Are you working with an agent? If so ask them what happened. Sometimes (1/3 of transactions) fall out of escrow.

If you aren't working with an agent you can contact me with the addresss and I'll find out if its still availiable.

Oak Hills has a rural area that does have brush. Are you asking if you buy a house in Oak Hills will you be paying the extra $150 a year assessment for fire prevention, the answer is most likely yes. If you lived here you would keep the brush away from your house. I have many friends that live in Oak Hills and love the convenience to the high desert and to the basin communities. Many commuters find it great place to live. There are many larger executive style homes in the area. This area may appeal to people that enjoy an equestrian live style. There is also a tract area in Oak Hills with side walks and smaller lots. We have a little bit of everything in the High Desert.

Hi there Linda,

It all depends on what you are looking for in a home and area. These areas are quite different from each other.

I would suggest driving the areas to see where you would possibly like to live. Give me a call if I can be of any help!

First and foremost; Thanks for Serving!

Your first stop would be a Veteran's Affairs Office:
You need to apply for your ELIGIBILTY,
and they will have information about it.
Understand that the Gov has thrown us a curve: they gave us a FUNDING FEE, which is about 2.3%.
This FEE can be folded into the loan, which dramatically increases the effective Interest Rate, or you can pay it at the onset, (this whole thing really frosts my !@#$%!)
But you will have a NO DOWN loan which is relatively easy to qualify for, and has other benefits (read up)
For the Loan, you might look at the Navy Federal Credit Union, (trust me)

Good luck and may God bless

Like any neighborhood and city, houses come in many shapes, sizes, and conditions. If you would like me to be your Realtor, I would be happy to help you find a house that matches what you are looking for.

I am currently working with multiple investors who buy houses and remodel them so that I can re-sell them. If you are interested in purchasing a home in the High Desert area, give me a call so we can discuss what you are looking for. We just acquired some new properties, so if we have something that will work for you, you can pick your colors!

Ms. Solis,
As former building inspector for Hesperia, the short answer is, "Yes you can." and the longer answer is:

1. You will need to obtain a building permit.
2. Your MH may not be too old (I think 1988 is the oldest unit the city allows, but check with the city--THIS SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU DO BEFORE PURCHASING A MH)
3.You will still have to pay park and school fees based on the square footage of your home.
4. You will need a septic system or IF within 200' of sewer, hook up to sewer.
5. Install a water meter.
6. You need the pier plans for any MH you buy and I believe they must be good for CA seismic conditions

So, these things may cost you an additional $20-30K in addition to your MH, but check with the city to verify, in case they have had any fee reductions or more details that could help you bring a MH in.

I once had to issue a 30 day notice to remove a MH to a family that had one delivered to their property, and the city wouldn't have allowed it, and they didn't check,so they they had the issue of needing to spend $5K to have it towed.

My advice to anyone, is check with building and safety BEFORE you do any sort of development on your property as part of your due diligence.

Randy Brown answered:
There are a few reasons for this. First, the banks have limited the number of home they put on the market right now which has decreased the supply of non-short-sale homes for sale. Second, the limited number of homes for sale is driving prices up ( the avg. price per square foot in July 2012 for Hesperia is $65.13 per square foot. per VictorValley MLS) Third, many home owners are still up-side-down on their mortgage and deciding to wait to sell. Finally, for a decent home in Hesperia you need to be willing to pay about $75 per foot. So with the right agent who act quickly and a little patience you should still be able to find one under $100,000 ... more
