Yes... When you see a foreclosure on Trulia and it has a Realty Trac Logo you see the amount of the loan balance. The question is what do you want to do with that information... Buy? If so, you have to know that there are Several Stages of Foreclosure and Realty Trac doesn't differentiate what level when they report (it's part of the service you pay for when you sign up with them).

If you are looking to buy Foreclosures you should:
1 - Hook up with a Real Estate Agent who is a foreclosure specialist / super knowledgeable (there is no legal title of specialist)

2 - learn the laws of Foreclosure in your state

3 - Go to a few Auctions with your Agent to see what is done and how it works...

Put together a strategy to purchase

Raziel Ungar answered:
Ray Park and the Easton Addition are both excellent neighborhoods. Ray Park has Franklin Elementary and the Easton Addition has Lincoln and Roosevelt, which are three of the top schools in Burlingame. Schools are walking distance too in each of these areas. While Ray Park is mostly ranch-style one level homes, and the occasional larger two story, the Easton Addition has more of the classic look that many Burlingame buyers look for, with its tree lined streets and old world architecture feel. You can generally save up to a couple hundred thousand dollars by buying in Ray Park over Easton - it just depends on your preference on neighborhood feel and if it is more important to be closer to Broadway and The Ave or Millbrae and easy 280 access. The same house in the Easton Addition and in Ray Park would appreciate slightly faster in the Easton Addition (and in Burlingame Park, just off Burlingame Avenue). The most popular street in Burlingame for trick-or-treating is arguably Cortez...parents put out heat lamps and sip wine, and every house is decked out - and it's in the Easton Addition. Having grown up in Burlingame, I can honestly say both areas are great options. Good luck to you.

It is a good time to buy. It is a good investment for you. Lately I am seeing multiple offers now. But the time people figure out the bottom of the market it is long gone.

I just heard Liberty Saving's will do it if he is self employed. I don't have contact info for them or I would give it to you. I would google their wholesale division. You better thank me if it closes!

Vicki Moore answered:
I don't have time right now to run the statistics for Burlingame but my belief is that prices are not dropping in all areas and all price ranges. Prices are adjusting for homes that are generally in a first time buyer range; those who were able to get a loan last year are no longer able.

The prices of homes that attract buyers who have a deposit and are easily able to obtain a loan are climbing. Areas such as Burlingame, Foster City, San Carlos are not declining in price.

Taking a quick look, there are several very nice homes in Easton, not new construction but beautiful just the same. There's a vacant lot with approved plans for 1.5.

Mario Pinedo, Ccim answered:
The best answer will come from looking at a satellite view of the county. There is very little developable land between the Bay and the mountains along 280. A huge impact can be attributed to Stanford Unversity in Palo Alto. Finally, San Mateo County is the only non-bridge escape from San Francisco. So those tired of SF and looking for warmth and back yards will choose south of SF as the place to go. ... more

In most cases, that master policy does not cover your contents or even and damage inside of your unit. You will a copy of the master policy for your insurance agent to review and suggest the appropriate level of coverage. Some of my clients have chosen just to use the Master Policy, but it is not something I reccommend. ... more

Proximity to Hillsborough. I lived there for years and didn't like it all that much. Quiet if you're away from ElCamino.

I would say Valley Fair. Everything you need is there, and you have Santana Raw across the street. That's where you can sit down, relax, get a drink, look at what you picked up in the mall, realize you don't need it, and return that same day. Save yourself a trip back.

Define "affordable." :) No, seriously, real estate across the Bay Area is just darn expensive, no way around it. There are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of people, with high salaries who can afford -- sometimes just barely -- the homes, so they keep on selling. ... more

I'm pretty sure a few other peninsula foothill towns allow horse properties. Usually the cutoff is the size of the lot and zoning. Something like one acre+. Los Altos Hills is an example of such a case. ... more
