Yes, it is still required one per floor. They should be located near the bedrooms. The reason is that because of attached garage and vehicles carbon monoxide can still get into your home. This law is for your safety. Hope this helps! ... more

Mello Roos are not city by city nor zip code by zip code.
In Canyon Lake for the most part there aren't mello roos however prior to putting in an offer, you should check on a particular address with the county to be sure.

There are currently 5 condos listed as Active in our local MLS, however they indicate 1 garage space, not 2... Send me an email at info@BWestRealty.com and I will set up the MLS to email you directly when condos in Canyon Lake that fit your need are available.

I look forward to helping you find something perfect!

Yes, each lot has obligations to the Property Owners Association (POA). Each lot must pay the monthly assessment as part of ownership. Check out my webpage: www.canyonlakeconnection.com - see Property Owners Association, in there you will find the rules and regulations for all of Canyon Lake and all that it offers its owners. ... more

Everyone one of them inside the community walls. There are neighborhoods outside the city walls that are part of canyon lake but I'm not sure if they have access to the lake or pay hoa dues. You can contact the canyon lake POA to find out for sure. ... more

Osideres,

Boy, even if we as agents could give projections, (which we are NOT allowed to do), it would be near impossible.

It boils down to that good 'ole "Crystal Ball" scenario.

If you are looking to "buy" or "sell" in Canyon Lake, the best avenue to take is to contact a local Realtor that could provide you with a list of comp's for the area over the past 3, 6, 9, 12 or more months so you could see where the market was, and where the market "is" today.

With historically low interest rates in effect, you may not want to over-analyze the market and worry about the 6-8 month projection, but start previewing properties so you can see the individual differences in the properties. Canyon Lake is a very unique area with many differences in home layouts & locations. Beautiful view's and a very security tight community. Awesome living!

Best of Luck.
Kathy

Hello: Canyon Lake is a unique community because of the differences in prices, architecture, style and location of the homes.

The waterfront homes that are listed for sale are mostly "Standard" sales and there are not very many short sales or foreclosures right on the water.

Occasionally, there are very modest homes on the water starting at approximately $300,000. The really breathtakingly beautiful water front homes are all priced $1,000,000 and up. There are many really beautiful homes in Canyon Lake and there is something for everyone.

There was a recent sale on 8/11/09, an absolutely georgous water front home that sold for $1,500,000 - Cash. So let's go shopping for you!!! :)

Hi Kamlesh.

I am very familiar with the Canyon Lake area. I lived in Corona until just a few years ago and had several friends who lived in that gated community. I also have sold a few homes in there.

As a real estate agent, we are not allowed to answer on whether or not an area is "good" or " bad" or "safe." The best way to find out those types of things is to drive around the neighborhood and see what you think. Talk to a few of the neighbors that might be out front of their homes. As far as safety is concerned, you can call the local law enforcement agency and get the crime statistics for the area.

Projections? Really hard to say and I do not think anyone can accurately predict the future of real estate. However, it is a versatile community since it has a usable lake and is not that far from larger main cities.

I would be more than happy to help you in your search for a home or property or answer any other questions you might have. Feel free to email or call me directly.

Sincerely,

Matt McClain

If you used an agent to rent the property, contact them first for advice. If not, contact the owner in writing and then consult legal counsel. If they are in foreclosure, chances are you are not getting your deposits back. ... more

Kathy answered:
I would suggest contacting an attorney/legal aide in your community right away so they can advise you of your rights and of how you should proceed. You may have to continue making your rent payments but the money will probably be put in an escrow account with the court or the mortgage lender. However they advise you, make sure you keep good records and the lines of communication open between you and all parties involved in this process. Good luck to you! ... more

I would contact the landlord immediately to get the "real" scoop (as well as a property manager if you used one) and also start looking for a new place to live. If a property is to be sold due to foreclosure, the tenant must be notified first; but I wouldn't take the chance. Also, check with your local Clerk of Courts and read up on the tenant/landlord laws for your area. It pays to be an informed renter. Good luck! ... more

Sean Giorgianni answered:
There are several auction companies ... and they're not limited by zip code. Two of the bigger ones are Hudson and Marshall and U.S. Home Auction.

You absolutely get to preview the home. You can do that by watching for the Auction Open House or by contacting an agent to get you inside.

The homes are vacant. The banks will not market a house until it's vacant (either through walkaways, cash for keys, or eviction).

Be careful with auctions. The contracts are usually written in such a way as to limit your contingencies and punish you if you do not close (for any reason).

Auctions are not for the weak. Attend a few before you buy. Get your financing approved BEFORE the auction. Visit the house with a good inspector beforehand. Know your comps too!

The thing is, a good agent can get you the same auction price with better contingency protection. But if you do it often enough, and know your markets and comps, you can occasionally find a good buy quicker than writing offers the traditional way.

Don't be afraid to work with a good agent. We get paid on auctions too ... I've helped several clients that way. Then you get the benefit of knowing what all the paperwork is really saying and, more importantly, what the disclosures mean.

Thanks for the opportunity to answer your question and compete for your business. If I can help with anything else, please feel free to contact me directly at 951-571-9229 or sean.giorgianni@gmail.com
