Dear Amit Jalota,
New homes in Loma Vista are still a good buy. They are also in Clovis Unified School District, just different schools than Copper River area. Copper River area is in 93730 zip code and its homes are one of the highest price per square foot due to their schools that are newer and more favorable to some people who love to play golf. If you go further South, the houses cost less per square foot. Depending on your personal preference and what is more important to you, the area or the house size. I have sold homes in both areas.
I usually give a complimentary city tour to my new qualified buyers from out of the area so they will experience our friendly Fresno/Clovis community.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to call me at (559)797-2411.
Thank you.

Blessings,

It depends on a number of factors. I am sure you thought it was an easy question right?

One thing that happens quite a bit is that homes close late and people find themselves needing to make a payment that they were expecting. So a letter of explanation might get you past one 30 day late. But otherwise it is 12 months unless there was NOD, short sale or any other mortgage problem like a loan modification.

Then it goes out longer and it depends on which type of loan you are looking at and how much month you are putting down. Quite frankly the exact amount of time for each of these has changed so much I even see underwriters who are not sure.But if you have any of the above it is generally 2-4 years.

You can get the FHA back to work program which allows you to buy after 12 months. You have to take a class, and wait 30 days after the class.

Finally there are loans with no waiting period they require about 20% down and the rate is between 6-11% depending on your credit score.

I can arrange that for you if you would like. Call me at:

Nathan, you bring up a lot of good points when choosing to purchase a home near a dentist office. One thing to consider is how you likely would have to shop around for a dentist. Who knows maybe that dentist lives in your neighborhood and would help you out with dental procedures. I have a dentist that lives down the street from me and I am very glad to be friends with him as I know who to go to when I need something done in a hurry. http://www.roykalidental.com/ ... more

Welcome to Clovis, Fiona.
The home price will be determined by which high school area, age of the home, the home and neighborhood amenities Homes in the Clovis North High School Area is usually higher because the school is newer.
In Clovis School Unified School District you could expect to pay around $130+ per square feet. For custom homes the price per square feet is about $200+. Average lot size is about 6,000-13,000 in the city. It's best to rent a home first to figure out what areas that you prefer and fit your family needs. For a larger lot over 2 acres, homes could go around $550k and up.

I work with a lot of out-of-town clients and I will be glad to give you more information and a city tour.
Here's my contact information: (559) 797-2411.

I've sold a number of foreclosures. The pros are you can obtain a good home at a reasonable price. The cons are you should be willing to investigate by investing in the due diligent inspections which are allowed to all buyers. As stated by others below, foreclosures are sold "as is". A foreclosure can have "heath and safety issues" which you would want to investigate prior to purchase. Generally, in a traditional sell, you have a 17 day period for inspections after accepting the offer, however, most foreclosure sellers change the contract to a 10 day period. In any case, you would have sufficient time to conduct those inspections prior to purchase.

Broker Puneet Bhargava answered:
Hi Amber,

Q----! I have heard the same about location. What is the average time it is taking to sell a house in Clovis? How many offers are being put a house recently listed?

Ans---The average time for sale of house in Clovis may be just 7 days, provided the house is listed at correct price supported by CMA. , condition of house is good, and easy showing, with proper advertising.

Central Valley has shortage of listings, as such houses are selling real fast. Most of houses have bidding wars, most of the properties have multiple offers.

You can call me at any time and discuss at 559-274-7025

Thanks

Just make sure that the RE Professional is also a Manufactured Home Expert. Don't just list your home with the cutest smile you get. There's a lot of nuances and idiosyncrasies about MH's that many if most RE agents & brokers are not aware of. Especailly if the home is in a rent/lease park/community.

You really should find a Manufactured Home Dealer who is licensed to deal in Manufactured Housing. I don't service the Clovis area but I would be more than happy to refer you to a qualified and experienced MH expert in your area. Please feel free to call me anytime at 760 815-6977 or email me at onthelevel@cox.net

Have a plan.
1) Definitely get pre-qualified.
2) Decide where you want to be living in 5 years, 10 years, etc. Will it be the same house?
3) Have a workable realistic budget, just because you can qualify for "X" dollars, does not always mean you should buy a house at that amount. Look at your lifestyle your hobbies and extra expenses. Do not add stress your life by maxing out your income to expenses ratio.
4) Find a Realtor that will help you find the right house at the right price, and can provide you with updated information as it is released.

and 5) enjoy the hunt.

If you have any question about how I can get help you find your future home, contact me.

Ron Thomas answered:
One reason that they are side-stepping the question, is that most houses sold on the "courthouse steps revert to the Bank that owns them: The bank will bid an amount equal to the outstanding loan, to protect their interests. Buyer's never have a chance.

And, NO, you cannot pre-bid.

Investors have been trying to jump the gun for a couple years now; and the deck is stacked against them.
Some investors buy a dozen homes, hopping that the good ones will cancel out the bad ones: But if you are a novice, you should concentrate on quality, not quantity.
Watching the flippers on HGTV; there are a million sad stories out there.

Good luck and may God bless

It is an older neighborhood and has been depressed for some time.
The house is listed at $71,000, is an REO, and has an offer on it presently.
The comments say that they are not accepting any more offers.
It also says that the house needs some repairs.

There are currently, 5 other houses in 93612 Listed under $100,000.

Good luck and may God bless

YOU will need to have your agent check with the other agent to see if they are aware the furnace is broken, then submit a request for repairs with a quote of the cost for the repairs. They may fix the furnace or credit you the cost of repairs. This most likely will be the type of repair they will fix becasue it will cost them a couple of deals, time and money to let it go.
