The deposit is usually for the Landlord to insure that upon your exit that you have not damaged the property excessively and that you are current in your rent. So, giving it to you before you actually leave seems to defeat the purpose. ... more

Hi Susan,

I'm sorry that your question hasn't received any answers yet. Unfortunately, West Covina doesn't have a lot of activity at the moment, but I can still help connect you with the right people.

I recommend that you get in touch with Adrian, a property manager at AMG Management based in West Covina. You can call him directly on (909) 685-4871 and tell him that you found him through Trulia Voices. He should be able to point you in the right direction.

Good luck with your search!

Community Manager, Trulia Voices

A furnace can last a long time 25-50 years, so does a roof depending on
type of material used .

Do a roof inspection and figure out the expected life of the roof and call out
a Furnace inspection company.

If the market is rising a seller is unlikely to give you credit or lower the price.
If the market is flat or there are plenty of homes then go ahead.

What does your Realtor advise.

Have you done comparables of similar homes ?

Hello Kit,
When you buy foreclosed property in auction you have to pay the FULL amount in CASH.
I have done this in Florida but may differ in other states.

So there is no down payment or monthly payments.

Please contact the court house for the procedures.

For crime statistics you need to reference the city website or call the police department.

Realtors cannot "steer" you to certain areas, we can't tell you which areas are "safe" or "family" friendly or we'll lose our licenses.

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

Acal - Yes, it is possible. The time line varies. Talk to a lender that can help you with what you need to do 1st. Also, start working on your credit as that can take a while to repair.

Robert D Hughes answered:
Acal, every state is different in their foreclosure process. Again check out your location on Google, contact a reputable Foreclosure-attorney to verify the laws of West Covina, CA 91792. In Pennsylvania secondary liens like 2nd, 3rd mortgages usually receive nothing or a very small amount. As the 1st lien holder is usually taking a loss, so there isn't much or anything left over for junior lien holders.

Again best of luck, and verify all info with reputable/knowledgeable professionals please.

Harold Sharpe answered:
Cash to Existing loan terms.
Generally speaking cash is a cash purchase.
Existing loan means take over existing loan, usually with a large down payment and paying the remainder of their loan with their interest rate they had.
Is it possible, that they may sell the property to your FHA loan but keep in mind the property will have to pass an FHA appraisal inspection. Now many think well I will just have the sellers pay for any repairs. Great thought however many sellers don't want to pay for repairs. This means you may not get the property and you will have already paid out around 200 -350 for a home inspection, and another 400- 500 for an appraisal, only to move on to another property. Buying a home is not like buying pretzels in a store and there are many many variables and this is why you should find a local buyers agent to assist you.

Cindy Grimaldi/Bell answered:
It would be very hard for the buyer to force the sell if you change your mind before closing escrow.
Can the buyer sue for performance? Yes. Anyone can sue for most any reason, but there are so many other listings that it would be easier for them to move on.
Good Luck

allan erps,ABR,SFR answered:
In my opinion this is a great time to buy. The main factor is the Interest Rates of a Mortgage presently! Do not know your general area but with the market pretty stabilized here prices are back to 2003-4. I see this as an affordable way and opportunity to purchase Real Estate with alot less risk than previous years. Best of Luck ... more

Jim Simms answered:
If your existing loan is with WF it may be some what true. There is no such thing as no closing cost, the mortgage must be recorded and that takes a little money. WF or any other lender for that matter can charge a slightly higher interest rate and use some of the overage to pay closing cost. How they do it is not important if you are happy with the rate. ... more

Robert Spinosa answered:

I'm not sure there can be any release of information here and regarding the appraisal. Typically your new mortgage company will need a new appraisal due to the Home Valuation Code of Conduct.

Perhaps I am not fully understanding your question, however, so let me know if I can help further.

Thank you,

Rob Spinosa

Depends on how original contract was written. Did you have inspection provision? Was the contract AS-IS-Where_Is?
