Megan -

Most developments in the area built in the last 20-years use a “tub-shower” combo to save money on the construction costs. If you need a walk in (no tub) shower, send me your contact info and I’ll check with my leasing team for complexes that offer that amenity.

Hi Dat,

I spoke to your daughter Christine on the phone and she gave me an incorrect email address that did not work when I tried to send her a message. Please have her give me a call back at (310) 717-1321 anytime so we can get this sorted out!

Here's the best way to tell if a property is still available. Log into a system that is more local to your search like:
This will give you access to properties listed in Tustin immediately, give you the availability status and is tied directly to the local MLS. ... more

Maryann Hardwick answered:
Requirements for properties to be FHA approved seem to change daily. As of today this complex is showing that it is approved until June 28, 2013. The unit itself from the pictures and discription appears to be in good condition (other requirements you have to have for FHA loans, inspections, appraisal) when you get approved for a FHA loan your loan officer should explain these requirements to you. The listing agent states that this unit will be available for showing as of Wed 9/12. If you are not working with an agent and would like to set an appointment to see this one, let me know if I can help. ... more

Hi L Nichols

Open house is up to the agent and seller. There may not be any open houses or they may have already had one.
Not all homes for sale have an open house especially in this market when something comes on the market thy receive offers without being seen. The first few data to a week are they most busiest for viewing
Can I help you find a home? My information is below. Talk to you soon

Hi - This is a new home and I'd suggest you call and ask the Home Sales office staff. They typically have HOA dues that vary based on location or sub-community within the community. Good luck to you!

Oh, If you want a Realtor to represent you, make sure to take one with you the first time you visit.

Brian Wilson answered:
Hello Pilar,

Good advice below, start with getting your finances in order and talk with a lender to make sure you can get enough and the right financing to make your purchase. Find a Realtor here on Trulia or through a personal referral so you can get the guidance you need in this current real estate environment.
Also remove your personal information from your question. You will still get answers but hopefully not a lot of calls and emails from people who mean well but may overwhelm you with requests to help.

Good luck with your search,

Brian Wilson, Realtor

I'm glad you found this site and posted your request, you will get a number of responses to choose from so that's great.

If you want to get an inside scoop as to what lenders are looking at these day with regards to home financing and pre-approvals, you can visit my video blogs at for a ton of valuable information on various topics. Two I would recommend immediately for a home buyer are below: (3:28 min video on what lenders look for) (2:49 min video on important things to know during the loan process)

I hope these are helpful. Feel free to call me on my cell phone if you would like to make sure you are 100% pre-approved for the price range you are looking for. We also offer 99.5% financing right now which 3% of it is a 'grant' that does 'not' have to be paid back.... and you 'don't' have to be a first time home buyer either. Ask me about that when you call.

Talk to you soon.

Emily Knell answered:
You have gotten your answers as far as schools go. I also wanted to let you know a little more about the listing. The price has flopped around between $480-520K & it looks like there have been a couple of different buyers who have come & gone since about March. This isn't necessarily due to bad property condition, sometimes buyers, if not educated up front about the short sale process, get antsy after 30 days & just back out.

The listing agent is stating it is "approved at $480K", that's always a questionable remark. She's probably stating that it may have been approved at that price for a previous buyer. There are other factors in a short sale that don't have anything to do with the purchase price the bank will accept.

It looks to me like there's an equity loan 2nd on this property. The other 2 buyers may have backed out because they weren't keen on offering in a cash contribution of between 10-20% of the balance of that equity 2nd.

Depending on comparable sales & the price the bank would take & how much down payment you have, it could all still pencil out to being a killer deal.

Please email me directly if you'd like me to get answers regarding the nuts & bolts of THIS particular short sale. I know the right questions to ask.
