There should be more inventory coming this summer, but the market is on FIRE right now with most propeties getting multiple offers and ALL CASH offers. Get yourself a great Realtor now so that they can explain what is going on and what strategies to use going forward.
Joe Homs, Realtor,
As long as your remodel is TASTEFULLY and professionally done, and it has some cohesiveness with the rest of the house - AND you make sure to get all the proper permits - your project should enhance the value of your house by at least the amount you put into the remodel.
Such a project should not jeopardize your Prop 13 standing, although any added space ( That is now between the main house and your current pool room, for example.) might make for a slightly higher assessment from the tax man.... more
I only see #172, #68 and #29 active in the MLS. You own the land in the park and the HOA looks to be $170.00 a month. If you would like more information give me a call or send me an email and I will be happy to answer your questions.

It should have been spelled out in the Lease Agreement what was covered and if so, anything that was not covered. For EXAMPLE;
Excludes: Gas/Water/Electric/Trash over $300 per month
Includes: HOA/Gardner/Pool Service. And Gas/Water/Electric/Trash UP TO $300/month.... more
Most likely no. There are homes like this of various types all over and most don't even know they are there. Besides that, never had a buyer say "no, not this neighborhood, there's a ___ home nearby"... more
Rent to owns are what ever the owner and renter want to make them. There is no one size fits all with them. Just understand they rarely work out so owners don't really like to deal with them and those that do probably understand them and make the terms even more in the favor of themselves. A renter can lose a lot of money of these things, so I suggest people avoid them. Many rent to own renters do not understand you will still have to get a bank loan to be able to buy the house in a year or you default and lose the money you put down.... more
This is a great time to buy! Homes are very affordable and mortgage interest rates are at historically low levels. The real estate market is starting to heat up and the inventory is starting to thin, so you won't want to wait much longer if you're going to buy.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding the buying process. I've helped many first time home buyers.
I have been a resident in Fullerton for 26 years. I am familiar with the area code 92832 and used to live there myself. I think what is more important is the cross streets. Every city has good areas and bad. Zip codes are so large I think you should narrow it down more! I love Fullerton!... more
Yes and No.
Yes : The listing agent should present the offer to the 3rd party involved ( the bank/s). Wait until the bank counters and let you know about the counter offer.
No: If you send a low ball offer and the listing agent knows that you are not even close to the fair market value, the listing agent might be reluctant to send your offer and take the property out of the market for 1 to 3 months until the bank counters when she or he knows that the bank will come with a counter offer much higher than your low ball offer.
Unfortunately there is no legislation on Short Sales only a set of programs, process, rules that sometimes are bent or adapted.
At the end the bank is always going to try to get a Fair Market Value and that your Buyer Agent can have it if he does a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) or even a simple CMA.
