Asked by Sr, Sunnyvale, CA Sun Jun 29, 2008

I am thinking of buying a 4BR/3BT 1778sft TH in Sunnyvale 94089 at 730k. Is it a good price? I checked online that it does not have great schools.
I am planning to put 10% down, what are the other things to consider like CC etc?

Dear Home Buyer,

If you're working with an agent, they should be able to provide you with comparables or a market analysis on historical sales in the area to show you what the market has been paying for that type of property in that area. Also, it depends what else is included in the property. Town homes usually have home oweners associations and other possible amenities such as a pools, spas, tennis courts, parks, etc.

Another BIG influential factor, when considering a purchase, is the disclosure information about the property, including home owner association fees, budgets, reserves etc. Also, does the property have an insurance claims history, pest infestation, etc. A These are all possible and not uncommon negotiating points that could set this listing apart from the rest. Most often, disclosures are available on line and easliy accessible these days via your agent.

I could go on and on, but best to know more about your situation. Good luck to you!

Mountain View has much better schools for the price but you will pay more. I have lived in the area for the past 20 years and prefer Mountain View to Sunnyvale.

Hi, Sr,
Do you talk to a real estate professional yet?
Do you approve with a lender?
Are you going to buy that brand new townhouse complex? Do you check with you all your options?
If you have any question, give me a call

Hi Sr,
Are these the TH near Fair Oaks and Tasman? I'd be interested in knowing. Right now you can purchase a single family home in a much nicer area of Sunnyvale for the price you are paying for a TH. Plus you don't have a monthly home owners fee and you are not near so many trailer parks.
Drop me an email or call me with what you REALLY WANT and what price you'd like to stay under and I can set it up for you and when you do purchase you'll KNOW you didn't over pay.
Look forward to hearing from you,

You need to have a real estate agent comp the property, if you don't like the schools are you going to do private which is a expense of additional $15K per year? http://www.lynn911.com

Location, location, location. Then of course price also is important and the Homeowners Assosiation fees and what they cover. The School District might not be important to you, but it could be important for some future buyer.
