Depends on where in Fresno you want to invest, how you plan on managing the property and what kind of income you want to generate.

A quality home at $100,000 is going to be hard to find if the market continues moving upward in the Fresno area.

Have you considered multifamily units like a duplex or quad?

If I can help find you properties you could use for rental would you be ready to buy? Timing is everything right now, and my last 2 listings had quality offers within 24 hours of listing.

Hope this helped, and please feel free to contact me if I be of further assistance.

Because they want to. That shouldn't matter at this point if your wanting to buy the house. Reasons will be disclosed during the 17 days grace period after your offer is accepted. Get with an agent and write it up. ... more

Maria Gilda Racelis answered:
I am sorry but I am little bit confused about the details.

1) why can't the lender give you the loan? Is it because of appraisal issue? That the house is not appraised at or higher than the purchase price?

2) Or you don't have $5000 to come up for the closing? Is this on top of the 3% you asked from HUD when you bid?

Can you please provide more detais.

All the "Builders" use local sub-contractors; some good, some other-than.
Just like automobiles, no two houses are exactly alike.
Even with a NEW house, you should get INSPECTIONS.
And just like with a Pre-Loved house, you should use a Realtor to protect yourself. ... more

The very first thing to do is pull your credit report to find out why you have bad credit. Once you have that you can then develop a plan to get to an mortgage approvable credit report. Depending on your current credit report it can be a short period of time such as a month or so to several months. ... more

Since there is not a question mark in all of that I have to assume it is not a question but some sort of legal brief or comment.

You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rent/lease park/community.

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.

But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.

Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.

Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

I remember mortgage rates in the high teens, and to me anything below 6% is awesome. That said, if you have been building your credit from day one, after are on the right track. You may be able to get a great rate in as little as one year after filing, if you follow a good plan. Financial Planners and many great local bankers can guide you on the best approach to rebuilding a stronger credit profile for your specific situation. ... more

PHARISS Broker answered:
Contact a Broker in the Washington area you feel good about, and have him/her run some interference...many Brokers work with referral Agents and Brokers in other areas/states. For example, one Client was recently put in touch with an Agent in Davis, CA and was able to make an offer and buy a property for his college student to live in. You will want a local Realtor on the ground in CA to help you with the ins and outs of that areas' Real Estate Law and procedures. You may be able to use a Lender in Washington, which could also be a benefit to you. ... more

Sandra you could, you need to ask the agent to complete this and befoe you do ask if it will delay getting a response on your offer and most important ask oif there are any other offers submitted. That will help you judge where you need to be. ... more

The more money you put down;
The more Equity you will have,
The easier it will be to get the Loan,
The Interest Rate will be lower,
Your monthly payments will be lower.

Backing up from August, I would say May/June to start talking to a Mortgage Officer.
I would also suggest something like Garage Saleing in the areas you might be interested; this gives you something to do while you are looking, and talking to people.
I can e-mail you possibles, but you want to know the neighborhoods yourself.

Good luck and may God bless

You do NOT need to have a green card to buy a house, if you buy it with cash, or if the seller will carry your loan. But you DO need a green card if you borrow money from a bank or mortgage company. ... more

If you watch evening news; Crime and Drugs are everywhere:
And the real pity is; the more affordable areas are hit the worst.
If you can afford it, you know the neighborhoods that are preferable; and they are more expensive.
