I agree with the others. Verification of income will likely pose a problem...Your best bet is to find a mortgage broker in your community. A broker has access to a wide variety of loans and will be able to best guide you.

Good luck.

If you are referring to the listings that you see here on, most of them are real. Some of the rentals have been posted by scam artists. The reason that I say that is because the Agents or Brokers on here do not have control of what is posted. Nor does Trulia. When we see something that is too good to be true, it usually is. If you know of a listing on here that is not correct,, it is best to report it to Trulia right away and they will remove the listing. Your best bet is to always work with a Realtor. We are your best defense against scams.

All the best,

The answer is Yes! You can move your tax base over to your new property utilizing Proposition 60 & 90. There are guidelines that must be met so please do your homework.

Call me if you are still in the market for a home.

Gregorio Denny answered:
Part time jobs are not generally considered to be stable income. In addition, Rental income from boarders in a one-unit property that is also the borrower’s principal residence or second home is not generally considered acceptable stable income with the exception of the following:

• When a borrower with disabilities receives rental income from a live-in personal assistant,
whether or not that individual is a relative of the borrower, the rental payments can be
considered as acceptable stable income, in an amount up to 30% of the total gross income
that is used to qualify the borrower for the mortgage. Personal assistants typically are paid by
Medicaid Waiver funds and include room and board, from which rental payments are made to
the borrower.

Your chances of getting financing are not promising as a result, but this is not to suggest you should not try. Applying is free and it can't hurt.

Emily Knell answered:
Please don't do a lease option in a declining market. The problem with the lease option is you'll have to put up "option money" which could be $3k-10K or more & then you need to agree on a price today, when that price could be less when you go to exercise your option.

Best thing you can do is this: Sign a new lease with a landlord & include an addendum that simply states "Tenant has the 1st right of refusal should landlord wish to sell within my 1 yr lease term". That means when the owner does decide to sell you get 1st dibs & you didn't have to spend any extra $ for those privilege.

Agatha Juarez answered:
Property taxes are paid twice a year. The first installment is due November 1 and are delinquent December 10th. The 2nd installment is due February 1st and are delinquent on April 10th. If you closed in December your taxes will be pro-rated from January to February and will be paid through escrow. The seller will recieve a credit for the days that you pay from the close of escrow date. Escrow will take care of properly applying the credit and payments to the buyer and seller. You cannot close escrow without these payments/credits being made.

Be aware that you will most likely receive a supplemental tax bill after escrow closes. The county assesor will re-assess your property based on the new property value vs the old property value. This bill will also be pro-rated based on your close of escrow date and the next tax installment due.
