Solomon Greene answered:
Great question.

My recommendation would be to reach out to an agent around the first of October if you'd like to be in your home by the end of January. Now would be a good time for you to pull your own credit reports and make sure that YOU know what is going on there, especially in light of this recent news reports.

When you're ready, I can get you in touch with lenders who participate in various down payment assistance programs and grants that may help ease your path into home ownership.

Good luck.

I asked the question about FHA requirement on heating they states operate without human intervention for extended periods of time. No one can tell me what the extended period of time is. I have a central wood pellet furnace that can run a good week without human interventions. I think the FHA lenders are being too strict. Now my realtor states an conventional loan won't even work for me that I'd need a cash buyer. The buyer wants to install electrical baseboards but keeps our furnace. We are ready to walk. Both realtors knew of our heating system. Further, we found out the buyer is friends with one of the inspectors and the appraisals agent. Both realtors want us to install a propane furnace. We don't have the money they want to have the HAVC company loan us the money but they put a lien on our the home and are charging us lawyer fees. We think we are being duped. ... more

Oh my God! Lol! The people bashing Hemet be like, "Oh, don't move here to Hemet! Sixth worst place to live in California!" I'm not saying that there aren't neighborhoods that don't have their troubles, but all you naysayers who are so against Hemet, I invite you to do a social experiment. Move out of Hemet. Stay a week in one of my top 5 worst places in California. 5)Adelanto 4)Victorville 3)East Long Beach 2)Compton 1)San Bernardino. I guarantee you that when you hear about your next door neighbor had just been robbed, beaten, and stabbed to death, you'll definitely have a change of heart. ... more

I never get a callback. My messages are clear and concise. I am polite and usually have one or two questions I'd like answered before scheduling a showing. I am never inappropriate and never ask to pay less rent etc. YET, I have only had one response after sending about 20 requests for a showing in one week. I have called and left messages when a phone number is provided and had a little luck that way. I left several messages directly from this site as well as two voice mail messages for Alexandria about an apartment. Finally, after no responses, I contacted a business located in the same apartment building. The owner of the business told me I'm not alone. She's getting numerous calls about the apartment and how Alexandria is not returning calls....but,neither are other agents. I simply do not understand. ... more

Buyer beware. Villas equipped with Sylvania circuit breakers that may cause fires. The circuit breakers are red/blue/or red/green and were installed around the time that the faulty breaker design was being sold - 1979 through early 80's. Have electrician look into if you are serious about buying....And keep in mind you are attached on both sides with residents who have similar breakers. ... more
