When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

You question is not clear. Who will be buying the house? Who will be on title? What type of loan are you getting? What do you mean "have 50% over the house"?

Feel free to call me with your questions, or just clarify what you are asking in this thread. Hope to hear from you soon and Dare to Dream.

Hi James,
I can't answer specifically about that particular house, but I can tell you the reason most homes stay on the market too long and that is price. If the price looks good to you, I would recommend that you contact an excellent Realtor to take a look at the property for you. We are trained to see "red flags" and to protect you from getting into problems with Real Estate.
Best of Luck to you

I believe we didn't sign the removal of all contingency through out the whole process, is it true that we can still back out at the last minute and take our deposit back.
We had file the claim against the escrow company, the agent and the seller in the small claim court, we want our deposit back.
The seller, which is the defendant turn around and ask for her loss for $7500. Because we delayed for 3 months not closing the deal, and causing seller loss $7500 by discount the price for quick sale. And on the paper from the court, there's a number stated NEW SOLD PRICE, which minus our offering price is $7500. I understand the maximum claim in the small claim court is also 7500. My question is can the seller accept other offer and close the deal when my deposit has already tied up her property.
How possible can the seller win base on her claim, loss 7500 by discount the price for quick sale?
We didnt sign the removal of all contingency, can we back out from the deal and get the deposit back?
Agent and the realtor company refuse to give us a copy of all the documents with our signature on. I was told what they're doing is against the law.
We had already filed complained to DRE and BBB.

Emily Knell answered:
It is rare that a seller will have a home inspection performed prior to putting a home on the market and I don't think it would be helpful to have a home inspection from an owner especially if the inspection was performed more than a year to several years ago.

An agent "refusing" to give up information that could be useful to a buyer, I believe to be unethical.

The only thing the seller MUST provide to you is a Transfer Disclosure Statement, this is NOT a replacement of you ordering your Own inspection. This document is only "to the best of the sellers knowledge". In my opinion, it doesn't mean squat.

The seller must provide you this Transfer Disclosure statement within 5 days of contract acceptance.

***Please always order your Own home inspection.

I just checked the MLS for you and the status is PENDING SALE. It will probably be closing escrow any day now.

Are there other properties you are interested in? Would you like to have listings emailed to you?

Happy homehunting!

The property is not worthless when it has a shared drive way. This is common is Rural areas where there is one long street connecting several properties. This is called an easement, where all property owners have use of the driveway. ... more

You would need to have a title report prepared on them. I would also recommend you hire a realtor or attorney to fill out the legal CARPA paperwork. There are many clauses that you really need to understand inside and out.
