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.

Will lenders finance a 1974 mobile home on 0.19 acres if it's not on a permanent foundation in California or does it have to be a cash buy?

Hello, I am doing a FSBO for a single family home and looking for a realtor who can handle the paperwork, I am already in a contract with a buyer

Do you think 37 Degrees North or Tasman Crossing townhomes is better location?
Both are convenient locations from a commuting standpoint. Which one is better depends on your situation. Do you want to take light rail to work?
