Most likely no. Any inspections, appraisals are at the buyers expense. A lawyer would be the place to start

Verizon is a bunch of crooks, They will promise you anything to get you to sign up for service and then not follow thru later and send you an enormous bill and deny saying they made deal with you, DO NOT SIGN UP for Verizon
VERIZON - What a bunch of CROOKS! They call and offer a better deal and package and we can save you money, oh but when the bill comes now it twice what it was before. So I call customer service, oh no sir we would never offer that kind of deal, you just have to pay what we send you on the bill. We can lower you service again and you can pay more....Oh really, less service and more money, oh sure sign me up...Forget you Verizon. Time to look for another internet and cable provider....Booo on you Verizon

Your RE agent can also advertise on your local MLS, as they sometimes have a rental section.

Kind regards,

Hi Sharon,

Wanted to second the information you have been provided thus far, you should be ok and able to find a house to rent. The key is for you to be aware you might need to do a little more research and might be required a little more from the landlord. Be assertive and help your landlord understand your a great and responsible tenant. Good luck!!!

I wanted to thank Rob Spinoza for spending the time in helping me understand the cost and breakdown of my new loan Im applying for. It made me feel better after we discussed the breakdown of my GFE and TIL.. He spent the time in the time constraint situation in helping me understand what I didn't know and made me feel better on making that decision. Thanks Rob for your input! ... more

I live in the Capistrano development in Winchester - bought a REO in July 09 for half what the original buyer paid. Yes, the tax rate is very low and the houses are unique - I have a gated courtyard and a casita. Winchester's a bit far out (8 miles to my house from the 15 freeway) but it's quiet and safe out here. Check with the school district though - the area I live in is part of the Temecula school district but just a few streets over it's the Hemet school district. Homes are holding their value pretty well out here in my development - I think that's because the houses in my development are not your typical run of the mill cookie cutter style homes. The important thing to remember for anyone in the market for a home right now is to be buying for the right reason - a family home you can stay in for a while. The market won't be heading North for a long, long time so don't buy with the idea that you're gonna be able to turn around and sell in a few years for a hefty profit - you won't be able to. ... more

If you're still in the market, you're question would be answered even better!

We no longer have thousands of REO's available!!! They're gone....a few stragglers pop up, but not like the past.

Hopefully you were able to purchase one otherwise a short sale or standard (most are over priced..) would be your option today!

First - thank you for serving your country - you deserve every opportunity to buy a home. Please read the blog I posted today on Increasing your Chances of Success as a VA buyer - it�39;s right here on Trulia.
I was helping Marines buy homes in the First Gulf War - still doing it today. I really appreciate what you do for our freedom.
Now go get a house!

Hello future Home buyer. It sounds like you need an agent to provide you with up to date accurate list of available homes in Winchester with a low tax rate. The homes in Capistrano are great! One of the floorplans has a huge courtyard. There are many great buys in this area. I know of some other developments with low tax about 1.1%? Let me know if you'd my assistance with your home search. I can email you a list of available homes in Winchester...this list will be updated daily so the information will be fresh.

All the best!

Sorry- correction to my previous post. The website I referred to is useful to look up taxes only for homes within Riverside County. Other counties have different tax assessor resources.

Hope that helps.

James Gordon ABR SFR SRS answered:
FHA eliminated the need to have a stove in the home you just need a place to hook them up. They will require a working sink or the money to be escrowed to pay a professional to put one in and hook up the water.
Somewhere in all the pages you signed for the sellers addendum it says that you are buying the property "as is". If you do not want to make the repairs before close you may be able to use a financing contingency to get out of the contract but you need the appraiser to go out and you have to pay for that.
I always try to spot the propblems with a property that a buyer may run into on a FHA loan and we address them upfront as much as possible.
