Foreclosures are bank owned properties. They don't have to fill out any sellers disclosure and that's why you are buying at your own risk. You'll probably get the home at a lower price, although nowadays I've seen many there are getting too expensive. ... more

Hi, A good place to start would be getting a loan approval to see if you qualify.

Hi Michelle,

There are many well-priced mortgage options with as little as 10% down, and sometimes even this difference in required savings is a game changer for the buyer. Once you are looking at a jumbo mortgage (and I'm not certain you'd even need that here), we can actually get to a purchase price well above $1MM with as little as 10% down. Let me know if you have any questions about this type of financing and if we can provide any details for what you feel is a realistic situation for you. Thank you! ... more

There are agents out there who will accept a flat fee commission. I would consult with agents in the Santa Clara area. Have you tried the platform You can compare realtor services until you find one who will commit to your flat fee offer. Hope this helps! ... more

Did the house sell or did the seller's take it off the market? If you feel the agent acted unethically you can file a complaint through the Bureau of real estate.

I would ask for recommendations from local agent's. Often it is the individual escrow / title agent that may be reviewed.

Yes, it can be done, but the lenders who offer it many times want American Credit, so that is not reasonable to expect. The rates are not pretty on those many times.

It is much easier to go to 50%.

Yeah many do this and call it 'creative financing' however if you can afford it have a real estate attorney look over the details, and then decide what to do based on his/her findings that would relate to the real estate laws in your state. ... more

Properties have a deed, not a title. Cars and trucks have a title. This makes me wonder a company is called a "title company" when relating to the process of researching the deed, etc.

Leave California - Go to small towns in Dakotas, Montana, Nevada, or deep South. Should be able to get a decent place for under $1,500 per month. Schools/jobs - who knows.

The 3% is the commission the builder typically pays the real estate agent for bringing them the buyer. We do the same thing: keep 1% of the 3% commission and give you 2%. That's $8,000 we would give you on a $400,000 new home purchase. This is on top of any of the builder's promotions or incentive that they offer at that time. We represent you in your purchase, including negotiating a price for you if that is what you want. We offer this 2% cash back on any new construction home in Florida, dependent on the builder agreeing to pay us a typical 3% commission. www.We Give
