Once it is entered it stays until it is deleted by the listing agent. Under status it reads This property was previously listed for sale on Trulia. The listing may have been withdrawn, or the property may have sold but Trulia has not received a record of the sale and details of the transaction from available public records. ... more

suggest you talk to your banker. Each bank has a estimated value which they use to determine the value. These proprietary estimators are used to see if you are eligible.

Hi Mommy2:

I'm not exactly clear on what you are asking, but if you are asking about the elementary and middle schools for a certain property, you should start your research with this website from the Sunnyvale School District: http://www.schvision.com/schoolfinder3/sunnyvalesd/Default.aspx

But be sure to also call the schools to clarify and confirm information, because it is not clear when these sites are updated.

Further, school districts are "re-zoned" once in a while. I do not know how this works for each district, you may want to contact a school district (especially the school district you are hoping your children want to attend) to find out more information about this.

I hope I have answered your question. Please feel free to ask again, if I have not.

Good luck,


Huey Nguyen

Right now this house is in the Homestead High attendance zone. In this part of Sunnyvale, along W. Remington Drive, the dividing line between Homestead High (API 873) and Fremont High (API 767) is Hollenbeck Ave. Schools with higher API are in higher demand. ... more

I am not able to answer you question about that space rent for this home. This home is a lot model and can be built and placed in any of the parks. The space rents vary between homes and parks. If you would like help with designing a brand new one I can certainly help you with that or any other questions. You can contact me at (408) 734-0336.

You really should start with the park manager. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rental park


Be sure to have it thoroughly inspected by an experienced MH inspector and not just any home inspector as there are several nuances with MHs that you don't have in a conventional site-built home and most home inspectors not familiar with these nuances will not even know what to look for.

Make sure the inspector crawls under the home and thoroughly inspects each and every pier and pad assembly for rust, deterioration and decomposition if steel and for decomposition if concrete as homes close to the ocean can be severely impacted by salt.

They should also make sure the home is level by checking all the doors and windows to make sure that they are not swinging or sticking and that all the strike plates on the doors are properly aligned and the doors close soundly.

The inspector should also inspect the steel mainframe for rust and decomposition as well. I can't tell you how many mainframes we've had to repair that were suffering and in some cases even failing from rust and deterioration related issues.

Be sure and have the inspector check for rips and tears in the vapor barrier under the floor. If there are openings in this membrane it could allow the insulation under the floor to become compromised and even fall on the ground.

Openings in the vapor barrier are also a great place for rodents and cats to habitate and reproduce. We've eradicated countless critters from these cavities over the years and it's not a very pleasant experience.

Finally and very importantly make sure the home has a California State Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) certified earthquake resistant bracing system (ERBS) as most areas in California are classified as a Zone 4 earthquake area which holds a high probability of risk for a seismic event..

Sunnyvale is fast becoming the "go to" community in silicon valley. I lived/rented in Sunnyvale over 20 years ago, when the owner offered the home for sale for 225,000 we declined, it's now worth 850,000 easily, even though it was just a 2/1, the location of the property is key to it's value, whether it's a town home or single family. ... more

Robert Lei answered:
In general, a good time to trade UP is when prices are DOWN because:
1. The delta between the price you sell your old home and the price of the more expensive home you hope to buy is at a low point in terms of absolute dolars if both homes are down by similar percentage.
2. Capital gains on the property you SELL is low.
3. You establish a lower property tax assessment baseline on the property you BUY.

Hi Anoo

It will cost about $15k to demolish existing structure with permit and haul away debris.
About 9 to 12 months to plan and build. And about $150 to $200 a square foot to build.
Let me know if I can help.


Good luck.

Robert Lei answered:
Sunnyvale 94087 is a great area...then again, I'm biased because that's my area :-).

The price range for homes in 94087 with Cupertino schools with 1300-1700 sqft (min 3/2) in the past 6 months has been from a low of $775,000 to a high of $1,078,000.

The lower price range tends to be homes in the Nimitz / Stocklmeir Elementary with Fremont High School. The higher price range tends to be home in the West Valley Elementary with Homestead High School.

The difference in prices is due to Homestead High School being ranked far ahead of Fremont High School.

Grace Hanamoto answered:
Hello Joe and thanks for your question and post.

First, I agree with both Dave and Ali that the homes in the 94085 zip code have not fared well during this economic downturn. Many of the issues that Ali noted--the streets, the schools and the demographics in the area--have all contributed to less return on housing dollars. Specifically, the problem I see in this area is the poor performance of the schools in this area. Sunnyvale housing prices are largely influenced by school districts and school performance. As a result of the local problems, the money that might have been made if the home was sold in March and April 2008 may have evaporated with this adverse economy.

Before you allow yourself to shelve any possibility of moving up in this down economy, you should speak with a qualified mortgage broker about available loan plans. Although credit is certainly tighter than in the past, with TARP money now being made available to buyers through banks such as Wells Fargo AND home prices in 94087 and good sections of 94086 still lower than in previous years, there may still be an opportunity to sell your current home and move up. The only way you'll really know your options, however, is to start with a mortgage broker to learn what programs you may qualify.

If it does not make sense to sell, then a good Realtor and mortgage broker will tell you this. Speak to a few Realtors to obtain their help in planning or proposing a course of action for you and your home.

Good luck and happy house hunting!!

I have to agree with Dave Blockhus on this one. Even middle aged people have difficulty climbing level after level of stairs. So your target market will be young professional people, without young children, a narrow audience indeed. ... more
