What Types of Seller or Buyer Queries Do Glenview Licensed Brokers and Realtors Handle?
How can I be in real estate without money?
One of the most common questions that new real estate investors want to know is how to start in real estate investing with no money down, or with very little cash out of pocket. Many people are clamoring to invest, but with moderate incomes or a lot of expense, just haven't been able to save much cash.
Although it is recommended to have some money in reserve at all times, it is absolutely possible to get started without a lot of money in savings. Here are the 5 best ways on how to get into real estate investing when cash is scarce:
1. Buy a home as a primary residence.
2. Buy a duplex, and live in one unit while you rent out the other one.
3. Create a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) on your primary residence or another investment property.
4. Ask the seller to pay your closing costs.
5. Utilize a lender that either pays closing costs or offers a rebate on your down payment.
What are the types of secured loans?
Secured loans can be used for a number of different purposes. For example, if you're borrowing money for personal uses, secured loan options can include:
3.Share-secured or savings-secured Loans.
4.Secured credit cards.
5.Secured lines of credit.
6.Car title loans.
8.Life insurance loans.
9.Bad credit loans
As mentioned, vehicle loans and mortgage loans are secured by their respective assets. Share-secured or savings-secured loans work a little differently. These loans are secured by amounts you have saved in a savings account or certificate of deposit (CD) account at a credit union or bank. This type of secured loan can be useful for building credit if you're unable to get approved for other types of loans or credit cards.ï»¿
In the case of a secured credit card or line of credit, the collateral you offer may not be a physical asset. Instead, the credit card company or lender may ask for a cash deposit to hold as collateral. A secured credit card, for instance, may require a cash deposit of a few hundred dollars to open. This cash deposit then doubles as your credit limit.
ï»¿Regardless of what kind of personal loan you're considering, it's often wise to first use a personal loan calculator to find the right monthly payment amount, term length, and interest rate to suit your needs.
Can agents lie about other offers?
Yes, they can lie about stuff like that. You could counter that you want to see proof of the offer, but faking it has been known to happen as well.
However in this case it makes zero sense that they'd even bother with you if they have an offer that is that much better. They are probably bluffing. We would respond like, well thanks anyway but that's more than we are willing to pay and we can't close that quickly. If it's true you'd have to beat it, are you willing to pay $25,000 more and close in 3 weeks? Makes no sense that anyone would do that. If you're going to lie at least make it believable.
It's like playing poker or buying a car - just make your best offer and be willing to walk away. Don't let them wind you up into making an emotional decision.

How long will it take to sell my home?
No one wants their house to sit on the market for too long. A house may take anywhere between 30-45 days to sell depending on the market. If a market is hot enough, sellers could find their home off the market within a week. If the market is slow (or the house is overpriced,) the number could reach triple digits. Exposure, negotiations, and the condition of the home will also affect its ability to sell fast.
It took the average buyer 45 days to apply and close on their mortgage loan that month. Since this occurs after an offer has been accepted, this means the average seller only had to wait around 11 days to find a suitable buyer.
What Are The Closing Costs?
Be prepared for the upfront costs sellers may need when closing on a home offer. The total costs will depend on the buyer's offer, but an agent in Glenview should be able to estimate the money sellers need on hand. They can include attorney fees, title fees, broker commission, appraisal fees, and more.
Are secured loans bad?
Secured loans are less risky for lenders, which is why they are normally cheaper than unsecured loans. But they are much riskier for you as a borrower because the lender can repossess your home if you do not keep up repayments.
Cons of secured loan
1.The loan is secured on your home, so you could lose your home if you cannot keep up your repayments.
2.Some loans have variable interest rates, meaning your repayments could increase. Make sure you know if the rate is fixed or variable.
Some secured loans have expensive arrangement fees and other charges. Make sure you factor this in when you work out how much the loan is going to cost you. Arrangement fees and other set-up costs should be included in the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (or APRC - this is similar to the APR for unsecured loans). Use the APRC to compare products.
