I just wanted to get some advice here in terms of costs. I just finished watching the Inside Job, and all I could think of is I want to look at buying a foreclosure in Vegas! I have taken a look at some websites and there are some insanely dirt cheap properties (like $500 cheap...) which obviously looks extremely attractive who loves going to Vegas. However my mom kindly pointed out you may need to hire someone for yard upkeep, checking the property, keeping gas running, taxes, etc. so what about a foreclosed condo? ok maybe not because of taxes and condo fees... I'm 24 and have a pretty good job, I don't make a HUGE amount of money but it's not too bad overall for me.
What would someone suggest? Does anyone have any idea of what costs to maintain this would?
