Derek Jones answered:
You have quite a few options under $300k. What is it you are looking for in a home and neighborhood? Have you looked in North Oak park, land park, tahoe park?

No matter where you decide to live I'd suggest driving by the location during different days and different times of the day. Like drive by around 8-10pm on a friday/saturday night and mornings or mid-day. As far as resale value that's pretty much a guess as no one can really tell the future. ... more

Jason Walter answered:
First, review the contract you have with the listing agent in order to determine what kind of listing you have (Exclusive Agency, Exclusive Right to Sell, Open, etc.). This will give you insight on whether or not you can get out of the contract. Here is a helpful article about the various types of listing agreements:

Second, express your concerns with your Realtor if you haven't done so already. Most Realtors want their clients to be happy and should be accommodating if you feel their services have been inadequate.

Third, call their broker to try to resolve the issue, if necessary.

Hope that helps!

You will need the down payment to actually get a deal closed, so you should wait until you have it.

I, along with many other residents in the community have been asking the City to address the homeless traffic in the area! we have finally got their support! they are committed to working on a solution that will help address the issue and hopefully redirect the people traffic! the BCC is a center that has been providing minimal services to the homeless who show up every morning and just hang out! The city are currently working on a land switch deal to help move the BCC to a non residential area, this will be a huge change in demographics for us in the neighborhood and hopefully better services the needs of the homeless!

! and yes I say come on over to west sac lots of great things happening her,

Marty Swingle answered:
In almost all cases, purchasing a mobile home will be cheaper than purchasing a single family home. You do have space rent to consider and that will vary depending on which mobile home park the home is located in.

One big difference between the two is that the value of the mobile home will decrease over time and a single family home can increase, especially now, as we recover from the housing correction.

The bid deadline for 804 Kegle is Sunday night, September 12th at midnight. HUD will look at owner occupant bids only at that time. If there there is no owner occupant winning bidder at that time it will then be open to investor bidders as well as owner occupants on the 13th. ... more

Max Boyko answered:
The levees in West Sacramento I believe to be higher and stronger than the other side, so if the water levels rise there is plenty of space for it to go elsewhere. However since we are somewhat of an island and surrounded by water it's always safer to obtain flood insurance, although it is not required. ... more

Sacramento: That particular address does not show up in tax record search for Allan Avenue in West Sac.
There are four properties on Allan Ave. in the tax records that do not have a numbered address. It could be one of these, particularly if it is a vacant lot.

Vacant lots often are not assigned number addresses until they are built upon.

Vicky Chrisner answered:
Cindi - forget for a minute about the house. Why do you have bad credit? Is it because you've not learned to be fiscally responsible and pay your bills on time? Are you having trouble budgeting? Are you too deep in dept? Whatever it is, clean up your credit; THEN think of buying. Even if you get someone to finance you, you'll be the next foreclosure if you don't get the "I wants" under control enough to deal with the "I need to's" ... more
