Ivyemae,

If you think that you can get a heck of a deal by buying that property for the price shown in the RealtyTrac posting to which you have linked..think again!

The link that you provided is to a posting by RealtyTrac that is really a come-on to get you to sign up for their subscription reporting service. RealtyTrac is not a real estate company. RealtyTrac does not sell houses. RealtyTrac is a reporting service. They take information from public records about foreclosures, notices of default, lis pendens and other such filings and report them to their subscribers. Information from RealtyTrac can have value for those who understand what they are getting and how to use the information but RealtyTrac postings on Trulia.com are abbreviated versions and are misunderstood by many who think the postings are showing properties that are for sale at very low prices.

For information on how to buy a bank owned property, check with a local Realtor who can explain the process and give you valuable assistance

Mello-Roos can last a specific number of years or can go on forever.
Although originally intended to fund building projects, Mello-Roos funding has also taken on the role of paying for day-to-day operation of government facilities and services. For example, if a subdivision is built on the outskirts of town and the police department needs to add officers and cars to service this area, that extra expense can be funded through Mello-Roos. That subdivision is simply designated a "community facilities district" and the new homeowners are slapped with Mello-Roos assessments.
Many city governments have become addicted to Mello-Roos style funding, since they usually get a lot of push-back from the community is they attempt to raise local taxes. Mello-Roos was originally devised by state lawmakers to counter the effects of Prop. 13, which restricted tax increases.
Anyone considering buying a home where Mello-Roos taxes are in place should thoroughly research the past and current use of Mello-Roos funding. If Mello-Roos has or is being used to fund daily government operations, it is highly likely that those payments will never go away - even if the current funding has an expiration date. It's far too easy for government officials to keep going back to the trough.

Hi Eric:

Thank you for your interest in our beautiful desert cities & lifestyle.

Palm Desert is the center of the desert cities with the McCallum Theater for live entertainment, The Living Desert, El Paseo Drive for upscale shopping & dining, plus numerous other things to do & see and is close to all other cities from Palm Springs to La Quinta that also have their share of great venues for fun and entertainment.

Bermuda Dunes is a small area that borders on Palm Desert. I just had a buyer purchase a home in Bermuda Dunes Country Club with a large living space & great panoramic views of the mountains for $225,000 and there are many other great homes for sale as well in the area. The median home price for homes currently on the market in Bermuda Dunes is $329,000 and the median price for homes sold in the last 6 months is $225,000. Bermuda Dunes even has its own airport!

If you play golf, this is a golfers paradise. Nothing in the valley is more than 15-25 minutes away and there is no limit to what you can do or see for entertainment, dining, shopping, golf, hiking, biking, tennis or sightseeing.

Please view my website to search for all properties listed on our local multiple listing service in the desert. If I can be of help, please let me know.

Come on out & see what we have to offer!

Mimi: If you have two full baths then it is just a mistake that the tax assessor made when the property was built. Sometimes when there are "options", to include certain features the assessor only goes by the original plan. If you plan on listing your home just have your agent include that there are two full baths and then when the appraiser comes out to value your home it will be included in the value.

Lisa, the tax records for Riverside County are currently showing this house last sold in March 2006 to a couple from Morgan Hill, California. I've sent you an email with the owner information if the email address you put in your question is a valid one.

Hello Des
No, there is nothing wrong with the fairway. It just so happens to be that the right buyer hasn't come along yet. Are you the buyer this property is waiting for?
