The easiest way would be for you to qualify for a cash out refinance to pay off the other beneficiaries and then put the house back in the trust (most likely now modified)

Any furher help on the loan let me know. ... more

The name on title is the entity that owes the fees.
As the property is already in foreclosure, if the HOA has hired an attorney to collect the unpaid fees, the attorney is able to put a lien on the property and the HOA should receive their fees through the foreclosure revenues.

One of many nice things about the City of Santa Monica, is that we're not cutting back on city services, like City of L.A.

Hi there Jerati. My advice is to consult with a professional Realtor who works with short sales. They can be very rewarding for buyers but also can be very frustrating if you are not fully informed or educated

You need to be working hand in hand with a professional for such a transaction

If you are not working with an agent and would like to talk about some ideeas then let me know

Kind Regards

Yes, the Realtor can continue to market the property as long as it is clear that they are marketing for back up offers.

You can't change agents at this time but you can go over he/she's head . The broker of the company where your agent works is responsible and you can tell him what is going on.

Then do it unrepresented and let the listing agent get the money. I don't know what benefit that would be to you but its your choice.

Hello Kflagg,

I have arranged to see it. I think it's a great deal so it might be smart to see it before the open house. Please give me a call at 323.899.2900 or email mcarrabba@kw.com and I'd be happy to show you the home in West LA Sunday Morning.

M.D.J answered:
Good idea, though your current rate is pretty good already and with what you owe the payment difference might not be very much. Just make sure to take into consideration the total cost and as another alternative maybe a 10 yr. loan instead.

Any questions let me know and good luck to you.

Daniel Monroe answered:
Certainly, you did all the leg work and found the property. Any decent agent would be willing to drop the commission by 1%. If the agent does not agree, keep in mind that you are not yet under contract and you can walk away at any time. Also, find out how long the house has been on the market ... that seller may be motivated and, you may not have to raise your offer. ... more

David answered:
Tom is called broker reciprocity if you decide to purchase an idx link for your website.

You need written permission from every agent that agrees to let you advertise their property. Not all agent will do this and for good reason.

However, many will.

Take a look at www.postandsend.com They are a buyers agents best friend!

Jodi Summers answered:
I'm guessing you're talking about renting an apartment.
In Santa Monica, Initial lease term is generally one year, and then you go on month to month.
Rent increases are dictated by the City of Santa Monica in July, they go into effect into September. They never seem to equal the cost of living increase. (This year was 2.7%).
Prices are as variable as jobs, depending upon what you're leasing...one bedroom, two bedroom, three bedroom, etc. I believe the going rate for a 1-bedroom in Ocean Park is around $1,800 per month at the moment.
