As of today 5-11-2013 there is 14 homes (3 + bedrooms) listed on the MLS under $245k in the 92336 North Fontana zip code with only a few of them North of Baseline which would bring you closer to the 210 fwy. North Fontana is typically the priciest but depending on the type of home your looking for you may want to venture over to South Fontana 92337 were you can still find many homes in this price range that are in the 1980's and newer. North Fontana out of that 14 homes, 8 of them were older than 1980. I work the area and I will say if your looking for newer homes that this area will be very competitive and you may need to look at a lesser price (under $240k) so you can come in a bit high but once again when coming in over the listed price on some listings you may need too pay the overage out of pocket and sign off on the appraisal contingency. If you have some extra cash on hand over your downpayment and closing costs then you may consider coming in strong on the right property. Offers asking for closing costs may get less consideration at this time. This area is very competitive at this time and you are in a very competitive price range.
Call me for more advice or if I can assist you in your search for your new home.

Here in Dallas is pretty much a seller's market and we see a lot of multiple offers. Obviously sellers will choose the strongest buyers such as those with 20% down payment with full price or above asking price offer. Better yet, some buyers are cash buyers. Looking at property as soon as the property hits the market is also important and if you like the property and the area, I would suggest not to wait. Often time I find buyers who want to wait and think about it for a few days. Well, in sellers market they will miss out on the home especially if the home is nice and ready to move in. Another suggestion is to make the term friendlier to the sellers. For example, if sellers need 45 days before they can move out and you agree to it (if your situation allows) and don't ask for their fridge or washer and dryer for free as you don't know how they will react to it especially if you are competing with other offers.
I hope this helps and good luck,

As I am sure you have experienced that inventory in the 92336 area is limited. Based upon your approved loan amount of $239k, It may be a good idea to try searching a little further east; i.e. Rialto or San Bernardino. I suggest you at least explore these areas since there is more inventory within your price range. I can ensure you that you will be able to find a newer home in the 3+ bedroom range. I'd be more than happy to assist you. Please visit my web-site at http://www.greaterloans.com, or contact me at (909)380-6132 for more information....

You may consider half percent down payment and pay your own closing costs which will strengthen your offers. You may consider premium financing to cover portions of your closing costs as well. It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify you and go over the loan programs to fit your needs the best financially. Here are some links to study and consider that I offer.

Writing an offer in which you as the buyer asks for little in return such as not asking the seller to pay for your closing costs, termite inspection/repair or a home warranty is a good start.
