There are a lot of great options but sometimes you need affiliations as in credit unions or USAA. A lender can walk you through what is the best fit for you and your needs.... more
I specialize in the are of Golden Hills of Redondo Beach and recently ran some numbers. The inventory is extremely low so in the first half of 2014 there have been 57 homes sold. Of those 57, 34 of those homes sold at or over asking price. That means that 60% of the time saless were at or above asking.... more
Real Estate agents are not Structural Pest Inspectors. They can recommend Termite Inspection Companies they have used in the past and had good results with. They can recommend expanding the inspection to include garages, outbuildings, etc by suggesting that to their clients.... more
Sounds to me like the seller may have received a better offer and is trying to get out of the deal. He can not unilaterally decide to change the terms and conditions he agreed to. Otherwise what's the point of a contract! If you have not removed your contingencies you should be fine.... more
Most termite companies will offer some warranty of their work. However if they didn't do any work and only provided a clearance that's something different because as you correctly point out the swarming may have occurred recently.

Incidentally, this is not an uncommon situation whether it is new construction or a resale, unfortunately.... more

Even today buying a home does not guarantee it will hold value. Consumer confidence is low, and there are a lot of homeowners far behind on payments which means the future market isn39;t looking very bright at all in terms of the housing market.
If you have a definitive need to buy a home, and will hold onto it for years (no one ever really knows for sure), it is the best chance you will have at being better off buying now.... more
There's no such word as celeberty. I assume you meant, celebrity? Anyway, when it doubt, they say it's always recommended to disclose! disclose! disclose! If that is a matter of fact, and you know the celebrity who occupied the property, then disclose.... more
