I will be happy to figure this out for you. I do periodic Yorba Linda reports for Realty Times and I may already have a lot of this info.

Do you have a specific neighborhood or area of Eastlake in mind? Eastlake homes vary greatly in size and age and this causes a big variation in price. And then, there is Eastlake Shores ... which is totally different. General info may not be what you really want.

Send me an Email with a few specifics and I believe I can get you the stats you need.

It would be best to speak with a lender and fill out an application to see what you can qualify for with your current debt and funds you have for a down payment etc. I work with a really great lender and he has an online application you can fill out or you can give him a call first and talk to him before filling out an application. If you would like some help, I would be happy to put you in touch with him.

Happy New Year,

Hi 'Colinz1726':

I am assuming you are trying to find out the avarages in Yorba Linda.
It might help if you can break it down a bit to get more accurate numbers...

The average numbers will vary depending if it is a single familly versus condos, and also depends on size of the homes.. 1500 sqaure foot homes cannot be compared to the luxury homes square foot averages...

If you can narrow down what averages you are looking for, I will be glad to get you the numbers.

Seller financing is an option, but I would make sure an attorney reviews it before signing anything

If you are really interested I can take a picture of the same model in the neighborhood. With the exception of the huge porch and pillars it looks about the same as the first floor did originally but the windows and doors were pushed back a little further. about 5 feet. ... more

Hi Don,

You are right this is a great neighborhood. I watched the properties being built. I live a few blocks away. Really a good area. I have shown this home a number of times. Manufactured homes are a lot less expensive. I was surprised to see a manufactured home in this tract. I think it is the only one. There is complete tract of manufactured homes off of Avenida Adobe in Yorba Linda. Children in the Avenida Adobe tract go to the awesome Travis Ranch school. The only school in Yorba Linda that is K-8.
This home on Sunwest is in escrow but its status is Back Up Offer so a buyer can still view the house if they like. Sometimes houses fall out of escrow for various reasons. It went in to escrow on March 20th.
Should you wish to see this house and don't have an agent to show it for you please let me know.

James Wehner answered:

All of the items you listed are incentives you can use towards negotiating if need be. I would just check the comparable sale, see what your active competition is and price it accordingly.

If the home is priced right it will sell without any additional incentives.

Best of luck!

Sally Grenier answered:
That's a pretty general question for an online forum like this. The only way to know for sure is to contact a Realtor in your area who can give you a detailed market analysis. He/she will be able to tell you what homes have been selling for, how long they've been on the market, current inventory, etc. If you need the name of someone, please let me know.

Jesse Sierra answered:
Hi Michael,
Sad to say but, you are at the Jr. loans mercy. Have your agent contact the listing agent and have him follow up with the attorney and second mortgage on a daily basis, until they get in touch or get some kind of communication going.

Be strong and good luck,

Jes Sierra, B.Sc.

Ashlie DuCros answered:
There were many investors that bought several of those condos few years back when they thought it was a goood investment. These investors bought 3-5 or more units at a time. Unfortunately, it didn't turn to be such good investments since the economy started to turn. There is nothing wrong with those areas. In fact, right now is better investment to buy since you can get one half the price the other investors first bought it for. Let me know if you have any other question.
