You should consider googling the demographics of the community and using www.greatschools.org to find out more info! Both of these are topics that realtors cannot legally answer.

Pending means the property has an accepted offer and is in escrow. Have your Realtor inquire on status and to let the owner know you are interested in case the sale falls through. Have your Realtor submit a "back up offer" on the property.... more
Speak to an attorney. Refrigerator, washer and dryers are generally considered to be personal property. However the sale was three years ago and I think it could easily be argued they now belong to you as the owner of the property and not the your tenant. Certainly you would not permit a tenant to tkae these out of the other two units.
Light fixtures are fixtures and should never be removed. Personally you should have had them evicted the moment the lease expired, it's clear that your dealing with a jerk.... more
I lived right around the corner from there for many years. I know most of the people in the neighborhood and I do not recall anyone dying there in the 10+ years I lived there. Also like others have answered a seller in California needs to disclose if anyone has died in the home in the last 3 years.... more
I like Keith Sorem's answer. Most buyer's agents aren't going to specialize for too long if they are going to stay afloat. They may "niche" but here's the thing . . . what if they specialize and there are no homes currently on the market in that price range and/or condition? Doesn't matter that they specialize if there's no inventory. Your friend just needs to find an "old fashioned" agent that is going to work with them for the long-haul and bird dog the listings for him.... more
If the work was done by a reputable company hopefully you have the receipt for work done. When you sell the home down the road, pass the information to the next buyer. If you have a problem in the meantime, if it is a reputable company they should stand behind their work.
I do not know from your question if you have closed escrow yet or not. If you have not, you could get the foundation inspected by a reputable inspection company to confirm that the foundation is ok.
I am always leary about getting the city involved. I have a neighbor that found foundation problems after the fact: An electrician spotted it doing some other work in the house and said he had to report it to the city. Now.... he has to spend tens of thousands of dollars on foundation work that the city is insisting he has done.
City building codes change.
A private inspection firm is the way to go if you are concerned about your foundation. One that you both agree upfront will not report his findings to the city.... more

Over the past 14 months, I've assisted 3 of my investors acquire 33 properties at the Norwalk & Pomona trustee sales. As a real estate broker, I've assisted my clients acquire & dispose the properties to other investors or to the retail market. The auction process must be carefully researched and performed otherwise the buyer may lose a lot of money. Trust me, I've see it happen. A ton of research is required for each property prior to bidding. I would advise you to perform your own due deligence or contact an agent/broker who specializes in this form of real estate for assistance. Also keep in mind that trustee sales are all cash/cashier check. No financing is available and 100% of the bidding amount must be collected after the auction. One of the benefits of buying at trustee sales vs waiting for the bank owned properties is the discounted price/percentage. Now more than ever, I'm seeing an increase of potential investors, buyers, or curious watchers attend the trustee sales to get into the action. It's no secret, a lot of money is being made daily. Keep in mind that this is a risky business if you are not well aware of the process. Take some time to do your own research and be more prepared. Attend several of the auctions to understand the bidding process. Ask questions if you are unsure of what's going on. A lot of seasoned investors may or may not assist but it doesn't hurt to try. Good luck!
