Sounds to me like your agent violated his/her "duty of agency". I'd file a complaint with the BRE.

Bottom line is that when an agent agrees to represent you, that agent has the duty to place your interests above his own. ... more

Yes. You need to have reestablished positive payment history after the foreclosure. If you do qualify for the back to work program then you just need to wait 12 months. If not then you need to wait 3 years. I would be able to refer you to a lender that participates in the back to work program if you want some help.. ... more

THERE are instances where the seller would be willing to carry your note .The other obstacle to credit issues with regard to the mobile home is that you must also obtain park approval and your credit may have some impact on the park's decision.
I have access to some sellers who may carry paper.If you want more info feel free to contact me

Kawain Payne answered:
If you no longer are employed by the company you can not take out a "LOAN" on your 401K

Loans made agaisnt 401K plans are repaid over time through payroll deductions. In fact, if you take out a loan on your 401 while employed , then quit the job the loan becomes due and paybale by you in full.

You may be able to do a "WITHDRAWL" from your 401 to buy a home, but before you do talk to your tax professional to make sure you do not run into trouble.

Best of Luck!

Ron Thomas answered:
You've got it backwards:
Real Estate is the land!
The house is "attached" to the land, so it becomes part of the deal.
Anything that is "attached" to the house too.

The Assessor will separtate the house and land to determine the value/worth of each.
The only time this makes a diff to a Buyer, is when there is either no house on the land, or, it is a tear-down/rebuild.

Hi Sunshine,

Do you have the owners address or contact information?

When I was in a similar situation, I searched Public Records with the property address and it returned the owners address and legal name . I then wrote the owner a letter regarding the problem with the tenants. Make sure to leave a contact phone number or email address for them to get back to you.

Hello 2563,

Your best source for finding the information regarding zoning and coverage area will be to stop by the local planning department and supplying the properties APN number. Once you have determined which company services the area you can contact them directly regarding the properties proximity to the closest transformer. Good luck!

Sherry Ferfes answered:
Please remember that property must be in escrow by April and close June to be eligible for first time buyer credit. Depending where you want to buy, there are other loan programs, such as the USDA. Littlerock, Lake Los Angeles, Rosamond, Mojave, California City, Acton, etc. which are in rural areas and might be covered by this loan program. Please contact your lender and find out about the program. It doesn't cover closing costs, but you can ask for closing costs to be paid.

Hi Land65,

Trulia currently shows 92 active lot/land listings in Lancaster and you can review those listings at…

It looks like we only have data for one recently sold land property which you can review at|LAN…

At this time listings with a pending status aren't distinguished on our site. Active listings are included in our search results until they show a status of pending, withdrawn or sold at which time the listing information is removed from our display.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if we can help you find anything else.

Best Wishes,
