HI there are some properties in that price range, it all depends where you want to be. I would say the $2000 will be better to work with. I have been working with other clients and there isn't much under $2000 that is in good shape. If you want my help just email me or call and I will send you properties available now. Thanks 626-872-2451 ... more

The price for a condo will depend on the size, condition and location. The best way not to be ripped off is to work with a reputable Realtor. We can tell you what properties are for sale and provide comparable prices of similar properties that have sold in the area. Assuming you would be getting a loan in order to purchase a property, your bank would also require that an appraisal be performed. The appraiser provides a report explaining the properties current value based on comparable sales as well. If you would like assistance, please feel free to call or email me. ... more

You should consult with your broker or a legal advisor on this. The answer really depends on how the 1031 is structured.

Hi Charlie,

Please check out my listing:
2B2Br2Pkg Townhome Condo Near 210 Gold Line PCC CalTech

It's a rare opportunity to rent this home that's a lot of character unlikely the typical 4-white-wall apartment you'd find on the market.

Please contact me at 626-823-3690 if you're interested to take a look.

This sounds like a short sale, is it?
Shorts sales can take a long time to get a final answer.

H Travises,
You don't have to get an extension signed but most likely the seller will want some assurances that you and your lender will perform, especially if you are thinking of 1-3 weeks. Why wouldn't you ask for an extension of time - better your requesting than having the seller issue you a non-performance notice or cancellation.

From my experience in discussing potential clients pre-qualification for a VA Loan, the credit score must be in an acceptable range.

Not sure what property specifically you are talking about, but yes, when you see something you like you MUST act immediately, inventory is very low right now and we are in a Market of Multiple offers over asking price in most areas. HOA fees are different in every association and are made by the Dept. Of Real Estate. if you are not already working with an agent I would be more than happy to help you answer all your questions. feel free to contact me.

Junkpiler, construction loans are available providing you have a viable exit strategy i.e. take out loan. Are you planning to build the prefab yourself or are you going to hire a licensed contractor? There are several very good pre fab products on the market today. Lindal has been around for decades and delivers a very good produc\t.

That stated, it's only as good as the person/s putting it together. You may also want to consider a "Factory Built" (Manufactured (HUD) or Modular home depending on the location and the relative CC&Rs. In this situation you are purchasing a home that is completly built before it leaves the factory.

You can do just about anything you want to do with Factory Built Housing nowadays i.e. stucco ready, tile roof ready, curvalinear architectural detailing i.e. pop out & inset features, upgraded kitchens, bathrooms, floor, window, wall coverings, appliances, etc.

The turn around time is a lot faster and you have no excess or wasted materials and you don't have to worry about vandalism, theft or weather conditions. All in all it's a very practical and cost effective way to build a home today and many banks will offer conventional FHA, Fanny/Freddie.

I don't know where you are planning to build but most if not all Counties and Cities are FBH friendly. The most important aspect of the entire procedure be it "Factory Built" or "Prefab" is hiring an experienced, licensed, bonded and insured contractor. I definitely don't reccomend trying to take on a project like this as an owner/builder. You may find it very difficult to find construction or take out financing.

We are a family owned and operated Factory Built Housing Dealer & Developer, general and manufactured home contractor, real estate broker, architectural, engineering, landscaping and interior design company with over 100 years of combined experience.

We may not be in your geographical area as we work primarily in the Orange County, San Diego and Palm Springs/Palm Desert area. But we will be more than happy to coach you and direct you to a competent, experienced and properly licensed and insured MH Dealer and Contractor at no cost as long as it can be done online or by phone.

Please feel free to log onto any of our very user friendly websites or email me at or you can call me anytime on my cell at 760 815-6977.
