Hi Susan,
First make sure the condo complex is approved for FHA financing. Many complexes are not.
Good luck,

This is a real estate website. I can't help you with cars. Perhaps you can open up an account at a credit union.

I would suggest having your agent ask the seller for an extension. If you are doing this yourself, you could have your lender contact the seller on your behalf. That way, the seller can feel more comfortable with giving you an extension. ... more

Hello Charlie, I was able to find 3 Los Gatos rentals on the MLS. You can view them from this secure link to a .PDF document:
The first two might consider pets and the third does not allow pets. Very few rental properties are listed on the MLS. You may have a wider range of options by searching here on Trulia in their RENT section and Craigslist is a good resource for rentals as well. Kind regards.

I find Craig's list to be the best source of rentals. Are you familiar with it? If not, I am happy to help.

Dear Animalfarm,

The Las Miradas area, although within Los Gatos school district, is not as highly regarded as the rest of Los Gatos for several reasons. It is on the edge of Los Gatos near condos, power towers, and highway 880 (aka 17). It also sits slightly lower than the rest of Los Gatos and there are still quite a few rental properties that need some careful maintenance. However, you can get a decent home with Los Gatos schools for under a million in this area. Plus some homes on Las Miradas have access to Los Gatos Creek Trail directly from the backyard; the trail leads to Vasona Park. So, if you are a runner or a biker or a walker, a great place to live. You will find an excellent value here. Contact us to learn more about various neighborhoods of Los Gatos.

Great question. Prestige of the name Los Gatos. Not all Cambrian Park homes go to Alta Vista. But in general it is simply the town of Los Gatos verses the city of San Jose address.

I can't help you on Trulia side, however, our local MLS will allow me to set you up with a search by streets. Perhaps they are integrating that features and it's not fully functional yet.

In the meantime if you would like me to help you, let me know.

All the best.

Sounds like you need to ask your REALTOR or your attorney that question. We don't know the details of the contract or the transaction and can't give you a definite answer.

Buy cash. You will need to close in 30 days no if's and's or but's. The only safe way to go is to buy cash and re-fi after you own. Anything else and you put your deposit at risk. ... more

Gail Thomson answered:
The last one on the market on Rochin just went pending. Linda and Rochin are a little less "crazy" by virtue of the fact they're a little further along Blossom Hill but they're still popular.

There's a new listing coming in the manor which may be listed over your budget initially but it might come down closer to your range if my hunch is correct. What are you looking for? Do the current Manor options not work for you right now? There's also Marchmont which just dropped its price and Hilow (off Shannon).

As for the name, I'm not sure if it has it's own name, it's right between the manor and Blossom Crest but doesn't really fall in either.

I'll ask around and see if anyone knows of anything coming up in that neighborhood.

Pat Chadwell answered:
That is a hard question to answer. Before you tear down the property I would check the appropriate county to find out buidling restrictions. They might let you build on the land using some part of the original structure and if torn down you might be out of luck. I really would head to the county planning depart. They will give you a lot of information.

John Souerbry answered:
In this area, a common value used for preliminary construction budgeting is $350 per square foot. That can go up or down based upon the design and quality of your project. Recommend you sketch out a general concept and get bids from at least 3 builders. You will also want to see an architect first to take your sketch to a better set of drawings that a builder can quote to. ... more
