Hi Ebe,

If you are south of the blvd in the hills you should absolutely do a geological survey, if you are in the flats, then you might want to see what your general inspector recommends. The inspector may see signs of structural or geological issues, or may not. I live in the area, in the flats, and haven't seen many issues, aside from mostly chimney's having problems after the 1994 earthquake. But your inspector will be able to guide you much better, as well as your realtor. Best of luck to you.

18307 Burbank Blvd. is a pretty safe area. Mostly security buildings and a lot of traffic.

You can find 2 bedroom condos in Tarzana for under $200,000. There are none currently available that aren't short sales or "cash-only," but they pop up once a week. The most recent escrows were at Lorena Villas (18307 Burbank) were a 2 bedroom upstairs with freeway noise sold "in the high $170,000s." If you would like to see properties, let me know, I sell as many condos in Tarzana as any other agent.

Angie,

dont take everything out from your savings!! You don't have to stop paying the mortgage in order to qualify for the modification, may be you are not talking to the right person. Try to contact someone in loss mitigation department of your lender to talk about modifcation or contact some loan modifcation company who doesnt charge upfront fees for modification.

But If the lender is not working with you on loan modification, then do short sale, at least you can avoid foreclosure and have some piece of mind. For short sale, contact a realtor who has experienced in closing some short sale.

Richard Schulman answered:
Not enough info to tell. It is not uncommon today for loans to take longer than normal. Your agent should be in contact with the buyer's lender to determine what is going on. If needed your agent should send them a notice to perform.

There aren't a lot of 2 bedrooms at that price (lowest closed sale in Encino in the past 5 years $168,900), but there are 1 bedrooms in that price range.

This is another one of the terrible RealtyTrac listings. Who knows what the story is behind this property, or what the address even is!

You're better off finding a trusted realtor and mortgage broker, and finding a house youself.

The valley is full of properties that have unpermitted space, and they sell all the time. Do you know what specifically was the problem with the unpermitted space? Did it seem to have a structural problem?

Ute Ferdig answered:
Hi Katie. I would check with the Los Angeles County Association of Realtors and title companies there as they are usually very active in putting on seminars on short sales and foreclosures and other topics of interest to real estate agents. You may also be able to get the information by visiting their respective websites. Perhaps they could even agree to e-mail you of upcoming seminars. I don't know if they'll do it for people who are not members, but it does not hurt to ask. ... more
