You didn't list the property. If it has an agent or owner contact them directly.

Hi Steve, You should have received some paperwork which explains what your particular homeowners association fees cover. Some of them include roof replacement, gardening, streetlights, street paving, tree trimming, etc. It will be whatever was set up at the time the HOA was established. I would suggest you contact the HOA management for clarification of what costs are covered. Most of them have a booklet that they hand out to new owners to explain what is expected of each owner and what to expect from the HOA. If I can be of any help to you please feel free to give me a call. Jan DeTomaso, Realtor with Keller Williams 661-431-4194 ... more

You can check out crime statistics at the bottom of each listing on Trulia's website.
Also, you can call the Bakersfield Police Department 661-327-7111 and ask them about crime in the area.
A Realtor is not authorized to answer a question like that, a buyer must do their own research on an area they are interested in living.

Good luck to you!

Sites like Trulia and Zillow are not used by the real estate appraisal industry... they are for marketing and public information. In real estate, homes are compared by proximity and likeness. As a Realtor, if I am comparing homes in order to establish a listing price or an offering price, I look at homes within 1/4 mile. Then the size of the home and the lot, along with amenities and number of bedrooms and bathrooms are taken into account.
I wouldn't be concerned for a moment by what homes Trulia or Zillow is comparing yours to... They don't have any influence on the value of your home. If you are trying to establish the market value of your home just because you are curious, then look at the recent sales (last 6 months) within your neighborhood. Find the homes that have similar number of bedrooms and bathrooms and comparable size... then you'll find the market value of your home.

Have a good evening,

Visit Kern County Sheriff Departement and Bakersfield police Department web sites for crime reports. Also, you might try the Bakersfield Californian

Since no link is visible, not easy to answer the question--therefore consider contacting any local realty office and inquire about the property--then go from there.

Do you have an address? Unless property is posted in MLS an agent won't be able to assist you.
