Hello Khalid,

This is downtown. You do not specify what kind of conditions you are looking for, what kind of community, the noise level, the schools, etc. in your question, so I can only offer you some general suggestions I offer to my own clients here:

- Come by the neighborhood and the property at night and during the day, both on weekdays and weekends. See how you feel in the neighborhood; how would you feel if your family lived there?

- Talk to the neighbors around the property - They will be able to tell you much more about the neighborhood and what living there is like than what an agent might be able to tell you.

Good luck to you!

Best regards,

Huey Nguyen

Hello Irma, the rentals in Sylmar start from $1,405 for 2bd 2ba apartment, $1,900 for 3bd 2.5ba condo and the single family homes start from $2,000 for 3bd 3ba home.

These links may assist you with crime statistics:

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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The purchase start from 188k for 2bd 1ba single family home in Sylmar which is as low as $940 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score @188k.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may qualify to buy FHA with 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. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy 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, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

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...

I love the new grocery store across from the montage.. Super fresh, super local and clean! As far as banks go I use Wells Fargo because their lines seem to move the fastest in town.

Yogaworks is very close by on Green st. I live in the San Rafael Hills neighborhood and often walk to that area (just before Old Town) and in to Old Town on the weekends when we can take our time.
If you are looking for an agent for this neighborhood who knows it well, Please give me a call. I would love to help. I have lived in the San Rafael Hills neighborhood for over 15 years and walk it daily.

To the right of that listing there is an area where the person who posted the listing can be contacted by email or phone. The listing says nothing about pets. Your best bet is to contact the person who pasted the ad directly.

All the best,

Crime maps are a great way to get more information on safety in a given neighborhood, and other comentors below have given some links to some very informative maps.

I'd suggest spending some time in the neighborhood your considering to see how you feel - safety is, in a sense, subjective, so if you feel safe in a given home or area, it might be the right place for you, and if you don't, it might not.

Good luck!

Every rental is different. Some landlords will include it and some will not.
If it is not included and if you are in a market where rentals are plentiful, you may be able to negotiate with the landlord to have it included if it isnt already. ... more

Dear Susan,
The best way to find a pharmacy in a new area is by asking your friends and neighbors. If you haven't moved there yet, try calling the real estate agent for that property. The locals will always be able to give you the best information. You can even ask which pharmacy has the best hours or the lowest costs.
