Hi Jennifer,

I just commented on your Rancho question. Fontana is also very good. I would focus more on the 92336 zip code though. I would say to stay at or below $350,000 to still receive a 7% cap rate. ... more

These would all be questions that should be directed towards your Realtor (listing agent). They should be able to better answer these questions than us. Every process and house is different.

Best of luck!

This is like asking; how long is a piece of wood?
You need to contact some contractors; and they would have to see the wall.
There are too many variables.
I wouldn't trust anyone who would guess.

Good luck and may God bless

Hello Carrie,

How long ago was the foreclosure? To find the ultimate answer you would have to contact VA and request a dd-214 and ask for eligibility.

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

Hi Moreno,

You're about half way there! You can qualify for an FHA loan 2 years after filing bankruptcy so long as your credit is good.
Meanwhile, lets create a savings plan. Take the next 1 year to save up the maximum you can and put those funds towards a down payment and other related expenses in purchasing a home. Would you like to stay in Fontana or do you have any other city in mind?

I would love to assist you further, please contact me at (909)210-1570 or email me at bhatiamgr@gmail.com

Best Regards,

Thomas Bohlmann answered:
In most cases that is the seller should move out 3 days BEFORE closing ( what you are calling escrow). This allows the sellers to clean and the buyer to do a walk through inspection.

However, if the sellers need to stay for a few days after closing, a lease of fair market value with security deposit should be in place prior to closing.

If you are renting the house that is being sold, then yes you do have an obligation to your land lord.

if that house will remain a rental for the new buyer, then you lease should transfer to the new buyer.

Ask your land lord those last two questions.

Good luck

Hello Joe,

In essence you will get more for you money in 92336 because typically the price per square foot is less. I specialize in both areas, so feel free to give me a call if you have any further questions or would like to go out and start looking at homes.

Thank you.

Don Tepper answered:
You'd use an agent, not a broker.

To oversimplify, the broker is the "boss." He/she has a real estate license and may still be actively involved in assisting buyers and sellers. Often, though, they're now more into the management function of running the office. There are additional qualifications and tests required to become a broker.

An agent is involved in helping clients as his/her sole focus. He/she obviously has a real estate license as well.

Hope that helps.

It depends on what type of home you are purchasing and your type of financing. If it is a regular sale and normal financing estimate 30 days.

All the best to you.

Much will depend on the circumstances that led you to foreclosure, your current income, credit, debt, etc;, generally it can take two to seven years; therefore visit with any loan officer(s) for accurate answers as they apply to your situation. ... more

talk to an immigration attorney about the types of visa you may be eligible for.Get that taken care of, then find a good agent or maybe a commercial one and a residential one in the area you want to live
Happy hunting!

If you don't have an agent, do protect yourself and consider utilizing the services of an attorney who specilizes in real estate--Do keep in mind that an agent of your own, won9;t cost you any commission--the seller pays out of the proceeds of the sale--if two agents are involved in the transaction, the commission is shared --it will only cost you commission if you have an agreement with your agent to pay above what the seller is paying. ... more

Felix Hung answered:
Jessy,

I am sorry about your experience. Unfortunately, you found two agents who were very unprofessional and do not deserve to have a real estate license. You should make a complaint to the real estate board both of them belong to as well as DRE at http://www.dre.ca.gov/cons_home.html on the right side it says "file a complaint."

As far as the code for the combo lockbox, it would be a violation IF the transaction did not close yet, but since the house was yours, I don't see anything wrong with that. He/she was just too lazy and probably embarrassed at meet with you to give you the key personally.

I hope you do file a complaint for other consumers they could wrong and for the agents who are doing things the right way.
