If anyone tells you they know, it probably means they don't know that they do not actually know.

Terry Chan answered:
It also depends on the bank. I know some credit unions out here will give you primary residence interest rates on second/vacation homes. I'd recommend buying a modular home that comes with the land, otherwise it won't appreciate with the market.

But as long as your daughter is able to secure a loan on the property, she can rent it out to you a as long as that's allowed in the CC&Rs. Some require a certain percentage of the units to be owner occupied, but your daughter can add your name to the title to get around this.

Linda Slocum, CRS, CDPE | Santa Clarita Realtor answered:
It sounds like you reviewed someone else's home inspection instead of paying for your own. If this is true, then it sounds like you took a short cut could will cost you.

If you paid for your own inspection and this was something that should have been caught during the inspection, then contact the inspector. You may have some recourse there, but with galvanized pipes (which it sounds like you have), they would have been responsible only for reporting items that were visually inspected (without breaking into walls) as well as the operation of all plumbing fixtures. The seller may not have been aware that anything was wrong, since galvanized pipes deteriorate over time.

If you requested a home warranty through escrow, then the warranty should cover these issues for the price of your deductible (usually about $45 per visit).

I think that it would be a perfectly fine area to live in. I've been to the area several times myself, though not to that exact street. As long as you have a good security system you'll be just fine. That is true I think for pretty much most areas. ... more

RonS answered:
31% on the front end (31% of your gross income as an allowable debt towards housing expenses) and 43% on the back end (43% of gross income divided by your housing and other credit related expenses (Child support, car payments, credit card payments, etc.. Not gas, food clothing, etc..) is the amount that the industry says they will allow you to go up to (Higher in some circumstances). That may be too high for your confort level, may not but that is the guideline they use to qualify you.

FICO is another story. How low is too low? It all depends. How long ago was your short sale? What is your FICO now (Don't use the fico score from or some free credit report, they aren't the same)?

Over the past 6 months, the average sales price in Rancho Hermosa has been $225,000. Since this home has a view and otherwise appears to be in average condition, the recent sales price of $235,000 is about right. ... more

Joseph Arendsen answered:
I get asked this question a lot and it’s a tough one to answer. I absolutely agree with the answers you have been given below but I also believe it’s because Oceanside has a bad reputation, which is definitely not deserved. I have lived and sold real estate in the north county coastal area my entire life, and I see Oceanside as being one the best areas to invest in. If you have any questions about the area feel free to contact me, and I’d be happy to give you some local insight.

I assume you are referring to a HOA board. My guess is that information is included in the HOA bylaws.
Good luck

Ben Altman answered:
Board members can only be recalled the same way they were elected; by an election. First, you should look at your By Laws as it should tell you the process. If you can not find anything there read California Civil Code section 1357 to 1369. On the recall documents you can not put information on why you want a recall as it might by considered campaigning. When you mail out the recall requests you can mail a separate letter explaining why you want the board members recalled. I’m not an attorney.

Best of luck.
