Broche answered:
Yes, if your rent is due on the 1st day, then pay on the first. Should the terms of the agreement allow for late fees then pay the late fee at the same time. The landlord would be able to demand full payment of both. Partial payments would typically be followed with another notice. Review the terms of your agreement. There are no mandatory grace periods unless specified within the terms of when rent is due and what late fees are incurred if paying late. ... more

My company doesn't require the buyer to sign a restrictive buyer's rep agreement; many do. The terms of the agreement are negotiable. You can keep the term short if you like (and the agent agrees) so you have time to decide if you like her. Be sure you understand the terms of the 'out clause' so that you can fire her if necessary. Your best best would be to hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent, not a regular buyer's agent. EBAs represent homebuyers only so there is no conflict of interest to jeopardize your negotiating position. Visit for a referral.

Stephanie Hart answered:
Unfortunately the HOA Cert is often received somewhat late in the sales transaction. This is a problem more and more as of late, as people tend to litigate more frequently now than they did when I first started (15 years ago),. Most escrow companies order those docs (cert, etc) from an online system now and they are emailed and passed on to the lender. We hit this problem last year with a buyer of ours and thank goodness our buyer was with a mortgage broker that was able to switch lenders. You are correct that some will still finance with pending litigation. It is much easier if you know about the issues, at the onset. Escrow is a neutral 3rd party. Information that is received is passed along to both sides. Hope this worked out for you in the end. ... more

They're all incredibly inexpensive in Torrance. I pay $800/mo for a 450sqft studio on block from the ocean in Long Beach that accepts cats. Yet I can't seem to find that in Torrance for anything less than $1,300! It sucks :( ... more

Yes it is real, but you better know what you are doing. For example most people who are willing to do it, only are willing to do so because they owe more on them than they are worth. So that is the price you are going to get? That is right, most people who go into those do not do well.

The good news is that there are so many low down payment programs, where an appraisal is done and you have agents involved so that you do not get the short end of the stick.

Give me a call and see what you can buy.

1. Mobile homes go down in value, never up. They are always a depreciating asset.!!!
2. You are at the mercy of the park owners, they may raise your rent whenever they want, by however much they want, and there is nothing you can do about it. See you are stuck there with a mobile home that is not mobile at all, you cannot get up and move if you do not like it. They get to make rules, tell you who you can sell to and often times even block your sell when you go to sell.
3.If you can afford a mobile home you can afford a condo.
a. Condos go up in value as a general rule. You can take out equity out as you go.
b. You are not under the strict ownership, you do have an association but it is much easier to deal with, and they cannot tell you who you can sell to or block your sell when it comes time to do so. Also you can always go to the association meetings on a condo and have a say. On a mobile home they own it, it is their way or the highway.

Call me at 714-968-2500, we can go over the numbers, I can show you that you can buy a condo with:
a. Less money down
b. Worse credit
c. With a lower monthly payment.

There is only one advantage of a mobile home that is there are no adjoining walls. But you will find when there are storms, that you will quickly realize just how flimsy a mobile home is.
If you buy a mobile home you will end up with nothing to show for it accept for a loss. If you buy a condo it will go up in value eventually, you will build equity; have more freedom, more money, less stress. When you sell it you will make money, if you hold it long enough, no matter what. The longer you own a mobile home the more money you lose, no matter what.
