Hi Lauren,
Depends on where in Long Beach you're considering and the size. It's good to invest in real estate, best to invest in 2+2 units and with as little deferred maintenance as possible. Is that likely to happen for 100k or less? No. Why hold for 7 years specifically? ... more

There is no reasonable way for anyone here to answer a question like this, there is no set cost because it could be easy or it could be hard. You need to get a contractor to visit the site and give an estimate. I would contact several since some will probably not be able to do it. ... more

The buyer is the one who purchases the appraisal so in my opinion they are the only one that should receive it and decide who they want to see it. The seller does not have a right or need to see the appraisal. If it came in at purchase price or above to remove the contingency. ... more

You can purchase with cash!

Or you can purchase and finance with a larger downpayment (30-50% depending on your particular situation and property itself).

Hi Donny,

If you have a home inspection contingency and haven't removed it (in writing) then you can cancel contract if the seller/bank won't do the repairs you want done.

Scott Strang answered:
1) Find a professional buyer agent to help you
2) Find or have your agent find you the home
3) Make an offer
4) Seller accepts
5) Do home inspection
6) Package is submitted to the bank, offer , pre approval, sellers hardship letter, all seller financials (ask your agent about this )
Have agent stay in contact with the listing agent and or negotiator hired to follow up
7) Bank sends an independent agent out to do a BPO (broker price opinion)
8) The bank accepts, rejects or counters the offer. If accepted you must close in 30-45 days or less.
9) your financing bank does an appraisal
10) if all goes well......... you close or the property forecloses and all involved lose big time :)

There are more detailed steps this is just a basic over view ....a good buyers agent will guide you through all this stuff.

Not a stupid question! :) You might be able to negotiate a six month lease. Most rentals will not do less that that, but you never know... it doesn't hurt to ask.

Thanks!

Sona Gallatin answered:
you should have had your own representation.
why that seems like a huge negative to some I'll never know...its for your benefit. sellers agent is looking out for the seller, who"s looking out for you?
With that said, you could be waiting for a while, doesn't seem like they have approval yet, just conditions,
A negotiator is probably assigned but hold on here.....they change from time to time, you may be working with one person for a few months only to find that there was a change on their end.
It's all good but you need you "agent" to follow up and at the very least give you updates.
If the property is worth it, hang in there as short sales take a while but worth the wait.
Also make sure that once you have sellers lender approval, be on time with all of your stuff.
Good Luck:)

Hi jackievanka:

Mold is a health and safety issue. I would also suggest you start with speaking with your Landlord; however, I would do so AFTER reviewing the following document produced by the CA Dept. of Consumer Affairs.

Sona Gallatin answered:
Lease with option is very rare if at all. It's a sellers market and there a a shortage of inventory in most LA areas. The only time this option may be considered by a seller is if there's an abundance of inventory and properties are sitting on the market for a long time.
I recommend looking into a plan to save and be prepared to buy your own, don't have the down payment but have the credit...there are options in assistance programs for first time buyers.
But, if you're inquiring because your credit is an issue and your hoping to find a seller who'll take a chance and lease to you in hopes that you may be able to buy?
Research your proposed option thoroughly, there are risks for you and the homeowner.

Good luck:)

Shanna Rogers answered:
Hi Dave,

If all parties did not sign the extension and the closing date has passed, there is no longer a contract. Your Realtor should have made sure the extension was signed prior to the scheduled close of escrow. I would have your Realtor contact the listing agent or escrow company to get the cancellation of escrow paperwork so you can get your earnest money deposit back - if the bank is not going to extend your close of escrow. Since you do not have a contract any longer, if you still want the house, you can submit a new offer.

Good luck.
