Joan Roberts answered:
That's a good question but very hard to answer. Utility costs vary drastically between a user's own personal habits and the particular utility company. One person using a house may have low bills but the next person may use the utilities heavily and have much higher bills. Also water may be very cheap in some areas but very expensive in others. It is best to contact the companies direct and find out what they consider to be an average usage bill for the month. ... more

For $1300-1400./month you may be able to identify a 1+1. Two bedrooms start at $1400/month. Good luck and be very careful when trying to find a 'great deal' as there are some scammers out there, too. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
So, you have made an OFFER, a Shortsale Offer, through a Realtor, and you are waiting for the Bank to respond:
Understand that the home owners accepting the offer is almost meaningless:
The homeowner has to have their "hardship" accepted by their Lender,
and the Bank would have to accept the offer.

I'm concerned that if you have a Buyer's Agent working for you; why you would have to ask us this question.

You do have a Buyer's Agent representing you?
You didn't just give an OFFER to the homeowner, thinking that that would do the trick, did you?
And the homeowner goes have a genuine "Hardship", right? and they have applied to their Lender for their hardship to be accepted, right?
And the homeowner is not just Upside/Down, right?

Good luck and may God bless

Alain Picard answered:
That just depends on how long of a lease you are looking for. If the house is for sale most likely the owner will want to have you on a short term lease. Also if the home is for sale you will have to allow prospective buyers who give proper notice to view the house while you are living there. In my opinion I would find a home that isn't for sale but it's totally up to you. ... more

The funds may be used only for closing cost, recurring and non recurring. Any unused credits are retained by the seller/bank. Any cash back would be againts lending guidelines. Buy the rate down as low as you can and be happy you only needed funds for the down payment and all your cost were covered. ... more

Barry Shapiro answered:
There are a lot of reasons to rent, rather than buy. In many cases today, the amount of money a renter spends on rent can be about the same as or less than the amount a homeowner spends on a mortgage. With the tax benefit for homeowners, the savings can be significant. If you plan to relocate in a year or 2-3 years from now, Buying may not be the best choice. As a renter, your monthly payment already goes towards:
Property Taxes and Special Assessments
Home/Hazard Insurance
Home Owner Association (HOA) Fee: Doesn't apply to all purchases. It pays for items such as trash & maintenance of common grounds if applicable...

Todd Kaufman answered:
Hi Bperego408,

There is indeed a home for sale on Peoria Avenue but it is listed for $579k. I'm not sure which site gave you such misinformation but it is incorrect. Every day, I come across buyers who are just looking for honest, current information on the housing market. Unfortunately, a lot of the third party sites are outdated and in many cases list a home for the amount due on the note, not the actual asking price. One of the services I offer is the opportunity to receive a listing alert, directly from the MLS itself; customized to notify you as soon as a home that meets your criteria hits the market. I am a local Simi Valley REALTOR who is very familiar with the area. I would be more than happy to assist you. I encourage you to log in to my website to set up the listing alert that will address your specific needs.

Best Regards,

Todd Kaufman

Hi Rascal,

1115 Catlin #A has not sold. It is currently active and has been on the market for 87 days. This property may rent between $1800 and $2000. And the time it takes to lease the property would depend on how aggressively you price the rental.
