Honestly? Because the developers of Trulia are not Realtors - they are IT professionals and don't know what's impotant to home buyers!

Hello Brook,

Not sure because you don't have a listing attached to the question. Hopefully they have a sidewalk which could be used for both cycling and hiking.

If you take all of the homes that have sold or are in escrow from January 1, 2013 to present, the average amount of time on the market has been 83 Days. However, the numbers are all over the place in that there are homes have been on the market for one day or as much as a year. There are too many factors in regards to home sales that can affect the Days on the Market: Price, location, condition, size, lot size, and marketing.

There is really no way to tell you how fast homes are selling today. I can tell you that if the home is priced within 2% of the market value, it will sell faster than a home that is priced 10% over market value. If the home is price below market value it will normally have several offers within the first week.

If you contact me directly at 805-471-0828 or , I can send you a list all of the homes that have sold or are in escrow in a format that you will be able to understand and you can make your own evaluation on DOM (Days on Market). Below is just a small sample of the variation you will need to consider.

Homes that went into Escrow or have sold after January 1, 2013. Grover Beach (Sample List)

CMA Report Grover Beach – This is one data source I am referring to. Link will expire in 30 Days. 3/21/13

Days on Market – Grover Bach

Currently there are no trailers in parks in Grover Beach for $25,000 or under. However, if you have good credit with $25,000 down, you can purchase a on single family home with a low interest rate. Your loan payment would be lower than if you paid the park fee of $825.00 and you would live in a real home on land you own.

For example, you can by a $175,000 single family home with $25,000 down you would have a loan payment as low as $717,000 at 4%, it would cost less to buy a normal home that will gain equity faster than a trailer. Also, you can also get the seller to pay all of the closing costs.

You can view all the available Grover Beach and all of the Central Coast Single Family homes, and Condos, on my web site at or Call me and I will be happy to find you a home that you can afford.

It is very likely there will be asbestos in a home built in 1964. If you are planning on remodeling the home yourself, I would suggest buying a suit designed to protect you from asbestos, which is what a contractor will do. If you are exposing areas to the exterior, you will need to tarp those areas to contain asbestos. I would suggest before opening areas in the home into the environment you have a contractor look at the project and give you an estimate for any work that can be potentially hazardous. I can provide you with a contractor if you email me at 805-471-0828 – David Norwood – Central Coast Real Estate. ... more

Dear Heart,
The rule of thumb is to buy in the very best area you can afford. Good areas always appreciate faster, and hold their value as well.

You can also use the search filters on the left side of the page to refine your results further by bath, property type, square-footage, and more.

I hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have any further questions or any feedback for us.

Best Wishes,

Johnny Costa answered:

There are a number of renters just like you that are seeing that as the market continues to shift, they are able to purchase a home at nearly the same monthly costs as renting.

You may notice that many areas in California are now seeing multiple offers on properties in the lower prices ranges. This is because it has become affordable again to own a home.

As others have written, it is time for you speak with a lender and get pre-approved for a home mortgage.
You can find a Realtor that can show you what homes might be in your price range, then decide for yourself if it is worth taking the next step away from paying someone elses mortgage, and start paying your own.

To answer the last part of your question, a home doesn't necessarily need to be a foreclosure to be a good deal. There are many motivated sellers in the market that will negotiate with you, and are a LOT better to deal with than the banks.

If you have time and patience, you might want to consider looking at short sale homes.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

As everyone has said, it is definitely important for you to contact a real estate lawyer. If you need a referral to a lawyer that handle real estate law in San Luis county, please don't hesitate to contact me. Before you meet or speak with the lawyer, I would suggest writing down all fact that you know and when you learned of these facts. Have you talked with anyone? Who and when? These will give you lawyer some background and save you time and money and some frustration, hopefully, in the end.

My phone number is 805.596.4479 or email me at if you are still in need of local assistance.
