My suggestion is that you associate yourself with a local Realtor who is knowledgeable in the market in which you want to buy. Sit down with the Realtor and discuss what it is that you are trying to accomplish. Learn about the condition of your local market, the availability of houses in your price range, and what it will take to achieve your goal. Get preapproved for financing if you are not a cash buyer so that you will be ready to make an offer when the right opportunity presents itself.
This property is pending. It was put under contract on August 10th. Many of the 3rd party websites are not up to date which is why I would recommend that you use the public section of the California Desert Area Multiple Listing Service. It is the most accurate and up to date. if you are looking for a home with like this one perhaps I can help you locate one.
