Hello viewers, it is unfortunate that our secret fraternity has become
what most people now use as their aim of getting money, I would say sorry
to the people who had fall to those once who claim of being an agent of our
secret fraternity called Illuminati. The Illuminati is mainly from Egypt and Kenya, and note that
our present head office is now in USA. There are only five agents whom
were recently sent to Nigeria to establish the church of Lucifer in Africa.
And the other thing is that we the real Illuminati agents are scarce and very hard
to identify , you can only identify us with our email address: D.worldwideilluminati@gmail.com and whatsapp number which is +(234)7053-722-210, and please for those who haven't yet be
scammed and are willing to join, please be careful because there are alot of
fraudsters and so many imposters now who claims they are real. So now I will
want those who are interested to hit this email address:
D.worldwideilluminati@gmail.com for the link on how to join our
fraternity or hit us a message on our whatsapp with this number
+(234)7053-722-210 for quick conversation on how to start. And there are still
alot of fraudsters on whatsapp now and we are the only agents you should reach...so please beware of internet fraudsters...

What type of pest control and where? Common areas? Or in an actual Mobile home? First thing I would do in your situation is check with park management or read through your agreement.

Most of the homes in your price range will be 3 bedroom.

Your important criteria will be evident in the most expensive zip codes. College Graduates tend to earn more, be wealthier, buy, own, and even rent in the more expensive parts of a city. Crime lowers property values, so the lowest price areas have a higher incidence of reported crime.

Real Estate agents do not research crime rates for their clients, partly because no place is 100% safe and we should not pretend to offer a guaranty of total safety.

Another reason is we don't want to participate or be perceived as participating in an outlawed practice from the twentieth century called "steering" "Steering" was a racially motivated practice of sending people of color to buy houses only in neighborhoods where there was already a sizable population of color. We don't talk about crime rates because some Black and Latino neighborhoods in this country tend to experience excessive attention from the police, even when that extra attention is uncalled for.

Your concern is widespread. As a result agents offer web site link for the sheriff's department site, Megan's Law site and similar searches.

If I were to show you houses I would send you information about listings all over Sacramento, Elk Grove, Citrus Heights, Antelope, Rancho Cordova, Orangevale, Carmichael and Fair Oaks. You would have many choices in those towns, within your budget..

$350,000 is on the low side for Rocklin, Roseville, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, & Granite Bay, People pay huge premiums for those cities partly because of the reputation of their schools, But they are great places to live even if the kids are grown or have not arrived yet. But $350,000 is far below the median price in those towns.

Is this legal? Our history is perfect and even after signing off they waited days to send any information. They are risking us becoming homeless before the application is complete.

Actually here is California real estate agents do sell used mobile homes. Brand new mobile homes we do not do but used we do every day.

If using an agent they'll take care of all the paperwork for you. If not using an agent first talk to you park management as most require park approval prior from the prospective buyer. The buyer should provide you a purchase agreement, if not a local title company or real estate attorney should be able to provide one to you. ... more

Worried? Probably not. More than likely you are paying less than the other roommates and doesn't want you disclosing your cheaper rate as they might want the same rent or they might leave. Did you ask them why? ... more

Hello Catherine, I hope you found a place to rent by now. You could rent 3-4 bedroom 2 bath single family homes in Sacramento up to $1,800 rent. You should also study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about the same as rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs. You may qualify to purchase 3-4 bedroom 2 bath single family homes for less monthly payment than rent in Sacramento.

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. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

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 fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

I bought my home in Old North Sac back in Spring of 2015, and initially I was apprehensive about crime. Even though the crime stats are low relative to other areas of the city where you can still buy a house for less than $250K, I was worried because there are homeless folks around. In reality, I have had zero problems in 2.5 years (even though I walk around in the neighborhood, and use the train and bus daily). Well actually – full disclosure – I once caught a lady picking grapefruit from my tree. I just told her to take what she could carry, and to ask permission next time. Never saw her again.

One of the older comments on this thread talks about how the neighborhood isn’t bad (true), but that seeing homeless people regularly grinds you down a bit. I would say this is also true. The antidote for me was first getting to know my neighbors (just quick chats in passing over the years), and then I really started to feel good once I found a neighborhood group. They helped me learn about the projects & businesses going in on Del Paso Blvd. I also feel more invested in the neighborhood, have met other residents, homeowners, and business owners in the area, and even made new friends through the group.

After a couple of years, I’m happy with my decision to move here. I’m glad I bought a home I can afford without stretching, that my apprehension about crime turned out to be largely unfounded, and that the neighborhood is on the upswing.

Hello Sarah, you may want to contact some local rental management companies to view their inventory and make arrangements. Most agents do not show rentals. Rentals vary with a start date as well so you want to coordinate those dates with the standing inventory.

You should also study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

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.

Hello Lio, you would need to get pre-approved first to know what your purchase power is and how much your maximum payment you are looking to achieve will buy.

Do you have down payment and closing costs saved or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs? Do you know your fico scores and if you have any credit issues that are reporting incorrectly?

Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Rich Reed answered:
Are you working with a Realtor as your exclusive representative? Your Realtor should be advising you about negotiating your specific purchase agreement with the seller.
Setting future rents, after you become the landlord, wouldn't generally be part of a purchase agreement. Consider what it is that you want to accomplish and consult with your agent, your broker, and your attorney about your specific transaction. ... more
