This is often a catch 22 that needs to be worked out. There is no easy answer and someone has to give in or it can't work. Good luck.

Of course the answer varies greatly with regards to where the land is located, its attributes, and the quality and use. I would estimate approximately $1,000 an acre.

Also check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money, word of mouth, etc.

Hi Greg
Most state agencies offering assistance to first time home buyers have a list of lenders. You will find a link to the NY agency at Your-Road-Home.com. Also the article, Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers, will serve you well.
Another thought. You want pre approval not pre qual. Pre approval indicates they have verified your income and looked over your credit. The resulting letter will serve you better with the seller when negotiating. You will find an article at Your Road Home.

Best of Luck, Stephen Webber

Your buyer agent can easily complete a Broker Price Opinion with comps to assist you with making a good offer.

Yjami75,

As in real estate, there is no "typical" fee. Each one prices based on the value they place on themselves. Discounted service may result from discounted dollars.

Hong Yao,

This probably depends a lot on the area. If you are dealing with NYC, don't hold your breath.

Actually, you might call the title company that closed you and nudge them a bit; they are probably in the best position for good information and expectations. ... more

Nick Rafello, V.P. answered:
Pre-forclosure is more than likely going to stay with you for 10 years. If you're credit is run, it'll show that you didn't pay your mortgage. This will be a red flag. But keep in mind, if you are caught up and pay everything you owe (i.e. credit cards, mortgage, taxes, etc) for the next 2 years you're credit score will be in good standing and it more than likely will not be an issue. I know this as a family member of mine with through the exact same thing. After two years of struggling to get everything back, they were able to get a car and begin again on a good path.

Good luck.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Maura Jarach answered:
Hi Dirk,

Most likely bet is a condo for immediate ownership and ability to rent out without living in the unit first. However, there are also a handful of midtown , tudor city and kips bay coops which allow investors only which fetch excellent rent.

Is there a particular area of the city which interests you & is this a cash purchase/ 1031 exchange?

LMK how I can help further !

That will depend on the level of service in the building and other factor suchs as view, floor level and square footage.

I am a working real estate broker and Manhattan appraiser so when values are affixed to units, these are the things that are considered when making a loan. ... more
