Lender Owned Cosmetic Fixer in Quiet Neighborhood!

General: Santee, 3 Bedroom, 1.75 Bathroom

Con:

What's Wrong With It: Needs all kinds of minor cosmetic touches, from carpet to paint to fixing a sliding glass door. The living room is a bit on the small side. Former owners put a few large holes in the wall.

Why It Hasn't Sold: Nobody else has found it yet? I spent quite a while looking for a gotcha! and didn't find one.

Who it's Not Appropriate For: People who insist their purchase be beautiful before they see it.

Pro:

Selling Points: Quiet cul-de-sac in good neighborhood, nice private backyard, solid house with plenty of room for a family. Schools in the area are well above average.

Who Should be Interested: People with a family looking for a place to raise kids.

Why it's a Bargain: The need to do a bit of work is making it unattractive to most potential buyers.

Financial:

What I think I can get it for: $320,000.

Monthly Payment examples: I've currently got a thirty year fixed rate loan available for qualified buyers at 5.25% for one total point.

With no down payment: Fully Amortized Payment $2034 including financing insurance (APR 6.705), dropping to $1767 when you have 20% equity (APR 5.391)

With 20% down: Fully amortized payment of $1413 (APR 5.404).

Other financing options are available, potentially lowering the payments, but I'm quoting real loans that real people can get, that will stay exactly the same until you pay it off.

Investment potential: If you keep it ten years and it averages only 5% annual average appreciation per year: Based upon a purchase price of $320,000 the property would be worth approximately $520,000. If you held it those ten years before selling, you would net about $290,000 in your pocket (not including increased value from updates!), assuming zero down payment. As opposed to renting the $2100 per month most comparable currently available rental and investing the difference at 10% per year tax free, you would be approximately $240,000 ahead of the renter, after the expenses of selling.

To learn more: Agree that you'll use me as a buyer's agent if you buy it. If you don't like it or don't buy it, no obligation is incurred. If you're not working with someone who will go out and find properties like this, maybe you should consider working with me instead!

Please be civil. Avoid profanity - I will delete the vast majority of it, usually by deleting the entire comment. To avoid comment spam, a comments account is required. They are freely available, and you can post comments immediately. Alternatively, you may use your Type Key registration, or sign up for one (They work at most Movable Type sites). All comments made are licensed to the site, but the fact that a comment has been allowed to remain should not be taken as an endorsement from me or the site. There is no point in attempting to foster discussion if only my own viewpoint is to be permitted. If you believe you see something damaging to you or some third party, I will most likely delete it upon request.
Logical failures (straw man, ad hominem, red herring, etcetera) will be pointed out - and I hope you'll point out any such errors I make as well. If there's something you don't understand, ask.
Nonetheless, the idea of comments should be constructive. Aim them at the issue, not the individual. Consider it a challenge to make your criticism constructive. Try to be respectful. Those who make a habit of trollish behavior will be banned.
