Good evening California Tax Service:
You have chosen a great time to look at purchasing real estate in Palmdale. Interest rates are at historic lows and there is just enough inventory to make a home search exciting, regardless of your search criteria.
In regard to your price preference, you might need to go up to $100K or a little higher to find a move-in-ready 3+2 in the newer parts of East Palmdale (1980 and newer). Even then, the home will probably be on the smaller side, around 1,050 to 1,300 square feet. If you are willing to do some cosmetic repairs, ie: paint or carpet, you should have success with your price limit.
If you are open to buying an older home in East Palmdale , you will most likely find a nice one for $95,000, but I would suggest researching the older neighborhoods first to ensure that they meet your needs.
Should you wish to continue your research online before pounding the pavement, I can enroll you in a FREE website that will make your search very productive. The site gives you access to both the Antelope Valley board listings as well as those from out of the area agents. Just send me an email and I will get you going.
Thanks for your time and have a great evening!
