Unfortunately Trulia/Zillow aren't connected with our MLS so there is always the chance of incorrect data. If you want accurate data try a site that syncs with our MLS.

Counties do no have any regulatory authority in the transfer of real property. All inspections and reports are determined by the agreed upon terms of the real estate purchase agreement. As a general rule of thumb it is always best practice to have properties thoroughly inspected. ... more

You will pay a little bit of a premium in Roseville but it is growing at a strong pace and research API scores of schools to get a better idea of where the best place to raise a family is. I also have family in Elk Grove also but chose Rocklin due to the school district and amount of activities that are always going on here. Let me know if I can assist you in your home search. ... more

Well you know what is wrong with the house, and you wont have to move.

Make sure that you do not pay too much for the house, perhaps have the seller agree that the price will be based on a professional appraisal.

Most likely the seller has looked on Trulia or somewhere to get an idea of the value. Trulia is based on properties that are on the market. Many of which are fixed up to sell. Your house will be as is.

You should probably ask the seller to pay all of your closing costs as it will be a lot less expensive and easier for the seller to have you buy it.

Properties with renters typically sell way under the market.

If you would like to get pre-approved for a loan give me a call, My pricing and service are extraordinary. I am also a licensed real estate broker and can walk you through the process at no extra charge.

Hello Kxt1977, a gift can be any amount. You may consider qualifying yourself with as low as .5% half percent down payment program from a minimum 580 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, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

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 up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.

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. The purchase in Roseville start from 107k for 2bd 1ba condo which is as low as $550 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score @107k.

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...

Hi David,
Both Lincoln and Roseville are great areas to live in. What are you looking for in your new home? Are school districts important to you?

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
1 thing to keep in mind is that the house is not being advertised anymore after the listing date expires. We all hope the pending sale will follow through and close but the agent is missing out on his name out there for new buyers and the seller is missing out if the current buyer cancels because nobody looking will see it listed. We all know how Murphys Law works, right? ... more

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
Appraisers are just people giving their opinion of value. 3 different appraisers can give 3 different values. Hopefully all are in the same ballpark. The appraisers are a 3rd party to the lenders so their isn't any conflict of interest. Although I wish we could lock up a couple appraisers and throw away the keys for their lousy appraisals, they are not bound by any accurate appraisal laws. They are hired by the lenders to make sure the value of the home works with the loan you are receiving. The lenders have to protect themselves in case you don't make your payments. Appraisals might not always come in at what we want them to but the lender is the one loaning their money so we have to play by their rules. The Zestimate is not an accurate appraisal system to rely on either. It's good for general prices found in the area you are looking. ... more

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
Neither are accurate across the board. They have computer programs that put numbers together. Prices get updated after homes are sold. If the home is in a community where there are a lot of the same models and many have sold, then the prices can be pretty close to market value. In my area there are homes worth $300K to over 1 million and the numbers can be all over the place. But you can always see the general value of the area with a quick look. You really have to find a realtor or 2 to give you actual sold and active comps that are in the market today to have the true value. ... more

Hi Tyna. There are a lot of variables that go into closing costs for a home sale such as escrow fees, title insurance, property tax pro ration, commissions, etc. It will also depend on how the offer is accepted and how knowledgeable your agent is on negotiating the best deal for you. A title company can give you a fairly good idea if you have some of the information mentioned above. ... more

Mitzi De La Cruz answered:
Hi Noralee, this definitely won't necessarily disqualify you from being eligible for a home loan. It depends on your debt to income ratio, however, as far as the amount that you're able to get approved for. There are loans such as the USDA Guaranteed Loan that offer 100% financing for people with "reasonable credit" which means that their guidelines aren't necessarily based on a credit score. You would be considered before someone who had collection accounts but wasn't actively attempting to resolve the accounts like you are.

Call me to learn more...I have an amazing lender who will assess your individual situation and help you get qualified. If he can't do it, nobody can! My phone number is 916-871-8132, and I look forward to your call.

Best of luck!
