FYI, Stated Income loans are currently on hold but there are either 12 months or 24 months bank statement programs that you may qualify for?

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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and consider. Here are some links to study about me as well as web reference links to many loan programs...

Hello Andre, the purchase in Westlake Village start from 259k for 2bd 1ba condo as the inventory is quite low currently which is as low as $1,300 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score @259k.

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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy and to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Deborah Garvin answered:
Over and above the issue/non-issues related to your specific property is the fact that very few lenders provide financing for manufactured homes. Your property does seem to fit the basic criteria (owner occupied, permanent foundation, owned land, built after June 15, 1976); but, I am contacted daily by consumers who are not able to find a lender who will finance a manufactured home.

As a result, many consumers and agents tend to avoid considering manufactured housing as an option and focus solely on stick built properties. This, in turn, puts sellers in the situation of hoping a cash offer comes their way.

There are alternatives...for both sellers and buyers. One thing you and your agent can do is get clarification to other agents and/or potential consumers about the available financing options for your property. Admittedly, there are few lenders who work with manufactured housing; however, we are here and willing to assist.

All my best,

Deborah

Hi Annie, if you haven't talked with a mortgage professional about the benfits of buying vs. renting, feel free to give me a call and see how easy it can be to get into a place of your own instead of paying someone else's mortgage. Even if you have rented already, you should talk with someone who will help you layout a game plan towards homeownership.

So why don't you want to have the agent who did the work get paid? I would use the agent to write the offer to the bank. If you don't like that agent, you should use some agent. Banks are ruthless to deal with. Get an agent. I would say use the one who did the work. It is right thing to do. ... more

David Chiles answered:
Thank you for your question about Foreclosure Listings. Having cash is the first step in finding the right foreclosure. There are many more steps you have to take and the process requires more time than purchasing a traditional home.

My website provides an in depth explanation of the foreclosure process. There is no better explanation. I explained the process to callers in a call center environment. I know what I am talking about. Read the entire page and you will get a feel for the process.

To answer your question directly, it will take about six months with the right agent because you have cash. Many banks have streamlined their processes.

No you do not have to remove the contingencies. I The sellers were given a copy, either they lost them or they are hiding something.
Do not release the contingencies until the homeowners association ia approved by your lender. Otherswise the deal could go south, and you will have fight like mad to get your deposit back. Call your lender and make sure they do not wait until the last minute to order the Condo cert. as most of the lenders out there so often do.
If the association does not get approved, the loan will not go through. It is clear you do not want to wait to the last minute to find out this information.

this is a ridiculous breach of ethics. Agents like this should be banned from practicing real estate for a period of time, never mind being slapped on the hand with a fine.

Hi Venakt! Guess I haven't been on Trulia for awhile! The lender below was correct, if you haven't already done so, you MUST be pre-aproved before making an offer. The really good properties tend to sell quickly, and if you aren't pre-approved and ready to go, you may miss the perfect home!

I have lived and worked out here in the Conejo Valley (which consists of the communities of Westlake, Agoura, Oak Park, Thousand Oaks, and Newbury Park) for ovetr 20 years, and would be glad to help you out, if you haven't already found your home. (And if you haven't it is out there- it just hasn't come up yet!) You can also do a property search on my website, www.CarolLee4Homes.com, and get a feel for the area, and for how I work.

Best of luck, and welcome home!

Hello!
Just spotted your question.
Hope you move has been successful!
As the Daddy of eleven and nine year old girls, I can say you cannot go wrong with Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, or Oak Park. Thousand Oaks is also wonderful, and most important, the schools in the Conejo Valley are second to none.
I am sure by now your move is well under way, but if I can be of any help, please so not hesitate to contact me (even if you have already purchased a home, I always here to help in any way I can).

From your questions, I gather that you are not Chad or Shelby Everett and just looking for their address. Your questions make me wonder why you are asking online for their home address. It's concerning and I hope that you are not stalking them. Your questions are so vague. Why are you looking for their home address and who are you? ... more

There is a great 2+1 on Kirkford Way in Westalke Village renting for $1,695. Does this work with your price range? Feel free to fill out a tenant request form on AcesRentals.com if you are still in the market, won't cost you a thing.

Thank you,

Jorge
