Hello Sunshine, sorry you feel that way but there are a lot of rental listings scams on this site as well as many other so beware of that but you are listed as a "renter" and commenting in "Home Buying in 93560"? What are you looking for in particular? The rentals in 93560 zip code start from $550 for 1bd 1ba apartment. The purchase in 93560 zip code start from 79k for 3bd 1ba single family home which is as low as $400 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score.

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. 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 and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You will also need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You may qualify FHA from 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.

If you have credit issues, your credit scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. 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...

Your agent may only have access to one Multiple listing service, and the property may be listed on another. Ask your agent if the properties that you are giving him are listed on an MLS that he does not have access to. He still should be able to show you the home, and submit your offer. ... more

Do not get too fired up about the low starting bid prices you may see on some sites. Keep your eyes open for the inspection period to view the property you are interested in.

Amy -

Are you talking about Morgan Hill? If so:


Small town, neighborly feel, beautiful back drops between west hills and Lake Anderson.
Great prices as the area was hit hard with distressed homes because it was one of the last neighborhoods with new development in 2005-2007. There are going to deals in 2011 but then a slow recovery in 2012-2014 is predicted for the area.

Lot size, land, price, newer homes available, and more square footage on average are key buying points.
Potential plus - CAL TRAIN. Eventual/projected high speed rail will increase desirability

Disadvantages : Some of the land is under authority of the Williamson Act.

If you are commuting to core Silicon Valley (Mtn View, Palo Alto), 101 commute is a bear. But - Cal train is available.

School scores are not as high as some would like but are improving.

Hope that helps.

Hello Dand3269,

Vacant Land in certain areas of the Antelope Valley are selling, but its a slow and laborious process right now. It's all in pricing the property correctly.

I've included a link below for you representing a Property Profile for the above referenced parcel. I do not personally handle vacant land, but if you would like a referral to an agent in the Antelope Valley who can handle vacant land, I'll be happy to assist you with that.

Best of luck,

Bob answered:
Here in Calif I was cautioned concerning buying an unfinished house ( no work done for 9 months ) that the subs wait till escrow closes or somehow are able to circumvent title insurance before putting on their liens. They do this because the amount of the liens are such that no new buyer could be found if all the liens were seen.
But it would seem like there would be some California required time period had passed since the last work was done, then they are just trying to scare someone into paying with unenforceable liens.

I do believe that there are many California specific mechnaics lien procedures and that any out of state advice, beyond working with the title company, could be very wrong.

Catherine Gutierrez answered:
Inventory in Rosamond in down right now, so prices have actually come up a little bit. A home that has been well maintained, is in a nice neighborhood, and is priced right should sell. Depending on the age of the home, you may wish to update some features of the home. If the neighborhood has a lot of vacancies and the properties are not maintained, you may have to price your home lower to attract a buyer. ... more
