Yes its been really dry compared to the last couple of years. We had snow in November which was pretty early and then barely in December. As I recall nothing in January and then last couple of days rain in Idyllwild and a dusting of snow in Pine Cove. And rainy season has only about 6 weeks to go ... more

Scott -

I live and work in Idyllwild. This is a nice little cabin for $114,000. Remember it is 740sqft which is the same size as a single wide mobile home. Can't believe that it sold in the mid $200,000 in 2005. If you would like me to drive by and take any additional pictures or if you would like to view the property just let me know. ... more

LOL! I'm sure by now that Soulpretty has solved or is in the process of dealing with her issues inasmuch as this question is 2.5 years old. Don't know about you folks but I'm going to start looking at dates from now on. No use beating a dead horse unless you really need points that bad. ... more

Commuting of this type is NOT ideal for most. It will likely get very old very fast, especially when dealing with poor weather conditions in the winter months. I personally know a person who lives in Big Bear who decided he loved the mountain so much that he obtained a pilots license and bought a small used plane which he uses to make his commute to El Monte more bearable. He is much closer to retirement than your husband is. I would seriously reconsider the long and sometimes difficult commute during the winter months. ... more

It is clear your prime intent is to sell the home.
As others have shared with you, that is going to be very problematic at this time.
You have four other options. Since all of the options have consequences, only an attorney is qualified to discuss them with you.
In your discussion with your attorney get a good understanding of:
1. Who owns the house.....really.
2. Who is responsible for the mortgage?
3. Are any persuasive mechanisms available
4. Can you reach an agreement for a fixed buyout right now, without a purchase offer?
5. In two years what will the situation be
6. What is your long term goal
7. What option(s) is most beneficial to you and those important to you.
This opportunity to sit with an attorney will be an exercise in acute listening.
In addition to what is said, make certain to hear what is not said. The action most appropriate will be cloaked in the description of the cascade of events that CAN happen should you choose a specific option. It is indeed this element that will create for you the leverage you need to get this home sold.....EVENTUALLY...most likely over a year away.
Without choosing to resolve this issue you are stuck! You can not buy another house. You can not move. You are very likely upside down if you purchased in 2007, the peak year. It's not going to be easy. It won't be pretty. But it is a pill you must take. Waiting only reduces the options available to you.

Wishing you the very best outcome.

Hello Sian,

If I understand correctly "they" are the children, and for the sale of your father's home, my suggestion would beto sell it as quickly as possible if you are sure about seeling the home, in order not miss the hot market activity.
Market usually slows down in the winter, you can get the best price from now unitl November.
Feel free to contact me for free consultation, I will be able to help you with any real estate questions that you might have.

Hey Timbyer723!

Can you give us all an update as to what's happening with your "friend and her BF"?

I'd really like to know because I have a young unmarried couple right now wanting to buy together and I'd love to add this story to my objections to them. Thanks! ... more

Contact a buyer's agent in the area that handles HomePath. You can just google it and find someone. Good luck to you!
