Diane Christner answered:
Is it a good idea to buy a new townhome directly from a home building company like KB Home without having a realtor of your own? What are the pros?
I would suggest doing some research on the builder first. A new home warranty is only as good as the reputation of the builder backing it.

I am a first time homebuyer looking in Sunnyvale. What is the market like? Crime rate? Any tips or feedback would be greatly appreciated.?
Most properties are sold way way way over asked due to close proximity to job centers. 25% buyer use cash to force the offer. Competition is always fierce any time of the year.

Need landscaper recommendation for backyard remodel - 1. install a badminton court. 2. Install hard surface instead of a lawn.
Suggest pavers (e.g. colorful) very popular adding value to the property.

Badminton court is not popular. Next owner need to jackhammer to get concrete out.

You need to talk to the county to correct the record. What matters at the time you decide to sell is what county records show.

Are there any constraints for non-permanent resident alien (H1B) borrowing money from parents (different country) to buy a house ?
Possibly a gift letter for part of 20% notarize at US embassy. I believe the overseas bank should have a US local presence.

From resale valuation point of view should I keep existing Accessory Living Unit (granny quarter) or demolish it when we remodel the main house?
Granny flats are always popular. Personally, I would say leave it intact.
