Terry Bell answered:
I think they make rooms look smaller, and nowadays the trend is towards open space and great rooms, even including the kitchen into the mix. Also, if you have any plans of selling in the future, you only narrow your buyer pool by not making the house as accessible and disability friendly as possible for the future, or maybe some new friends while you're still living there!. It doesn't sound like something you planned or wanted, so I vote to update the area! And when you're ready for a vacation home up here in the wine country, drop me a line! Best,

Hi Seanf,
How less than perfect is the score? I am able to offering financing to borrower's down to a 620 credit score through either FHA, VA (if you are eligible) and Fannie Mae. I would be happy to speak with you and go over your credit with you to determine what you can do to make impactful improvements to your score if necessary. I can be reached at 866.901.3570 and would be happy to assist you in anyway that I can.

Hi Alison,

Thank you for writing in. This is a great question. There are a few options available to the homeowner who is facing foreclosure. They are as follows:

For a temporary fix:
1. File Bankruptcy;

For a more permanent fix:
1. Contact your current lien holder to request a loan modification;
2. Contact your current lien holder to ask about a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure;
3. Foreclosure.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Thank you,

I am somewhat new to the BMR market in San Francisco but have found the process to be very straightforward and not nearly as complicated as some have claimed. I currently have a BMR unit on the market at 170 King Street and would be happy to assist anyone who may have a question regarding the process, etc.

Wish I could help you but I'm a San Diego based Manufactured Home dealer, real estate broker and contractor. Don't think I'd be able to help you much in Texas albeit I love your State.

I am not really sure what your question is after, San Francisco has a lot of people and not that many choices, many rentals get a lot of interest and only one party can rent.... I am not quite sure how they
can create more living space/homes without building up up and more up with earthquake safe construction, or expand home construction to the outskirts, which then will create commuting issues.

Lance King answered:
This is called staging, and it absolutely does make sense. Buyers often have little imagination, and properties that are staged will sell for more than a similar property that is empty.

Lance King answered:
They are similar in size, location, and year built, but Webster is much busier in that location than Buchanan is, so what it would come down to is condition, finishes, layout, and views.

However, whatever research you are doing, neither Zillow or Trulia are the best place to do it.

If you are thinking of selling, you want ALL the information of sold properties including off market sales, and if you are thinking of buying you want access to all properties. The best way to do that is to have an experienced, well connected broker with access to off market listings assist you.

We are all that and more. If you'd like to have a no strings consult our contact info is below:

If you have to ask yourself should I ? It's usually because you feel obligated to but don't want because you are afraid of the outcome.
Always disclose! Find a buyer that is okay with it and be done with it.
Would you rather keep secrets and have the potential of getting sued later?
Two rules in real estate: location, location, location and disclose, disclose , disclose !

I agree with Cary., AMSI will be your best source for short term leasing in San Francisco.
As well, you might want to check with other rental management companies, such as William Hill Property Management,

Jackie Cuneo answered:
This is the wrong question--the question should be, what is the reason you are considering a second mortgage?
1. Most seconds are put in place instead of having a higher first loan with mortgage insurance.
2. Many times the payment on the 2nd loan is actually less than the mortgage insurance payment would have been.
3. Many seconds are HELOC products, which can be paid down and reborrowed on later at a rate lower than most credit cards, and used for things like home improvements.
4. Often the interest on a 2nd mortgage is tax deductible (check with your cpa to confirm)
5. The primary reason clients will use a second mortgage is to purchase property with a lower downpayment. This allows them to become homeowners sooner, benefit from current low interest rates on the first loan, and start benefitting from the home interest tax benefits.
