Oddvision,

There should be more inventory coming this summer, but the market is on FIRE right now with most propeties getting multiple offers and ALL CASH offers. Get yourself a great Realtor now so that they can explain what is going on and what strategies to use going forward.

Good luck,

Joe Homs, Realtor,

Most likely no. There are homes like this of various types all over and most don't even know they are there. Besides that, never had a buyer say "no, not this neighborhood, there's a ___ home nearby" ... more

You might be asking about an Environmental Hazard Report or Natural Hazard Disclosure Report. The NHD is required by law in California when a proeprty is transferred.

The seller must provide the disclosure report. ... more

Hi Ghenning,

My rule of thumb, if you have to ask if you should disclose something then the answer is to disclose it.

Does the HOA have rules against hard flooring surfaces in upstairs units now? I believe this might affect the price of the unit below.

Sorry to hear this agent gave the advise you mention.

Good luck,
Brian Wilson

Yes and No.
Yes : The listing agent should present the offer to the 3rd party involved ( the bank/s). Wait until the bank counters and let you know about the counter offer.

No: If you send a low ball offer and the listing agent knows that you are not even close to the fair market value, the listing agent might be reluctant to send your offer and take the property out of the market for 1 to 3 months until the bank counters when she or he knows that the bank will come with a counter offer much higher than your low ball offer.

Unfortunately there is no legislation on Short Sales only a set of programs, process, rules that sometimes are bent or adapted.

At the end the bank is always going to try to get a Fair Market Value and that your Buyer Agent can have it if he does a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) or even a simple CMA.

Good Luck with your offer!

You must call the Association or the city to be sure. Also, whether or not it was different for the building phases.

Anna M Brocco answered:
What is your agent advising...keep in mind that if the seller is conducting a short sale, he/she may not have extra money, but you can try asking; to consider, since it's up to the lender to decide to accept, reject or counter offer, not sure the lender would be willing to grant a warranty plan if included in your contract, as short sales are sold as is. ... more

Assuming that you haven't accepted this counter-offer, then you could counter with your previous offer (that the seller accepted), or reject the bank's counter.

Hi Joel,
Are you talking about the small ones that just have people living in a home within the neighborhood? Most likely not at all. Unless there are constantly people coming and going and crowding up the street so there is no parking. I can't think of any reason a buyer would have a problem with a house being used in that manor as long as it was taken care of as well as the other homes in the area are. Are you having trouble with one in yuor neighborhood?

Jason Peebles answered:
I can tell you that in the State of Texas, lease to purchase options do exist and they are not a scam. I have seen a few of them, but you have to make sure that the contract is exacting. You would hate to enter into a lease to purchase and find out at some point that the owner has changed his/her mind about selling to you. I would suggest to you that if you do go this route, have the papers looked over by a real estate attorney. Realtors do not give legal advice and here in Texas, it is best to have an attorney draw up these kinds of documents for this particular type of deal and would imagine that in CA, or anywhere else, having an attorney assist you would be in your best interest. ... more

I imagine you're looking at the home on Amerige.
If done without permits, the appraiser won't add value, and the lender won't take into consideration rents for qualification purposes. ... more

Aaron Zapata answered:
I've never run across that either and I don't know about the Tax credit on that specific situation with the failed loan mod and foreclosure. You should check with your CPA and see what he says. When you find out, I'd love to know. I'm glad to hear that the seller is going to finance them on the mobile home. Good for them! ... more

Karen Parsons Fiddler answered:
Hi,

Yes...you have recourse. You need to confirm all the facts with a real estate attorney, since I am not a lawyer. But since the neighbors mentioned to you that the sellers had this type of problem, then it's clear the sellers knew about it in advance, and it should have been disclosed, especially since it's such a large cost.

I would start by asking your Realtor to reach the seller's Realtor and ask for compensation. Then your agent can advise you on what to do next. The money they gave you for "plumbing repairs" does not take away their obligation to tell you all the problems with the home and this clearly is one.

Good luck with this....if you can't get an immediate result from the sellers...get an attorney's advice.

I would say it is. Keep in mind that they will have an idea of what's wrong with the home and won't cover pre-existing conditions, but it's always safe and wise to have
