People used to refinance their homes frequently because they were inflating and people would draw off their equity. They would then often purchase big ticket items, cars, boats, trips, etc. This was what was driving our economy before the recent real estate inflationary bubble went and burst. Now you would only refinance for lower interest rates. However, many people are upside-down on their homes and the amount owed cannot be refinanced because the property won't appraise for the amount owed. That is why many people are making a business decision to walk away from homes that are way too upside-down. So the answer to your basic question is "No." You should never set a fixed time for refinancing. It should be judged by your total economic condition and whether it makes economic sense to do so. ... more

This depends on two things:
1) Who was/is on the title of the home?
2) Who was/is on the mortgage that encumbers the title?

What happens next depends on the answers to these two. If you'd like to discuss more, just get in touch and I can help you figure it out.

A visit to your county recorders office will get you the info as to what the status is with the property. It is most likely a foreclosure that the bank is just sitting on until the market improves a bit. ... more

Hi Teresa,

I am in home financing and I'm not quite sure I understand your question. If you need help with your loan pre-approval for a purchase (or just to see how much you can afford), I am happy to help.

Thank you,

barbarak answered:
Generally you are buying property "AS IS" condition in foreclosure, however you do have the right to inspect the property either yourself if you are confident or use an inspection service. At that point you have the right to not go through with the purchase if major defects are discovered. It is always urged that you get your own home inspections, prior to purchase. Sometimes you can renegotiate with the bank owned property. ... more

Here are two websites to help you out. The first is called and it shows statistical results of crime based on FBI submitted reports.

This one is called the Great Schools website:

.......has detailed information regarding schools and even has a place where consumers can leave comments about their personal experience regarding an individual school. The Idyllwild Arts Academy has a high rating. I personally have always liked Idyllwild because of it's mountain and small town feel, but this is my personal opinion.
