No one from Trulia may see your post in Q and A. The fact is that a computer program is used to set values and can move the value when lower priced homes sells. It is not without error and should not be used to judge what a homes value actually is, for that you need an appraiser or a well experienced agent who cn complete a broker price opinion for you. ... more

I am not sure if this is possible to do anymore. I have been having problems updating information on my Trulia profile and when I go into my Zillow account, I can not access my Agent Hub. I have emailed both Trulia and Zillow and have received no response. It is becoming very frustrating! This is just more proof that you can't trust many of these sites. ... more

You will find that You would be able to add your name to the loan,but it is unlikely that the lender would release the current borrower from responsibility, and their name would remain on the loan. As mentioned in previous answers the loans now, and have done for some time carried a due on sale clause, and the lender will become aware the change when the insurance is altered to another name.

Should you add your name to the loan the current home owner would have to cover themselves legally just in case you should default in your payments. I have never done this with any of my clients,but I am fairly certain that a good real estate attorney could draw up a document that would protect the previous owner. However to give the previous owner that sort of protection would probably not be to your best advantage.

I would say that if you can afford the home then with the current rates of interest you would be better to just get a new loan. Keeping in mind that you would have to qualify for that loan. and if you can qualify it is possible to secure a loan with a very small down payment , although you would have to pay PMI (private mortgage insurance). But if it your desire to own a home of your own, and you do not have a large down payment it would be a much better way to go than putting yourself in a position where the loan could be called by the bank and you lose out.

Hello 93001 Home Seller,

An experienced realtor, such as myself, can assist with a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) she can give her opinion of the property's value based on the condition, square footage, lot size, number of bedrooms, upgrades, etc... compared to the most recent home sales within a mile to base the value of your home. Since there is a shortage of homes and lots of buyers I would price your home just above the CMA value. If you are not working with a realtor at this time give me a call as I am very familiar with Ventura.

I believe you are looking for the name of the 'landlord/owner' for this Seneca Gardens condo. It would not be appropriate to blast this information in a public access portal, such as Trulia. Any local area real estate agent can access this information within a matter of minutes for this or any of the other 39 units in the complex. Make it a great day! ... more

I have lived in Ventura for over 50 years and even when I spent a few years having to live in converted step van I was never hassled by Ventura P.D.. As long as you're not an ass they are good folks in my book. If you're going to act like an ass while on vacation it doesn't much matter where you go you're going to leave on probation. ... more

Helly Beny,

The Brock Hills homes are beautiful. Yes, they do have foundation problems. Not all, but most. You can easily see them in the sidewalks leading to the houses, garages, patios, and other areas. The issue is not the foundations per se; it is the hillside itself.

Rumors abound, don't they? So far, the homes are still standing and the rumors have not come to pass. Anytime you purchase a hillside property, you want to see if there is any current information with regard to hillside stability. There will always be rumors!

Please make sure you get your information from a LOCAL realtor. The homeowners association has no information to give you in this. They are there to collect the $$ for commen area maintenance. Good luck, and if you decide to purchase a Ventura property, please call me - a VENTURA realtor!
