Hi Stephanie - the biggest variable is how much you want to spend and what is affordable to you. We sold in Orange County (coastal) for years and it is a great area for appreciation. Some other areas in Northern Cal - Marin, bay area, etc...are also fantastic. Biggest factors are your goals in buying in any place, are you going to live there or is this an investment property, and how much to spend. Hope this helps. Cheers! ... more

Hassan, since the zip codes stretch far it's hard to pin-point exact locations just by zip codes but depending on what style property you are looking for, most ocean access homes are located east of Interstate 95 and more country club locations and gated type communites would be located west of 95 which would be more dry-lot properties or lakefront. ... more

Jim Fishinger answered:
Great question, but no easy answer. Current price increases are exacerbated by extremely low inventory forcing almost auction like bidding. If inventory begins to grow that should slow. Interest rates will have a huge impact. I would think another 10% not out of the question with stability on rates and an easing of the current crunch on inventory. ... more

Your reasoning sounds valid. I would just call your Buyer's Broker (I hope you were represented by one ~ because this is the kind of thing we can handle for you!). They will work with the on-site sales representative and have them look into it for you. Best of luck in your new home. ... more

Hi Sara

If the rules say only 2 occupants and you intend on having more than that while you are in that association, the association can make you leave especially if you do not have prior approval.

If you would like some help in finding a home I would be more than happy to help.

In NY its's anybody's house until contracts are fully executed between buyer and seller. The only other way to protect yourself is to have a sales binder in place which actually acts as a contract when an offer is accepted. Not many people use these in NY.

Terry Farnsworth answered:

Although a lot of homebuyers choose to ignore this information - you would be well served by contacting a licensed real estate professional who can check on properties before you go out to visit them. Houses you find online through the various websites may be A. already under contract/sold, or B. a scam altogether. An agent will be able to search properties directly in real time on the Multiple Listing Service.

If you are just surfing the internet, and racing out to look at addresses you find on various websites on your own - you are going to become extremely frustrated.

Hope this helps!

Hi there msowena,

Thanks for this question. Unfortunately it hasn't received many answers, probably due to being posted into "All Locations" which can fill up pretty quickly, leading questions to sometimes be missed.

However, because your question is more about tax liability, I would recommend that you contact an accountant to find answers here. Real Estate agents can be prohibited from providing tax advice.

Good luck with your search,

Richard Brody answered:
You should ask yourself a few questions first. How far, time wise, are you willing to commute? How much of a downpayment can you put down? How is your credit?

There are several lovely communities in Long Island, as well as in Queens, that would have some homes in or near your price range. With today's low mortgage rates, you can get much more for your monthly payment, than in the past. Real estate taxes must also be a consideration, because that will have a bearing on your monthly payment, as well.

In terms of school systems, there are many excellent school systems. There are ratings and descriptions of most of them online.

Think about accessability to mass transit, convenience and cost of commuting, as well. A professional realtor could be of great assistance.
