How short can an escrow be in CA?
I just closed an all cash deal in less than a week. If a loan is involved it usually takes around 30 days, depending on the lender.

When's the best time to sell a house to maximize gains?
Sell when the prices are high and demand is also high. When it's a "Seller's Market" as it is right now!

I'm looking into the 2006 Vista Del Verde Community Homes in Yorba Linda. I heard it used to be a landfill before the homes were built. Is this?
Hi Diane,
I have lived in the area since 1961. Actually, the landfill is in Brea (not Yorba Linda) and is north/west of Vista Del Verde.
Good luck,
