My wife gets a traditional W2 and makes about 45K before her ESPP and other self deductions. <br/><br/>We own our own home and probably have about 100K of equity in the current market. <br/><br/>My credit score is 740-770 range. I would like to buy a investment property 200K or &lt; and put between 50-100K down. This would be a rental basically. I have about 15K in revolving credit. So far Quicken and the other guys show me at about 60-70% monthly LTV or whatever the term they use, so I am having some trouble with a conventional due to lack of W2 on my end. Hard money and all those other loans seem a bit extreme. Any advice or programs other than pay off the credit cards and reapply?<br \><br \>2 replies Tue, 10 Jun 2014 20:00:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stated-Income-or-Special-Program-loans/544952/ 2014-06-10T20:00:00Z House from 1960 and it shows! How much to remodel http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/House-from-1960-and-it-shows-How-much-to-remodel/507740/ My husband and I are looking at buying a house from 1960. &nbsp;It has every original part. It needs new electrical and plumbing. &nbsp;It has a 1200 square foot unfinished basement. I also would like to refinish the upstairs hardwood and make the kitchen more modern for the cheapest amount possible (it has a 1960's cook top in the island). &nbsp;I don't want anything fancy. &nbsp;I just need safe for my kids and updated to an extent for cheap. &nbsp;How far could possibly $20,000 get me? &nbsp;What about $15,000? &nbsp;It may still have an orangeburg pipe as well. &nbsp;Will I need to replace that right off the bat? &nbsp;I need to know if it's worth the fight for this house and how long roughly will it take me to make it all livable. &nbsp;<br \><br \>2 replies Tue, 20 Aug 2013 14:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/House-from-1960-and-it-shows-How-much-to-remodel/507740/ 2013-08-20T14:39:00Z Best Area in Salt Lake City for Gentrification Play http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Best-Area-in-Salt-Lake-City-for-Gentrification-Play/413670/ I am an investor and like to buy houses in older, close in areas that are undergoing the gentrification process.&nbsp; Are there any areas like this&nbsp; in Salt Lake City that you would recommend?<br \><br \>3 replies Tue, 30 Aug 2011 05:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Best-Area-in-Salt-Lake-City-for-Gentrification-Play/413670/ 2011-08-30T05:44:00Z I live in Utah and I own one home and have been renting it out and want to buy a new http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-live-in-Utah-and-I-own-one-home-and-have-been-renting-it-out-and-want-to-buy-a-new/483618/ I own one home in utah and have been renting it out for the last 2 years.
