If the seller was still occupying the property (even after he 6 days) they may have "rights". If they had moved out and all their items were removed, they may not have any right and be trespassing. If they moved but left belongings, they may have a right to be there. There are variables, so you may want to check with the lawyer that drew up the rent back agreement. ... more

Must get a home inspection. Then try to contact (or goggle) the local government (City or County) to discover property facts - who supplies utility services, any easement on property, zoning requirements, etc. The local planning department should have basic facts and figures for the neighborhood. ... more

I agree that if its that important to you to be in one city over another and you're now unhappy with the home and location, then perhaps consult a real estate attorney to find out what your options are. It appears that you may be looking in Granite Bay and if that's the case, its possible that when this home was built it was considered Roseville. What year was the home built that you are in contract on? If you want to contact me, I'd be happy to look it up for you and give you more information that may be helpful to you. All the best to you. ... more

I won't get too analytical here but I would suggest, as others have, that you start with a good lender so you know what you can qualify for. The best advice I will give you from there is to ensure you have liquid assets available after you close escrow. I've owned my own brokerage business for over 30 years as well as a property management business and a broker/dealer. Do not over leverage yourself and be sure to have money available for repairs, some of which can be expensive, as well as periods of vacancy. Do not buy the cheapest home you can find in a worn out neighborhood just because of the price. If you want to maximize your capital gain, go where people are eager to own...not rent. Good luck.
