Hi Charo,

Since you are also a realtor in Fremont, I am sure you know the answer to this question.

Hi, Looks like this Trulia Q&A has died. I would suggest you join the Nextdoor group in Warmsprings and ask that question. You may have to sign up, but this is a robust site. ... more

I have a friend in a similar situation. Shortly after purchasing a new primary residence, her husband lost his job. He had been making twice as much money as she. Although he found a new job eventually, it was at a much lower pay, closer to what she makes. They made the mortgage payments for a year but never moved in to the property. Their finances were tight and had to decide to sell or rent it out. They rented it out. It's another year later and now they are VERY worried that they can be charged with mortgage fraud. How realistic are their fears? It seems to me they have a mitigating factor here (change in income) that makes it unlikely. ... more

We have been living in the Parklane community over a year now. I am posting this in 2016 and lots of information below seems to be outdated. I cannot comment on the situation before my stay. The community is clean and the townhomes built have good quality material and layouts. The quality of the doors, windows, appliances and the workman ship is above par. This comes from a home owner for quite sometime and hands on. The community is kid friendly.

Like any other community there is a mix of low income and regular owners. You would not find any difference between the families they are most from professional backgrounds and well integrated. As to the low income housing across the community; there has been no issues what so ever. Few family feuds is bound to be there anywhere. The cemetery is obscure and no direct line of sight or access except for the rear units that too are lined with trees. The inmates of the cemetery so far have not caused any trouble either. Great place with good walking distance from the schools and all other amenities like post office, farmers market etc.

some more details : If I decide to go ahead with the home, and later discover it is not permitted, can the seller be asked to pay for the correction?

Sandra Yvette Sullivan answered:
A Realtor and a Broker Associate are definitely different in that broker associates have completed more education classes to earn their broker's license but have chosen to work under the management of a broker. Similarly, if you had to choose between a history teacher at a high-school and a history professor at a college, who would you choose for tutelage? The latter would be the better tutor, hands down. ... more

If you are referring to crime in the area then I would suggest that you contact the local police department. They will have the most accurate info.

Alexander Greer answered:
It really depends. Are you looking for a grant to cover the short fall between your downpayment and the county loan limit because homes are so expensive in the Bay Area. Or are you looking for a grant to cover your downpayment? Both are available and I would only recommend the first. The second most often times when said and done did not benefit the buyer.

Avalon Heights in Fremont is a wonderful of Fremont. The homes here are very much on the higher end side of homes and the area is one of the most sought out in Fremont. Since January 1st there have only been 3 homes listed in the area (1 pending and 1 active sale right now). People who move to this area STAY in this area.

The schools on all 3 levels (elementary, middle and high school) are all 10s and some of the best in the area.

I would be happy to answer any questions about the area or a specific home, should any come up.

Please feel free to contact me anytime!

Hi Sam..I am not sure about your name Sam and the question you asked are both real or not, but here is my answer: You have to check the real weather yourself by going outside to see to feel, to discover, to judge, and to analyse all the elements and environment where you want to know everything.about.
For good, effective schools in Fremont that you want to send your kids to, please follow these simple steps below:
1. Take bus #217 to Mission San Jose HS 4 times ( back and forth ) Please don't drive - Why? You will have plenty of time and opportunity to sit quietly on the bus and observe the neighborhood, the surrounding, the traffic and the streets that connect to school, in this case Mission SJ HS.
2. Get off the bus 2 times and go to visit the school two times. Open yourself up and talk to parents, students, teachers, visitors who are on the school when you are in Even you can ask questions like you are interviewing for jobs. Be polite and courtesy
3. Make appointment with school for the guided tour. If your request was refused, started to ask tough questions about and on everything you want to know: academic records, student performance, teacher turn over rates, discipline problems, college readiness, sport and extra curriculum etc,, Under new federal laws ( Every Student Succeed - Replaced by failed No Child Left Behind policy 4 moths ago ) every parent and school taxes payers now have more right and power to know everything about your school which you are about to send your kid to
4. 20% of your lucks- depending on other crucial elements 70% of your efforts and experience plus your sills, talents and knowledge living in this country and 10% exteral factors beyond your control.
Is everything making above sense to you. If so please do the last # 5 step below
5. Google these all key words " 28th amendment to fix education " and sign to support for my unique, future winning online petition. Thanks in advance.-- Lee Nguyen of Texas 07/15/2016
