Why take the risk when there are good options available?

1. Represent your client and allow the other party to be a customer.

2. Represent your client and refer the other party to another agent and obtain a referral fee. ... more

I would think that as long as the home remains your residence, it shouldn't be an issue. All that's required is that the buyer live in the property. From a practical point of view, however, how many friends are there? I wouldn't turn the place into a boarding house.

Hi Tracy, generally when you are shopping for a pre-approval, you will need to fill out the Loan Application that details your personal financial information. Your recent check stubs for proof of income, along with your latest W-2, and about 3 months of bank statements. If you have a recent credit report you can provide it to the loan officer so they know what they are working with.

Remember that it depends on your individual situation to get pre-approved for a specific type of loan.

Do you have a certain target date in mind for purchase your property?

Boheme Notice of Sale. This property is scheduled for a public foreclosure auction. A public foreclosure auction is scheduled when a homeowner in default does not stop foreclosure proceedings within a certain timeframe determined by state statute. Properties are typically auctioned in a public location, such as the local county courthouse, by an attorney or local public official. Auctions can be great opportunities to buy property below market value, but usually dont allow for property inspections and often require full or partial payment in cash depending on the auction process in your area.

"Creative financing" isn't what it used to be. Your best bet is to speak directly with several lenders. I can refer you to some really good ones. Please get your contact information to me, and I'll forward it to them. Once you've determined that your situation is feasible, it will be my pleasure to work with you toward finding that home. I look forward to hearing from you.

Your best course of action is to consult with several lenders who have the wherewithal to accommodate your objectives. I can refer you to two such individuals. Having worked with many investors, I'd be happy to locate appropriate homes that would work for you. There is no cost to your organization as buyers. Please forward your contact information. Best of luck with your endeavors. I look forward to hearing from you.

I think answers are going to vary, based on the fact that it becomes a subjective preference. Some folks find it really awesome when they see a closet that is meticulously arranged with NO clutter. If you are trying to show the vastness of the size, you could leave it empty. In either case, I think if you are strategically staging the entire house, but decide to leave the closet empty, it might look a bit odd.

Just my thoughts............

Hello Paula, I see you are looking to move from Detroit. I checked out the 2 questions you had on the property you are looking at for renting.

Gas stations, banks, grocery should be within around 3 to 5 miles. There are usually more stores available, but the known names are within that area.

The property you are referring to has been rented out. Have you already decidd to move here and if son when? Are you strictly looking for single family homes or are you also open to apartments?

If you need assistance (no fees charged to you), I would need to get some details on the budget, number of bedrooms, smoking preferences, if you have pets, date of move-in, etc., so I can guide you accordingly. Feel free to email or call on the contact listed below.

Al Geffon answered:
Can you let me know which property you're referring to? In any event, there are very few homes that an owner would be willing to finance ... most like to cash out and move on.

In the event we do locate one, you should be aware that most require a large down payment (usually 20% to 25%), the interest rate will be considerably higher (probably 6% or greater ... current bank rates are in the 3.5% range), and you will need to obtain financing to pay off the owner in three to five years (the "balloon"). With homes selling quickly, there doesn't seem to be a reason why an owner would elect to act as the bank ... unless there's something critically wrong with the property (bad foundation, structural damage, etc.).

I hope this explains matters a bit for you. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Regards ...

This is really a question for an attorney but I see no reason why you can't, once the probate period is over. You are always free to give away possessions.

Hi Nada, I see that you have posted several questions for investment purchase. Tell me a little more about what your plans are, so I can help you a little better. I answered your question on the 1 bedroom condominium, however, I see that you seem more interested in investing. I will be happy to meet with you when you are available or I can communicate by email or phone - just need to know what your goal is.
