If there was a death on the premises, they are required to disclose it: I believe that all over California the limit is three years.
This can be a teriffic impediment for some people, not so much for others.
Sometimes, the circumstances play an import role.

Traffic is another matter:
There are no disclosures about traffic, even on a busy street.
This would fall on the shoulders of the Buyer and I believe should piggy-back visiting the neighborhood for all the other reasons; meeting your new neighbors, how many kids, trucks being worked on front lawns, crime, etc.
I wouldn't think of buying a home for my family without checking out the neighborhood; how about you?

Hi Katie,

You can find a list of the open houses in the area through Trulia - check the following link:,CA/p_oh/

This may not be all of the open houses, but at least it will give you a good place to start. A good agent will also be able to provide you with information on open houses in your area. Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck in your search!

Hi Juan,
The process of selling a current home and purchasing another is fairly common. You list your house for sale and make it contingent upon the purchase of a new home. The purchase of you new home make contingent upon the sale of your existing home. Get preapproved for a new loan amount. Have a realtor crank the numbers of the sale and the purchase so you understand the financial net result. List your existing home and start shopping for a new one.
Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Jane,

In most cases, it depends on the timeframe that was specified in the offer. If your loan/appraisal and inspection contingencies were set at 17 days and those 17 days are not up yet, then you would need to let your agent know that you wish to withdraw your offer. A Cancellation of Escrow will have to be signed by both parties to allow the Escrow Officer to release the earnest money less any costs that have been incurred like appraisal or inspection, or other that might have been billed to escrow. If contingencies were in place and not removed, the seller should not have any claim on the deposit. However, if the the offer was written as non-contingent, then the seller may be entitled to up to 3% if you elected the liquidated damages clause which part of the standard California Association of Realtors purchase agreement. If you did not opt for liquidated damages and your contingency period is up or removed, and you could be found to be in breech of contract, then the seller may try to seek damages which may exceed 3%. In either case, you need to consult with your agent.

You should always pay cash if you can unless you have a place to invest your money that will make you money.
I am in a vacation home area of Western NC (Murphy NC) where we have mountains and fishing, boating and lots of nature. From here if we want a weekend away we can run down to Florida for a little fishing. Most of my clients pay cash unless they are investors also. Then they put 20% down and finance. One place to call home base and another to buy like a repo to clean up and resell for profit.
I hope that helps. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

Banks regards to REO are slow in response they are overwhelmed. Many lenders IF THEY like offer will respond within 5 - 7 working days.

We do instruct our buyers continue our search not all offers EVEN over list price would be accepted based on numerous reasons. I have been listing / buyers agent regards foreclosures, short sales.

Wes Stamey answered:

It may have simply expired in the local MLS. Usually there is a delay in many of the other websites homes are listed on. It may be in your best interest to contact a local Realtor to have them represent you in buying your new home. You could always directly contact the listing agent but remeber that they represent the seller so why not have your own representation!
