Hello Cassandra, why are you only looking for individual owners? Do you have issues that you are concerned about? You did not mention what maximum rent or minimum number of bedrooms and if you are looking for a condo, townhome or single family residence?

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 and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

The rentals in Tustin start from $1,325 a month for a studio apt and up. The purchase in Tustin start from 264k for 1bd 1ba condo, from 289k for 2bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from 599k for 3bd 2ba home.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Hi,

Your local agent can set up an automated search that filters fixer upper properties. I have one set up for the Bay Area.
Kind regards,

YES! I work with International Home Buyers and Foreign Investors to purchase property here in the US with a mortgage loan. There are special very well established International and USA banks that handle these loans. I have have worked with International second home buyers, embassies and ambassadors, diplomats, and parents of foreign students to purchase properties and many of them are getting mortgages to purchase the properties. You may contact me directly if you would like more information and the right persons to contact at the 3 main banks that I have found most easy to work, helpful and ready to lend.

I look forward to assisting you,

Just wondering why you want only a one bedroom for a family of 4?
There are many affordable 2 bedroom 1 1/2 to two baths available that are within fair market price point. I would check privately owned units. Even less than many large cooperation owned apts. Your best bet is to check a affordable housing lists. Or cheap rents.com. Public housing.com. I just found my son a 1 bedroom one bath . He's disabled . Just received a low income voucher. On my search I found many privately owned apts that were two bedroom two bath much less expensive,,, but did nor accept my sons affordable housing voucher. As a land lord I myself would not rent a one bedroom to a family of 4. It's inevitable that there will be undue or possible more wear and tear on the unit. Noise being in such small quarters . Other tenants tend to complain. And 2 to a bedroom excluding an infant is just a more acceptable living situation. Having one closet for 4 people. One bathroom. That's a tough one but not impossible. Large complexes are mostly owned by publicly traided cooperations. I promise they won't lower the standards of acceptable living space. But private renters often due. As long as you are not on voucher or living off state aid. ... more

Hello-
They can accept another offer, and open an escrow. HOWEVER, they cannot CLOSE escrow until your issue is resolved. Your agent should be getting his/her broker involved, and getting this matter settled for you.

There's the Platinum Program, which is a 3% down payment grant. There's also the Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC), which offers a first time buyer a discount on the mortgage interest paid on the loan.

Both programs are administered through the National Homebuyer's Fund. If your income does not exceed the program limits, either one or both may be good options for you. You'll want to make sure the MCC has funds available at the time of your purchase. You may be able to reserve funds.

Nicholas S Nelson answered:
Prequalification are borrower specific, not state specific. If looking in a different state you do need to let lender know if it will be primary residence, second home or investment property. Also, find out if the lender does lend in the other state. Some lenders only have a footprint in certain states and do not lend outside of these states.

I have the ability to lend in all 50 states. If you would like more information on my programs and a free preapproval, please contact me at the below phone or email.

Good Luck,

Jill Murty answered:
If you'd like to buy a foreclosure at the courthouse steps, you'll need cash (cashier's checks) and you'll be buying the property without having the opportunity to see the inside and conduct inspections.

A short sale property is a pre-foreclosure listed for sale with a Realtor. The price at which a short sale will sell is subject to bank approval. The buyer may be asked to pay off back HOA dues, liens, etc., if any.

An REO is a bank owned property that failed to sell at auction and is now listed with a Realtor.

You can almost always obtain financing on a short sale or REO properties.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/
