In order to see if you will "save money" you have to calculate what you would pay for the entire term of the loan compared to the amount you would pay with the refinance. A loan officer will also be able to do this and usually it's easy to see in black and white. ... more

Masayuki Yamada,

Congratulations on starting school. In your question detail you did not state where you are looking to rent an apartment (city/state). But most owners require you to have a social security. But since you are an international student some owners may decide to rent to you but with more of a deposit and proof of funds.

If you would like more assistance please contact me directly.

Los Angeles County Real Estate Market is on on a very positive upswing. Extremely low inventories and home prices rising rapidly in most areas. I think 2013 is going to continue to be an aggressive year for price rises. If the Fed ends the quantitative easing it will only signal a strengthening economy which will outweigh any slight uptick in interest rates, so we should continue to see this rising trend for some time. Hopefully by the end of next year we should see all homes that were underwater, be back in great shape which will add more sellers to the market place and help with the low inventories. ... more

You can do this, but I do not recommend it.

I truly believe buyers are better served when they use dedicated professionals for services. I like to allow realtors to handle real estate related work...Lenders do the financing and lawyers handle any legal questions

Some of us may be jacks of all trades, but in buying a home lean to professionals who are master in ONE!

Best of success to you!!!

Kawain Payne, Realtor

Dorene Slavitz answered:
Dear Mr. Sosa,
Normally the county Tax Assessor's evaluation of the value of the land is on the low side, as is their view of the value of the Real Estate. Market value is higher. My opinion is that given the location,it would be wise for you to have a CMA done to assit in determining value, comparing other residential lots that have sold, in the immediate area to your property . If you want to go further, a licensed appraiser would be a good choice as their evauation of value is the most accurate. ... more

Mel1982 answered:
I am wondering the same thing. Why wouldn't someone be able to get the credit as long as they are paying for what the house is worth. I understand that no one should be able to get the credit if they are buying a 100,000.00 house for 40,000. If you are buying a 100,000.00 house for 100,000.00 then why wouldn't you be able to get the credit?? ... more

Michael answered:
To qualify as a first-time homebuyer, the purchaser cannot have owned a home within the previous three-year period. However, ownership of a vacation home or rental home does not disqualify the buyer.

you can be a home owner, the question is if you rent out a room in your primary home, collect rent, and file a schedule E can you now claim the credit, or if you own a rental must you also rent in a seperate location to qualify for the 8k credit?

Crestico Realty answered:
Sree, I will be more than happy to discuss in further detail all of the things included in an offer. Contact me directly. However, to answer your question on a general level, the offer includes things such as the following:

The amount of the the earnest money deposit; the method of financing, any contingencies; for example an offer spells out what you're buying in the contract. Common items to be specified include appliances, light fixtures, shades and drapes, storm windows, and flowers, shrubs and trees.

An offer can determine what special provisions should be included, such as for property taxes, insurance costs and utility bills; the closing date and possession date you want. Your Agent can tell you who typically acts as a settlement agent in your area.

And finally, other things like a discussion of closing costs, home insurance plans, inspection issues, and the costs associate with such things are also included.

Keith Sorem answered:
I just the knowledge that people have about the future!

The only absolute thing we know about future home values is that we don't know. It has much more to do about your personal situation than the market.

For example if you are renting now, buying is going to provide you with two things you don't have: significant tax savings, and owning an asset that will appreciate in the long term.

As Will Rogers said, "Buy land, they ain't makin' any more of it".

Talk with a financial planner, cpa, and Realtor about the pros and cons. In most markets, the intrinsic value is not affected by the economy. IOW, if an area or city has good schools and neighborhoods, there is a good chance that no matter what the prices may be, home values in these areas will remain higher than other areas with poor performing schools, poor public services, and other negative aspects.
