Susan Boyle answered:
I had this happen to me with one of my rental properties. I posted a large warning in the living room picture window for the folks that had been directed to drive by so they could be saved any grief. They always tell you they are out of town and you need to drive by first and then send them your data and/or deposit funds. I simply posted the warning and a public tax record identifying me as the true owner, the correct rental information such as real price and my number. then I of course contacted Craig's List as well (assuming this is Craig's List too) and let them know so they could take this scammer down ... more

You need to communicate with your lender. Tell your lender that you have questions that have not been answered.
If you cannot get your questions answered, then tell him that you to work with another lender.
I can refer a good VA lender to you if needed.

Robin Calderon answered:
Long run, you would have more equity build up in a SFR (Single Family Residence). But would have to carry the burden of having the mortgage payment on it, though at a good interest rate due to your 50% downpayment. Plus you would not have to ever worry about an HOA.
On the other hand. You could cash flow starting now, and build up an immediate income with a Condo.
Feel free to call me in order to further discuss these and other ideas...

Hi Rachel,

Yes, that's very feasible. You won't pay any commission as a buyer -- that's paid for by the seller. When you decide to rent it out, the typical fee for property management is 7 percent.

You'll want to consider potential rents when determining whether a particular property will make sense to convert to a rental property. We can help you compare sales prices as well as evaluate future rental potential.

Please feel free to call or email if you'd like to discuss your plans in more detail. I can be reached at 562-896-2456 or

Sheila Caron answered:
There's a few on the market currently. Most are in North Long Beach and the Westside. You can check crime rates but driving the neighborhoods is the best way to know how safe you consider the area. Also several in Eastside area. This is probably your best bet but can be sketchy a well. Might be doable but inventory is very
Low right now and it may take some patience. If you want direct access to MLS to review yourself, feel free to contact me and I'll set you up. Good luck.

Hi power123,

1.25% of the purcase price is a common "quesstimate"; however, your effective property tax bill actually consists of three separate levy categories: General Tax Levy, Voter Approved Indebtedness and Direct/Special Assessments. See:

"Estimating Property Taxes in CA"

Cindy Davis answered:
I'm very unclear here about whether you have your own agent or not. Generally, if you back out of a deal after the initial 17 day inspection, you will forfeit your deposit,

If however, the seller is unable to sell in the time period you agreed upon in writing, you should be able to cancel.

That said, I would need to see your purchase contract and escrow papers to know exactly what you're dealing with.

If you don't have your own buyer's agent, I encourage you to consult with a real estate attorney.

Best wishes.

You'll have to provide some more information about the contingencies of the contract. For instance, are you past the home inspection date? Loan commitment date?
