At the risk of opening a can of worms...

We are potentially looking to buy in the community. I know this thread is several years old now and am therefore reading it knowing that things may have changed since it was written.

So, to any current owners / residents, how have things been in the past couple of years? Any issues you think a potential buyer should be aware of?

Thanks in advance, and let's all try and keep things friendly if there are varying opinions!

Hi, Erin-
This is a question best directed to your Realtor! Here are a few things to look at:
- how are the pictures on the listing? Professional? 90% of home-buyers start their search on the internet, so make sure your pictures look good! Along with that is the property description- has to be top-notch and complete!
-how many open houses have you done, and are they promoted on the internet?
-are you priced competitively for your market?

Let me know if you need anything else!

The answer is a very simple one. Online valuation tools are not accurate in the least. A Zillow estimate is almost always wrong! If you want to learn why Zillow estimates are so inaccurate just read the article provided below. If you want an accurate value of your home consult with a top local real estate agent. ... more

The Co-Ops in United Mutual have very specific income and asset requirements. I've outlined them below and provided a link to the resale application package on the Laguna Woods Village Community website. One important item to consider is that the $125,000 asset requirement is on top of the funds needed to purchase whichever property you are considering.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

United Mutual Co-Ops

Income Requirement:
“Prospective members must provide satisfactory verification of income of at least $36,000 per year at the time of purchase.”

Asset Requirement:
“The prospective buyer of a manor shall submit satisfactory verification of assets equal to the purchase price of the manor plus $125,000.” - click on Resale/Lender Information --> Resale Information --> United Co-Op Resale Appication Package

Carmen Rodriguez answered:
A home in default does not mean the house is for sale. It simply means that the homeowner is now in default with their mortgage or in other words behind on their payments. Depending on the State if this home even gets to market for sale (as many don't since owners may negotiate loan with lender and keep their homes with a loan modification). The first stage would be a shortsale if the lender even allows it. Also, since the owner is in default you will likely NOT be able to negotiate this solely with the buyer as shortsales require the approval of multiple parties including the buyer and lender/investors.

Robert Spinosa answered:

Keep the faith. Yes, there are reasons why a VA loan can be harder to approve and fund than other types of financing, but the real answer to your question is "timing." Right now, many markets are competitive and sellers will not take any chances. But markets do not move in a straight line and today's scarlet letter offer may well be tomorrow's godsend. In 2008 and 2009, sellers were clamoring for ANY offer, and somewhere between the dynamics of now and then there will be a balance that will make your VA offer more viable. Stay at it, stay approved and ready to go and you will win in the end.

Do not take Satar's advice below and write the offer as conventional and then change it to VA. That could cause a lot of issues down the road and put your deposit at risk. Some of those issues will not be perceptible at the outset and some may not even be related to your creditworthiness. Always take the high road.
