Hi Krista,

Both communities are excellent. As others have stated, Moorpark will typically give you more home for your dollar. However, Camarillo's Mission Oaks neighborhood is affordable for many young couples and has good proximity to services. I am partial to Moorpark. I live here and my husband and I raised our family here. Moorpark is the kind of place where kids still ride their bikes to school, have lemonaid stands and trick-or-treat in large packs. It was rated last year as the safest city in Ventura County. We have very low crime rates, great schools, more parks than developed areas, excellent shopping and the best 4th of July celebration around! (it's actually held on the 3rd of July). If you are looking for a "true" sense of community, Moorpark will not disappoint.

I am also happy to help you if you need an agent who knows all the ins and outs of our great City of Moorpark.

Thanks for your question.

Dianna Dingman

Hello Darlene, you did not include an address or link to know more specifically the rental you are inquiring about? If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Hello ingodwetrust5, I am afraid the rental inventory is quite low and the rentals start higher than that in the cities you are inquiring about. The rentals in Thousand Oaks currently start from $1,750 for 2bd 2ba condo while the rentals in Simi Valley start from $1,650 for 2bd 2ba condo.

Your home doesn't always appreciate by 4%. This year could be 4%, next year could be 10%. It jumps around and is unpredictable.
It's like putting money in the stock market. You do so hoping that when you withdraw/sell, you've made some money.
- Like Robert C said, you get to deduct your interest and property taxes off your taxes! That's a bonus!

Pat & Mike Hanley, MBAs answered:
This is a tough one. If your purchase is here in California you have a statutory home warranty that covers most items for a period of time and I believe the limit is 4 years for plumbing and sewer. What you want to know NOW is whether the installation was correct and properly designed for the house, the sewer line and the possible conditions. For that I can only recommend that you hire a plumbing contractor. Even he may not be able to inspect the back flow device (BFD) since many are below ground.

Other than that, read the builder's warranty and check out how reputable they are, how long in business and all the other due diligence items you need to perform. I wish I could offer more.

Give us a call or e-mail if you would like to discuss further.

All the best -

Mike

Barry Shapiro answered:
Look for the address of the home you would like to PREVIEW on the list (link) below. They are all in PRICE order, all in Moorpark. If it says "Active" we can likely go see the home. However, if the listing shows [Status: Back Up Offer] next to the Bedrooms/Baths/Square Footage, then there is already an escrow opened and an accepted offer. These may not have showing capabilities. We can get you pre-qualified for a loan over this rainy-day weekend too :-) ... more

That might be the question some homeowners are asking. Buyers are concerned they waited too long since local prices have recently escalated by apx 20%. Anyway, "prices are so low" is a relative term. Go home shopping in Detroit or Kentucky and your opinion may change drastically. ... more
