assist you with this. Some offer their marketing services without property management services. I could offer this if I were in your area. Search online for Realtors with Rental listings and give them a call :) Good luck! ... more

Yanni Raz answered:
First of all dont get panic. You need to contact your bank BOA and let them know your situation, they will help you because if you will go to foreclosure they will loose a lot of money.

The second normally will get wiped out if you stop paying it, they will offer you some funny anount like: pay us only 10% of the amount and you'll be good to go.

Just dont go into foreclosure. worse case scenario is to short sale your property through a local real estate agent.

Good luck

Martina Lothert answered:
Zoomi,
I asume that you are not working with a REALTOR on this deal.
You should give us a little more details on the contract you are in with the builder.
Is there an option period, have you done inspections etc.?
You might still consider talking to a realtor to get a CMA for the area, even that you are already in a binding agreement with the builder.
The builder typicaly will not pay a comission to the realtor anymore and you might have to pay the comission for the realtor advice yourself but it might still be worth your money to do this.

Good luck

JIM
Well, a lot of this depends upon your current home value and the lien owed on it.
Have you refinanced it in the last few years?
[REFI]
To your knowledge, is your home currently in a declining market?
If it is then you may have trouble obtaining the value that you want.
To find answers to that question, maybe the best thing to do would be to contact an appraiser and ask that question. They can easily find an approximate value for you over the phone.
[PURCHASE]
In regards to the purchase, things would be a lot more flexible with a purchase in a declining market. This is a buyers market. Don't let anyone say differently to you.
What type of loan you get really depends upon whether or not you sell your present home first.

Your wife's income can also be used, SS disability, definitely a verifiable source of income. To use her income, she would also need to be on the loan.

I provide competitive national prime lending, and your credit score definitely fits into that category. You are welcome to call me directly 510.776.5875.
Best,
Patrick

What kind of restrictions are you looking for? I'd guess most of what you need could be gathered from the title company where you will close on your home. They will normally give these to you with the title search. ... more

Dallas Texas answered:
Deed restrictions are in most very standard, what are you trying to get accomplished. A builder if you dealing direct should be able to answer those questions. Most restrictions eliminate any type of additional building structures, "jungle gym" sets based on height, no boats/rv , fence not to exceed a certain height.

If you are dealing with a buyer you need to have an real estate agent who represents you. WE answer allot of problems between a builder and buyer in many instances buyer is at the lost. WE do offer a Dallas home buyer rebate program of up to 50% of our commissions restrictions do apply. Contact my office if I can provide you assistance. 972-699-9111

Where is your real estate agent? They should be able to furnish you that info. Or if you can determine the HOA management # then you can contact the HOA direct.
