Are you refering to an available property in Cherry Plaza? Some HOA's have a weight restriction for pets. Please give me a call or the listing agent for that property and we can provide you with an accurate answer.

This is a fairly new complex with all the modern features we would expect. That includes air conditioning and inside laundry. I have toured these homes before and they are quite nice. The HOA policy restricts pets to a maximum of 2 and no fighting breeds.... more
1. Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.
2. Get a referral to a good, local, real estate attorney. Call the attorney, retain the attorney so you have her information handy when you make an offer. Having that information at time of offer helps you demonstrate to the Seller how serious you are, and they will consider your offer with more interest.
3. Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.
4. Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

You can ask the HOA or any of the listing agents about litigation. New construction generally drops in value, as do new cars, unless the market is especially strong and housing choices limited. Instead, we've seen several distressed properties come on the market and in general, prices drop 10-30% when that happens, especially when there are more than one distressed home.... more

Just a quick comment on the response about a 10 year warranty and how important it is to get that. In California, all residential construction has a 10 year warranty for builder defects. With condo or townhouse complexes, when they get to be about 7 or 8 years old you'll find the Home Owner Association (HOA) hiring inspectors and contractors to give the place a very careful inspection to see if there's anything wrong. If there is, and the builder doesn't readily fix it, the HOA will start litigation. This can sometimes make it tough to sell a unit. If you're looking to buy a younger home that's 7-9 years old, always ask if there's litigation and ask if there's been a recent effort to discover any building defects before the 10 year timeframe ends.... more
