if you have gotten a three day notice to pay or quit and tou stay past the third day, the landlord can start the eviction. This will cost you the price the lawyer charges which is $575 (our lawyer) and will come from your security deposit. You also run the risk of it going on your credit so if you are buying it's not a good thing.
Hope this is what you are asking about.

Hello Steven, if the agent whom you are working with refuses to show you a home, I would recommend speaking with him/her about it. If the listing agent has stopped allowing showings, it may be that the seller has ordered no more showings for a specific reason. ... more

Pretty simple. You need to get in touch with a lender. Be prepared with last 2 pay stubs, 2 months bank statements, and last 2 tax returns. Any agent on here can refer you a lender if you need a reference. Just ask.

Best of luck

Todd Foust answered:
I'm not a lender but my experience has been that the lender will want to use lower of the two parties credit scores if two people are going to be on the loan. Also, I think that FHA will require 2 years post short sale and a minimum FICO score of 680. Lastly, if he has a home being rented out, he'll probably have to show rental agreements with his tenants to avoid paying the the higher investment property interest rate.

So all that being said, it looks like he can be a cosigner if his credit is good after the 2 year mark and he can provide rental agreements to document that it isn't a primary residence. Until then, you may be on your own.

I'm sure a lender with better specifics will chime in here as there are often options and catches. These are just the broad strokes based on what I'm used to seeing.

Amir, ask your friend if He (or She) has ever preformed this Commercial Real Estate No-Money Down Transaction and if so have them walk you through the steps on how to do it. While I have done many real estate transactions structured without a cash down-payment, the purchaser was always strong in the 3 C's of underwriting: CREDIT, CAPACITY, COLLATERAL.

If you are currently unemployed, I can only hope that you have great credit and a large trust fund to balance out the lack of income.

On a positive note, you can look for properties owned by "don't wanter's" who will accept an owner financing arrangement that does not require any bank loan at all. But still you will need some money to repair such a property to a rentable condition. Most "don't wanter" properties tend to have physical or financial problems that need to be fixed before you can expect someone to rent them. If you can find such a deal, be careful of the price. Anaheim may be too pricey to get this deal to bring a positive cash flow. Stay open to one-to-four unit rentals, they are more abundant and easier to get a loan on should you want to refinance later.

You need to speak to a lender in your area. Or you can ask "Shane Milne" on Trulia. He's a very knowledgeable lender and will definitely be able to lead you in the right direction.

Thanks for your inquiry.

If you build a home, it might cost you more than just getting a bigger home.
Interest rated for puchase are so low... so You will really have to calculate constuction costs vs buying and selling cost.

I will be happy to assist you with this 'research'...

Hi Kent:
There is a good chance that if you sell now, you may see a slight 'loss' on the sale, as you know prices have dropped since 2009.

You can decide to sell or rent, depending on your short or long term goal.
Colony homes, with any other homes are selling briskly. Right now there is a shortage of homes forms sale. If you put your home for sale, it will definately sale, question is what are going to do after the sale, with the equity , are going to buy another one etc?
Rental market is strong as well.
You will have no problem with renting out as well at a great rates.
Please call me or email me with specifics so we can discuss fiurther and i can provide with more resources. No obligtion!

It's a legit real estate arrangement. The key is to have the right terms to protect yourself. Have a local agent help you review the deals available so you don't get caught in one-sided deals, which can happen even in legit offers. ... more

Jeremy Lehman answered:
Looks like mid $400's at least, give or take depending on the specifics. The market has really picked up, so that will certainly help. We're seeing quick sales, full price (or more) offers, multiple bids, etc. Comps are limited, so you may have to feel the market out a bit. The good news is, with low inventory like this, you can try something new.

Let me know if you need something more concrete.

Dear CheryL:
I always advise my clients to call the local police department and ask them about crime the area they want to live.
I have always found them to be helpful and knowledgeable which will put your mind at ease.
there are also crime maps for cities which show crime rates.
Do a little googling and see what you find.
Best regards,
