Hello Sharma, Hello Wemsf80, 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.

Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:
http://www.greatschools.org/
http://Www.schoolfinder.ca.gov
http://Www.education.com
http://Www.schooldistrictfinder.com
http://Www.schooldigger.com
http://www.sarconline.org/

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. 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.

I am a Veteran and love to assist Veterans. You may qualify for VA or CalVet no down payment loans.
You may also qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Hi Warren,
As a previous resident of Mandeville and board member of the Upper Mandeville Canyon Association / coordinator with the Lower Association (MCA), I am quite familiar with "who" buys here. There are no shortage of buyers for Mandeville (just closed another listing here 2 months ago). Approx 75 percent of my sales in Mandeville are ALL CASH. Buyer financing is actually unusual here in this wealthy community. Let me know if I can help you comp your property. I have sold quite a few homes for out of state sellers on behalf of their aging parents. I have a long list of references from Canyon - past and present homeowners. I can be reached at my Teles Luxury Properties Brentwood office - 310-386-5509 or at WestsideJo@gmail.com. Good luck to you!
Best,

This is probably not the best way to market your home. I would work with an agent to get this on the mls where it will get far greater exposure.

Good luck.

Shelly M answered:
You should take advantage of the assistance offered by one of the agents below as they can help you narrow down your search and show you the ones youre interested in versus spinning your wheels and meeting 8 different 8 agents. I'd stay off Craigslist, there are alot of scams. I've even had one of my listings posted much cheaper on there! Another agent was gracious enough to let me know. But an agent is free to the tenant and will show you legitimate rentals, where you may otherwise not know for sure ... more

Mark Mintz answered:
No. The Listing agent will likely not submit ancillary or superfluous documentation to the bank. The bank will do a BPO (Broker's Price Opinion) which is like a mini appraisal once the SS process has started. By the time they look at comps, the market could have changed from the time the offer was submitted. For example, I have buyers who have been waiting 5 months since their offer was accepted. A BPO was just done this week. The prices have actually increased in that time so whatever comps were available at the time we submitted the offer are irrelevant.

Good luck!

Of course. Housing is a market. If policies change it ultimately effects an educated buyer decision.

If a seller has had a suggestion from their agent that if they can afford to paint and it needed to be painted, they are going to go with a current favorite color palate of buyers. Coffee Brown beats Sky Blue hands down every day in curb appeal. You should be thrilled the sellers painted. ... more

Swbellv, you must not be familiar with the 90049 area. Sunset Blvd. here is quite different than in Hollywood. 90049 is one of the most beautiful communities in the world.

Hello Bridie
Brentwood is a personel fav of mine. I lived there several times. There is health food shops, trendy clothing shops, coffee shops, excellent resturants, workout gyms, and pretty much all the things you might need from day to day.
I have worked in this area for over 26 years, and know it like the back of my hand. The proximty to the shops, beaches, santa monica, palisades, views of the ocean in the hills etc makes it a VERY, VERY disirable place to live. It is just a beautiful ,and peaceful place to be.
Let me know if I can be any help on your searches to the amazing area. If you tell me what you are looking for I can tell what area would most likely be for you in this amazing community.
Feel free to call me anytime if you need any information on current listings.
Best regards,
Neal Grusky

Hi Brad,

The link below gives you access to the MLS guest search. As I understand it, there is a 72 hour lag time between between entering and posting of new listings on the MLS. Brentwood Glen lists as area 6 on the MLS which is included as Brentwood as a whole.

Our office specializes in this area. Please feel free to call me if you need deeper information on a property than you can find on the web.

Best Regards,

I was working with a buyer seeking a similar home in the area and we found a great property! Give me a call, I have a daily updated list of foreclosures. Also, if you are looking for an agent you should always interview them as a first step.
