May I suggest our interactive website http://www.fbs-pm.com/renter-services/rental-search/ This website can also be uploaded as a mobile version so you can see what's available on your smartphone including video tours of the houses, condos and apartments in which you have interest. This same interactive site allows you to apply online, assist you with our lease documents and get you moved in to your new home. Later you will have a secure place to pay your rent online and thereby never have a problem with late rent penalties. If you have a maintenance issue you can communicate the same way. We provide personal resident care with technological convenience.As you can imagine selections in the price range you mention get a lot of interest and get rented very quickly.
After you have gained some insight from our website please give FBS a call. Our closest office is our San Diego North County Office. It is minutes from your neighborhood of interest. We have helpful professionals that specialize in your rental customer needs. Phone number is 858-487-4004.
Good luck. Neil... more
I don't have any information indicating that this home will be on the market soon. Are you just interested in this home? There are others in the area that are similar that are on the market. I would be happy to work with you and find you some similar available homes. We can talk about the steps in the buying process and I can send you some active inventory that matches what you are looking for.

The things you read about Poway schools are indeed correct, it is one of the top districts in the San Diego area. I am assuming you are looking there because of the proximity to MCAS Miramar. Here are some other areas that are close by that also have great school districts:
Rancho Penasquitos is a really nice area as well, the homes tend to be 1800 sq/ft +, and have decent size yards. I live in the Scripps Ranch area, and absolutely love it. Let us know if we can help you find a home.

Scary? Yes, I agree that buying a place in a different country can cause some uneasiness and a little concern. However, if you work with a professional who understands everything it is that you are trying to accomplish, along with being able to walk you through the process in an easy to understand manner, then you should be in good hands. 92103 is Mission Hills and is quite a neat neighborhood with a lot of craftsman style homes. Generally speaking, most places in San Diego would be no further than 30 minutes from 92103, so it's a question of how close you want to be to the relatives, what kind of home you can afford and any other parameters you may have. As far as buying a place outright, while it may be nice to not have any debt, it really becomes a question of whether you want your cash tied up into a home or have that money working for you elsewhere. Getting the interest deduction on a mortgage is one of, if not the, biggest tax benefit, so assuming you are in a 25% tax bracket and a 4% interest rate (can probably get lower, but I'm being conservative), then the effective cost of borrowing is really 3%. So, can you earn more than 3% elsewhere with your money? Of course, if for whatever reason you are not able to obtain financing, then cash may be your only option.
At any rate, you should be ecstatic to be moving to America's Finest City. As a San Diego native and someone who has traveled rather extensively, there are few better places to be in the world than here.

Why are you focusing on short sales and foreclosures? In many, many cases they are not the best deals on the market. Consider the fact that you have to wait for the bank to respond to your offer, which could be 4 or 4 months and then they tell you what they will or will not pay. On a foreclosure many banks will not pay for termite, pay for a home warranty and the do not pay for repairs, so a physical inspection is for your information only.
Although some Realtors who have REO accounts know that a property will become available they don't accept the first offer - in fact they usually take offers for a 5 days before they select. There are other ways to win the deal and you need to know how to write a clean offer and what the bank is looking for - this will benefit you more.... more

4 bedrooms sell better than 3 bedrooms in any market. If someone is looking for a 3 bedroom, you will not have any trouble. They might choose a 4 bedroom over yours, but there are probably other reasons. Your home probably has some benefits that the 4 bedroom does not have, like bigger rooms, better??? Well you probably know the great things about your place.
Right now is a tough market to sell a 3 bedroom or a 4 bedroom if it is not priced right and marketed well.
Let me know if I can help you in any way!

Generally, the advantage price.
The home will sell for what the market (perspective buyers) values it at. You won't get stuck looking at the home of some delusional owner who believes his 1970's track home is worth the over-inflated price he bought it for in 2004.
Some foreclosures are pretty well beat up -- holes in walls, leaking roofs, etc -- so you can get quite the fixer-upper at a lower price if you're so inclined.... more
