Hi Joy C

The market may see another small droop of 2%-4% but guaranteeing mortgage rates to stay this low will be very difficult. So my suggestion is to buy at this time while you can take advantage of this great rates.

Please advise if I could assist you or answere any other questions.

You can check the box on page 2 H (3) that states the loan contingency shall remain in effect until the loan funds. That said, a sharp agent will counter that out.
Good luck,

There are a lot of condos available in the Michelson area. Are you looking for a condo or a single family home? Irvine is a great place to live and their school district has received the Distinguished Blue Ribbon designation. I'd be happy to send you what's available if you provide me with your price range (for rental and for purchasing) and search criteria i.e. minimum # of bedrooms, etc. My email is: ... more

This is a determination that you will have to make on your own since legally as a Realtor we can not give you an answer. I can tell you to research it out on the internet, and you may even call the local police department and talk to them. The other thing you could do is talk to some of the neighbors in the area to see what they say. Good Luck! ... more

Hi Parisa, your least costly option is to be someone's roommate, which will cost you in the neighborhood of $800. per month.

If you want a place of your own, the next step up is a studio ( No separate bedroom.) or a 1 or 2 bedroom place.

Here's a venue for conducting a search:

Just plug in your wants & needs. Good luck in your search!

Bob Phillips answered:
OCbuyer22, you can also find prices and values in older sections of Lake Forest or Mission Viejo, which don't have Mello/Roos taxes, just like older sections of Laguna Hills, with a similar commute.

Irvine offers a better rated school district than all the others, but part of that equation is that in Irvine, you will usually get a smaller house, on a smaller lot, for prices comparable to L.H., L.F., or M.V..

If schools are your priority, then Irvine will probably be your choice. If kids aren't an issue, then go for any of the other communities.

As for long-term investment thinking, the same differences will likely be in place 5, 10, or 25 years from now.

Hi Thaoh,
With your budget you could purchase a condo but finding a single family home would be unlikely.
You might also want to consider Tustin Ranch area where prices are a little better than Irvine.
Good luck,

Hi Bravo:

There are some loans that you may be able to qualify, depending on the extend of your credit report. There are also credit repairing companies that can help you. There are constant changes in the lender and real estate field. The most important is to see where you are now and how to prepare you to get you where you want to be. Sometimes the progress will take some time, but the main thing is, knowing what you need to do in the shortest amount of time to get there. Feel free to contact me & I'll be happy to go over your situation with you.

The absolute best people to ask are people who live in then neighborhood, go knock on some doors. It is a fine area of older Irvine housing, looks to me like many people still caring well for their properties, lots of green lawns, but of course, as with any neighborhood a few bad apples. No HOA contributes to this, HOAs have pros & cons & you need to decide of you want to live in a neighborhood with these types of rules or not.

Please let me know if I can help you any further. You can look through the MLS just like I do at this area by clicking on my web link below.
