What do you want to know? We specialize in the San Gabriel Valley, but I'm sure you could find a local Realtor in San Pedro to help you. Not every Realtor knows how to find information on foreclosures, so find one that does. Best of luck to you! ... more

This property is for rent.


Not by this "agent" on the Trulia site, so my opinion is do not contact this person. If he were an agent, he would be using his full name & his license # would be displayed on the website link.

I can hook you up with the actual listing agent if you'd like.

Shoot me an email directly or give me a call, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for Answers or Replies posted after mine.

If you use the "friends" company to buy it and lease it to you with an option to buy, you will be paying at least 3% more than the market value of the house (the transaction fee), and if you elect to not exercise the option and not buy it, the 5% down payment which may be $15,000 or $20,000 or more is forfeited. It's non refundable option money. Get a local competent real estate agent who can determine what you need and can afford, get pre-approved by a lender, and buy what you can afford at today's very low rates whether it is a conventional purchase, if you have the down payment or an FHA, if you don't have sufficient down.

One thing you can do is run multiple internet estimates. For example: Trulia, Zillow, Eppraisal, and any Core Logic product. These combined should give you a more solid range as to where a proper appraisal may come in at. ... more
