I sold 406 Glen Eagles a couple of years ago for $275,000. It was a bank owned and needed alot of work. It was reduced to $275,000 because that is what the appraisal came in at and the bank had to take it. However, today it's anyones guess. It all has to do with the homes sold, condition of the property, the square footage and of course the location which is beautiful. The most important thing to do is get an honest professional real estate agent that will do comparables that sold in the area within the last 60 to 90 days. Today, real estate is like a bad week on the stock market. It's going up and down like crazy. I feel for the appraisers who are trying to compete with the bank owned properties and the short sales, as they are distressed properties, which should not compare with a regular sale, however, in some cases they are unable to come up with an true value.
Having said that, the true value is what has sold in the area and is comparable to 405 Glen Eagles Court. One more thing. The inventory is low and that would help anyone who is trying to sell at this time.
I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Margaret Forsythe

Hello Christinaturk,

To be honest - you may have some problems still. I would recommend sitting down and speaking with a lender in Nevada - not California. A direct lender who works with a local REALTOR in the area you are relocating too.

You may have to rent or possibly you can find a Lease Option, where a portion of your monthly lease payment is allocated towards a future downpayment, and increase your 4% downpayment savings.

Speak with a lender, and get the best advise, and you don't have to settle for the first lender you speak with, talk to 2 or 3, just to make sure you get the whole picture.

I wish you the best of luck in your move, and I hope when you have received an answer that you can live with you'll share the results with us here on

Thank you and good luck.

I'm not in your area, so I can't answer your question. However, if you are serious about buying, your best bet is to find a local REALTOR to work with you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to set up a search in the local MLS, based on your own personal criteria. The MLS is the most accurate source of information. Sites like Trulia, Zillow,, etc. are notorious for not having the most up to date listings.

Your agent will take you out to look at properties you're interested in, determine fair market value, explain the pro's and con's of each, and guide you through the entire process from negotiating the offer, to tile search, to inspection, to closing, etc. If you need the name of someone in your area, let me know. Good luck!

There are a lot of options and I am not sure you are legally limited to safe investments, however you should be sticking to safe investments.

I am on the board of a condo association and we done some investing in municipal bonds. I think a lot of investor grade bonds would be a reasonable place to look. You will get a much better rate of return compared to CDs and still be relatively safe. ... more

The seller doesn't look at the loan your agent will though. The EMD you propose to put down be it $1000 or $1500 just shows good faith that you are definitely interested in purchasing and have a loan in place. I would not put the money up though until the buyer accepts your offer. Unless you are certain your loan is approved and that the seller is accepting your offer do not offer any EMD unless your agent strongly suggests it. You may be chasing it down if the deal goes south!!! A VA loan is the same as any other loan accept for the discounts on closing and lending fees. Hope this helps. ... more

I would consult a local realtor. You can go under the Find a Pro section under Advice and Opinions up top. See if there are any local realtors who can help you out.

Using some of those home pricing websites is not the best thing. They are not accurate.
