Hi Izzyg,
When you say contingency phase are you really meaning Short Sale Contingent?

If you are meaning ss contingent then the answer is maybe.

Short sale cont' means that the seller has accepted an offer but that the lender has not approved the offer yet.

Since it is a short sale the lenders approval is needed.

If you are interested in putting in an offer on a contingent property your agent will need to call the listing agent to find out if they are accepting offers at this time.

If you are not represented by an agent and need help with this please call or email me, I will be glad to assist.

Ofelias,
You can buy a home, but you likely won't qualify for a mortgage. General lending guidelines require 2 years past the discharge of a Bk. During that 2 years, you need to re-establish credit and save up money for a down payment. ... more

Dear Gemini,

This is very unfortunate and unusual as most agents will keep their personal feelings to themselves in order to protect the interests of the client. If you truly feel this is getting in the way of a home you wish to purchase, call the broker in the office who manages this agent and complain. Something will be done to satisfy you. ... more

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Gemini - it's not the agent who may want to close in February - it's the SELLER who may have chosen that date. I am sure the agent would be happy to close as soon as possible, as that's when they get paid.

Also - To close by the end of the month (in just over 2 weeks) would take a lot of quick work - inspections, appraisal....title work, etc... not so sure that could be done as during a holiday season - things don't always move so quickly.

Anyway - if you want to know why the seller wants to close in February...... why don't you ask the agent.
Do you have your own agent?
if not, it might not be a bad idea to have your own agent so that you can have someone advocate for your interests.

So - what should you do?

Especially, if you are competing with another offer, then giving the seller the closing date they want isn't a big deal.

Have an agent negotiate for you....see if they can get the seller to compromise and close before February.
If you love the house - then why not wait the few extra weeks and buy it?
A 2 week closing at this time of year isn't really realistic .

Good luck !

Hello there,

Riverbank has many nice areas. The best thing to do is to visit my website at www.evabradley.com and search for homes your self. After you found a few homes that fits your needs, just call or send me a short note and we can go for viewing those homes inside. You can sign up for an instant notification on my website as well, that will send you an email everytime something in your range becomes available. Good luck in you search for the perfect home.

Lizzy, Unfortunately I do not see 3960 Clydesdale in Riverbank as being on the market. I do show 3948 Clydesdale as pending sale as of June 15th 2009 and it is also a 4 bd 3 bath with 1755 sqr feet.
This may be a home that is in the process of forclosure so it may come on the market down the road. If you would like to know about similar homes or would like to be put on an automated email list to notified of homes on the market feel free to drop me a line.
Hope this helps to answer your question.
Best of luck,
Tyler

There are different types of assessment taxes in different subdivisions located in Riverbank for schools and such. Some assessment taxes can be and may have already been paid off early by previous owners/builders. Check with the Stanislaus county tax assessor's office to find out for sure. You will need the assessor's parcel number of the specific property you are inquiring about The assessor's parcel number will be on you tax bill, or your REALTOR may be able to assist you in finding that. ... more

All foreclosures will have a price therefore the bank is not taking all kinds of offers.

Don Tepper answered:
This may be oversimplifying a bit. But:

Top priority goes to items that deal with your safety and the preservation of the value of the property. So: Broken doors. Broken windows. Leaking roof. Non-functional HVAC. Mold. Water seeping into the basement. New wiring, as needed.

Then focus on things that will improve the quality of your life. A lot of people wait too long to do these things, but you bought the house to live in. Maybe not all at once, but room by room. The kitchen, if you can afford it. Certainly the master bathroom. Maybe the other bathrooms, if your budget allows.

Then take your choice between upgrades--finishing the basement, for instance--or additional internal enhancements. But by the time you get to this stage, your home ought to be safe and sound, fully liveable, and even enjoyable.

Work out a budget. Determine what items fit into that first category, dealing with your safety and security. That's got to be your top priority, and done as soon as possible. Even there, though, you may have to prioritize, based on your budget. But have a definite, clear plan in place to take you through all three stages.

Hope that helps.

Travis Heilman answered:
Riverbank will recover about as quickly as the rest of the local market (north/east Modesto). There is plenty of supply and demand has increased in the last couple of months. We will continue to see more foreclosures in the coming months because of the sheer number of loans that are scheduled to reset soon. If you're selling, you should have a pressing need to do so...If you're buying, it's really a great time because of the selection of homes that are available and the affordability of interest rates.
