Hi Wendy,

According to my sources, it's a 55+ and up park. Are you looking to buy or rent? I can only suggest to expand your search to include apartments, condo's, residential homes, etc. I hope it's helpful.

Good luck!

Let me know if I could be of further assistance.

If you want answers from Realtors in CT, then redo this question and use a CT zip code. Typically, throughout the United States, a buyer of a short sale cannot be related to the seller.

Probably around $250 per square foot:
If you need a better answer than that; you should contact a CONTRACTOR, not a Realtor!

The reason things are put into writing is to avoid he said, she said confusion. You have confusion because nothing is in writing spelling it all out. If you had a lease the new owner would have to honor it until it expired. I think you will have to go. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
I've seen this many times:
Understand that Realtors do not give LEGAL advice, and you need to check with a Lawyer:
The Key is whether the actuall did file a LIEN on the House; the only way to be sure is to contact the Title Company: They should have a record of all Liens.
Most HOAs will not file a lien, because they know that it will be wiped out in a Foreclosure. As a private debt, they can sue you for everything up to another owner, (not the Bank,) taking possession.
And they will!

You will need a Lawyer, I repeat!

David Tapper answered:
Hi Tiffany,

If you saw someone moving in it probably means the transaction closed, but the "crappy" realtor you mentioned didn't post it sold in the MLS.

You can call the S.F. MLS and let them know if it would make you feel better.

Morgan Larson answered:
You'll need to check your original lease agreement. Your terms generally stay the same with the onset of a new owner, meaning that in this case the new owner would not need to give you an additional notice to move.

Your lease agreement may say something different. So please review agreement and speak to legal counsel with specific questions.

Cory La Scala answered:
I'm wondering why you didn't just ask the seller where the written disclosure is, if you already knew about the mold from your conversation together. If you knew about it, you could have asked the Seller to repair the damage and the issue that caused it. Read your contract. The answers you're looking for should be spelled out in the contract you agreed to. What is your agent saying? You never mentioned whether escrow already closed, or if you're still in your inspection and reports contingency period. I'd talk to your agent, that's what you hire them for. ... more

Robert Applegate answered:
Menlo and Burlingame are the two most expensive areas in your search criteria.
You will get more for your money in any City between the two you mention.
Each one is different, so you should look at what they have to offer and decide which one you think best fits your life style. School district does matter because it drives value and thus appreciation.
From an investment perspective I would say that you should get similar appreciation if you stick with the right neighborhoods.
All the best,

With 20% down you do not need pmi. Online lenders are dicey. You need a Sonoma county lender that realtors know. You are in a very competitive market and who you lender is can help or hurt you. Don't just compare by rate. You need to compare rate and the lenders fees On my website there is a free booklet that answers a ton of home buyer questions. ... more
