Typically you're looking at 20% down for investment property and with 25% you'll get an even better rate. Talking with a lender is a good idea to get all of your options.
What neighborhoods in Calabasas will you be interested in? How old are your kids? Schools here are excellent. If you'd like more info on the different neighborhoods or the schools, we're happy to help.

Real Estate Agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a Real Estate Agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a Real Estate Agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:

Reasons Why A Real Estate Agent Cannot Comment

These links should be able to provide some of the answers you are seeking.

Scott Godzyk answered:
It is not difficult but does require you to learn and understand how the auction works. Find out of the bidder is responsible for any back taxes, HOA fees or liens? Find out if the home is occupied and if the high bidder will have to evict the occupant. You then need to assess what the home is worth and deduct for liens, evictions and the risk of not seeing what damage could exist in the interior ... more

If you are looking for a website that offers up to date foreclosure listings, I would like to recommend This is a site that requires membership but you can peruse through the listings in your market area first before signing up.

Our database contains over two million foreclosure homes, including bank foreclosures, government foreclosures like VA homes and HUD homes, distressed properties and commercial properties that are for sale all across the nation. All of the listings have had any outstanding liens eliminated and the title is free and clear. We also update our extensive collection of listings every day.

I did a quick search of distressed listings in and around Los Angeles and there are 2,498! Have fun shopping!

Hi Sharon,

I just did a quick check. The average Sold Price today is $127.00, There are 2 or 3 Pending sales and nothing Active for sale.

You may have heard that the market has changed direction for the better...prices are going up, first time in over 5 years. Offers are written the same day the home is listed, all across the US.

If your interested in closed properties in this development, I could send you emails the day homes close.

Thanks for your inquiry!

Commissions are always negotiable, but keep in mind that agents cannot reduce their commission rate without their broker's permission.

And I would add that hiring an agent based solely on their rate is not the best way to find excellence. ... more

Dean Gupta CRS answered:
Yes there few things can be in your favor. First live in the building yourself--so it is owner occupied. 2) then if you can show the Rental leases from 2 or three unit, then 60-70% of that income can be used towards your income and your qualifying could go up. But main thing here could be your credit scores. You may also qualify for city programs, down payment help too. There are 100's of programs are there and some fine prints are there. These rules and conditions keep changing virtually every month. So you have to work with a lender that you can trust. I can recommend you but you will have to call me. I probably can not give contact info in these write ups. Good luck. ... more

Not really, proof funds would be needed instead of loan approval. Most of the paperwork is on the seller side.

Homes located in higher ranking school districts are higher than those not located in higher ranking school districts.

Home values are determined by their location. A home right across the street from a school may cost less due to traffic, noise, lighting, etc. ... more

Haig Istamboulian answered:

This property is currently NOT on the market. According to the public records it went to Sheriff Sale in September of 2011. For some reason the house has not been placed on the market. It is well past the 6 month redemption period so there must be an issue with the home that is keeping the bank from placing it on the market.

Do you live near the home? Is anyone living in the house? Sometimes if the previous owner has NOT left, the bank has to legally evict them, so that also could be preventing the home from being placed on the market.

I hope this helps a little.

Thank you,
