Chrisanne.blank asked:
I'm trying to determine how restrictive the Association is, and whether they allow things like back yard chickens, etc. How intrusive are they regarding what you do on your own property?

You should inquire about the village codes....
If it requires the safety barrier (which your insurance should have requested already!) but besides that
if and I am sure there is that rule, if and when the new buyer will have a look - likes the home - you come to an agreement on the price and he then has the inspection, the inspector will bring it up, and then the buyer will wonder how much money that is, and ask it from you in the after inspection negotiations.....

Contact the village civil engineering and zoning division, if you have a plat bring it and have them tell
you what will be required at this time...and read Ron's info below as well.

Good Luck to you

Hi Chad,
It's hard to say without knowing the specifics of your transaction. From your question, it doesn't sound like you have an agent representing you. If you can't work something out with the seller, and cancel, I would seriously consider getting representation before you enter into a contract on another home. If the seller agrees to $10K in closing costs, that shouldn't be too big of an issue. Your closing costs really shouldn't be too much more than 3%. The $5K in flooring is tricky. They're just going to give you $5K in your pocket. Lenders will rarely allow that. Is it new construction? In new build situations, you can sometimes finance flooring. Another option is trying to work out an escrow hold back on the flooring. Some lenders will allow that. If none of those options are available, I agree with Dan. Ask the seller to reduce the price, so that you are still getting what the seller agreed to (their bottom line doesn't change, if anything, all expenses based on purchase price i.e. commission, title/escrow fees, will go down a little), and save for the new flooring OR get a credit card (AFTER closing, don't ruin your loan approval!) and put the flooring in yourself.

Feel free to call me if you have any other questions.

Jon Erro answered:
The area went up about 20% in value last year. This year values will remain steady, but some sellers will see the gains from last year and project even higher values in their asking price. Rather than making a broad generalization about prices I think its best to ask your agent to compile comparable sales that have recently closed to measure the sellers sale price that is being offered. In some cases offering 10% less might make sense, other times offering 10% could make sense. It really depends on the property and the way the seller has priced it. ... more

Keri Cook answered:
Hi Chantelle,

There is no set time, because it will depend on many factors. For one, if it is a short sale, the timeline is entirely dependent upon the bank, how busy they are, where they are in the short sale process, and how many offers they are reviewing.

If it is not a short sale, there may still be numerous offers, which will have to be reviewed by the agent, as well as the sellers. Then, you have to factor in the possibility of the sellers being out of town, or unable to review them for other reasons.

Generally, you will ask for a three day response, which you may or may not get, especially in today's market! It is hard to wait, but it's kind of inevitable!

Best of luck to you, and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you!

Paul Tarr III, Real Estate Pro in Ramona, CA

Paul Tarr III answered:
Ramona is a lifestyle. It is relaxed. Blue jeans, no ties. Neighbors are concerned for each other. Most people know something about tractors or horses, or know somebody that does. It is easy to be involved in the community, and a lot of fun. The chamber mixers are a bunch of friends getting together. Most kids can be in the parades down Main Street at some point because Mom or Dad is involved in something. Most everyone has an opinion on which roads need fix'in and which ones don't. Ramona has values. We expect to stand and pledge allegiance to our flag and have a prayer at any function. I can honestly say in 22 years traffic has not been a consideration in my life. The community service clubs are active and getting some good things done. The Rotary sponsored 4th of July fireworks event has become a major gathering after 18 years. Kiwanis and Rotary put on the MusicFest event that has become a gathering. My kids frequently say (like tonight) that they have a friend at school that knows who I am. It is very much a traditional American small town like that. Lots of churches have extended families that weave into the fabric of our town.
So, will Ramona be a good place to retire? I'm looking forward to it.

Tonya Hardes…,  in Ramona, CA
Sun Feb 27, 2011
Tonya Hardesty answered:
Yes. All the previous responses are correct. If the minimum reserve price isn't met, then it won't sell... but will most likely make an appearance later. If you loved a specific house, then call a Realtor and get them to contact the bank who owns the house and see what's up. The tricks with the banks right now has to do more with getting government kick-backs to be able to show a loss on their books, then it does with unloading property.

I'd be happy to help!

Pomerado Hospital in Poway seems to be the closest but it might depend where in Ramona your coming from. Here's a link to Pomerado's information,, but I would suggest going on to and looking them up yourself to get a better idea.

Have a great day!

The current $8,000 stimulus tax credit is available on home purchases that _close_on or before November 30,2009. So as the deadline draws near....Buyer beware if you are looking at short sales. These take notoriously longer to close, and multiple offers are accepted. In this scenario, your window of opportunity could run out on you. ... more
