As real estate professionals we are careful that we aren't accused of "Steering". When it comes to clients who have concerns about any area we always suggest that they check with the local police department. I have a link on my website that helps my clients in considering areas in regard to crimes and types of crimes. You can visit my site at www.mcgrathaguirre.com ... more

The cash price is EXACTLY the same as the financed price. To the seller, it will ALL be cash at the closing table.

A cash offer allows you to changes the terms and conditions of your offer such as:
Quick close
No appraisal
No pre-conditions
No inspection contingency
These options can have a material value to the seller, depending on their situation. Since the 'real' seller in a short sale is the bank/investor, your offer can be presented in economic terms that will have persuasion..

If you don't want the house, go ahead and place a CASH offer that is 60% of fair market value...CASH! Then you will realize what I'm talking about. Statistically,in Florida, short sales are sold at 15% less than traditional sales....after waiting 6 to 48 months to close....and only 30% actually close as a short sale. (and they are over 80% cash purchases.)


Best of Success to you,

In addition to what Rocky provided, Via Terreno is located in a small gated community east of Modesto that is adjacent to a railroad track that services a near by Amtrak station.

The best thing to do is to contact the local police department with the address of a home you're interested in to check on the criminal activity. You could also check Megan's Law website.

I hope this helps,

Rocky

I am a licensed painting contractor in Modesto. My customers ask me to match colors of homes they have seen all the time! I have done this for about 25 years now! I would be happy to match the color for you. All you need to do is provide me with the address. I see your question was asked in August 2009 so it's probably irrelevant now, but I'm happy to help.

If you are not familiar with the area, now is the time to explore--check out all that is important to you/your lifestyle--simply drive around, check out shops, parks, dine at local eateries, etc.--then take it from there, you'll be glad you did and will thank yourself later. ... more

Roselia, this property is still active as of 10/12...if you have interest, have your agent contact the listing agent. If you don't have an agent and would like me to research it for you, call me at 209-505-8679, or email me at curt@curtgreengroup.com if that's easier for you. Best of luck.. ... more

Curt Green answered:
What defines a safe neighborhood is subjective, as everyone's standards are different. I would recommend you obtain local police activity reports, and talk to the neighbors in the area you look to buy in. I always suggest to my clients to visit the neighborhood at different times of the day, different days of the week, and just sit in your car for a few minutes and observe...or even try to talk to some of the neighbors you might find outside or taking a walk...they're always your best source of information. ... more
