Unfortunately not really. Most lenders are going to need a certificate of completion. However by replacing the wood they have fixed the problem, if that is what they did.

If the termites were not mentioned in the purchase agreement nor on the appraisal, the lender is probably not going to require it.

I would say that if they have replaced the wood, and the lender is good with it, you are probably good to go.

If the termite damage was mentioned in the purchase contract or on the appraisal the lender will need a certificate of completion.

Finally remember that if a termite company issues a certificate of completion, they must fix any termite infestations or damage from termites for one year. By not getting the termite company to do the work the seller now needs to guarantee it or should at least be aware that by law they are doing that. I would suggest getting a 2nd termite inspection.

The best way to find an open house in your area is to # the city you live in, followed by adding #openhouse on social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter.

Yes, you will have a mortgage on the mobile home as well as rent space typically. Rent space varies but in Glendora ranges from 700-1,000 a month maybe. Have you looked into buying a condo or smaller single family home instead? With interest rates so low, you may be able to have a payment on a regular home at close to the same price. ... more

The short answer is there is no requirement to do this. Most likely it will be dictated by finances. If you can afford to close on your new home before closing on your current that will make the move transition much easier. ... more

If you know the address google it. If there was a serious crime like a murder it will be there. As for traffic go and spend some time on the block and check out your future neighborhood. ... more

Your best bet is to work with a REALTOR that's signed up for Foreclosure Radar. I've attached the link so you can look into it.

As Gina and Matt have already said, you won't find a home in that price range. A mobile home is entirely possible but you'll need to make sure you're factoring in the space rent. Let me know if you'd like me to email you some mobile homes to consider. There are some condo complexes in the surrounding cities in your price range. I could you some of those as well. ... more

Matthew Bartlett answered:
Hi Christ,

The answer to your question is a Home Inspection. This will be your most comprehensive inspection that you pay for. Your agent or their Transaction Coordinator can help you set up an appointment with your Inspector of choice once you open escrow. Keep in mind that not all Licensed Property Inspectors are Licensed Roofers. Therefore, if you have concerns about the roof, then you should also plan to have a Licensed Roofer inspect the home. This will be an additional cost to you as the buyer, however you will be in a much better position when it comes to knowing the condition of the home. Do not fear the fact that the home is being sold "As Is". Most homeowners say they are selling "As Is" but that could change once you have completed a property inspection and the Sellers motivation to sell becomes more critical. If may be of further assistance I specialize in Single Family Residential sales in the City of Glendora. Best of luck!

I believe if you can, cash is a good way to buy vacation home so you won't have a monthly bill unless you need a tax shelter for income. This way in case something negative happens unexpectedly, you won't have to loose the home & you'll have a source to pull some cash for use.

I hoep this is helpful. Best wishes.

Always There for You,

The rule is "first come, first served".
Some lenders have special addenda that stipulate that offers can be received and allowed to supersede the earlier offers, although these are primarily for short sales.

A sharp Realtor will be looking for back up offers, so I would try to get your offer accepted on that basis. What does your Realtor say?

Hi Sal:

It means it has an accepted offer on the property. Something could happen that the buyer who has the accepted offer may not be able to go through with the purchase, so if you are interested in the property, let me know I can find out more. We can see the property and put a back up offer on the property so that if the other buyer can not complete his purchase you would be in first position to purchase the home next. Let me know if you would like to do that.
