I don't posses the professional opinion you're looking for, but I can offer my opinion as a potential buyer. Some buyers would love to have a giant tree in the yard, but some wouldn't. I suggest having the option of removing the tree available to buyers. Being able to chose for themselves is not only very attractive, but could save you money if they decide to keep the tree. Whatever you decide to do, I wish you the best with selling your house, if you haven't already! http://www.talltimberstreeservice.com/services/tree-shrub-pruning ... more

I have lived in East Highland since 1995. Our City is a very well run city. Our Schools are part of the Redlands School System. Our tax rate is low 1.25 with some areas having Association fees( East Highlands Ranch) and/or CDF
We are still growing but we have a small town feel. This all makes East Highland a jewel at the foot of the mountains. West of Boulder is the older part of Highland still very affordable and has new homes as well as older homes.

I would start with you bank or your credit union. They should be able to let you know where you stand. If you see a home that you like, you can contact a realtor in your area and they should be able to put you in touch with a lender that they are familiar with. The first step is finding out what amount you qualify for. Best of luck to you and congrats on making the decision of becoming a homeowner! ... more

Hello Steve - That is a touch price point to find a home in the cities that you indicated. You may need to widen that search area. If you would like me to send you some listings that might work for you, please feel free to contact me. But, I agree with Rachel that you definitely want to do your due diligence on the home you select to bid on, if you decide to go that route. Best of luck to you! ... more

Hi Jane, quick update on SB30:

SB30 has stalled in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and will not make it to the Governors desk this year.

The California Association of REALTORS® reported that since SB 30 is a "two year" bill there is a chance it could make it out of the Appropriations Committee when the Legislature reconvenes in 2014 and be signed into law before the deadline to file 2013 state income taxes.

Marge Bennett answered:
Good Morning Gina,
Good of you to question this. in Florida, escrow $$ MUST go into an escrow account, either the broker's or closing agent (atty or title co). Putting escrow in the broker's operating accoutn is grounds for serious discipline.
Maybe the agent mis-spoke. He may not know how the company works.
I would agree with you, but am not familiar with how it works in California.

Chandra Watkins answered:
This is a tough market for buyers right now and most sellers are able to get cash offers or conventional offers on their homes. It may be hard to find a seller that is willing to work with a First Time Buyer Program. I would speak with your lender to make sure that everything is in place with that program financing. Then I would have your lender do a quick letter to explain whether or not the program will cause a delay in the closing (and if so, how long). Being up front might be your best option and educating the sellers agent as to the type of assistance program you are using just might make the sellers feel more confident in your offer.

If you found this helpful, I would appreciate you clicking on either the thumbs up or best answer. :)

Make it a great day!

Hello Blake.

Sorry to hear of your relatives passing! I know that can be a hard thing to deal with.

This is a huge thing to receive such an inheritance. I agree with Mr. Alan May, I suggest you seek a financial advisor for this advice, not a Realtor. Someone who can work with you personally and figure out the best thing to do with YOUR money. If you do decide to go into real estate there are a lot of us out here. Finding the right team for your needs is important. Don't find someone who is going to be after your money please. Try to find someone who will find you what you want and fit to your circumstances.

Best of luck!

Priscilla Walsh
