Pending (at least in my area) means that someone has already written an accepted offer, and they have already cleared any major contingencies (ie: inspection, mortgage)... so unless something happens, you should consider it already sold.

as far as "how long does it last"... that depends on how far away the closing is scheduled.

It's your choice. I assume that when you go direct to a listing agent, that you are doing all of the work yourself. That is a difficult way of looking for a home. Why not have an agent represent you and advise you throughout the process? There is an advantage to having a buyers agent. Some people feel that they can get a better deal by working with the listing agent only. There is no guarantee that you will or you wont. It's just a theory.


All the best,

Marie,
Contact a local real estate professional that services the Downey area. You may want to interview a few and find a good fit your your situation. Before you buy, ask the agent to show you plenty of homes so you get the know that market before making an offer. Also be sure to get pre approved for a loan if your financing to buy.

All the best,

Hi Erma,

Taxes will dependent on the sales price of the home. The homeowners insurance is based on the value of the property and the type of coverage you request. Make sure to shop around to receive the best coverage for your home. Mortgage insurance depends on the type of loan you've chosen ex: FHA loans for the most part always carry private mortgage insurance (PMI). This is something that a lender would be able to go into detail. Again shop around for the best lender/bank options.


Thanks,
