This depends on the COE days on your purchase agreement once all contingencies have been met, etc.

I would recommend reviewing the sellers disclosures and inspections on a particular house to see the condition. Many property inspections may mention if they found foundation bolts, etc.

Kind regards,

This is a dated but still valid question.....

One should be very careful when it comes to purchasing property that have known code violations. While some are minor and require little to no owner attention there are also those that are very major and could prevent the buyer from obtaining a "certficate of occupancy" until these diffencies are corrected and approved.

Just keeping it real!

Upward until market can not sustain at current level. Everyone knows the shortage of housing and strong demand from high tech industry will push the home prices more.

Just because west & central side of the Santa Clara County have surpassed historically high, there are still many neighborhoods have not still max out yet.

There are plenty of investors who are happy with 3-4% cap rate. Many seem to have forgotten that rentals in the past always ran negative cash flow. There was never a shortage for an investment home since tax write off was useful to offset hefty income from many.

For any loan an appraisal will be required. Your question is whether or not you have to pay an appraisal fee. The simplest answer is ask your lender if they will either waive the fee or reimburse it to you at close of escrow. ... more

It is also depends on the completion of your application and support documentations. But a simple sweet answer would be 2-4 days.

Good luck!

Michelle Carr-Crowe answered:
Are you a new or experienced home buyer? My suggestion would be to ask the agent helping you for assistance and guidance on this.

Checking with the Recorders Office (in person) for direction is a good first step. If you can't get the answers you need there, ask your agent to connect you with a title company to see 1) how much they actually charge, 2) whether anyone working there does or is available for freelance or project work and what their rates are. ... more

You may need to ask an outside neutral third party to examine this for you before you get into contract. You can get a copy of the recorded note at your local County recorder's office to check the terms.

Some second loans end up being "unsecured credit." Most will accept some sort of payment & forgiveness plan (e.g. $50K they may settle for $30K promissory note paid over 5 years).

Maria Cipollone answered:
Of course you have proof, your parents can write a letter explaining that they received "X" amount of money every month from you guys for the past 2.5 years ( it could be any amount that you normally take out from your bank account). If this letter can not help you, look for a mortgage broker not for a loan officer from any bank to assist you with your loan. Mortgage brokers have access to many banks, private lenders and many different programs.

Best of Luck,

Andrea Wince ~ Lic. 01439761 answered:
Hello Pam, most active agents in our area have experience with purchasing REO properties and I am one of them. The majority of us use standard California Association of Realtor forms for purchase offers. Typically with REO props, the banks come back and counter with their own contracts, forms, addendums, etc. and it can seem overwhelming to first time REO purchasers. Furthermore, the banks are exempt from standard disclosures as to known defects of the property (because they never lived in them) so it is imperative you get a good home inspection once you are in contract, and have an inspection contingency in place. I rebate my client's cost of their home inspection back to them at the close of our escrow because I don't want my buyers to purchase property that has not been inspected. Whether or not it is REO. Check my website below along with my client testimonials, resume', and other information you will find there. If you feel comfortable working with me, please give me a call and I will be happy to represent you and help you to navigate the process. Kind regards, Andrea Wince. ... more
