I placed 2 tenants into one year lease for homes in Sierra Lakes of North Fontana in September. Both were 5 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. One was corner lot not near golf course landlord accepted $2200. The other backs up and has views of golf course and mountains landlord accepted $2,400. I have seen your model asking a bit more. I still have several tenants who want to rent in Sierra Lakes.

I am at your service.

I think that you can find a home to meet your needs. Our inventory is still up. Many homes are what I call "muddled sales". That means in non real estate terms icky stuff. It is somewhere in the process of going from a defaulted property to one the bank owns. Best to aim your search at homes that are just normal sales or ones that are finally bank owned. The others have offers just sitting, lost, and few going thru.

These are the steps you should do in your home search.

1. Get finance for your home all set up. Best to go with a major lender in case you do decide to go with bank owned. This will tell you exactly how much you need for a down payment, what you need for closing costs, what your taxes, insurance and any other fees may be. Having extra money can help you buy down your interest rate by buying points. A good lender can explain this to you.

The most important part of this first step is to know how much house you really can afford.

2. Begin an internet search.
Yes you can look up things your self but for free without anything but your first name and an email most agents will set you up to receive daily notifications of homes in your area of interest, homes the size your want, with the features you want and in the price range you want.

With this search you can view new listing every day, see what is being sold, see lots of photos and additional iformation on homes.

3. Select a realtor. I suggest a buyer's agent only. They will sell you homes that they did not list. Because they do not list homes. There job is to understand your needs and match them with great homes.

4. Fontana is a great area for many things. Super commute, lots of jobs nearby, super schools, parks, great shopping and places to eat. _____However just like in all towns there commercial areas that sometimes have residential inside them or along side them. Best for resale to avoid these areas. You may want to check crime statistics in certain areas you are interested in. Talk to people and see if they like living in their neighborhoods. Also if you see a house on the internet do a drive by the house. Look to see if it is in a neighborhood where homes are cared for. Notice the homes around the home you are interested in. Is there lots of deferred maintence--unpainted homes, broken cars or trucks around, poortly maintained yards, broken or boarded up windows.________ Your home is an important investment. Lifestyle is important. You want the best for yourself and family. There are lots of great homes in Fontana that meet these requirements.

4. Make a wish list. Really figure out what is important to you. Don't waste time looking at 2 bedroom homes when you have four children. Don't waste time looking at condos when you want a big yard to play with your family and entertain. If big holiday and family meals are important get that dining room. If you like to tinker get that garage. If you like big and open tell your agent. If you like small and cozy tell your agent.

Then when you start to look give your agent feedback on every home. Say I like _____ but I don't like this -----and tell the agent what is important to you. As you tour homes your wish lish will change. That is ok. Communication is the key.

5. When you find the home that is right go for it. You have time during the inspection to get out of the deal but don't lose a great home by delaying. I personally did that once. Ripped the deposit check right from the agents hand and boy did I regret it.

6. Have fun. This is important stuff but think of it instead as snooping in homes and seeing what you really want.
