Much depends on how quickly you want to get into your home. For your budget, you may have to go further east than Monrovia, Azusa, Duarte, Covina, La Puente, areas like that. Buying land will take at least 1 to 2 years before you can get a house on it. Give me a call. ... more

I am sorry you can't get a home loan if you are not US citizen or green card.

I honestly think you should be asking your agent these questions. There are to many missing details to give you a truly informed answer. I would proceed with caution if you are not getting honest, timely advise. ... more

You really should have or had a buyer broker that could advise you what the property is really worth in todays market, you can not and should not take on the world by your self. They may be correct or may be playing you. With a short sale the bank does not have to take anything less if they so choose, in most cases they will take 80% of what the seller owes. In a short sale there are not supposed to be back up offers as all offers are supposed to be submitted as they come in to the bank. No offer even if signed by the seller is valid until accepted by the bank. The bank want sthe highest net price for the home and encourages all offers to be submitted as they come in. You first need to see what the value of the house IS in todays market and figure out is that what you want to pay, if so go for it and if not back out. So you know that in most cases you can negotiate with a buyer broker so that it does not costs you jmanything out of pocket as the buyer agent gets paid at closing from the listing broker the fee offered in MLs. This way you have someone looking out for you. This is what you need.... good luck with your purchase. ... more

There is alot of buzz that the seller down payment assistant programs will be reinstated after the 10/1 deadline. So if you miss the cut off, they will be back.
