Brings to mind my conversation with my dear hairdresser once who works in Newport Beach...when I found out he lived in Long Beach (Landmark GORGEOUS house) I asked him if he ever got a bad rap for living here (after all, you do hear stories from time to time)...he was shocked and replied "Oh! Only from un-educated people" made me smile! Long Beach is GREAT...something for everyone...and that is a TRUE story! ... more

I'm not sure what program your friend is referring to. A couple of years ago, there were more home purchase assistance programs available to first-time home buyers. Now, there aren't so many programs. With the strength of today seller's market, those needing assistance are out-competed by cash buyers or those with 20-50% down in cash. ... more

California Civil Code 1950.5 guarantees your right to request a pre-inspection prior to move out, regardless of what the lease says.
The landlord has 21 days to return your deposit, either the complete deposit or the deposit minus charges for repairs (must have written estimates or receipts to support amount subtracted). If the landlord fails to do so within 21 days, they no longer have the right to subtract any amount and must return the complete deposit. Getting them to do so is another matter, you should consult with an attorney if the landlord fails to allow an inspection or return your deposit properly. ... more

Hi Tom,

I hope your evening is going well. I do have a couple of questions that I need to ask prior to searching for you new home.....first is your price range, how many will be occupying the place and if you have any pets?

Please let me know.

Thanks

Very good question. First off some slight good news for first time buyer or buyers as a whole. Investors are still out there but are beginning to dwindle down a tad due to the rise in home prices here in So. Cal. Now one idea is to chase FSBO's, for sale by owners, for that is a market that is beginning to grow out there inventory wise. A second idea is to meet the homeowner(s) while previewing the home so that you can try to make a connection or bond with them. And if you have children this can be a major plus for the owners will see a family who more then likely, if they sell to you, will love the home they are selling as much as they did while living there. My only other tip is not to give up on finding your home for when you do it allows someone else to buy the home you may have purchased but you quit. Final note: Spring time is traditionally one of the busier times of the year when sellers start to list their home plus with the positive price increases on homes over the past year this will pull those homeowners who were on the fence down to the ground to list their home. ... more

Definitely a seller's market right now. Very low inventory and we're seeing bidding wars.

You could possibly get a loan from Wells Fargo. I know my own lender has a loan for you so long as you have a US Passport & of course, can prove your income.

I also may have a condo coming on the market soon in Downtown Long Beach, it will be a 1b 1ba in a good building, short walk or bike ride to the shops/restaurants on Pine Ave & down to Shoreline Village.

Shoot me an email directly to talk about this further, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.

Yes. Just be prepared that the lender was referred by the REALTOR so they most likely will let them know you are working with somebody else. Might want to talk to the old REALTOR first before making the switch. Just a good courtesy. ... more

There are different ways to go your options will be better known after you get pre approved. To get approved you have to get credit ran to determine fico score, liabilities, consumer debt, credit lines, etc. See how much money you have to work with towards down payment and closing cost. Average your last 2 years income and figure out your debt ratiios present and proposed. At that point a better picture can be put together, Some options are fha has low interest rates yet the is mortgage insurance and upfront mortgage insurance attached with those loans. Then there is conventional loans in which you put 20% down you would not have mortgage insurance which is a great savings. Yet not all buyers can afford to go that route or qualify. Another interesting thing besides take the risk of an adjustable rate mortgage is to go with a conventional loan and see how much it would be to buy out the mortgage insurance or take a higher rate from lender to help pay for the mortgage insurance with lender credit. Not all lenders offer mortgage credit to help pay for things like mortgage insurance or closing costs. Fico score loan to value and other items come into play so a deeper individual analysis is needed to better assist you. I would appreciate to speak with you more in depth if you reach out to me. I am both a reaItor and loan officer with much info to share. I hope this was helpful.
Thank You,

Daniel Modin answered:
For that price it most likely will be a 2-bed condo with 2 parking. Most houses in that price will have no parking. Lakewood unlikely. More likely North LB and Paramount. Have you looked on craigslist?

As of buying, you will never know until you check what you qualify for. If you and your daughter put together both your incomes, it may be worth a try. And if you buy, your payment is fixed for 30 years, no increase, where as rent is fixed for one year max.
