Hello Hwimbrough62516, they are hard to find in this market. Why are you inquiring for an owner carry? You may already qualify for financing? Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

The purchase in Escondido start from 175k for 2bd 1.5ba condo, from 269k for 3bd 2ba condo and up. You will need more out of pocket to purchase a mobile home and you also have space rent.

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. 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 FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. 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 424k.

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

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

It can take 48-72 hours min for it to go active. If your auto feed is not working, most MLS have you now clicking a box to include your listing into third party sites like this.

I purchased 9759 Palm Lane in 1987 for $200,000, and later purchased adjoining lots from the City of San Diego. I sold one of those lots to my neighbor in 2003 for $20,000. What you show…

GOOD LUCK. I have lived in North SD County since retiring from the military, and I am STILL looking for what you describe. It was not great then, but out of the question now; rent has SKYROCKETED here. The only areas you may find with what you seek will be FALLBROOK or HEMET, quite a ways if you're looking for Greater San Diego Your two main issues will be: FEW places will take a pet or will only take it if you pay a large deposit AND a monthly pet rent fee; Your PRIMARY ISSUE: NO WHERE HERE will you find a 2 BED FOR 850-1100, NOT EVEN IN THE HIGH CRIME AREAS. Hated to be a bearer of bad news. As I said before, POSSIBLY Hemet, or Fallbrook, but be prepared: greedy landlords have begun to ask for a deposit that WELL EXCEEDS the monthly rent. So if you find somewhere that's asking, say, 1100, make sure you ask before even bothering to look at the place what the deposit is..will likely be in the area of 17-1800, BUT will hardly be justified by the looks of it. Again, sorry ... more

This place has NEVER NOT been up for rent. They change the rent and deposit the moment you inquire. Info on posting NEVER matches what they will say
