The city is still working out its debt issues and being allowed to declare bankruptcy will help in righting the ship. As far as the housing market, now is an excellent time to buy. Low interest rates and affordable housing make it a great time to buy. Weston Ranch is an area that your dollars can go a long way.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give me a call.

Trulia has a great crime stats tool which is a great reference to the amount and types of crimes in a particular area. Check it out here:

I recently wrote a blog about it. See the link below.

Hi Tare531,

When you say your offer was accepted, do you mean by the seller or by BOTH the seller and their lender(s)?

Hello Bacbinh,

Yes, it's a great time to invest in Stockton. There are many areas of Stockton that may be better or worse than others, especially long-term.

When it comes to real estate...You make money when you buy, and you collect it when you sell.

If you make a smart purchase, then it's definitely a great time right now.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Good luck with your investing!

Probably not. Expect to pay closer to $1000 per month for a 3/1 house. This area is in high demand.
You may find something cheaper but will be further away and in areas that are not so nice. ... more

The listing still shows as active but there are issues with getting access since the home is tenant occupied. It could be possible that your agent contacted the agent of the listing and was told that the home already had an accepted offer.

No, I am sorry. This mobile home went into contract with a buyer just over a week ago. There are others available in the same park. Let me know if you'd be interested in more information about any of them and I'll see to it that you receive it.

Michael Abram answered:
Helo Joel,

Fannie & Freddie are pretty set on their guidelines for no lending with a foreclosure on your record at 2 years. However, I work with a portfolio lender that will entertain a loan with this scenario, depending on the overall profile for the individual. I just completed a loan for a borrower than had a foreclosure on his record for only 18 months!

If you would like more information, please feel free to contact me, or you can read my blog entry I recently wrote about this subject.

Have a great day.

No he does not have to, however most clients are not opposed to their realtor being present especially if he/she was instrumental in them getting the home in the first place.

I work with a banker, she's a miracle worker. I don't think a Mod has to be 3 years ols, a foreclosure does. I just sold a home to a client, it's a second home, their current home had a Mod a year or so ago. Contact me and I'll give the contact info for my banker friend. I'm sure she can help you, if not now, soon, she will tell you exactly where you stand.

The best thing to do is to contact the County Tax Collector. They should be able to provide information as to the length of the bond. Make sure to have your APN number handy.

I hope this helps,

Randy Elliott answered:
Hi Valeri,

Sorry for your situation.

What was the scam? Were you rented a place that actually wasn't for rent and you paid money already? That happens often on many sites, especially Craigslist.

Your best bet most likely would be to contact the police and even an atty.
