Country Estates MHP has an option of purchasing shares in the co-op that owns the park. If a Buyer is interested in the shares, they can obtain more information, with the net result being and a lower HOA monthly fee. So, basically, you can get the 'dirt' about owning the dirt :-) I hope this is useful information.... more
Hi Valerie...Can you keep a secret? [Leisure Village in Camarillo] After you study the demographics of the aging baby-boomer generation, you will connect the dots and realize this gated senior community is poised for long-term appreciation. Yesterday, apx.10,000 aging baby-boomers celebrated their 60th birthday, as they did today and will do so tomorrow. Promise you'll keep this a secret?... more
You can possibly buy a fixer shack 2+1 or maybe 1+1 that won't qualify for financing -- therefore all cash only (maybe 203B FHA) - in the $100-150k price range either along The Avenue, Casitas Springs or out in La Conchita. Rent maybe 800-1000/month for a habitable condition property. Sorry to share the real facts. Mobile homes are a lot less but may not be good choices for viable rental/investment properties.... more
I've got news.....I have clients with a million + and can't find anything for them. The shortage has hit almost every price point. Call me in late February when I expect to see more homes appear on the market. As a matter of fact, let me know what you are looking for now so I can help you get what you want when or before it hits the market. If your expecatons are realistic, we'll succeed!... more
These condo's are selling between $114 -140K.
Great investment as they rent for about $1200 a month and can make these a cash positive home for an investor or a great buy for a new home owner as you can buy it with a monthly payment less then you would pay in rent!

Oxnard is not for everyone but it has some new redevelopment areas and some historical areas and some run down areas. Overall, except for the area off Ventura ave in Ventura, I think you will find the city super pleasant, diverse, friendly, good shopping a true downtown. It's my favorite place to be so I answer with bias. I dont live there yet but I've seen lots of LA, bay area, and towns all across the country, I'm planning to call ventura home next.... more
First off, have you discussed these questions with your current agent? For any agent to answer your question would take getting to know your situation. And depending on where you are looking and what you are looking for specifically, it will be hard to answer your question.
But from a timing standpoint, now is a great time to buy with record low interest rates and housing prices back to pre-housing boom prices.
The list below are duplex properties from the Ventura County Coastal Association of Realtors.
I would like to know if you will work with me to help you find a duplex in the price range and area you would like to live. Please contact me to discuss your purchase. Karla Reed/Broker #00867424 (805) 633-0684. Thanks!

If you agent is a Buyers Agents they would not get any info direct from the Sellers Bank but from teh Listing Agent or the negiotiator hired to work on the sellers behalf. It is why the seller needs an expereinced and aggressive listing agent who can get updates and pass thenm onto your agent or you. You need to assess where the seller is in the short sale process. First the short sale package is completed and submitted, then the sellers bank will order an appraisal, once it comes back they determine if your offer is at or under market value. The process can take as little as a month but 2 months on average. if the agent is not following up properly, it could be 3-6 months. Check with the listing agent for updates.... more
Good Evening, you should definetely contact a lender first. There are so many good choices. I personally recommend Jenni Sherman Jsherman@medallionmtg.com 805-279-1441. She is based out of Simi but has a home in Oxnard so, she is in your neck of the woods. A lender will be able to help you determine your price range and programs that work for your financial abilities. Help you figure out if you need to work on anything financially before you are ready to purchase a home. Then, contact myself or Barry Shapiro, who will probably pop on here to answer your questions any minute now. We work in the same office and both can help you with finding the right home. Feel free to contact me directly though my profile for a free MLS portal access, no obligation.
I personally filed bankruptcy due to divorce at a very young age. You get over it, get past it and homeownership is an excellent way to reestablish good credit. I have a fantastic credit score now and was grateful for the reset to my life.... more
Your question did not link to the condo you are interested in. If it is a foreclosure auction in Ventura County the sale is typically at the north entrance to the court house. You might not know until the day before or the same day if they will have the starting bid below current market value. Should you win the bid you need to pay for it right then with cashiers checks. The other type of auction is when the banks have a home that they already foreclosed on that they want to get rid of. Then the auction rules will be different. Check out http://www.auction.com/ as they handle a lot of REO homes.... more
