Hello houseguy9, You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your need to know your qualifying perimeters and maximum payment you are looking to achieve.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may consider from as low as 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million.

Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:

The existing inventory of 3bd 2ba condos of 1,462sf built in 2013 start from 918k in 95035 zip code. The existing older single family homes start from 835k for 3bd 2ba 1,168sf updated but built in 1963 in 95035 zip code.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

There is a Union Pacific spur track next to Pulte. I don't live there yet but I did ask a resident and said said in 7 months, he's only heard is 3 times, but it is loud. There is some talk on the Milpitas gov site about relocating it *eventually* but that isn't confirmed.

There a a new school being built right there too, mccandless elementary school, opening in 2018. And The Fields,

Your mother's poor credit (the car getting repossessed) will certainly impact her ability to get a home loan. Talk to a lender to find out just how poor her credit is, and what you can do about it.

A repossession can seriously damage her credit.

Milpitas will be what Sunnyvale was 10-15 years ago. Like it or not that will be the ideal residential for people one head north and other taking 237 to Silicon Valley.

Regardless of the STW odor it has been there before WW 2. You can close your windows or pay more head other neighborhood. 95035 is still an affordable neighborhood for newer homes. But hurry, not long

If it might cause issues for your pavement I would definitely cut the tree down. You may already need repairs so you may want to take a look at the paving as well. If it is damaged then I would recommend taking out the tree and taking care of the repairs for your pavement as well. ... more

r_tpownall answered:
I will have to disagree with most of your answers on the point of the bank not seeing the home. Any home that has gone through a foreclosure has been serviced by a property management company and their vendor/contractors are required to inspect and report back in writing and pictures all that is wrong with a home. So the bank is well aware of any defects or hazardous situations. I know this because I work for one of the top property preservation companies in the US and have uploaded photos and reports on these properties. So I don't think it should be legal for banks to not adhere to the full disclosure act. ... more

Grace Hanamoto answered:
For Harmony in Milpitas, the only service provider is Comcast--at least, for now. I suspect that as the area is completed and more of the lines are drawn into the area, you'll see AT&T offered in the future. As for satellite dish services, because these are condominiums and NOT planned developments, homeowners are likely to be unable to add dishes to the exterior roof of the home, but might be able to put a dish on a stand on a balcony of the home. The Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not have provisions that requires any homeowners association consisting of condominiums to allow satellite dish installations within the community.

Good luck!
