You are bound by what is said and dates in the addendum and extension. Please speak to your realtor or his broker about your concerns and questions. If you break your agreement you could be sued by buyer for breech of contract.

Sometimes it is possible. It is, however, extremely difficult to get qualified for a mortgage as a foreign investor. You need to have a US bank account among other things.

On a Re-Fi, and particularly on an INVESTMENT property, you probably will not do better than you already have:

The one exception that I can think of, would be a bigger tax deduction for this year; (I am not a tax expert, you should consult with a tax expert to analyze this part of the equation).

Just be sure to get a GFE from several lenders and look at the fees/expenses and the difference it will make to you monthly out-go.

Good luck and may God bless

Typically is 3 years, providing you have employment and your debt to income rate is under 45 for an FHA loan and you have money saved for down payment and closing cost.

You've been futzing around with these stories for months. If there is a real issue here, contact a lawyer. I don't think real estate agents are going to keep giving you free advice based on misleading info. Anyway, you need to PAY a lawyer if you have a serious legal issue. ... more

If your question is should you have a local property manager, the answer is yes. And they are the ones to handle #2 and 3. To answer #1, I would need to know your investment goals; How much you have to spend and the balance between cash flow and potential appreciation, etc. I generally recommend single-family homes (stand alone homes) in most but not all cases. Contact me if you are serious about investing in Las Vegas. We also have in-house property management.

Hello leiahuisa,

Safe and nice are relative terms. But I have friends who live in the area and who are very nice, and they are also safe people. There is no place in Las Vegas where there is no crime, and because "nice" is in the eye of the beholder, I have to go by the price of the homes in the area to judge what you might consider "Nice". Based on the price range, I would say it is nice. If I were interested in purchasing a home in that price range, I would feel just fine buying in the area. There are schools, churches, shopping, and transportation all within moments of the intersection you mention. Appraisers would tell you that the area homes are homogeneous.

If you would like to see the crime stats for the area, you can go to:

Best of luck, and thanks for reading

A single family home in that price range will require many thousands of dollars of repairs before you can live there. Are you ready for that?

Jeff Wallenfang answered:
I do have a few people who can help Canadians get mortgages. If memory serves, the last time I asked they were talking about 20% down. Remember not to spend all your cash on the downpayment because you will have some closing costs, and you will surely want to make some repairs or renovations on your new home. Something you will want to keep in mind is that it's hard to finance a condo unless it's on the HUD list of FHA approved communities (I've attached a link).

Of the 20000+ properties that have sold through the MLS this year, only a few hundred were owner financed, lease-to-own, or some other alternative to cash/mortgage. Don't count on this sort of thing.

I know the NW and SW well and have helped condo buyers in both areas.

Hope you have a great day.

Jeff Wallenfang answered:
Unless you are a Veteran, your best bet is an FHA mortgage. That only requires a 3.5% minimum downpayment.

Keep in mind that the downpayment is not the only expense you'll have when buying a home. Be sure you have cash set aside for things like downpayment, earnest money deposit (that gets applied to your downpayment at close), home inspections, and of course the repairs/renovations/upgrades you will want or need to make to your new home after closing. I would hate for you to spend all your money before closing and not be able to make those changes! ... more

Yes, depends on Lender and actual condo. Homepath mortgages definitely finance condos also.

Hello, one of the best things about Las Vegas is that there is not necessarily a "good" or "bad" part of town. Location would depend on what your needs and preferences are while you are in town. Price is going to be based on demand at the time you are looking, we are currently experiencing a shortage of listed properties so prices are rising. Please feel free to take a look at my website for a free search of available property or you can reach me on my cell 702-824-4011. Good luck to you in your search! ... more
