My question is a little different. My buyer wants to purchase a house that has no stove but it has one small induction burner. This house is a minimalist and an energy efficient property and are wondering if that burner will pass FHA. does any have any thoughts, suggestions?... more
I would not bank on appreciation or "making money". If you are looking for acreage, it is relatively close to Lancaster, and on the west side. It is not a large city by any means and when you go to resell your buyer pool will not be as large. Here is a suggestion... Check out Quartz Hill. It is nestled within west Lancaster, and you can find 1-2 acre lots suitable for your needs. Your resale will be much better, because Quartz Hill is a highly desired area.... more

The only way to refi (at this point) would be a Portfolio Loan Product. The rates are less than 10% but higher than 8% so unless you really needed to pull cash out to pay off debt or you had a personal issue you needed to resolve, I would recommend waiting another year. There is only other loan out there that would allow financing after a Foreclosure less than 3 years would be the FHA Back to Work Program, but that program is for purchases only. The last option would be a FHA 203b under "Extenuating Circumstances". But you would have to show you had a death in the immediate family or serious illness that directly led up to the foreclosure. Hopes this helps.... more

Required by who? If the home is being financed by a lender they will require that the home is in good enough condition for you to live in the home. If you are buying a home without financing nobody will require anything to be working. If you are purchasing a home a property inspection is a good idea but not always a requirement.... more
West Lancaster is really nice, just to remember west is always nicer and more expensive. You may also want to check out west palmdale. I have lived in the area for over 20 years.
Sorry to hear that the deal did not work out. You say that the home needed major repairs. Were these major repairs mentioned by the Appraiser in their report? If so, then your Lender would consider them safety & soundness issues and require that they be repaired prior to close of escrow. Now the seller is not obligated to agree to pay for or make said repaires. And maybe there is another buyer who would agree to pay for the repairs to be made. Thou, does the seller want to take that chance? Your Agent could have pointed out to the seller that it would be in their best interest to pay for and complete the repairs and close the escrow with you. The seller will have the same issues with any future prospective buyer and Appraiser, as these repairs must be disclosed along with the appraisal report to any future buyer and their Lender. Furthermore, removing the FHA option will not solve the issue either as Conventional financing will require the repairs be made prior to close of escrow as well. This will end up costing the seller more money and time starting over. I do not know of many sellers who would roll the dice in the hope that MAYBE they can find a buyer to pay for the repairs.
With regards to the $250.00 fee. As long as you cancelled the agreement within your due dilligence period as per the contract, then you're entitled to a full refund of your deposit. Speak with your Broker and have them make this clear to the Title Company. The Title company needs to bite the bullet and take the loss. They are not the only ones to lose money in this transaction. Good luck and do not give up on the process as you will find a home!
If you are serious about buying a REO property your best bet is to contact a Realtor from your community.
