I don't care where you are, that is something you should ALWAYS get inspected. Do not gamble with the plumbing! Repairs can get expensive quickly if you have any sort of drain related problems. Those are not something you want to find out about after you've purchased a home! ... more

Any Title company will do a double closing David. There are many people that are selling one home and then buying another one after another.
Good luck with your transaction.

I'd call the cops. A tenant may have rights, but destruction of personal property isn't one of them. They may speed things up for you.

It all depends on the circumstances of your Chap 13 and lenders guidelines. Guidelines are changing and are different from lender to lender. So, I would check with your lender and see if you can qualify or not. ... more

Just saw a house rental for $12000 at 1235 McBride lane in Hayward. The area might not be the best location but the price is decent.

Russ Ravary answered:
What you should do is have your real estate agent pull all the comps of recently sold homes. A comp is a home that is similar in size, style and condition. It should be within 1 mile of the home you are buying and have sold in the last six months. Then you should base your offer on those sold prices. Also ask your Realtor what they think you should offer if you really want the house. It is never smart to over pay unless you absolutely have to have the house. ... more

The Medford Team answered:
We cannot provide specific information like that in this forum, but any competent realtor can provide you with a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) for homes in that area. There is typically no cost or obligation. As an aside, I recently sold 25595 Spur Drive and am very familiar with the neighborhood. ... more

Hi Nads, you should get a buyers agent as soon as possible. You should pick one out that you feel comforable with. Most agents can help you find a home, and help you negotiate well so you get what you need and want, but you also want to pick one who you feel free to talk to and will answer any question you may have. Also you want to make sure they have time for you and will return your calls in a timely manner. Last but not least ( in case you didn't know ) a buyers Realtor is paid by the builder or seller and so you get a professional on your side at no cost to you! Its a win win!....congratulations and good luck, Dawn ... more

In todays mortgage business the underwriters all pretty much have to follow the same set of strict rules so there will be small differences if any at all. Some of the lender fees might be the only differences. I am sure the mortgage guys will jump in to clarify more. ... more

Bruce answered:

I would be less concerned about the crime in the area on this street than the noise of the BART flying over (elevated track there) your house every few minutes. Granted, you're not far from 164th and E. 14th, an area that I would never consider buying into, but for the most part, Lewelling is fine. I've lived across for San Lorenzo High School for almost 18 years and have never been bothered. Keep in mind that AMR uses Lewelling as their personal freeway when responding to emergencies. So my vote is that noise, rather than crime risk, is the bigger reason why I would keep looking elsewhere.

Bill Eckler answered:

It's not advisable to stop paying your fees and we would suggest that you review any type of action with an attorney.

Try getting a group of owners together that share your concerns and attend a meeting. Request to be put on the agenda and present it as a group action. "The squeeky wheel gets the oil."

We agree rules are made to be enforced.......

Good luck
