When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department 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.

You know hard to answer your question not knowing your financial situation, other responsibilities you have know or will have in the future, are yu thinking to stay in the home for many more years to come? Do you have enough equity in your home, your age, i.e. how far from retirement are you ----
so many things to consider, in general though if your home needs work, and you have a solid employment, a home equity loan is a good solution as you only use what you need.....

Sit together not only with a lender/or banker, but also with a local Realtor, because you DO NOT WANT TO UPGRADE TOO MUCH, i.e. the Realtor will help you decide what to do and what not to do and that
will determine the amount you want to borrow.

Good Luck, if you need the recommendation of a Realtor let me know and feel free to contact me anytime ....

Actually, I am a licensed Broker who moved to Yuma with my Significant Other last May and we did move to the Foothills and enjoy the area. We had taken a lease for 6 months but wanted to stay on once we knew the area. So there are people, I think that would lease for 6 months and roll over for another 6 months or more and then there are the Bernie's in the world who just wanted a 12 month lease right up front, and the Border Patrol persons that haven't bought yet but like being in the foothills, closer to the check point. Then there are the YPG workers that enjoy living in the Foothills. Seems to be many groups would take a 12 month lease. ... more

Spirit Messingham answered:
More importantly, when is it the best time for YOU to buy? Interest rates are rising, and if you are pre-approved, I would start looking now. If you are not pre-approved, please talk with a local lender. Then speak with a local agent or local agent...


Oh wait, you are an agent. Are you asking others or do you really not know when a good time is to buy a home? It depends on the client, what they have going on just as much as the local housing market, rates, and etc.

FYI, anyone who claims to know for a fact we are "at the bottom of the bubble" wants something, cause there is no way to know for sure, until we have started climbing up. Period.

I think this also depends on the market you are selling. I am in Marin, CA, where there are a lot of environmentalists (or at least thinking towards - why would anybody want to spend that kind of money to buy in Marin if not for the clean air, green open space, surrounding bay/ocean, preserved marsh land, low key, blend into environment architect etc),? There is a price to pay, along with that desirable living standard, it comes with a price.

In Novato, we have a brand new small development with 'affordable' housing where they built 8 all green town homes, and after initial stall during the summer, they are either sold or under contract.

We also have a 19 luxury home subdivision listed by my office; which are all Green Homes, sales were slow towards the end of year, but pace has picked up.,

Since this is Marin, even though we are the least expensive town, the price range or the first group is around $500K and the luxury homes run from $1,179K to $1.5M. Great homes sits on marsh land.

(BTW, even with that, my town, Novato, was just voted 'Best Affordable Town' by Business Week' http://www.marinij.com/marin/ci_8040922?source=email)

So, I think it depends on the local market and mindset. dCO/Green is gaining momentum in Marin right now.

Let me know if you want more information about those Green builers, Green Housing. .

Bill, is there a reason you've asked so many questions on your first day here? It seems some of the topics would make more sense for a format such as RealTalk. There's no ranking system there, but at least then it doesn't look like you're asking just to ask just as you'll find some folks answer just to answer. ... more
