Hello Chris, Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:

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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

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. You may qualify to buy FHA with 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. 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, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

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...

Hello Totoies,

The Santa Monica College is a great place to get an education. Make sure you check out the John Drescher Planetarium if you go there.

San Dee,
Good news if you own a condo in Santa Monica's Ocean Park area. Values are on the upswing. With low inventory and low interest rates demand is higher than supply right now.

Catherine - Welcome! Some of the professionals in the community are more easily distracted than others.
That's what makes it interesting. Don't let Mack scare you away...his distinctive responses are lightly sprinkled with sarcasm, peppered with sophisticated cynicism and served hot with a side of humor.

You may consider posting a blog to share with the community market trends you are experiencing in New York.

Again, Welcome!

Dan, fabulous!

Dunes, I have to admit, I haven't sold more Yankee hats than a Yankee can. And Alicia Keys is not returning my phone calls. In fact, I have to give it up for Catherine Holmes, "I break the rules, so I don't care; so I keep doin' my own thing, walkin' tall against the rain."

Shout out! New York loves Benton County refer-rals!
