Yes, Ana Verde is as nice as it seems for several reasons: many of the acreage size lots are mostly usable, with views of the valley, Palmdale lake and aqueduct, and within close proximity and access to the #14 freeway and consumer amenities. The Ana Verde Tracts consists of several different builder developments with very affordable HOA's. The community has added the parks, infrastructure is being expanded, and building is continuing. ... more

Ron Krauch answered:
This is an old question, but still relevant. And I will give you an even older answer from a broker who sold houses in the Detroit area for years...

He boiled it down to two things that affect the sale of a house (and pretty much everything else). Price and terms. There are the details, of course... size, condition, but price and terms rule.

Hopefully, you've sold by now...

As a matter of office policy, we require all paperwork signed by agents and clients to be done so in their legal name. ie. the name on their driver's license, passport.

If you don't have a written policy on this, now would be the time to establish one. That way there is no confusion in the future.

I do question why someone would ask you that. My Spider-Sense is tingling on that one.

Good luck!

There is a short sale disclosure which allows offers to be submitted as back up offers even though they are in escrow and the transaction is pending.

Self Employed Mortgage Loans answered:
Everyday we speak to self-employed people here in California that are successful and have good credit but are routinely turned down by banks and brokers when applying for a loan to purchase or refinance their home.

The typical problem that self employed people run into is that they write off business expenses on their income taxes each year. It's a catch 22. If you write off most or all of your businesses expenses, it appears to a mortgage lender that your yearly net income isn't sufficient. On the other hand, if you do not claim many write offs for expenses, you immediately set yourself up for paying higher income taxes.

However, that no longer has to be an issue in your search for a home loan. We can now help locate specialized loan products tailor-made for self employed and high net asset clientele in California only.

We have access to new mortgage options such as:

1. 12 months of business or personal bank statements

2. 1 year tax returns (no more 2 year averaging)

3. Substantial assets

4. No income ratio for loans under 50% LTV

In the past, a majority of self employed people would simply seek out a stated loan in order to purchase or refinance property. After the housing and mortgage meltdown, many of these loan programs simply disappeared. Lenders soon became more stringent with their lending guidelines and it became subsequently harder for people who owned their own businesses to qualify for financing. Now that the real estate market is making its way back, a small number of lenders are now expanding their guidelines to become more attractive to certain buyers who have been neglected.

Give us a call at 800-598-9790 or visit for more details.
