How to proove assets?

As we are doing DCF and my USC husband has not worked while in Ireland, we'll need to meet to "affadavit of support" guidelines with assets. We have the money, but it's not all in one place, and I am wondering how to proof we have the money. Also, I wonder does it matter when the evidence is dated. For example:

1. I own an apartment here in Dublin outright, ie no mortgage. We plan on keeping the apartment and renting it out, providing a steady income. What will we need to provide to the embassy to prove my ownership/ rental income? Ie, will a letter from a letting agency giving approximate monthly rental value be enough, or should I make a copy of the deeds, or what?

2. We have a joint savings account here in Ireland. However, my husband is going to the US next month for ten days to establish domicile (get drivers liscense etc) and look at houses for us to buy. While in the US, he will open a bank account and we'll be transferring the Irish savings account money to that US account. Sometime later- probably before the visa interview- this money will be used to buy a house in the US. I would like to get everything together now for the next stage of the process, so can I just get a bank statement from the Irish account, or does it look better if we get a statement from the US account (I doubt I'll have heard from the embassy about the I-130 by the time my husband flies over), or do we need to have proof of the assets where they will be at the interview stage (ie when the money will be invested in the US house).

I'd over-plan. Get an appraisal on the house and then have statements from the Irish bank before and after the transfer and the US bank after to show that the $$ was transfered.

Agreed. And get a credit check done with the Irish Credit Bureau to show that you're all up to speed etc. (That's not for immigration purposes, BTW, but I understand that it goes down well if you're looking for mortgages, credit cards etc in the US. You mightn't need it - it's more boilerplate than anything).
