Joseph Runfola answered:
The tenant must return the premises in the same condition it was received with allowances for ordinary wear and tear, and in a broom - swept condition. The tenant does not have to make any repairs (unless otherwise stated in the lease). Most leases contain an implied warranty of habitability. The landlord guarantees that the leased property is fit for human habitation, and the tenant will not be subjected to conditions in the premise that could potentially endanger their life, safety, or health. ... more

The two most important things that Lenders look at are your record of paying bills, and your ability to pay future bills:
How likely are you to continue to pay your obligations, and,
The sources for your money to pay them.
If you have lots of money in investments and savings, you could get by, but they generally want you to have a job; a continuous influx of money.

A good rule of thumb is to be prepared with 4-5% of the purchase price and blank checks. The hopeful outcome is to leave with a new home, some unused checks, a little money left in the bank and a big smile on your face. ... more

Joseph Runfola answered:
If your property taxes, water charges, or other charges against your property are not paid, these charges can become tax liens that may be sold in a tax lien sale. Each year NYC Finance sells tax liens. If your property has unpaid debt that qualifies for the lien sale, NYC Dept. of Finance will sell your lien debt (the amount owed) to an authorized buyer. A lien servicing company, on behalf of the buyer, adds more fees and interest to your debt, so it is much better to take care of your debt before it is sold.

I get a phone call like this almost everyday and my answer unfortunately is always the same, I can not take them on as a client if they have less than stellar credit because it is just a waste of time. With the market being so aggressive, very few are willing to even entertain the idea of bad credit, because chances are, if they wait a few weeks, they will find someone with good credit for their rental. ... more

To be honest, not exactly. Lot's of forclosures and short sales.
A lot's of old and run down homes. High crime area and not the best schools in the world.
As we call it a "sub prime area". But it's an investors paradise.
So it's all depand on your intention.
