Hi,
Perhaps your local well drilling company can give you some idea of ratios per person, etc.
Also, are you storing water in a tank that could supplement the flow?

Kind regards,

Arpad

Good thing my re-fi guy mentioned something about the house that red-flagged me to ask which site he was using to do a quick assess of house condition. I had to re-direct him to Zillow…

Sally Grenier answered:
How did you list the property to begin with? Is it listed with a Realtor, or are you a FSBO? If it's listed with an agent, he/she needs to upload the new photos. If you're a FSBO, where did you list the home? On Zillow? You can edit your listing there, and they should eventually show up here. ... more

Hi Howard,
if you haven't sold yet you will know the past few years have seen substantial gains in home values, this year however those gains are forecasted to slow down quite a bit. With only a modest rise in value and rates continuing to be so low now would be an excellent time to sell. I am a marketing specialist and have one more availability to take on a home listing coming up in the very near future. Feel free to check out my profile, reviews and google my listings to see just how much exposure I offer.

If you are working with an agent they can set up a search for you to email you listings as they come on market. If you prefer to scour the Internet on your own, check the Nevada County Association of Realtors website, NCAOR.com, click public access on left side menu, search can be filtered to only REO(bank owned), or short sales. Also Home Path & Home Steps for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac owned homes.
I will say no great bargins on most bank owned these days, and very few short sales.
When you are ready to work with an agent you have plenty to choose from in our area.,
happy searching!

Hi Elizabeth,
I don't see which property you are asking about, but on Trulia for rentals, go to the bottom of the properties page and look for "LISTING WEBSITE" link, click through and look for the property managers contact information, sometimes on that site it will tell you if they take Section 8, but you usually will have to call or email the manager directly. ... more

I am sorry to hear about you husband's health issue and my prayers go out to you. You have nothing to worry about. A Second home can used as a Primary Residence at will.

Take care!

Jim Myers answered:
Unfortunately, offering more doesn't guarantee a quicker response time. The lender will still do an appraisal, some Broker Price Opinions, check to make sure all of the sellers information is complete and in compliance, etc. The waiting period varies greatly between institutions but the reason is seldom the asking or offering price. The short sale package, which includes your offer, is being evaluated and voted on as a package with whoever the investors are on that particular property. You will need much patience if you plan on sticking with this. Hopefully you love the house and want to see it through. Good Luck; ... more

Hi DcPink,
For your basic Single Family homes figure about $1/sq ft. , so a 1500 3bd 2ba would be $1500/month

+ or - for land, location, condition, amenities.

Teri offers some great information. Nevada County is a difficult area to value properties, because much of the county is rural and no two houses are the same. Due to slow maket conditions and diversity of homes in the area, it is often necessary to compare to similar neighborhoods several miles away, possibly even in a different city or county.

Acreage may be of little concern. Ten acres is generally not worth twice as much as five acres. What matters is the zoning and use allowed by the County. Chances are your property zoning allows for a house, possibly a second unit, and some outbuildings. This is comparable to any other zoning that has essentially the same allowable use, regardless of acreage.

There are many items that affect value, some obvious, some subtle. If the appraiser is from out of the area, he may not be familiar with the unique characteristics of Nevada County. On the other hand, the real estate professionals that have indicated your home is worth considerably more, may have "ballparked" the value without taking the time to do adequate research.

Cheryl Berg answered:
As with any home, the "list price" is a starting price. As with any Seller, you can offer the bank less money. The bank will have an Appraisal or Broker Price Opinion on file. They will have the opinion of value updated every 30 days. Although the bank may be slow to adjust the list price, they may be quick to accept an offer that is close to the value they have on file. It is not unusual for REO homes to be stripped of many items, and this should have been factored in to the value. All accepted offers provide for an inspection period, and you should use this period to get formal estimates for repair costs. If the estimates exceed your budget, you can generally withdraw your offer during the inspection period without penalty. I work extensively with REO properties. They are a challenge, but there are some very reasonable deals if you are up for the challenge and have expert representation. ... more
