Hi Mike,

There are a lot of great Realtors out there. I can also advise you to "hire me please" but what you really want is someone who specializes in your area. Who knows Mission Viejo like the back of their hand. Find one who also lives here, sends their kids to school here and can tell potential buyers what is so wonderful about Mission Viejo. As agents we aren't just selling your home, we are selling the area and the ability to create a wonderful family life here. A good agent will be able to turn any negative into a positive for a potential buyer. They will also be able to answer tough questions on the fly when necessary.
Good Luck in your search!

it is always advisable to use an agent. The purchase of real estate is a complex transaction that requires disclosures and details that are not obvious to the general public. A relator works for a broker and is the front line of the transaction assisting both buyers and sellers. ... more

Hi There,

A smart man once said, "The best way to achieve a large goal is to set small goals". I would suggest meeting with a lender and seeing how close or far away you are from getting the funding you need to achieve the home you desire. Have great year and best of luck in the future! ... more

Old question, great answers! The Good Neighbor program is still in effect and is a viable option for school teacher, police, firefighters and EMT personnel. Contact a mortgage professional to determine programs that may be beneficial for your specific situation.

It is still possible, but not likely. The market has definitely become much more competitive for buyers and therefore there just isn't a lot of inventory out there. Consider all areas and feel free to email me or call me if you would like me to send you properties to consider in my area. ... more

Hi Pierre,

I understand....and by the way, I live in the Madrid Del Lagos....very nice area. Try not to buy into the frenzied activity, it's not always the first ones in, nor the cash buyers, who get the deal. The main thing is to find the right home, then we position you to get the home.

As a listing agent, I would rather have an FHA buyer who loves the home and will work through the deal to the end, than a cash buyer who writes offers on everything they see. What I do as a buyer's agent is create a relationship with the seller's agent and clearly explain why my buyers are the best ones to work can be done.

Combine this strategy with the ability to get listings the minute they hit the you don't miss anything, and it really puts us ahead of the competition.

I'd be happy to work with you....if you are not working with anyone yet. If you're interested, shoot me an email and we can chat a bit more, see if we're a match.

Brian VerBurg answered:
A true foreclosure sale happens at auction and is paid for cash. They types of deals can be great, but there is competition and the buyer needs to know what they are doing.
Most people who want to buy foreclosures do not have enough cash to purchase a home outright at auction but they can get a loan to purchase a home. In this case you can purchase a home that was previously foreclosed on and now the bank owns (called an REO- this happens when the bank was owed more than anyone was willing to bid at the auction- they then own the property and list it with an agent at lower than market price) or you can purchase a shortsale- which is a preforclosure sale. In both of these case you make an offer to the lender and after acceptance there is an escrow period giving you enough time to obtain a loan (of course you must already be pre approved when submitting the offer).
I hope this helps.

Brian VerBurg answered:
This is a common probably with appraisals, when you can not find similar comps within a mile it will have to be explained and supported by even more comps than normal. You are gonig to have to expand the comp search and include comps from farther away (hopefully within 3 to 5 miles). The appraiser will also have to include some close by comps and can adjust them up to a max of 25% over their sale price (for this home being newer and larger, etc.). Its comes back to the old saying that "you don't want the best home in the neighborhood" otherwise it might not be worth on paper as much as you think and it certainly is hard to get financing. ... more
