It says models open, therefore I am assuming it is new construction.... the photo may show one of the models.... If you are interested in new construction you should still contact a Realtor and go with your
Realtor, your buyers agent to see the property and discuss with YOUR Realtor and may be compare
this offering with other available new homes or newer homes, so that when you make your final decision it will be a well informed one.
If you need a recommendation for a local Realtor, let me know.
Good Luck to you

Hi Martina,
This home is not currently listed on our MLS. In September, this home became a bank-owned property. It will most likely be a number of months before it comes to the market as an active listing.
I would be happy to keep an eye on that address and notify you when it comes on the market. Or, if you are interested in seeing some similar properties in that area that are currently available, feel free to contact me directly.
If you would like me to contact you when the home comes on the market, just send me your information and I will do just that.

Thank you,

Yes, but you have to be very aggressive and be willing to do cosmetic work. Your talking a price range of approx. 80-85K depending on closing costs. Do you already have your lending situated? That is something you would have to do first. If you do not have anyone, I can refer you to a good lender. If you are not working with an agent, I can help you with that also. Just let me know.

Dan Tabit answered:
A home's value is always subject to change. A few years ago things were going up 10% to 20% a year, which is part of why we are in this mess. The decision will depend on your short, medium and long term plans and where you think the market is going. If you need the proceeds now, sell soon. If you bought it as a long term investment and are getting a reasonable rent, hold on and wait for things to recover. How soon that will take is anybody's guess. ... more

Juanita Brooks answered:
Were the comps around the 203 mark and your upgrades was anything other the 3rd car garage, pool, or extra bath, then the upgrades are just something that would help the house sale faster, but does not add a lot of value. The appraiser has to go by the comps in you area, the reappraisal is to verify what the value of the house is worth. If you have higher comps in your area that the appraiser can use, then the higher the value on your home. Hope this has help if you have any other questions just call me at 661 204-8669 Thanks Juanita Brooks ... more

Brian N. Tuttle answered:
You need to offer fair market value. Regardless of what you offer and the Seller accepts,, a loan will be unattainable due to your lenders appraisal if you offer too much. Your Real Estate agent should run a CMA report for the area to determine the value prior to writing a offer. ... more

Tehachapi Mountain Group answered:
I think we'll be busy due to the huge inventory, the low prices and the great interests rates right now. The fact the home ownership is more affordable than ever is making those who never thought they could step and take the plunge. However, I don't think our economy is anywhere near a recovery state. None the less...I agree ...I think we will see a busy winter. ... more

Robert Savage answered:
This is a great time to purchase rental property in Bakersfield. Positive cash flow is not a problem. Rents have declined somewhat over the last two years but housing prices have fallen so much that it is now easier than ever to get a great return. Unemployment is an issue for us. Our unemployment rate is above 15%. Our unemployment is usually higher than the state average since we have many agriculture and oil related jobs and those tend to be volatile job markets. We have had a number of tenants lose their jobs over the last year but in most cases they were able to continue paying their rent with the help of their unemployment benefits.

I am a broker, investor and property manager. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance. I would love to help.

Dan Chase answered:
The buyers bribe died. No one buying a house gets $8,000 just because they buy a house. Interest in buying dropped. Future buyers got pulled into (now) past purchases and the amount of buyers wanting to buy is much smaller.

In may new sales dropped by 33%. Mortgage applications also dropped greatly despite exceptionally low interest rates.

I expect lower prices for some time to come. The future will show if I am correct or not.

Purchasing a home will always have a tax advantage, search for a foreclosure below market value with equity, therefore in 4 years could sale make a profit excluding the tax advantages received over 4 year time period. OR keep the home after 4 years lease for additonal yearly income.

I just checked on this home. If it is the one across from Frito Lay, it is a very nice home and as a realtor feel it would be worth the $1,100.00 a month. This is a newer home and looks worth the $1,100/mo. rental charge. Please let me know if I can be of any service to you if you are considering buying or selling in the future. Thank you - Diane Valadon ... more
