Jason,

Lakeside Village and Raintree have 24 hour security and are very safe. They are well maintained and quiet. They both have wonderful amenities. Let me know if you are interested in any of them. I have been working in these communities as well as Tara Hill for some time now. Approximately 25% of the community rent.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Cute picture!! Stephanie I know you want to be near the beach, but the prices there are high and high prices mean a high payment. And the fact that your FICO scores are not too high, that makes it an issue with your interest rate. You should really speak with a realtor and find out what you can do. One good thing though, with the foreclosure market being what it is you can get a great deal as long as you have someone that is willing to go the extra mile for you. Culver City has not dropped in price too much but with the right agent you can get a deal. Please speak with someone that knows short sales and foreclosures, especially since you need a lot of direction. Please e-mail me if you have further questions dyannaavila@hotmail.com.

Good Luck!
Dyanna

L.A. Real Estate Group answered:
Hi Amy,
Let me start by telling you that the info on Realty Trac is not always updated or accurate. We have access to pre foreclosures (NOD) as well as foreclosures and short sales. The way it works is we contact the owner to see if they are interested in working through a short sale to help them out of their situation. Most sellers are happy to hear they have another option other than foreclosure, especially when it a qualified buyer. We can find more info for you on the property if you send us an email with the address and info needed. We have had a deal go through just days before the auction was set. Banks rather settle for a sure thing than auctioning off at the court house steps. Once it gets to the auction, it is only available to all cash offers...which limits the number of qualifiying buyers even further.
You can find out more about us at www.myLARealEstateGroup.com
Good Luck to you

Maggie, your REALTOR® answered:
Hello Christine,

Thank you for your follow up and I wish you the very best as a new home owner. My only advice is that whatever has been told to you verbally, please ask for a written confirmation of what you have been told and is your understanding that all is ok.

I would advise that you send an email to both the bank/lender and your agent restating your understand that the issue has been resolved and that you have been assured by both the bank and your agent that the counter has made up for the $12K difference between the appraisal and the purchase price.

This should give suffice and be written confirmation of what was said and done to the best of your understanding and knowledge.

All the very best!

Maggie in Long Beach!

Hello Christine,

If the appraisal comes back less then the purchase price you have three options. You can try to get another appraisal. You can ask the seller for a reduction in the purchase price or you can walk away.
Good luck on your purchase! My advice is to try to get the lender to agree to a second appraisal.

Best,

Monique Carrabba

Albert Johnson answered:
when a home is sold that doesnt need court confirmation, the price is negotiable. if it was a court confirmation sale, the court would have sent out a court refferee & they would have set a value on the home. the court then can accept an offer no more than 10% less than that appraisal, subject to court confirmation & any overbids on the day of court confirmation. ... more

Culver Crest is a great area. The prices may seem high to you but Culver City is a desirable area. Not the suburbs and right in the heart of Western LA. The Culver Crest is a neighborhood in Culver City, California. It is bordered on the south by the Beverlywood West condominiums, located at Sawtelle Boulevard and Overland Avenue, by West Los Angeles College on the north, by Overland Avenue on the west, and by the Holy Cross Cemetery and the Baldwin Hills on the east/southeast. On the corner of Sawtelle and Overland. Culver City also boasts Sony Studios which has made living in the area and homes there highly desirable. Unlike other areas of Los Angeles, Culver City has actually gone up 5% in 2007 over 2006. The medium home price in Culver City as of 12/31/2008 is 740,000. ... more
