Not sure if I fully understand your question. I will try to answer though.

Fannie Mae has two mortgage products under the HomePath name. One of them is called HomePath Renovation Mortgage. This is a mortgage product where a buyer can purchase a property that needs work. In this product, the lender agrees to lend the purchase price + the repair amount.

For example, if you find a property that is selling for $100k and the estimated cost of repairs is $10k, the lender agrees to lend the extra $10k to the buyer. There are quite a few requirements that need to be met though. Here is a link to the HomePath website where you can find more information about the program ->

I sell real estate in Scottsdale and Phoenix. So I am afraid I can't really give you any more specific information regarding the property you inquired about. Please let me know if you need help finding a local real estate agent in the area. I will be glad to introduce you.

Good luck!

OK, here is the problem you are facing. Zillow, Trulia and other national sites can take 3-4 days to post new listings. With many of not most homes selling in the first 3-4 days these national sites are simply supplying information too late to be useful.

My website is updated every few hours and only shows active listings.

Second, if you contact me directly, I will send you new listings at the end of each day directly from ARMLS. Let me know your search criterion and desired location.

I would say that you will pay$1500-$1800 for the slab. Probally about $6.00 per ft to frame it. Plumbing $800-$1200. Electrical $500. Drywall/drywall texture $600-$800.Roofer $300. Plus your material costs (concrete excluded) of lumber, window, insulation, trusses, drywall, siding, paint, bathroom toilet, tub, shower, sink and cabinets, shingles/tile for roof. That is my shot in the dark. I am a Nevada licensed contractor and I have quite a few connections in the Tucson area. But I have not seen a plan. This is a pure guesstimate.

Thank you,
