Well it sounds like you have mostly been working with the doctor, but it's probably time to start using social security or a disability lawyer to help you review your options. Dealing with someone who understand the ins and outs of those laws is easily your best bet. Good luck to you and your daughter, I hope things work out. ... more

Buyer may not just buy a home because of its color but may not want to see a home if it is a color they despise such as a pink home, purple, black and have had some buyers say no red homes. ... more

Best place to buy a one or two bedroom place is a condo or towhome. It is the contracts and developers making the choices of what they build. Three bedrooms tend to sell better then one bedroom homes do or even two bedrooms. People want the space these days to collect stuff and fill their homes, or extra space for family visits, or growth.

Condos have great options these days and are selling mush better than they used to, and if you don't want to sell it later down the road they are great investments to rent out later.

Find the areas that would best suit you and your future needs, look at everything that meets what you want in your future home. Take a long weekend and go check the are out so you know what type of area you will be living in, then check your price point what you can afford, get pre approved and head out with an agent. Once you find one you like make your move to purchase as it may not be there in a few weeks... inventory is short these days and homes are moving.

Make sure you do your home work so you find what works best for you and your future needs.

Best of luck!

Hi Debbie:

There are many websites out there that for a fee post this information....however it's not always accurate. My best advice is to contact or work with a local Realtor. Most full time active agents watch the market like a hawk and can provide you with daily updates on any properties available. I am a member of both Tuolumne and Calaveras MLS systems. If I can help in any way, please feel free to contact me.

Hi klancaster,

As the other's have answered below, there are a few options to purchase a house here in Sonora.
1. you can take a line of credit out against the home that you have in TX.
2. you can do what's called a "cash out refi" on your home in TX.
3. you can just purchase a home here in Sonora with approximately 20% down. Your payments on a loan of $200,000 at todays interest rate, including taxes and insurance would be approximately $1250.00 a month.

The first two options would allow you to "pay cash" for your new purchase. This would allow you to own the home here in Sonora outright however, the new loan would encumber your residence in TX. The third option would just be a loan on the new purchase.

As for rentals: In general a 3 bed 2 bath 2 car garage home on a town lot will typically rent for $1200-$1400 a month. I can help you with exact numbers when the time comes at

If you would like to search the homes currently for sale in the Sonora area here is a link:

I look forward to answering anymore questions that you may have.

Sure! , there are alway's sellers in the market that are willing to carry, However be prepared to pay above market interest say 7 to 8 percent instead of the 3.85 percent currently being offered by most lenders. Some will do interest only for 2 to 5 years with you the buyer refinancing and paying off the seller with in that time frame and still others want a payment plus interest it really comes down to what can be nego. between the parties involved. Remember alway's use a REALTOR to assist you in the transaction of this sort.

Hi C,

" I am appealing to Calif. Appraisal board " - Please keep us posted of the results.

In the meantime you should apply with a different lender if you think your current interest rates are high.
