Hello,

I would suggest starting with the Title Company that held escrow and handled the transaction. It was part of their responsibility to obtain a demand from the HOA stating what was due in Fees to bring the property up to date. It could be a simple communication issue...

I hope this helps... Good Luck...!!

Hello orshi.corpos, it depends on if you owned it 5 years or more and if the home you are speaking of is a rental or primary residence. Scenarios can be discussed as to down payment programs choices and fico scores requirements so you can make an informed decision.

The purchase in 94534 zip code for a 3bd 2ba single family home start from 370k.


You may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 2.5 million.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

Good Afternoon,

My first question is... Are you being represented by a buyer's agent? That is the first person you should go to for advice. If not, then you should keep in mind that you are dealing directly with the agent who ( when the home was listed ) was representing the seller. Now if he is representing you as well, you would have signed a "Consent to act" form which gives that agent the authorization to act for both parties otherwise known as "Duel Agency". Some people and many states consider this a "Conflict of Interest" as the agent in question has to look out for the interest of both parties. Keeping this in mind you need to be aware that as long as that agent is representing you, it is his/her fiduciary duty to guide and advise you as best as possible to protect your interests.

Long story short,... you can not be forced into paying closing costs if it was not agreed upon in the initial contract. Based on your agents advice,.. you need to make the choice that works best for you and your agent needs to move forward with your decision.

If this deal doesn't work out for you, I would strongly suggest using the services of a buyer's agent on the next transaction.

If I can be of service to you in the future.. I'm just a phone call away..!

I hope this helps... good luck to you...!!

Ned Tompkins answered:
Lordy! It all depends where you are and what the contract states. The purchase agreement used in most of California stipulates that the seller has certain time frames to get disclosures, etc. to the buyer. The buyer has up to 17 days to do their due diligence, have any inspections deemed of interest, at the buyer's expense. Once you have satisfaction/agreement on all disclosures and disclosures, plus any additional items dealt with, you remove most contingencies & speed to closing. At any time prior to the end of the 17 day period, or fewer days if specified in the contract, any buyer may withdraw their offer without even stating a reason. Your agent, unless really green, should explain this to you. Ned Tompkins, Folsom, CA ... more

Parkerkarenn answered:
I used to live in Coosaw Creek on Wildwood Landing. Wonderful gated, golf course community, clubhouse boasts a resident Chef, and the community pool is nice. If I could pick up the neighborhood and move it to Mount Pleasant I would. I currently live in Dunes West for the past ten years.

The plus side is the regime is lower but the real kicker is property tax. My tax bill in Coosaw was triple the cost than Dunes West. Dunes West in Mount Pleasant has better amentities at a better price with a nicer surrounding area.

If you are truly looking at a golf course community consider Dunes West.
