The price seems to be on the lower side. Call the owner and ask to see the home. Don't send any money before meeting someone on the property and verifying the ownership.

Whatever listing you saw that says this house is rented for only $900 a month is a scam. It could easily rent for over $2500 per month.

Please read my blog for some helpful tips for avoiding scams:

Good luck.

This property closed escrow June 21, 2013 and sold for over the asking price.
The listing office was Real Smart Properties and the selling office was Coldwell.

If you are curious about the up to date listing and sales price, contact a Realtor and become informed of all the activity in Shelter Creek. There have been many many condos that have sold in the past couple of months, and there are many that are for sale.

Hope this was helpul.

Guess what … if the listing has the logo for RealtyTrac ...

Then what you are seeing is NOT an actual listing … it is an advertisement for RealtyTrac.

It's not available.

RealtyTrac is a provider of data for distressed homes. This data is used by investors and Realtors to track distressed homes. When you see the RealtyTrac logo, you are not looking at a home that is actually available for you to buy: what you are seeing at is either (1) the notice of default for one of the mortgages on the property in question, (2) a notice of an impending trustee sale or (3) a notice of a completed trustee sale.

RealtyTrac notices can be very deceptive because they usually give loan amounts, not the purchase price or fair market value. When and if this particular property hits the market, it will be at market price for the neighborhood.

Bottom line: RealtyTrac is trying to get you to sign up for their service.

If you want to know when these or similar properties will actually hit the market, have a Realtor set you up with an auto-feed that will alert you the moment they become active on the MLS.

Vicki Moore answered:
Hi Michael - There are a lot of reasons the foreclosure sale would have been stopped or delayed. In other words, although it went up for sale doesn't necessarily mean it sold.

Perhaps a call or visit to the county recorder's office would be of assistance.

Best wishes

HOA $311. per month

Property taxes would vary depending on much you buy the property for but if you buy it for the advertised list price it would be $2,000 per year.

Donna Black answered:
The answer to that question depends on the final sale price of the take the home owner
monthly association fee and you take the final sale price of the property to determine the taxes.......a good rule
of thumb is to multiply the final sale price by at least 1.25% and that will give you an idea of your yearly
taxes and divide by 12.

Hi Hadi,

What you are seeing is a notice of default. Keep your eye out and in the future this home may be on the market at as a foreclosure.

If the price interested you, then it may be useful to know that the lowest priced single family home in San Bruno is currently $348,880 (It is a 2Bed/2Bath).

If it was the street that interested you, there are currently no homes for sale on Crystal Court in San Bruno.

Let me know if you would like any further help in your home purchasing process.
