Hi Lincolli7,
The best way to find out about mortgage payments, is to visit a lender and see if you qualify for that amount. If you don't happen to have a lender you could go to, I will gladly send you referrals to some really good mortgage lenders in SOCAL close to your area.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns involving real estate or if you would like the referral list to lenders like I mentioned before.
The best of luck to you!

The foliage over the fence is considered yours... as would be the debris. If you decide to trim, legally dispose of the trimmings.

Also, you may want an opinion from your attorney just in case there is some local ordinance that is to the contrary.

Good Luck!

Tristam put together a great list here. The last point is the most important one. Never send money until you have verified that they are in fact a real landlord or property manager. This can be done by meeting them in person or by doing a video call and google searching them. If you are not able to find a linkedin profile or facebook profile or anything about them on the internet and they will not meet you in person or via google hangout or skype then it is most definitely a scam. Flag the listing and move on with your property search.

Regarding sharing your private information there are sites today that allow tenants to share their pertinent renter information without revealing sensitive information. Sites like allow tenants to fill out a rental resume that includes all the information that landlords use to make a tenant selection decision without including your birthdate, social security number, address, or any account numbers. When a tenant inquires for one of my properties and provides me with a link to their tenantopia rental resume it makes my decision much easier and allows me to speed up my verification process and have the tenant moved in almost immediately after they view the property. Another great part is that I never have to have any of the tenant's private information in my possession.

The area you described is Lake Balboa city( W of 405 and S of Saticoy, N of Victory), . It is a nice smaller community. There is a link on the boundaries of LB:
I think, it is nice and relatively safe. Most of houses are owner occupied. The best part about this location: parks. What other city offers this much park ground?! Golf fields, tennis, biking and running trails, nice lake, Japanese Gardens, etc, etc, etc. Lake Balboa is a hidden gem of Valley:)

It used to be several buildings, including a United Rentals facility. Looks like they're combining lots. Maybe another car dealership?

Ben Vorspan answered:
This question was asked a while back, and now we see that demand remained high for quite some time -- well into the summer.

We're finding that prices have stabilized and demand is starting to level off, as supply begins to increase.

The expectation is that prices will remain roughly where they are, hopefully interest rates will also remain low, and as we get into spring of 2014, prices will once again rise.

If you're thinking about buying, do it this winter! Prices will only rise once we get into 2014.

tallentrea answered:

You are allowed to request that information on the rental application. Also, you may request to verify the documents. I'm assuming that someone with nothing to hide and who wants to rent will permit
you to review the documents. However, I would not keep copies of the documents on file. This may be a question for a landlord/tenant attorney.
