Elizabeth Salinas Kelley answered:
I'm sorry to hear this. Who has the deposit? If the property is no longer on the market, it's possible the people renting the property either already leased it to someone else, or they changed their mind and decided not to lease it. Perhaps your agent can speak with the manager of the listing agent, and demand the deposit back. Hope this helps.

Call her Broker. Find out the office she works with and all the office - ask to speak with the broker. It would also help if you had an agent who was doing this for you.

Hi xploratur,

It may be inaccurate information. The best way to know would be to contact the listing agent. The county may have inaccurate information but the listing agent may have the correct information. When you contact the listing agent, make sure all the bedrooms they are counting have closets. If there is no closet, it is not really a bedroom.

There are no additional expenses-taxes per se for foreigners when buying or selling real estate in California.

Profits from the sales will be taxed according to State and Federal Tax guidelines for foreigners, and some withholding will happen at sale.

I have worked with foreign investors before and I can put you in contact with tax attorneys that will assist you in determining your tax liability upon sale based on your citizenship and other factors.

Where do you currently live? Santa Monica and Long Beach are very different from each other but you won't be finding any decent bedrooms in either for $900.

Try using www.padmapper.com for now to just give yourself an idea of rent pricing along the water. ... more

Bob Friday answered:
Both locations have their pluses and minuses. 12th and Broadway is a rapidly developing area fairly close to the beach and the Promenade. With the soon-to-arrive MetroLine transportation system coming to Santa Monica, I believe that this area only gets better and better. Princeton and Wilshire is in the College Streets area further east in Santa Monica. It's a stable and densely populated neighborhood with tons of services, restaurants, retail and lots of traffic - a very urban environment that is great for those who like a bit more of a NYC-style of neighborhood. I don't think you can go wrong in either location.

Hello,
Could you please be more specific? There are small pockets of Santa Monica that are less than desirable.
My current clients prefer north of Santa Monica and above.
Feel free to contact me for further info.

Lena Samigoullina answered:
Yes, there a lot of investors attending the auctions. For $10 K you can probably buy a small parcel of land. There's no way a home will go for that price, unless it comes with a large amount of delinquencies that the buyer will be responsible for. The banks always have a reserve price for the auctions. If the property doesn't sell at a reserve price or higher, banks take those properties to their own portfolios and those properties become REO listings. Reserve price and starting bid are often completely different numbers.

Call me if you'd like more information about buying property at the auction. I go to the auctions a lot, going to one tomorrow.

Jane Peters answered:
Property taxes in California do not change on the number of homes you own. They are tied to the home itself. You can base the amount roughly on 1.25% give or take.

Sorry you have been having so much trouble. If you have not been working with a Realtor® that should be your first step. Actually, that should be your second step after you have talked to a lender and been pre-qualified. What problems have you been encountering? Have you narrowed down an area? ... more
