You can get a FHA 203K loan. Which is a type of a construction loan.
Or, if the current home owners allow you access to the home to make repairs and you have the funds to complete them, you can extend the contract as long as needed. The lender will fund once all parties of the transaction are satisfied. (Including the final appraisal with all improvements verified by the original appraisal, with permits if applicable) ... more

Home inspector is not capable to investigate foundation problem.

You need to hire soil engineer and structure engineer which can easily cost you $3K~$5K.

Foundation level within 1 inch variance over 20 foot span is considered as normal range.

Mello Roos is just part of the formula of payment and price calculations. You'd do well to consider the total monthly cost after all taxes regardless of where you're looking.

Eastvale is one of the high mello roos areas. If you're looking for low mello roos... a high dollar custom home, or a home that's 15+ years old would suit you best.

Good luck with the search Joe.

No, No & No! Diana said it best; You do not have the legal right to do so. Too much liability involved. Damaged property, false claims of damage and the potential for injury are just a few. If anything negative happens, escrow could be seriously delayed (and that would be best case scenario).

Plenty of great answers.

Have a great day and enjoy the next several days before you get your keys!

If you have a full written approval from all lienholders should be a standard 30 day or less close. It will depend on how fast your lender can fund.

92880 is NOT just Eastvale and is truly a Corona zip code. The tax rates are not just Eastvale rates and are as low as 1.06 for the early builds usually pre 1990. This zip hugs River Road/Archibald Road from 91 at S. Main all the way down River as it becomes Archibald to Limonite It feeds Norco as well as Roosevelt high schools. ... more

My wife and I actually are using a great LO who helped us get on the right track to being able to qualify for our loan. He is local here in Corona and has been available night and day to answer any of our questions. He promptly returns calls and e-mails and has been awesome. We are about to open escrow on our first place and wouldn't have been able to get here without him! We told him off the bat we didn't think we were financially able and asked what steps we needed to take to get to a place we could get a loan, and now we are here! I highly recommend him. He recently switched over from a mortgage broker to wells fargo and here is his e-mail and contact info.

His name is Jeff Anderson

Total tax rate for the neighborhoods you mention is up near 2% total. Very high and this will affect your payment substantially. Use caution in committing to a home and check all fees and taxes up front.

Special assessments can change as neighborhoods change. For specific assessments, contact a real estate agent in the city in question. A competent one will know how to find the info for you, and will be happy to do so.

The base tax rate in Riverside County is 1.05% (it goes a few more decimal positions, but that will be VERY CLOSE).

Any special assesments will be assessed on the specific property you're looking at. Fill in the address at the assessor's website and you'll find the breakdown of taxes and assessments for that house...

Good luck,

Hi Hopeful,

Don't be scared by all of the horror stories... I am a buyer's agent and work with a team here in Corona. We've successfully had many buyrs close with short sales. You just have to have agents that can pick out the real deals from the ones that will never close. Sometimes, it can be a nightmare... but if the agent looks for the right type of property and asks the listing agent the right questions, you'll know which ones to avoid and which ones are viable options. ... more

Hi Christine:

Unfortunately right now the County Assessors site does not allow us to get that information because of them updating the information of the resent payments.

You could go to the Riverside County Assorsers Office and ask them directly.

Sorry I couldn’t help further.

If you put an offer on the home, during your discovery time you should receive the NHD which should have the Mellow Roos information in that report. The agent who has it listed should also know.

Good Luck

Hi Adam:

Cheryl is correct. I know that you and many buyers are looking on Trulia and many sites for properties and post questions like yours to us. Which we all answer. My question to you is wouldn't it serve you better if you had a Realtor that you could work with and for you to give you the answers.

If you are truely wanting to purchase a home you should speak to a Realtor to make sure that you are pre pared to purchase. What happens if that perfect home comes along and beleive me if it is that perfect home, it will still go fast in this market, are your ready to have some one write that offer for you, to present your offer in the best light to give you the opertunity to purchase the home.

We do all love your questions and the ability to help you and the other people, I am just concerned as to what will put you and other buyers in the best position to purchase a home? Who will help you through the process?

If I can be of service to put you in the position to help you find a home off Green River in Corona, or Sierra Del Oro or other areas in Corona, please give me a call.

Good evening Peter:

Here is my advice to you. You are on the right track if you have studied the Corona area and have decided on a particular area. The next step is to study the homes that sold in that area. This will give you a very good idea of what homes are really worth in your target area. Then you will be able to “see” a bargain when it comes onto the market. And the bargains are out there! A Realtor, (such as myself), can really help you with this process. Realtors are equipped with the Multiple Listing Service, and many other powerful tools, not to mention lots of experience, at finding deals. Why go it alone? I can set up email notification when new homes become available in your target area. We can preview homes as they come available each week. Give me a call. (951) 237-3229 ... more
