Hi dquisenberry,
Your local town clerk, building permit department, or tax assessor may have the square footage on file for your apartment. Or your landlord may have records on the layout of the structure. I suggest that you inquire first with your landlord.

Best wishes!

Brea Mall is approx 18 miles. From Hemlock, plan for 1/2 hour because of time needed to get to the freeway. Maybe a little less, but not much.

If I can be of any help, please let me know.

Hello Joanna,

Chino Hills would be a better option and price range does vary greatly in the area. I would more than glad to help you to explain in further detail.

Chino Hills is probably the safest community in San Bernardino County. It consistently has the lowest or close to the lowest crime rate. Schools are very good. Some of the best in the state for elementary.

As far as LGBT, in general Chino Hills is a conservative community. I have never heard of any concerns regarding LGBT.

I call Chino Hills, the Irvine of San Bernardino County. Its a nice place to live.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Any answers I could offer would be guesses. I presume this is a short sale and they can take anywhere from 2-6 months on average. Good luck.

Don't pass up the importance of a brokerage that offers good training. There's a lot to learn. Typically, the big names are known for training...Keller Williams, Prudential, Coldwell Banker, and Century 21.

I started at C21 and in my second year moved on to a lower cost brokerage....this first year is a time for learning...Good luck.

Hello Diedra,

The home on Marble Ridge does not seem to be for sale. On occasion, Trulia picks up information on homes in pre-foreclosure as a notice of default or trustee sale date is recorded and becomes public record. This is likely the case here as a Notice of Trustee Sale Date was recorded in August. I can explain further if you'd like more information or if you need any assistance in finding homes similar to this, I can be reached at (909) 954-4556.

It does look like that home has an accepted offer on it already. The MLS shows it in a "back-up" status. This means an offer has been accepted, but you can submit a back-up offer in case the first offer falls through for some reason. Would you like to submit a back-up offer? If so you can reach me at 909-938-9568. Make it a great day! ... more

Larry Hodel answered:
Yes....rental prices have been going up steadly for the past few years. The reason two fold: mainly the number of people wanting to rent has increased due to foreclosures. When someone loses their home to foreclosure they usually have to rent for at least 2 years before they may be able to buy another home. Secondly, most experts say the bottom on home prices has occured and home prices are increasing. As home prices increase, so do the prices to rent them so the owners can break even or make a profit.

Aldo Baltodano answered:
Rehab America sounds like a non-profit agency. Seller's have the right to accept a lower offer. Some of my seller's have accepted less money for better qualifying buyer's such as a cash buyer. If they intend to rehab the property for resale then your best approach will be to visit the site when work is being done and ask for the name and number of the owner.

Feel free to contact me directly with further questions. I'm a local agent who specializes in investment properties. I can help your son with his continued search for a great deal on a condo.

Brian Rayl answered:
Not sure how it works in California, but in Texas Section 8 does not provide a list of "homes for rent". It simply allows you to go through the process to get your home approved for Section 8 tenants. You are still responsible for listing and renting your home. They just provide you with their portion of the rent each month.

You may want to speak with an agent who is familiar with rentals and more specifically Section 8 rentals and get some guidance from them.

Best of luck to you

Some agents will send in only the accepted offer, while others will send in all offers and let the bank decide. Your agent can help you navigate these waters. Are you working with a competent short sale agent? ... more

Yes. The new title just needs to be recorded in the county where the home is located. Perhaps you can find a title agent in that county to do it for you.

Dan Tabit answered:
Not really. A contract requires all parties to be in complete agreement. If one party can unilaterally change terms, then it’s really not worth much. The question now becomes what to do about it.
My first question is, could this work for you? That's just one week away and you likely have movers lined up, your loan period locked and plans made. What happens if you change any of this? If there are costs, you need to pass them along to the seller or keep the original date.
Another option is to close on time, but do a short term rent back. This may solve loan lock issues, but does create a new set of problems, namely what if they still don't leave? You may then be required to go through a timely and expensive eviction process. While this is a worst case scenario, it has happened to people.
I strongly encourage you to sit down with your agent and go over everything. There are options you may consider, but lots more information is necessary to properly advise you. Best of luck.

Bill Eckler answered:
If paying "cash" nobody cares about your credit history.

Many people experiencing credit issues are seeking creative means by which to own their own property. Consider persuing "owner financing" or "lease purchase" opportunities.

Good luck,
