Dear Sabrina, a two bedroom near transportation makes the rent higher, and with utilities included is a rare find. Select the area or areas you will consider to reside, then look up on the computer Realtors in that vacinity. Start making your calls and within a few hours, you will know immediately if there is any potential for you. By the way, tell Realtors if you have a Pet first off, not after you fall in love with the apartment. You do not need to have a pin put into your balloon of joy. ... more

Please speak with a mortgage professional about this soon. It sounds like you are on the right track making a financial plan. A mortgage broker is the one to consult.

Gail Gladstone answered:

Finding an investment property can be less stressful than you think.

I will be happy to provide you with a FREE service called Listing Book. Listing Books provides every property listed with the Multiple Listing Service.

I will set up an account for you that you will then own. Simply enter your search criteria and everything that matches your search will be delivered to your account.

If a property that is over your price limit is reduced into your range, you will be immediately notified.
When new properties are listed on the Multiple Listing Service that meet your search requirements, you will be immediately notified.

This service is free to you and does not obligate you to me or any other Realtor; you get to pick with whom you wish to work.

The minimal information I need to get you started is your full name, email address and $ maximum. You will control the rest.

Additionally, Gladstone Group is also actively engaged in property management and once you have purchased the investment property, we would be happy to present you with a proposal for our services.

Yes there is... Allowing a Realtor to help you find properties! You could be sending the listing to your Raaltor who can then look it up in their MLS system or contact the other broker to find out for you. Otherwise you'll be calling several different brokers everytime you want to know what the maintenance fees are. ... more

Javier Meneses answered:
I think that all the best things you can do to get the best rate possible happens before you even shop for a mortgage. By saving as much as possible towards down payment and making sure your credit balances are low and all your bills paid on time, will put you in a position to obtain the best mortgage rate and terms.

i also tell people to NOT shop interest rates alone, but rather shop for the Loan Officer and/or mortgage company you feel will provide the best service along with fair rates. i've seen many people who go for a particular company simply because they offered the best rate, which almost all the time is not much different than what other banks offered, but yet have problems closing loans. You have larger banks who offer lower fees and rates, but is not willing to approve your loan because they're extrmemly conservative, then on the other side you have companies who are willing to take all the risks in the world to approve your loan but fees are through the roof. Find something in the middle, a bank whose menatlity is "every loan matters", a bank or Loan Officer who is known for working with Realtors and homebuyers, and delivers. This assures that the people you're working with see a variety of situations and have the experience necessary to deliver good service to a homebuyer. There is no way you'll get that over the internet or a phone.
