DB answered:
I've lived in North Fontana for 7 years now and I really don't even notice it's there. It does not smell and there's no trash floating near the facility. I'd bet that most residents don't even know there's a landfill in Fontana. The Northern part of Fontana is growing like crazy and is still affordable. There's something like 30,000 homes planned in the next 10 years and they're all extremely nice developments so far. If you're considering moving I'd focus on communities above Baseline and no further East than Alder - more specifically check out Citrus Heights, Shady Trails and Bella Strada as some of the nicer communities. ... more

Hello freeman, If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Hello Gsanchez6, you will first need to be pre-approved to be able to know your purchasing power and how much you qualify for from a licensed loan originator. Do you have recent credit reports or have any idea of your scores?

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to submit offers on homes of your choice. You will need to gather documentation such as one month paystubs, two month bank statements, last two year tax returns, 1040's, 1099's, W2's and all schedules, copies of drivers license/ID and social security card for each applicant.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down. You may consider a 3%-5% Sapphire Grant down payment program up to 417k from a minimum 620 fico score which does not have to be repaid. You can close with less than first, last and security deposits of a rental...

In your area (Fontana) I would go to the Century 21 King Office. I recently worked with that office on transaction and I would say that office has a good thing going. Perhaps you can start off by assisting an agent or two on evenings and weekends until you know what you are doing. You may be able to double up on Open Houses on Saturdays and Sundays. When I started, I jumped right in and learned as I went along. After a while I sort of had a mentor and he helped me understand a lot.
Once you get a few sales under your belt and have a decent savings the time will come to decide whether or not to quit your day job. I had to do that when it was my time. I resigned from my stable career and entered into the world of Real Estate Fulltime. That was the best thing that I ever did for myself. I have never looked back and I get so much more fulfillment out of my career now.

Best of luck!

Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group answered:
So I'm curious... This question was asked back in 2008. So what did you decide Rahul? Did you try the loan modification or opt for the foreclosure? Where are you now? I have helped clients that have had a foreclosure on their record and they are now back on their feet, in homes and life is good for them. No more doom and gloom on the horizon.

I am going to assume you are new to Trulia and not completely familiar with the rules. This forum, the Q&A forum, is for consumers to ask questions of professionals, or for professionals to ask advice from other professionals. It is NOT for self-promotion. In fact, if the administrators see your question, they will pull it down. I would recommend you remove the question and, instead, write a blog explaining how you help people get their homes sold. Blogging is a great way to promote yourself here on Trulia, I highly recommend it. ... more

Sounds like you are a landlord. You own the home and someone else pays the mortgage.

If you buy another home, you will not be a first time buyer.

Wayne Wainwright answered:
Good evening eknutson90,
As I am sure you have experienced that inventory in the 92336 area is limited. Based upon your approved loan amount of $239k, It may be a good idea to try searching a little further east; i.e. Rialto or San Bernardino. I suggest you at least explore these areas since there is more inventory within your price range. I can ensure you that you will be able to find a newer home in the 3+ bedroom range. I'd be more than happy to assist you. Please visit my web-site at http://www.greaterloans.com, or contact me at (909)380-6132 for more information.... ... more

So is everyone else. The best thing to do is hire a real estate agent that can assist you in your search and help you get the best deal possible. I wrote a blog that contains the seven steps to buying your first home. I'll put a link to it in the web reference below. That should answer all of your questions.

My suggestion to this question would be may be in different cities ,not good in the same city ,you should work with an agent you are pleased with ,have a good relationship to help you with your home or investment .Would have be fair to either agent ,that is why some agents insist on buyer/broker
contract signed so the buyers don't go else where ,I don't belive in that good service and rapport with each other to build long term business .Good luck ! HENA BROKER 760-251-2868
