You need to know if you can qualify, unless you have a Residential Mortgage Credit Report (RMCR) you do not have a true reading of your credit.

Get an updated report prior to looking at houses. Below is a link to what an RMCR includes.

Best of Luck,

My experience is small pets not so bad but large or multiple pets will be difficult. If you are willing to pay a hefty pet deposit, sometimes landlords will say ok. Good luck!

I would talk with your bank to see if you qualify because a VA 100% financing loan might be an option for you.

You would go to a lender who can do that for you. There is more to the equation than income. Debts, history, and credit play into the answer and no one here could tell you.

According to the Associated Press ~ In stark contrast to this time last year, the housing market is chugging into 2013 with a head of steam.

Home-listing prices were up 5.1% nationally in December on a year-over-year basis, according to data released Thursday by real-estate listings and data company Trulia. Out of the 100 major metro markets covered by the report, 82 of them saw year-over-year gains. At the end of 2011, asking prices had fallen 4.3%, and only 12 markets had posted positive price changes.

“Prices are going into 2013 with strong tailwinds,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist for Trulia. He cites a general strengthening of the job market, which in turn means more families able to cover a sizeable down payment. An increase in household formation, which is also the product of improving job prospects, and home construction could further bolster demand.

Mr. Kolko notes that the sharpest tightening of inventory is taking place in Western states. Four of the top 10 cities to see the largest asking price recovery were in California, including Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento and Fresno.

Las Vegas, which was hit hard after the bubble burst, came in at the top of the list with a 16.3% year-over-year listing price increase. In the same period in 2011, prices dropped 11.2%.

To be sure, even among the markets with major gains, some are better positioned for a sustained housing recovery than others.

While Las Vegas may have seen the largest asking price turnaround, it remains far below pre-bust levels. The problem, Mr. Kolko says, is that the market remains unstable, with high vacancy rates, lingering foreclosures and subpar job growth.

On the other hand, metros like Seattle, which came in second on the list of cities with the highest asking-price recovery, are on a smoother path to growth because of their strong economic fundamentals, he said.

Meanwhile, rents rose nationally 5.2% in the same period. In 17 of the 25 biggest rental markets, home prices are rising faster than rents, according to Trulia. Whereas ownership was typically more affordable than renting in most markets in recent years, as sales demand rises, that edge is becoming less apparent, Mr. Kolko said.

Kira no one has a crystal ball to predict the future. It is all speculation. So far things are improving in the economy and in the real estate market, prices are increasing due to high demand and low inventory. If you don't have to wait two more years, I would strongly advise to jump in with both feet now while prices and interest rates are still very affordable.

Yes these are areas I would recommend highly to buyers with families. The schools are rated high and well regarded by local residents. I have worked with many buyers and sellers in this general area known as Waterford/Avalon area. There is a huge shopping district with hundreds of stores, many restaurants, and a large theatre. Please contact me for more details about the schools or anything else.

Zillow is not a very reliable website to view for homeowners. The best way to see what your home is currently worth is to have a Comparative Market Analysis completed. I am happy to provide that to you. It won't cost you a cent and can be invaluable. If you want to send me your address and email I will work on it for you.

Well, it really matters what part of LA you are looking at. In the valley, in Granada Hills (what I like to call the Beverly Hills of the Valley), you can find a nice 5 bedroom house, large with a pool for around $500k. Average price of homes in the valley are well below $400k total. Most of these homes are built in the 80s and 90s, but some of the higher end homes are built after the 94 earthquake so you have more modern choices. Most people buying above $700k are putting large amounts in down payment, that's why they can afford home loans.

If you want to speak with a qualified loan officer about your loan needs, I can recommend Bridgette at WestCom Lending (818) 335-0283 /

All in all, location is key in finding a home that is for you. Maybe try searching a slight further commute to work to have the luxury home you want. Any questions, feel free to contact me.
