Since you're in the buyer's position right now, it shouldn't be hard to see the dilemma. Even if the house is in perfect condition otherwise, you'd still need to disclose the fact that there was a mold removal done. If it's been a few years, then you shouldn't have a problem selling. But it is something that should be discussed. ... more

Yes it is possible and in fact I encourage my clients to do so. Because short sales take so long, many times the buyer in first position gets tired of waiting or another non short sale comes available, that buyer leaves the transaction. If your name isn't in the hat, you will never be called. ... more

Because short sales to take long periods of time to get approved, many buyers and agents that are in first position tire and many times move on. I always suggest trying to get into a back up position and get it accepted as a first back up. You can still look for other property and if you find one that your offer gets accepted, your agent can always submit a withdrawal to the listing agent. ... more

There may be several things you can do to turn your credit situation around. I have a couple of resources on my website at With a little effort and a few months under your belt, most credit situations can be turned around and a higher score reached. FHA is lenient on medical situations. You can also call the medical places and make arrangements that are affordable and that will help also. ... more

Hi Cathlyn,

The best thing to do is to spend time in the area. If you’re out having lunch, park next to the home. Also, you could knock on a few doors and ask the neighbors how they feel about the noise and smell. However, there is nothing like finding out for your self. Just like opinions, everybody has their own unique level of acceptance for odors and noise. As a Realtor, I point out these issues all the time, but it never ceases to surprise me how often folks don't mind highway noise, when I personally can't stand it. I guess it’s just a difference of opinion or my hearing is significantly better.

Let us know if you have any other questions and best regards,

Lizzy, Unfortunately I do not see 3960 Clydesdale in Riverbank as being on the market. I do show 3948 Clydesdale as pending sale as of June 15th 2009 and it is also a 4 bd 3 bath with 1755 sqr feet.
This may be a home that is in the process of forclosure so it may come on the market down the road. If you would like to know about similar homes or would like to be put on an automated email list to notified of homes on the market feel free to drop me a line.
Hope this helps to answer your question.
Best of luck,

I have never seen a bank withhold the asking price. I think you might be early in the game as Laami suggested. Bank's are pretty specific about how they want to handle offers. Ask the listing agent when the home will officially be on the market and make your offer then. ... more

Hi Amanda,
I work in the area of Riverbank, my suggestion would be to have your Realtor run the comparables for the local neighborhood, especially keeping in mind who built what and what those are going for. In Riverbank you are going to find large price differences between Bright, KB, Morrison and Floresheim. Grant and Oski also have a couple developments there. In addition, how close is it to the Crossroads shopping center and so on.......

If you do not currently have an agent there are ways of obtaining it online, but as a buyer, we (meaning agents) are free. I could run the comparables for you and bring them to your house if you would like and help you make a better informed decision,

Hope this helps,

Nick Cameron
