    Is It Possible To Buy Real Estate With No Money Down?

    November 4th, 2015

    no-money-down-rei-smI have heard many questions over the years from investors about whether or not it is really possible to buy real estate with no money down. The most frequent questions I get are from mortgage brokers and realtors. Since mortgage brokers are by definition trained to fund a loan based on bank requirements like 20% down payments, then by definition anything else seems to be beyond the scope of their possibilities. It has been my experience that many real estate professionals including real estate agents and mortgage brokers do not seem to understand the concept of no money down deals.

    Investors Should Stop Renting And Buy A Home Now – Part 1

    September 20th, 2013

    09-20-13 - for rentAre you currently renting the home that you live in? The Distressed Real Estate Institute™ recently analyzed data on historical pricing for existing home sales of single family homes in the U.S. We looked at historical price data for single family homes from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) going back to 1970. We applied historical real estate data to today’s real estate market in order to compare and analyze how a typical first time home buyer today could benefit by purchasing a home similar to the one that they are currently renting. Based on historical data, along with current home prices and mortgage rates we believe that if you are currently renting and you have decent credit then you should really think about buying a home right now. This is especially true if you are a first time home buyer who could qualify for an FHA Loan.
