Yes, you can use a VA Loan on a property that you intend to reside in, but usually foreclosed properties do not pass the VA appraisal inspections due to the damage or defects caused by disgruntled previous owners. ... more

Agents will usually dodge questions about HOA information and dues amounts because it is an added expense on a prospective property that only increases every year and is a negative selling point.

The best way of finding out HOA amounts is to call the property manager that administers the complex and inquire on not only the dues but the overall financial health of the housing association.

A large number of HOA's throughout the country are still recovering from the housing crash where condo and townhouse owners walked away from their units and ceased paying the HOA dues, forcing the associations to spread the missing dues amounts over the remaining owners.

Some condo complexes in Southern California are known to have MONTHLY dues of $1000.00 or more to spread the costs over the owners not in foreclosure!

In addition to the HOA concerns, make sure that the townhouse is on FEE land (where YOU own the land), or you may find yourself looking at paying land-lease fees on top of th HOA dues!

Good Luck, and take care that you know all the costs before you commit to the property.

Sunfish Drive doesn't have homes, it is part of a condo development called Newport Cove. It's a popular little area, and there are five condos on Sunfish under contract currently, but none actively for sale. Unfortunately "big box" advertising sites like Trulia and Zillow never keep their database updated, so it looks like a lot more properties are for sale than there really are.

If you want to look at only condos or homes that are actively for sale on a site that is updated daily, go to:


Hope this helps!

I just checked the MLS for you - as of this time there are no Condo properties in all of Henderson that are currently for sale and fit your criteria ( There are no 3 bedroom under 50,000 and there are no 2+ bedroom units with a garage). To get what you want runs more. The 3 cheapest prices are 95,000, 109,900 and 189,995. There are 4 or 5 other properties that run from189,995 to 417,500. That is not to say that you cant find what you want in another part of town so, as was previoulsy suggested you should contact an agent and make arrangements with them to help you find a property that works for you. ... more

If you are willing buying a property in some area you have to consider the price to the rent ratio. With decereasing inventory that we are facing right now, the soon is better, beceuse we already start seeing increase the offers price to the listing price. Of course it is a lot of factors that you have to look-location, close to schools, major streets, shopping and etc., but the most important is to be sure that you can not lose in the future, and does not matter what is going to happen in real estate market you are in safe mode. For more information, how to buy property, contact with me, and I will be happy to explain to you everything that you need to know, before start your home search.
For me and my clients buying the property is investment it is not simple home search, and it is not too many people who can understand the concept, and less who could explain.

Heather Peck answered:
If you're seeing a property with an unbelievable asking price, chances are that was the balance on a lien filed against the property for something like property taxes, HOA assessments or something else.

The only way to find out whether a property is actually listed and what not only the price is but what the comps are is to speak to a real estate agent.

Please don't hesitate to call or email. We don't bite and can give you some really valuable information.
