Spencers crossing is a new and developing area like Adam mentioned. The only thing about these new developments are the Mello Roos and Special assessment taxes that will bump your payment up. If you are considering this area. I would recommend crossing over Winchester Rd, and you can apply for USDA 0 down loan, and move into an area that is part of the Temecula School district without the sticker price.

You can check your eligibility for USDA loans and other programs here.

Murrieta Buyer answered:
I just refinanced on my 1st home using the HARP program and we have made an offer on a short sale property. In our situation, I qualified for both loans so its not too much of a big deal. We are excited but the short sale has taken 6 weeks so far and no end in site. All I can say is get the ReFi done ASAP, then when you have your new mortgage payment, see a new lender about your purchase amount to determine what you can afford based upon your circumstances. Remember, always get 3 quotes for a loan. I typically get a few big banks and a mortgage bank. Once you have that ready research what you can lease your 1st home for and if you can cover that note now with the new mortgage. Then enjoy your shopping. I know for us, we are buying in West Murrieta and it is HIGHLY competitive. The home we picked was on the market for 48 hours and had 10 offers. We offered 8% above asking and won. We were lucky. Things are selling fast and inventory is low so I see prices slowly climbing up. I think its the best time to buy. Under 4% on a 30yr isn't going to last much longer.

Good luck!!!!

First, get the refi done and drop your rate and payment while you can; as long as it makes sense and doesn't cost too much.

Hi Camelia,
Michael is right - MBK Homes built your home in 2001. That tract is very nice. Congratulations on your purchase!

Lisa, I'm so sorry for your trouble! You should contact an attorney to get the correct answer as Realtors cannot give legal advice. A good place to start is

Cash for keys usually works out very well for both the tenant and the bank. However, you can probably dig your heels in and make them give you a 60 day notice. But, again, legal counsel is the way to go here! ... more

Tim, If you are not a broker then you still have to be under a California Licensed Broker. For advice about the advantages of Incorporation and the Department of Real Estate Rules seek out a CPA. Financial Accounting Services is a good source. They are in Temecula. Good Luck! ... more
