Good for you for doing property due dilligence. Without repeating what is said below, I agree you should move on, but I would add 2 caveats. 1. Send all the information you discovered to both the seller and the seller's agent, in writing. That way, they cannot avoid disclosing it to the next potential buyer. If you really want to bird-dog the thing, when it ultimately sells, send the new buyer a copy of your letter and materials to make sure the agent and seller didn't pull one over one some other dupe. 2. If the seller/agent made material affirmative mis-statements in the listing information or disclosures, then I would request that they refund to you the costs you incurred in connection with your due dilligence.... more
Hi Dbucka, there are many areas throughout San Diego that would fit your needs. The beach areas although costly are highly desired for people in search of rentals not limited to college students. There are a host of areas around SDSU rather it be a SFR or condo/townhome that would probably get you more bang for your buck and keep the property rented through any economic tide. North Park offers a diverse community ranging from hipsters to young executives surrounded by eateries and bars that college students flock to. Zip codes that you will want to explore are, north end of 92105, 92115, 92103, 92116 and 92108. Websites with easy access and use for crime stats are www.crimemapping.com and www.city-data.com and search San Diego. Good Luck.... more
Renting or buying may become an issue when you don't have enough credit, but renting could be faster while you're looking. If you're not qualified to buy yet, you can have a place of your own while you work on it, and paying rent on time will help.
With renting, you just need someone to take a chance. Show landlords and property managers that you and your fiance have a stable work history, and other bills you have paid on time, like a cell phone or car payment, for example. If you've paid your parents rent, show your canceled checks. Then offer to meet them in person and bring your dog, so they can see how sweet she is. If they see she isn't like a stereotypical pit bull, they may take a chance.
As for buying, I can send you a lender or two to talk to. They can see if you'd qualify for anything now, and you'll never know until you talk to a lender. Be prepared to give them ALL of the paperwork that they ask for. It's a hassle, but it's way better to be prepared ahead of time, because surprises are rarely good in escrow and could cost you money.
Let me know if you have any other questions at all.

As the others have said, inventory is low throughout the county, but you are correct in your observation about NP/SP. With prices on the rise, many people are watching the market and seeing how far things will continue to increase before making any moves - especially if they don't have any other motivation to sell.
I would argue that there are other factors to consider if someone is debating whether or not it's the right time to list their home.
1) Interest rates are still very low meaning the market is flooded with qualified buyers that CAN and WILL make offers on homes (creating the bidding wars we are seeing in the Metro Area). This won't last forever and when the demand decreases because rates go up (however gradually), there will be less people hurrying to buy and driving prices up so quickly.
2) New construction permits are on the rise in a big way compared to recent years and people waiting to sell their homes until prices "reach the top" are going to soon realize they are in competition with a lot of new construction coming on the market. Though this probably only relates to NP/SP indirectly.
I have also found that many people who don't have their homes listed may still be interested in selling if the situation arises. I have had some success with direct mail advertising buyers that are willing to purchase their home.

All lenders are not equal.
Two pieces of advice:
First, stay away from Internet-based lenders. Some are OK. Some aren't. But it's better to have some accountability, and the ability to actually deal with a living, breathing person.
Second, ask your Realtor for recommendations. Two reasons: First, it's likely your Realtor will have had actual experiences helping clients get loans, and will have a good idea of which lenders are "better" and which ones aren't. Second, frankly, it's in your Realtor's self-interest to recommend a lender who'll work hard to make sure the loan goes through.
Hope that helps.... more
Not sure if anyone metioned it yet, but also look at "South Park". No, not the cartoon!
South Park is a *very* cute community adjacent to Balboa Park. It's pricier that most of North Park but for vibe and culture it's pretty great. Let's put it this way, I wish I had a few listings there. ;)
If you asking if North Park is an old or young community as far as the demographics of the people, that question can not be answered without violating Fair Housing Laws.
However if you would like to know the general age of the homes, then the answer is old for California standards. I would say that the majority of the homes were built in the 1920's & 1930's. There are homes that are built earlier and some then some in the 40's & 50's.
If you are considering purchasing a home in San Diego, you may find a service that I offer helpful with your home search.

The house sold 05/11/2009 for $340,000. I believe that Trulia requires the listing agent to update the information and will contact Trulia in order to get this listing removed.

Best to you,
Accepting a home at asking price and buying "as is" in the current market is not crazy if the price of the home represents a good value.
On the other hand, as is noted below, a 2% allowance for repairs isn't trivial for the seller, and probably not for you, either. Further, the seller is completely and absolutely within his rights to refuse to pay for any repairs.
As the others say, you can try to negotiate.
Failing that, the only question is: "Is the asking price a fair price for the house in its current condition?" If yes, buy. If no, don't buy. It really is that simple.... more
