Ways to Save up For a Down Payment

Ways to Save up For a Down Payment

experience, opinion, real estate, real estate investment
Just like what the title said, in this post, I’ll show you some of the ways you can use to save up some money.   The first thing you need to do is to determine the size of your down payment. This is important because if you’re unaware of how much you’ll need to set aside in order to make a reasonably sufficient down payment, you don’t have a direction. From my experience, I would say that typically you need around 15 to 20 percent down payment for a single-family home, and to qualify you to need to have a credit score of 720 or higher Moving on if you’re multifamily the safe range would be at 25 percent of your purchase price.   The rules may be slightly different…

How to Invest In Real Estate With Little to No Cash and Experience?

It’s 100% hustle and 0% excuses. At least that’s where I start my journey. Many gave up along the way because it wasn’t as glamorous as they thought it would be for them. Start conditioning your mind to see rejection as a step closer to success and not a barrier to stop you.   What happens if you don’t have the money to invest in real estate but you still want to own a few properties? Here is…

Bathroom Renovation You Should Never Do Yourself

experience, opinion
Whether you’re someone looking to purchase a home or an agent looking to take things into your own hands, this article I’ll point out some of the bathroom renovations that you should not do it yourself.   It may be the smallest room in your house, but the renovation isn’t necessarily proportional to its size. According to Open Listings director, “ A bathroom remodel is the most nerve-wracking of any renovation, especially if it is the only bathroom in your home.” I can totally relate because it may look simple to handle but when it comes to details, there is a lot of work that needs to be done carefully. One error you may end up not being able to use the bathroom for the entire day or even more.…

Is Historic Home Right Investment For You?

Is Historic Home Right Investment For You?

experience, investment, real estate, real estate investment
It’s very hard to determine what is right and what is not because different home buyers have different taste and preference. For me, I am more of a historic home kind of person, and if you’re just like me you may want to take these factors into consideration as you shop.   Beware of restrictions As you know different states have different regulations when it comes to historic homes and neighborhoods. From what I know, many towns throughout the U.S. have zoning and planning commissions that, among other things, set out to preserve and protect historic homes and neighborhoods. So, if you’re looking to change or renovate a historic home you may require a separate layer of approval in order to proceed.   As a result, renovations and planning can…
