Real Estate Lender · Chicago, Illinois


Dexter,
County tax records are not accurate for property valuation. You will need to provide comps and actual sales data.



· Cordova, Tennessee


Ok, I will get to work on actual sales data. How old is acceptable?

If you have to ask that question, I'd recommend finding a good agent that knows the local market and ask for a CMA or BPO. That should provide the comps you need...

Wholesaler · Valley City, Ohio


Dexter,
You can get an actual appraisal for about 300 bucks.
If you choose to comp yourself, you should not go back more than 6 months or should not go further than half of a mile away. Make sure to consider amount of beds and baths, foundation type, garage, sq ft, etc...
If the property is on a main street vs. a side street, the value will take a hit.
In short, a local realtor can get you a BPO (brokers price opinion) for about 75 bucks.
I would be very cautious of zillow and sites like that for accuracy.

Finally, If you are going to borrow, you will have a much easier time if you have some skin in the game. So make sure you offer to have 10% or so into the deal and be at no more than 50% LTV to give a nice security.
Good luck!!!

Dexter, I hope you take the comments in this thread as a learning experience for yourself. You started off fine, then when you asked that certain question, it was crystal clear how much of a beginner you are. NOT to say that is bad (we all started as beginners at one point), but if you are going to ask for money, you NEED to do it AFTER you are fully prepared and that requires getting fully educated first, then go get that deal and ask for money.
Better yet, don't ask for money, offer an opportunity.
