Calatlantic used to be Standard Pacific so you may want to search for them. Both are decent well known builders in the area. Also, most builders use subs who rotate around among the different builders in the area. So chances are the same works may end up working on both homes. No matter the builder, no home will be without issues. I had a client buy a Calatlantic home last year and 3 months after she moved in they finally fixed all the issues wrong with it. ... more

Realtor work under a draconian rule about discussing Race and Religion:
We cannot comment. period!
If we do, it is called "steering" and we can lose our license.
I also believe that these questions perpetuate more than they solve. ... more

Changing jobs within the same field is usually not a problem, of course the lender will look at your work history (how long have you been in this field) and may want to wait until you've passed any probationary periods with your new employer.

Best to take an hour and sit down with a lender and they will tell what you need to do or if you need to wait. Many mortgage brokers and loan officers do work weekend or evenings so you should be able to meet around your schedule.

I think Belinda made a great suggestion.

There are currently numerous high visibility commercial and retail sites vacant around Roseville, for either lease or purchase. There are so many advantages to have your business in an area already zoned for business, you should check out the neighborhood shopping centers. Have an agent who is familiar with both commercial and residential help you in your search. ... more

Hello Mrs. Galbraith. Looks like you have quite a few agents to choose from. I think Jim Walker is making a good point about the cost of relocating compared to cost of transportation. It would be important to know more details about why you desire to move from your current location (by the way, I would recommend that you not use your full name for your Trulia profile as anybody with a little bit of research skills can find out where you live which is not a good idea for many reasons).

I would highly recommend that you get pre-approved for a loan to purchase the new home before you put your property on the market. Get pre-approved and then start looking at homes near Kaiser to see if there are any homes that meet your criteria in your price range. For the sake of this post, I will assume that you won't have to short sell your current home and will be able to repurchase right away. Feeling confident that you will be able to find a home that meets your criteria is important as you would not want to be in the unfortunate position of having to close on your current home without having a new home selected as you would want to avoid moving twice (it's costly).

I would be happy to chat with you in more detail to help you with putting together a plan that works best for you.

Best regards,
Ute Ferdig

I learned this week that we should respond to internet leads within the first five minutes and that's not with an auto responder. How odd that a phone call should be any different.

I'm just curious. I read the entire stream and know that this is a fairly old question, but were you calling Realtors that you had a previous relationship with or were these just cold calls? I get referrals from lenders that I have worked with in the past and love and appreciate those folks and will jump to call them back - not only because I like them, but because I know wiifm (what in it for me) - a pre approved client, who knows how wonderful I am (smile smile - no emoticon here) ready to go.

If these were just cold calls, they really weren't your customers yet anyway. They were rude not to call you back, but if they sensed that you were "selling something", well sorry , guy, but it happens to us, too.

Good luck. If you called me, I would probably call you back. I'm just curious by nature, but I'm not in California, and I heart my Texas lenders.

I would also recommend looking on craigslist. I always advertise rentals only on craigslist.

Like any neighborhood right now crime is up everywhere due to the bad economy. Overall Roseville is a safe place to live. Do you perfer to live in the older parts of Roseville or in the new homes? There is a Slavic Baptist Church in Roseville and also one in North Highlands where you can meet people. The commute is not too bad in the morning and evening. It takes on average an extra 15 minutes with no accidents. ... more
