Hello Home Seeker,
As your probably know, these purchases require all cash. I do have a company I work with that I can refer you to that will represent you at the sale and do the checking to insure the property has clear title at time of the auction and also will bid on it for you. If that seems like something you are interested in, please let me know email@example.com They specialize in purchasing properties at auction for clients.
They have purchased over 75 properties in the past 12 months at auction and can get through all the hoops for you.

Frankly, most people don't, and most transactions go smoothly. However, it's always advisable to have an attorney look over the contract. And it becomes even more important if the transaction is in any ways unusual. One caution, just as real estate agents aren't lawyers, lawyers aren't real estate agents. They're lawyers, and--depending on their knowledge and their temperament--are looking for problems. That's what they're paid to do. So some have earned the reputation as deal-breakers.
The cost can vary, depending on how "standard" your contract is, your lawyer's knowledge of real estate (you don't want someone who has to spend a couple of extra hours researching terms and concepts that a real estate lawyer should know), and the lawyer's hourly rate. The cost might range anywhere from $250-$750, though you might find numbers outside those bounds, too. One other option is to sign up with one of the prepaid legal services. They do use real lawyers. And though my experience with them hasn't been particularly good, it certainly would be much better than nothing. And prepaid legal services typically run $29-$49 a month.... more
My first thought it.....you're still paying two mortgages. The first one is your landlords mortgage, which you are helping him pay down by paying rent. The second mortgage will be on your own home, which you will use at best 20% of the time.
Have you thoroughly explored buying in the LA area? Even a small starter home to build some equity and reap the tax benefits?
Any tax benefits you may have in buying a vacation home will be quickly eaten up by paying rent....which is money down the drain.
Do you have a good lender to speak with about this?... more
Most agents specialize in a geographic area, and within that area may have areas of expertise that are more specific. I think your friend would have more luck focusing on a few primary cities/areas, and then interview some agents. If it were me I always want to sit down and talk with potential clients regarding their needs to I am sure I understand exactly what they are looking for. If I were talking with your friend, I would suggest that he do the same with agents. If they don't interview him (her), then he/she should do the same.
Sit down, explain what the target is, ask the agent about their focus, and go from there.
Hope this is helpful..... more
