I have lived in Long Beach right between Ocean Blvd and First St and between Los Alamitos and Cerritos for 2 1/2 years and need to let all of you know that rent there for a 1 bedroom is anywhere from 1200 to 1500 with no amenities like dishwasher or air conditioning(yes it does get hot in the summer!), and most don't have patio or balcony. There is hardly any one bedrooms that come with parking(mostly 2 bd apts). Parking is very bad! I usually end up parking about 3-4 blocks from my place by the time I get home around 430 to 530 pm. Two bedrooms apts are about 1900 and up with some having 1 parking place. Alot of these apartments in this area are run by slumlords that don't fix stuff up (bare mininum), don't spray for bugs(including spiders-real problem). Old and outdated apts. They will raise your rent every year. There is a really bad homeless problem, sleeping on your porch/stairs, breaking into laundry rooms and stealing laundry or going the bathroom in it, digging through trash cans at all hours making big messes and alot of noise, throwing trash and clothes all over the sidewalks. Doing drugs in the alley ways next to the apartments and even on the stairs/porches to apartments. Alot of crime in this area too. Have had multiple neighbors report break-ins(one while they were home at night!). Police chases by car and foot through the neighborhood. Twice someone has been shot within a two block radius. You are better off looking inland like Signal Hill or down in the Belmont Shores/ Belmont Heights area vs Long Beach. Ever since they redid the Pike and cleaned up downtown for the tourists it has pushed the homeless and crime element into our residential area. Areas are bad and too high prices for what you get.... more

Trulia is an advertising site. If you have a complaint, contact the Department of Financial Services in New York. Lots of complaints are due to misunderstandings and miscommunications. Try to discuss it with the loan officers boss before you make claims that might damage them.

Contact several insurance providers, tell them the square footage and construction material of your home along with any special features of value, and they should be able to give you an estimate.
Tell them you want replacement cost coverage.
If you feel their estimate and coverage are too low, you can always increase them.
You can certainly buy "more" insurance.
* Pay attention also to liability and medical coverage. I think your chances of being sued are greater than your home being completely destroyed. Hope not, either way.
Sell my home fast companies are legitimate companies that look for people who need help in selling their property to avoid foreclosure, bankruptcy, divorce, help with inheritance and so forth. Those who claim they are scam artists are simply out of touch with what they really do. 99 percent who claim they are scam artists are real estate agents and brokers...simply put..that is their competition and this is why they are against their services. Real estate agents want to sell your property for as much as they can because they make a 3 to 6 percent commission off of your home. Sell your home fast companies will sell it for under value because you want to get rid of it quick...they base their buys off of how motivated a seller is to sell fast. If you want the most bang for your buck and don't mind waiting for a long and drawn out closing, and still the need to pay an agent for basically putting it on a website and then getting some paperwork situated and showing to to potential buyers then a real estate agent is the way to go. Fact of the matter remains, these sell your home fast companies will use creative ways to help the individual so they can save the persons credit, and at times even give them something in their pocket after ridding them of their problem child home. A real estate agent needs to make a buck off of your property, and so does the sell your home fast companies. One is designed for people who dont need to sell fast and can be patient and wait for the right buyer ( agents &brokers). The other is designed for people who are in desperate need of selling their house fast to get out of a bad situation or to capitalize on a situation before a bad one happens.
All these pro- real estate agents and avoid fast buying companies people are real estate agents, they want you to use them or other real estate agent services. But the facts are, one is not better than the other, they just have different customers. Most of these sell your home fast companies have a ton of knowledge and know just as much as real estate agents, even some are licensed agents. Look into both and ask questions before taking random peoples advice.... more
