If you can't seem to find that property that checks all the boxes for you.  One option is to buy a property that needs work and rehab it.  The problem is that can get very expensive and not everyone has the money to buy and rehab a house. Well, then you should consider using a rehab or construction loan program. This is also good for multiunit buildings (2-4 units) that need work. Want to know how this works? Check out the brochure and talk to our preferred lender. Want to discuss finding that property to fix up and make it beautiful again? Let's talk!

UNDER CONTRACT 6625 N. Ashland Ave.

I recently sold this building to a buyer in my neighborhood. For many years I have preached that buying a 2-4 unit building is a very smart purchase for a first time buyer. The additional rent can help you pay off the building faster, reduce your mortgage, pay for maintenance and eventually make your cost of living zero as rents rise over time. Never has there been a greater opportunity to purchase at a low interest rate, low down payment and high rents as exist right now. Prices are creeping up slowly, so as the saying goes "time is money". If you are considering buying a condo, this purchase should be at least part of the discussion going forward. Let's sit down and talk about creating a living situation that you can't afford to ignore.
