Have you ever thought you wanted to have another source of income, you certainly could have. Many people think we only work in areas where the price of homes is very low or in very poor neighborhoods. The photo above is an FHA 203k project we did a few years ago, as you can see some of these homes are in pretty nice areas. This one was in Fair Oaks, CA and the buyer was all over the 203k loan as it fit his needs most readily. Advantages to a contractor becoming a consultant include that you get to look at a property before most and you get to be paid to prepare a bid. Advantages to a Realtor is you get some cash up front while you wait for your commission on the sale.

If you want to know about the Sewer Lateral program, just click on the link below, at the end of this post.There is a $4,500 up front deposit for the owner of the home. If you are a realtor and sell a home that doesn't have the sewer lateral certificate, the buyers may be stuck with that fee. If you are the seller, you can, put in your sales brochure that this must be taken care of by the buyer(s). In any case if you choose to fix it or the new buyer(s) want to fix it you can use the FHA 203k to accomplish this. If that happens get hold of me as we have been granted, not guaranteed, a waiver provided your consultant includes wording in his or her write up. If you sell without disclosing this to the new buyers YOU may be liable for the fee. Just a heads up.https://www.eastbaypsl.com/Mike...
