A tent is livable; it's just the degree of comfort that you want and can afford that you're asking about. Your Realtor can assist you in finding the house that meets what you can afford to pay combined with your needs/wants in a house. So the real question is, what do you consider "livable"? Are you willing to settle for a bare minimum, what are your expectations? The next step is to try and match your expectations with what's available in the market. One person's barely livable is another's luxurious dream. Generally speaking in a strong buyers market your dollar reaches farther. Best of luck, Annie.

Sometimes advertisements can be deceiving. Typically, if a price for a home in California seems too good to be true, it most likely is too good to be true. I would definitely suggest contacting a real estate professional in your area if and when you decide to look seriously into buying a home. The home buying process can be confusing and it is a Realtors job to educate you on things you should know when you decide to invest in a home.

Good Luck !

Your best bet is to first visit the unit you are considering and feel it out, if you want to move foward then seek professional assistance of a certified inspector. Mold, defective drywall, missing appliances, hazards, and other things can prevent a home from being able to be occupied. Again, seek out the experts in your area.

If you are looking at the foreclosures on here forget it. realtytrack lists homes for sale that are not for sale. They may never be for sale. In fact if they ever do go on sale the prices will look nothing like realtytrack's prices now.
