I say leave it empty and clean. when I am home shopping I like to imagine my own items in there... also staging is expensive and you don't always get your house sold faster or money.

Your new broker should be able to assist you in the switch. If they don't want to be bothered then it tells you that you can't count on them.

Hi Luve,
I live in California and own a house in Broward County, Fl, its been a rental for the past 5 years. Now my tenants are leaving and I'm wondering whether is a good time for me to sell and buy in Ca, or keep on renting for one more year.
Would love to hear ideas!
Thank you,

No one knows. But lower oil prices lead to lower interest rates, lower interest rates lead to higher real estate prices.

Give me a call and we can get you per-qualified if you like.

You are buying in 94560 (newark, California), hence you have written a Contract to Purchase using California forms.

The issue is that the Seller has not signed off on the Contingency Removal
and not provided disclosures. It will all come down to whether you and your agent performed in
a timely manner.

Best to get in touch with your Real Estate Agents' Company Attorney.

Good luck.

Hi Kevin

Start with the age of the home.

Check the insulation in the attic, and in the walls.

Check if any Popcorn ceiling, depending on the age of the house,
newer homes are unlikely to have asbestos, otherwise you should find

Call out an Asbestos Inspector, who will check samples.

Good luck

I agree with all the remarks that were given below. If price is a your main motivating factor take the time and do the appropriate updates to maximize your asking price. There are always people looking for a property just like yours.

If you need to sell now and if you have a livable home you will need to have a realtor with a great marketing plan and eye for the market to get it out at the right price to get you into a multiple offer scenario.

As they say, consult a professional.

If you want to buy or sell real estate, ask a realtor.

If you're looking for tax information, ask a CPA

If you have a legal question, ask a lawyer.

We can all download and point to certain links....but what we get may not always be the complete picture.

As has been mentioned, Craigslist is a good place to look. Caveat: Be very careful. We have seen scams attempted on houses that we have listed for sale which are then found on Craigslist being offered for rent by someone who “had to leave the country unexpectedly”. Yeah…because the law is after them. The supposed owners ask you to send money and they will send keys. I have even seen rental scams on
If it looks too good to be true…well…you know the rest.
Good luck.

Dear Vijayakumar,

The LALife Crime Index for Norwalk is 11. That's about 40% lower than the LA County average. It measures violent crime reported, so lower is better.

If you are interested in purchasing a home in the Southern California area, please feel free to contact us at Crestico Realty. We are your ONE stop shop for all your home buying and selling needs.

Thank you!!

CJ Brasiel answered:

I am not the expert, but for the most part two sources of asbestos that may be present in a home are in siding materials on the exterior of the house and/or the infamous "popcorn" ceiling. With either one, the removal pros will test the material first and then let you know if there is enough asbestos to warrant extra caution (special gear to protect workers and more cost) to remove or repair it.

Newark is one of those areas that still has some decreasing prices, as is true with most areas in the Bay Area, but sales are moving quickly. The homes in good condition, and properly priced are selling quickly. In many cases they are selling for over the asking price with multipule offers again. Please do not confuse this with the insanity of a few years ago but with the low prices and record low interest ratesnow, there are many more chances for First Time Buyers and Investors to get into the market.
So, to answer the question, NO Newark is not a depressed area.
