I have helped renters buy homes they are living in before. It is possible to them way below market.

Give me a call if you want me to try.

Hi Rebekah,

It will be a dramatic change from the East Coast that's for sure. The 29 Palms area is a fantastic area if you can appreciate the beauty of the desert. I have a link to a video that will give you an idea of the landscape and what to expect.

The area has a mix of homes that range in age, with some of the newer communities being as new as 2006 or currently developing. Swamp coolers are typical on the older properties but the newer properties generally have air conditioning standard. Some of the properties will have on site propane tanks rather than natural gas which is something that most people are not familiar with however there are local business that have programs to keep the tanks filled.

I do have properties in the area that might fit your needs and I am a Military Relocation Professional Feel free to contact me directly if I can be of any help in your search.

They may need some rentals for workers at the casino.
You cannot rent it out, and claim that income to help with qualifying for a new loan, until you have a two year record. (Kinda defeats the purpose, nuh?)
If you're only $10 or $15 upside-down, you maybe should wait it out.

Property values aren't changing much, but prices are certainly moving up very quickly, in the double digit percentages in the past year.

Michele....if the sale closes before 12/31/2012 AND is was occupied as your primary residence you would not owe tax on the sale.....the mortgage debt relief act is set to expire at the end of this year, and if not extended would certainly change things!! yes, you will receive a 1099 on the sale, and it is reported for tax to check with your accountant to be sure of the tax implications ... more

Definately a question for a real estate attorney. California is a community property state and there may be a very good chance that your mother held an interest in the 29 Palms property and was entitled to her share at the close of escrow. If this was a property in 29 Palms that she owned 37 years ago and you are just now realizing this fact the likelihood of receiving proceeds are not going to be worth the time or trouble. But I do not know all of the facts and you are in the best hands going to a lawyer. Good luck!
