In general, since this is not our area of expertise, we highly recommend you go over their recent sales and or current listings. It is all too common to work with a realtor that is not aware of pocket listings that are not on the MLS service, or for a realtor to pursue home owners that may not be looking to sell, but have interest in it. We do recommend having a realtor that specializes in a particular area precisely for this purpose. ... more

Hello PENNY,

How are you? my name is Danny Chen with Tarbell Realtors DRE# 01906909.
Due to the low inventory of homes, for the last 6 month+. Buyers are having a hard time purchasing the homes.

Factors that might affect your offer being accepted:
How are you planning to finance the new home purchase?
FHA, Conventional or Cash?
Are you Offering the right price for the homes?

If you already have a good agent, you should just stick with him/her.
If Not please give me call, I would like to know your family and situation better so that I can do my best to assist you in finding your dream home, thank you.

I see that you've posted you're looking to buy utilizing your friends 401k although further details regarding your inquiry would help me to answer your question, i.e. is the $15k from your friend? Are you the person with the "Very Good Credit & Stable Income?" Your inquiry ended with "working as..." nothing noted after.

Have you been pre-approved for a loan? If you are using your friends 401k for the down payment, this would be noted as a "gift", if she's not on the loan, etc. there are many other details that would need to be explained in using a friends money towards a down, which requires a gift letter, etc. I can explain what this involves in a clear and precise fashion if we have the chance to speak.

If you're looking for questions on what is the best and next step to take with a loan approval or locating property, and you have specific questions, please feel comfortable to contact me. I'll be glad to help.

It is rare for a subordinate lien to foreclosure , although it does occur. If they simply sold the note and no trustee sale occurred, your options are wide open .
Please clarify your equity position , neg or pos, and names of lien holders. ... more

Leanne Austin answered:
You could work out a deal with a home owner to do a rent to own. There are not a lot of those opportunities out there right now, but they do exist. Better to work on your credit and get that in gear. It can be done quickly. Most home owners and even landlords are going to want to see you improving your credit in order to go into contract with you either on a lease or a lease to own.

Hope that helps

Craig Chastain answered:

Your base property tax would be 1.0% however you do have some special assessments and mello roos that equate to approximately another 1% more. So your total taxes paid would be approximately 2% annual on the assessed value of the home.

If you have any further questions please feel free to give me a call.

Leanne Austin answered:
Contacting a title company is one way, there are also many resources online that could provide you with that information. With vacant land, it may be a little more difficult.
Any agent can typically provide that information to you as well.
I'd be happy to do so for you.
Please contact me with the information on your property and the location of the vacant land in comparison and I'll get you the info you are seeking. It is all public record.

you can reach me either by text or calling 951.205.2657, or email at

Hi Lisa,

2 things; There is no property listed in which you are referring to, and the phone number has one too many numbers in it.

I can say though, that depending upon your current credit/income/debt scenario loans can be as low as 0.5% or 0% down for VA

Please call me or message me back.

Thank you.

Hi Rich,

We have 1 - 3 bedroom condos and townhomes in Corona ranging from $80,000 to $390,000.
I am sure I could find her something nice. I agree a townhome or condo would be best since the rental space at the mobile parks is usually pricey whereas the HOA fees are usually more reasonable than mobile park space rent.

Let me know how many bedrooms, what her price range is and any other pertinent criteria and I will be happy to assist her.

Somewhere between 2 and 8%.
First of all; we don't know what you've negotiated in your Contract.
Then, we don't know your fees
Add to that, we don't know your propertie's previous taxes.
Then, if your Escrow closes in June, you'll only prepay 1 month's prepaid taxes,
but if it doesn't close until July, they will nick you 6 month's worth.

Your Realtor should guide you to your Escrow Officer who can do a hypothetical HUD1.
You are smart enough to be using a Buyer's Agent; right?

Carlene Blair answered:
Homeowners associations are created to protect and enforce the rules and regulations of the community. I advise you to talk with the association either by calling the president or attend a community meeting to voice your opinion. If the rules specifically state that you can't park in the driveway, then don't. If the rule is general and not specific, contest it at the meeting. (Please read your rules and regulations to know for sure, even if it sounds ridiculous.) ... more

Rich Conley answered:
Hello Swabby,

Many many reasons this could have happened. The most common occurs after the first year of owning a home. Impound accounts are usually reviewed annually. If it was discovered you were not paying enough, they may have had to adjust.

Additionally, many local government entities have the ability to draw money for projects and they usually find it from property taxes.

Some county assessors may use a three year period for evaluating home prices which can cause a delay in adjusting property taxes.

I have found, on several occassions, the county assessor's office is very helpful with explaining any given situation.

I would start by visiting this website for additional information.

Have a great day!
