Amanda Contreras answered:

I agree downtown Culver City is very nice. The average price for a 3 bedroom home available now is $748,000 the low is $649,000. There are 16, 3 bedroom single family homes currently available .

As far as condos the newest constuction 3 bedroom condo available now is listed for $529,000 built in 1991.

Please let me know how else I can help you. I know the area well and have a solid track record representing buyers throughout West L.A.

It depends if you want diamond floors. To save money on the remodel, I suggest putting DIAMONDS ON THE SOLES OF YOUR SHOES.

Mimi Davies answered:
I assume that you are obtaining a loan since you mentioned the mortgage.
If you put 20% down payment: mortgage + tax + HOA fees
If you put less than 20% down, your lender will charge you PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance).

Have you been pre-approved yet? If you're approved for an FHA loan, the condo must be FHA approved to qualify for your loan.

Did you see a condo that caught your eye? Let me know if you want me to send you listings or if you have any questions.

Emily Knell answered:
It will be wiped out one way or another. An old HOA lien won't transfer to the new owner.

Either the HOA lien will be dealt with through the short sale process by either the existing lien holder agreeing to pay for it OR a combination of the lien holder, the current owner & possibly even YOU, agreeing to pay a portion of it so the HOA will release the home for short sale & the lien holder will agree to the short sale & allow the sale to happen.

It is also possible that the HOA will agree to let it sell for less than what is owed & then slap the (now previous) owner with a personal lien or judgment & go after them AFTER the sale.

You need to have your agent investigate RIGHT NOW what is currently owed & have the listing agent PLEAD with the property management company to NOT file a Notice of Default on the outstanding balance, otherwise the legal fees & major major fines start to kick in!!!===

Shoot me an email if you want to talk about this some more.I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.

Hi Wanda,

No, there are other loan options available requiring less of a down payment. You can get an FHA loan with only 3-1/2% down, and I just had a client recently qualify for a conventional loan with only 5% down. I would be happy to put you in touch with a good mortgage agent who would be able to help you out - let me know. Good luck with your search.

There's no way to tell. In some areas of the country, the value would have gone up. In other areas, the value would have gone down.

In addition, of course, the condition of the house may have changed since 2007.

Have a Realtor do a CMA.

Hope that helps.

Your realtor gave you the correct information, all liens are wiped out, once the first lien has been foreclosed on, except for tax liens. I would consult with an attorney who has experience with foreclosures. If may take a cease and desist letter to the bank.

Before purchasing with a co-signor, or not, consider having employment so to cover all your expenses, including emergencies; you as the borrower, need to consider the economic factors of your lifestyle that would impact on your individual comfort level of affordability.

Laura Feghali answered:
Hello Joyce,
I suggest that you interview a few local agents to learn what marketing tools and strategies they offer. They will discuss with you what their commission fee is as they are negotiable. The agent will post your rental listing on the internet real estate web sites and your local MLS for free when you work with a real estate agent as this is one reason why you pay a commission fee for their assistance.
Hope this is helpful.
Good luck!

You can always hire an agent to advertise it on the Multiple Listing Service. This allowes agents that have clients looking for a lease to be able to see your property. If you do not want to pay an agent to advertise for you then you can always place an add in Craigslist. ... more
