This is one of Fremont's more affordable communities however the homes and the neighborhood can have its challenges. I would suggest you call the Fremont Police Non-Emergency number and ask them for the crime report for this area and then decide if that is a neighborhood for you and your family. I am not saying it's bad and I am not saying it's good that is something only you can decide after doing your research.
As for the Gentry Homes (some are attached) are made of cinder block walls and some have flat roofs which has caused issues. If the owners don't care for these flat roofs they leak and have caused mold in some of the homes I have seen over the last 5 years however some are totally taken care of and look great so there is always something for everyone in this neighborhood. A number of these homes are right along the 880 freeway so you have noise issues too so in order to make a good buying decision you need to visit homes in this area and do your homework.
Should you have any further questions or concerns please don't hesitate to email or call

Yes Meg, we can all see what we refer to as the CDOM or Combined Days on Market - there is a bit of a way around it - but buyers will see that the house has been on the market a while. Having a Very Good Agent may make all the difference - especially being able to answer a Buyers Objection and possible negative thoughts on the CDOM.

Happy to help further if you's like to chat,

Kind regards,

Hello Stephen,

There are programs here in the US for Canadian Investors. A lender I frequently work with has a 20% down program for Canadians to buy investment properties. Also, I grew up in Vancouver and have a contact there in the lending industry that also works with investors if they choose to refinance up there and then use Cash to purchase down here.

Feel free to reach out by email or phone and I would be glad to pass along the names of these lenders.

If it was dangling on a string from a nail I would agree with you, but it is not. It is in a secure lockbox and many register the users and when they opened it so only a Realtor is going to open it and use it. ... more

The biggest disadvantage is the amount of time you will have to wait for an approval of your sales contract by the mortgage holder. This could take a few months for a decision to be made. At the end, the decision could be that they agree to release the mortgage lien for the agreed sale amount or they could counter with their own figure, in which case one of the parties must come up with the difference to get the lien released. If you're going to go this route you want to make sure you use a professional agent to knows what to watch out for and to watch out for your best interest.

Your Realtor can give you this info.

You absolutely want to find a Realtor to assist you...otherwise you will miss the very best deals. Some asset managers will accept an offer the first day it is listed so you need an attentive Realtor.

All the best,

Sorry I don't know Firserv and the article wasn't much help. However, First remember all real estate is local and general stats don't always reflect the local market. That said I don't have a crystal ball, but with reduced inventory, increasing buyer interest and an improving economy I don't agree with that sentiment. We have had the busiest summer in a number of years (even over last year's which was terifically up). If the econony bottoms no one is safe; but locally 4-5 builders have reentered the market, which they have been out of for a number of years. I have a great track record and would enjoy sitting/talking with you more on this subject. Call KathyBC 800-448-3411 ext 601. (8/23) ... more

Tania Patch answered:
Yes, there are many seller's waiting until after Labor Day to list their properties. However, at that time there are also gong to be more buyers and it will be more competitive. Right now is a good time to take advantage of listings that have been sitting, not getting as many viewings simply because so many buyers are away on vacation. ... more

Try contacting a local realtor directly (NOT through Trulia). Any agent is going to have access to your local MLS system, which has the most up to date listings. Trulia isn't the best source. Many time listings are under contract, or sold weeks ago. ... more

What do YOU do for a living?
Can we work a deal where you do your work, and I get half of YOUR pay?
Why do you think you should be entitled to half of my pay?

I don't do rentals, but since Mountlake Terrace is the area I specialize in, I thought I could answer a few questions. I think I know which condo you live in since I think you are referring to the Evergreen Awards. The rent will depend on many factors and I think there have been a few rentals where you live. When to move? Whenever you are ready. There doesn't seem to be better time of the year anymore. If you need a broker, I am available. ... more
