Hello Oliver, yes but here are some links to study crime and schools for yourself.

These links may assist you with crime statistics:

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 any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The purchase in Sun City start from 144k for 2bd 1ba single family home, 210k for 3bd 2ba single family home and from 284k for 4bd 3ba single family home.

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.

Do you have down payment and closing cost saved or do you need down payment and closing costs assistance.

Hello CKBaker46, I am a local Appraiser in the area and saw your question and was a bit puzzled, because approximately 15% of all listings are a REO/Short Sales. The percentage of foreclosed homes has been dropping steadily over the past 5-7 years and values have increased. I looked at the listings that you were looking at and did see the same thing, a lot of foreclosure listings, but if you look at the dates, many of them are from 2012 and earlier. It appears the list has not been updated. Hope that helps.

I can't imagine any landlord ever doing this unless you paid the deposit and full rent for the time up to April 1.

Unfortunately rent is driven by demand and location not age or income. There are those seniors who have other means of income i.e. investments, pensions, annuities, etc. in addition to their SS and can afford to pay the piper.

If that's all you have to work with you will have to lower your expectations about where you want to live. There are places in the Victorville, Apple & Lucerne Valley and Barstow areas that may be a better fit for your limited income.

JR Thrasher answered:
Not sure if I'm reading your question correctly. Are you looking for a home around $120,000 or are you looking for a home around $1,200,000? It says $1,200,000 in your question. If you are looking for a home at the lower price, think condo, your chances of finding a house at that price are slim to none. If you are looking for a home around $1,200,000...there are currently 21 homes for sale that should fit your criteria. I'll put a link to the list of available homes in the web reference below.

Hi Jokora14,

Buying your first home can seem complicated. The key is to find a good knowledgeable Realtor that you trust. They can refer you to a trusted lander you can help you with the financing side.

Once you're working with the right team of people, they'll show you that the experience can be fun and exciting.

I am sure this is frustrating for your agent as well. It is not a benefit to the agent for continuing to write offers and not get them accepted. As the saying goes "Time is Money". If your agent has been working with you since Feb, she is very tuned into what you are looking for and what your needs are. Starting with a new agent may not be your best choice. Multiple offer situations sometimes require you offering more than the asking price to get it. Don't be afraid to talk to For Sale By Owners. Most of them are willing to work with an agent. An agent in our office had that same situation with her buyer and another agent was commenting in the office meeting about a house that she would be listing. It matched perfectly on what her buyers were looking for and they wrote an offer before it was listed on the MLS and it got accepted. There is hope so be patient and follow the advice of your agent when making suggestions in writing an offer. ... more

Frank, in reference to your question about renting this home after purchasing it, I would talk to the management company that owns the mobile home park and see if rentals are allowed. You might also consult with a tax consultant and your lender on how this will affect you. ... more
